Red Blend 08: Jailbreak 2018


Bean name Red Blend 08: Jailbreak 2018
Other info Blend - see description for bean content


This is Jailbreak, our red blend. It focuses on sweetness, balance, and clarity, while also being easy to work with and super forgiving.

The blend is named after my own personal jail break many years ago, before the days of Hasbean I was a prison officer and roasted coffee in my free time - but Hasbean gave me the opportunity to leave that world behind and live my dream of being a full time coffee roaster. For a longer version of this story please have a read of How Hasbean Began : )

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 Jailbreak are...

60% Honduras Cerro Azul Washed Red Catuai
20% El Salvador Finca La Ilusion Washed Bourbon
20% Kenya Othaya Chinga Washed

In the cup you'll get creamy milk chocolate, with hints of caramel and red apple in there. There's a hazelnut edge as it finishes and a light kick of lime too.
