We Got That Bristol Bug...Now Open in Bristol
Bristol, a city famous for its art and graffiti, the birthplace of Banksy, the home to a 2,600 calorie burger which comes with a special prize, a pub that is also a farm, and people dressing as pirates thanks to Blackbeard being born here... from the sounds of it, we can say that Bristol is one mighty and unique city!
Being the fifth most affluent city in the UK, opening in Bristol was a no-brainer for us!
Our Bristol coffee-shop will now be our thirteenth shop, situated in Cabot Circus’ Quakers Friars piazza. The Bristol shop provides both indoor and outdoor seating space so plenty of space for meet-ups or chilling on your own!
"The new Bristol cafe has floor to ceiling windows and is flooded in natural light, with tables held up by scaffolding poles on top of which are small tubs of succulents, and on one table a self-service filter coffee area." Martin Booth, Bristol 24/7

“Bristol is a city on the rise. Welcoming more people in the comings years and consistently performs highly on the intake of tourists and commuters from other parts of the United Kingdom, making it an ideal location for our new Department of Coffee and Social Affairs coffee shop.” Ashley Lopez, CEO, Department of Coffee and Social Affairs
"...Department of Coffee and Social Affairs, is more than just your average café." Sophie Prideaux, Bristol Post (Read the full article by Bristol Post here)
Fun fact: Before the opening of the shop, we had our good friend and artist Rae Goddard come in to do a large mural on the feature wall in the shop. The artwork is of our Head Roaster Dumo Mathema and his right-hand man, our Roastery Operations Manager, Rick Tipton standing attentively looking at coffee beans being roasted in our roastery!
