  • Old Tavern Estate, 2001-02 Crop

Roast: Medium Review Date: March 2003
Origin: Blue Mountain growing region, eastern Jamaica. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Medium-bodied but expansively rich with complex mid to low notes. Cedar, nuts and dry fruit in the aroma; sweetly melodic fruit and floral notes in the cup. A dash of astringency in the finish tightens the fruit notes toward grapefruit.

Notes: Old Tavern Estate is one of a few farms in the Blue Mountain district permitted by the Coffee Board of Jamaica to export its coffee as an estate origin. Imported by Kaya Imports and roasted by Down East Coffee, Notre Dame, New Brunswick, Canada. Visit www.kayaimports.com or call 877-755-5292 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: This past crop Old Tavern Blue Mountain is not as heavy bodied as the Blue Mountain ideal, but a classic coffee in the sweet, low-toned European mode.
