The 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. As a certified brew master she 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.


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. Welcome to Horsebox Coffee Co., Lesley


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.
