About this event

Truly a special event, join Mr. Norman Grant, a certified coffee taster with Jablum Jamaica Limited and Mavis Bank Coffee Factory for a virtual tasting event celebrating Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.

In this 60-minute virtual seminar, coffee authority Mr. Grant will join us from Jamaica to educate seminar participants about Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee—what it is, why it is so desirable, how it is created, and best brewing methods. Attendees will be guided through a tutored-tasting of four different coffees.

All participants will receive fresh-roasted samples of four varieties of specialty Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee prior to the event—including Gold, Classic, True Brew, and Premium Blend.
