It’s roasters like Joe Syme and his mum Patricia of Campbell & Syme that have one main focus in mind – to serve speciality coffee roasted to bring out its best qualities.
This month in your Blue Coffee Box, you will find two speciality coffees that have been roasted by Campbel & Syme just for you!
Together with their team of 8 dedicated, passionate and unique people, they work tirelessly to roast and serve the best coffee possible.
Their approach to providing these types of roasted coffees come in the form of teaching workshops that provide the best roasting techniques out there, and this month, they are sharing them with all of you!
How it All Started
Joe Syme and his mum Patricia started the company in 2012 with the main focus – to serve speciality coffee roasted to bring out its best qualities and to provide the customers of East Finchley a wonderful experience in a setting where everyone always feels welcome & appreciated.
In 2014, Joe joined forces with Jon Cowell and Dumo Mathema to roast coffee on the site. They have been producing some delicious coffees and their roaster café is the ideal place to try them.
The Ethics Behind Campbell & Syme
Campell & Syme aim to highlight the excellence of coffee growing and production at the origin in their roasting and brewing, visiting farms to develop close relationships with producers. It’s not all about coffee.
They count it a great privilege to be able to work with so many amazing coffees sourced by great friends and real professionals and have the opportunity to highlight the natural qualities.
In order to do this, they ensure that they pay a premium above the cost of production which also enables their importers to support projects at the origin which improves the quality of life and gives an opportunity to those who are much less well off than the workers at Campbell & Syme.
It also ensures a better wage for the farmers & pickers that live in 50 of the world’s poorest countries and hardly have any other option how to provide for their families.
