    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.

  3. Colombia La Esperanza Competition Winning Coffee
    Out of stock
    This limited edition coffee is a competition winner, and was scored a massive 89 by the independent coffee graders of the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America), making it amongst a handful of coffees worldwide with such a high score. Flavour and aromatics described by the SCAA were red wine, passion fruit, vanilla and chocolate. The reason for the complexity and quality of this coffee is to do with it being made by a very labour intensive process, practised in just a few farms in the world, called anaerobic natural. Once set in special tanks, the lid is sealed so it is devoid of oxygen and left for 168 hours. After fermentation, the coffee cherries are left 48 hours for dehydration and then pass to solar dryers for 6 – 7 days depending on the weather until the dry cherries reach a moisture level of 11 to 12%. This captures all the potential flavours in the coffee and unsurpassed sweetness.

    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.

    Hawaiian coffee can only be called Pure Kona if it is grown on island's Gold Coast in Hawaii. Kona Gold is grown at high altitudes on the mountainous slopes of active volcanoes. The island's rich, volcanic soil lends an unmistakable character to what is regarded as the most beautiful coffee bean in the world. Although growing at a lower altitude than the world's other great coffees, the clouds that appear like clockwork each afternoon, plentiful rain, good shelter and the mineral-rich soil, more than compensate for this. What gives the coffee grown on this small estate the edge is that it is so carefully selected that workers can only harvest around twenty pounds of beans on a good day. This adds more expense to already high American labour prices but along with the equally impeccable processing, guarantees a smooth, rich body, sweet flavour with notes of tropical fruit and chocolate.

    This coffee was scored a massive 89 by the independent coffee graders of the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America), making it amongst a handful of coffees worldwide with such a high score. Flavour and aromatics described by the SCAA were berry, ripe plum and chocolate. Processed using the natural dried method. This was a competition winner in the annual competition to find the Gems of Araku. Coffee was introduced to Araku in the early 1900’s from neighbouring Pamuleru Valley, and in 2007, Small and Marginal Tribal Farmers Mutually Aided Cooperative Society (SAMTFMACS), a coffee farmer cooperative formed with assistance from The Naandi Foundation, was formed to push the coffee production there even further. It is a tribute to the work there that the competition is producing some of the best coffee in the world, scoring very high on the SCAA marking system.

    The world's most exclusive coffee only more so! Our offering, from the highest and therefore finest plantation, Gold Cup estate, is grown and milled on site, unlike most other Blue Mountain which is blended in the Mavis bank mill. All Blue Mountain is special but this is a cut above the rest. This specific appellation and processing allow us to appreciate the original, superior quality and character of Blue Mountain coffee. It has been called a "connoisseur's delight" yielding a full flavour. It has balance, with floral, chocolate, and fruit tones. What distinguishes Blue Mountain from other coffee is a notable lack of bitterness, with a mild, yet very complex, almost creamy flavour and silky body, with an intense aroma. Artisan roasted in our 2kg micro-roaster.

    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!

    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.

    Currently the most expensive coffee in the world but it's not only the supply and logistical issues that raise the price of this special coffee. Its unique flavour offers up mocha, ripe berries, chocolate and red wine.

    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.

    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.

Although often firstly bought for its name, it becomes the once bitten forever smitten favourite of those that drink it!
