The backbone of what makes thump, thump, is Stumptown’s Hair Bender espresso blend. Ever changing so slightly to incorporate new crop beans, this dynamic and delicious elixir is what keeps us excited about the art and science of coffee! If your regular habit is to mix espresso with milk and flavor, consider getting closer to Hair Bender by joining us each Friday from 2:30-5:30pm for 50% off on all doppios, macchiatos and cappuccinos. This is our weekly celebration of Hair Bender prepared as espresso and the art of coffee making.
Stumptown writes: HAIR BENDER is a complex blend featuring coffee from all three of the major growing regions; Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia. We devote constant attention to Hair Bender and are proud of its status as our most popular coffee. We often say our dedication to coffee at the farm level, including how the coffee is grown, picked, separated and processed is what sets Stumptown apart. The Hair Bender is no exception to this rule.
Unlike many other espressos of the world, Hair Bender features fully washed coffee as its backbone, and can have five to eight different coffees at any given time. We hand select these coffees to provide clarity along with the sweetness and complexity we are seeking. We continually taste this blend and each of its components (on the cupping table as well as espresso) to maintain the balance of flavors.”
FLAVORS: Coffees from every major producing region provide the individual components of this complex sweet and savory blend which yields flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, jasmine, meyer lemon, apricot and pineapple.
