Black Cherry, Dark Chocolate, Juicy Orange
Airship's flagship espresso blend certainly isn't afraid to get a little wild and fruity. Juicy black cherries and oranges spring to mind when tasting this one straight-up, but there's also a steady anchor of dark chocolate that softens the acidity and offers a bigger body than you'd expect. For that reason, you can feel comfortable partnering Black Apple with a little milk, cream, sugar, or whatever you usually like to do!
“Named after Arkansas' award-winning native apple trees, this three-part blend is comprised of a semi-washed coffee from El Salvador, a honey-processed coffee from Sumatra, and a sun-dried natural from Ethiopia. Together, they create a seriously juicy, sweet and complex espresso that make for a delicious drip coffee, too.”
Airship coffee roasters' story started in 2008 through agricultural work in Central America, which led to importing green coffee from farmers and connecting with roasters nationwide. Curiosity got the best of them, and from there the team fell in love with roasting. Thanks to their experience in sourcing, Airship has been able to build long-standing relationships with folks growing some of the best coffee in the world. Airship currently operate two bustling cafes in Bentonville, Arkansas. There's a neighborhood hangout at the 5th Street coffee bar and a one-of-a-kind, open-air cafe in the woods at their Coler Preserve location. Their ultimate goal is to shift more perspectives around what a coffee experience can be, putting more emphasis on people than product, finding purpose in community building, and making a place where authentic community thrives.
