Great Northern Coffee

Organic Coffee


Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee or Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is a classification of coffee grown in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. The best lots of Blue Mountain coffee are noted for their mild flavour and lack of bitterness. Over the last several decades, this coffee has developed a reputation that has made it one of the most expensive and sought-after coffees in the world.

Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is a globally protected certification mark, meaning only coffee certified by the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica can be labeled as such. It comes from a recognised growing region in the Blue Mountain region of Jamaica, and its cultivation is monitored by the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica.

The Blue Mountains are generally located between Kingston to the south and Port Antonio to the north. Rising to 2,300 metres (7,500 ft), they are some of the highest mountains in the Caribbean. The climate of the region is cool and misty with high rainfall. The soil is rich, with excellent drainage. This combination of climate and soil is considered ideal for coffee.

Legend states that a single planting was brought over from the French King’s own palace garden in the 1600’s, where the harvest flourished in the lush tropical climate of one of the world’s most beautiful countries. For hundreds of years the people of Jamaica have cultivated this hidden treasure, spreading Blue Mountain coffee throughout the region. Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is considered the mother of all Arabica coffees in the western hemisphere. With Blue Mountain coffee cultivation taking place from 2000-5000 feet on the island, the various labels have a distinct regional flavor. Above 5,000 feet the lush tropical land is protected by the Government as a forest reserve. Optimal climactic conditions on the tiny island have gently nurtured the growth and cultivation of the world’s most distinguished and delicious coffee.
