Blue Orchid is Huckleberry’s house espresso blend. We serve this coffee every day in our cafes, and it is designed to be approachable, both as espresso and as a brewed coffee, with and without milk. If you’ve ever had a great latte experience at one of Huckleberry’s cafes, Blue Orchid was the base.
While the Blue Orchid blend does change frequently, we try to maintain a sweet, full-bodied, chocolate and caramel flavor profile by using Central and South American coffees specifically chosen for those qualities. This is great tasting comfort coffee, and is a well-rounded crowd pleaser, especially if some of that crowd likes cream in their cup, or is still making the transition from darker roast profiles into specialty coffee. We love intense floral aromatics, but some mornings we just want the chocolate, toffee, and a bit of milk in our mug, and for those days, Blue Orchid is our go-to.
The current version of Blue Orchid is a blend of Brazil Sitio Santo Antonio and Peru Aldea Laurel.

Don't call it a dark roast! Okay, okay...we won't.
How about we call it Civitas and say it's "a slightly darker roast with slightly longer development"? Yea, that sounds cool!
In either case, we're excited about this one! Huck has long believed that we should (or could) be just as proud of our darker & more developed coffees, as we are of our lighter offerings.
It just took us a while to find a roast profile that still checked all the boxes for us!
Our Civitas blend is meant for the fan of a full bodied coffee with notes of dark sugars, chocolate, toffee, and a great nuttiness -- not unlike our Blue Orchid Blend, but a hair darker than that.

El Desarollo is back - one of our favorite coffees for the last 5 years. While we called this coffee Matambo for a few years, it's always come from the El Desarollo Growers Association, and this group of farmers has produced a coffee that's deeply sweet and subtly complex, year-after-year!
The best Colombias - and particularly the best Huilas - pull off a balance between approachability and exciting flavors that few other origins can match. This latest crop is a perfect example of that balance, popping with red berry and plum fruitiness, but rounding out the pop with dark honey and buttery pie crust sweetness.
We had the pleasure of visiting Asociación de Cafeteros el Desarollow in August of 2017 with Caravela, one of our favorite sourcing partners in Latin America. Read more about that visit here to see why we're stoked for yet another great year with the El Desarollo Growers Association and the long game with these growers and Caravela in Colombia.
We think El Desarollo has something for everyone. Plenty of traditional coffee flavors and sweetness for those who prefer a more approachable or milk-friendly mug, but also packing juicy, fruity flavors and high-end brightness to please folks who prefer more adventurous coffees. Year 5 of this gem from Gigante, and we’re looking forward to brewing it for the next few months!

Bosque de Marfil is back for its third year in the Huck lineup, and we’re excited to brew this one up over the next few months. Black cherry, nougat, macadamia nut and fudge flavors dominate a complex, but sweet and comforting cup.
Bosque de Marfil is the name of a forest in the center of Ecuador’s southernmost Loja province, and the 44 farmers who produce this coffee call this forest home. Sitting high in the Limo mountain range, the bosque provides great shade for coffee production, and abundant natural resources that help these farmers earn secondary income in the months between one coffee harvest and the next.
As is the case with many of our Latin American coffees, we’re excited to source Bosque de Marfil through Caravela Coffee. Caravela helps ensure us dependably great coffees, and provides farmers with access to on-farm assistance plus fair, transparent pricing structures. It’s a win-win, and it makes them one of our favorite partners in Latin America.
As far as the cup goes, it’s a sweet, delicious ride. Cherry cola sweetness, chocolate-molasses sweet-spice, creamy nut notes, and a touch of green apple brightness, with a syrupy body. It’ll hold up to milk just great, and we’ll be brewing it plenty as a single origin espresso, but we’re also more than glad to drink this black - it’s a lively and juicy everyday drinker.
