Looking for Jamaican Blue Mountain® Coffee? We help you know if you’re getting true premium coffee.
Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is some of the best coffee in the world. This special coffee is grown in a very specific area of Jamaica. The zone features high-altitude volcanic loam between Kingston and Port Antonio. These are some of the highest mountains in the Caribbean. The climate of the region is cool and misty, with high rainfall and rich soil. These factors make the region ideal for growing coffee. Coffee grown in any other area of Jamaica is not the same quality. It’s not permitted to have the premium label of “Jamaican Blue Mountain®”.
What is Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee?
What Makes Jamaican Blue Mountain® Coffee Special?
The climate in the Blue Mountain region of Jamaica is perfect for coffee growing. With its combination of the perfect amount of sunshine and rain, the area couldn’t be better for beans. Because of this, many people consider Jamaican Blue Mountain® coffee to be the best on the planet.
What Is The Seal Of Certification?
Next time you’re in Cuppers, check out our barrel collection in the back on the office. Many of these are from our past Jamaican coffees. (We even have mini counter-top versions of the iconic barrels to store your own coffee in.)
4 Points Before Buying Jamaican Blue Mountain® Coffee
Jamaican Blue Mountain® Coffee comes with a premium price tag as a premium product. If you see coffee claiming to be Jamaican Blue Mountain® priced at $10/pound it’s likely not authentic.
The Jamaican Blue Mountain® Stamp isn’t required to be on a package if the coffee you are selling is a blend. Dishonest retailers can claim they are selling Jamaican coffee even if they’re not. Ask to see the seal and if they can’t show it to you, you aren’t getting the real deal.
