Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee:
The Blue Mountains of Jamaica are named for the blue mists that continually shroud them. The mountain ranges across the eastern section of Jamaica, 28 miles long and 12 miles wide. The Blue Mountains are some of the highest mountains in the Caribbean, rising to 7,420 feet. Covered with rich soil with excellent drainage, the blue mountain region is perfect for growing coffee.
Blue Mountain® coffee goes through several processes. To ensure that consumers get value and quality, the Jamaican coffee industry has legislation in place demarcating the geographical boundaries, which define the coffee classified as Jamaican Blue Mountain®. This is reinforced by rigid inspection of the Jamaican Coffee Industry Board that certifies production and export of Jamaican Coffee. After it is reaped & certified, the coffee is pulped and washed and then dried, cured, hulled and graded by size and separated by density.
