ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Nestled in a ravine of tropical splendor, bordered by meandering rivers of crystal clear waters and perched on an incline between 2000 to 3000 feet above sea level, stands the beautiful Blue Baron Estate – a spread of 138 acres of ideal Blue Mountain coffee land.
This property which is a part of the larger Cedarhurst lands situated high up in the Buff Bay valley of Portland, has for decades produced an excellent quality Blue Mountain Coffee due to the unique combination of its enriched soils and superb climatic conditions.
Blue Baron Estate is owned by the Minott family of Mandeville, Jamaica – a family that are professionals in growing and processing of coffee with an established business of over 75 years of existence.
Shaded in pristine rows and interspersed between clumps of natural tropical forest, is planted approximately 60 acres of the world’s finest coffee. The Blue Mountain’s lingering clouds provide a natural buffer for the luscious, green coffee trees, offering shade from the sun’s unrelenting rays; the low ambient temperature and relative humidity induced by the cloud cover, contributes to the slow maturation of the coffee bean, enhancing the unique fineness of its quality.
Ripe cherries are lovingly handpicked by crews of trained harvesters, with each tree revisited up to 10 times over the harvesting period. The harvested cherries are pulped and fermented using natural spring water, to further guarantee the quality. The beans are then; naturally dried on barbeques, cured, hulled and then carefully inspected for quality before being tested and packaged for export.
