Special Jamaican Blue Mountain Opportunity

Jamaica Blue Mountain: Mavis BankJamaica Blue Mountain - Mavis Bank

This week I spoke with one of our discriminating customers who requested authentic Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee for a special event.  He’s not the first customer that has expressed an interest in this, so perhaps now would be a good time to extend the invitation to all of our Blacksmith Coffee Roastery coffee connoisseurs to preorder a bag of “real” Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee.

About Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee


Jamaica has a rich coffee tradition.  Historically the high altitude of the Blue Mountains in eastern Jamaica produced exceptional coffee…….arguably the best in the world.  However, due to a variety of reasons, the Blue Mountain name has been polluted by greed and slick marketing of inferior products that don’t deserve the name.  Even casual coffee drinkers are aware of the Jamaica Blue Mountain name, thought it’s mostly applied to low-grade, overpriced blends.

Today there is really only one estate that produces the same quality coffee that gave Blue Mountain coffee its stellar reputation…..it’s coffee bearing the Mavis Bank mark.  First of all, Mavis Bank coffee is 100% pure Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.  Most of their plantations produce coffee that is grown at altitudes between 4000 and 5000 feet.  They harvest and process this delicate coffee at this altitude too, taking tremendous pride and care which is critical in maintaining its quality.

Bottom line – It’s exceptional coffee!  Yes, it’s expensive, but if you would like to try a very rare, very smooth, well balanced island coffee, there’s none better!

Your Chance to Get “Real” Jamaican Blue Mountain


I will be ordering Mavis Bank Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee to roast and package on Wednesday, September 2nd.  The roast style on this coffee is important because it’s a relatively delicate bean.  It will be a Full City roast to preserve the distinctive herbal notes, some interesting mild nutty flavors and hint of tropical fruit.  This coffee is exceptionally well balanced with a good body, mild acidity and overall profile.  Its not going to beat you over the head with exotic flavors, its just a very complete, balanced and smooth coffee.

Because of its limited supply, its reputation, and the fact that 80% – 90% of this coffee goes to Japan, it’s not cheap.  However, our price is as low as any I’ve seen on authentic Mavis Bank Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee and we will be offering 12oz bags for $30.

If you would like to reserve a bag or two, (or six :-)) get your order in by 5:00pm – Monday, August 24th. Extended to Thursday, August 27th. I will be ordering first thing the next day and just need to know how much to order.  I already have a commitment for 15kg, but if there’s enough interest, I may order a 30kg barrel.

    Thanks for your comment, Michael! Your points are well spoken and I absolutely agree that label accuracy needs to be critically important to the American coffee industry. Whether it’s fraudulent Blue Mountain labeling or even the shady false labeling of American grown non-Kona coffees as 100% Kona, there is much confusion out there on part of the average consumer about what they’re brewing and drinking. Bottom line, nothing compares to the real Jamaican Blue Mountain coffees, no matter what label you put on them! Thanks to you and your family for growing such a wonderful product! We wish you a wonderful crop this year!

    Thank you very much for singing the praises of my beloved coffee. Thanks also for pointing out that that there is a certain amount of corruption in our industry. It is very reflective of what our society is rapidly becomming. My family have been Blue Mountain Coffee farmers for three generations. We take a tremendous amount of pride in what we do. It is this pride and great love for what we do that enables to work tirelessly almost every day. Hopefully our coffee board will be become more strident in stopping non-Blue Mountain Coffee growers from donning the Blue Mountain label that so many have worked so hard to develope. Thanks again
