Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee returned to The Kaffeeklatsch after being absent for many years. Jamaica Blue Mountain Grade 1 from the Clydesdale Estate is packed in 30kg barrels. This fabled coffee has notes of tamarind, chocolate and orange and is exceptionally smooth. Coffee produced in the Jamaican Blue Mountains has a protected designation of origin (PDO) because of the renowned reputation of Blue Mountain coffee.
Coffee is intercropped with banana, Inga, mango and many other shade trees. The Clydesdale wet-mill is the most modern in Jamaica with technology to recycle and treat water before returning it to the environment. The dry mill, located in an economically underprivileged part of Kingston, employs over 600 women to hand sort coffee. In addition to the social impact from stable employment, funds are also invested in projects to support over 30 schools.
