This is Blake, our black blend. It celebrates a more syrupy, Natural process-led espresso.
The name Blake is a hat-tip to my old school, Blake Comprehensive, and also a nod to the origins of this blend. It was created to deliver a slightly more punchy 'old school' experience, so the name of my old school felt like a perfect fit!
Our range of coffees here at Hasbean changes with the seasons, so throughout the year different coffees come and go. As this happens, we update our blends to reflect that seasonality. The coffees in this season’s Blake are:
40% El Salvador Finca La Ilusion Natural
40% Ethiopia Sharo Natural
20% India Balmaadi Natural
Black cherry, cream, dark chocolate
Roast Information Medium-dark – slow it down once you reach the crack, and drop this with the very first pops of second crack.
Resting Recommendation We recommend a 5–7 day rest after the date of roasting before brewing this coffee as espresso, but there's a lot of personal preference in that. So, by all means, please brew whenever you like! But we recommend allowing 5–7 days.
