Devil's Cave BW Spot.jpg

Devil's Cave

A fiery, medium to dark roast with hints of cashew, pineapple, and apple. It creates a juicy cup with a 4/5 strength. 

The legend behind Devil's Cave is base on Dan's great-great grandfather who was known as the Devil. He was involved in a wager between the miners where the first man to get home would have free beer all night. Being the Devil, his tactic was a little more frightful than the rest. He dared to swim through the coal pit and come out via the mouth of the cave located at the end of Spittal beach. His venture paid off; he was the first man home and the drink flowed freely for him all night! We can't recommend anyone follow in his footsteps though!

Silver Street

New for 2021 is our Silver Street blend. This is a single origin medium roast using beans from Honduras with a 4/5 strength. Exclusive to our website and Silver Street itself.

 

Behind the name: Silver Street is one of the many streets which are bursting with history in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Known as Hidegate in medieval times, the street was once occupied in part as an Austin Friary which was disbanded before the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 1530s. More recently it has been known for housing Border Brewery and later a car showroom. Beneath a number of houses which run along the street lies a cellar, now largely disused but once intertwined with the various enterprises housed above. In the Second World War, the cellar was used as an air raid shelter.

 

We were delighted to take up residence in Silver Street in early 2020 and it was our pleasure to help bring a disused building back to life. Along the way we had an incredible amount of help and support, something we will be forever grateful for and thus we wanted to honour this historic street in our latest blend.

Jimmy Strength

A medium to dark roast coffee that creates a full bodied espresso with a smooth, creamy head with chocolate and citrus after-taste, which is 4/5 in strength. 

Despite only standing at 5 feet and 2 inches tall, James Stuart, also known as Jimmy Strength, was larger than life. Upon his arrival in Berwick-upon-Tweed (assumed to be in the 1790s) he caused quite a stir with his incredible strength, and soon the Berwick Advertiser was reporting on how he could lift a table with just his teeth and carry two men with just one hand! 
 
To this day, most town residents are familiar with the tale of Jimmy Strength and will proudly tell you about the time he carried his pony across the Old Bridge to avoid the extra half penny toll. In years gone by, there used to be a statue of the man himself located in various places around town however how what remains is stored in the Barracks Museum. The statue isn't on show anymore however if you keep your eyes peeled you may see a few other nods to his likeness around the museum.

Three Bridges BW Spot.jpg

Three Bridges

A light roast which is rated 3/5 for strength. It creates a smooth coffee with a mellow and sweet taste combined with hints of chocolate and citrus fruits.

Three Bridges is named in honour of Berwick-upon-Tweed’s trio of historic crossings: The Old Bridge, The Royal Tweed Bridge, and The Royal Border Bridge, which were built in 1611, 1925 and 1850 respectively to provide passage across the River Tweed. The name Three Bridges is reflected in the roast itself seeing as it is created using a trio of coffee beans.

Quarter Town BW Spot.jpg

Quarter Town

A dark roast that creates a full bodied espresso with a rich, creamy head  and a sweet yet tangy taste. Designed to create a smooth coffee when cut with milk with a 5/5 strength.

Quarter Town is named for the Scottish rebel, William Wallace, who led the Scots against the occupying armies of King Edward I in a bid to free Scotland from England's grasp and carve a better life for his people. The campaign lasted for eight years.  In 1308 Wallace was betrayed, captured and charged with treason (a charge he denied on the grounds that he had never sworn allegiance to the English king). 

 

Upon being found guilty, Wallace was sentenced to a grizzly death and was to be hung, drawn and quartered. After his execution, Wallace's head was placed on London Bridge and his four limbs were sent to Newcastle, Stirling, Perth and Berwick upon Tweed, making us one of the four quarter towns.

Coffee Harry BW Spot.jpg

Coffee Harry

A tangy, medium roast with hints of light citrus and tropical fruits, with a 4/5 strength.

Though we originally said all of our coffee blends would be named after Berwick-upon-Tweed based myths legends and facts, Coffee Harry is an exception. 
 
Having developed a passion for coffee as a young teen, by the time Northern Edge’s Dan left school his plans of creating his own coffee roastery were already well under way. This, combined with the sheer amount of coffee Dan drank, prompted his grandparents to nickname him Coffee Harry, and thus our third blend was named.

Nothern Breakfast BW Spot.jpg

Northern Breakfast

A full bodied, dark roast, rated 5/5 in strength, making it one of our strongest coffees to date.  A Brazilian bean with hints of sweet caramel and blackcurrant, this makes a delicious morning pick-me-up.

We'd love to say we got creative with this name but, sadly, no. We're in the North - about as far North in England as can be - and, being one of our strongest coffees, Northern Breakfast makes a great morning brew. Hopefully our creative juices will be flowing a little more after a cup of this beauty!

Brazilian Decaf BW Spot.jpg

Decaf

A medium to dark decaffeinated roast, rated 4/5 for strength, with tasting notes of red apple, brown sugar, and a sweet and chocolatey after taste. Skip the caffeine, not the flavour!

Despite being caffeine-free, our decaf coffee is bursting with flavour. Prior to roasting, the green beans have undergone a sparkling water decaffeination process which uses a mix of carbon dioxide and sparkling water to selectively remove the caffeine from the beans whilst ensuring the coffee retains its initial taste and aroma.
 
Unlike many decaffeination methods, this method is a gentle, natural, and organically certified and allows the coffee to retains its initial flavoursome characteristics.
