History of Coffee in Jamaica

Origin of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee dates back to 1723 when King Louis XV of France sent three coffee plants to Martinique a fertile island 1900 kilometers SW of Jamaica. Five years later in 1728 the governor of Jamaica Sir Nicholas Lawes was gifted one of the coffee plants by Governor of Martinique. This one Arabica coffee plant was nurtured for over nine years and plantation was born.

Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee

Only coffee grown in the legally defined Blue Mountain range can be certified as Blue Mountain Coffee. It is not High Mountain Coffee, or Jamaican Coffee, or a blend containing Blue Mountain, it is 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain® Coffee. Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is regarded as a gourmet product and, as such, does not trade on the Commodities Exchanges in New York or London.
