Award-winning independent roastery Ancoats Coffee Co is opening a second venue in Manchester city centre within one of Bruntwood Works’ Pioneer buildings, 111 Piccadilly.

The building, on Piccadilly Approach, will unveil its new look in Spring 2020 following a major refurbishment. Ancoats Coffee Co will be located on the ground floor, transforming the arrival experience, serving their fantastic wholesome food and coffee to the customers in the building and the general public.

Ancoats Coffee Co has been operating from a single dedicated roastery-cafe in Royal Mills, Ancoats since 2015. The company, founded in 2013 as a small batch independent roaster, began after the founder fell in love with Melbourne cafe culture, having worked there as a barista on his travels.

Their philosophy is to source and roast ‘speciality’ grade coffee beans from accredited importers, who share their ethos for sourcing ethically, sustainably and in season.

A member organisation of the Speciality Coffee Association (SCA), the team supply and work with numerous cafes, restaurants, bars and offices across the North West, UK and EU.

Ancoats Coffee Co also retail coffees globally through their website, distribute and install coffee equipment for several major manufacturers, and offer consultancy and training services.

The team is looking to replicate the success of the cafe within Royal Mills and continue their mission of getting Manchester drinking better, locally-roasted coffee! Expect the same level of detail, high-quality food and drink offerings and everything you would wish to experience if visiting their cafe-roastery itself.

A haven for coffee lovers, bringing together community, hospitality and shared experiences around wholesome food and fantastic coffee.

Jamie Boland from Ancoats Coffee Co said: “We’re thrilled to start the next phase of growth for the company and at the opportunity to work alongside Bruntwood Works within this exciting project.

“Being positioned within Bruntwood Works’ 111 Piccadilly will enable us to reach out to another part of the city from within an innovative and iconic building. The area around Piccadilly train station has historically been dominated by chain-operations and we’re really excited to bring an alternative, local and independent choice to workers and commuters alike.

“Sustainability is at the core of what we do and to be located in a building with WELL accreditation further emphasises this. As a company, Bruntwood Works understand what we’re about and they want to help bring our ethos and enthusiasm for coffee to their customers and beyond.”
