6/08/2013// Jamaican Blue Mountain is now availableby the cup and as whole beans.
The coffee we roast and sell is 100% grade 1 Jamaican Blue Mountain (JBM) from Clysdale Farm. Jamiacan Blue Mountain is a globally protected mark, meaning only coffee certified by the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaican can be called Jamaican Blue Mountain.
JBM grows between 3,000-5,000ft. At this high of an altitude the bean plants grow slower and have time to develop its rich character notes. JBM coffees are kown for their sweet rich, mild & smooth tasting notes and a remarkable lack of bitterness.
At the cafe: JBM coffee is offer as a single serve using french press.

Espresso (e-spres-oh): is not a particular type of bean, roast or blend. Espresso is just a way coffee is prepared: pressuized hot water shooting through finely ground coffee. The brew is done in 20 - 24 second producing 1oz of intense, flavourful tasting coffee.
