Summary: Hair Bender coffee from Stumptown is delicious!  It is not the usual dark roast that I usually enjoy most, but this coffee is so flavorful it definitely scored a top "10" with me!  It is complex and long on the palate with a citrus lemony end.  I would not add cream or sugar to this coffee as it is best that it stands on its own and shines.  It is to be enjoyed slowly over good conversation or a good book....not that cup of java that you pour into your "to go" cup and race out the door!  Take some time and dust off your old french press and relish the goodness of Hair Bender.

I bought these Hair Bender whole coffee beans at Fred Meyer in Tualatin, Oregon.  It was a surprise to see them on the shelf!!!  They had a roasting date of January 12, 2015 and I bought them on January 14, 2014!!!  Getting fresh Stumptown Coffee so close to home is a plus and a bonus.
