Keep Colchester Cool can reveal that Black Sheep Coffee will at long last open its doors in Colchester’s Lion Walk Shopping Centre on Sunday 15th January 2023.

Founded in 2013 by Gabriel Shohet and Eirik Holth, Black Sheep Coffee have ‘left the herd behind’ when it comes to coffee in the UK thanks to their 100% specialty grade Robusta coffee and renowned espresso martinis, which are served in stylish all-day stores that turn into cocktail bars in the evenings.

Black Sheep Coffee are widely known for their sustainable and environmentally friendly policies which includes no single-use plastics. All of the coffee cups and takeaway packaging used across their stores are sourced from Vegware and are 100% compostable. The company has a ‘coffee board’ initiative to help fight against social exclusion, where customers can donate their loyalty cards or buy a second discounted coffee so that the homeless can benefit from a free brew.

Customers will be able to enjoy fresh coffee brews, iced lattes, organic smoothies and shakes, as well as espresso martinis and chilled crafted beers served in the evening.

Black Sheep Coffee will also serve mouth-watering treats such as freshly baked pastries, cakes, muffins, cookies, brownies, toasted bagels and toasties. Also on the menu are their famous Norwegian waffles with flavour combinations including strawberries and cream, Nutella and banana and the Norwegian classic brown cheese and jam.
