On a wander through town, or on your way past the train station, you may have had a little chortle at the witty A-boards decorating the pavements of Flying Horse Walk and Carrington Street. These are the siren song of 200° Coffee shops, a major player to emerge on the Nottingham coffee scene over the last few years, opening not one, but two cafes within a mile of one another...
It’s difficult to ignore the cry of a proper independent doing well in the city, especially one with a punning game as strong as their coffee. 200°’s efforts haven’t been ignored – attracting the likes of culinary wizard Sat Bains, musical maestro Rob Green, and nearly every bearded connoisseur in the city. They’ve done it by donning their lattes and flat whites with swans, fan leaves, lion heads, and a whole lot of love.
S’also good to know that they ethically source all their beans, dragging them all the way from places like the Columbian mountains and South India, and roasting them right here in Nottingham. After they’ve been tended to, the master roaster gives the caffeinated goods a taste test, making sure each mouthful is up to scratch. If these owd-fashioned methods sound like summat you want to get involved in, look no further. The boggers have even opened up their own Barista School that guides you through the processes of initial green-bean roasting, all the way through to pouring that nectar of gods.
Good news, too. They’ve just opened up their new 200° Roast House on Meadow Lane. Don’t be shy ducky, pop your bonce in.
