More Details

Roast Level: Medium Dark
Medium-dark or Vienna roast coffee features a deeper, richer flavor profile due to its longer roasting time. When selecting a Vienna roast, look for a lower acidity, bolder body, and flavors with dark chocolate, caramel, toasted nut notes, and mild smokiness.
Bean Source Country: Jamaica
Jamaican coffee, particularly the renowned Blue Mountain variety, is celebrated for its exceptional quality, smooth taste, and bright acidity. Grown in the high elevations of the Blue Mountains, these beans, usually the Typica varietal of Arabica, exhibits a well-balanced flavor profile featuring mild sweetness, floral notes, and a hint of nuttiness. Combining rich volcanic soil and abundant rainfall contributes to Jamaican coffee's unique characteristics and prestige.
Bean Source Region: Blue Mountains
Jamaica's Blue Mountains boast a majestic and diverse terrain that creates an ideal environment for coffee cultivation. The range, which spans across the eastern portion of the island, is characterized by its steep slopes, dense forests, and misty, cloud-covered peaks that can reach elevations of over 7,400 feet. The mountainous terrain has rich, well-drained volcanic soil, which imparts a distinctive minerality. The high elevation, combined with cool yet humid conditions, results in a slow maturation of the coffee cherries, allowing for the development of complex flavors and a smooth, mild acidity. Ample natural shade provided by the surrounding forests and the consistent rainfall and temperate climate further contribute. As a result, Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee has a smooth and well-balanced flavor profile, characterized by mild acidity, a clean and bright taste with notes of chocolate, nuttiness, and floral undertones, culminating in a long, satisfying finish.
Espresso
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
