Ok, So there the coffee festival planned for the first weekend in March. Interested , well it depends on whether coffee is your love or your money-muse. The first day, March 1 is business Development workshops For Farmers.
Don’t let that deter you. It’s really the perfect day for overseas and locals roasters and traders who want to meet with local farmers and processors. After all we all want the access to the holy grail–Green beans. You can barter with the farmers or play hard ball with the licensed processors. Last year like this year, the farmer workshops happened in the hills of the blue mountains.
So those who need the best beans can take a visit. I doubt there’s an entrance fee like the festival itself on Saturday and Sunday at J$1,500 or about $12 USD.
Some coffee companies in the island are innovating. They want to expand the definition of great coffee to include a more fruity taste profile instead of preponderance of chocolate tones. No one will go on the record but expect options that are bursting with fruit to hit shelves within the medium term.
Guatemala coffee probably the closest in taste profile to Jamaica blue mountain. Click to consider affordable coffee.
OK, you know you are large when websites are putting your work on coffee mugs. This ‘laugh now chimp’ was stenciled in various parts of the UK but now has made its way to a coffee mug hahah.
The Banksy Laugh Now Chimp coffee mug shows a dejected chimpanzee wearing a billboard around its neck with the slogan “Laugh now, but one day we’ll be in charge”. Maybe people buying the mug will see it miraculously shatter before their eyes.
I wonder if Banksy likes Jamaica Blue Mountain in his cup.
Consumers are searching for Jamaica black castor oil even more than Jamaica blue mountain.
For each person searching for Jamaica coffee there’s about five searching for oil.
What can I say we love the checkered look
A series of recipes for cold coffee lovers. Hmmmmm
