I recently started roasting my own coffee beans using a popcorn popper (West Bend 82416 Air Crazy 4 Quart Corn Popper from target ($10 cheaper than amazon). This is the first coffee i have roasted, so I can't compare it to other coffee beans (yet). Many friends and family members have sampled this coffee and everyone like it; some have said this is the best coffee they have tasted (way better than starbucks). The flavor is well balanced, not too acidic/bitter.

Since I haven't tried the real Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, I can't comment on how similar this is to the real thing.

Will buy again once I have tried few other coffee beans.

Update: 9/30/2012
After trying various other coffees: Green Unroasted Panama Boquete, Whole Bean Coffee, 5-Pound Bag,Magnum Jamaican Blue Mountain Blend Coffee, Ground, 1 Lb Bag, and some others from Whole Foods, this is still my favorite coffee bean.

I have been buying special green coffee, roasting and grinding my own for years. This is excellent coffee and I will probably purchase more, even though I like to experiment with new coffees from time to time.

Excellent coffee bean for roasting. Our family just purchased another 5 pounds for more roasting. Plenty of flavor and mild on acidity when roasted to a dark brown bean and before any oil appears on the bean itself (455F @ 17 minutes).

What's not to like about good coffee.
I've compared it to the real Jamaican Blue Mountain Style and find it adequate; but if you're a real coffee lover with a sensitive pallet, then this will fall short of your expectations. But if you've never had Arabica and are accustomed to the typical American swill, Robusta, then this will totally spoil you. It is a delightful blend that will get you through the day.

While this isn't technically JBM, it's a "style", it still tastes really, really good. It can be difficult to roast because the bean size and type is pretty varied, so be sure to start on a medium or medium high and roast it slowly to get it as evenly as possible.

I have been grinding my own coffee for years. This is my first time to buy Jamaican Blue Mountain Style Whole Green Coffee Bean. Roasting my own coffee was new & exciting. This is an excellent coffee and I will purchase again. Smooth an Well balanced.

It's really difficult to find Jamaica Blue Mountain green coffee beans, and when you do, $35-$75 per pound seems a bit extreme. Even then, the quality of JBM that's on the general market is spotty. I recall vividly the first time I had authentic JBM. It tasted as good as coffee smells with no bitterness, and full flavor with hints of fruit and chocolate.

This does a fairly good job of reproducing that flavor. Roasted to a full city roast, it's mild with subtle hints of chocolate, a pleasing smell, and no bitterness.

This is NOT JBM, but it's close enough for the price.

This is our fifth kind of unroasted bean we bought, and I was underwhelmed. It was not bad by any means, but it didn't have the amazing taste like a few other beans we've roasted did. I tried roasting from city roast to french roast.

Anyway, the bean roasts great. Probably one of the easiest I've roasted, but between these and just a cheap coffee I wouldn't be able to tell these were fresh.

I've been roasting coffee for over 10 years and have roasted all different kinds of coffee from all over the world. Some I like, some I didn't. I'll usually give a coffee several different types of roasting to see which best suits my pallet. More than once I've roasted authentic "Jamaican Blue Mountain (JBM) Coffee" and as advertised it was terrific. When I bought the JBM Style unroasted coffee I expected strong similarities to the real thing. After the first roasting not only was it not even close to authentic JBM coffee, it was terrible. I tried several different roasting profiles but none could bring it up to an acceptable roast. Bottom line...it's in the garbage. I'd be happy to hear if anyone else found a way to roast it that worked.

I wouldn't drink this stuff again. Years ago I had Jamaican Blue from Gloria Jean and you couldn't beat it. This stuff is something that should be beat!
