These are almost ideal growing conditions for highland Arabica coffee. Due to the altitude of above 700 meters, the coffee plants grow considerably slower and need approximately 10 months instead of the usual 6-8 month for the beans to ripen. The unique raw coffee can be exported in the typical wooden barrels only after certification.
Character and Taste:
Up to 90% of yearly production is exported to Japan. There it is not unusual to pay more than 10 dollars for a cup of this famous cult drink. It is common to offer Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee to Japanese coffee lovers as a gift on New Year´s Day. This coffee speciality is an absolute experience. It has a full, slightly sweet aroma paired with a mild acidity and an intense, clear nutty taste. And the low caffeine content – only 0,7% – nothing compares!
