“Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee!!” 

Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee or Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is a classification of coffee grown in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. The best lots of Blue Mountain coffee are noted for their mild flavour and lack of bitterness. Over the past few decades, this coffee has developed a reputation that has made it one of the most expensive and sought-after coffees in the world. Over 80% of all Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is exported to Japan.[1] In addition to its use for brewed coffee, the beans are the flavor base of Tia Maria coffee liqueur.

Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is a globally protected certification mark, meaning only coffee certified by the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica can be labeled as such. It comes from a recognised growing region in the Blue Mountain region of Jamaica, and its cultivation is monitored by the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica.

The Blue Mountains are generally located between Kingston to the south and Port Antonio to the north. Rising to 2,256 metres (7,402 ft), they are some of the highest mountains in the Caribbean. The climate of the region is cool and misty with high rainfall. The soil is rich, with excellent drainage. This combination of climate and soil is considered ideal for coffee.

    I bought a two pound bag once..in Jamaica. It did not last long, sadly. Very smooth. I am with you, a good dark roast is good and my favorite as well.

    You may be a true coffee purist, and may think I am a Neanderthal LOL, but for Christmas I got a Ninja coffee Bar…and I really like it. It seems very versatile.

    Bet you it is versatile. Hope it isn’t difficult to clean. But, it sounds great. For me, an old-fashion percolator pot is best.:-). Thanks for the coffee share Wally.

    Not the biggest coffee lover but I don’t hesitate to drink a cup from my home country if needed :) Didn’t realize that much of it was exported to one place though, wow. As we say here in Jamaica, “wi likkle but wi tallawah!”
