ORIGINS AND REGIONS

JAMAICA BLUE

This year we introduce a very special coffee indeed, our Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. Certified with our security hologram seal and carefully hand packed, each bag is individually numbered and signed by Carlos Zeidan.

In the early 1700's King Louis XV shipped three coffee plants from France to the island of Martinique. Two of these plants did not survive; but one did, and cuttings from this plant were then brought to Jamaica 5 years later. These cuttings were planted in the rich Blue Mountain soil and thrived. The rest, as they say, is history.

The Jamaica Blue Mountains are located on the Eastern end of Jamaica, exposing them to the moisture laden North East Trade Winds. These hit the coast and rise up into the mountains, generating significant cloud cover and mist as they hit the cooler air of the higher elevations. The reduced sunlight due to the cloud cover slows down the development of the coffee cherry. The long maturation has a very positive effect on the aroma and taste of the coffee produced from these trees.

In the world of wine, territory rules. But in the world of coffee, few coffee drinkers have tasted any estate or single origin coffee. The vast majority of coffee consumed is blended from commodity grade coffee. A lucky few have tried Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and know that the coffee’s origin makes a difference.

These coffees are strictly limited in quantities.
