Flying High Coffee to fuel SUN ’n FUN The folks at Flying High Coffee have prepared 500 pounds of top-grade coffee beans for this week’s airshow. The company, founded by a pilot, is the new official coffee of the airshow. “We’ve carefully combined a very special blend of top-grade coffee beans to bring to Lakeland,” notes Rob Riggen, the founder and president of Flying High Coffee, which donates a portion of its profits to non-profit aviation education efforts. “We chose three Arabica varieties from Central and South America to create a full-bodied and complex, yet accessible, cup of coffee for people to enjoy during the week.” The company is serving brewed hot and iced coffee from three locations: Near the Main Gate, just east of the FAA building towards the flightline, and in Hangar E, where the location includes a sit-down WiFi cafe. Riggen expects to serve between 8,000 and 12,000 cups of coffee during the week. Riggen, who is a CFII and lover of fine coffee, has a personal goal of doubling the donation his company gave to the Able Flight and Girls With Wings programs in 2011. He also hopes to add another aviation not-for-profit benefactor to his program of funding aviation charities via coffee sales. “The intention all along of Flying High Coffee is to provide stable and dependable streams of funding to our not-for-

profit programs,” Riggen says. He estimates that millions of dollars of profit are “pumped out” of the aviation industry each year through aviation’s voracious appetite for caffeine. “If we can brew and sell all 500 pounds of our ‘#SnF12 Blend’ we will be in good shape for advancing our program.” Besides selling coffee by the cup, Flying High Coffee also will be selling coffee for pilots to take home. You can buy the whole beans or have the folks at Flying High Coffee ground the beans for you. FlyingHighCoffee.com

The company combined three varieties of Arabica coffee beans to bring to the show, as well as designed a special label.
