I couldn't agree more about the Blue Mountain Dan. I never gave the
hurricane a thought but it makes sense. I'll give your recommendation a try
next order DEC. 1.

Dana, had I friends who owned a microroasterie, I would probably buy from them, too. Beings as I do not and as I have roasted coffee and know the good stuff, I get it from the place I do because it is good quality and really inexpensive.
Unfortunately, since the hurricaine of about a dozen years ago, the Jamaican Blue Mountain has not yet returned to its greatness. Even the Wallingford estate is not back to par, but hopefully, in a few years, they will be back. If you want a coffee that is on par with the older gem quality blue mountain, Puerto Rican Yauco Selecto is a good choice, and it usually is only about $12/pound.
