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%

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. 
This coffee is also available as a Brazil single origin.

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.

      Subtle and pleasant flavour

      I tried Workhorse at my daughter's house and was impressed enough to order some. It has a subtle and pleasant flavour, ideal for blending with coarser, stronger types to get their aroma without a headache. Alone it doesn't need the sweetener I usually use.

      I liked this coffee just as much as my usual coffee beans but they cost less so might get them again

      Great coffee

      This is the first time we have ordered from here and are so impressed by the taste, smell, price and information that is supplied about each coffee bean type. Workhorse is a great espresso coffee and will be buying from here again and again!
