The Black Bear Coffee Company was first opened by M. Scott Field in 1997 as a small downtown Café in Hendersonville, NC. The business was purchased by Donald Buscher in 2001, and enjoyed growth with an expansion of menu offerings. The business was bought by Bo and Stephanie Rodriguez in 2003. They enjoyed success and growth in the past decade, including increasing the square footage by 30% for evening entertainment. New owners John and Cathy Ogden are excited for the Black Bear future. We have secured our full ABC permit and will be serving specialty espresso drinks as well as craft brew taps and fine wine.

Here at Black Bear, we offer a wide range of beverages including coffees, teas, and sodas. Our daily coffee selection includes a light roast and a dark roast as well as decaffeinated and flavored options.
