WorkhorseHorsham Coffee Roaster
Workhorse is built around the concept of consistency and reliability. These coffee beans feature our relationship coffees produced by hard working farmers around the world and purchased by us in large volumes. 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.
Tasting notes: Nutty, chocolate body with sweet caramel, orange and citrus notes
Liza co-operative, Rwanda 50% (relationship coffee)
Varietal: Red Bourbon
We first visited Rwanda in 2014 and over the last few years we've developed some very close relationships within the Rwandan coffee community. In 2018 we visited Liza washing station for the first time after discovering their coffee during the 2017 harvest cupping. The washing station is owned by Jean Paul (far left in the above picture). He is a second generation coffee farmer who has worked for many years as an agronomy consultant both in Rwanda and the Congo. His farm has about 6000 trees and he processes coffee from his own farm and from several hundred local small hold farmers within the community. The quality he produces is outstanding and this is due to his dedication and commitment to training local farmers and focusing on very careful hand sorting at the washing station. Jean Paul produces a variety of different microlots specifically for us, these include washed coffees and bespoke experimental process coffees.
Varietal: Yellow Bourbon
Altitude: 1100-1450 masl
Located in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. This coffee is grown, harvested and processed by 720 small farms. We've selected this natural processed Mundo Novo varietal for its nutty, chocolate body. Perfect as the base for our Workhorse blend.
Ideal for: Espresso. Works very well in milk based drinks. If you like a more traditional filter or aeropress (lots of chocolate notes with good body) then this will work very well.
- We recommending buying whole bean coffee and grinding before brewing. We also sell 250g bags pre-ground. 1kg bags are available as wholebean only.
- Next working day dispatch on all coffee orders.
A gift for a coffee lover who hold Horsham Coffee in high regard
Great all round coffee, perfect if you don't want something to out there.
A pleasant blend with some subtle flavours. We make our coffee in a french press and so use a coarse grind. Very pleased with the result.
We have tried out this coffee or the first time & have received good feedback from this
