April 2013 Sweep Stake Espresso Blend


And they're off.................

This is the fourth in a new "stable" of guest coffee blends we are introducing in 2013. Each month there will be a new blend for which there will be an original label in a different style of bag, and of which there will only be 500 made. 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 (horse) box, red (rum) 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 are always a bit unusual and pushing the boundaries.

We have also decided to name them with equally appropriate stupidness. In honour of the horse racing giant of the Grand National, this one gets called Sweep Stake.

This one gives you the chance of winning the price of your coffee back. Each bag will have a member of the Has Bean Team on it. At the end of April on the 30th we will have the race that decides the winner. If your team member wins then you send in a photo of your pack with the limited edition number showing and you win the price of your coffee back in Has Bean vouchers. In the cup expect big sticky sweetness, with a hoof of a kick in the guys of boozy fruitiness with a dark chocolate overtone and a big (horse)body and galloping aftertaste, which I bet you will love.

50% Costa Rica Finca Bella Vista;
30% Brazil Passeio Icatu Natural;
