Oskar Blues Brewery and Hotbox Roasters have collaborated to introduce a national, limited release brew that packs a roasted coffee punch — Hotbox Coffee Porter, which sports a malted base extracted from English and German roasted and caramel malts and is comprised of flavors like roasted nuts, crème brûlée, cocoa and caramel. Hotbox Roasters then crashes the party and infuses potent, cold-extracted coffee from Burundian and Ethiopian beans and deals old flavors and aromas of dark plums, chocolate and hints of blueberry. Hotbox Roasters is a spin off of Oskar Blues’ coffee addiction that took off earlier this year.
Hotbox Roasters is a craft coffee roaster specializing in the highest quality, fair-trade coffee beans available to coffee fiends in Colorado as well as nationwide via a tiered subscription service. The company currently produces three different roasts from Kenya, Bolivia and Indonesia and will be adding premium beans from other regions over time. Hotbox Roasters cans its freshly roasted beans using the Oskar Blues and Ball Corp. Crowler, a one-use, recyclable can that is filled and seamed right on location at the Hotbox Roasters Dock in Longmont, Colo.
