“The ul­ti­mate dream for me was al­ways to have a roast­ery and café rolled into one,” says Jamie Boland (above right), owner of Manch­ester’s An­coats Cof­fee Co. “It made lots of sense to ex­pose as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to the pro­cess of roast­ing – it’s a fas­ci­nat­ing thing to see.”

Housed in a for­mer cot­ton mill, An­coats Cof­fee Co has quickly es­tab­lished it­self as one of the go-to places for cof­fee in the north-west. Boland first ex­pe­ri­enced great cof­fee when he was sleep­ing on a friend’s sofa in Mel­bourne, where he found work as a barista. “When I even­tu­ally came back to Manch­ester, it was a bit of a shock as I was used to hav­ing awe­some cof­fee on ev­ery street corner, but I strug­gled to find a de­cent cof­fee any­where. That’s when I de­cided to set up a busi­ness, with the aim of bring­ing some of the Australian cof­fee cul­ture back to Manch­ester.”

Set against the bare brick walls and iron pil­lars of the Royal Mills, try the ap­pro­pri­ately named Ware­house City sea­sonal espresso roasted in small batches in the café it­self. an­coats-cof­
