In this one off coffee episode (It'll be back to tea next episode, I promise)
I have the founders of Mikah Blue Coffee company, a family owned business lead by Investment Banker and Second generation Coffee Trader, Michael and his wife Shenika, both Jamaicans who now reside in the United Kingdom (UK) and Jamaica.
The history of Mikah Blue Coffee company dates back thirty (30) years since 1990 when Michael's Uncle and Mentor Donald acquired lands in the Blue Mountains of St. Andrew and Portland and commenced cultivating coffee berries for sale to local Middlemen. The berries were then processed, and sold to Importers, primarily to Japan and the USA.
Coffee beans harvested from their farms consistently receive a cupping score of 85 and over and they primarily sell beans that have been certified by the Jamaica Agricultural Commodities Regulatory Authority (JACRA) as Grade 1.
Mikah Blue are certified by JACRA and is also a member of the Jamaica Coffee Grower's Association.
