Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is the crème de la crème of coffee. Its taste is sensational, awakening the senses to one of the most luxurious experiences coffee has to offer.
The beans are grown only in a very small area of the Blue Mountains in Jamaica, where perfect conditions nurture their exquisite taste. It is here, perched up high, fed by the nitrate-rich soil and shaded from the burning tropical sun by the shifting cloud, that the beans develop their amazing flavour. Strictly regulated to guarantee their superb quality, the beans are lightly roasted to preserve their complex layered taste of herbs and spices. The result is a luxuriously smooth coffee that is beautifully mild and without any hint of bitterness.
Jamaican Blue Mountain is a coffee to take your time over, to enjoy, like a good wine or gourmet food, when you can really appreciate its true depth and quality. Rare, sought-after and unbelievably good, Blue Mountain is truly the king of coffees.
