Who does not like Blue Mountain? After my first experience of this Jamaican type of coffee I felt in love in it and everyone I know who hears the name actually recognises it (which of course only proves my initial ignorance, but is also the sign of quality). My son's friend's dad has family in the country of its origin and at the back on my head I have already started to plan a trip to the island. I am also growing really interested in nairobi and the way people drink coffee there. Again today I had a visitor with whom I was talking about social media and other types of marketing but when mentioned this particular coffee heard a lovely story of children who enjoyed Mlue Mountain beans at the home because their dad had a friend in Nairobi. I like to see people's faces when they desctibe their childhood memories, specially related to a particular drink or type of food. It's as if they had those scents and tastes surrounding them just now, they smile with their eyes!
But for now I am here, in the UK and while I am preparing my trip to Nairobi (tickets booked today) I am enjoying a pack of Nairobi Blue Mountain suggested to me by Amazon's kind recommendations and sold by Nairobi Coffee and Tea Company;)
If you haven't tried it yet Blue Mountain is a type of coffee which is mild and clean, not sour whatsoever so it's a great choice for longer sit down with a friend. It's delicious, sublime almost so while you both talk you might forget yourself in the coffee a bit, but generally it is a great and - let's face it - safe choice for those who are picky about their cuppa. I personally prefer stronger types of beans (I am at the beginning of my journay so I think it might have something to do with liking dark chocolate and red dry wine?) but I really like Blue Mountain coffee beans for "daily cup of coffee", not so much for the first shot of coffeine I use to wake up in the morning. My only problem with this coffee is the fact that I drink too much of it if I have it at home!;)
