As a digital weekly released at six a.m. every Saturday morning, Air Mail is practically mandated to be consumed with a steaming-hot cup of coffee in hand. The only surprise, then, is that it’s taken us this long to develop our own formulation. At last, that day has arrived, with the launch of Jet Fuel, our new proprietary roast created with our friends at Flying Coffee, a new fair-trade company that sources single-origin beans from a third-generation family farm in Colombia.

And what better way to bring Jet Fuel into the world than with a roving coffee cart? Air Mail Express, our retrofitted Piaggio Apé, kicked off its summer tour of New York (and its environs) at Charlie Bird, and now that New York has officially abandoned coronavirus restrictions, we decided that a celebration was in order.
