🌞🌞🌞Introducing the Mango Con Panna with a side of patio sun 🥭🥭🥭 Treat yourself to Gloria’s latest creation.
✨TWO YEARS Y’ALL ✨ Two years ago we were spinning in circles, washing windows and re-dialing in brews for our first day @camberholly. It humbles us to no end to reflect on all of the warm, talented folks who have poured their hearts into making our flagship cafe what it is today. Thank you to our creative, committed, fun-loving team. And we could pave a highway to the moon and back with the appreciation we have for our regulars. Thank you for choosing us as your home away from home. We wouldn’t be here, if not for you. ➡️Head over to @camberholly to see all the ways we’re going to celebrate over the next week. Our kitchen team has been working on some seriously special dishes, including a Pork Belly Dutch Baby featuring local Alluvial Farms.🤤 There’s so much to come...🌞
☔️🍸🌞 Shall we toast to sunnier skies ahead? How about we toast to the creative minds behind our new summer drink menu while we’re at it? Christian has been working on some crisp & playful session cocktails and spritzers for y’all to enjoy on the patio. Bring down a friend and enjoy something new. #dtbham
🌻 This town has so many creative powerhouses — we’re lucky to feature these two in our space every day... Oil paintings by @sharon.kingston.studio The world’s prettiest flowers by Miranda of @wildryefarm Bham, come enjoy local coffee, art and flowers on this tremendously blustery summer day. #dtbham
🥐☕️⚡️ “Technically precise cooking, made to look easy, is a hallmark of Konbi, a sleek 10-seat café” – Los Angeles Times We cupped a table of spectacular coffees with our friends at Konbi before we landed on their inaugural blend — comprised of Burundi Gahahe and Colombia Los Nogales. We taste notes of raspberry, apricot and molasses in this syrupy blend. Now available on our site — link in profile.
🍋 A few weeks back we hosted a summer drink roundtable where everyone on our team was encouraged to share a recipe they’d been working on. We had high hopes, but we had no idea that our team would bring the full-bicycle-kick-into-alley-oop-from-the-half-zone-line. It was a delightfully delicious day. We’ll be sharing some of these drinks in the coming weeks. To start, here’s Andy and his drink, the Shakerato Al Limon. This classic recipe has only three ingredients: lemon, raw sugar and espresso (plus ice). The shake is what really makes it. It’s so fluffy and balanced and refreshing. Tap your hat to Andy next time you see him, and enjoy a round of Shakeratos with friends.
🌞 There’s a saying that summer doesn’t officially start in the PNW until the 4th. 🍄 Come celebrate summer and brunch with us from 8am-1pm tomorrow (7/4). 🌻 And make sure to check out the new @camberholly summer drink menu. You really don’t want to miss the Doe Paw, created by Christian, our resident Swiss Army Knife. 🌱 The Doe Paw showcases locally-grown anise hyssop from Blanchard Mountain Farm, as well as Cocchi Americano (a quinine-forward apertif) and a refreshing Oregon Riesling.
⚡️⚡️ It’s doubly-delicious Colo giveaway time ⚡️⚡️ This weekend only, when you order either Colombia offering on our site, we’ll automatically include a complimentary // complementary 150 gram bag of our other Colombia offering to your shipment. No promo code required. Link in profile. ⚡️⚡️ COLOMBIA MARIA ROSA OIDOR | black cherry, watermelon, sugarcane | Maria Rosa Oidor runs her farm, Los Nogales, with her husband Antonio Pillimué and their four children. The farm is situated a thirty minute walk from the small town of San Antonio, where the couple also have a small shop. Maria Rosa and Antonio saved the money to buy their three hectare farm from the savings they made from their shop some fifteen years ago. Today, Maria Rosa´s family is dedicated entirely to coffee. Doña Maria hikes up the mountain every day to organize the work for the day. Her coffee is full of juicy fruit notes and refined sugar sweetness. ⚡️⚡️ COLOMBIA BUESACO | plum, raw sugar, apple | This lot was purchased through an association in Buesaco town, that currently serves about 500 producers. Like most of the area, these producers are growing a mix of Caturra and Colombia. The majority of coffee production is performed using hand-crank depulpers, is generally fermented overnight, and finally dried on raised, covered beds. The latter helps protect unstable, wet parchment from the elements, and ventilation facilitates good airflow. The flavor profile here is heavily fruited, probably due to longer fermentation times, and is loaded with flavors of plum, raw sugar, pear, and apple blossom.
We are excited to announce the search to find a magical individual to manage our social media and more! We are looking forward to growing our team with a creative who has an eye for detail and of course, the aesthetic touch that seals the deal. ✨ If you (or someone you know) like what we do, like to learn, like treating people well, have an affinity for beautiful things (as well as serious digital marketing chops), then please visit the link in our profile to learn more about our Director of Marketing opening. ✨
🌜🌞🌛Join us tomorrow (Fri) for our Solstice Celebration at @camberholly. 🤝We’re teaming up with @oatly to serve 8oz oatmilk iced lattes for only $1 ALL DAY. Swipe for all the details & tag a friend to make it the perfect Camber & Oatly date. We’ll be using our Big Joy Espresso in the iced lattes — when combined with Oatly, it tastes just like a chocolate (oat)milkshake. . If you haven’t tried Oatly before, not only is it delicious and creamy, but it’s also GF, nut free, vegan, and non-GMO. If that’s not enough to convince you, get a load of this staggering figure: growing oats requires 1/6 the amount of water required to grow almonds! 💧❤️☕️
It’s officially our favorite time of year 🥭FRESH 🍊CROP 🍍ETHIOPIA 🍋 SEASON 🥰 . While selecting our Ethiopia offerings this season, this lot leapt off the table with floral aromatics and juicy notes of mango, pineapple and peach. It comes from Danse Mormora, a 200 hectare farm in the Guji zone, that sits at an impressive altitude of 2250 meters. At Danse Mormora, coffee is grown in wild forest conditions and the trees benefit from a mixture of natural shade plants. . Link in profile.
🎼🎷🎸Good golly, we wish this post was announcing an upcoming SV collaboration (who says we can’t dream?) ... in truth, this post is announcing the next best thing. We’re honored to be featured on Unpacking Coffee 69th episode. Kandace and Ray are consummate professionals — and charming as all get out. Follow the link in our profile to watch the full segment. 📸@unpackingcoffee
❤️ It’s with misty (valley) eyes that we bid farewell to Mitchell and Nate — two of our original hires. To say we’ve been lucky to have these two on bar would be like saying you’re lucky to have Andre the Giant on your high school wrestling squad. Happy trails you two — we know you’re destined for greatness — be it on the high seas (@mitchellthomassteed) or with your photography business (@nateroberson). You’ll be missed ❤️
🌅Milstead & Co aren’t on Instagram. Somehow, this doesn’t stop them from delivering top-notch service and espresso day after day. They were one of our original wholesale partners, and they are still one of our favorite places to get coffee and watch the world pass by. Beautiful capture by @abandoncoffee 🙏
🦀🌛🌺 Our talented cafe team has new dishes & drinks to share with you, so we decided it’s time for a little giveaway— head over to @camberholly to enter 🌺🌛🦀
This photo of our new cupping spoon was snapped on a gloriously sunny day. Unlike the glorious grey we’re experiencing today. We only have a handful of these puppies available on our website — link in profile. They were custom engraved by W. Wright company in Sheffield, England — which, get this, happens to be the birthplace of silver plating — invented by Thomas Boulsover in 1742! Wow, that was a mouthful. Bottom line: they’ll make your slurp extra sleek.
A few weeks back, we had the pleasure of spending some time with our friends at The Maker Hotel in Hudson, NY. Autum, their Coffee Program Manager, brings such focus, warmth and professionalism to her work. These ethos are echoed throughout Maker’s operation. If you’re ever in upstate NY, pay them a visit. It’ll likely be unlike anything you’ve experienced. 📸 @themakerhotel
🦀 We’re always appreciative to work/live where we do. But let me tell you, this warm, breezy week has us feeling extra grateful to call this corner of the country home. Allow us to ship you a little piece of the PNW. . . Use the code HEYMAY for free shipping — this weekend only. Applies to everything on our website, except our custom cupping spoons.
