Terroir is a new project for Onyx. Most coffee farmers solely rely on their coffee harvest to earn a living. The use of bees has always been a crucial step in helping the coffee trees to blossom. We are trying to provide a supplemental income for farmers by selling some of their farm's resources. First with cacao and now with coffee blossom honey. We're just trying to make the life of a coffee farmer a little bit sweeter (get it?).
Geometry has been defined as "describing spaces that lie beyond the normal range of human experience." Soon it will also be defined as "that coffee from Onyx that I am in love with and completely redefined my relationship with coffee."
It's our answer for everything and has two of our favorite coffees - a washed processed Ethiopian & Colombian. This blend has become one of our favorite coffees. We love it as a filter coffee, and we love it as espresso. And not only does is it taste great as either but it's easy to dial in as espresso or filter.

Basecamp Coffee: Trail Blazer Blend
The first of many. From a love of rich, comforting flavors,Trail Blazer was born. As our first coffee, it is the the perfect blend to start the adventure of what Basecamp Coffee Company is all about.

Basecamp Coffee Co: Bear Paw Blend
Being rooted with a deep love for Arkansas, when we think honey, we think bears. Bear Paw Blend is what made us fall for floral noted coffee. In this two part blend of Central American washed coffees with naturally processed Ethiopian beans, you’ll find prominent honey and delicate floral notes. Delicious as batch and single brew, or try it at Basecamp as our new house espresso. Try keeping your bear paws out of this honey ... we know we can’t!

Onyx Coffee Lab: Power Nap (Half-Caf Single Origin)
OK, so you need a quick burst of energy, but your bedtime is in three hours. You also have unbelievably high standards & brag to all my friends that you only brew single origin coffees. You, my friend, need a POWER NAP. You already love our Aponte Village honey-processed coffee from Colombia. Well, we secretly had a portion of the Aponte harvest decaffeinated through a natural sugar cane process. Using both, we created a “half-caf” blend just for you. 50% of our beloved Aponte Village and 50% of our Decaf Aponte Village. So is it a blend? Is it a single origin?… Welcome to this tasty paradox.

Onyx Coffee Lab: Colombia Inmaculada Eugenidoides
This is not coffee. Okay, it is technically coffee, but not in the traditional sense. This is a resurrected species of the coffee plant known as Eugenioides. Only a few farms in the world have this coffee, and only one we know of in production, which is the experimental Inmaculada Coffee Farms in Colombia. It is, without a doubt, the sweetest coffee you have ever tasted. This is a once a year opportunity to experience this agricultural phenomenon as so little of this coffee is ever grown and exported.
Origins: Las Nubes (elevation 1900 meters)
Cup: Cola, Passion Fruit, Lucky Charms, Guava
