Workhorse Coffee Beans is built around the concept of consistency and reliability. The blend and roast style make this coffee suitable for all brew methods including espresso. 

These coffee beans feature our Rwanda relationship coffees produced by farmers in Rwanda that we've visited. This gives us consistency over the course of the year enabling us to provide a reliable and dependable taste profile. From time to time the ingredients will change but we aim to substitute similar coffees when changing this blend.

Our Workhorse blend is a light roast espresso and perfect if you like a bright, juicy but well balanced espresso. If you are looking for a traditional Italian style espresso take a look at our Nova Blend. 

El Salvador El Roble Black Honey 20% 
Varietal: Caturra and Catuai
Process: HSF
Altitude: 1450-1650masl

El Roble is owned by the Salaverria family and is part of the Los Nogales estate. They operate the estate as small seperate sub farms allowing them to keep the varietals seperate. This year we selected an exclusive black honey process from the El Roble farm. The coffee has been carefully hand harvested after which the pulp has been removed but a large amount of mucilage has been left on the beans. The coffee was then dried on raised african beds for about 20 days. 

Rwanda Bwishaza Co-operative Washing station,  30% (relationship coffee)
Varietal: Red Bourbon
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1650+masl

We first visited Rwanda in 2014 and over the last few years we've developed some very close relationships within the Rwandan coffee community. We first visited Bwishaza co-operative in 2015 and have been buying coffee from them every year. You can read more about this via our transparency report. 

Bwishaza co-operative is located north of Kibuye close to lake Kivu. You can view the exact location via the link to google maps. The co-operative produces a wide range of speciality lots using techniques that focus on really good quality control. We've selected this lot for our Workhorse blend and feature other coffees from Bwishaza as single origins in our Relationship coffee collection. 

Brazil Recanto Farm 50%
Varietal: Various
Process: Pulped Natural
Altitude: +-1000 masl

Recanto is a large farm that grows a wide range of varietals and focuses on producing really great coffees. We've selected this particular coffee as it has a traditional nutty, chocolate, sweet profile that works particularly well in a blend designed for espresso. The farm is both Rainforest Alliance and UTZ certified. You can also purchase this coffee as a single origin from Brazil. 

Ideal for: Espresso. Works very well in milk based drinks. If you like a slightly darker roast filter coffee or cafetiere with lots of body, and tend to use milk, then this will work well too. 

  • We recommending buying whole bean coffee and grinding before brewing. We also sell 250g bags pre-ground. 1kg bags are available as wholebean only.
  • Same working day dispatch on orders placed pre 10am.
