About Clydesdale Estate
This estate was founded in the late 1700s and was one of the first estates to plant coffee commercially in Jamaica. Because of the outstanding quality of the beans, it has remained an essential coffee-growing region.
Although no longer in operation, the Clydesdale Estate factory, drying patios, and water wheel can still be seen and standing after more than two hundred years. Once a favorite getaway for honeymooners, the Clydesdale Great House, and the factory have been appointed by the Government of Jamaica as a National Heritage site. The farmers in the Clydesdale coffee region maintain the tradition of producing distinguished quality coffee of the Typica variety.
The Clydesdale brand represents coffees from this region and other select regions within the Southern slope of the Blue Mountains, making it the oldest coffee-growing area in the Blue Mountains. In a new decade of excellence, the producers of Clydesdale coffee continue to celebrate the ancient traditions that have made this coffee world-renowned.
