Lincoln’s latest coffee shop opens next week so The Lincolnite went for a sneak preview at its soft launch event on Friday.
As previously reported, the 200 Degrees coffee chain will open its eighth cafe with a new store located in phase two of the major Cornhill Quarter development on Monday, March 4.
The 90-seater coffee shop will be open 7.30am-8pm Monday to Friday, 8am-7pm Saturdays and 9.30am-6pm on Sundays.
The shop complete with a courtyard garden and purpose-built barista school brings 12 more jobs to the city.
It will serve coffee made using its own roasted beans along with a variety of fresh food prepared daily including salads, soups, sandwiches, cakes and pastries.
There will be plenty of vegan and gluten free options with everything available to eat in or takeaway.
The shop will also sell prepackaged coffee and home brewing equipment.
200 Degrees fifth barista school will be on the mezzanine floor offering expert coffee training for a range of experience.
200 Degrees was set up by co-founder and director Tom Vincent and his business partner Rob Darby in 2012.
Tom said: “A lot of hard work has gone into the opening and we’ve had our fair share of glitches and tense moments, we’re very excited to finally open our doors to the city and are honoured to become part of Lincoln’s thriving food and drink scene.”
He added: “We also hope to introduce our regular pop-up shops for small local producers to offer somewhere for creative people to showcase their talent and hopefully make a few quid.”
