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!

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

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

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

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.

Fabrício’s Topazio

A viscous coffee with a 4/5 strength and tasting notes of hazelnut, brown sugar, apple, biscuit, and chocolate.

We know, we know, we’ve strayed a little with the naming of this one but we really wanted to get across just how personal a coffee this is to us and shed a little light on the people behind the beans. While all of our coffees have full traceability, this is the first time we’ve been able to work directly with a specific farm so it’s very exciting for us!

Fabrício Andrade is one of the chief farmers at the Fazenda Samambaia coffee farm in Brazil. He has been around coffee for the majority of his life and has spent many years cultivating his knowledge on how to ensure top quality and sustainability of the coffee plants, while also ensuring the welfare of the 51 permanent employees and families who make each harvest possible.

Everyone at the Samambaia coffee farm are driven by their passion for excellence and harvesting coffee cherries in a way that is beneficial for both the local community and the environment. Over the years the farm has won several international awards for their varieties of coffee, including Cup of Excellence. 

Here at Northern Edge, we put people at the heart of our business just a much as we do coffee, and we strive to find new ways to ensure our product doesn’t have a detrimental effect on our planet. When Fabrício approached us, we were delighted to discover how well his ethics lined up with our own and as such we are thrilled to be working directly with him. Through our working closely with Fabrício, the Fazenda Samambaia coffee farm is able to reap greater profits for their harvest which is fed straight back into their local community, and this personal relationship means we are able to provide you, our customer, with a personal insight into the journey from field to cup.

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!

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.
