It is quite common to hear people go: “coffee?” at least once a day. Even if they don’t say it out loud, they are bound to find themselves with a cup or mug in their hand savoring either the smell or the taste of the brew. Even those of the population who say that they don’t drink coffee have been to a coffee shop and enjoyed the rich scent that permeates the shop while chatting with their friends.
There are so many varieties to choose from. There are so many varied tastes and textures to coffee that it can be hard to decide which one is perfect. So far though, I have yet to hear anyone disagree that Jamaica‘s Blue Mountain Coffee is delicious.
The Blue Mountains are a range of hills on the eastern side of the Jamaican island. The coffee is grown just below 5,500 feet where nature has created a wonderful home for the coffee plants. They are grown just below the forest reserve. The combination of the terrain, the rainfall and the Blue Mountain mist combine to create beans that make the base for a wonderful brew that has a taste so clean it is sweet. It is smooth rich and just absolutely perfect!
If you can’t decide what to get your best friend for her birthday and she lives on coffee, you won’t go wrong if you choose to get her some Blue Mountain coffee as a gift. There is a limited amount available since unlike most, these beans are not grown by plantations but by small area farmers. Its rarity is partly why it is such a treasure. Try some for yourself!
