Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale History and Processing: Clydesdale is a renowned coffee growing region located in St. Andrew's parish - formerly the parish of Port Royal - at an average altitude of 1000 meters. It is nestled in the Grand Ridge which is home to Jamaica’s largest National Park and Forest reserve. The Clydesdale coffee region is located at the very center of the Blue Mountain coffee area, which is why we can say it is located in “the Heart of the Blue Mountains”. The Clydesdale Estate was founded in the late 1700s ... by Dr. Colin McClarty, a British national who came to Jamaica for what he thought would be a short visit, but fell in love with the country and decided to stay. This was one of the first estates to plant coffee commercially in Jamaica. Following Dr. McClarty’s example and realizing the excellent quality coffee produced in this area, other farmers ventured into coffee production in the vicinity of Clydesdale Estate. It is from these beginnings that the Clydesdale coffee region evolved. Clydesdale Estate Coffee was first exported in the late 1700s and because of the exceptional quality of the beans, has remained an important coffee growing region since. Today, the Clydesdale Coffee Estate, although no longer in operation, remains intact. The Clydesdale Estate factory, drying patios, and water wheel can still be seen and continue to stand after more than two hundred years. Once a favorite getaway for honeymooners, the Clydesdale Great House, along with the factory, has now been appointed by the Government of Jamaica as a National Heritage site. The Clydesdale Coffee Region farmers have continued the tradition and continue to produce an exclusively typica-variety outstanding quality coffee. The Clydesdale brand represents coffees from this region and other select regions within the oldest coffee-growing area of the Blue Mountains, the Southern Slope. In a new decade of excellence, the producers of Clydesdale coffee continue to celebrate the old traditions that have made this coffee world-renowned to ensure the highest quality while retaining the cultural practices that make it so special.
