Jamaica Blue Mountain – Green
|Review Date:||July 1998|
Blind Assessment: No outright defects were cited for this Jamaican coffee, but panelists found little to praise. "No there there," wrote one; "mild to a fault," wrote another. The only panelist to give this coffee a decent rating praised its sweetness and balance. Three detected a slight off taste, applying outdoorsy terms like grassy and woody to it, terms that suggest the coffee may not have been rested long enough after drying.
Notes: Wet-processed at the Wallenford mill, the coffee had no outright defect, but there is little to praise. Slight off taste. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. The Wallenford name describes coffee from the Blue Mountain region of Jamaica wet-processed at the Wallenford mill. The coffee itself comes from a variety of microclimates and elevations. The current Wallenford mill uses a type of wet-processing method.
