October 2013 Alchemy Blend

This is the 10th 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 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 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.

This comes from the winner of the invention blend of August and the creation of Abigail Weston who also came up with the label too. 

So What is Alchemy ?

"A process by which paradoxical results are achieved or incompatible elements combined with no obvious rational explanation."

Well we think Abigail came up with gold.

  • 60% Costa Rica La Pira Tarrazu Washed Caturra
  • 30% Kenya Gachika Washed SL28 Peaberry
  • 10% El Salvador Finca Santa Petrona Natural Red Bourbon

In the cup expect floral tones with huge acidity, Peaches creamy with the hint of blackcurrant and sherry, but this is a real acidity monster.
