Coffee lovers might wonder why Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee seems expensive. Well Blue Mountain is in heavy demand in places like Japan where roughly 75 per cent of the total crop gets exported annually. Additionally, the Blue Mountain growing region is entirely on steep slopes. That limits cultivation in an is already limited zone.Its 8 hours of daily mist and fog creates a natural green-house effect which slow ripens the beans. Comparatively High Mountain is grown on flat lands or lowlands which enables better economies of scale. But also the coffee isn't in heavy demand in Japan like the JBM. Plantation Blue is truly a Jamaica Blue Mountain® coffee. JBM coffee is sought the world over for its ability to mix two seemingly opposing tastes--that of a fully chocolate without bitterness.
Your coffee will come directly bagged from the factory with a near 12 months shelf life. The coffee is JBM number 1 beans and as such will contain the EXPORT GRADE SEAL.This coffee is owned by the Fletcher family which is one of less than one dozen approved roasters in the island. Jamaica Blue Mountain® Coffee is the registered trade description for the coffee grown in the deep rural Blue Mountains of Jamaica. The Blue Mountains of Jamaica are named for the blue mists that continually shroud them. The mountain ranges across the eastern section of Jamaica, 28 miles long and 12 miles wide. The Blue Mountains are some of the highest mountains in the Caribbean, rising to 7,420 feet. Covered with rich soil with excellent drainage, the blue mountain region is perfect for growing coffee.
Blue Mountain® coffee goes through several processes. After it is reaped, the coffee is pulped and washed and then dried, cured, hulled and graded by size and separated by density.
