Some time, several years ago, two bar owners wanted to serve the best possible cup of coffee to their customers. Thus began a search, that started a journey, which became an obsession, and lead to three men being alone in the corner of a garage (with a coffee roaster) until finally, in 2012, they created 200 Degrees Coffee and decided to show it to the world, starting with Nottingham.
That was the beginning and there are now fifteen 200 Degrees coffee shops and six barista schools in the UK as well as hundreds of happy wholesale and business customers enjoying their ‘beans and machines’. So why did they call themselves 200 Degrees? It’s because they roast their coffee at a slightly lower temperature than normal of 200 degrees centigrade that, they say, yields a smoother, deeper taste. 200 Degrees then serve their coffee at around 200 degrees Fahrenheit, and so it all made sense.
Like lots of people, the team at 200 Degrees are passionate about coffee and whilst they're sure there are more important things in life, they just can't think of any. The team spends all day roasting, making, drinking and talking about ‘coffee coffee coffee coffee’ but they also understand that the perfect cup of coffee is not just about taste or even about what’s in the cup, it’s about doing everything the right way. As such, 200 Degrees aim to be a roastery with high standards in everything they do and that applies to their coffee, their shops, their service and the way they treat people, including our suppliers. Enjoy your cup.
