With an area of 10991 square kilometers, the country is the third largest island in the Caribbean. The country is divided into three counties and 14 districts under the three counties.

The Jamaican flag is rectangular, with two yellow diagonal broadband lines crossing each other. The flag is divided into four triangles, green above and below, and black around. Yellow represents the country's natural resources and sunshine, black symbolizes customer service and upcoming difficulties, and green symbolizes hope and the country's rich agricultural resources.

Located in the northwest of the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica is an island country, facing Haiti across the Jamaica Strait to the east and about 145 kilometers to the north from Cuba. The coastal areas of Jamaica are alluvial plains, mountains in the east, hills and limestone plateaus in the middle and west, developed karst landforms, lack of surface runoff and more caves.

However, from June to the end of November, the six months are a period of frequent occurrence of hurricanes and tropical storms, often hit by hurricanes.

Coffee producing area

Jamaica attaches great importance to the development of the coffee industry and established the Central Coffee Coffee Clearing House (Central Coffee Clearing House) in 1944, all coffee must be approved by this institution before being exported. In addition, the Jamaica Coffee Industry Council (The Jamaica Coffee Industry Board, referred to as CIB) was established in 1950, but the organization merged with other Jamaican commodity agencies in 2018 to form the Jamaica Agricultural Commodities Authority (JACRA), and every barrel of Blue Mountain coffee beans must now be subject to quality control through JACRA. When it was founded, it also promulgated the "Coffee Industry Supervision Law", delineating the world-famous "Blue Mountain Coffee growing area".

According to the Coffee Industry Regulation Law, the Blue Mountain planting area is distributed in four areas: St.Andrew, St.Thomas, Portland and St.Mary. Only the coffee varieties grown in this area with an altitude of 915m-1700 m can be named Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee (Jamaica Blue Mountain).

The Blue Mountain range is located in eastern Jamaica, at an altitude of 1000-1700 meters. It is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. When the weather is clear, the sun shines directly on the sea, and the peak reflects the blue mountain light of the sea, hence its name. It is located in the coffee growing belt, with fertile volcanic soil, fresh air, no pollution, humid climate, foggy and rainy all the year round (the average precipitation is 1980 mm, the temperature is about 27 degrees), such a climate has created the world-famous Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.
