About this coffee

Coffee story

A Prize Worthy of its Name

To be granted the moniker "Jamaica Blue Mountain," a coffee must be grown in a particular region of the Blue Mountains, at a certain altitude, and certified by the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica. Yet even with such stringent requirements, only a few estates in this small district still produce the old-style quality and mild, aromatic flavor that made the place so famous. Sherwood Forest Estate is one of them, an old-world mountain treasure that dates back to 1803 in its origins and methods. In fact, we believe it's the only farm still worthy of the name.

The unique regional conditions—rich soil, unexpected tropical altitude and cool mists—together with meticulous processing are what make this particular Jamaica Blue Mountain so exceptional. The Sherwood estate not only grows the coffee, but controls the whole process, applying careful milling, drying and hand sorting under exacting quality-controlled 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 is fabulous coffee but I didn't get this notice until 3 am on 10/21 - apparently too late to order. I would to be able to order a pound for the holidays!

I remember back in the early 80's when Peet's in Berkeley (Walnut Square) was serving Blue Mountain on Thanksgiving Day as a thank you to all it's loyal customers. It was 35cents a cup if you brought your own cup in. I lost count at about 10 cups :)

Purchased a half pound this year. Purchased a couple of years ago and it was very, very good. This year was not nearly as good, but it appears that for some reason the coffee crops 2 years ago were pretty exceptional as the Ethiopian Super Natural that year was really excellent. This year it was only offered in a package with another coffee that I did not want.

This is probably the best coffee I've tasted. I'm glad we spent the $ and experienced it. But, for $90 a pound, it was likely the last time. We are on periodic shipment with Italian Roast and Sumatra, and plan to continue.

The Most Exotic, Erotic coffee ever! I have ordered this constantly and it never disappoints. Wish I could get it all year!
