Merry Hill is welcoming innovative global café chain Black Sheep Coffee, known for its great-tasting coffee served in a cool urban setting complete with custom graffiti.

Opening on Wednesday 20 March, the café adds to the 65 new stores, restaurants and entertainment that opened in 2023 at Merry Hill.

Black Sheep Coffee was founded by university students Eirik and Gabriel, who set out to beat boring coffee and provide the world with incredible flavours. After opening the first outlet in Camden in 2013, a decade on from its first opening, the brand now has over 82 coffee shops across five countries.

The brand is known for being the first to serve specialty-grade Robusta coffee in the UK, which has a higher caffeine content than more commonly used arabica beans, perfect for those who prefer strong and intense coffee flavour.

Black Sheep Coffee will open its doors on the Lower Mall next to Hotel Chocolat, opposite Nike Unite, creating around 13 new jobs for the local community.

Visitors can enjoy a range of café foods including freshly made pastries, cakes, Norwegian waffles, bagels, and toasties. The café will also be serving up a bespoke breakfast menu including an All-day Breakfast Hot Wrap and Ham & Cheddar Croissant.

Merry Hill visitors can also try Black Sheep Coffee’s signature drinks, the Black Hoof, a Robusta bean espresso with coconut oil, cinnamon and milk, and the Vietnamese Iced Coffee, an espresso with whole milk and condensed milk over ice.

The new café has self-service kiosks and WiFi, with space for up to 65 customers at one time.
