Airship Coffee is a locally owned coffee company that was grown out of relationships with coffee farms in Central America. 

  • Place: Initially a roastery, Airship became a customer-facing cafe in 2018 as a response to the "third-wave" of the coffee scene. There are two locations currently, both with their own story and unique atmosphere.
  • Purpose: Airship at 5th St. is where the coffee is roasted and the cafe has a simplistic environment. Airship at Coler is a gem in the middle of the woods in Bentonville, accessible only by trail.
