This venerable Jamaican producer, with its own farms as well as a community of loyal independent farmers, represents all that is finest in the demanding world of the Blue Mountains with its exacting quality standards. The pulpery and finishing plant are managed to the highest environmental (HACCP) standards in the only major processing works located in the heart of the Blue Mountains near to the farms. The local community is proud to be associated with Mavis Bank which cares for its employees based on a long tradition in local relations. This legacy is reflected in the mellow cup with its nut-rich overtones.

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.

Additional Info

Deep in the Blue Mountains lies the Mavis Bank Central Processing Unit. Coffee was first cultivated here by Augustus Munn, and with the help of his son, Victor Munn, the estate grew to become the Mavis Bank Central Factory. Mavis Bank estate has been family run ever since, producing Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee to its high standards for almost a century. Under the leadership of Victor Munn’s nephew, Keble Munn, Mavis Bank grew to handle 40% of the island’s Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee production. Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is a legally protected name, ensuring that only coffee that meets the quality standards of Jamaica Blue Mountain, can legally carry the name Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.

Coffee is the solution..who cares what the question is.

  • Grind fresh

    An investment in a small grinder will take your coffee pleasure up from a 7 to a 9 in a single swoop.  Many of coffee's richest and most delicious flavors are lost within less than a minute of grinding - escaped sensory pleasure that could have been yours. The simple act of grinding your beans fresh gives you the maximum ability to unlock what your coffee has to offer.

  • Keep it fresh

    Stale beans loses flavor. Keeping beans fresh is easier than you think. Once opened, store your bag of coffee in a cool dry place.  We recommend using a vacuum sealed storage container to maintain aroma and rich, full coffee flavor.

  • Engage your senses.

    Engage all your senses to get the most from your coffee - like excellent wine, coffee (at it's finest) is a multi-sensory joy.

  • Less is more

    To get the most from your coffee we suggest drinking from a small glass. By drinking your coffee in a small glass (we sometimes use brandy glasses) and interspersing your sips with a little water, you will experience huge flavours from every mouth full.

  • Water and oxygen bring coffee to life

    Saliva helps to liberate the volatile aromas in your mouth and a big breathe of oxygen helps to carry those aromas up through the mouth and into the nose for retronasal smelling to take effect.  Our Head Taster, Guy Wilmot is obsessive about hydration as being one of the secrets to his success in the cupping room.

  • Heat your cup, drink it now

    Steamed milk drinks like Cappuccino, Latte and Flat White are little daily pleasures we love. Be careful to not over heat beyond 70C as milk starts to burn and loses it's sweet deliciousness.  To avoid the temptation, use cold milk in a cold jug when steaming and make sure you have heated your porcelain cup.  Enjoy your drink as soon as it is prepared (they call it espresso for a reason) - it'll be the perfect temperature without being overheated!

  • Save Money and Time, whilst enjoying higher quality coffee.

    Why not pick up an Impress Brewer from our accessories section. The Impress Brewer is not only a coffee plunger but also doubles as a thermal travel mug.  You can therefore brew your coffee on the go and enjoy it on your commute instead of spending money on coffee at a coffee shop... This way you can select your favourite type of coffee and enjoy it on a daily basis.

  • Did you know?

    Did you know that the 500 billion disposable cups we manufacture annually placed end to end could circumnavigate the earth 1,360 times? Why not try a KeepCup and do your part for the environment and look good whilst doing it..

  • How do you take yours?

    Apparently, espresso is regulated by the Italian government because it is considered an essential part of their daily life.

  • Did you know?

    Coffee is actually a fruit. Well…the bean comes from a ripped berry that is hand-picked. Could this be considered as your 5-a-day? We’ll let you decide.
