Hair Bender Coffee? Say Hello To Stumptown Coffee

As you know my blog name is Living Off Love and Coffee. Today I bring to you the first coffee review of 2012 and I am speaking about Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Stumptown Coffee Roasters receives different coffees from around the world and with each one they roast them, sample them and make an art out of roasting coffee. If you want to taste truly delicious and hand picked coffee that is delicately taken care of, you need to find your first flavor of Stumptown Coffee.

 For this review I was lucky enough to be able to try their unique Hair Bender blend. Complex doesn't even begin to describe the blend and flavor of this coffee. With coffee from three different regions, Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia combined, you know that this is one of a kind. This coffee is fantastic as an alone espresso, at any time you could taste up to 8 different flavors of coffee! Flavors ranging from milk chocolate, caramel, jasmine, meyer lemon, apricot and pineapple.

I love the look the bag and the card that came with it. I even got my own little greeting card, everything seems to be made of recycled cardboard, tell me that's not a company that cares about the environment! I really wish you could have smelled the bag when I opened it. If smell-a-vision comes along while this coffee is still around you bet I will be making a video of it! 

Here is a closer look of the card. It gives you amazing information on what is in this coffee and what you can come to expect when you taste it. Back to the smell, you could tell there was a mixture of the coffee beans, very strong aroma with hints of caramel and milk chocolate right away. Once you grind this coffee I did notice that it is rather heavy. If you have a Keurig like me, you will not want to fill the K-cup to your normal level. Go a little bit lower so the water is able to flow through better. The coffee is a much richer and higher quality coffee that I have ever had in a long time! 

Since having this bag of coffee we have not drank any other coffee. My boyfriend and I have drank at least 2 cups of Hair Bender a day, let me tell you it's an amazing kick start to the morning. If you remember in my previous coffee posts, I have acid reflux so there are plenty of coffees that I cannot have because they are to high in acid and most of those are the really strong coffees that I use to love! Thanks to Stumptown Coffee Roasters I am able to enjoy the bold taste of Hair Bender and have NO pains afterwords. 

In overall care for their coffee and customers, you will be hard pressed to find another company who puts as much passion as Stumptown Coffee Roasters puts into their products. 

You can find more information about Stumptown Coffee Roasters at their website and also follow them on Twitter!
