Starbucks Doubles its Order for Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee

Starbucks, the US-based coffee chain, has doubled its order for Blue Mountain coffee, the second consecutive year it has increased its demand.  The company has confirmed 220 barrels or 15,400 kilogrammes of the bean to be delivered when the crop is ready, said Michael Lyn, general manager of Gold Cup Coffee Company.  Starbucks ordered 110 barrels last year, a 60 per cent increase from the 70 barrels it took in 2010.  The coffee store giant sells Blue Mountain coffee for about $5 (US) a cup, according to its website.
