Hellbender Blend

Hellbender Blend is a blend of coffees from Brazil, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Colombia and Honduras. It is light-medium roasted and produces a light bodied cup with sweet, fruit-like notes and a mild finish. 

CBRC Hellbender Blend was named for the Hellbender salamander. Growing up to over two feet in length, Hellbenders are North America’s largest salamander. They also "breathe" by absorbing oxygen from the water through their skin. Because of this, they survive where there is cold, clear, swift-running water. Polluted runoff, silt build up and other human impacts have dimished the types of waterways in which the Hellbender thrives. As a result, hellbender numbers have been decimated in western Maryland and Pennsylvania streams where they were plentiful as recently as 1990.
