A medium roast for espresso and filter coffee, with notes of milk chocolate, hazelnut and caramel.
We love to explore the full delicious spectrum of flavours speciality coffee has to offer, but we also know there’s a time and a place for a mug of something easy and familiar—that’s why we roast our Basecamp Coffee. It’s a single-origin fully traceable coffee, just like our other beans, but the flavour profile is always the same: nutty, chocolatey, mellow, sweet and full-bodied. It’ll taste great brewed as a cafetière or espresso, black or with milk. If you are new to speciality coffee and lighter roast profiles, then Basecamp is a great place to start your journey.
Our current Basecamp selection: Brazil Lázaro Ribeiro Farm: Fazenda Congonhas Region: Cerrado Altitude: 950 m.a.s.l. Varietal: mixed peaberry Process: natural
The farm is owned by Lázaro Ribeiro. Initially, coffee cultivation was just a way to diversify his activities, but the love of coffee has taken hold and is now both a passion and a full-time commitment. Lazaro is a perfectionist and 70% of his production is focused on speciality coffee. The quality comes from selecting seedlings, varieties, management, harvesting and post-harvest.
Gustavo Ribeiro, Lazaro's son, has the same passion with a specific focus on processing in the incessant search for excellence. Gustavo explains that his connection to coffee was a combination of consequence and passion since from a very young age he had contact with the crop.
Kamba coffee, from whom we have sourced this lot, have worked with Lazaro for three years now and have constantly been blown away by the profiles he manages to produce. For this lot they have collected the PB coffees from across Lazaro's specialty production and combined them to create this Cerrado PB.
