Camilla’s approach to coffee is direct and straightforward, and sort of feels like what Camilla communicates organically. “I want to highlight what the green coffee can offer naturally. We don’t want to really add anything to it.” Speaking to Camilla means getting straightforward answers. No run on sentences, no guessing on questions she doesn’t know the answer to. Instead, Camilla is considerate and patient, weighing in when something needs to be said.
What is matchbook coffee project?
The Matchbook Coffee Project pushes the creative bounds of roasters to produce exciting and highly personal coffees. Our intention is to spotlight roasters by allowing them free reign over a coffee—not just through how the coffee roasted, but how the coffee is presented. Roasters will design logos, pick their own merchandise, and have complete say over how they want to communicate their coffee with their audience. Roasting is a highly technical and skilled profession, and through this project we hope to showcase both the unique abilities and tenacious determination each roaster has shown their craft.
