Campos Coffee’s first permanent café outside Australia is now open for business.
Customers can now slide in off the ski slopes at Park City, Utah – home of the Sundance Film Festival – to pick up an Aussie coffee that tastes just like one customers recieve in Newtown, Sydney.
Carrying on its brand vision of ‘Quality Coffee Cultivated by Good’, Campos chose to open in Park City because it best reflects the core values of the brand, a commitment to quality service, community engagement, ethical business and innovative product offerings.
At the announcement of the US opening, Campos Coffee President Will Young told BeanScene Park City was the ideal location after months of searching for the “perfect spot”.
“As soon as we visited Park City, we knew it would be a perfect extension of the Campos Coffee brand. Walking around you can see the whole town has an active, inclusive and diverse community that cares about the environment. Add to this a significant dedication to the arts, such as the Sundance Movie Festival, and the decision was made,” Will said.
The café will cater to the evolving coffee culture in America, while still maintaining an Australian perspective on coffee.
Espresso drinks such as flat whites, cappuccinos, babycinos, and affogatos will all be served, with the Campos flare, as well as an exclusive filter coffee blend developed to suit the market.
Many Australian roasters made the decision to expand abroad in 2016.
Will says this transition is evidence of an “enormous wave toward independent specialty coffee in the US”.
“There are lots of amazing operators and roasters innovating and introducing new concepts in coffee to the market. This is happening not just in coffee, but also in craft beer, gin, cheese, bread – consumers are demanding premiumisation and innovation. This has created a demand from the US for new perspectives like Campos Coffee,” Will said.
