Blake Black Blend Coffee
This is Blake, our black blend. It celebrates a more syrupy, Natural process-led espresso and was created to deliver a slightly more punchy 'old school' experience.
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. The coffees in this season’s Blake are:
40% Ethiopia Ana Sora Natural
30% El Salvador Finca Argentina Estate Natural
30% Nicaragua Finca Limoncillo Estate Bourbon
Thick and creamy toffee meets sweet and sticky plum jam with a sprinkling of sultanas in a blend made of 100% naturally processed coffees.
Tasting Notes - Toffee, plum jam, sultana
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 minimum 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!

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes
Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.
If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite.
