Jamaica doesn’t produce much coffee but they do produce one of the most coveted beans in the world: Jamaican Blue Mountain.
Grown in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica at 7,500 feet above sea level, this high-quality bean comes from the Caribbean’s tallest mountain range with a price tag to match. In recognition of how special this bean is, the Coffee Industry Regulation Act gives true Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee a globally-recognized certification to prevent forgeries.
Nearly 80% of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is exported to Japan with the rest of the world fighting over the remaining 20%. With low annual yields due to the region’s small size, demand is far higher than the supply.
Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is mild and smooth yet exceptionally vibrant with low bitterness and overpoweringly sweet and floral aromas.
