Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee

One of the world’s greatest treasures..

If you love coffee, you're going to love Jamaica! Indulging in a cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is more than just a beverage; it's an experience that encapsulates the essence of Jamaica itself. Imagine sipping your morning coffee while surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Blue Mountains or enjoying a freshly brewed cup with a hearty Jamaican breakfast beachside, as you soak in the warmth of the Jamaican sun. It's a sensory journey that combines the richness of nature with the mastery of coffee craftsmanship. Our world-class coffee is an experience that must be savored firsthand. And guess what?  You could be here, sipping on it right now!

The best coffee in the world!

Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is the most highly sought after, and truly the best coffee in the world! Its smooth, well-balanced taste carries hints of chocolate, floral notes, and a subtle sweetness that lingers on the palate. This smooth Arabica coffee is  naturally alkaline and contains vitamins and nutrients making it beneficial for daily consumption. Unlike the majority of the island, the Blue Mountain experiences its own micro-climate of significantly cooler temperatures and trustworthy afternoon rain, the ideal ingredients for ruby red coffee blossoms to grow. The largest mountain range in Jamaica, the Blue and John Crow Mountain range, has also been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Every sip is a journey through a myriad of flavors. It is no wonder that Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is hailed as the world's finest coffee.

100% Jamaican

Authentic Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is cultivated only at elevations between 3,000 - 5,500 feet in the cloud forest of the Blue and John Crow Mountain range. When it comes to flavor, Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is truly unrivaled. Take the Blue Mountain Bicycle Tour for a coffee tour with a difference or visit Craighton Estate in the cool climes of Irish Town, and immerse yourself in the aroma, taste, and rich heritage that make this coffee truly extraordinary.

The Annual Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee Festival celebrates the beloved berry and all things coffee. You’ll find artisanal candles, coffee liqueurs, and a host of other coffee infused products to try. Book a coffee scrub with a sensory spa experience at Strawberry Hill and come back to Ahhhhhh. End the day watching the sun set on the verandah at Café Blue and sip on the finest Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and desserts as bejeweled hummingbirds zip by.

Whether you prefer ground or whole coffee beans, be sure to take some authentic Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee home with you. One sip of this magical brew will transport you back to your sweetest memories of Jamaica, until the next time.

Did you know? Only coffee grown between 3,000 and 5,500 feet can be classified as Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, while below 3,000 feet it is classified as Jamaica High Mountain Coffee.

Jovana is a seasoned coffee researcher with a deep-rooted passion for all things coffee. she comes from a country where people drink  domestic coffee  (what the rest of the world knows as turkish coffee) and where nescafe designates all instant coffees ever made. so, imagine her first encounter with, say, hario v60... yes, it was love at first sight.  today she's a seasoned coffee connoisseur and a huge coffee lover. her favorite brewing methods are the v60 and traditional espresso-making..

If your next vacation destination is Jamaica, you are going to the homeland of Blue Mountain coffee beans grown on the idyllic Blue Mountains. Lucky you!

Coffee Tours

During your visit, you should venture into the Blue Mountains to see these coffee beans growing. These beans are special for a reason. Jamaica’s Blue Mountain range experiences cooler temperatures and afternoon rain — a micro climate that encourages ruby red coffee blossoms to flourish and grow. Many compare them to Kona coffee as they’re both expensive .

During the Blue Mountains tour, you’ll also get a view of the Blue and John Crow Mountain range, which is the largest mountain range in Jamaica. If you want to know more about Blue Mountain coffee before you go on a tour, you can do it here .

Blue Mountain coffee is a balanced, classic coffee with rich flavor, full-body, and a smooth yet vibrant acidity.

There are many tours of the Blue Mountains available. Below are three of the best options on the island.

Blue Mountain Coffee Estate Tour

This unforgettable tour of the Jamaica Blue Mountains delivered by Island Outpost is five hours of enjoyment. You visit two historic estate houses on this Jamaica coffee tour, as you weave your way across the mountainside. You will see how coffee grows and feel the unique microclimate your favorite beans thrive in on this nature walk. The final destination is Clifton Mount ( 1 ).

Once you arrive there, you’ll walk around the coffee farm to enjoy the beauty. To end your trip, you are served a delicious lunch and sought after a good cup of Joe made with these beans.

There is an optional 1.5 hour add on. On this bonus adventure, you get to see the coffee roasting process. With this extra segment, you can see the entire process of coffee production from start to finish.

Craighton Estate Tour

On this one hour tour, you see all Craighton Estate has to offer ( 2 ). There are over 80 acres of coffee plants in various stages of growth. You get to see them all. You also go on a grand tour of the 200-year-old house to learn where the original owners lived. The tour will end with a highly-anticipated fresh cup of coffee and a stunning view of Kingston from the highpoint of the estate.

This tour is one of the shortest and more affordable Blue Mountains tour options, so it is excellent for families. Your kids may not care about coffee, so one hour may be more than enough time for them. Yet, you still get to see authentic JBM coffee crops and taste a fresh cup at the top of the island.

The Ultimate Blue Mountain Coffee Experience

The Jamaican Tour Society provides this unique tour experience ( 3 ). It is one of the longest Blue Mountains Jamaica coffee tours, so you have a full day ahead!

The morning begins with a hike. Bring your best walking shoes because this is not a leisurely stroll. By the end of the day, you gain 4,000 feet of elevation. Be prepared to break a sweat.

You pass by an old British military fort called Newcastle. Clifton Mount is the most important destination. Here, you will go on a tour to see the coffee-making process and taste a delicious cup. Also, you will visit Strawberry Hill. It’s another historic coffee estate offering panoramic views of the surrounding valley.

Things to do on Blue Mountain coffee tours.

Final Thoughts

There is a Blue Mountains Jamaica coffee tour for everybody ranging from one hour to a full coffee-filled day. You can have an unforgettable experience as you see first hand where the world-renowned Blue Mountain coffee grows.

Did you find this information helpful? Have you already been on a tour and have suggestions? Let us know!

What should I bring with me on a walking tour?

You should wear sturdy shoes and bring a rain jacket. At increased elevations, the weather can be very different from the sunny shores below. Also, bring sunscreen, your camera, and some extra cash to buy any coffee beans to take home.

Will the rest of my family enjoy a tour if they don’t drink coffee?

Even if you or your loved ones don’t like coffee, booking for a Blue Mountains tour can still be enjoyable. Every JBM coffee estate is scenic. The views and nature alone are worth the trip. The coffee is a bonus for some.

Do all tours include a long hike?

No, not every Blue Mountains coffee tour requires participants to hike. The second tour from above is only one hour and has no strenuous hiking.

Our fact-checking process is rigorous and thorough, designed to ensure that every piece of information we share is accurate, up-to-date, and reliable.

Every article we publish undergoes a stringent fact-checking procedure. To complement our own first hand experience, we draw from reputable sources within the industry, including coffee communities such as the coffee and espresso SubReddits, and a number of specialty coffee forums and private groups.

Our editors cross-reference every claim, statistic, and piece of data with multiple sources to verify its accuracy. We also compare our own experience to community reviews to see if there is anything we may have overlooked. Any discrepancies found are flagged and corrected before the article is published.

This meticulous process ensures that the information you receive from Home Grounds is not only engaging and useful but also trustworthy and reliable. We're committed to helping you 'Brew Better Coffee', and that starts with providing you with the best, most accurate information possible.

Homegrounds.Co Is Your Most Trusted Resource On All Things Coffee

Hey, we get it. The internet is brimming with big-shot publishers claiming to be the 'know-it-all' of everything, including coffee. But let's spill the beans here - most of the websites you find on Google are run by big media companies; not by coffee experts.

That's where we, at Home Grounds, come in. We're not just some faceless corporation; we're a tight-knit crew of coffee junkies, who live and breathe the art of coffee brewing on a daily basis. We're here to cut through the noise and give you the no-BS lowdown on coffee gear and home brewing, with real reviews from people that have actually used the items they write about.

Our team? We're a bunch of self-confessed coffee nerds, each with our own journey through the specialty coffee industry. From pulling espresso shots in hipster filled cafés, to roasting beans to perfection or tinkering with espresso machines - we've been there, done that.

And we don't just talk the talk. We put our money where our mouth is, sourcing and testing all the gear you see reviewed on our site. Each recommendation we make comes from extensive personal use.

As the industry is so fast-moving, we aim to keep our content fresh, updating our articles at least twice a year. So, when you see a machine or a coffee recommendation in our top picks, you know it's not just hot air.

We hope you'll join us on our mission to Brew Better Coffee.
