Coffee Roasters of Jamaica

Country Traders Limited

Country Traders Limited has been in the coffee business since 1992 and our primary business over the last 27 years has been the roasting and distribution of Jamaica Blue Mountain and other Jamaican coffee in both the local and export markets. With the aim to improve the consistency of supply and quality of raw material for our roasting business, Country Traders Ltd. purchases directly from small and medium sized farmers throughout the Blue Mountains that adhere to best practices and are located above 4000 feet in the central Blue Mountain areas. These higher regions are much cooler and therefore promote the slow growth of the bean, allowing it time to develop a deeper, more intense flavor.

Country Traders’ reputation is built upon paying close attention to the coffee every step of the way, through purchasing, cupping, roasting, packaging, and delivery.

Their brands are:
Coffee Roasters of Jamaica’ – Jamaica Blue Mountain roasted coffee
Country Traders Limited’ – Jamaica Blue Mountain premium green beans
