1973 Mk1 2017
50% Nicaragua Finca Escondida Washed Catuai
30% Nicaragua Finca Limoncillo Natural Ethiosar
20% Costa Rica Monte Brisas Salaca Black Honey Typica
What's the answer to everything? 1973, of course.
This is a little bit on an in-joke here at Has Bean, but ask the question to anything and I normally say '1973' before giving the real answer.
So why is this blend called '1973'? Well, because it's the answer to everything! Filter, espresso, cappuccino, flat white, Roland Glew, airports and Chemex (you get the idea). Tired of taking two bottles into the shower? Then this is brew-and-go; you're looking at the answer to all your brewing needs.
As always, I'm not going to keep the components a secret from you:
- 50% Nicaragua Finca Escondida Washed Catuai
- 30% Nicaragua Finca Limoncillo Natural Ethiosar
- 20% Costa Rica Monte Brisas Salaca Black Honey Typica
In the cup expect an amazing amount of balance – we're talking an acrobat on a high wire kinda balance here! Heaps of sweet chocolate work alongside a really nice controlled acidity; meanwhile, lurking in the background, there's a lovely natural funkiness.
