Greenwich Mountain Estate
Greenwich Blue 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain
|Roaster Location:||Kingston, Jamaica|
|Coffee Origin:||Blue Mountain growing region, Jamaica|
|Review Date:||September 2004|
Blind Assessment: Low-key, sweetly pungent aroma: pear, caramel, chocolate. In the cup rich, roundly full-bodied, with plum and chocolate notes. A slight astringent sharpness tends to shadow the lush aromatics, however, particularly in the finish.
Notes: A pure Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, processed on the estate and roasted and packaged in Jamaica. The start-to-finish control exercised by the estate proprietors makes this coffee different from most Jamaica Blue Mountain, which is anonymously processed in centralized wet mills and roasted at points outside Jamaica.

Who Should Drink It: The big body, round richness and low-key fruit of a fine Jamaica Blue Mountain are here, though the expansive sweetness is all but missing.
