‘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.
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 transparant, meaning you can come and visit and ask questions!
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.
