Sherwood Forest Coffee Estate is one of Jamaica’s oldest, started in 1801. Owned, run and managed by the Bramwell family, this 81 hectare property is located in the heart of the designated Blue Mountain area in Hagley Gap, St Thomas.  The altitude, rainfall and temperature ranges mean a long, slow ripening of the coffee cherries, a period that can up to 10 months. Harvesting the cherries on the rugged and steep slopes is difficult work, carried out by local villagers with decades of experience. Picked, ripe cherry is processed on the estates own wet mill. Drying the parchment takes between 7- 50 days to dry.  Drying can be difficult, interrupted by rain and fog and meticulous care is needed to keep the parchment dry. Once dry, the parchment is milled and then has to be certified by the Jamaican Coffee Industry Board prior to export.
