Firstly we only sell 100% Blue Mountain that can be verified and traced back to where it came from. We won't sell you a blend of it or something that isn't. So when you compare our price for this coffee with others ask why others are cheaper.

The story of Blue Mountain for me is a sad one. A once truly great coffee that got over produced over hyped and sadly doesn't live up to its reputation on the whole. With most of the good stuff going to Japan (over 70% of all Blue Mountain grown does so) its tough. But fortunately due partly I guess old colonial links and partly due to the sole UK importer having some fine cupping skills we are able to offer a blue mountain that delivers.

For me it still remains a little of a n experience coffee, and for me its not a high scorer on the cupping table but that's because of what it is. The reason it became so popular that it was ok at everything. Its balanced its smooth its not too acidic its not too bland its adequate. Rarely does something fetch a huge premium for being ok but Blue Mountain does.

It's a balanced, classic coffee with rich flavour, full body, and a smooth interesting acidity. Not an everyday drink, but an experience that if you haven't done yet you must. In the cup expect sweetness with a hints of pine and sandalwood. This is an exquisite cup that's very special. This is a Coffee event.
