March 19th New Coffees

It’s that wonderful time again! The time where I let you know about exciting new coffees that have just gone on the website! These might be the last changes for a little bit but the wait will totally be worth it because THE BOLIVIANS ARE COMING!! And they’ll be next : D but for now, deliciousness from Burundi, Yemen and Colombia + a blend of 3 Peaberries…

Kibingo Washed Bourbon

Haraaz Red Cherry Natural
Haraaz, Yemen
Black cherry, cacao, allspice

As a little something special and to help get the ball rolling on these coffees I’m going to offer a sneaky Steve discount on them all until the end of tomorrow, it’s also a nice little prize for reading all the way to the bottom of this post because you should always read all the way to the bottom or who knows what you might miss out on?! If you order any (or all!) of the 4 coffees above between now and 23:59 pm on Tuesday the 20th of March and enter ‘Hasblog‘ into the discount code box it’ll knock a rather kind, generous and sneaky 15% off.

New Coffee Update

Hello you lovely people, Steve here with an update on a few new coffees that have gone onto the website over the last 2 weeks but unfortunately I haven’t found time to shout about.

It’s been a bit of a funny couple of weeks, lots of travelling for me mixed with super naff weather in the UK and then our water + electricity supplies trying to make friends : ( we’ve been doing our very best at Hasbean Towers to carry on as normal despite the challenges that have been thrown at us, but unfortunately I did slip a little letting you know about the most delicious new things to hit the website : ( BUT here we are! So let’s get on with the tasty…

Hilda Pacha Washed Caturra
Zamora – Chinchipe, Ecuador
Brown sugar, toffee, watermelon

Fazenda Inglaterra Pulped Natural Bourbon
Minas Gerais, Brazil
White sugar, Scottish tablet, walnut

Baker’s chocolate, date, pecan

Tana Toraja Kalosi Washed Peaberry

Water, water, everywhere. And all the (fuse) boards did shrink

Hello and good evening from a very soggy Hasbean Towers everyone.

It is with a heavy heart that I come to you with some very sad news, I don’t think we’re going to be able to roast any coffee tomorrow : (

I popped into the roastery this evening and was met with a scene that I certainly wasn’t expecting, it appears a water pipe has burst = / on its own that would have been fine and fixable, but it has burst all over the fuse board and various other electrical things so there’s no power and everything is rather soaked.

We have a wonderful plumber and awesome electrician getting to us first thing tomorrow morning to do all they can to help, but as of right now I’m not sure what they’re going to tell me when they’ve seen what I’ve seen.

Because of the damage I do not think we are going to be able to roast any coffee on Monday the 5th of March. If we can get things sorted tomorrow, we will. If we can roast coffee tomorrow, we will.

All orders that don’t have coffee on them will go out as normal (as long as we can get power to the computers) but any orders with coffee on them will probably be delayed until Tuesday, March 6th at the earliest.

I’m so, so sorry for the delay that this is going to cause. We’ll process + ship every single order that we can as soon as we can, I promise. I was so happy that I thought we’d fought off the bad weather last week, but it appears to have waited for us to leave then snuck in over the weekend to cause mischief.

Please keep an eye on Twitter (@hasbean), Facebook (@hasbeancoffee) and Instagram (@hasbean) for updates, or email us at if you have any questions – I’ll do my best to keep you all in the loop.

Lots of love from a soggy Staffordshire coffee roaster,


UK Weather Warning

As you may have seen in the news (or outside your window if you’re in the United Kingdom!) there’s currently quite a bit of bad weather around. Storm Emma is rolling in and meeting the “Beast from the East” to = a lot of weather warnings all across the country and 1 very cold, windy and white UK .

I wanted to update you on how things are going here in Stafford – it’s business as usual for us! We’re all here at the roastery doing our usual Hasbeany things so if you’ve placed an order, we’re on it! If you’re thinking of placing an order, do it! We’re here! Thankfully we are based on an industrial estate with a major haulier and their trucks do a very good job of clearing the roads for us and, as of right now, Stafford has not been hit too badly by the weather. For sure it’s pretty cold and white out there, but we’ve got coffee to roast!

However – I’d like you to take a moment to think of your postie or local DPD driver…it can not be nice or easy to be in their shoes with the weather like this and so I ask you to please be patient where delivery is concerned. We’re doing all we can to keep things running as normal and I know Royal Mail + DPD are doing the same, but that’s no easy task when there are severe weather warnings across a lot of the country.

Between us we’ll do our very best to get your order to you as soon as possible, but there might be some delays because of the weather.

For updates on delivery services in the UK please check the following websites…

Royal Mail:


DPD are also keeping customers updated about their deliveries via tracking notifications so please keep an eye on your emails, text messages and/or Your DPD app for up to date news on your delivery direct from DPD.

If you have any questions about ordering or deliveries please get in touch with us at and we’ll do all we can to help.

I hope you’re wrapped up safe + warm, not too far away from a tasty + delicious coffee : )

New Coffees!

Hi hi hello there folks!

Yes I know I normally post on social media when I have some new coffees to share with you but to be totally honest I’ve got so many on the way that I’m not sure I want to fill your newsfeeds with that many individual tweets, FB posts and Instagrams! So I’ve decided that I’m going to try and focus the releases into small batches where a couple of coffees will go on at once and then I’m going to do a blog post (just like this!) letting you know about all the new tasty and delicious things.

“OK shhh now Steve stop telling me about telling me things and how about you let me know about these new coffees that I came here to find out about?!”

Yeah yeah alright! I just like to chat sometimes so – heeeeey good lookin’ (that’s me!) whaaaaaat ya got cookin’…

5 coffees from Beto @ El Limon in Guatemala! And a naturally processed Canario from Fazenda de Cachoeira in Brazil I’ve got a big folder of pictures and videos from my recent visit to El Limon that I’m working to get up on Flickr for you to all enjoy, have selected some of my favourites as the product images for the new El Limons : )

Guatemala El Limon Natural Pacamara
Papaya, floral, blackcurrant
In the cup this is a sweet papaya blended up with a bunch of geraniums! At the start of the sip there’s papaya, then a twist towards floral and I’m going to be specific here – geranium, finally finishing off with blackberry. As it cools you can also expect to see a little black tea starting to appear, a delicious, layered and really interesting cup.
£9.00 for 250, £34.20 for 1kg

Guatemala El Limon Washed Pacamara
Orange mousse, blackcurrant
In the cup this coffee is super creamy and smooth, think orange mousse and a blackcurrant aftertaste that goes on and on.

Guatemala El Limon Natural Caturra
Sultana, papaya, glacé cherry
In the cup think black tea with sultanas floating in it, shall we call it sulTEAna?! Then comes the acidity of papaya and glacé cherry, a really complex and interesting coffee.
£6.50 for 250g, £24.70 for 1kg

Guatemala El Limon Black Honey x Natural
Marzipan, fig, hazelnut
In the cup this super sweet and complex cup immediately hits you with Marzipan, which is closely followed by something else sweet and delicious, fig! There’s then a really rather delicious hazelnut finish that is long and true.
£7.00 for 250g, £26.60 for 1kg

Guatemala El Limon Washed Pache
Yoghurt, lemon rind, dark chocolate
In the cup this reminds me of Greek yoghurt and lemon rind but the finish does a right turn into dark chocolate and delicate allspice.
£8.00 for 250g, £30.40 for 1kg

Brazil Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama Natural Canario
Cacao nibs, treacle toffee, peanut
