Old Tavern Estate
Jamaica Blue Mountain #1
|Roaster Location:||Green Hills, Portland, Jamaica|
|Coffee Origin:||Blue Mountain growing region, Jamaica|
|Review Date:||November 2003|
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
Who Should Drink It: Name droppers with good taste.
