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.

Tasting notes: Nutty, chocolate body with sweet caramel, orange and citrus notes

Brewing: This coffee works well with all filter brewers and espresso. For filter we recommend a 1 - 15 brew ratio, and for espresso a 1 - 2.1 brew ratio. 
Example: 
Filter: 17g - 250ml // Espresso: 18g - 38ml
 

Bwishaza Co-operative Washing station, Rwanda 50% (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.

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 dark 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.

      Very difficult to navigate a jungle full of coffee suppliers these days. To get the best coffee requires patience, knowledge and to know the right people.
      Horsham Coffee probably the best coffee I’ve tasted in few years. Current machine La Marzocco Mini; produces the finest crema from these beans.

      Highly recommended!!!
      Taste is sublime. Fast delivery!!
