You may have noticed some posters popping up around site and you will soon notice some changes happening in several of the catering areas around the University.
Here’s everything you need to know.
What is happening?
Throughout the summer, some of our catering outlets are getting a facelift and some exciting new offers will be opening at the start of term.
Elgar Café will see possibly the most exciting changes, with a new 53.3 Degrees coffee bar and we can’t wait to welcome you in.
For this work to take place Elgar Café will be closed from Thursday 22 August and will re-open on Sunday 8 September. During this time of closure, Rock Café (Starbucks) will be open for longer.
Please note, that your Costa Loyalty Card will be accepted at Rock Café whilst the works are going on and then in Elgar Café when the works are complete.
Whether we are your first stop in the morning for your much-needed flat white or whether you are taking a break away from your studies or desk at lunchtime for a bite to eat, we will always have plenty on offer here for you.
And here’s a little bit about us
Our name, 53.3 Degrees is the latitude in which our beans are roasted and provides the origin for our name. Our brand is based upon connecting people from around the world, creating a special coffee experience.
We have met the farmers who grow your coffee and what’s integral to us is that we support them and their families. To do so, not only do we buy 100% Fairtrade, but 53.3 pence from every kilo of coffee we buy is donated back to the coffee farming communities in Anserma. This money is spent on local community projects which support a sustainable future for the farmers and their families.
What’s on offer
To give you a flavour of what we are about, we hope you enjoy trying our Fairtrade single origin coffee, grown and handpicked in Colombia or our much-loved House blend, comprising of coffee from some of the finest coffee growing regions.
Don’t love coffee? Don’t worry, we have plenty more on offer. Standing strong alongside our hot drinks is our cold refreshing drinks range. The range includes indulgent frappes, light lemonade coolers, shaken iced tea and of course the well-known favourites on ice. And let’s not forget the British favourite – tea! This will always be a staple on our menu board and is supported by a range of herbal and fruit infusions. Also Fairtrade, the range of teas we offer are either bagged in silk pyramids or loose leaf dependant on the environment.
Keeping it fresh each season – To spice it up a little more our seasonal drinks range will delight each quarterly drinks promo. In September, be treated by our Autumn flavours and when Christmas comes along expect gingerbread, spiced hot chocolates and festive favourites to appear on the menu.
