An interesting fact though, is that Jamaicans are traditionally tea drinkers. So most of the coffee is for export and is sold at really high prices given that the Blue Mountain plantations are limited. Most of the coffee from Craighton Estate is exported to the family company in Japan and only a handful is on sale (We obviously got our stock!!)
In fact, even in Jamaican shops you would only get the Jamaican Blend (up to 20% Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee) in the retail stores.
So, does it match it's reputation? YES!! We loved the coffee and the experience as a whole in Craighton Estate. And we would definitely recommend coffee lovers (& non-coffee drinkers) to add this to your must-do list when in Jamaica!
P.S. The coffee is best had black (though one can add some milk or cream to their cup). Also, Jamaican Rum Cake is a FABULOUS accompaniment with this coffee!!
