About Our Coffee
Rowan's Royale Organic Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is grown on a
small farm above Silver Hill Gap in Portland, Jamaica at a height
of over 4,000ft. There have been no pesticides, fungicides or
herbicides used on the farm for the last 15 years and no
inorganic fertilisers for 5 years.
Rowan's Royale coffee is largely shade grown. Care is taken to
preserve wild flowers and shrubs that support an active bird
population. The farm is part of the Blue and John Crow Mountain
National Park and is thus a nature reserve. Employees on the
coffee farm participate regularly in organic seminars and
Rowans Royale is hand- picked, washed, pulped, sun dried,
hand-checked, sized, sorted and then roasted to customer
Rowan's Royale was first
certified in 2002 by BCS OKO, for both on and off-farm
production. Since 2004 it has been certified by CERES GmbH
(Ge3rmany) to EC 2092/91 and NOP organic standards. The German
Certifying Agency inspects the farm once a year to ensure that RR
is in compliance with all the organic regulations and legislation
in the EC and North America and as of 2009, Japan.
