Cocktail of the Month: Blue Mountain Jamaica Coffee

It’s Jamaica Blue Mountain Day on January 9th, and we’ve invited Dan Fellows, World of Coffee in Good Spirits two-time champion, to create an Irish coffee recipe with a twist. The sweet, rich, nutty flavours of the coffee are the perfect complement to the other ingredients and heady rum, which should ideally be a Jamaican brand.

Blue Mountain Jamaica Coffee: Jamaica-infused Irish coffee recipe

A twist on an Irish coffee using ingredients inspired by Jamaican flavours. An intense and luxurious warming drink.


  • 1 capsule of Jamaica Blue Mountain
  • 25ml dark rum (ideally Jamaican)
  • 15ml muscovado sugar syrup (1:1)
  • 50ml boiling water

  2. Add rum, muscovado sugar syrup and boiling water and stir.
