About Coffee Roasters
At Coffee Roasters of Jamaica, we’ve been successfully marketing Jamaica Blue Mountain® coffee for over sixteen years. I decided to establish Country Traders Limited the early nineties, after marketing Jablum coffee to the tourist trade on Jamaica’s north coast. I have always had a passion for coffee and excellence and decided to open my own Roastery where my vision of creating a perfect blend could come to life. I went to the Jamaican Coffee Industry Board for training as a cupper, so that along with our senior cupper - David K. Evans (one of Jamaica’s first and finest cuppers sent by Coffee Industry Board for training in England in 1991, and still actively cupping at the age of 86), so that I would be able to play an active role in maintaining the quality of our products.
As our business grew, my father, John Fletcher, retired from Salada Foods – one of the country’s largest coffee manufacturing companies. With his knowledge of manufacturing, having run Salada for many successful years and nowhere near ready for retirement, he was delighted to join the Coffee Roasters team. Usually the father starts the business and invites the children to join the company – this time it was the other way around. Regardless of how it began, my Dad and I make a great team.
We’re a family-run business, where we aim for quick and reliable service, placing our coffee in your hands within a maximum of three weeks (for orders of more than 10lbs), and smaller orders as little as two to three days. We know that our success depends entirely on maintaining our customer’s confidence in the quality of our products, so we pay close attention to your coffee every step of the way, through purchasing, cupping, roasting, packaging and delivery. Coffee Roasters of Jamaica supplies approximately 2000 lbs. of coffee every week to the Jamaican local market and tourism industry. We maintain good relationships with our coffee farmers to ensure the highest quality beans. All our coffee is Vacuum-packed in high-quality foil bags which gives maximum protection against oxidation (staling).
Jamaica produces about 4 million lbs of coffee beans each year, two thirds of which is Blue Mountain® coffee. Almost 90% of Jamaica’s coffee exports go to Japan so local quantities are quite small. When you buy coffee from Coffee Roasters of Jamaica you are assured of getting 100% Jamaican coffee – because that is the only coffee we handle. You’re also assured of getting the best value for your money – no middlemen, no mixed blends, no added extra costs.
