May 2014 - Jabberwocky
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!"
Here at Has Bean every now and then we like to shake things up, rattle the cage and go a little mad...right now is 1 of those times and it gives me great pleasure to present to you the all new JABBERWOCKY!
So this is 1 of our most popular blends but I think always sits a tiny touch in the shadow of Jailbreak, we wanted to give it some major love as it's always a solid performer dishing out delicious coffee in every direction. With this rejig we're putting the Jabberwock centre stage and showing the world what he can really do, no point hiding behind a Tumtum tree tree with your vorpal blade, this beast can not be slain!
Thanks to our friends at Tentacle Media we've got some new absolutely fantastic looking artwork, while I'm super sad to see the old design go it's so amazingly exciting to have a new label and wow, just wow, look at it! Then there's the video too, take a look at the video review tab if you don't believe me...
Why Jabberwocky? Well in case you haven't guessed from the various references so far it's a famous Lewis Carroll poem from 'Alice in Wonderland'. It's always been my favourite poem. The verse just seems to fit this blend perfectly and as with all our blends it offers a personal link, the poem was written in the home of Lewis Carroll's parents just outside Sunderland, and I am a huge Sunderland football fan.
This is a fruity, challenging, bright citrus acidity based blend with a sweet kick at the end.

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
