Can't choose just one? No problem!

Stillwater Coffee Co. in Hiawatha has revealed a new menu item that's going to make coffee-lovers VERY happy! Yesterday, the popular shop announced on social media that they have starting offering miniature versions of their four best-selling coffee flavors in "flight" form. I've heard of beer flights and even margarita flights, but never coffee flights!

Stillwater's coffee flight is called “The Backstage Pass” and features a few beverages with names inspired by music icons:

  • The Van Halen - espresso, milk, vanilla and hazelnut syrup
  • The Dolly - espresso, milk, red raspberry and white Ghirardelli chocolate
  • Purple Haze - espresso, milk, Ghirardelli white chocolate, hazelnut, and haus-made lavender
  • Caramel Macchiato - Haus-made caramel and vanilla with a shot of espresso

I spoke to manager Alisabeth Von Presley yesterday about where the idea for the coffee flights came from, and she told me it all started on Facebook:

"A month ago there was a post on the RALLY CAP Facebook page asking if any coffee shops offered 'coffee flights.' I can't count the amount of times my name was tagged on that post - so when I opened it up, I was instantly inspired to create one here at Stillwater."

"The Backstage Pass" is available to order now at Stillwater, which is located at 1275 North Center Point Road in Hiawatha. Alisabeth says that the business "is female-owned, community-oriented, and mixing the power of rock n roll + espresso under one roof." They are open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday & Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
