Martinez Fine Coffees
Jamaica Blue Mountain Clifton Mount Estate, Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Atlanta, Georgia|
|Coffee Origin:||Blue Mountain growing region, eastern Jamaica.|
|Review Date:||July 2007|
Blind Assessment: Crisp, rather limited aroma: caramel and milk chocolate. In the cup sweet, delicate, rather shallow and lean, with a pleasant dry nutty chocolate character. Unexpectedly, the finish stretches out splendidly, rich and chocolate-toned.
Notes: Coffee growing was first established at Clifton Mount Estate over 200 years ago, and renewed in 1983 after an earlier hurricane had devastated the property. Martinez Fine Coffees specializes in elite single-origin coffees only and has offered an impressive range of Jamaica coffees ever since the company was founded by the distinguished Jamaican-born coffee man John Martinez.

Who Should Drink It: A pleasant but delicately shallow coffee that sends us away resonating with a finely turned finish.
