TikToker Chris Olsen has launched his sustainable coffee brand Flight Fuel. The brand launches with three blends of whole beans (LHR – Cowboy, SFO – Caramel & DCA – Hazelnut) and two coffee concentrates (LAX – Vanilla & JFK – Caramel), with each product named after one of the major airports across the globe. All of Flight Fuel’s flavoured coffees are priced between $20-$22 and are specialty grade, single origin coffee, roasted in small batches to a smooth medium. Flight Fuel is available direct to consumer at flightfuelcoffee.com, with subscription options available for frequent flyers.
Flight Fuel’s name is inspired by Chris’s celebrated “Flying for Coffee” series. What first began with a video of Chris flying across the country to bring coffee to a friend quickly grew into a viral phenomenon with over 140+ million views of the series on TikTok alone. Chris has since delivered coffee to the likes of Vice President Kamala Harris, Austin Butler, Drew Barrymore, Meghan Trainor, Sabrina Carpenter, Noah Centineo, Ashley Tisdale and many more.
Speaking about the launch, Chris said “Coffee has been a passion of mine for years, so launching Flight Fuel is a dream come true. This brand is over a year in the making, from taste testing to developing the brand identity, and I’m so excited to finally deliver this first-class coffee to the world!”
Sustainability is at the forefront of the brand’s mission. All of Flight Fuel’s shipping partners are 100% carbon neutral across the entire supply chain, with an offset carbon footprint across its fulfilment network. The brand has also partnered with Ecologi, who will plant a tree with every sale made through the website. Flight Fuel also offers stainless steel travel mugs and a reusable cup to encourage consumers to reduce their use of single-use paper and plastic cups.
