Independent coffee roasters and baristas 92° are expanding, bringing their artisan coffee to the city centre.
Having started up in Liverpool, they currently have three branches in Liverpool, one in Southport and one in Leeds.
Their sixth branch will open soon on the ground floor of the TRINITY building on John Dalton Street.
92° take pride in their small-batch, hand production methods to ensure consistency and quality, with an ethos based on social and environmental sustainability.
92°C is the perfect temperature for extracting espresso with great body and flavour, which is where the brand got their name from.
“We had our eye on Trinity for a while,” said Jack Brewitt, CEO of 92°.
“We’ve been keen to expand into Manchester for some time and TRINITY is a great spot, being nestled between the traditional business core and Spinningfields.
“The building really appealed to us with its high quality, modern finishes – we can’t wait to open this Spring.”
TRINITY was acquired by Helical Plc in 2017 and underwent a £6M transformation, which finished in 2019.
Extensive remodelling of the building created an additional 10,000 sq ft of workspace, in addition to an impressive double height reception area with two ground floor retail units attached.
The first unit, with mezzanine level and stylish fit out, has now been let to 92°.
“We transformed the ground floor at TRINITY to bring vibrancy at street level but also provide an amenity for people working in the building,” said William Parry, Senior Property Executive at Helical Plc.
“With people returning to the office this Spring, it is perfect timing to have 92° open in the building.”
Nicola Harrington Director at Sixteen Real Estate said: “Despite the ongoing situation with COVID, we’ve had a lot of interest in this unit at TRINITY and it’s great to see 92° move in this Spring.
“They’re a great fit for the building and will be hugely popular once people get back to the office.”
