Our Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is grown at the Mavis Bank Estate – one of four certified coffee producers of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee. Established in 1885, this estate utilizes only spring water to sort the green beans, which are then ‘put to sleep’ for 3-4 months at 3000 feet where the coffee begins to develop, becoming a greenish blue color. The coffee trees are located on the East & West sides of the mountain so that they receive only 4-5 hours of direct sunlight per day. Hence the beans mature at a much slower rate (taking 7-8 months, rather than the usual 4-5).
Light & Subtle
Established in the 1930’s by Victor Munn, Mavis Bank was rebuilt by his nephew Keble Munn in the late 1950’s. The Munn family still presides over the operations today, processing fruit from the original property along with fruit delivered by thousands of nearby farmers. The harvest period extends from December to May. Each tree produces only about 7 pounds of coffee annually.
Due to the restricted area qualified to grow this exceptional coffee, only 4000 barrels (650,000 pounds) are produced per year. The beans are handpicked, and very limited amounts of machinery can be employed in its’ processing. Most production is by hand.
