If you want to run a successful coffee shop these days you are expected to provide an excellent customer service, friendly atmosphere, great food and drinks and of course a free wi-fi for these who work from home and seek a break from the home distractions.
Unfortunately a coffee shop full of customers on laptops doesn’t often create a welcoming atmosphere for the others therefore we have made a decision to ban laptops from our café in East Finchley as of 1st December 2023 for multiple reasons. For more information click on "Read more".
Last week we have received some exciting news from our partners PROJECT WATERFALL about the completion of one of their flagship projects in Jabi Tehnan, Ethiopia.
Campbell & Syme and its customers helped fund this project along with other coffee companies through raising money during the UK Coffee Week and also through the paper cup charge for takeaway drinks we introduced later in 2019.
"This project started in 2018 and construction was in full swing at the beginning of 2020, making it one of the first projects to face the early challenges of COVID-19. This means that the funds has not only meant clean water to drink, but also sanitation and hygiene training in a time when washing our hands became more important than ever.
Today, clean water is flowing in three villages - Woynima, Guay Wubeshet and Mankusa Abduguma, and has changed the lives of over 10,571 people."
