A speciality coffee shop opened in a former village pub near Lincoln at the weekend.
Seven Districts Coffee owners Ben Southall and Ellis Purvis opened the shop in the former Farmers Arms on Market Rasen Road in Welton Hill on Saturday, September 19.
The business partners, who are both aged 29 and grew up in Nettleham, were roasting their coffee from an industrial unit in Reepham, but this has now been relocated into the new shop.
The shop sells homemade cakes, paninis and salads, as well as seven different types of speciality coffee including one from the Supia region of Colombia.
The menu also includes a tasting tray with a selection of three single origin coffees to taste. The three glasses of coffee, and one of water, will be served in a wooden tray with tasting cards priced at £5.
The shop, which created six new jobs, also caters for both gluten free and vegan customers.
There are also plans to expand the menu further in the future, including adding artisan donuts.
People will be able to watch coffee being roasted, while tasting sessions will also be planned for customers to learn about the different types of beans Seven Districts Coffee source.
Ben told The Lincolnite: “The opening weekend went really well. We had a queue out the door, partly due to the restrictions, but also people were excited and we had amazing feedback.”
He added that they have been asked a lot if it is a dog friendly coffee house, to which he replied: “If you dog is friendly, like our charming Harold, you’re more than welcome to bring your pup and sit in the top section.”
The dog may even get a puppuccino – a whipped cream with dog treat dessert.
The shop will be open between 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 9.30am-4pm on Sunday.
