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.

I can remember buying Blue Mountain back in the early 70's when I was paying $19.95 a pound I believe it was. Used to go to a little coffee shop on Oahu in Hawaii. Mr. Phillips coffee and teas. He had a place on Oahu and his ex wife ran the Mill Valley California store. He always had a sample pot brewing of something and poured out little shot glasses. Back then I was told by "Maxwell House Drinkers" that I was crazy for paying that kind of money for coffee beans. What a treat to see that you have this. I will be ordering my 1/2 pound and sitting backing with that first cup with my eyes closed. Thinking about those days in the past .. drinking shots of coffee with Mr. Phillips and hearing his stories about the old days in Hawaii.

I remember when Peet's added this to their menu around 1984. At $30/lb it was by far the most expensive coffee on the menu. It was also one of the best. At the time, Peet's had just opened up their Piedmont Ave store in Oakland, which was their third store. With a small number of stores, it was possible to stock this coffee throughout their entire "chain." With as many stores as they have now, it's impossible to have it on the regular menu.

I don't think I can say it's my all time favorite coffee, but it's definitely up there at the top. Back then, I felt that the Yemen Mocca (now called Arabian Mocha Sanani) was just as satisfying at $13/lb (expensive!) although it was a very different coffee from JBM. If you haven't tried JBM, it's well worth getting while it's available. I haven't seen it in Peet's stores for at least 25 years, so I'll get more while I can.
