Just like to follow up the topic about Jamaica Blue mountain.
I read some article about no all the bean label as "Jamaica Blue mountain" really come from Jamaica Blue mountain.
Some of them blend part with JBM, some just tasted close to JBM (prob central American origin).
Few days ago, I just chat with one of my friend about the JBM is pretty expensive one.
Its around 80 bucks per kilo compared to other good and famous one only 15-20 bucks per kilo.
Two days ago, I received a gift from him as the celebration of I finish my exit-seminar of my study.
Its a pre-roast one, but been told only 1-2 weeks old.
I have tried four different set up for the shots. Two espresso, two with cappuccino.
I have to say, they are not as great as I image. (or I did not have a expert's palate).
Some cocoa/chocolate after mouth flavour like El Salvador and Tanzania in my experience.
Balanced body and aromas...
But...I wont pay 19 bucks for 100 gram. (four times more expensive than other average one).
It is from www.jamaicablue.com.au
I have read their website, it seems like they are 100% JBM single origin.
I might go to the local shop to try their pro machine made.
At least good news is their 2011 Barista champion (only internal of their franchise) is at our city (castletown, Townsville).
I might have the chance to taste the champion made JBM coffee^^
