200 Degrees to open in Lincoln, UK
Speciality coffee roaster and wholesaler, 200 Degrees, will open a new location in Lincoln, UK in March, bringing handcrafted fresh food and artisan coffee to the city.
It will be the roastr’s eighth shop in the UK, serving freshly roasted coffee from its Roast House in nearby Nottingham.
Coffee lovers will be able to purchase the brand’s own roasted beans in store and online, and for coffee enthusiasts, the new shop will have a barista school on its mezzanine floor to offer coffee training for a range of experience levels – from budding beginners, all the way through to trained baristas.
The company also plans to support independent retail businesses in Lincoln with a series of pop-up events in store.
Tom Vincent, co-founder and director of 200 Degrees, said: “We saw an opening for our specialist coffee shop to join this diverse city and we very much look forward to opening in Lincoln in March. Lincoln is steeped in history and has so much beautiful architecture and we’re so pleased to have found a fantastic old building in the heart of the recently transformed Cornhill Quarter.
“We want to support Lincoln’s burgeoning coffee population and become an integral part of the vibrant community by offering a comfortable and stylish venue that makes people feel at home with great coffee and food.
“With our roast house less than an hour away, we can supply fresh coffee to our new store regularly and the 200 Degrees brand will complement the diverse range of local and independent shops on Lincoln’s streetscape.
“We also hope to host a series of pop up events to align ourselves with other Lincoln-based brands and offer the community something extra. Our barista school will offer an engaging space to learn the craft of bean to cup and we invite the local student population to come down and take part in this.”
200 Degrees, which was set up by Tom and his business partner Rob Darby in 2012, has distinctive coffee shops in Nottingham, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Leicester and Cardiff. The company has further national expansion plans with a shop in Manchester due to open in 2019.
The Sincil Street coffee shop will be open 7:30am-8pm Monday to Friday, 8am-7pm Saturdays and 9:30am-6pm on Sundays.
