The Blue Mountains serve as the highest peak in Jamaica and provide an ideal climate for growing high-quality coffee. A cool, misty climate with a high level of rainfall precipitates soil that is incredibly moist and fertile. The reduced oxygen at an altitude of over 5,000ft produces a richer coffee bean, with plants growing slower than normal and therefore having a more concentrated flavour.
Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee® is one of the most sought-after coffees in the world – 80% of exports go to Japan – and has a globally protected certification mark. This means that all coffee beans must be monitored and certified by JACRA formerly the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica, who provide a series of quality checks, to confirm authenticity ahead of being shipped abroad.
Jamaican Blue Mountain® coffee is in high demand for a reason. Not only is the product extremely rare; the beans produce a truly delicious, enlivening drinking experience.
Our luxury coffee is very well-balanced in its flavour – not too overpowering – and has the rare gift of having both an excellent body and medium acidity. This means that the coffee is smooth, clean, surprisingly sweet, with a nutty, almost caramel-like finish. There is nothing quite like it.
By investing that little more, you will not just receive a stunningly high quality of coffee that is extremely rare. Purchasing MF Coffee also means directly supporting the family that has, for over 60 years, made their living through growing sensational coffee beans. We believe in buying straight from the source, as opposed to employing third parties. Through buying produce from the area in a way that aligns with fair trade regulations, you will receive a better product along with helping both the farmer and his family and the wider Blue Mountain community.
The cultivation process for coffee beans requires patience and attention to detail. Our family farmers have grown coffee beans in the same traditional ways for decades. Generation to generations has learned the best use practice from the older farmers to produce the best tasting coffee in the world.
Farmers have selected special seeds and places than in individual pots to germinate where special attention is given and there the best seedlings are selected and then transplant to the ground. Where there are carefully planted and nurtured. It will take 2-3 years minimum to moderate bearing and 4-5 years until the coffee plant reaches maturity.
When it’s reaping season, the cherry ripe beans are handpicked from coffee trees, and the berries are then placed in water. In the water, the lighter berries float to the top and the heavier berries sink to the bottom, this process separates the healthier berries from defected ones. The sunken berries are then taken to the pulpier machine which removes the cherry ripe skin from the seeds; afterwards, it is then placed in a tank where it is washed to remove the syrup, a substance which is on the seeds. Then this substance is removed. The wet seeds (parchment) are then placed on mesh trays for natural drying. The drying process can take up to 5 days. Depending on the humidity of the sun with special attention given for each day to ensure the beans are dried properly to achieve the balance of each bean.
The dried beans are then bagged and taken to the storehouse where it remains under specific conditions until it is ready to hull.
Hulling is where the husk or the outer shell of the seeds is removed. After the hulling, the beans are now called green beans and are polished to remove a silver layer on the outer part of the beans.
The beans are then handpicked and sorted out to a specification to identify defected beans.
They are graded according to size grade 1, 2, 3 and Pea Berry.
Beans are then loaded into wooden barrels and then taken to JACRA formerly coffee board for final inspection and then labelled with 100 per cent Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee on a wooden barrel
The Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica mandates a series of very rigorous checks ahead of providing a certificate that confirms the imported coffee can be sold as official Jamaican Blue Mountain® Coffee. Prior to these checks, all beans are sifted through carefully to ensure that only the best beans are selected. We use a special, slightly smaller barrel in which to transport the coffee beans to our roasting factory in the UK, ensuring that their quality is not compromised in any way.
Before receiving all Jamaican imports based in Kent, our coffee beans are also assessed and signed off by the Jamaica Agricultural Commodities Regulatory Authority (JACRA).
All green coffee beans are stored in dry, cool conditions in our UK factory. The roasting process is geared towards producing a light to medium profile, which helps to retain the natural flavour of our premium coffee. We use high-tech roasting equipment, employing a differently sized roasting machine for small and large orders. Our roasting team has been in the business for many years and pay extremely close attention to every last detail.
As providers of Jamaican imports based in Kent, quality control is our number one priority, and this notion is reflected in our shipping process. If you make an order before 5 pm we will roast, package and then ship to your location by the following day, guaranteeing that no freshness or potency is lost during the process of getting our Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee® from Belfast to wherever you are in the UK or beyond.
Stewart belongs to the third generation of coffee farmers from his family and is now taking the business a step further through taking an active role in the production. He possesses multi-generational knowledge of the growing process and has a special relationship with the land. The farm incorporates six plots, some in the shaded forest and some at a higher altitude, with each different area producing a different taste.
Education is not free in Jamaica. Many pupils struggle when it comes to affording the necessary equipment for proper learning. That is why we have partnered with the Galilee Basic School, situated on Epping Farm in the same Penlyne District Blue Mountain region, to help more children receive a proper education – something only possible when there is an adequate provision of textbooks, clothing and stationary equipment. We also provide several fun activities for the pupils.
