Phantom Limb Blend

Huckleberry Roasters

Phantom Limb is the wilder of Huckleberry’s two blends.  We designed the Phantom Limb to focus on fruit-forward flavors that one might not expect from a traditional espresso or drip blend.  When we have a coffee or two that work great as a fruity, bright, but still full-bodied espresso, we create a new version of Phantom Limb, and pull it in our cafes for straight shots and smaller milk beverages.

Unlike Blue Orchid, which sticks to a consistent flavor profile, Phantom Limb changes more drastically from one version to the next.  This current version showcases two coffees from Sidama, Ethiopia, one washed, one natural-processed. Each version of Phantom Limb will taste great as espresso and drip, but is intended to showcase the unexpected, unique flavors of its components, rather than adhere to anyone’s idea of a “traditional” espresso.

Even though we tend to use Phantom Limb as espresso in the two Huckleberry cafes, it’ll still taste great as a brewed coffee at home.  Expect jammy, fruity sweetness, tangy brightness, and a syrupy body.

Current Blend:  All from the Guji area of Sidama, Ethiopia: Sidama Hantate Natural and Sidama Guji Gr 1 Washed.

Current Tasting Notes: raspberry and blackberry, lemon brightness, floral aromatics, subtle cocoa.

Many people suffer from phantom pain, limb loss or limb difference (including customers of ours) and therefore with every purchase of this blend we try to raise awareness and money by donating a portion of proceeds to local amputee support organizations. Our very next set of stickers will include a short line explaining just that so stay tuned. All of our coffee blends are named after songs that have significance for our company's history. Phantom Limb is a song by The Shins that was one of the first conversations that Koan and Mark ever had.

Here's a link to one of the three organizations that this blend supports.
