Blueberry, Floral, Milk Chocolate
Ethiopia had a head-start on the rest of the world's coffee plantations by a few thousand years, which may suggest why its complexity is so coveted by coffee obsessives. This Guji lot is a hallmark example with confident notes of blueberries and pressed florals, supported by a velvety milk chocolate body. Airship recommend this one best as espresso, but they roast it to perform under all brewing methods.
“Sweet, fruity, and complex. A staff favorite and an incredible espresso. This coffee has all the characteristics we look for in a good natural-processed Ethiopian: Blueberries, florals and milk chocolate. We've roasted it to suit all brewing methods, so you can mix it up and try it a few different ways if you like!”
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.
