Darker Roasted Coffee

Darker roasted coffee, buy coffee online, coffee beans | Imperial Teas

A selection of estate coffees given a darker roast to release more sugars and slightly neutralise the acidity naturally found in coffee. Darker roasts are most suitable, though not exclusively, for espresso based coffees and for those who like to drink their coffee without milk or cream.

  1. Rwanda Gorilla Mountain Coffee

    Rwanda Gorilla Mountain Coffee

    As with other fine African coffees, the coffee taster’s lexicon is put to good use in describing the character. Notes of blackberry, baking spices, caramel, cranberry, raisins, berries, citrus, cream, lemon, strawberry, grapefruit, floral, cherry, vanilla, caramel, tangy orange, berry jam, lavender, honey, sweet black cherry and figs are described. Rwandan coffee is not mass produced as we know it in the west. It is known as the land of a thousand hills. Many farmers grow their produce on hillsides and within lush, untamed valleys on very smallholdings. Learn More

  2. Nicaraguan Black Bull Reserva Coffee

    Nicaraguan Black Bull Reserva Coffee

    Hacienda Sajonia produces very high-quality coffee generally but in our search for coffee perfection, we like to go one step further. To this end, the estate produces a small amount of their absolute best beans called Sajonia Reserva Familia. We think it yields one of the best darkly roasted coffees in the world. Darkly roasted coffees tend to trade the nuances of aroma for the big, bold character and the bittersweet, syrupy cup demanded by those who love very intense coffee. The Reserva offers something more though, with tones of rich, milk chocolate, hazelnut, caramel, Brazil nut, orange zest and molasses. Hacienda Sajonia is located in the beautiful El Diablo nature reserve high up in the relatively cool, cloud forest-clad mountains between Matagalpa and Jinotega in northern Nicaragua, placing it right in the middle of Nicaragua’s premier coffee growing region. The estate covers an area of 1,000 acres, of which over half is primaeval rainforest, home to an incredible array of flora and fauna. Learn More

  3. Kenya Black Lion Coffee

    Kenya Black Lion Coffee

    No collection of coffee would be complete without a prizewinning offering from Kenya. It delivers value for money for the aroma alone! Given a dark roast, expect the flavours to suggest treacle toffee, molasses, black cherry, caramel, red wine, plum, dark chocolate, muscovado sugar and dried apricot. Our Kenya coffee is grown by the smallholder farmers of the Bisembe co-operative in Kisii County, a mountainous region of western Kenya famed for evergreen farms. Recently, coffee from this co-operative won the Specialty Coffee Association’s Blind Cupping Competition, scoring 98 out of 100. Learn More

  4. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Sesota Dark Coffee

    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Sesota Dark Coffee

    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffees are famed for their beautiful fragrance. When darkly roasted of course some of these complexities are lost yet it still retains its distinctive character. The citrus acidity changes to a dark fruit sweetness, hints of blackcurrant, spice, nutmeg, bonfire toffee and a sugar cane aftertaste make it one of the most refined of darkly roasted coffees. The coffee grown in this lush, green, mountainous area at altitudes up to 8,000 feet is referred to as ‘garden coffee’ due to most of it being grown on small-holdings of less than 1 hectare producing something up to 5 sacks of coffee beans.

It has a syrupy richness, exquisite flavour and the native volcanic soil gives it a rich, silky character. It is, deservedly, among the most famous coffees in the world. Learn More

  7. Peru Treasure of the Andes Coffee

    Peru Treasure of the Andes Coffee

    When sourcing coffee from Peru we look for coffee that can deliver a complex array of flavours. Typically we would hope to find notes of cream, caramel, lemon zest, marzipan, dark chocolate, pineapple, lemon, lime, pomegranate, bergamot, nutmeg, blackcurrant, raspberry, cherry, cane sugar and cocoa. We buy from different producers in Peru depending on quality and availability. They are all from worker’s co-operatives and where organic, sustainable farming methods are used. In fact, that is quite easy as I am yet to see an offer of coffee from Peru that is not produced in this way. Recently we have been supporting the Cafe Femenino project. Learn More
