  1. Hi, Looking for people's opinion on coffee subscriptions and whose the best to recommend. I've recently had coffee from Rave and HasBean and loved them both. Quite often delivery can be expensive hence the subscription thoughts. HasBean do a monthly direct debit over 12 months for £6.50 per month including delivery. This sounds very tempting. What so people think of HasBean subscription? You never know what your getting so could be a gamble? Anyone else worth considering? I'm down to my last bag so need to get some ordered lol Thanks, Paul
  2. The coffee gods were looking down on me today, all my deliveries came earlier than expected and all within half an hour of each other! Thanks to @DaveP for the packaging the Mignon so well and sending so promptly and thanks to @Juba for sending his left over acrylic pipe to make a single dose hopper - You've got to love this forum! Now how long will the four bags of HasBean last...
  3. Apologies if this has been posted but I searched and couldn't see it: Sprudge have reported that Ozone and Has Bean are combining ownership.
  4. I'm wondering, has been anyone got a good shot following the recommended recipe for this blend? Brew Recipe Recommendation Dose: 18.8g Yield: 32g Time: 31-34 seconds https://www.hasbean.co.uk/products/black-blend I find it very very strong. I don't find it drinkable without milk or water. Ratio is 1:1.7 I don't know if it's me or what. Anyone like it this way? Also, who is designing these recipes? Steve? 18.8 dose? Not 19 or 18.5? 18.8! really?? The Red Blend also have weird numbers: Brew Recipe Recommendation Dose: 19g Yield: 37.4g Time
  5. So I appreciate that currently my setup sucks BUT... First beans I bought from HB were costa rican SO's and they tasted amazing. Based on reviews on HB's coffee I ordered... Breakfast Bomb, Philter (not opened yet) and 1973 Mk4. And no matter how I brew or espresso these beans they just taste...rancid. Like dishwater. They smell bad too. I'm guessing my equipment is not good enough ( I made a new thread on this but no one answered) so shall I just throw them away and go back to Single Origin?
  6. There is a lot of excess stock which was destined for a cafe , however building work has delayed opening and as such there are bags of rested coffee which need a home ..... All roasted on 16th or 17th Jan (so perfect for espresso and still tasting darn sweet for filter ) 2 x 1Kilo Brazil Cachoeira PN £18 each posted SOLD PENDING PAYMENT 2 x 250g Brazil Cachoeira PN £5 each posted SOLD PENDING PAYMENT 1 x 250g Brazil Cachoeira PN Decaf £5 posted SOLD PENDING PAYMENT 2 x 250g Ethiopia Chelelektu Natural £6 each posted SOLD PENDING PAYMENT 2 x 250g Sulawesi Tana Washe
  7. Just seen it on Has Bean's facebook feed. https://www.hasbean.co.uk/products/rattleware-cupping-brewer What do people think? Probably be too much sediment for my liking.
  8. That's right! For my first coffee in charge of LSOL I've managed to get my hands on a rather special and exclusive coffee from Has Bean! Guest slot sign up is below but there is now a 500g-per-month subscription option available priced at £40 per quarter on top of the original 1kg-per-month now priced at £70 a quarter. Sign up here!!! There is no limit on the number of guest slots yet but one may be imposed depending on how many new subscribers we get. 500g of this exclusive and super exciting coffee is £14.50 delivered! 1. @foundrycoffeeroasters.com 2. 3. 4. 5.
  9. Just broke into a bag of these but decided to make my own mind up on the flavour rather than reading the notes. I'm away at the minute so dont have scales, timers, thermometers and suchlike. In fact I have an aeropress, a hausgrind and a kettle. Pleased to say that despite my variable technique I'm getting a fantastic drink. First mouthful reminded me of peaches .... hang on, it was more apricots with a touch of acidity. Really big mouthfeel. Then had a look at the notes on the bag and yes - tropical fruits, pineapple and apricots. This wont appeal to the darker roas
  10. Hi there, Have been experimenting a bit with my bean choices lately and have just got my hands on some of the Kicker 2014 Mk II from Has bean Now I know it's not going to be to everyone's taste and has a reputation for being 'difficult' but I've found it rather special -I obviously like bright lively espresso. Just thought I'd post my brew parameters in case its of any help to anyone else out there: I'm using Miss Silvia pimped with an Auber PID and an MC2 grinder. Boiler surface temp 105 C Doseage: 18g ground Extraction time 24-25 secs Yield : 37g The o
  11. Over the last few months I have been getting my beans from Rave, Has Bean, Square Mile and a local roaster. I fancy a change but the choice is huge! Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm drinking brewed coffee and prefer light(ish) roasts.
  12. My 4 x 250g bags of Colombia El Meridiano Rioblanco Colombian SC Decaffeinated from Has Bean is nearly rested and I'm looking for something a little darker roasted for a taste comparison so would appreciate any supplier/bean recommendations that anyone can give. Before anyone challenges my question, yes decaffeinated is really what we want!

    Hi guys

    I want to buy an espresso starter pack from Has Bean. It usually takes me 2 months or so to get through the pack. How long would you recommend usage of each pack. Regards
  14. Hello coffee people! Thought it was about time we got an account on here to start interacting with our treasured friends, and, hopefully some new future friends. We wanted to start by giving you the chance to try something delicious, rare and special at a silly silly price. To celebrate the current spotlight on Scotland and the events of next week, we want you to try a super coffee with some real Scottish heritage. Oh and its a 94 point 'cup of excellence' coffee, a Kenyan varietal grown in an unusual part of El Salvador! You can read about it here: http://www.hasbean.co

    HasBean challenge

    Dear HasBean, over the years, I have bought your beans many times, but over the last few years, rarely. Not because there is anything wrong with your product, but because my equipment and taste has changed, and I am now firmly in the dark roasted camp. Can I challenge your roaster, to try and come up with something for us dark boys? Some roasters have had a go and all they have done is take a selected bean a couple of stages further, and ruined it....so, the skill sets you put into your roasting style, expand it and include us dark boys!
  16. Hi guys, A quick question about free on loan coffee equipment here in the UK. I'm Australian and have come from an establishment in Melbourne where we got through 60-70kg+ of coffee a week, and our wholesaler supplied my employers with everything: Barista training, tamp, grinder, cups, custom painted La Marzocca FB/80 (everything!) Now I'm doing my own thing, targeting a small space in Hackney, London and I'm trying to establish which boutique suppliers might offer a free on loan machine/grinder and how many kg's I might need to get through to interest them. If not, whether an

  18. For years I've been happy with ready-ground Illy red in a moka pot. Now I'm exploring other things and have a new Rhino grinder, a Handpresso, some scales and a Has Bean espresso starter pack. Just made a cup of Jailbreak and it is effing revolting, with or without milk. Horrible sour taste and a smell of something like cellulose. I am seriously cheesed off. I bet I will hate all 5 beans in the starter pack. What a waste of time and money. Even McDonalds coffee is far nicer.

    3fe beans

    I was kindly given a bag of 3fe roasted beans for Christmas this year. They are El Salvador finca Argentina Los Mangos washed. Roast wise is say they're similar to what you'd expect from hasbean. I've been brewing these beans in aeropress, v60 and chemex. To me they make an incredibly sweet cup of coffee. The first mouthful out of every brew has been sweet caramel and milk chocolate followed by a fruit flavour with a nice amount of acidity. Not overpowering. They seem to only be selling in shops at present or you can subscribe to a monthly bag for a year of you live in Ireland/Northern Ireland
  20. Has Bean are doing a monthly guest espresso subscription again this year. A bit different to last years (where each month had a unique blend and packaging) but instead are sending out bespoke blends that they produce for coffee shops to cut down on the effort involved, first one is Acidity Squirrel that's in The Shrewsbury Coffeehouse Link here

    Has bean

    I’m a satisfied coffeebeanshop customer but feeling adventurous thought I’d give hasbean a whirl. Along with some jailbreak (which I’ve yet to crack open) I ordered a bag of Guatemala El Bosque Amatitlan washed red boubon (the tasting notes looked like it would be up my street). Using my usual aeropress method I made a cup this morning and it was a bit unsatisfying. It was “nice” with some interesting flavours and fairly well balanced but it didn’t have any real punch, it was almost like I wasn’t drinking coffee if you get what I mean (and I’m not a fan of super strong, dark roasted coffe
  22. http://www.hasbean.co.uk/collections/mugs-and-cups/products/has-bean-red-demitasse-and-saucer I have 3 of these to shift. They would be >£17 delivered from Has Bean. Im looking for 13.50 delivered.... Anyone going to the grind off can have them for 12 quid. cheers!
  23. Pro musician and coffee addict here! I've been a customer of Hasbean since they started but my love of coffee began in 1970, my then girlfriend was from East Africa and her relatives would send beans over to us, yummy. I'm looking to get new machine and am looking for either another Sylvia or something similar....
  24. Just had to write a little note to the forum to praise the excellent customer service at Has Bean and in particular Chris who has been brilliant in sorting my issue. Essentially my IMM La Toma never turned up, which it seems was a Royal Fail issue and has been lost/stolen along the way. I wonder if plain packaging would prevent so many getting lost on route? Anyway, I was going to order some bits from HB so Chris agreed to throw in a replacement bag for free. We got into quite a lengthy email off about brew methods and advising me against buying a certain bit of kit and I ended up orderin
  25. As alluded to in the Wiggo's Giotto thread, Sir Chris Hoy is also a fan of Rocket and a recent tweet of his setup showed a healthy selection of beans from Has Bean
