  • Jamaica Blue Mountain - Medium Roast, 2006-07 Crop

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Blue Mountain growing region, eastern Jamaica. Price: $19.95/8oz

Blind Assessment: Very sweet-toned, very deeply dimensioned aroma, with lush cedary chocolate notes and hints of banana and molasses. In the cup plush in mouthfeel, roundly resonant, chocolate-toned. Rich but simple finish.

Notes: Old Tavern Estate is a genuine "estate," meaning a medium-sized farm operated by dedicated owners, the Alex Twyman family. It is situated in one of the higher-elevation parts of the Blue Mountains, and in a good year (this year was a fair year) produces outstanding coffees particularly remarkable for their full, bouillon-like body. Roasted and packaged in Jamaica. Visit www.exportjamaica.org/oldtavern or call 876-924-2785 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: The bigger bodied, deeper style of Jamaica Blue Mountain, direct from the farm at (for a Blue Mountain) a reasonable price.
