RSW Estates, Our Third Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee

We are very pleased to announce the addition of a third estate coffee from the famous Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee region. This third estate coffee is from RSW Estates, a partnership of three small family-owned properties – Resource Coffee Farm, Sherwood Forest, and Whitfield Farm. These venerable properties have been producing coffee since the late 1700’s.

Resource Farm - Jamaica Blue MountainsThe coffee beans from these farms are exceptional. Generally these proprietors have less land under cultivation than at the peak of production of these estates; trees are concentrated only in prime growing locations. The high altitudes of these particular farms in the Jamaica Blue Mountains mean longer maturation and some of the latest harvests in the region, giving the beans time to develop exceptional flavor.

Sherwood Coffee Works - Drying Coffee The RSW Estates Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is processed by Sherwood Coffee Works, which processes exclusively the coffee from the three farms. Sherwood uses the traditional fermentation method of removing mucilage, sun dries the coffee, and uses state of the art equipment to maintain the coffee at the proper temperature and humidity prior to export.

This third estate coffee from the Jamaican Blue Mountains makes J. Martinez & Company unique in offering not just one 100% certified Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, but three. In addition to the RSW Estates this specialty roaster offers Wallenford Estate and Clifton Mount Estate.
