Central Bean Brews up Local Partnership

3 May 2022

Sanderson Arcade’s popular coffee destination, Central Bean has entered into a new supplier partnership with local Morpeth business Northside Coffee Roasters.

The independent coffee roaster, which hand roasts all of its beans in Morpeth, will now be fully supplying the coffee shop after the company’s strong environmental message attracted the attention of the Central Bean management team.

Jake Whiteley, Manager at Central Bean, said: “Northside not only provides amazing coffee from farms all over the world, they also have such a great environmental message that we are incredibly supportive of here at Central Bean. 

“By having them as our core supplier, not only are we supporting a local Morpeth business, but we are also helping Northside in their crucial environmental campaign to plant more trees on coffee farms and prevent deforestation.”  

Northside’s coffee blends are Rainforest Alliance Certified and work to plant more trees from where the coffee is grown. The coffee business also strives to ​​support various sustainability and climate change projects whilst collecting its beans from award winning farms in Brazil, Columbia and Costa Rica. 

Adam Drozdowicz, Owner of Northside Coffee Roasters, said: “We love providing our coffee beans to local cafes like Central Bean. Morpeth has such a great community and we’re delighted to be growing in partnership with another local business within the area who share our environmental values.

“We hope the regulars enjoy the new taste of Northside at Central Bean.”

Central Bean has been based at Sanderson Arcade for over 10 years now and most recently introduced a chain of new upgrades to its outdoor seating area, also installing heaters to accommodate for the colder weather.

Lottie Thompson, Centre Manager at Sanderson Arcade, said: “Central Bean is a business that is constantly thriving and improving its customer offering. After customer feedback dictated the need of a heated outdoor seating, Central Bean instantly answered the call and now has a beautiful outdoor heated area in the centre of the Arcade for all to enjoy.

“The company’s latest partnership with local roaster Northside, is yet another example of its commitment to Morpeth and the surrounding community and we can’t wait to try out the shop’s new blend.”
