Base Espresso

At Base the food philosophy is about fresh, healthful and interesting! Focusing on serving locally sourced organic alternatives and encouraging less use of processed products, they are constantly searching for new ideas.  The constant focus of their head chef combs through the history of classic nutritious solutions.

Succulent lamb skewers with mouth watering roasted sweet potato and Lebanese cucumber, some vegan inspired house made falafels with salad and natural yoghurt or the spicy pumpkin, fetta and walnut patties served with baby spinach and beetroot in a burger roll are just three of their new contemporary dishes.

Head Barista Timothy Sweet tells us that Base Espresso works in partnership with Southern Queensland roaster Uncle Joe’s. Leaders in the industry and passionate about specialty coffee roasting, Uncle Joe’s local roaster and supplier to Base is 3rd Crack Brokerage, two times winners of the Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition for 2014 and 2015. Base also works with Cartel Specialty Coffee, which allows them to serve 100% traceable, organic, sustainable and highly graded coffee, roasted in a unique way to best represent the detail of the flavour.

The house blend ‘Novus Arcana’ is a rotating seasonal selection of the best performing coffee from their roasting partners. “It is synchronised and carefully balanced to deliver an elegant and harmonious experience,” says Tim. Every coffee is weighed and timed in co-ordination with a very specific brewing ratio to deliver exceptional consistency and quality.

Unlike many employees in the hospitality industry who rely on the staff roster reflecting as many casual hours as possible, the majority of staff at Base work in a full time capacity and this tends to ensure better customer service. In addition, staff self esteem improves and careers have been forged as a result of full time status and recognition. At Base the focus on full time careers ensures the critical area of ensuring great customer services improves greatly.

Base round out their café offering with a great range of boutique beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. They have some classic Australian and international beers, a wine selection to suit most tastes, the increasingly popular ciders including the Kopperberg Pear, and of course you must try their Espresso Martini.
