Later guests will be introduced to Jamaican cuisine at it’s best, with a special welcome dinner with wine pairing.


DAY 2 – FRIDAY – COFFEE TRADER’S PLANT, CORONATION MARKET, PAINT JAMAICA MURALS, LIFE YARD, ITAL CAFE & BELCOUR


Visit Kingston and Coffee Traders Ltd, one of the island’s top exporters of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee. The family-owned company incorporates all aspects of coffee production from bean to cup, farming to roasting its own, and other Premium Brand Estate Coffees.

Experience Coronation Market, the largest produce market on the island. Next stop is Paint Jamaica, and then lunch at Life Yard Ital Café.


Cap the day off in the Blue Mountain foothills with a visit to Belcour, the private home of Robin and Michael Lumsden. Belcour presently operates an apiary with over 75 bee colonies. Enjoy a scrumptious Belcour Tea with all the trimmings, including a taste of Belcour’s spectacular line of jams and sauces.



DAY 3 – SATURDAY – BLUE MOUNTAIN COFFEE ESTATES AND GARDENS


Twyman’s Old Tavern Blue Mountain Coffee Estate. Enjoy specialty coffees in the old wooden coffee roasting house, including Peaberry and Aged Blue Mountain.


Newcastle was established in 1841 as a healthy base camp for the British Army to escape the Yellow Fever epidemic in Kingston. Today the picturesque old camp serves for training the Jamaica Defense Force. Newcastle’s motto: No obstacle too difficult, no task too great!


At the back of Newcastle is the Clifton Mount Coffee Estate. At 4,300 ft., Clifton Mount offers superb views over the Yallahs Valley and the grand ridge of the Blue Mountain range including Blue Mountain Peak at 7,402 ft. The historic 200-acre coffee property was purchased by its present owners, the Sharp family in 1977. Enjoy the spectacular views with a picnic lunch on the grounds. 


The tour moves on to The Heritage Gardens Of Cold Spring designed around the fascinating architectural features of an 18th Century Coffee Pulpery.


Return to Strawberry Hill with time to enjoy the pool, gardens, and spa before sunset.

DAY 4 – SUNDAY – ST. MARK’S CHAPEL WALK & FAREWELL


Sunday morning, wake to the church bells of St. Mark’s Chapel, a charming 18th century Anglican Church, which is only a half hour stroll. Return for a final satisfying Jamaican breakfast and one more cup of the ‘best coffee in the world’.


According to your time of departure, you might also enjoy Strawberry Hill Sunday Brunch, a traditional weekend event for Kingstonians. Each Sunday, without fail, Strawberry Hill hosts an exceptionally tantalizing weekend brunch that lasts well into the afternoon.
