Various methods of coffee makers are available to help you make a great cup of coffee. Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee recommends coffee be brewed with water that is 90.6 to 93.3 degrees C. The water should sit in the coffee for four to six minutes. The best way to do this is with a French press, but that method can be time-consuming. Most people use a drip coffee maker in their homes for ease of use.

  1. 1

    Grind fresh Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee beans. Use 2 tbsp of whole beans for each 227gr cup of coffee you intend to brew. A burr grinder is the best kind because it gives consistent sized granules. Grind it on a coarse setting.

  2. 2

    Wet a paper drip coffee maker filter and put it in the coffee basket. This removes some of the paper taste from your coffee.

  3. 3

    Place the ground coffee into the paper filter. Use a spoon to scoop out any that remain in the bottom of the grinder.

  4. 4

    Fill the water receptacle in the drip coffee maker with cold, filtered or bottled water up to the line for the amount of coffee you intend to brew. Your tap water may have chemicals that will alter the taste of your coffee.

  5. 5

    Turn the coffee maker on. When it is done brewing, immediately transfer the hot coffee to an insulated carafe. If allowed to sit on the hotplate, the coffee will continue to cook and it will acquire a burnt taste.

Tips and warnings

  • Store your Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee in a cool cabinet, but not over the stove. Do not store it in the fridge or freezer.
