This wonderful month of January, our featured coffee is Jamaica Blue Mountain.
Now this isn’t just any ordinary coffee bean. Blue Mountain Coffee has a full flavored, balanced, prominent fruit flavors, acidity and provides all the satisfaction one could want with a strong and intense aroma. It has a very clean taste, with a noticeable sweetness. It is grown in the Blue Mountains in Jamaica, hence the name, and has a reputation that has made it one of the most expensive and sought-after coffees in the world.
The climate where the beans are grown is cool and misty with high rainfall. The soil is rich, with excellent drainage. This combination of climate and soil is considered ideal for coffee.
The coffee has blue-green color, good acidity, intense aroma, fairly good body, clean. The beans are broken up into these three different categories:
