The rarest of all coffees has been satisfying coffee connoisseurs around the globe for more than two centuries and is famous for its exquisite flavour, good acidity, a clean refined taste, unusual sweetness, excellent body, and intense bold aroma. This rare treasure is Jamaica Blue Mountain — now available at Viva Java!
This extraordinary coffee is grown in the majestic Blue Mountain range in Jamaica at an elevation of 3000 feet. 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, Governor of Jamaica, imported Arabica seedlings from the Island of Martinique. The new home was a natural fit and coffee production expanded. Government support and instruction in the art of cultivation allowed the industry to develop in reputation and quality.
The Jamaican 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 Jamaican Blue Mountain label. As a result, all shipments of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee must be approved and certified by the only certifying agency, the Jamaican Coffee Industry Board.
Jamaica Blue Mountain is unlike any other coffee you’ve tasted. We invite you to try this rare treasure and tell us your thoughts. Please contact us today to order!
