Colectivo Coffee Artist Series • Basak Notz

We’re so excited to announce our next guest artist: Basak Notz

Basak is a Turkish visual storyteller that finds beauty in everyday life by embracing a slow and simplistic life—taking the time to fully appreciate and explore her surroundings.

Her artwork is inspired by her bi-continental experience; and she adds a personal touch to her whimsical illustrations through handwritten words.

Blue Heeler

Aside from being our top-selling blend since the beginning of Colectivo (or Alterra), Blue Heeler also has its own story. One of the original founders has a dog named Mina, an Australian Blue Heeler who would come to work everyday—and needless to say this Fair Trade Organic Coffee: Blue Heeler was created in her honor and memory.

Basak chose Blue Heeler as her canvas and has reimagined it to reflect her own experiences and artistic style. We hope you’ll enjoy her iteration of Blue Heeler, seen in a new light!

If you'd like to learn more about Basak and see more of her work, please visit her at:

For a limited time, this special edition bag of Blue Heeler will be available at all Chicago locations and on our webstore, while supplies last!
