|Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is one of the finest coffees in the world. It is noticably rich and flavorful with a deep, silky smoothness that is unmatched by most of the world's coffee. If you wonder why the Blue Mountains of Jamaica produce one of the true wonders of the coffee world, you'll have to know some of the history of coffee in Jamaica. When you shop for Blue Mountain coffee from Jamaica, you'll see that it is an expensive coffee to purchase. Part of the reason for its price is that the Japanese discovered coffee on Jamaica long ago and now account for 80% of all the coffee grown in Jamaica. In comparison, the United States is the second largest importer of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee at 8%. Surprisingly, only a few Jamaicans enjoy Jamaican coffee. Jamaicans, as a nation, assimalated British customs and grew to love tea, when it was still a British colony, many years ago.|

The Blue Mountain Coffee of Jamaica grows in the tall, cool, rainy Blue Mountains of Jamaica. The growing region itself is closely regulated by the Coffee Industry Regulation Act that restricts the Blue Mountain Coffee name from being put on any other coffees grown outside of the following three parishes of Saint Andrew, Saint Thomas, Portland and Saint Mary. The coffee grown here is known both as Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee and just Blue Mountain Coffee, the beans grown on the mountainsides of the tallest mountain ranges in the Caribbean are also used as a flavor base for Tia Maria coffee liqueur.
The Jamaican soil here is extremely fertile with adequate drainage. Even when it's not raining on other places on the island, the rain often continues to fall in the Blue Mountains, sometimes for days or weeks at a time. The resulting Arabica beans produce a rich, smooth flavor like no other coffee beans in the world. To appreciate it fully, you have to enjoy a cup first hand because it's difficult to understand why Blue Mountain coffee products are so costly otherwise. It's really easy to see why Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is so popular if you've ever vistited Jamaica. If you're fortunate enough to take a tour of the Blue Mountain Coffee region, you will certainly be impressed with the diligent care and protective processes that the beans receive. After harvesting, the beans are shelled out and air dried in the dry heat of the Jamaican sun. after drying, the coffee beans are all hand sorted by local resident Jamaican ladies who work out in the open-air shelters. These "experienced experts" quickly grade the beans as they pass the time singing traditional songs and talk to each other in the singsong style of the Jamaican dialect.
