How It Tastes
Nutty, bright, and sweet with notes of milk chocolate and ripe melon; refined acidity, and a balancing, elegant vanilla finish.
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 this particular Jamaica Blue Mountain so exceptional. The Sharp family not only grows the coffee, but controls the whole process, allying 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.
