Happy Holidays from all of us at Huckleberry! As we get close to the end of 2014, we want to let you know how much we appreciate you supporting Huckleberry and brewing our coffee. It's been a great year for us since moving the roasting operation to Pecos Street. Thank you for the huge part that you've played in our success.
Starting this week, we're also offering coffee cherry tea - cascara. This particular cascara comes from Finca San Luis in Costa Rica. It tastes great and can be a pretty interesting tea offering for customers, or an ingredient in syrups and other, more complicated drinks.
Beyond cascara and our current coffees, we're excited to release several new coffees during the first few weeks of 2015, including a Rwandan coffee from the Coopac Cooperative's Kigeyo washing station, a delicious washed (not wet hulled) coffee from the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia and at long last, a single farmer lot from the El Palto cooperative in Peru.
Both Piña and Sister Winter have been huge hits among our customers and have been quite versatile in our shops. Piña has worked great as both a brewed coffee and espresso option, and we started pulling shots of Sister Winter this weekend. Both are super approachable and the charitable focus of Sister Winter makes it a wonderful gift.
We're working on another approachable Latin American coffee from Peru, but it will probably be a few weeks before we'll be able to roast it. We've had a few shipping delays, but should have the chance to roast and cup single producer samples from the El Palto cooperative soon, with the goal of releasing another great single farmer lot as soon as we can.
More info and coffee to come, but for now, enjoy the holidays with a warming cup of coffee among friends and family!
