Tweakin' things a bit.

Quick update on the haps at The Hub!

So, I just got back from a wonderful little trip to Portland, Oregon... in my opinion, tasty coffee mecca. Anyhow, all bias aside, The Hub rocks! We can pull some espresso shots with the best of 'em.

With that said, I just wanted to make our loyal espresso drinkers aware of the recent tweak to each of our featured espresso at The Hub, The Boss, from Barefoot Coffee Roasters, and Black Cat, from Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters. The Boss blend has been simplified a bit: it is now a delectable mix of the Brazilian Daterra Redcab and the Sulawesi Sapan Minanga. Tastes like chocolate, tropical citrus, little earthen dusty hints... tastes AMAZING!

Intelligentsia's Black Cat is now a blend of a Bolivian and a Brazilian coffee... tastes a little less fruity as far as the sweetness, a little more as far as darker carmelized sugar flavors go, layer of chocolate and some herb to round it out. Tastes AMAZING!

Come in and try them both! They pair nicely with our fancy new pastries!!! Wonderful local social butterfly Hannah Candelario is baking us some goodies... little french cakes called g√Ęteau, made with tasty cocoa and our very own espresso beans! Not to mention little almond cakes as well. And little filled crescent, of Jewish origin, called rugelach! We had some savory little guys with arugula, onion, and ham the other day... off the chain!

Stay tuned for more!
