Old Tavern Estate
Jamaica Blue Mountain – Medium Roast, 2006-07 Crop
|Roaster Location:||Green Hills, Portland, Jamaica|
|Coffee Origin:||Blue Mountain growing region, eastern Jamaica.|
|Review Date:||July 2007|
Very sweet-toned, very deeply dimensioned aroma, with lush cedary chocolate notes and hints of banana and molasses. In the cup plush in mouthfeel, roundly resonant, chocolate-toned. Rich but simple finish.
Old Tavern Estate is a genuine "estate," meaning a medium-sized farm operated by dedicated owners, the Alex Twyman family. It is situated in one of the higher-elevation parts of the Blue Mountains, and in a good year (this year was a fair year) produces outstanding coffees particularly remarkable for their full, bouillon-like body. Roasted and packaged in Jamaica. Visit
Who Should Drink It
The bigger bodied, deeper style of Jamaica Blue Mountain, direct from the farm at (for a Blue Mountain) a reasonable price.
