  • Old Tavern Estate

    Green Hills, Portland, Jamaica
  • Jamaica Blue Mountain #1

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: November 2003
Origin: Blue Mountain growing region, Jamaica Price: $16.45/8oz

Blind Assessment: Mid-toned and complex in the nose with fresh apricot and sweet cocoa. Simplifies slightly in the cup, turning roundly tart in a rich Meyer lemon direction. The immediate finish is slightly sharp, but the long finish smoothes out in a silky lemony, chocolaty trajectory.

Notes: Old Tavern Estate is one of a handful of Jamaican farms permitted to process and export its coffee as a distinct estate origin. Roasted on the farm. Visit www.oldtaverncoffee.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Name droppers with good taste.
