Jamaica Blue Mountain Mavis Bank Estate
$32.00 – $80.00
This current crop is the best I have tried, rich, full body, creamy, with almond and chocolate.
Mavis Bank is a rural coffee farming community about 10 miles north east of Kingston, Jamaica in east rural St. Andrew in the Blue Mountains, close to the border of St. Thomas. The town takes its name from a surrounding coffee estate (itself named after a historic house in Scotland) which has been owned by the Munn family for many years and is the main employer in the area. One of the coffees produced by the estate is Jamaican Blue Mountain.
True Blue Mountain is an unusual coffee; it has good body, and some very interesting mild nutty flavors with herbal notes of chamomile or sometimes of spice. Even though it is grown at higher altitudes than most other island coffees, it still has the soft cup profile. The quintessential classic coffee with everything: rich flavour and aroma, full body and moderate acidity in perfect balance. Whereas Kenya is noted for its acidity and Sumatra for its body, Jamaica Blue Mountain is noted only for its perfection.
This current crop came to us, in the usual barrel, but, for the first time, hermetically sealed in an EcoTech plastic bag. This protects the coffee from contamination as well as preserves the moisture content. The result is a way better than average authentic Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. The cup is rich, full body, creamy, with almond and chocolate and is the best I have tried from Jamaica.
