We’re not really sure where the time has gone this year, but we’re excited to be cosying up during the winter months! It’s October which means it’s not just spooky season, it’s coffee season – especially at 200 Degrees Coffee☕.
So why did they call themselves 200 Degrees? Because they roast coffee at a slightly lower temperature than normal of 200 degrees centigrade that yields it’s smoother, deeper taste. They then serve coffee at around 200 degrees Fahrenheit, so it made perfect sense!
Why 200 Degrees
Everything they do at 200 Degrees is a celebration of coffee. Its shop at Metquarter is perfectly curated to enjoy your coffee in a relaxed and inviting environment, with access to free wifi and freshly prepared food.
Its hand roasted beans are exceptionally fresh and the strict quality control means that senior members of the team give the thumbs up to every single batch leaving their roastery.
Better Working Conditions
200 Degrees work with a number of specialist coffee importers and can tell you exactly where the beans are grown, who farmed them and what the community is like close to the farm.
Many of their beans are Rainforest Alliance certified, but they also support farms that have a track record of acting ethically towards their workers and help their local community, as many smaller growers who share their values are not big enough to fund the certification process. This ensures that smaller growers receive the funds they need to grow bigger and support their workers and local communities.
They can also offer a decaf version of your favourite coffee, decaffeinated using the mountain water method. This removes 99.9% of the caffeine, leaving the flavour intact, without touching chemicals.
So if you’re looking for a delicious cup of coffee that’s prepared with love by expert roasters and baristas, be sure to join us at 200 Degrees at Metquarter☕.
