Blind Assessment: Round, deeply sweet. Brown sugar, roasted cacao nib, vanilla, cedar, a hint of flowers in aroma and cup. Round, straightforward acidity; velvety mouthfeel. Sweet and cocoa-toned in the short finish; sweet but fades a bit in the long.
Notes: Blue Mountain, grown in the lush, lovely mountains to the northeast of Kingston, Jamaica, is one of the world’s best-known coffees and also one of the most expensive. Stoneleigh Estates farms, processes, roasts and distributes exclusively 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.
Who Should Drink It: Those who value the sweetness, full mouthfeel and sweet cocoa notes that made this celebrated origin famous.
