COVID-19 has our cafes closed for a week or two or something -- who knows. While HUCK is paying our salaried and hourly staff for the hours they are missing, their daily tips will not be part of that -- and, frankly, that hurts.
If you are missing your favorite barista, and would like to show some extra love to the HUCK barista crew, please leave them a digital tip.
Every single penny earned here will go to a shared barista tip pool, and allotted proportionally (by hour) to our staff!
If you would like to tip your barista a custom amount, please use our PAYPAL link HERE.

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 Sao Benedito Natural and a washed coffee from smallholder farmers in the La Coipa area of Peru's San Ignacio province.

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.

While Huck loves to work with the same producers year after year, it’s always fun to bring in new coffees that have found their way into our hearts. Enter Hacienda Casablanca, nestled in the Santander region of Colombia. When our head roaster, Shelby, won the 2019 US Coffee Roasters Championship, part of the prize was a trip to Colombia with Ally Coffee. Casablanca was one of the many impressive farms from that trip.
Casablanca is aptly named for the lavish, white Spanish villa built on the farm during colonial times. Liliana Caballero grew up in the area, and always had an affinity for the old white house and the land it sat on, so when she purchased the villa and a portion of the old hacienda in the early 2000s, she kept named her land after the beautiful white house..
When Liliana first purchased the 20 hectare farm, it was mostly planted with the rust-resistant Tabi variety. This failed to live up to Liliana’s high quality standards, and with the aim of improving the coffee’s cup quality, Liliana has consistently worked to renovate the farm, replacing Tabi with Colombia, Castillo, Bourbon and Gesha trees--not a cheap investment.
More than 10 years have passed since Liliana purchased Hacienda Casablanca, and her efforts have not gone unnoticed. Beyond the farm’s well-known beauty, Casablanca earned some well-deserved fame by competing in the 2016 National Yara Championship (a coffee quality competition) and taking first place!
During the Champs Trip, Shelby tasted coffees from several farms, but kept comparing the others to the sweet and fruity coffees from Casablanca. This particular coffee is a blend of Castillo and Gesha varieties, and with notes of brown sugar, raspberry, lime, and macadamia nut, it doesn’t disappoint.
