Horsebox Coffee Co. is a small, independent coffee roastery based set up by Emily Stewart, on a quiet working farm in South Oxfordshire.

Emily sources carefully and sustainably cultivated green coffee, through a transparent and ethical supply chain. She expertly roasts in small batches using the latest technology to consistently bring out each coffee’s full flavour potential. Emily not only creates their much enjoyed signature blends, but also present a wide selection of seasonal single estate coffees for those looking for a coffee adventure. She is keen to share her passion, knowledge and skills with other coffee lovers, whether that’s the home barista wanting to make a delicious morning brew, or coffee shops, farm shops and restaurants that are just as enthused about delicious and wholesome coffee.

Listen to Emily’s story on S1 E4 of the Independent Oxford Podcast, and read about her journey on the Independent Oxford blog. You can also find Horsebox Coffee Company in the round up of The Best Cafes in Oxford on the Independent Oxford blog.

Emily Stewart Horsebox Coffee Oxford

I’ve been passionate about coffee and the people and process behind the perfect brew for two decades now. Converting my childhood horsebox into a mobile speciality coffee shop and opening our ‘Dark Horse Roastery’ has meant building stronger relationships with fellow coffee lovers and professionals both here and at origin, and learning so much more along the way! I grew up in Oxfordshire and its wonderful being home and sharing this, and most importantly being part of an independent business community, the makers and shakers!

– Emily Stewart, Owner
