Green Mountain Coffee
Jamaican Blue Mountain Light Roast
|Blue Mountain district, eastern Jamaica.
Reader Ben Anderson finds this Blue Mountain "phenomenal," a "yardstickexample of the variety ... extremely complex and proportioned." Certainly a fine example of theBlue Mountain profile, far better than any production roast Blue Mountain I have cupped overthe past few years: balanced, with resonant, bell-toned dimension and classic fruit notes of pure essential coffee character.
Coffee from the silvery misted Blue Mountains of Jamaica is one of the world's highestpriced coffees. Contemporary generic Blue Mountain is often disappointing, but this samplefrom Green Mountain Coffee Roasters approaches the round, resonant, big but balanced cup thathelped establish the Blue Mountain reputation. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of thecountry's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins androast styles, including a comprehensive selection of Fair-Trade/organic coffees.
