Nottingham coffee roaster comes of age with 18th venue

200 Degrees Coffee

Indie coffee roaster 200 Degrees is opening a coffee shop in Derby within the Derbion shopping centre on London Road.

The coffee shop, which will seat over 60 customers, will be on the ground floor of the centre next to Boots. It is the roaster’s 18th across England and Wales and is the seventh in the East Midlands; following shops in Lincoln, Leicester, Nottingham and at McArthur Glen East Midlands Designer Outlet.

The coffee shop will bring around 12 new full-time and part-jobs to Derby.

Rob Darby, CEO at 200 Degrees, said: “Being East Midlands-based, we have had our sights set on opening a coffee shop in Derby for some time – and it’s fantastic that we have now found the perfect location at Derbion.

“As a prime retail destination in the city, we are looking forward to serving our freshly roasted coffee blends and food to our new customers and being an active member of the centre and wider Derby community.”

Darby and his business partner, Tom Vincent, founded the company in 2012 in Nottingham, and have expanded the 200 Degrees footprint across England and Wales, now boasting shops in major cities including Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, York, Birmingham and Cardiff.
