Starbucks Jamaica Blue Mountain

About a month or so ago, the Starbucks I frequently visit remodeled the entire store. Along with the remodel came the Clover. You can imagine that a coffee junkie such as myself was overjoyed with the sight of the new shiny machine sitting behind the new espresso bar. And when I heard recently about the Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee coming to the Clover stores, I was ecstatic.

I could not wait to try this coffee. It sells for $30 for half a pound and surely I wasn’t willing to spend that much money on a bag of beans. Even at the Clover brewed price for a tall is a little pricey – $4.55.

The aroma alone of the coffee is enticing. And it’s so smooth. I couldn’t believe it. The brew offers a lovely chocolate note but with a bit of citrus, too. I loved it. As I type this paragraph, my mouth is watering for just one more sip of that beautiful Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.

If you happen to be one of the lucky souls to live near a Starbucks with a Clover, I recommend you stroll over to get yourself a cup of this brew. I really don’t think you’ll regret it.
