Portland-based Stumptown Coffee Roasters has developed a coffee blend that's made to be served at 30,000 feet.
Alaska Airlines contracted with Stumptown to develop the coffee, because taste buds react differently at higher elevations.
The blend uses Stumptown's Holler Mountain roast as a base. It's smooth with aromatic notes of toasted marshmallows, browned butter and toffee with hints of citrus and cherry.
They brewed over 200 pots of coffee and tested 20 variables before coming up with the final blend.
