At the present rate, Echo Park is on target to have a coffee house on every corner. This Wednesday, December 6, Triniti Coffee opens on Sunset Boulevard. The shop offers a unique perspective as co-owner Joseph Geiskopf’s first venture outside of working at some very notable restaurants.
Geiskopf was previously the sous chef at Jordan Kahn’s Red Medicine and Destroyer. Before that, he was a personal chef for Apple’s Tim Cook, and was a chef de partie at Copenhagen’s two-Michelin-star restaurant Noma. So it’s fair to say that Triniti might be aiming slightly above the average cafe.
The Sunset Boulevard space is a self-described European cafe and espresso bar, but it ultimately looks more like a casual Eastside lounge. Triniti will source coffee beans from the Bay Area’s Tartine Manufactory, which itself is about to debut an expansive new Manufactory restaurant and roastery next year in Downtown’s Industrial District. As for Triniti’s menu, they’ll offer small, seasonal plates much like Destroyer.
Triniti’s opening tomorrow is only one of many taking place in Echo Park. The forthcoming Pollen, along with the Hey Hey teahouse (which is in full build-out mode), should come online soon. And it’s all happening just a few blocks away from Triniti. Hours at Triniti are Wednesday through Sunday, from 8 a.m. through 6 p.m.
1814 W. Sunset Blvd.

UPDATE: a previous version of this article announced the opening on November 27. The correct opening date is Wednesday, December 6th.
