Outpost café opened a second shop in Nottingham on Saturday 2 December.

Just 18 months after their launch in Hockley, specialist coffee shop, Outpost, has a new shop opposite the Brian Clough statue on Kings Street.

Harley Butcher, the manager at Outpost, picked up the keys and opened the shop in just four days.

The 29-year old said: “We signed the lease eight days before opening and we weren’t even allowed in to the building for the first four days.

Harley Butcher has recently travelled to Rwanda to source his coffee.

“It was crazy, with a lot of help from some regulars from the other shop, we mucked in and brought the place back to life.”

The café, who are focused on providing stand out coffee, source and roast their own coffee. Harley thinks it’s for this reason the café has received a lot of exposure from industry experts across social media.

Harley said: “In the middle of October I spent ten days in Rwanda and Uganda sourcing some great coffee and next year we’re looking to purchase between 10 and 15 tonnes of coffee from the coffee estate I stayed at.”

Outpost only opened their first shop 18 months ago

Aaron Pritty, a student at Nottingham Trent, said: “Outpost serves some of the best coffee around the country, so it’s no surprise they’ve opened another shop.”

The pop-up shop is open to at least the end of January but Harley, originally from Norwich, hopes to keep the shop on a more permanent basis.

The building, which used to be a flower shop, boasts a basement space which Outpost has used for seating space.

The launch of Outpost’s second shop follows recent reports that show the coffee industry has grown every year for the past 16 years.
