World-famous for centuries among connoisseurs for its intense flavors and and low bitterness, this premium coffee will surely become a firm favorite. In fact, Hayman's of London listed it as no. 2 in the world, with only the Hawaii Kona Coffee bean beating it!
Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee tastes like no other coffee in the world because it isn’t like any other coffee in the world.
Only 15% of Jamaica coffee comes from the Blue Mountains, and 100% of our coffee is reaped exclusively from this region. Our Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is 100% authentic.
Put simply, genuine Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is scarce. And, to make life tougher for those of us trying to find the coffee, 80% of the crop goes to Japan each year.
Our Blue Mountain Coffee beans are medium roasted to let the natural taste shine through.
100% Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee beans are grown in a unique micro-climate at elevations of up to 5500 ft on the forested slopes of the misty Blue Mountains in Jamaica.
It’s fundamentally impossible to synthetically replicate the kinds of growing conditions where Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee thrives, meaning that while some may try to imitate its properties, there’s nothing quite like the real deal. Once again, this results in an extremely small amount of the stuff making its way out of Jamaica every year.
Arabica Coffee was introduced to Jamaica in 1728 by the Governor, Sir Nicholas Lawes. Plants came from Hispaniola, now Haiti. The naturally cool, moist conditions proved to be exceedingly favorable and the coffee thrived, producing beans of the highest quality and flavor.

It’s estimated that over 2.25 billion cups of coffee are drunk around the world every single day.
The quality varies, as personal tastes do, from pretty dreadful, to exquisite, and while you might think that you’ve hit the big time when you’re sitting around drinking your Nespresso or Lavazza espresso, consider Jamaica Blue Mountain!
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, you’ll understand why we’re asking if it really is the best in the world, almost regardless of personal taste. This smooth, full-bodied coffee tastes as close as it gets to what you always thought coffee should taste like, without the bitterness. Maybe you’ve never tried it, but you’re curious because you’ve heard so much about it, and you’re thinking of buying some.
Google ‘Jamaica Blue Mountain’ and before the actual Blue Mountains, you’ll get hits on Blue Mountain Coffee.
This exceedingly high-quality coffee can only be grown on the steep slopes of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, and even then, it is required to go through one of the most rigorous quality assurance and tasting processes of any beverage on the planet. Even if you’re lucky enough to be a grower of Blue Mountain coffee, it doesn’t guarantee you export. If your batch doesn’t meet the strict standards of the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica, you’re not going anywhere.
In addition to being remarkably free of any of the bitterness which plagues even the high-end coffees, Blue Mountain is layered with subtle, complex flavors, all wrapped around a lightly sweet, mild base.
Incredibly clean and vibrant, Jamaica Blue has an almost floral taste, with none of the smelly breath mouthfeel of other coffees. Hints of chocolate, herbs and nuts stand out easily, and even the most uneducated of coffee drinkers could notice the difference.
There are a couple of reasons why Blue Mountain tastes so good. The first is that it’s grown in very small batches of just a few trees, which are planted and harvested by hand. This gives the trees plenty of space to produce the best possible beans, allowing the flavors to really shine.
The second reason is the location of the trees, between 3,000 and 4,000 feet up the steep sides of the Blue Mountains. The air here is warm, but the almost constant subtropical cloud cover dissipates the heat, meaning the beans on the trees grow more slowly. This gives them time to develop all of that full flavor, without the bitterness.
Some of that relates to the fact that production of Blue Mountain is so small. Anything small-batch is going to cost more than something made on a larger scale. Then there’s the cost of harvest and production. Pickers have to traverse dangerous, often slippery mountain slopes to retrieve the beans, and once that’s done, each batch of beans is inspected by a real person, who removes any defective beans. Then it’s on to the Board, who’ll decide whether the coffee is up to scratch. If it is, then off it goes, and with a luxury product, comes a luxury price.
BEWARE: Some companies will claim that their coffee is Jamaica Blue Mountain, but it could be that what they’re selling is a blend, or a Jamaica Blue Mountain-style coffee. Price is a dead giveaway. Always read the label carefully.
If you can afford it, and you can get hold of some, then undoubtedly, yes, Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is worth it. Still relatively rare, due entirely to how little of it is made, this is one luxury commodity which definitely exceeds the hype.
To answer the question, ‘Is Blue Mountain Coffee from Jamaica the best in the world?’ .... yes indeed it is!
