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.

Brazil Inhame Farm 50%
Varietal: Catuai
Process: Natural
Altitude: +-1200 masl

Brazil Inhame is a small family farm with 28 hectares of coffee trees located near to the town of Campos Altos. We were introduced to the farm by Bruno Souza, owner of Academia do Cafe, a Q Grade, coffee farmer and one of the most experienced coffee professionals in Brazil. 

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.

      At last, I’ve found the best!

      Having recently moved to the UK, I was struggling to find a decent bean for my Rocket Espresso at home. I find most beans are roasted too dark for my liking.

      I was so excited though when I tasted the Workhorse bean at a local coffee shop, that I immediately ordered for my home use. At last, a quality espresso at home.

      Thank you Horsham!

      Workhorse

      Having tried Workhorse at Bacca’s Coffee shop and then lockdown hit I got beans to grind at home myself and have been hooked since. It’s beautifully rich and smooth. Not to strong by not so weak. Still my favourite blend after trying a number of others

      Taste unbelievable

      Will definitely by this coffee again
      Love the after taste of this coffee

      Now getting the best out of this fine blend

      Having had this coffee a few times before and really liked it using a modded cheap burr grinder, it really comes into its own now that a more professional grinder as more flovours have been unmasked, great work by Horsham coffee roasters

      Beautiful Coffee

      The coffee is delicious and there’s great variety. Since finding Horsham Roasters I haven’t used anywhere else.

      One of the best yet

      A brilliant filter coffee, juicy and packed full of flavour.
