Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

This was my final stop on my Kingston and Blue Mountain tour with Caribbean World that I booked with Althea at RIU Ocho Rios. You had to go up some steep steps to get to it. I’m out of shape so after the presentation I didn’t go up for the rest of the grounds. I stayed on the front lawn. The presentation on the history of coffee and what makes Jamaican blue mountain coffee unique was excellent. We sampled the coffee with small pieces of cake. Afterwards, we were able to go upstairs to purchase coffee. I paid in US dollars. I’m sure they took pounds as well because the majority of the group was from the UK. During the presentation, I did confirm with the presenter that Anthony Bourdain had filmed at this location for his episode in Jamaica. He also dined there and a part of that was in the footage. It’s sad that Bourdain is no longer with us, but I recognized the estate from that episode. The drive up is a little scary, but it was well worth it.
The coffee prices they charge you are a discount compared to when you get back to the tourist areas. I ended up going to the General Foods Market in Ocho Rios to get more 100% Jamaican Blue coffee as gifts. I’m not a coffee drinker, but if you go to this estate, have your money ready. Bring a shopping bag that you can keep folded in your purse, you will want to buy what you can because their prices are very reasonable. 90% of their product goes back to Japan. I didn’t see their brand in the market.

This was great - our tour guide was AMAZING. Very informative regarding coffee plantations and the whole manufacturing process. There was a short hike (perhaps 20-30 minutes uphill) to a lookout spot and then back down. If you are fit enough I would recommend visiting. However be warned; the road is EXTREMELY windy so only go with a proper big car if you are a comfortable driver (otherwise organise a tour guide to take you).

We hired a car and made our own way there. The road was somewhat scary as it winds up the mountain with numerous hairpin bends and some of the road subject to debris from land slips.
The welcome was warm and we had just pitched up and were invited to a tour $20USD per person - well worth it. I learnt a lot about coffee and its history both globally and in Jamaica from our guide and enjoyed the walk up the hill. BE WARNED it is steep but you learn about the coffee plant and the Rainforest Alliance which was interesting.

Overall a lovely visit and the staff were great with a tasting of the coffee itself and some rum cake and the opportunity to buy some e beans we had a great time

Very nice interesting tour about the coffee plantation on blue mountain coffee growing and production. Our guide Gerome was very knowledgeable and kind. We got a very good hike with amazing views and explanation about the coffee plants. Later we were taught on how to distinguish zBlue Mountain coffee from the others and the best way to drink it. The only difficulty was that the trail is steep and has some very rough spots. I would have like to know more about fair trade and labor treatment of this coffee

This is situated in the Blue Mountains high above Kingston. Access is along a very windy and scary road. The road was reminiscent of an alpine mountain road in Austria without the snow. Our coach driver displayed exceptional skill in negotiating the hairpin bends.

Our coach driver stopped short of Craighton House, which meant that there was a very steep climb to get to the house.

I was slightly upset that another coach from the same company took all of its passengers to the front door of the house and avoided the steep climb that I had to endure.

I gave up trying to walk further up hill to see the coffee bean plantation.

The plantation house is over 200 years old and is very attractive. It is set out in part with period furniture. Very authentic. The grounds are well maintained.

I was not impressed with the efficiency of the organisation in handling visitors. It seemed disorganised. We had a long wait for presentation talk all about coffee growing and coffee production. This was very tiring and made for an exhausting visit.

Having been there once, I doubt that I would ever go there again. I don't mean to put people going there to form their own impression.

An enjoyable and informative tour, with a talk and tasting followed by a short walk up into the plantation itself. A little longer in the house might have been good but it was busy and there were clearly other tours coming in behind us. Worth the visit.

Great drive up through the mountains, and the grouds around the house are stunning. The house is also worth a good look round, and the talk about coffee is very interesting. However, if you have any mobility issues, you will really struggle. We had to sit in the garden while everyone else went up to the plantation but they didn't tell us that when we booked.

I give the plantation tour a 5, but the ride up to the plantation is not for anyone who experiences motion sickness, as the road is extremely windy, bumpy and the Jamaicans are very good drivers, but drive very fast! The plantation is beautiful, you can opt to take a walk up to the highest point. The brewer was vastly knowledgeable re: the entire coffee process and we were able to taste his coffee, which was delicious!! So we purchased 5#, not inexpensive, but this was not the same as we sampled. The beans have a whiteish appearance, lack flavor, even when used w/ a French press. I am hoping the other pounds we purchased will be better, but 2 out of 5 so far is less then optimal. I did email the brewer, but have not heard a response

What an amazing place, breath taking views. We learnt so much about the worlds number one coffee and the history of coffee in general. You get to try the coffee accompanied with a piece of cake Superb! The house and gardens are outstanding.
