The sweet and balanced coffee that started it all. Hair Bender is our most celebrated blend with a flavor profile that shines no matter how you brew it.
The Flavor Profile
Hair Bender relies on coffees from Latin America, Indonesia, and Africa to achieve a complex flavor profile with notes of sweet citrus, dark chocolate, and raisin.
Hair Bender takes its name from a long-shuttered beauty parlor that was home to the first Stumptown cafe. It was the initial blend founder Duane Sorenson introduced and the recipe hasn’t changed. To this day, we have the original Hair Bender sign hanging in our headquarters, watching over as we roast.
The clarity and complexity in Hair Bender comes from Indonesia’s rich textures, balanced by the classic flavors of Latin America and Africa. It’s the go-to espresso in all of our cafes and an all-around great cup of coffee.
