Devon based coffee producers, Camper Coffee Co. are celebrating after winning ‘Best Stand’ at this year’s Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink.

Exeter’s renowned food festival took place over the weekend of the 24th – 26th April  and saw around 20,000 foodies descend on Northernhay Gardens and Exeter Castle to enjoy chef demonstrations, family activities and top quality local food and drink.

The Camper Coffee Co. display was named best stand by Lord Mayor, Cllr Percy Prowse and was chosen from more than 100 stands at the festival. Derek Phillips, Festival Director said, “Well done to Camper Coffee Co on a great stand. With so many wonderful producers and stands to choose from it can be a challenge for our exhibitors to create an eye catching and individual presence but the Camper Coffee Co. van was a real treat to look at and very appealing."

Camper Coffee Co. is a mobile vintage café and coffee van run by Paul Maddick and Gary Williams who brew their own coffee from their rare and beautifully restored 1964 VW split screen container van named 'Rosie'.

They have built their business with a strong focus on service, a greater understanding of the coffee industry and the importance of supporting other local suppliers.  This includes their house espresso which is roasted nearby. They currently have two coffee shops and also serve coffee at Exeter Chiefs Premiership Rugby Club as well as festivals, weddings, farmers markets and other events. 

Paul from Camper Coffee Co. said "We’ve spent the last two years creating, building and developing a local brand that ticks all of the right boxes for coffee lovers. To receive recognition from Exeter Food and Drink Festival is great. We look forward to our third year of trading and would like to thank our customers for their continued support."

Camper Coffee Co win a free stand at next years’ festival which will be taking place from 22nd – 24th April 2016.
