Leave the herd behind with Black Sheep Coffee

19 March 2024

We’re excited to announce global café chain, Black Sheep Coffee, is now open at Merry Hill!

Known for its great-tasting coffee, Black Sheep Coffee was founded by university students Eirik and Gabriel, who set out to beat boring coffee and provide the world with incredible flavours. After opening the first outlet in Camden in 2013, a decade on from its first opening, the brand now has over 82 coffee shops across five countries.

The brand is known for being the first to serve specialty-grade Robusta coffee in the UK, which has a higher caffeine content than more commonly used arabica beans – perfect for those who prefer strong and intense coffee flavour.

Enjoy a range of café foods including freshly made pastries, cakes, Norwegian waffles, bagels, and toasties, as well as a bespoke breakfast menu including an All-day Breakfast Hot Wrap and Ham & Cheddar Croissant. You can also try Black Sheep Coffee’s signature drinks, the Black Hoof, a Robusta bean espresso with coconut oil, cinnamon and milk, and the Vietnamese Iced Coffee, an espresso with whole milk and condensed milk over ice.

Black Sheep Coffee is an exciting addition to the thriving food and drink scene at Merry Hill, building on a busy 2023 where we opened 65 new stores, restaurants and entertainment. With the arrival of renowned restaurant brand wagamama in June, second Starbucks café in September, alongside popular Italian restaurant ASK Italian, and fried chicken restaurant Sides, in November.

Award-winning, buffalo-style chicken wing restaurant, Wingstop, and burger joint, Boo Burger, are also coming soon in 2024.

Jonathan Poole, Centre Manager at Merry Hill, said: “Black Sheep Coffee is an exciting addition to the vibrant mix of food and drink we already offer at Merry Hill, with visitors able to choose from a host of different cuisines and dining experiences at our restaurants, cafes, and Eat Central eateries.

“It’s great to see a popular home-grown café chain like Black Sheep Coffee choosing Merry Hill to expand its UK footprint, and we’re sure that its mix of quality food and signature drinks will be a firm favourite among our shoppers.

“Black Sheep Coffee’s arrival is a great way to start the year. It comes after the recent openings of wagamama, ASK Italian and Hollywood Bowl – as we continue to expand how our visitors spend time with us while offering them unrivalled convenience.”
