BUNAO is specialized in importing and distributing Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee™ from ONE farm, from ONE farmer, sustainably and organically grown.
On the highest farm in St. Thomas at an elevation of 1240m in the dreamy Blue Mountains grows our organically cultivated Arabica Coffee (type; Typica and Geisha). The mist in the Blue Mountains has resulted in the unique climate found there in which the coffee cherries grow at a noticeably slower pace. The longer ripening time results in a special aroma. The high location of the farm gives our Jamaica Blue Mountain™ an unparalleled delicious taste.
Whilst the large Blue Mountain coffee factories indiscriminately buy up coffee from, at times, conventional, dunging coffee farmers in the area, our small farmer has been dedicated to his small farm for years and farms it unconventionally with natural organic fertilizer. He can be seen as a rarity among the rarities: an independent 100% sustainable producing small farmer, a lone wolf, who lives according to his ideals, and who is a great inspiration for many people, including ourselves. He takes meticulous care that monocultures do not occur and plants a lot of fruit trees between the coffee bushes. After a lot of work his farm was licensed as a Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee Farm in 2013. A milestone, as since this point it has been possible to enjoy his coffee in other countries too.

exquisite richness, velvety full character and a soft, smooth aroma with lack of bitterness and a sweet, nutty note
I literally got stucked at the farm when I was travelling trough Jamaica in 2011. After a few days of coffee cherries picking for fun I was able to got to know Jah B. The way in which he lives and how his way of life flows into his coffee was immediately fascinating and I felt a call to support him. When in 2013 we were finally able to bring the coffee to Berlin, once Jah B had received his exporter license, which had taken a lot of work, I focused to the green coffee trading. I keep a close contact to Jah B and visit the farm regularly.
