In 2011 we quit our careers working the 9-5 (although it was more like an 8-8) to spend a year backpacking across the world! When we arrived Melbourne, Australia we discovered Aussie style coffee and we knew instantly that we had to bring this style of coffee back to the UK. We didn’t realise it at the time but at that moment, Lost Sheep Coffee was born.
In 2012 we purchased a three wheeled micro coffee van and pitched up on Canterbury high street. Our aim was simple, introduce our local community to Aussie Speciality Coffee. In 2014 we upgraded to our Lost Sheep Coffee Pod and in 2015 we opened a second location in Ashford, at the McArthurglenn Designer Outlet.
In 2017 we upgraded our Canterbury Pod and opened what would become our award winning Speciality Coffee Roastery in Whitstable, Kent. We roast and send out beans and capsules to our wonderful customers all over the world as well as suppling our fantastic wholesale customers.
We work hard to source beans ourselves directly where possible from the family farms. We then proudly hand roast these carefully selected coffee beans in small batches, at our award winning sheep HQ in the vibrant seaside town of Whitstable in Kent.
