WHAT MAKES JAMAICA BLUE MOUNTAIN COFFEE SPECIAL?
Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is a delicacy and has the reputation as ‘the champagne of the coffee world’ and its extraordinary quality is regularly compared to the world’s most expensive coffees. Revered for its medium yet full-bodied, vibrant flavor and the smooth, rich floral aroma, Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee has limited yield and an intense vetting process to ensure the highest quality coffee can be made from its beans.

Choosing to purchase from a trusted gourmet artisan coffee specialist, like KIMA, is a way of securing that the most authentic Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee reaches your cup.
WHY IS JAMAICA BLUE MOUNTAIN COFFEE HIGHLY PRICED?
Growing and harvesting Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee involves intense, nurturing, hands-on attention.

This means quantity of cherries harvested is limited and together with an intense vetting process, the demand for exquisite Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is high. Today, this noble delicacy is a namesake in fine dining worldwide.
