Nottingham bakery boosts coffee credentials with 200 Degrees hire

A new bakery in Nottingham has boosted its foodservice credentials with the appointment of an expert barista, the latest in a number of new hires.

The Bakehouse, an artisan bakery, café and micro pub in Sherwood has hired barista Billy Fowler from Nottingham’s specialist coffee roasters 200 Degrees.

Fowler brings with him four years of expertise in the sector, holding a range of front of house roles at establishments across the city including the Nottingham Contemporary.

His appointment is the latest in a raft of new hires as the Bakehouse continues its growth since opening in November. It now employs nine team members, and is looking to appoint an additional two members of staff in the New Year.

Established by Michelin-trained chef Craig Poynter, whose career has seen him cook for distinguished diners including Barack Obama and Prince William and Kate, the Mansfield Road site offers hundreds of products baked fresh from scratch on the premises every day.

Poynter said: “We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the highest quality products across the board and are thrilled to have Billy join our busy team.

“We actively support local food and drink suppliers and engaged 200 Degrees to supply our coffee from the off. All of our staff have received the accompanying 200 Degrees training in creating the perfect cup, and Billy’s expertise – in particular his latte art skills – will take the Bakehouse’s coffee offer to a whole new level”.

Fowler added: “The Bakehouse’s ethos of great food and drink, created using traditional methods, sits perfectly with my background. The Bakehouse’s offer is unique in the city, and I’m very much looking forward to being part of this exciting venue’s continuing growth”.
