About Us

Central Coffee Company is a family owned and operated coffee shop inCharlotte, NC. We opened our first shop in Plaza Midwood in May of 2009 and expanded to the South End area with our second shop in October of 2016.

We have been very fortunate to become a part of both the Plaza Midwood/Elizabeth communities and the South End community. Our main goal is to serve fantastic coffee and food products, but we also strive to create an inclusive community atmosphere at both locations. We believe that community is so important. Our staff and customers have become not just our community but our family and friends.

We serve coffee roasted by Joe Van Gogh Coffee Roasters, located in Hillsborough, NC, and have had an amazing relationship with them for over 8 years.

Joe Van Gogh has put so much emphasis on social, economic, and environmentally responsible ways of producing their roasted coffees. Our owners have been to Nicaragua with the company to develop their knowledge of the coffee industry and to learn where the beans come from and to appreciate the process from seed to plant to flower to tree to roasted coffee.

Central Coffee has had wonderful collaborations with several of the local breweries here in Charlotte. You may have tasted our coffee in a beer by Heist Brewery, Birdsong Brewing, Resident Culture Brewing Company, Legion Brewing, or Wooden Robot. We enjoy working with other local companies and making something truly unique.
