Today there is one estate that produces the same quality coffee that gave Blue Mountain coffee its stellar reputation…..it’s coffee bearing the Mavis Bank Coffee Factory 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.
As with many fine things in life, defining the taste and character of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is subjective. Everyone likes it, but individual observations vary wildly. Even eating the beans results in interesting observations....One visitor from our first JBM roast commented that the roasted bean tasted like a "chocolate covered espresso bean without the chocolate, but all the flavor. "
The aroma of the roasted beans was also exceptional, and truly hard to describe! It’s like this particular coffee possesses all the potential favorable characteristics a coffee can possess. The aroma is amazing with hints of chocolate, citrus, berries, and flowers.
The taste? Let’s just say, it provided a depth of flavor that was comprehensively exquisite! Since the Blue Mountain beans take 10 months to mature, they just soak up all the flavors available in the environment around them. All the aromas described above manifested themselves in perceptible flavors as well. Plus, there were notes of caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, bananas, and even sugar cane, mentioned by folks that have tasted it. Probably my favorite description was from someone who said that it possessed subtle “hints of white wedding cake….frosting and all.”We've ordered Mavis Bank Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee to roast and package on Thursday, December 9th. 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 subtle 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 you'll find online for authentic Mavis Bank Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee and we will be offering 1 pound bags for $40.
If you would like to order, we encourage you to do so asap. There is a 3 bag purchase limit, but we expect this roast will sell out.
I’m not sure if we'll be able to get another barrel before Christmas, so if you’ve been interested in trying what many consider to be the very best coffee in the world, don’t miss your chance! If we sell out fast, we might be able to get one more barrel before Christmas, but it would be foolish to promise that. If we do (sell out) and we can (get more JBM before Christmas) we'll let you know.
Bottom line – Jamaica Blue Mountain - Mavis Bank processed coffee is one stellar 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!
