This is Blake, our black blend. It celebrates a more syrupy, natural process-led espresso. Think dried fruit, dark chocolate and a rich mouthfeel.
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...
- 40% El Salvador Finca Argentina Fincona 1 Natural
- 30% Tanzania Burka/Selian Estate Natural
- 30% Sulawesi Toarco Toraja Washed S795 AA
In the cup expect lots of dark chocolate alongside notes of almond and currant.
