DETAILS

This is Jailbreak, our red blend. It focuses on sweetness, balance, and clarity, while also being easy and super forgiving to work with.

The blend is named after my own personal jail break many years ago. Before the days of Hasbean, I was a prison officer and I roasted coffee in my free time. But Hasbean gave me the opportunity to leave that world behind and live my dream of being a full-time coffee roaster. For a longer version of this story, please have a read of How Hasbean Began. 😊

Our range of coffees here at Hasbean changes with the seasons, so throughout the year different coffees come and go. We update our blends as this happens to reflect that seasonality. The coffees in this season’s Jailbreak are:

  • 40% Costa Rica Sumava Finca Monte Llano Bonito
  • 30% Bolivia Don Carlos Washed Caturra
  • 30% Brazil Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama Natural Canario

In the cup you immediately get brown sugar that mixes beautifully with cocoa. After that there's a shift towards hazelnut with a yellow fruit sweetness which reminds us of apricot jam.
