We grow some of the world’s finest coffee on some of Jamaica’s richest farmland. We are involved in the entire process – from planting right through to seeing our product, a little Jamaican warmth, reach your doorstep.
Our coffee adventure was born out of the desire to make a difference and provide an exceptional product – warm in spirit, and wholeheartedly Jamaican.
In 2012 we launched Rocksteady Coffee Co.
A year later we bought a decade old, derelict coffee farm in Jamaica’s misty and rugged Blue Mountains which received world heritage status by UNESCO.
We left our Canadian home and jobs and moved to Jamaica – the country of Ricardo’s birth to become coffee farmers.
Risky? Maybe. Regrets? None.
There’s always lots to do running a farm but the upsides are worth the hard work. There’s something inspiring about bringing a dormant farm back to life. We contribute to the local economy and employ workers from the rural community. As we rejuvenated the farm, we rejuvenated ourselves and our sense of purpose.
We are exceptionally proud of the farm and our coffee. Our beans are hand-selected and mixed to create Rocksteady's unique taste profile. We do small batch processing and roasting to make sure we meet our own high expectations as well as the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica’s rigorous standards for quality and consistency.
We know you’ll enjoy your coffee as much as we enjoy bringing it to you.
