Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee Tasting Set
Tasting set of 1x 500g and 2x 250g whole espresso beans
One of the most expensive and highest quality espresso beans in the world, the Jamaica Blue Mountain bean. And its name is no coincidence - because it is grown exclusively in the Blue Mountains on the coast of Jamaica. It was the Jamaican governor Sir Nicolas Lawes who was gifted some Arabica coffee plants in 1728 and planted them high up in the Jamaican mountains. Nobody suspected that the growing conditions there were the absolute best.
The origin of these beans, in the highlands of St. Andrew, offers constant temperatures of 25-30 degrees Celsius at an altitude of over 2000m. Fluctuations of just 10% in humidity and 5 degrees in temperature throughout the whole year make the climate there so perfect for growing Jamaica Blue Mountain beans.
Millions of years of tectonic movement around the island of Jamaica have enriched the island with vast amounts of valuable minerals from the earth's core. In addition, St. Andrew on the north coast of the island, receives up to 5000mm of rainfall each year, which, combined with the consistent warmth, creates a lot of fog. Under these conditions, the coffee cherries grow particularly slowly there and develop an irresistibly mild but incomparably tasty aroma during this ripening period.
Harvesting the Blue Mountain beans is extraordinarily treacherous. Picking the precious, ripened coffee cherries on the steep slopes of Jamaica is a task that only the most experienced coffee pickers can perform.
In terms of taste, the beans offer a perfect harmony of light sweetness, barely noticeable acidity and a fruity note with hints of hazelnut. Together with the intense aroma and the long-lasting aftertaste on the palate, the Jamaica Blue bean becomes something very special.
All three espresso blends in this tasting set have been refined with this high-class coffee-bean variety.
100% Arabica of which 10% Jamaica Blue Mountain
Ethiopia Grade 1 Natural Typica - Heirloom
Honduras Marcala SHB Washed Bourbon - Catuai
Brazil Alta Mogiana franca Gr 2 17/18 Natural Catuai - Caturra
These 3 exceptional coffees are complemented by one of the most valuable of all coffee varieties - the Jamaica Blue Mountain.
The effect of this addition on the flavour spectrum of the blend is unbelievable. The finest aromas of tobacco, nutmeg, dark chocolate and a hint of papaya unfold on the palate. This espresso coffee also provides a fine, fruity kick on the tongue. It has a crema that is incomparably dense, hazelnut-coloured and finely striped. Acids and bitter substances have been reduced to a minimum and the caffeine content is very low.
A real recommendation for all those who like a multi-layered flavour. With almost every preparation, new nuances in taste can be discovered.
This Chiaroscuro blend from Mokaflor is perfect for portafilter fully automatic machines, but it also develops its very special aroma in an Aeropress or the V60.
