Why does it deserve our mention?  Because of Eric Duchossoy’s constant search for the best coffee plantations in the world, for his careful selection at the source and because each coffee is roasted separately, to make sure each one is at its optimal point.  It is, without a doubt, one of the best places to buy coffee in France, and the Jamaica Blue Mountain that we can buy here is guaranteed to be great.  It comes from the tallest volcanic mountains in Jamaica, which reach 2000 meters above sea level -  these coffees grown at lower altitudes, and hardly have anything in common with those from higher regions that are also called Blue Mountain.  This is a unique, complex, and unequaled coffee in the words of Mr. Duchossoy himself. It is one of the important crus in the world, and, as happens with wine (in Burgundy for example,) only a few establishments can guarantee the quality of the coffee they offer.  Why did we choose a Blue Mountain roasted in France? Because, according to studies of the history of this exclusive coffee, it is documented and proven that the first coffee plants grown here were brought by the French from Martinique.  These plants had been taken from Paris (Jardín des Plantes) as ordered by Louis the XIV, who wanted to avoid having to depend on Arab traders for his supply of coffee plants.  In 1723 the plants arrived in Martinique, but it wasn’t until 1730 that Nicholas Lawes, the governor of Jamaica, ordered that the first coffee plants be introduced in Jamaica.  It is a smooth coffee, with low acid and hints of cocoa, toasted almond, licorice and hazelnut.
