Jamaica Blue Mountain available in shops and online next week…pre-order now

| December 17, 2010

On rugged slopes rising over 7000 feet out of the Caribbean, covered in a perpetual shroud of mist, a cherry that ripens at a snail like pace has long been the subject of myth and controversy…

Prized for its mild, balanced, and sweet cup; Jamaica Blue Mountain has long been a renowned and distinct coffee: claimed by many to be the best in the world. Due to the limited production and high demand from Japan, very little of the genuine product reaches the U.S. We are fortunate to have found a barrel of the top grade, imported by our friend Jay. After weeks of developing a roast profile on our vintage 1935 Gothot sample roaster, we have found the sweet spot for this unique island coffee, which is sure to please even the most discerning palate. Full bodied, with low acidity and generous chocolate toned sweetness; this is a round, smooth cup from start to finish. Maybe the smoothest ever.

We will be roasting this coffee on Tuesday, December 21st, and it will be available at all of our Seattle retail locations (Capitol Hill, Fremont, Queen Anne, Seward Park, and Pioneer Square)  for $33 per 1/2 lb. It is also available online right now for pre-order* and shipment on December 22nd.
*We cannot guarantee delivery of this coffee by December 25th. If you live in WA or OR, there’s a good chance it will show by the 24th, but again we cannot guarantee this for sure. This isn’t the kind of coffee you’ll want to share with the in-laws anyway. It’ll be best enjoyed during some sweet, slow, downtime between Christmas and New Year’s. That’s our plan for it, anyways…
