Description

Has Bean Premium Blend became so important to Has Bean, but we didn't like the name. It infers that everything else is not premium, and of course it all is.

I decided it was time for a revamp to make all the blends a little more fun. So now we have 'Jailbreak' (a replacement for the Premium and Has Bean Espresso Blends).

This is our house blend that we think is perfect for everyone from the home user right through to the best commercial espresso machines. There is a reason for the name, and I am sure lots of people will get it. It has lots to do with how I got into coffee.

For me a roaster's espresso blend for home users should be:

Good with other brew methods as well as with espresso. This saves customers from needing to have two different blends to hand, which is particularly useful for those who do not get through them very quickly.
Good in a cheaper home machine as well as a top of the range commercial machine.
Good across a range of temperatures and extraction times - it should be forgiving.
Just totally tasty.

This blend does all that and more.

We are very proud of what we do here at Has Bean Coffee. Some roasters will pretend that there is a dark art in blending. We think that good ingredients make a good blend when you think about what you want to achieve. We also don't keep secrets; our blend contains 100% great quality coffee from some of the best single estates in the world, and we are happy to tell you all about them.

Jailbreak consists of...

40% Nicaragua Limoncillo Caturra Washed
40% Costa Rica Don Mayo Finca Bella Vista Villa Sarchi Yellow Honey
20% Costa Rica Finca Herbazu Villa Sarchi Yellow Honey

These are premium coffees that on their own are amazing single origin coffees, but as a blend bring sweetness, acidity, body, and all around deliciousness.
