Jamaica Blue Mountain: Rare and Legendary
Limited Release | Dark Roast
THE LEGEND RETURNS
Jamaica Blue Mountain is back! It only takes a sip to taste why this rare, old-world coffee lives up to its legendary expectations. It's elegant and aromatic, with refined acidity and ornately layered sweetness.
Old-style flavor produced the old-world way
For a coffee to be certified as a true “Jamaica Blue Mountain” coffee, it must be grown in the Blue Mountain region, at a certain altitude, in accordance with highly stringent requirements. As a result, only a few estates in the small district still produce the quality and fine aromatic flavor that made this place so famous. Our source is one of these—an old-world mountain treasure that prides itself on both its origin and methods.
The unique regional conditions—rich soil, unexpected tropical altitude, and cool mists—together with meticulous processing, are what make our Jamaica Blue Mountain so exceptional. The Sharp family who grow this coffee control the whole process. They ally careful milling, drying, and hand-sorting under exacting quality conditions. Which means every bean is treated as a prize from the moment it is picked to the moment it is packed in wooden barrels and air-shipped to us here in California.
Sometimes it pays to do things the old-fashioned way
It only takes a sip to know that this is one of those times. This dark roast coffee is best brewed drip or in a press pot to bring out its qualities: nutty, bright, and sweet with notes of milk chocolate and ripe melon, refined acidity, and a balancing, elegant vanilla finish.
We only roast this rare, esteemed coffee once a year, and then the long wait until it's back. We think that's pretty special, and we hope that each cup you enjoy creates an equally special moment.
