Jamaican coffee at its energetic best, a vibrant brew produced by a legendary family-owned farm with over 200 years of experience.
Clifton Mount Estate sits 1,200 to 1400 meters above sea level in Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, nestled in a forest that overlooks the Yallahs Valley below. It’s here that the Sharp family grows some of the Caribbean’s finest coffee, one of the last of the Jamaican Great Houses. Founded in 1770, the plantation has a long and rich history of producing top-caliber beans raised in the shade of the farm’s fragrant juniper trees.
The result of the Sharp’s dedication is an unmistakably Jamaican coffee that blends bright acidity with a butter-soft body. Aromas of almond and praline come first, followed by dark chocolate, and energetic lemon zest. Roasting Plant’s Jamaica Blue Mountain - Clifton Mount Estate is a cup that demands to be tasted with your eyes closed, allowing your palate to pick out the delicate traces of cashew and luxuriate in the full-bodied mouthfeel. Then, at the very end, a hint of juniper reminds you of the mountain farm where these beans were raised-and of the centuries-old tradition that has made Clifton Mount a legend in the coffee world for more than 200 years.
