Foxtail Coffee

I sketched at Foxtail Coffee (1282 N Orange Avenue Winter Park, FL 32789) as part of my series of Orlando’s best cafes. I was working on a book for a London Publisher. Unfortunately that book wasn’t pushed though to publication. I did a series of sketches for several spreads in the book for the book pitch. Unfortunately it want picked up at the London book fair.

I like the relaxed ambiance at Foxtail. People worked away on their computers and cell phones as they sipped their coffee. A separate glass enclosed corner room is where the coffee beans are ground. Shelves of bagged beans lined the shelves and a huge old grinder was ready at a moments notice.

I met the daughter of a friend of mine. It turns out she is a fashion blogger, though I think the fashion photos are posted on Instagram. I am not sure how all that works. She encouraged me to get involved on Instagram and the next week I was up and running. Apparently this is the best business card in this digital age.

Foxtail Coffee Company was founded in December of 2016 with a mission to provide high quality coffee and intuitive work space for local communities in Winter Park and Orlando. Foxtail Coffee Company is dedicated to responsibly sourcing and roasting some of the finest coffee from around the world.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at

Wade Saying,
Foxtail Coffee is dedicated to responsibly sourcing some of the finest coffees from around the world. The company upholds its ethical and quality standards by making sure these environmentally-friendly farms are paid fair wages, so they may continue to grow exceptional crops. Foxtail Coffee also provides a welcoming atmosphere that shifts the way we think of coffee; one cup at a time. Foxtail notes flavours of Brown Sugar, Strawberry, and Floral. This was a tasty bean, cuz you all know I love the naturals.
