Background Details

Jamaica Blue Mountain Grade 1 Clydesdale Estate 30kg Barrel is sourced from family-owned farms located near the Saint Andrew parish nestled in the Grand Ridge of the Blue Mountains, Jamaica. 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, employees 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.
