A remarkable environment that produces exceptional coffee
Located in the heart of the Jamaican Blue Mountains, Founded by Dr. Colin McClarty in the late 1700s, the Clydesdale Estate was one of the first to plant coffee in this highland region. Other growers followed when they saw the excellence of the coffee produced in the Clydesdale area.
Today, the area is still renowned for the incomparable quality of its coffee beans in Jamaica. The Clydesdale region is of an elevation of 3500 to 4000 feet. Its microclimate, hot during the day and colder at night, paired with loam and volcanic soil, creates a distinctive and well-balanced cup of coffee.
Today, this region is compounded by independent small-holding coffee farmers who regroup their effort and process their green coffee beans under the Clydesdale brand.
This coffee is processed at the Blue Mountain® Coffee Factory in Kingston for maximum quality output. Clydesdale's coffee is supplied in green beans worldwide to authorized Jamaica Blue Moutain® coffee distributors.
