Climate / Geography
Arabica coffee loves the nitrogen and phosphorus-rich soil of Jamaica and nowhere else better than the steep elevations of the Blue Mountains. Located north of Kingston on the eastern side of the island, the Blue Mountains rise to elevations of 2,350 metres. The bean cultivated is mostly Arabica Typica; it thrives in the fertile, volcanic soil, regular rainfall and, most importantly, under the islands misty cloud cover, to shade it from the burning sun. All these factors combine to develop a coffee with exceptional sweetness and aroma, rich flavour, and full body with mild acidity. Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is legally defined under Jamaican law as consisting of certain geographically defined coffee estates above 3,000 feet.
