  • Jamaican Blue Mountain, 2001-02 Crop

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

Blind Assessment: The full-bodied, quietly rich cup with its low-toned fruit and dusk floral notes is classic Blue Mountain. But the aromatics are a bit faded and the cup shadowed by a hint of mustiness, both of which suggest that this coffee is perhaps a bit past its prime.

Notes: Gloria Jean's is a pioneering specialty coffee franchise chain. Gloria Jean's coffees are now sourced and roasted by California-based Diedrich Coffee. Visit www.gloriajeans.com or call 800-354-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: This faded princess of a coffee till demonstrates the body and low-toned complexity of the Blue Mountain cup.


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.
