Review: Baronet Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee Pods
Straight from the magical beauty and lush vegetation of the Blue Mountain range to you comes this rarest of all coffees! Jamaican Blue Mountain and at $2.25 per pod - it had better be good. These limited edition Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee pods will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers and are available for a limited time at CoffeeWhiz.com.
Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is famous for its clean, refined taste and hint of natural sweetness. It also tends to have an intensely bold aroma and excellent body. Where does Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee come from? This rare coffee pod's coffee from St. Andrews, Jamaica. Also did you know that the Jamaican Coffee grower gets a higher price for his coffee than any other coffee producing country? We're pretty sure we can tell given the price of these coffee pods.
How good was the coffee produced? How does $2.25 per pod coffee taste in your single serve coffee brewer?
Tasting the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee
We decided to only trust these coffee pods with our Bunn My Cafe. We fired it up and ran a cycle of water through it to get the tray warmed up and also make sure we'd get the proper brew volume of water when we inserted our Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee pod from Baronet. We find a good pre-moistening always helps, and given the cost of these pods - we didn't want to get it wrong.
The Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee pods are individually wrapped and weigh in at 10.1-10.2 grams per pod. We think this is a generous size for a coffee pod but not too big. Given the 10 gram size - we'd recommend using your double cup-pod holder for Senseo and pre-wetting the pod, along with using a double cup holder on many of the other coffee pod brewers with pre-moistening.
We decided to try two sizes - 6 oz and 8 oz cups of coffee using the Bunn My Cafe coffee pod brewer. The coffee brewed was not as dark as expected, but the aroma of the coffee was very sweet and interesting.
We tried the coffee without cream and sugar and with a little 2% and a pinch of sugar. The coffee is sweet and has a nice spicy quality to it. There is an almost caramel like taste with a smooth finish. This coffee is very very very good. We can't taste any acid like qualities in the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee pods from Baronet at all - delicious.
We can't but recommend these coffee pods. Sure - at $2.25 a pop it's an expensive cup but we bet you're worth it. Also for the coffee pod connoisseur out there we think this would make the perfect gift. Amazing coffee.
We're going to give this a full 5 out of 5. Brilliant.
