Blake: Black Blend (2010-)


Bean name Blake: Black Blend (2010-)
Other info Blend Profile - bean content varies with season


This is Blake, our black blend. It celebrates a more syrupy, Natural process-led espresso.

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 changes with the seasons, so throughout the year different coffees come and go. As this happens, we update our blends to reflect that seasonality.

Tasting Notes: Plum pudding, toffee, dark chocolate

Recommended Brew Recipe
Dose: 18.5g
Yield: 38g
Brew time: 32-34 seconds
(we recommend this as a starting point that we enjoy, tweak to personal taste)

Roast Information
Medium-dark – slow it down once you reach the crack, and drop this with the very first pops of second crack.

Resting Recommendation
We recommend a 5–7 day rest after the date of roasting before brewing this coffee as espresso, but there's a lot of personal preference in that. So, by all means, please brew whenever you like!
