Roast: NA Review Date: May 1999
Origin: Jamaica Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Close to the great Blue Mountains of the past: balanced, round, very rich, almost bouillon-like, with a slight, spicy effervescence tickling at the heart of the cup. Regrettably, a faint, almost undetectable hardness or storage-related fading shadows the otherwise superb cup.

Notes: Alex Twyman's 100% certified Jamaica Blue Mountain single-estate coffee.. The aroma is intense, nicely balanced between sweet and dry notes. Rich and arresting acidity dominates the first impression, supported by pungent mid-tones. From the 1998/99 crop.

Who Should Drink It: Name-droppers who want a coffee that comes very close to living up to its famous name.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
