Jamaica Blue Mountain - A rarity sought after all over the world.
"Rare and noble like a" Rolls Royce ", is how the renowned coffee connoisseur and author Leopold Edelbauer speaks about the Blue Mountain Coffee from Jamaica. A rare luxury that even royal houses appreciate.
Blue Mountain Coffee Grade 1.
Only the coffee grown on a 6,000 hectare area can be called "Blue Mountain". Lovingly cared for on small, mostly private plantations. Each individual bean is checked for its ripeness in elaborate manual work. Beans picked by hand and sorted by size. Because only beans with a width of at least 6.76 and at most 7.24 mm are processed to the coveted grade 1. Only beans of a uniform size.
Up to 90% of the annual production is exported to Japan. It is not uncommon for more than $ 10 to be paid there for just one cup of the coveted cult drink.
Only about 900,000 kg of Blue Mountain coffee is harvested in Jamaica every year. This is not even 0.1% of Colombia's harvest. In Europe, Jamaica Blue Mountain Grade 1 coffee is a real rarity.
The incomparably full, slightly sweet aroma, the low coffee house 0.7% and the fine-mild acidity as well as the intense, clear and nutty taste make this specialty coffee an outstanding experience.
Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica (CIB): Sir Nicholas Lawes' first coffee plants were brought to Jamaica in 1725. Here they were planted in the "Blue Mountains" - the highest growing zone in the world. Unlike commercially available roasted coffee, "Blue Mountain" consists of 100% selected Arabica beans.
The Blue Mountains offer the highland coffee of the Arabica variety ideal growth conditions: average temperatures between 20 and 23 ° C, sufficient rainfall and a loose, humus-rich soil. The special feature: Above 700 meters, in the mountains of the foggy mountains, the Arabica grows much more slowly and no longer takes the usual 6 - 8 months. Because of the long ripening time, the coffee beans are larger and more substantial. Only after certification by the CIB experts can the unique green coffee be exported in the 70 kg wooden barrels.

- Store Information
The GLISS Caffee Group is a family business, founded by Michael Gliss, Germany's first coffee sommelier. In the mid-80s, he took his first steps in the world of coffee, when he lived in southern France and learned to love Mediterranean cuisine and wine. We import green coffee beans from the whole word and offer only our own roasts from one of the oldest organic roasting companies in Germany.
We want to show everyone that coffee is more than a "coffee pot with condensed milk".
Only fair and direct imports. The company is certified organic, a slow food supporter, and Michael Gliss serves as North Rhine-Westphalia's official honorary ambassador of regional agricultural and culinary heritage.
With an emphasis on professional expertise, individual single-origin coffees from the best growing areas along with exclusive varieties - such as "Jamaica Blue Mountain Grade No. 1" and "Hawaii Kona" - are offered directly from the coffee bins for individual weighing.
Michael Gliss strives to pass on his coffee experience to amateurs and professionals alike in coffee seminars and workshops held at the GLISS Caffee Contor or hosted on cruise ships, fairs and culinary events in many different countries.
The company also carries a selection of products which complement the coffee experience, such as filters, porcelain and decadent deserts. Worldwide shipping.
