Rocketfuel Coffee Jamaican Blue Mountain – A remarkable coffee that everyone should try.
Rocketfuel Coffee has launched its business with some very high quality coffees. Naturally, one of these is a Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee.
When we think of Jamaica, most of us probably think of beaches and Bob Marley. But coffee?
Jamaica isn’t one of the world’s most prolific growers of coffee, but the coffee they do grow is arguably some of the best available anywhere.
Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is grown only at the eastern end of the Island of Jamaica, north of Kingston.
The mountains reach their highest point at the Blue Mountain Peak, rising 7,402 feet above sea level. This high altitude along with cool, misty weather results in the coffee beans taking longer to mature – up to 10 months from bloom to harvest...twice as long as most growing regions.
Whether it’s the altitude, the weather, the soil or a combination of all three, Blue Mountain Jamaica coffee has a unique taste and is coveted by true coffee lovers.
The Rocketfuel Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee lives up to its credentials...
The folks at Rocketfuel were kind enough to send us a few different coffees to try. As soon as we saw a bag of Jamaican Blue Mountain in the box, we had to try it first.
It is wonderful.
As always, we make a brew and drink it black. We’re not professional cuppers, but we do take our coffee tasting seriously.
The remarkable thing about Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is that it is mild and mellow... but positively bursting with a unique, multi-layered flavor.
It has strength, but without tasting too strong. It is like it manages to pack all the flavors and aromas of a stronger coffee into a series of light, delicate notes.
In fact, that is how we described it between ourselves... like a beautiful melody being played quietly on a concert piano. Precise, harmonious, not too loud and a delight to experience.
That is a long way to say that this really is a unique and wonderful coffee.
We are delighted that Rocketfuel Coffee was generous enough to send us a whole kilo of this coffee, and we look forward to enjoying every cup!
One last thing: Rocketfuel Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is Certified 100% Grade 1. That's important to know, because a lot of "Jamaican Blue Mountain coffees" are actually blends, containing as little as 10% of the real thing. Beware!
