Jamaican Blue Mountain is renowned as one of the world’s finest coffees. Starting in the eighteenth century Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee became known around the world, and its popularity grew prominently in the nineteenth century. It was in 1885 that Cecil Augustus Munn planted his first round of coffee plants on Strawberry Hill and began his family’s history of world class coffee. Disaster struck shortly thereafter, and Cecil’s crop was consumed by a wildfire. This was particularly difficult because coffee plants don’t produce their first crop for 3 to 5 years after being planted. Despite the hardship, Cecil pushed on, and with the support of friends and family he replanted his crop. Only a few years later the world was introduced to Cecil’s coffee.
