THE ORIGIN OF OUR JAMAICA BLUE MOUNTAIN COFFEE
Our Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee comes from the Clydesdale farm;
Clydesdale is a renowned coffee growing region located in the parish of St. Andrew - formerly the parish of Port Royal. It is nestled in the Grand Ridge which is home to Jamaica’s largest National Park and Forest reserve. The Clydesdale coffee region is located at the very center of the Blue Mountain coffee area...
HISTORY OF THE FARM
Clydesdale Estate was founded in the late 1700s by Dr. Colin McClarty, a British national who came to Jamaica for what he thought would be a short visit but fell in love with the country and decided to stay. It was one of the first estates to plant coffee commercially in Jamaica. Following Dr. McClarty’s example and realizing the excellent quality coffee produced in this area, other farmers ventured into coffee production in the vicinity of Clydesdale Estate.
It is from these beginnings that the Clydesdale coffee region evolved. Clydesdale Estate Coffee was first exported in the late 1700’s and because of the exceptional quality of the beans, it has remained an important coffee growing region since.
