The Horsebox Team
Emily fell in love with the wonderful world of coffee whilst heading up training and operations for a new café concept back in the nineties. Further inspired by a trip to coffee origin, Machu Pichu Peru in 2002 she soon after became a member of the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe and pursued a career as an independent professional barista and trainer. After graduating from the SCAE authorised trainer programme in Trieste she became an ambassador for the SCAE regularly delivering their professional barista certification programme.
Emily is also a certified brew master, and since has undertaken further training in green coffee & processing, cup tasting and roasting skills. She was lucky enough to be immersed in the London speciality coffee revolution during the noughties.
Since moving back to her home town in Oxfordshire to bring up her family Emily has continued to work as a professional barista, trainer and consultant. She also enjoys exploring the world of coffee through home brewing, and sharing her knowledge locally through talks and pop up events.
Tracey is the newest member of the horsebox team, you’ll see her out and about in Deux Chevaux Espresso. Tracey’s background is behind the scenes of TV production, but as a fellow foodie, coffee lover and animal lover (dogs as well as horses) we are certain she’ll be the star of the show.
Sally and Emily became good friends through their horses and enjoy working together in the horsebox. Sally is an experienced and talented barista as well as having run her own deli. With a past career in management and training she is highly organised and a real people person. This all-round lovely lady is our pioneer for customer service.
David is our Chef extraordinaire and a very talented baker, creator of the legendary ‘Horsebox Brownie’, other delights and all matters food.
Taking an unusual path into food David’s C.V. includes stage director, record shop manager, BT operator and pub licensee before he realised that he could, and loved to cook! With no formal training just many years shopping, cooking and eating his way around Italy, David eventually found himself as head chef at the Ashmolean, Oxford. Here he was in charge of their acclaimed café, corporate dining and private functions. Now semi- retired, we are very lucky to have him on board ensuring our food offering lives up to our coffee.
