Iiiiiiiiit's Chriiiiiiistmaaaaaaaas!!!!!

Each and every year since 2006 we've released Christmas blends to celebrate this wonderful time of the year, and this year, despite its obvious challenges, is no exception!

2020's Christmas blend is a bit of a different one to previous years when it comes to flavour, I think we can all agree that 2020 has been far from "normal" so we thought our blend should reflect that. The traditional Christmas-esque tasting notes are a thing of the past this year and are replaced by a super psychedelic mix of floral and fruit flavours which should keep you funking along all the way to the New Year!???? ????

We don't roast our coffee for particular brew methods here at Hasbean, and this blend is a great example of why! We've taken this to a place where each of the components really can shine and you'll get different flavours popping up depending on how you brew it. It's a bit of a cacophony compared to our other blends - boozy funk, florals and fruit all fighting it out - but that's what makes it super interesting and we definitely encourage you to play around with your brewing method and recipe on this one! We hope you have as much fun drinking it as we did coming up with it and enjoy our psychedelic sleigh ride towards 2021!

40% Ethiopia Ana Sora Washed
40% Kenya Kiriga Estate C Washed
20% Honduras Cerro Azul Natural Longberry

No coal in sight here! Instead, you'll get a big dollop of strawberry yoghurt but with a floral edge. Then it swings into papaya, with some funk and bruised plums on the finish.

Strawberry yoghurt, floral, papaya, bruised plums

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!

Roasting Information
