Tasting Notes

Not your parents Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee! A powerful, full-bodied cup. Apricot, toasted coconut, and brown sugar in the cup. A coating finish with hints of dark chocolate.


Background

Gonzalo Hernandez likes to brag that he’s amassed the world’s largest private collection of coffees trees: more than two hundred species, botanical varieties, mutations and cultivars that grow on his exotic Costa Rican “coffee garden”, Coffea Diversa. His collection includes some of the rarest in the world -- coffees many have neither heard of nor tasted.

Of each variety Gonzalo has only a few trees, and his coffees are sold in small 10 kilogram bags to knowledgeable roasters and friends around the world, first come, first serve. We first visited Coffea Diversa and met Gonzalo 11 years ago, and we’ve been looking forward to sharing these ever since.

A few years ago he started a farm in Jamaica's Blue Mountains in partnership with the Sharp Family of Clifton Mount Estate, growing a selection of his best cupping varieties from the Costa Rica farm. This farm is finally starting to produce and Paradise is one of the first roasters in the world to have an opportunity to share these coffees. This year we purchased some of the Rume Sudan variety. Extremely limited, we have just 20Lb to offer.

Bourbon Rey is a mutation of the bourbon variety discovered on Coffea Diversa farm in Biollet Costa Rica that produces giant seeds. Similar in size and cup profile to the Typica Mutant Maragogype and hybrids developed from that variety such as Pacamara and Maracaturra. We have tasted several varieties from their Jamaica farm over several harvest seasons now, and the Bourbon Rey is consistently among our top picks year after year.

 

In 2019 we sent the first harvest of this variety in Jamaica to Coffee Review which scored 93 points. Their Highest score ever for a Jamaican Coffee!
