Hammerhead Coffee
Closing Date: 
Saturday, December 31, 2016 - 8:30am

Hammerhead Coffee, an independently owned coffee shop in C-U, is on the hunt for local artists to display original artwork on our large gallery wall. From our industrial furniture to our coffee tables made from refurbished amps, our aesthetic can probably best be described as 90s rock meets industrial.

Let us tell you a bit more about the story behind our coffee shop...

Hammerhead Coffee derives its name from a record label that the owner, Todd Thorstenson, founded in Champaign 20 years ago called Hammerhead Records. Between 1993 and 2000, the label promoted and funded recordings for musical artists in and around the Midwest. Hammerhead Coffee carries on the tradition by featuring local artists’ music and artwork in a continuation of the label’s support of the local arts and, of course, have great coffee, great service, and a great welcoming space. Hammerhead Coffee sets itself apart to be the true coffee cultural experience for our customers. ​​​
