Country Traders has been in the Coffee business since 1992 and our primary business over the last 27 years has been the roasting, distribution and sale of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee and other Jamaican coffee, in both the local and export markets under the ‘Coffee Roasters of Jamaica’ brand. In 2013, in an effort to improve the consistency of supply and quality of raw materials for our roasting business, we took a decision to begin purchasing coffee directly from small and medium size farmers.
