EXPERIENCE ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST ELUSIVE GOURMET COFFEES
Discover the unique flavor and warmth of the Caribbean in KIMA’s 100% authentic, pure Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee. Rich in history, aroma & flavor, Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans are widely regarded amongst the rarest in the world.
With a mild climate ideal for growing world-class coffee, taste the natural majesty of the mist-shrouded mountains, where KIMA beans are grown at the perfect elevation. This beautiful cool blue mist reduces sunlight and slows down cherry maturation.
This has a truly remarkable effect on the aroma and taste of the beans. The result is an authentic, exclusive coffee flavor like no other.
The Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee legacy dates back as far as the 1700s. Today, KIMA melds this elusive, luxurious and delicious history into a soul-warming, nuanced and complex coffee with beautiful balance and no bitterness.
With sweet, nutty overtones, sparkling floral notes and bright acidity, savor one of the most distinguished flavors with an aroma that embodies the lively spirit and impossibly rich culture of Jamaica.

Most of us have a preferred ritual of making coffee.
But we recognize that we would be remiss if we didn’t share with you alternatives to consider. Try these to discover what suits you and your cup of KIMA.
Place the paper filter in the brew basket. For 6 cups add 45g of freshly ground coffee in the filter and tap to even out the grounds then place into your machine.
Add 750mL of cold water to the water reservoir to fill to the 6 cup marker and place carafe (coffee pot) under the brew basket and turn on and start your brew. Wait several minutes for brew to finish dripping. Serve immediately after for best results.
Avoid using hot plates to maintain temperature of the coffee. This “bakes” the coffee and compromises the quality in the cup.
Heat your Carafe before use.
Before brewing, rinse your paper filter with boiling water to remove the “papery” taste.
Use filtered water for best flavour results.
Pour-over brewing is a simple way to brew a clean, bright cup.
This style brings out subtle nuances in the beans, particularly
beans with bring, sparkling flavors.
Most pour-over drippers work best when they’re between one half to two-thirds full of coffee grounds.
Use water that’s about 30 seconds off boil and add enough water to soak all the coffee. Wait for the coffee bed to stop its initial swelling (about 30 seconds) before adding more water.
Try to pour quickly, gently and evenly across the surface of the coffee. The target total brew time is about 3-4 minutes for medium roasted coffees like KIMA.
The press pot, or French Press, offers direct infusion for fullbodied coffee. It’s an ideal companion for dark roasts, bringing out rich, complex flavors. For this method, freshly ground coffee is very important.
Add 6 tbsp of coffee ground for plunger and pour in 800mL of 96ºC water to fill the Plunger up to 2-inches from the top.
Let the coffee brew for 4-6 minutes then stir the top ‘crust’ layer allowing all coffee to fall to the bottom, then insert the plunger and gently push down.
Heat your plunger with hot water before use.
Avoid sediment in your cup by not plunging all the way to the bottom. Push ¾ of the way down.
Pouring slowly will also limit the sediment in your cup.
If you are having difficulty pushing the plunger down, stop pushing and pull slightly upwards, then continue pushing down.
Using freshly ground coffee for best flavor on the stovetop and fill the filter basket so it is level at the top. Fill the water reservoir to just below the safety valve and then place the filter basket into the water reservoir and screw in the top brew chamber.
Place on your stove (preferably the smallest burner) and set on medium heat setting. Once you hear a hissing/gurgling sound remove from heat and serve.
After removing from heat, run the base under cold water to stop the brewing process. This will reduce bitterness.
Dilute with hot water to make a long black consistency.
Use heated milk frothed with a plunger. Added to the coffee, the results are much like you can achieve from espresso machines.
