Cocktail of the Month: Blue Mountain Jamaica Coffee

To celebrate in March, World of Coffee in Good Spirits two-time champion created an Irish coffee recipe with a twist to showcase Difference Coffee’s Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee. 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.
