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. 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

  2. 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

  4. Kenya Lion King Kisii Coffee

    Kenya Lion King Kisii Coffee

Recently, coffee from this co-operative won the Specialty Coffee Association’s Blind Cupping Competition, scoring 98 out of 100. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Vietnam Dragon Balls Coffee

    Vietnam Dragon Balls Coffee

    This special, premium robusta type coffee has a super thick liquor, dark chocolate body and flavour plus more than average caffeine! It has almost twice as much caffeine as the Arabica variety. Enjoyable in its pure form and useful to add a kick to your favourite espresso blend. Whilst Robusta coffees are not generally renowned for their fine flavour this treasure from Vietnam is a noticeable exception. It is particularly delicious when made with condensed milk. Our customers have really taken to this coffee and it is now among our most popular. It certainly lives up to its name! Artisan roasted in our 2kg micro-roaster. Learn More

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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
