We will now donate 2.5% of all of our sales to the Guava Ridge Basic School and Coffee Solutions will match our donation. That means that 5% of all Canadian sales of certified genuine Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee Ridgelyne brand will support the school. You can purchase from us with confidence that we are giving back to the a community in the region where our coffee is grown. You can also donate directly here
We visited Guava Ridge Basic School high in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. The school started in the 1960's as community center. There are approximately 40 students in 3 classes from age 3 to 6 years old. The school draws students from a 12 mile radius in the very remote and mountainous Guava Ridge area. The school receives a subsidy for nutrition as meals are provided for the students, and the principal receives a small subsidy. There are two other assistant teachers. Almost all of the funds to operate the school come from fundraisers and donations as most of the parents cannot afford to pay the school fees.
Our coffee roaster and another foreign importer have also been providing financial support. The children have no other options for education so we too have decided to support the school. Commencing January 1, 2018 we will be donating 2% of all of our sales of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee to support the school our first disbursement to the school will be at the end of 2018. If you would like to make a donation please contact us as we would be happy to assist.

We have started a new lower pricing policy that we trust our loyal customers will enjoy. Now our 1/4 lb and 1/2 lb packs will cost the same as the equivalent 1 lb packages. For example if you buy four or more 1/4 lb packs or two or more 1/2 lb packs it will be the same total price per pound as one of our 1 lb packs. We have always priced the smaller packages higher as fewer can fit in a shipping box from Jamaica and cost more to ship to us, however we have found efficiencies in our shipping that allow us to pass on the savings with this new pricing policy. You can now buy smaller packs and gift or share and pay the same price as if you were purchasing a 1 lb package. Buy now here. If you have any questions please contact us.

Simple supply and demand is the cause of the recent rapid increase in the price of Jamaica Blue Mountain
Just as the Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee industry was set to harvest a great crop after 2 years of drought the unthinkable happened. A huge flood of a Coffee warehouse in Kingston that stored a large portion of the 2015 crop. While our supply was not affected it will unfortunately drive prices due to supply and demand.
The Jamaican Government has formed a Brand Infingement Task Force which is investigating and prosecuting counterfeiters of Jamaica Blue Mountain
