First ever barrel of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee arrives in Dubai

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, June 19 - 2008 @ 11:41

This comes on the back of a series of ‘first’s’ for the roastery which includes providing the world’s most expensive coffee, served at Jumeirah Emirates Towers and the provider of Fairtrade coffee to many of Dubai’s outlets.

Justin Clarke, CEO and founder of the Orbis Coffee Roastery explained, “We have been continually expanding our fine coffee range but the Jamaican Blue Mountain represents the pinnacle of all the coffees so far.

For each restaurant or hotel we create a unique menu so we are dealing direct with individual farmers for very high quality beans in small quantities.

Recent ‘finds’ have included the Hawaii Kona Extra Fancy and an intense chocolaty Arabica bean from the western Highlands of Cameroon.”

The Jamaican coffee which originated from the Clydesdale Estate in the heart of the Blue Mountain region is known for its exceptionally sweet and mild aromas.

It has been exported in wooden barrels since it was originally shipped to Europe back in the seventeenth century.

The coffee is destined for just a few exclusive outlets in Dubai including the Monarch Hotel.
