Why Buy Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee?

The Magic of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee



A Rare Gem in the Coffee World

Jamaica may only rank #45 among coffee-producing countries, contributing a mere 0.01% to the world’s coffee supply, but what it lacks in volume, it more than makes up for in quality. The star of Jamaica's coffee scene is the Arabica Typica variety, renowned for its superior quality compared to other Arabica beans.

The Unique Terrain of the Blue Mountains

Jamaica Blue Mountain (JBM) coffee is exclusively grown in the high-altitude regions of the Blue Mountains, specifically in the parishes of Portland, St. Andrew, and St. Thomas, at elevations between 3,000 to 5,500 feet. The cool, misty, volcanic soil of this region, coupled with the harsh environment, creates the perfect conditions for producing a coffee that is truly unique. The beans take twice as long to ripen, a full 10 months, resulting in a flavor profile that is both rich and complex.


A Labor of Love

The process of producing JBM coffee is meticulous and labor-intensive. Every bean is hand-picked and carefully selected to ensure only the best make the cut. Each batch is inspected and certified by the Jamaica Agricultural Commodities Regulatory Authority (JACRA), which grants the coveted 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain seal to authentic products.

The Rarity and Value

Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is rare, with only 15% of Jamaica’s coffee production qualifying as JBM, and of that, 80% is exported to Japan. This scarcity, combined with the rigorous production process, contributes to its higher price. But once you savor its well-balanced flavor, excellent body, and medium acidity, you’ll understand why it’s worth every penny.


Experience the Excellence

Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is not just a beverage; it’s an experience. Its exceptional taste and distinctive character make it one of the most sought-after coffees in the world. So, when you wonder why it’s so expensive, ask yourself if it’s worth it. The answer, without a doubt, is “YES!”

Indulge in a coffee experience unlike any other and discover the true magic of Jamaica Blue Mountain.
