Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is one of the most sought after coffees in the world. This "Java of Kings" has been satisfying coffee connoisseurs around the globe for more than two centuries and is famous for its exquisite flavor, good acidity, a clean refined taste, unusual sweetness, excellent body and intense bold aroma.

This extraordinary coffee is grown in the majestic Blue Mountain range in Jamaica reaching approximately 7,402 feet at the highest peak, thus making it is one of the highest grown coffees in the world . An incredible mix of rich soil, cool and misty conditions, high rainfall and good soil drainage combined with expert care and stringent quality control grows the smoothest, richest and best Java in the world.

Coffee found its way to Jamaica in 1728 when Sir Nicholas Lawes, Governer of Jamaica, imported Arabica seedlings from the Island of Martinique. The new home was a natural and coffee production expanded. Government support and instruction in the art of cultivation allowed the industry to develop in reputation and quality.

The Jamaica Coffee Industry Board was established in 1950 to maintain and standardize the quality and consistency of Jamaican coffee in a world class manner. Jamaican coffee is hand picked and supervised at every stage of pulping, drying, hulling, sorting and grading. Every export shipment is "cup quality" tested by certified tasters on the Coffee Industry Board staff.

The surge in demand for this coffee has resulted in some coffee purveyors selling other coffees under the Jamaica Blue Mountain label. As a result, all shipments of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee must be approved and certified by the only certifying agency, the Jamaica Coffee Industry Board.

Jamaica Blue Mountain is exported in roasted and green form. The large bluish green beans are shipped in the signature 154 lb. wooden barrels with certification and are marked with the source. Roasted coffee is available in a variety of packaging and is always accompanied by a Coffee Industry Board certificate of authenticity.
