Tis the season to be jolly (and way over worked if you have a coffee website). With Christmas coming we wanted to make sure you had the widest range of coffees available. Were still adding now, but its been a real feast of new coffees, so I thought I’d share them with you. You can also keep an eye on new coffees at the link below
Its not christmas if its not the cleverly names Christmas Filter and Christmas Espresso Blend. The Christmas filter is for ……. filter coffees and the Christmas espresso is for …..espresso. The confusing part is they both taste amazing in other brew methods so it makes a real mockery of it all.
There once was a time I wouldn’t buy Pacamara beans. I thought they all tasted savoury and meh ! I’d tasted other roasters ones, and I’d sample roasted a heap, and overtime mushroom soup. But I didn’t realise that if you roast them differently to other coffees you really can bring out something amazing. Now we have so many pacamaras we are spoiled.
We have 8 different types (process and colour) from just one farm. We added the latest ones in the Yellow pacamaras this month
With this one causing us such a problem we couldn’t do our normal cupping notes, as we couldn’t decide if it was amazing or so different we couldn’t stock it.
First time I’ve had to issue a warning on a coffee.
You can try them all here at a special price
While we are on packs, this time of year we always release the Potero Pack
5 coffees all different honeys and a super special geisha to boot, sounds like perfect christmas drinking to me.
While I have your Geisha attention how about another. A brand new farm this year for us Costa Rica Dona Daisy finca Don Pepe
Ever heard of a farm called Finca De Licho ? Then why have you not been listening to me as I rave about them every year. We got offered just one bag of another pacamara from them and we jumped at it, not something you see every day
If you came to The Manchester coffee festival in November, you will have witnessed the bromance of Alejandro Martinez of Finca Argentina in El Salvador and Brian from Kiriga in Kenya. It got us thinking what if we took both their coffees and made a blend, and here it is.
You think I can’t top all these right ? Well lets have a go. One of my all time favourite coffees and producers is Neto from fame such as La Ilusion, Los Brumas, Alaska, Los Andes, and I’m always happy when this coffee arrives. Last year we had little to no natural, this year Neto did a little more for us, because for me, this natural makes the best cappuccino I’ve ever drunk. If you have never tried this coffee, you 100% have to !! Its amazing.
How crazy is this, all in a week we have added these coffees. But I’m still not done.
Every year we like to do something a little special for the very special Has Bean Fans. The die hards who trust us and like to have fun at the same time.
This year we have decided to do something really different. You have to trust me. I’m going to send you 2 x 125g bags of coffee. One marked 1 (for Christmas day) and 2 (for boxing day). You won’t know what they are, how they are from until I social media it on both days.
What I can tell you about them is one of them is a very special coffee you wiped out in just a couple of days because it won something, and one is a coffee we have had washed from Africa and we luckily fell upon 1 bag of natural from there that blew our mind. Both of them are not for sale now and one of them we never have sold it. And trust me this is what I will be drinking on both days, special coffees I want to share with special friends.
The fun part is they come in a lovely presentation box, and inside two christmas crackers.
So you can see we have been busy. Trust me theres more too in the coming weeks, always exciting times around the corner, but I’m enjoying this corner very much.
