Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue shriller than all the music
Cry "Caesar!" Speak, Caesar is turn'd to hear.

Beware the ides of March.

What man is that?

A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.

March isn't just a month to beware the ides of, March is also for mixing so to celebrate I'm going a little bit blend crazy...every week throughout the month of March I'll be releasing a new blend! Each one will be delicious no matter how you brew it, whether you're a fan of espresso or filter (or both!) I've got you covered ; )

Fancy being ahead of the curve? Here at Has Bean we're always riding the crest of the wave and are giving you the chance to be ahead of that crest! (so flying just in front of the wave I guess!) Each blend will be released on a Monday but if you'd like to receive a bag before everyone else you can sign up to a 4 week subscription and be sent a bag on the Friday before general release. For example a blend will be released on Monday March the 2nd but if you are a subscriber your bag will be roasted + posted Royal Mail First Class on Friday February 27th, after that the next blend will be released on Monday March the 9th but your bag will be roasted + posted on Friday March the 6th, and so on...

So I guess you're wondering what to expect? As if I'm going to tell you that! Let me ask you a question, do you trust me? What do you mean no?! Yes of course you trust me! I've got 4 amazing blends planned that I think you're going to really love : ) If you walk into a quality butchers and ask for some of something good you know you're going to be in for a treat, you put trust in your butcher to give you something you're going to really enjoy and time after time they deliver amazing tasty things, this is just the same. Put your trust in me for 4 weeks to deliver delicious coffee : )

The cost of the subscription for 4 bags over 4 weeks is £24.00, that's £6.00 per bag including Royal Mail First Class postage. You will be sent 1 bag a week for 4 weeks throughout March, the bags will be roasted + posted on the following dates...

The Ides of March 2015 No2, Friday March 6th, 2015 - Here’s Johnny!

It's time to celebrate a certain kind of coffee that we really love here at Has Bean Towers, we've decided to take a bit of a turn for the Kubrick with a blend as naturally processed as we could make it, something to put the cat among the pigeons and cause a bit of a ruckus! It is with great pleasure that I give you Here's Johnny!

Constructed 100% of naturally processed coffees it's a blend made to do amazing things to your tastebuds. This blend was created to make a big BOOM sound when you see it, smell it, touch it, grind it, sip it and love it!

What's a naturally processed coffee? Well I might have made a video to explain...

As you may have guessed from the label the name is inspired by that scene from The Shining, a moment of crazy inspiring a blend of crazy, perfect!

This is a blend that's going to treat you well no matter how you brew it, pull it as espresso or put it through your Chemex or plunge it in your French Press, whatever you fancy! The naturals in there are going to create a taste unlike any other blend you've tried in recent memory.

So I'm sure you're wondering what's in this blend of almighty peculiarity? Well...

40% Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere Kore Natural
40% Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Sedie Natural
20% Kenya Othaya Chinga Natural SL28 SL34 NH

Boom, boom & BOOM!
