hmm... sounds dangerously like a commercial post to me.

If I were a moderator, I would be tempted to 'ping' this one!

LOL!!

i used to work at one of there stores!
i was even lucky enough to have the man who made there training videos make me a shot of there Blue Mountain and yeah it was good for franchise coffee but not worth the $5.80 a cup they charge (or something like $18 for 250g of beans)

i feel a bit bad for my boss but whenever some one asked me for a bag of those beans i would tell them exactly what i thought of it and point them in FC's direction.


ohh and yeah like ACG said this reeks of an add and i do know that recently Jamaica Blue have been going to great lengths to sell there blue mountain (even offering people the chance to win an "espresso" machine)


Dangerously under caffeinated.

I once forked out about five bucks for a cup of coffee made from Jamaican Blue coffee beans, from a cafe which shall remain nameless.

The beans were on display in a plastic cup on top of the display cabinet, on a soaringly hot day, and the guy behind the counter tipped these beans into his grinder, and proceeded  to grind away, producing a cup of undrinkable swill....

Needles to say I asked for my money back!

Well, Jamaica Blue Mountain Wallenford Estate coffee has not that I know of, actually been "un"available so I dont understand the context of the post (that it is "now available").

We have ordered it in from time to time, taken pre roast orders (this can take a few weeks because the demand & turnover are small due to the cost), and when there are enough orders to warrant roasting up a batch we do so...

In the famous words of a past pollie...please explain?

Regardz,
FC.

Hi guys - sorry, have been crazy working on getting the summer issue to the printer before Christmas, so you're right, i missed this one... however, it looks like you've given it the treatment it deserves, so will now leave it up!

best

And FC, I remember the last time you had some JBM in! Fantastic stuff.

Can someone explain what the OP means by "indicate your interest here"?  hmmm
