Jamaica Coffee Festival 2019

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.

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.

In this blog I will explore one of these principles every week.  Starting from the beginning of what we need to do first to when we have made it and what to do then.

This week we will start at the beginning.
