February 2013 - Valentine's Day Massacre
Each month throughout the year there will be a new blend with an original label in a different style of bag. For February there will only be 500 (because of the tiny micro lot of Colombian that brings the floral and champagne effervescence) and each bag will be marked with a unique limited edition number.
These are the blends most roasters would be scared to share with you, but not us fearless souls at Has Bean Towers with our looking outside the box, red sky thinking (I know it's meant to be blue but I think everything should be red) and all the other stupid business sayings you can think of.
In the cup think unbalanced, off the wall experiments that are tasty, but never normal, and always a bit unusual. We have also decided to name them with equally appropriate stupidness!
February's turn, and this time it's with Valentine's Day Massacre, a tip-of-the-hat to Al Capone and the famous gang fight on Valentine's day 1929. Now of course we don't in any way endorse gang fighting, murder, or the mob, but we are 100% behind silly names.
Mobster Leighton insists you try this espresso before prohibition kicks in and we have to remove all coffee from the shelves. Being a coffee geek can be a fairly lonely business, so make sure you get at least one Valentine's day card this year.
In the espresso, this is a little tamer than last month's was (well, it had to be). It's a box of chocolates with champagne effervescence and some amazing floral tones. What else do you need apart from a Valentine's day card to say I love you?
