Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee from the Mavis Bank Estate has become recognized for its clean, mild, qualities and good body. The Mavis Bank Estate uses only spring water to sort the green beans, which are then allowed to age for three to four months at 3,000 feet. When the coffee beans develop a greenish blue color, we know it's ready to ship to our roaster.
Profile: Light-bodied with a spicy aroma, balanced flavor and a complex finish. Typical soft lush Caribbean profile with less acidity than Kona, but more complex.
Place: Blue Mountains, Jamaica.
People: Established in the 1930's by Victor Munn, Mavis Bank was rebuilt by Munn's nephew Keble Munn in the late 1950s. The Munn family still presides over the operations today, processing fruit from the original property along with fruit delivered by thousands of nearby farmers.
Process: Fully washed and 100% patio dried in the sun, most Jamaican Blue Mountain is comprised of fruit from different farms over a broad region. The beans are processed at Wallenford Estate, a facility owned by the Coffee Board. Like Kona, the use of the name is affiliated with a specific region by law. Our Jamaican is a more specific product processed at the Mavis Bank Central Factory at the proper elevation.
Pairing: Fresh Peaches or strawberries, blueberry muffin.
