Ask the Roaster
Hit the link to read about Kit and his adventures in Coffee.
Lost Horizon’s founder, Kit, fell in love with roasting coffee whilst working as an engineer many moons ago. Since then, his passion and desire to create fantastic coffee hasn’t wavered.
Motivated by sustainable living (and caffeine), he particularly enjoys tinkering with machinery, staring at roast graphs, and drinking lots of coffee.
Named after a century-old book depicting ‘Shangri-la’ (a utopian land where people live long, contented lives eating stimulating berries), Lost Horizon was founded in an attempt to make utopian fantasy a liquid reality.
Beans are chosen on the condition the farmers are treated fairly and each batch creates a more sustainable living for growers. This allows developing communities to raise the quality of produce every year. It’s a win-win situation
We offset the carbon produced (from farm to cup) twice. This means we give back double the resources used, including boiling your kettle to brew it. Working with our partners Reforestum, trees are planted in their forest, Genesis, in Spain.

Kit got in touch with us and when we spoke to him we could feel the passion he had for both the coffee he roasted and environment. He sent us some samples and we had a hard time working out which of the excellent coffees to include in the first subscription that we brought him into... a good dilemma to have.
