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 change 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...
50% Ethiopia Ana Sora Natural
30% Kenya Othaya Chinga Natural
20% Tanzania Burka/Selian Estate Natural
Blueberry, red liquorice, jelly babies
Roast Information Medium dark - slow it down once you reach 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.
