The Blue Mountains in Jamaica are famed for their coffee plantations - producing some of the best and most expensive coffee in the world - as well as the 7000 ft Blue Mountain Peak. Cuba can be seen from its slopes on a fine day. In the days of slavery some of the first independent, emancipated communities were founded in these mountains by runaway slaves.
