Pure Kenya Blue Mountain
- Pumphreys Coffee
- Calculated at Checkout
Grown from Jamaican Blue Mountain stock on the coffee growing slopes of Kenya. Kenya Blue mountain has the appearance of the long Jamaican bean and much of the desirable flavour which is enhanced by a touch of traditional Kenyan acidity and aromatics from the rich volcanic soils.
Kenya is one of the most scenically beautiful countries on the African continent, boasting white sandy beaches on the Indian Ocean, lush highlands, desert, savannah and fertile lowlands. The 35 million or so people who inhabit the country are made up of different tribal groups with the Kikuyu currently the dominant group in both commerce and politics. Politically, high levels of corruption have hampered Kenya’s post-colonial efforts to capitalise on its abundant natural resources.
A good Kenyan is one of the finest coffees available on the market, due to its intensity of body and fruitiness (blackcurrant and grapefruit). In recent years, perhaps due to the collapse in world coffee prices as well as seasonal factors, there has been an overall decline in the availability of such high quality coffee. The bulk of production is on small to medium sized farms, fully washed on site and sun dried on trestles in the sun. Coffee is graded according to size and sold in lots at the weekly auction. There are two harvests each year, the main crop is picked between October and December and the secondary crop (fly crop) picked between June and August.

This coffee arrived promptly. Was freshly roasted and had a scintillating taste. I have been a customer for year in Grainger Market. But my first online purchase. It is a very simple process to order. Great variety available. Some of the best coffee you will ever taste.
A wonderful blend. Our family favourite
Wonderful fresh full bodied flavours with the distinctive taste of Blue Mountain Coffee
What can you say, why pay more for Blue Mountain Coffee when this is available. A friend insists on this only when visiting. That says it all.
Superb roast. Brilliant service from pumphreys
