Inner West favourite, Campos Coffee, has arrived on The Streets of Barangaroo
In recent times, Sydney has seen a surge in trendy Inner East and West restaurateurs and café operators making the move to the city, with the draw of the harbour and captive audience of CBD workers and visitors proving a recipe for success. Now, Campos Coffee has taken up residence on The Streets of Barangaroo with their first CBD operation.
The original Campos Coffee site in Newtown has been serving loyal customers since 2002, and has become a cultural cornerstone for the Newtown area. Their loyal customers have fallen in love with not just the product and highly trained baristas (the store is a long running recipient of the SMH Good Café Guide 3 Cups rating), but also the vibe and energy created by the store.
The Newtown store currently serves up to 1,500 coffees every day, and the Campos Coffee team are prepared for their store on The Streets of Barangaroo to be just as busy. Situated within the lobby of Tower 3 International Towers Sydney, Campos Coffee has brought their flair for creating retail theatre and quality coffee to the city, becoming only the fourth company-owned outlet, and the only CBD store for the brand.
“We've brought our high energy, fast paced team of baristas to Barangaroo to create great theatre in the lobby and to keep the caffeine levels of the workers topped up,” says Howard Gill, General Manager of Retail at Campos Coffee. The store also serves their delicious pastries which are baked fresh daily from their bakery, Rosetta Stone, in Alexandria.
For Campos, however, it isn’t just about creating a great product.
The process of how they get from bean to cup is a pivotal part of their business; with ethics, sustainability and social enterprise at the heart of the Campos Coffee culture. The organisation supports many local and international projects which aim to positively influence the local communities in which they operate. From establishing fair trade relationships with coffee farmers by purchasing beans for higher than market price, to providing donations to schools in lower socio economic regions, and helping to fund cardiac surgery for adolescents and young adults afflicted with rheumatic and congenital heart disease in Rwanda, Campos Coffee doesn’t just spruik sustainability – they take action.
Campos Coffee is now open in Tower 3, International Towers Sydney
