Coffee lovers, have you heard of the famous Blue Mountain Coffee from Jamaica?  If not, you absolutely need to try it! 

We are beyond obsessed with this delectable coffee bean with its perfectly mild and creamy taste. It makes a great choice if you’re searching for the perfect coffee gifts for any of the coffee connoisseurs in your life. We love it so much that we’ve added it to our much-loved coffee hampers.

Read on to find out a little more about where this popular coffee bean comes from, and what exactly makes it so great.


Mellow & Mild

Hailing from the Blue Mountain region in Jamaica, this coffee is well known for not being bitter and having a deliciously mild taste.  It is hugely popular in Japan, with more than 80% of it being exported there. The beans are most commonly used for brewed coffee.

The coffee liqueur company Tia Maria also use these beans as their flavour base.

If you’re keen to travel to the region and taste the fresh Blue Mountain coffee beans, you’ll find them located between Port Antonio and Kingston. The Blue Mountains are some of the tallest mountains in the Caribbean region. They rise up to a height of 7,402 feet (2,256 metres)

Perfect Growing Conditions

Climate conditions are ideal for coffee cultivation in the Blue Mountain region. There’s a high level of rainfall and temperatures are generally quite cool.  The rich soils offers the perfect level of drainage. The weather and the soil combined make this region truly ideal for the production of these glorious coffee beans.   

Official Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee comes with a certification mark that is globally protected and issued by the Jamaican Coffee Industry Board. So you can rest assured of the authenticity of the product if it includes this certification. It has also been done to try and prevent traders from selling poor quality beans and passing them off as hailing from this region.  The Coffee Industry Board also monitors the cultivation of the growth of the beans.

Why do people love chocolate?
Why do people love chocolate?

Chocolate is made from the beans of the tropical cacao tree. Most of these trees are grown in Western Africa where the tropical climate is perfect for cacao beans to flourish. But why is chocolate so addictively delicious? The answer may be more complex than you realise.

We at the Hamper Lounge have hand picked a wide range of gifts including some exquisitely delicious chocolate hamper selections.

The chemistry of chocolate actually plays a huge part in why it is so well-loved and delicious. There are a few hundred chemicals within your typical bar but the most important ones are theobromine, anandamide and caffeine. Theobromine and caffeine are stimulants and, although they only appear in miniscule amounts, it’s enough to give chocolate that addictive feel which means you can never just have one square! Feeling chocolatey yet? Try our scrumptious ‘I Love Chocolate Mini Box’ to get your chocolate fix or send to a chocolate-obsessed friend today.
