July 2013 Baked Beanz Blend

Available Roasted Beans Only
Also note this will not fit through a standard letterbox.

This is the 7th in a new line of guest coffee blends that 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 tin 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 where we think the unthinkable.

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 unusualness. In honour of Baked Bean month, we celebrate July with a tin of beans and a piece of toast.

In honour of this you will receive a tin of 125 g of roasted El Salvador Finca Argentina Guachapilin Pulped Natural roasted on a slow roasting profile of 15 minutes. This will be full of body and mouthfeel, but lacking in a little sweetness, clarity, and acidity.

You will also receive a bag that contains 125 g of roasted El Salvador Finca Argentina Guachapilin Pulped Natural roasted quickly on a roasting profile of 7 minutes. This will be lacking a little body and mouthfeel, but be full of sweetness and acidity. Try them on their own, then mix them together in the toast bag for a complex one-bean one-varietal blend.

We suggest you try them both on their own with 12g and a cupping bowl (or a cup). Then mix the two together in the toast bag and enjoy as a blend.

We were saving this special lot from Finca Argentina for something special. But it just works on both of these profiles - it chose itself.

When mixed together expect a complex blend that is balanced, with a big body, and a controlled and balanced sweetness of milk chocolate and white grape.
