COFFEE

Coffee, buy coffee online, Lincoln, UK | Imperial Teas

In preparing our range of coffees we have selected only the cream of the crop from each country. They are chosen for their quality and unique characteristics, which are linked directly to their growing conditions and equally importantly the way they are farmed.
Special thanks should go to these farmers whose artistry in their field has enabled us to enjoy these true coffee delights. Like their wine producing counterparts, creating the equivalent of a 'Grand Cru' is a painstaking achievement of which they are justifiably proud, especially in a market where general standards of quality are declining due to unsustainable low prices.
We roast all our coffee in the shop in our small batch roaster, so we can give careful attention to each varieties' optimum roast. This enables us to bring out the unique characteristics that our coffees are prized for. It also means you get to try them truly fresh.
We offer the following flavour notes as a guide but the best way to find out what they are like is to try them! We feel the best way to appreciate most of our coffees is in a cafetiere or filter but we have also stated those coffees suitable for making espresso or cappuccino.
We sell as little as 100g, which can be ground to suit your requirements. For fresher coffee still, invest in a good grinder, this makes even more difference. As always for any further advice or to order please ring us on 01522 560008. Have fun!

  1. Galapagos Cristobal Island Coffee

    Galapagos Cristobal Island Coffee

    The San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos Archipelago of Ecuador produces an exotic, high-quality organic coffee bean. In the cup, its unusual origin is more than matched by its sweet flavour, with its intense, sweet aroma, nice round body, well balanced, orange acidity, delicate cup, which holds hints of caramel and chocolate.The coffee is grown in an ecological sanctuary and UNESCO "Patrimony and Humanity" site as a sustainable resource of the island's people. As a result of this, the law strictly prohibits the importation or use of fertilizer, herbicides, pesticides or any other chemicals. The coffee is cultivated on the volcanic mountains of the island, where the trees receive a perfect balance of sunlight, rain and altitude. Learn More

  2. Brazilian Ipanema Espirito de Sol Coffee

    Brazilian Ipanema Espirito de Sol Coffee

    This is a coffee of great complexity, with cupping notes observed by SCAA cuppers that included: great body, zest, almond, walnut, honey, caramel, sweet citrus, star fruit, floral aromas and chocolate. We buy these small 'lots' from an estate that engages in practices that exemplifies all that is meant by the term speciality coffee. This current batch is made on the Fazenda Rio Verde farm on the Ipanema estate. This unique lot is processed using the 'natural' sun-dried method, although they also produce fine coffee by the 'wet' method too. Sun drying ensures the sweetest flavours. Roasted to perfection for a filter or cafetiere it also offers a smooth espresso. It can be blended with our 'espresso' roast version of this coffee 'Espresso de Sol' to add nuance and for personalising your perfect espresso blend. One thing very few people argue with is that you have the best coffee for making espresso in the world however you blend it. Artisan roasted in our 2kg micro-coffee roaster. The farm is situated in the Mantiqueira Mountains. It is translated as the Crying Mountains. Learn More

  3. 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.

  4. Natural Mountain Water Decaf Coffee Light

    Natural Mountain Water Decaf Coffee Light

    If you give this coffee to someone without telling them it’s decaffeinated-coffee you will always be greeted with the same look of astonishment when they find out! Firstly because we apply the same criteria for excellence to the coffee we choose to decaffeinate as we do to all of our Grand Cru coffees. Expect flavours of chocolate, biscuit, peach, apricots, lemon, butter, vanilla, mandarin, citrus, red apple, pear and caramel. Secondly, the method of decaffeination is designed to remove only the caffeine and not the precious flavour compounds that give coffee its character. The natural Mountain Water Process method uses clear, pure water from the glaciers of the Pico de Orizaba Mountain to float the coffee oils and caffeine in a solution. Learn More

  5. Brazilian Jacu Bird Coffee

    Brazilian Jacu Bird Coffee

    One of the rarest coffees in the world, Jacu gets its name from the native South American bird. The Jacu have an excellent eye for selecting the ripest berries to consume, passing over those considered perfectly ripe by the human eye! Their herbivore diet and fast digestion help to further develop the exquisite flavour that bio-dynamically farmed Camocin estate coffees are already renowned for. The aroma has a nutty sweetness with a flavour of molasses, notes of black pepper, macadamia and nuances of sweet aniseed. Henrique Sloper, third-generation owner and farmer is understandably proud of this fruitful interaction between wildlife and farming and says “rather than thinking of the Jacu as a pest, eating our finest coffee cherries, we saw the opportunity to employ the Jacu as one of our most effective coffee pickers.” Learn More

  6. Panama Geisha Esmerelda Coffee

    Panama Geisha Esmerelda Coffee

    La Esmerelda farm on the slopes of Volcan Baru in Panama produces what is currently the most sought-after coffee in the world. Grown on a rare varietal known as Geisha, it has come to represent the pinnacle of coffee flavour. We are pleased to have purchased a micro-lot from the Jaramillo section of the farm. It is also one of the most expensive coffees in the world, a value based on its unique character and low yield. The air in Jaramillo is a high up in the mountains kind of wet and cold, surprisingly perfect for making the pronounced bergamot and jasmine aromatics of the Geisha variety sing. Notes of berry, citrus, mango, papaya, peach, pineapple, guava, honey, raspberry, apricot and mandarin are also described. The farm jumps up from rolling hills on its lower part to steep 40 degree inclines higher up, making harvesting a manual and challenging affair. It is these high altitudes that really make the Geisha’s bright, floral aromatics express themselves. With cooler temperatures and massive shade trees that have been standing for ages, it turns out that Jaramillo is the perfect place for this variety to have landed. To this day many of the top performing micro lots of Geisha coffee come from little patches on the slopes of Jaramillo. The Geisha plant has elegant, elongated leaves, cherries and beans making them hard to mistake. Learn More

  7. Guatemalan Quetzal Antigua Los Volcanes

    Guatemalan Quetzal Antigua Los Volcanes

    The genuine Antigua Los Volcanes brand has been the standard of CAMEC coffee quality since its inception in 1952. Tasting notes from the Cup of Excellence competition include berry, tangerine, caramel, sweet spices, dark chocolate, lime, kiwi, butter, honey, caramelized sugar, plum, pineapple, melon, blackberry, cherry, and orange. We love its almost Nutella like quality and the hints of lemony, freshly milled pepper. The flavour is like chocolate, caramel and orange with a fig-like sweetness. The estate is in a micro-climate area and situated at nearly 6,000 feet. Learn More

Some notes on the flavours when medium roasted included: Vibrant grape acidity, sugar cane sweetness, tropical fruit, pineapple, blackcurrant, mandarin, orange, nectarine, apricot, stone fruit, brown sugar, rhubarb, pink grapefruit, rose florals, lime, milk chocolate, nectarine, black tea, honey and fresh cherry.

  9. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Sesota Coffee

    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Sesota Coffee

    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffees are famed for their beautiful fragrance. The coffee taster’s lexicon is used to it’s full in striving to describe some of the aromatics that are glimpsed in the coffee’s aroma, both roasted and brewed. One of perhaps the most unusual is that of black tea. Others include: tangerine, stone fruit, red currant, lime, raspberry lemonade, floral, lemon, sweet, lavender, jasmine, blueberry, blackberry, bergamot, apricot, almond, wildflowers. It might be a surprise to find that it still smells and tastes of coffee! 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.
