There are good savings to be made if you can buy 2 or 3 bags of these coffees at a time.
I have recommended both the Whole Beans and the Roasted & Ground version, because for some people, it’s just a matter of convenience! Some people enjoy the ritual of scooping out and grinding the beans for the pot they are going to brew, others just want the convenience of spooning already ground coffee into the percolator, or drip. I personally, usually prefer the already ground coffee, but I have gotten the whole beans many times, and I must admit, it certainly keeps the coffee fresher longer.
As for the unique taste mentioned in the prior blog, Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee has a unique taste. If you like a strong, punchy, bitter coffee, this is not it! This coffee has a gentle, sweet taste, smooth on the tongue, and is much less acidic than most coffees. The sweetness can also be discerned in the aroma. Be careful buying this coffee, remember what I said about pretenders, authentic Jamaican coffee really does taste different to most other coffees. The logo on this brand is “The Lion of Judah”, and it should say 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee! Don’t settle for the brand that just calls itself “Mountain Brand”.
The old and well respected Jamaican family, the Munns, were instrumental in developing and branding authentic Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, starting in the 1800s. They collaborate with micro farms, and oversee the important Mavis Bank Coffee Factory, and protecting the brand. I have had the pleasure of knowing members of this family since I was a youngster.
The Papua New Guinea Coffee Industry was started in the 1930s when some English Colonials brought Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee beans to the area, to start a coffee plantation. Papua New Guinea also has mountain ranges of 5000 feet or so, so the growing conditions were similar. Therefore, you might notice a similarity in taste to Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee.

More Fun Facts
Why not have Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee the way locals do? It really does taste divine with some sweetened condensed milk! If you are a vegan, I don’t recommend coconut milk, but almond milk is passably nice in it. Then, sprinkle a dash of Allspice Powder, or Nutmeg, and drink this warm spicy/sweet brew.
Jamaicans also typically enjoy a slice of the local Hardo Bread with it, along with the spicy Escovitched Fish. Or, you may want to try it as a dessert drink, with a slice of cake, especially our dense Fruit Cake.
Last Fun Fact For Today
Did you know that Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is a hit in Japan? So much so, that there was a time when the locals were not able to get as much of the coffee as they wanted because so much of it was being exported to Japan! The Japanese were having a Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee ceremony, similar to their elaborate Japanese Tea Ceremony! Too flattering.
