Emily fell in love with the wonderful world of coffee whilst working in training and operations for a small café chain 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 and trainer. As a certified brew master she has undertaken further training in green coffee, processing, cup tasting and roasting. Whilst running and developing Horsebox Coffee Co. she is enjoying the continual learning process of speciality coffee.
For Garry, like many, working in coffee started with a part-time barista job whilst studying. Quickly becoming aware of the vast variety of flavours and possibilities coffee has to offer, he took a complete career change. Soon he was running coffee shops before moving into training and then roasting. With more than 14 years’ experience, including delivering the NVQ barista course and completing the SCA coffee diploma, he is a firm believer that there is always something new to learn and explore.
David, now semi-retired after a long career as a chef, is our very talented baker and the creator of the legendary ‘Horsebox Brownie’ and other treats. Having lived for many years in Italy, and being a huge fan of espresso, he is also very much part of our quality control panel.
This is Lesley, our inaugural Deux Chevaux Espresso partner. Lesley is into all things gastronomic and that of course includes coffee. A fully fledged barista, vintage vehicle lover and, would you believe it, horsey too. It was meant to be.
Felipa has followed the Horsebox since our first event in 2015. Felipa’s background is in PA and admin roles but she is very much into flavours and coffee shop culture. She has come on board to keep the roastery organised and help us look after our customers.
Emma is a super barista, having worked in numerous cafés from busy contract catering sites to a speciality roastery café. Emma got into coffee whilst traveling and working in cafés abroad but, like many of us here at Horsebox Coffee Co., grew up with horses and feels very much at home in the horsebox.
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.
