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. 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

As a result of this, the law strictly prohibits the importation or use of fertilizer, herbicides, pesticides or any other chemicals.

  3. 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

  6. Indian Monsoon Malabar Coffee

    Indian Monsoon Malabar Coffee

    The famed ‘monsooned Malabar’ - is made by a process unique to India, and gives a distinctive, potent cup. It dates back to coffee farming under British colonial rule when during the several months that it took to ship green coffee from India to Europe, the humidity and sea winds caused the beans to swell and age. As transport improved the beans suffered less from the elements en route, so coffee-drinkers noticed that the coffee was losing its usual character and distinctive, bold flavour. To create a ‘monsooned’ crop, natural sun-dried green coffee is stored in open-sided warehouses on the coast, which allows moist tropical air from the monsoon winds to blow through the storage area. Over 2 to 3 months, the beans absorb moisture, lose most of their natural acidity and swell to around double their original size, becoming brittle and pale. The process starts when the monsoons begin. Tasting notes include spicy, earthy, smoky, tobacco, fig and plum. It is grown in Karnataka, the Western Ghats of South India. It is grown on the Kents, S.795, Catimor and Selection 9 varietals of Arabica coffee plant. Learn More

  7. Nero King of Espresso Coffee

    Nero King of Espresso Coffee

    Every company protects the recipe for their own special blend of beans believing it to be the perfect combination to make the ultimate ‘Espresso’ coffee. We are no different! This blend was created by us in 1996 when the received wisdom was that blends should be made only of coffee beans from Brazil and perhaps some ‘Robusta’. We started to experiment with some of the phenomenal Grand Cru coffees we were roasting, and enjoying in cafétieres and filter equipment, in an espresso machine. After much experimentation, we settled on what we still believe holds up as a truly Grand Cru espresso, and we named it Nero. We love the sweet body, blackberry, chocolate, walnut, black treacle and hazelnut character of this speciality. It is the go-to blend for our customers and Baristas alike when making an espresso. It's also delicious made in any other form of equipment! Learn More
