About us

about Amid Giants & Idols

A new era at Lyme's specialty coffee house.

In July 2016, Steve and Elaine took over the much loved coffee house. As avid coffee lovers, both were eager to embrace the culture and lifestyle that is specialist coffee. Keen to offer a regular variety of single origin coffees, they work alongside top quality local roasteries, including Exeter’s Crankhouse & Somerset’s Brazier Coffee, which both supply guest beans. Excellent fine loose leaf teas are sourced from Comins Teas, an independent Fine Tea Merchant, based in Dorset.

With the aim to advise and inspire customers, Steve and Elaine enjoy introducing curious customers to a variety of locally roasted beans and regularly hold meet-the-roaster evenings.
