  1. The Dark Destroyer
    Out of stock
    Our most caffeine laden bean, roasted in the inferno of hell. It's a real wake me up call that will invigorate or derange you. Don't say we didn't warn you! Made with the same highest quality Robusta coffee as our Vietnam Dragon Balls but given a slightly darker roast. This enhances the bittersweet dark chocolate, malty character whilst losing some of the herbal and fruity notes.

    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.

    At Skybury Plantation, they grow Bourbon and Catuai varieties of Arabica Coffee. They have created a unique coffee wet processing which highlights the great taste of the coffee. Having one of the world's most sophisticated processing facilities, they can 'shape' the flavour of the coffee and achieve taste profile elements found in other processing styles, or create their own uniquely Australian style. With this 'Supreme' lot they have left a small amount of the mucilage on the beans by interrupting the fermentation process. Fermentation is followed by a high-speed wash which locks in flavour and allows the bean to absorb the remaining mucilage. When this coffee is roasted, the mucilage 'caramelises' and releases a sweet, chocolatey flavour. It is a light-bodied coffee and slightly lower in caffeine than average. Artisan roasted in our 2kg micro-coffee roaster.

    This is one of the rarest coffees in the world and is certified 100% wild Kopi Luwak coffee. Our supplier uses an accredited certification standard for wild, ethically-sourced Kopi Luwak in consultation with leading proponents of animal welfare, the World Animal Protection organization and food-certification experts. This rare coffee is selected and partially processed by a civet. In actual fact, the civet eats the ripe cherries from bushes growing wild in the rainforest where its digestive juices do the job of removing the fruit from the pulp and silver skin that surrounds the coffee bean. It has a full, heavy almost syrupy body, low acidity, with notes of chocolate, caramel, molasses, hazelnut, fig and dates. It is very, very smooth.

    Above the altar in Lincoln's magnificent gothic cathedral you’ll see a small stone figure. To this day, the stone imp stands frozen in place or at least until no-one is looking, when he often indulges his taste for a fine cup of coffee by visiting one of Lincoln's other magnificent Norman buildings, home to Imperial Teas. Not content with helping himself to a drink, he also likes to turn up the heat in our roasting room. Seeking out the strongest coffees he submits them to his own special inferno roast to produce a coffee that is devilishly good!

    If you give this coffee to someone without telling them it’s decaffeinated 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 dark chocolate, raisin, plum, liquorice, malt, black cherry and tobacco. Secondly, the method of decaffeination is designed to remove only the caffeine and not the precious flavour compounds that give coffee its character. The Mountain Water Process involves immersing the coffee beans in water to extract the 99.9% of the caffeine. No chemicals are used, and a filtering process allows the beans to maintain their characteristic flavour. The Mountain Water Decaf process uses clear, pure water from the glaciers of the Pico de Orizaba Mountains in Mexico, although often the coffee we choose is not in itself Mexican. This dark roast makes a phenomenally good espresso or base for a latté and cappuccino.
