Blue Mountain Coffee Bean Attributes
Blue Mountain Coffee is exclusively made from the Arabica Bean. The Arabica bean is more fragile to grow but is considered more flavorful and has less caffeine than the Robusta Bean grown in many parts of the world. As a result of the ample cloud cover, mountain shade, altitude, soil minerals, and rainfall where the blue mountain coffee is grown, the berries stay much longer on the tree than other coffees, generally about three to four months longer. This seems to give the bean a richer and wider flavor which is why Blue Mountain Coffee is coveted by coffee drinkers around the world.
