So you’re ready to sell the cow and buy a barrel of JBM; why choose Mavis Bank Coffee Factory instead of one of the other mills? Well, Mavis Bank has history (opened in 1920, and the family that started it has been growing coffee on Blue Mountain since 1885. MBCF is one of the two largest mills in Jamaica (you can guess the name of the other, and between the two they account for at least 75% of all certified Blue Mountain coffee); what is notable is that MBCF is located about 3000 feet above sea level, not at sea level down in Kingston, so the coffee isn’t subject to the fading and cup degradation we see in samples from other mills. Most of Mavis Bank’s coffee goes to Japan, so we are fortunate to have some on our offering list. Smooth, mild, sweet, good body, a bit floral.
