Nomlas Farmz, Jamaica
Nomlas Farmz is one of those uniquely beautiful and exemplary run coffee farms. Donald Salmon, who is also the President of the Jamaica Coffee Growers Association, owns this beautiful farm and produces some of the best coffee at this altitude.
Through smaller high-quality farmers such as Nomlas Farmz its possible to give the benefit of the increased interest in specialty coffee back to the farmers. Most of the farmers do not have a real alternative except to sell to the larger coffee exporters. Their hard work and effort becomes anonymous. Small growers working through boutique exporters mean that their coffee is singled out and recognised.
Nomlas Farmz is located in the Clydesdale region of St Andrew parish with the coffee plants growing at 1706 MASL. It is one of the highest altitude farms with a continuous and distinct cloud cover that gives the coffee the best possible conditions for slow maturation.
The farm is spread over 920 acres and has a higher yield per acre compared to most other Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee farms. The quality and quantity the farm turns out is a testament to the management and agricultural skills of Donald and his team. The coffee has particularly good conditions on Nomlas Farmz. Although the coffee grows on very steep slopes, there is a continuous focus on avoiding erosion by maintaining a good variety of tree and plant growth. The trees also serve to protect and assist the coffee during maturation. The advantage of shade grown coffee like this is that the coffee plants are protected from the wind and extreme temperatures. The soil type at Nomlas Farmz is characterised by rapid internal drainage and is described as ‘slightly acid to neutral’ which is part of the reason for the coffee’s low acidity.
Nomlas Farmz pulp and dry their own coffee and take the parchment to a processing facility once the coffee is ready for hulling and separating. It is subsequently barrelled and exported under the Jamaica Coffee Growers Association mark. Key points with our Nomlas Farmz coffee: -
