||Black Blend 7: Blake 2018
||Blend - see description for bean content
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 'oldschool' 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% Guatemala El Bosque Washed
25% Guatemala El Limon Natural Caturra
25% El Salvador Finca La Ilusion Natural Bourbon
In the cup expect a mix of dark chocolate and walnuts. There's a sprinkle of currants in too, then just a shoulder of apple like acidity brings it all together.
"Quick Look" Guide:
Dark chocolate, walnut, currant, apple.
Medium dark - slow it down once you reach crack and drop this with the very first pops of second crack.
