Onyx Coffee Lab, whose employees won several awards this past weekend at U.S. Coffee Champs in Orange County, has joined forces with Pacific Foods in a one-of-a-kind sustainable space in Bentonville, Arkansas.
At the coffee company’s new and fourth location, the base of all drinks served will be Pacific Foods Barista Series Oat Original Plant-Based Beverage. Onyx will still serve dairy-based drinks on request with an additional “carbon tax.”
“Onyx Coffee Lab is known for their extraordinary pairing of quality and innovation—and using our Oat as the main beverage option exemplifies that,” says Nathanael May, Pacific Foods Barista Series customer marketing manager for specialty coffee. “The emphasis on plant-based beverages and the unique service possibilities with a mechanized to-go option is exciting, and we’re thrilled to be part of it. Onyx, like Pacific, is never satisfied with good enough. They’re always pushing the industry forward.”
The new space is on the east side of the Momentary building, a recently opened contemporary art space. The café will have room for 30 people indoors, 18 behind the bar, and 20 outdoors. It is open Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
