The story of HQ
Built in 1896 as a stockbroker's office, this gorgeous, four storey Victorian red-brick is steeped in local history and retains many of its original period features. Located just off College Green and minutes walk from Grafton Street, we fell in love with 3 Trinity Street at first sight.
Now Coffeeangel's headquarters, HQ is home to a compact, perfectly formed coffee shop on the ground floor - designed primarily for take away coffee and snacks with limited seating, a barista training space, private rooms for hire as well as our admin offices.
When moving into a building of this beauty and heritage, we felt it important to imagine ourselves simply as passers-through. Every effort was made to minimise our impact on the fabric and detail of the building. Our fit out was again conceived by Chris Boyle Architecture through a series of interventions that can be easily removed, leaving little impact to the existing beauty, whilst maintaining a modern, considered, practical and permanent feel.
Open from Monday to Saturday, this shop has a full menu of espresso and filter coffees available, along with our freshly roasted coffee beans and brewing equipment for the aspiring home barista. Freshly baked goods prepared daily in our own Kitchen are also on offer.
