200 Degrees reopens second coffee venue

East Midlands coffee roasters 200 Degress has reopened its second oulet of the week – this time in Lincoln.

On Monday, 200 Degrees announced it was reopening its Carrington Street venue; this has been followed by its premises on Sincil Street in Lincoln. Again, 200 Degrees is offering a takeaway-only service in the city.

Co-founder of 200 Degrees, Rob Darby, said: “We’d like to thank everyone for their continued support of 200 Degrees during these unprecedented times, and we are so pleased to be reopening our popular Lincoln shop for a takeaway service.

“We are looking forward to welcoming back our loyal customers and seeing new faces who are looking to grab a cup of our well-loved coffee, as well as other hot and cold beverages and cakes to enjoy on the go.

“The safety of our customers and team is always our main priority and due to the current situation, we have taken all the necessary steps to ensure government safety guidance is strictly adhered to.

“The decision to reopen the Lincoln shop was due to the fact that it is a large store so we have plenty of space to put into place the social distancing measures, and being so close to the bus and train stations, it has a strong takeaway trade normally. It’s in a good position for people to safely grab a coffee whilst commuting to work or taking their daily stroll.

“In addition, we opened one of our Nottingham shops earlier this week for takeaway service which has gone well, and we feel that this and the Lincoln shop opening are positive first steps towards reintroducing our offering to the public. We will be looking at growing our food options and potentially opening further shops for takeaway in due course.”
