Undercurrent Coffee’s Todd Huber Wants to Feed Your Passion

For our Community series, we’re asking our coffee shop partners to answer our Official Odeko Partner Questionnaire, to help everyone get to know these delightful folks and their shops. We heart our partners, and we think you will, too.

Our illustrious profile subject is Todd Huber, co-owner of Undercurrent Coffee. Undercurrent is one of Charlotte’s finest indy coffee shops, but Huber knows brewing up a great cup is the easy part. Becoming a real part of the fabric of the community is the real goal, and Undercurrent does this through its Lab, which offers Specialty Coffee Association Barista and Brewing certifications and classes for the general public.

Why did you open your shop?

We opened Undercurrent because we wanted to interact with and contribute to our community, in addition to being attracted to the challenge of creating something new and sustainable. Also, my wife Erin and I had long wanted a great coffee shop in the neighborhood where we lived, and recognized the opportunity to build something that would be meaningful to our friends and neighbors.

What makes Undercurrent special?

Our shop is special because the people who work there care about it as much as I do. They take pride in our products and space, and they love the guests that come in everyday. We also have a beautiful cafe that matches the quality of our products and services.

What is your staff’s super power?

See above! They make people feel welcome, and they love coffee. They are constantly trying to get it better and better.

What do you love about your customers?

I love our customers because they are an incredibly diverse group of people that represents our community in a variety of ways. They tend to be creative and focused people, and they use Undercurrent’s space and products to help them get ahead with their passions in life.
