Our mission is to roast high quality coffee beans, via direct trade with bean farmers, whilst focusing on roaster-to-customer relations.
how it started
‘It all started way out in Northern California, 5127 miles away from my Bristol home. Where the mountains reign tall and the pine trees populate, my love for roasting was born. The chemistry, nature and complexities of coffee are what hooked me in. Triple Co Roast is the accumulation of my adventures, travels and dreams all underlined by a simple obsession with awesome coffee.’ - Jo Thompson, TCR Founder.
high quality coffee
Triple Co Roast is an open-access specialty roastery in the heart of the city of Bristol, England. It was founded by local Bristol boy Jo Thompson in early 2015 after he spent two years studying out in California, learning coffee and roasting at home. The mission is triple and always has been. To roast high quality coffee beans, small batch. To buy green coffee via direct trade with bean farmers and to focus on having amazing roaster-to-customer relations. We are open-access and transparent, meaning you can come and visit and ask questions!
no corner cutting
Our company is the fruit of a search for full picture positive and ethical business, no corner cutting. It was a desire to provide Bristol with sweet quality coffee coupled with a push to contribute to the community and culture already surrounding this growing industry. As we began looking into the ethics behind buying green coffee and it's importation, we saw how coffee transparency and traceability gave back to the farmer. These foundational truths mean we source our green coffee through relationship. This results in farmers getting a fair price for their crop and us getting quality coffee we know we can trust. From day one we have prioritised direct-trade and directly-traded coffee beans.
how coffee should taste
We buy only speciality high grade coffees. We believe coffee should be a sweet and tasty beverage void of bitterness. In our sourcing we aim to find the most high quality coffees that exhibit fruity and sweet qualities.
Sourced via true direct trade
We aim to source all our coffee via direct trade with famers, or coffee that has been directly traded by suppliers. We believe in an an ethical supply chain that rewards farmers and pays out bigger premiums for their hard work. We consistently pay 3x more for our coffee than the average New York 'C' coffee price.
