Hammerhead Coffee

Mary Burwell and Scott Hartwich have been drinking, preparing, roasting, and selling coffee since 1989. They fell in love while working for the same large company (think mermaid), and moved on to open one of the first espresso carts in Portland, Oregon, as well as a successful coffee house. Hammerhead is the Bellingham-based culmination of this shared passion.

Mary and Scott run the company as a true, Mom and Pop business, and enjoy working with retail and wholesale customers who value substance over style, a down-to-earth and personal approach to customer service, and a commitment to sustainability and a healthy local community. Plus they design really wacky coffee labels.

Blends

Breakfast Blend

Snappy blend of coffee from the Americas, featuring a medium to full body, a hint of smoky spice, and an annoying pep and verve. Breakfast Blend is a morning person; feel free to slap it. Full City Roast.

Size

Cal's Blend

One of our regulars came up with this half-calf blend, mixing decaf Italian roast with our old standard Velvet Elvis. More intense than Soccer Mom Blend. Cal-tested and approved. 1/2 Italian, 1/2 Vienna Roast.

Size

Chuckanut Gold

What do you get when you cross an under-utilized Central American bean with a reliable South American? Well duh, you get Chuckanut Gold, of course. Brighter than House Blend, smoother than Breakfast Blend. Medium Body, Medium Acidity, plenty of chocolate. Don't try to smoke it! Full City Roast.

Size

Our signature espresso, Hammerhead Stout blends coffees from four countries to create a complex brew that perfectly balances sweetness, body, and tang. Not too smooth, not too sharp. Just right! Full City Roast.

Size

House Blend

I can't tell you what's in this or I'd have to silence you permanently. What I can say is that our house blend is smooth and well-balanced, with a mild acidity and a very clean flavor. Certified In-Law and Grandparent safe. Full City Roast.

Size

Mocha Jabba

Modeled after the world's oldest blend, MJ combines an earthy, heavy-bodied Indonesian with a sweet and unpredictable Ethiopian. Big flavor, with a great interplay between body and acidity. Full City Roast.
