Our Story

Where do I start?  First question I get is Why Camp?  The name Camp Coffee is short for "Campbell Family Coffee Roasters"   and I, Jason Campbell - lead roaster and founder, picked up the nickname "Jay Camp" in Iraq in my early days in the US Army.   Back in 2003,  I began a journey in coffee right in downtown Boone.    Learning on a small fluid bed roaster, one of which we use in our shop along side our 6 pound San Fran drum roaster, I began a path down a road of obsession in route to the perfect coffees.  Over a decade later, my business partner and amazing wife Amanda and I are still on the path to amazing coffees... only now there is an extraordinary team around us and we are going full steam ahead towards creating amazing coffee to put in your mug.

We have been on Main Street in Blowing Rock since 2010 and we love hanging out here in the mountains.   Our roasting lab and cupping room is next door to Footsloggers of Blowing Rock and our coffee shop is in the cozy attic above Footsloggers.  We share a historic building with the authorities in outdoor activities as they offer provisions for all your adventures ...and we provide the caffeine.  We invite you to stop by and visit our espresso bar and coffee roaster/cupping room.  Our baristas are crafting some of the finest espresso drinks around while we roast select coffee beans from around the world.

Our Team

Team Camp has a passion for coffee.  We are always learning and looking for new ideas and techniques to make the best coffee we can craft.  But... once we have had our coffee, we pursue our other favorite passion...Playing Outside.  Our baristas love spending time skiing, climbing on the rocks, in the woods hiking and running , on bikes both on the road and on the trails and just having fun in these amazing mountains we call home.   Thats why we say...

Lets Go Outside and Play...But First, Coffee!

 

OUR MISSION

We aim to bring that cup to each and every one of you.  Cheers!
