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 and pursued a career as an independent professional barista, trainer and café consultant. After graduating from the SCA authorised trainer programme in Trieste she became an ambassador for the SCA regularly delivering their professional barista certification programme. Emily is also a certified brew master, and has undertaken further training in green coffee, processing, cup tasting and roasting. Whilst running and developing the business she is enjoying the continual learning process of speciality coffee.
Tracey joined us to help run ‘Deux Chevaux Espresso’. You’ll see this lovely lady out and about in our vintage 2CV and sometimes in the horsebox too! Tracey’s background is behind the scenes of TV production, but as a fellow foodie and coffee lover 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, a pioneer for our customer service.
David is our Chef and very talented baker, creator of the legendary ‘Horsebox Brownie’.
David’s previous role was 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.
Nic’s a local lad but has spent many years working abroad and brings back a wealth of experience and skills. Most notably having spent the last 6 years running a thriving independent and quirky café in Cape Town. Nic came on board to indulge his passion for speciality coffee but has added to our style with his personality and eye for vintage finds. He also brings with him ‘Red Espresso’ a delicious alternative to coffee made from Red bush tea, grown only in the Cederberg region of South Africa.
