HNTRISM loves to hear about companies with fun, humble beginnings. And Blue Bottle Coffee is no exception. Blue Bottle Coffee was founded in the early 2000s by a “freelance musician and coffee lunatic.” With cafes around the globe, Blue Bottle Coffee has stuck to its roots and only sells fresh coffee within 48 hours of roasting. Why? As the Oakland, California founder stated, “I will only sell coffee less than 48 hours out of the roaster to my guests so that they may enjoy fresh coffee at peak flavor. I will only use the finest, most delicious, and responsibly sourced beans.” Pretty cool, huh?
HNTRISM applauds Blue Bottle Coffee not only for their sustainability efforts and the hospitality they bring to the locals of the neighborhoods they serve but also for their commitment to quality and providing a premium product to their customers. Did you know that they set up blind taste tests and every batch is taste tasted? Check out how they “evaluate deliciousness.” Presently, they have free brewing classes at many of their locations. Also, they even have a “Whole Bean Coffee Peak Flavor and Freshness Guide” Chart. How cool is that?
HNTRISM encourages fresh coffee lovers, or even if you’re not, to check out more about the story of Blue Bottle Coffee and how the founder came up with the name.
Here are some of our favorite Blue Bottle fresh coffee products:
Named after John Coltrane's Giant Steps, this thick coffee is not unlike the jazz visionary's trademark layers of sound. Simply like Coltrane's ability to waterfall right into high pitched octaves with optimum control, this coffee's inflections of stone fruit lighten without shedding emphasis.
$17.50 / lb.
Bella Donovan is the flannel sweatshirt of Blue Bottle's blends, reassuring, relaxing and also enveloping. Bella is a variant of the stereotypical Moka Java pairing in which a jammy and wild natural from Ethiopia pairs beautifully with even more substantive coffees from Sumatra as well as Peru. It's a darker blend, endures the automatic drip process and blends well with milk or cream. It is just as enjoyable served straight.
$17.00 / lb.
Well, we have actually constantly been followers of the opascope, a gorgeous device for projecting handwriting as well as carefully made artwork into a larger surface area. The opascope is a device for taking mindful workmanship and also opening it up for every person to gain access to and also take pleasure in. Opascope Coffee is a refreshing alternative to the typical blends with thick chocolatey notes.
$17.75 / lb.
Blue Bottle Coffee created this dark coffee for the launch of their very first coffee shop in their buddy Loring's garage in Hayes Valley. Years later on it continues to be the standard coffee served in all of Blue Bottle Coffee shops.
