The coffee shop will be opening shortly in a vacant unit next door to The Works. Sourced specifically for Black Sheep Coffee their house espresso is a single origin specialty Robusta coffee from the mineral rich soils along the Bhadrariver belt in India. The caffeine content of its Robusta Revival Beans has a higher rate of absorption than Arabica beans. This creates for a more intense, long lasting caffeine effect that makes for a much more powerful coffee experience.

In June 2019, Black Sheep Coffee raised £13 million, bringing the total raised to £19 million, all from private investors and valuing the business at £109.2 million.
