Free coffee? Dreams do come true.
We get up, we get ready and we all find ways to get through the day. We find happiness within chaos and balance within variables. Some find solace in privacy and silence and some escape through the company of others. Enter 92 Degrees, the place where both can retreat and where the one constant is good coffee. They’ve just opened within Rex, Liverpool’s new independent department store and they’re cutting the big red ribbon in style. With silky flat whites, strong and dark espressos and more and the first 92 people won’t pay a penny.
The name is inspired by where they believe the best temperature for coffee extractions begins in a brew. A way to pay homage to the humble bean and and harnesses all its flavour. Unless you carry a thermometer around with you, you’ll have to take their word for it. They opened up in the Old Blind School, a neo-classical building founded in the 1790’s that most recently housed one of the Liverpool Biennial’s exhibitions not so long ago and are now spreading their wings to Bold Street. It looks amazing, it tastes good and the synergy between two great independents is what we love to see.
Head to 24-26 Bold Street tomorrow from 9am onwards for a free coffee. Pass it on to a homeless person, drink it, bathe in it, do whatever you want, just make sure you head down.
