We were taken here by Carolyn from Barrett adventures. It was a long drive from Montego Bay where we were staying but we knew this before we booked, and Carolyn chatted, told us all sorts of interesting facts as we drove through each area, stopped to show us views so the time flew by. When we reached the coffee plantation... More

We received a tour of the Estate from Carolyn Barrett with Barrett Adventures. She was extremely knowledgable about the estate and the process. We drank coffee and talked with David and Crissy for probably 2 hours in their living room. They were extremely kind and personable. Carolyn took us on a 3 hour hike through the planation. It was beautiful,... More

I'm a lifelong coffee drinker and this is the best I've ever tasted. Up above the clouds on the Twyman estate, it was sublime. Brewing it now here at home, It's fine too.

The peaberry coffee is excellent and of course pricey but is all hand picked and sorted , excellent views of the steep plantings of coffee bushes and birding on the road to this locale is amazing

We toured the plantation and spent considerable time with the owners son. It was very informative. We tried two different brews and they were fantastic. I was impressed by how labor intensive it is as well as only the best beans are used. It is a high quality operation and should be visited. We went on a tour by Susan... More

The coffee was great. We tried it w honey which I thought would be weird but it actually worked really well. It was a... More

Enjoyed visiting the plantation and Mrs Twyman was a friendly and knowledgeable host. We saw here home, an example of the roasting process and some of the plants. Enjoyed some delicious coffee and biscuits and also the views. Well worth the trip.

Visit Old Tavern Coffee Estate in January 2011 and often daydream of returning there often. The drive from our resort in Montego Bay was an adventure in itself! The drive through the Blue Mountains to reach the estate is not for the faint of heart, but you will be rewarded with beautiful views of Kingston on the drive and gorgeous... More
