Jabberwocky Espresso Blend Mk1 2017
60% Kenya Kieni AA
40% El Salvador San José Washed Red Bourbon
'Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!'
This is one of our most popular blends, but I always think that it sits a tiny touch in the shadow of the Jailbreak blend.
We wanted to give Jabberwocky some major love because it's always a solid performer, always dishing out delicious coffee in every direction. With this re-jig, we're putting the Jabberwock centre stage and showing the world what he can really do: there's no point hiding behind a Tumtum tree with your Vorpal sword! this beast cannot be slain!
Why Jabberwocky? Well, in case you haven't guessed from the various references so far, it's a famous Lewis Carroll poem from 'Alice in Wonderland'. It's always been my favourite poem. The verse just seems to fit this blend perfectly and, as with all our blends, it offers a personal link. This time it's that the poem was written in the home of Lewis Carroll's parents just outside Sunderland, and I am a huge Sunderland football fan.
This is a fruity, challenging, bright, citrus-y, and acidity-based blend. It has a sweet kick at the end.

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
Fruity, challenging, bright, citrus acidity, sweet.
