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 Fazenda Santa Ines and a washed coffee grown from Guatemala called Atitlan El Grano.

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.

We’re excited to relaunch our coffee club with a fancy new jar and this time, we collaborated with The Moore Collection - they designed 4 custom panels representing our 4301 Pecos flagship cafe.
We hope the coffee jar refill program encourages more home coffee brewing and also gives you a break in the price of our whole bean coffee, while also being earth conscious! On top of saving a bag every time you buy retail, you’ll also have the opportunity to taste our seasonal coffees, and share the experience with your friends and family at home. Please take note that the jar plus refills are for local Colorado-area residents who can PICK UP IN STORE (NO SHIPPING). If you're interested in purchasing just the jar, select the jar only variant for $15. Thanks!

*DISCLAIMER: We do not offer a fill for whatever coffee you want. We've tried to be as fair about this as possible by offering different coffees each week so there's some variety and have tried to make this abundantly clear here on our website and with the insert that came with your jar. If you have any additional questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!View full product details
