Jamaican Blue Mountain Clydesdale Estate - Heavy Medium
Jamaica Blue Mountain Grade 1 Clydesdale Estate is sourced from family-owned farms located near the Saint Andrew parish nestled in the Grand Ridge of the Blue Mountains, Jamaica. Coffee produced in the Jamaican Blue Mountains has a protected designation of origin (PDO) because of the renowned reputation of Blue Mountain coffee. Coffee is inter-cropped with banana, Inga, mango and many other shade trees. The Clydesdale wet-mill is the most modern in Jamaica with technology to recycle and treat water before returning it to the environment. The dry mill, located in an economically underprivileged part of Kingston, employees over 600 women to hand sort coffee. In addition to the social impact from stable employment, funds are also invested in projects to support over 30 schools.
All Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee must be certified by the coffee industry board of Jamaica. The regulations are very strict and much of the coffee is rejected.
Tasting Notes:Beautiful coffee, soft islandy acidity mixing with a cool caramel/chocolaty tone, little hints of soft fruit and a sweet edge.
