Once upon a time, there was a small island called Jamaica, a blue mountain was located here. Certainly, it was given this name not because it is in blue color but being shined the blue sunshine from Caribbean sea. The blue color was quite unforgettable, not only because the blue era of Picasso, but also the pleasing flavor of blue mountain coffee. There's a saying- less is more. For the past decades, the reason that blue mountain coffee can remain its status of top coffee is related to the policy of limiting producing to maintain the best quality in local government. Hence, blue mountain coffee is like the masterpiece of Picasso, with good-looking and good taste but also with high price.
Generally, the most top-quality blue mountain coffee beans don't come into market. Most of them are booked by royalty and wealthy men. And the one come into market, according to the statistics of international coffee organization website, 90% of them reach Japan, the rest of them reach at the European and American market.
coffee valve find that coffee shops have sprung up with rapid pace in recent years, and blue mountain coffee becomes the pursuing target of coffee lovers. However, a phenomenon that people are lack of the relative specialized knowledge of coffee makes the merchants find the good opportunity of promoting rare coffee using the beautiful legend. They also promote that the coffee owns fantastic taste to raise the price.
On the other side, I believe that most domestic coffee lovers don't have the ability of distinguishing the differences of various coffees. Therefore, coffee valve reminds you of being careful: Despite you pay much money, the cup of coffee on your hand may not be the real blue mountain coffee.
Sincere suggestion: save your money to buy better coffee machine and coffee beans!
