Coffee and Tea

Our Coffee

Here at River Café and Bistro Shoreham, we proudly sell a variation of the Nova Espresso blend from Horsham Coffee Roaster.  With Rwandan and Brazilian coffee, it is a high quality, Italian-style dark espresso blend with notes of sweet caramel, dark chocolate and nuts.

Horsham Coffee Roaster began trading on a stall at the Horsham food market. Now this Sussex coffee roaster operates two coffee shops and sells wholesale across the UK and beyond, with a roastery based in Burgess Hill. The company has established partnerships in Rwanda, Kenya and Costa Rica and were the first UK roaster to sign The Pledge at transparency.coffee.  Horsham Coffee Roaster only works with importing partners that match them with farmers and co-operatives that are dedicated to producing the highest possible grade, ethically traded, coffees. They have full traceability of the coffee to its origins, including the financials, so that they can be sure each farmer has been well paid for the excellent coffee they produce. Via One Tree Planted, one tree is planted for every 1kg of Rwandan and Kenyan coffee they sell and alongside low emissions, this planting keeps them beyond carbon neutral.
