An espresso blend from Indonesia, Latin America and Africa with notes of citrus and dark chocolate, Hair Bender is rich, deep, savory, and complex. And because it's from Stumptown, you know it's fresh.

Stumptown Hair Bender Overview

Hair Bender repeatedly appears on lists and forum threads of the best espresso roasts, and I completely agree.

With a strong toffee and fudge profile and hints of dark fruit, it’s a deliciously complex roast that works for both a bright morning espresso or an after-dinner dessert.

This dark roast isn’t especially oily, which makes it ideal for super-automatic espresso machines.

And the Stumptown packaging, while odd-looking, is among the best at locking in the freshness.

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
