April 2013 - Sweep Stake
This is the fourth in a new "stable" of guest coffee blends we will be introducing in 2013. Each month there will be a new blend of which there will be an original label in a different style of bag, of which there will only be 500 and each bag 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 its 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 and pushing the boundaries.
We have also decided to name them with equally appropriate stupidness. And 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 guise of boozy fruitiness with a dark chocolate overtone and a big (horse) body, then a galloping aftertaste that I bet you will love.
