Where to find the cafe.
This is where the roasting magic happens; the flagship cafe and roastery for the iconic Flying West are based in Doonan, 15 minutes drive from Noosa Heads. The name inspired by the owners Ben and Nina West, who have created a contemporary setting in an industrial space with clean white walls, hanging plants and rustic carpentry. A far cry from the “Tender Shed” this warehouse used to be known as.
20 years of roasting and serving coffee
Flying West has been roasting coffee beans for 20 years, coming from humbler beginnings, first serving their coffee ‘Don Benucci Noosa ‘, on-site at the renowned Eumundi Markets. Fast forward, they are now one of the regions most popular coffees; you will see the well-known West motorbike brand all over the area. Steadily spreading into New South Wales and Brisbane, it’s hard to stop this delicious, flavoursome coffee from growing in popularity. You will find this aromatic bean served in Noosa Marina Harbour Wine Bar, Kelly’s at Peregian, Organika, Little Blackbird Cafe, The Shop Coolum and of course, where things began Eumundi Markets.
