New Jamaica Blue Mountain k-cup pod from Coffee Roasters Jamaica

Coffee Roasters Jamaica (CRJ) led by the Fletcher family started selling its own single-serve k-cup Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee pods in December.
Its aimed at targeting the fastest-growing segment of the US coffee market. Mark Fletcher, chief executive officer, hopes that the k-cups will grow overall revenues at the company already benefiting from a one-third rise in exports year on year. The company has already sold about 100 k-cup cases in the US.
Few local companies sell their own branded single-cup brewed coffee. Its due in part to the focus on selling green beans to Japan and the industry’s sporadic sales to US which heavily demands k-cups.
CRJ and sister company Country Traders Ltd recently got a renewal inspection for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).

Wallenford Estate Jacks up price 30%

Large Jamaica coffee brand WALLENFORD ESTATE hiked coffee rates in order to compensate for currency fluctuations management indicated to Jamaicamocha.

A typical 8ounce bag of beans can now go for over US$30 online (price + shipping).

Wallenford is amongst the most known brands of Jamaica Blue Mountain. So what the company does affects the industry.

The move resulted in all their products from Blue Mountaint to High mountain coffee increasing between 20-30%.

Brand loyalty will be severely tested in coming months based on price rise. The good news is that Jamaicamocha still offers the lowest rates based on our logistic efficiencies.

Cheers
