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.
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!
