We love a steamy hot Cup O’ Joe here at Old Town Spice Shop which is why we’ve created our very own line of specialty coffees called Hopped Up Coffee. You see, we’re more than just a Fort Collins Spice Shop, we’re also coffee connoisseurs. But our coffee isn’t just your run-of-the-mill java. Hopped Up Coffee is a single-origin coffee, blended with various hops and malted barley to add the texture and sweetness of various beer styles.
Intrigued yet? We thought so.
We work with a number of awesome local breweries including New Belgium, Odell, Horse & Dragon, Purpose Brewing, DC Oakes, Intersect, Maxline, Zwei and others to help create our line of mouthwatering flavors. For all of our Hopped Up Coffees, we suggest brewing 2 Tbsp of coffee per 8 oz cup of water in a french press. For drip coffee, brew half a pot. Also, we thought we should mention that Hopped Up Coffee does not come in a whole bean due to the fact that there are a number of ingredients in it that cannot be ground at home without specialized equipment; it’s ground to best suit a french press
We’ve got a number of hop-tastic flavors to choose from so you can be sure to find the perfect blend for you or the beer lover in your life. Here’s quick rundown of our Hopped Up Flavors:
Black IPA – This coffee blend brings flavors of fresh roasted coffee, floral, and citrus hops paired with various varieties of roasted barley to create the perfect combination of sweetness and body synonymous with a black IPA.
Chocolate Peppermint Porter – This seasonal coffee available November and December offers flavors of fresh roasted coffee, chocolate, and a hint of hops naturally sweetened with candy cane. Paired with a variety of roasted barley that adds a hint of sweetness with the body of a porter, this blend will get you in the holiday spirit.
Chocolate Stout – Our chocolate stout coffee is a mouthwatering combination of fresh roasted coffee with hints of hops, paired with roasted barley and cocoa nibs that create a wonderful chocolate aroma and flavor.
Pumpkin Ale – Another seasonal selection only available throughout the month of October, our pumpkin ale coffee is made of freshly roasted coffee, malted barley, hops and a hint of pumpkin spice. It’s autumn in a cup and you’re going to love it.
Scottish Ale – One of our favorites, hands down, our Scottish Ale blend offers a fusion of fresh roasted coffee, buscuitty, and honey malts with a hint of Cascade hops. This one will be sure to get you going in the morning.
Winter Warmer – And last but not least is our Winter Warmer, available only during the winter months. This blend consists of fresh roasted coffee and a hint of hops paired with a variety of roasted barley to add a bit of sweetness and body. Then we added a splash of cocoa and orange to bring the flavor of winter to your coffee cup every morning.
