Before delving into the history and tradition of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is necessary to review the main types of coffee, which are mostly either robust or Arabica varieties. The difference lies in the type of coffee plant. Robusta coffees are easier to grow – and its production exceeds that of arabica – But they are less palatable and less consistent in quality. Consequently, Robusta coffees are considerably less expensive. Most national coffee blends available through retailers and supermarkets are Robusta coffees. Arabica, moreover, are well known for consistent quality, bold flavor and intense aroma. Premium Coffee sold as single origin coffee – Kenya, Costa Rica, Sumatra, for example – are almost universally of the arabica variety. Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is a coffee Arabica.

Coffee found its way to Jamaica in 1728, when Sir Nicholas Lawes, Governor of Jamaica, imported Arabica seedlings from the island of Martinique. The new home was a natural and coffee production expanded. Unfortunately, production of coffee from Jamaica also has its origin – as with other plantation crops – With the abhorrent practice of slavery.

This extraordinary coffee is grown in the majestic mountains of Jamaica Blue Mountain reaches approximately 7402 meters on the highest peak. The Blue Mountains dominate the eastern third of Jamaica, located between south of Kingston and Port Maria in the north. The upper reaches of the mountains are preserved as forests, while the lower slopes are devoted to coffee production. An incredible mix of rich soil, cool and misty conditions of high rainfall soil drainage and good yields of high quality coffee. The foggy conditions are believed to slow the growth of the coffee, thus producing a denser (and tasty) of beans.

Only the coffee grown in this mountain range is permitted to hold the label of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, which is a certification mark protected worldwide under the administration of the Jamaica Coffee Industry Board. The coffee grown at altitudes between 3,000 and 5,500 feet has traditionally been known as Jamaica Blue Mountain. The coffee grown at elevations between 1,500 and 3,000 feet (910 m) is called Jamaica High Mountain, and coffee grown below 1,500 feet (460 m) of altitude is called Jamaica Supreme or Jamaica Low Mountain.

After a subsequent increase in production of war that threatened to ruin the reputation of the quality of coffee Jamaica, the British colonial government established the Jamaica Coffee Industry Board in 1950 to maintain and standardize the quality and consistency of coffee from Jamaica, in the form world class. At independence, the new Jamaican government continued to invest in the cultivation of coffee. Jamaica's coffee is hand picked and supervised at every stage of pulping drying, shelling, sorting and grading according to the regulations of the Board. Any Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is wet processed. Each export consignment is "cup quality" tested by certified tasters on the staff of the Council Coffee Industry. All shipments of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee must be approved and certified by the Board
