We’re an artisan roastery nestled away in a coastal town, Knysna. Established in 2019, with a task to bring speciality coffee to Knynsa. The name Trinity is a representation of the group of 3 things when it comes to the coffee industry, Farmer-Roaster-Cup. Attention to detail and respect for the process. We roast to highlight the unique character that every Single Origin has to offer, showcasing the farmers hard work.

Trinity started off with a strong desire to experience true coffee from some of the best coffee regions around the world, especially African coffee. We have a passion for widening our customers coffee horizons. To educate and inform. At Trinity feedback is our driving factor, our fellow coffee enthusiasts all have their part to play with each coffee we make and beans we roast.  


Our Roastery & Cafe


Why do we focus on Single Origin Coffee?

Single Origin means that the beans are all sourced from the same place. Single Origin signals higher quality. Apart from the unique character , the value it brings to the farmer is so impressive. It is processed through the direct trade practice ensuring the farmers get a fair price for their produces. With sustainable and reliable income, they keep producing high-quality beans through sustainable and environment-friendly cultivation process.Single origin beans are invariably specialty coffee and picked by hand, usually in small farms in far flung equatorial countries.

We love to make it an adventure for our customers to try new origins in our hopper ever so often. 

How we roast?

Our roasting philosophy:

When we find coffee’s that we want to introduce to our clients we have a Trinity checklist that must be ticked off:

Fair Trade:

This is a must as the farmer needs to be compensated for the effort work and love that has been put in to growing the coffee we so need each and every day.

SCA OF 82+

Speciality cupping score of at least 82 points+. This is a speciality coffee score standard and higher scores mean more potential and unique flavours in that the coffee.


It’s all good to have good fresh green coffee beans, but the only way to truly know what we present to our customers is to cup the coffee.

This is a protocol that is used in the industry to determine the SCA but also a great way to see if the roaster is hitting the right notes.

Each coffee is unique, each coffee is roasted with it’s own profile.

The roasting process is based on each Coffee Origin:

There are many factors to consider about the growing regions of the coffee, how high it’s grown what process method has been used after the harvest and what type of Arabica varietal is used.

Our roasting methodology is roasting coffee that could be enjoyed at any moment of the day, each of our offerings do explain more of the coffee to make the decision easier for our consumers.

Words from our Roaster, 

“Coffee is a drink that brings family, friends and all people together, to be able to take part in that journey is what excites me.”
