Blueberry Coffee Cake

This coffee cake is even better the next day. Even though its pretty moist after baking, it gets even more moist the next day! I has a crunchy, cinnamony, buttery topping, that is delicious paired with the moist blueberry coffee cake interior. Make sure to use the smaller Maine wild blueberries; the larger blueberries would be too mushy.
