Amber Estate Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is a premium estate brand. Maintaining quality and freshness is of utmost importance. After pulping and drying, our coffee is rested for eight to twelve weeks in specially constructed silos of cured wolmanized pine.
After the beans are selected by bean size, density, color and appearance, the coffee is roasted in batches. These beans are then subjected to the final test - the cup. Recognized cuppers use their sensitive palettes to select the very best, which are then given the classification Jamaican Blue Mountain.
The coffee is then vacuum-sealed and placed in 8oz.. bags with one way valves which further preserves freshness. Before shipment, the Jamaica Coffee Industry Board Quality Assurance team conducts a random inspection. Amber Estate coffee is shipped only with the qualified approval of the Coffee Industry Board. Ambert Estate coffee is origin roasted. They roast and package all of their Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee in Jamaica where Jamaican law prohibits the importation of green coffee by the roaster.
