Things are shaking up this summer at Huckleberry: we're prepping for our roasting production to move to a new facility. With a larger space dedicated solely to the roasting and production aspect of Huckleberry, our cafe team looks forward to devoting the old roasting room to education. Stay tuned for more on our coffee education lab!
This summer our Latin American coffees are all tasting pretty delicious lately, and Las Brisas and Atitlán El Grano have been two favorites for home coffee brewers over the past few weeks. Beriti remains a crowd pleaser in our current coffee lineup, but the Guat and two Colombians have been pleasant, sweet, and gentle brews for easing into busy mornings. Resguardo is also in its last month or so, and some of our team argue that it's the most well-rounded single origin spro in our lineup right now.
Single origins aside, we've recently refreshed our classic Phantom Limb blend. We want to make your americanos and your iced coffee greater than ever, so we've made the switch to a new, fresh crop natural from the Guji region of Sidama in this blend. The Hantate natural we used before was also a delicious coffee, but the new Sidama Guji natural brings out even juicier blackberry and dark grape flavors to the blend. That, combined with a very subtle roast profile change to the washed Sidama Guji, is making this Sidama Guji squared version of Phantom Limb pop extra hard and finish incredibly clean as both espresso and brewed coffee.
We're excited about three upcoming coffees for late summer and we just tasted mid-harvest samples from Long Miles in Burundi. Roasted Burundi is a ways off - winter arrival - but we were floored by the quality in yesterday's cupping. Plenty of good things to come!
