Blue Mountain Coffee

Recommended Posts

I've read that Blue Mountain coffee is pretty cheap in Jamaica, and read that brides purchase it there to bring back to the states for their local "receptions". Does anyone know how much small packages cost off the resort? I know it is sold at the giftshops at the hotel, but if I sneak back 75 of these I want a better deal! lol

Has anyone here done this?

I think that's what we bought my FFIL when we were in Jamaica a couple of years ago ... it wasn't cheap and we bought it at a local shop not associated with a resort. It was worth the $$ though! GREAT coffee!!

I bought some when I was there and it is good coffee, but not cheap. Personally, I don't think it is worth it for your AHR b/c people won't really enjoy it and may not even notice since they'll be eating dessert, talking, etc. Buy some and share it with your friends/family at home when they can enjoy expensive quality coffee...

We have a driver take us to his local grocery store when on a daytrip. It is a better price then gift shops, but not cheap. I think we paid $25.00 for a larger package. We then take it home and just drink it on Sunday mornings for something special! "yum"

Crazy I was just watching a show last night and they mentioned this coffee, From what they said if you buy it there it's about $35.00 a bag but in say Japan you pay up to $80.00 I need to try this coffee.. :-)

I think its like anything else, you'll see it for 1 price at one store & see it for another price someplace else. You'll probably have to shop around for it until you find someone who is willing to give you a great deal. I think it was more expensive at the airport, but don't quote me on that! I saw prices starting at $6 & up but that's depending on the size of the bag.

Just one word of caution, if you're planning to bring some home for friends & family, make sure you know what kind they like because they have ground coffee & the coffee beans. I bought beans back last year & my mom didn't have the appropriate coffee maker.

Oh wow! I guess I will just get the smaller bags for those who are traveling to Jamaica with us.

I have a bag of blue mountain blend coffee here that I bought here at T J Maxx but from what I hear the "authentic" great stuff is only found in Jamaica or on the blue mountain website.

One of my guests was crazy about that coffee and found the best price for the smaller bags at a local grocery store. Howeve, when we got to the airport the found a HUGE bag which was cheaper for the amount she would be getting. In the end she was happier with the smaller bags because the larger bags wouldn't stay fresh long enough once they were opened. But it could be an option for your AHR if you plan to repackage them....huh.gifI dunno

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
