Simple Industries Inc.

Simple Industries Inc. is an on line distributor of 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee and is based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. According to their website, Simple Industries is "a registered foreign importer and trademark licensee of the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica which ensures the integrity and quality of our Jamaica Blue Mountain® coffee."

I found Simple Industries on the Coffee Industry Board of Jamaica's website through my own independent research when I was looking to buy Blue Mountain Coffee after a recent trip to Jamaica. I wanted be sure of finding 100% certified Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee.

I have ordered from Simple Industries and overall I have had a very positive experience. My orders have been processed and shipped in a timely fashion. I typically order 2lbs at a time to save on shipping costs. I prefer the medium roast but, that is just a matter of individual taste.

In my opinion, Simple Industries is Canada's gem in the coffee industry. Below is a summary of my pros and cons.

Summary of Pros

  • Secure on line payment with Visa, Mastercard and Paypal accepted.
  • Authorized importer and trademark user with the Coffee Industry Industry Board of Jamaica.
  • Offers 1 lb, 1/2 lb, and 1/4 lb quantities in medium or dark roast.
  • Free gift wrapping. This is handy if you are purchasing as a gift for friends or business clients.
  • Loyalty programs and special offers. Everybody likes free coffee!
  • Ships worldwide.
  • Has retail outlets in the Ottawa area. Great if you live in the Ottawa area.
  • Immediate processing,shipping and tracking of orders.
  • Ability to track order history on line.
  • Premium grade #1 certified genuine whole beans.

Summary of Cons

  • Price - This is always a consideration with Blue Mountain Coffee and prices can be cheaper elswhere however; shipping and import expenses can inflate the cost considerably and can be cost prohibitive in the long run. It really boils down to your geographical location, currency, and shipping prices so, do your homework. Price is the only reason I did not give a 5 star rating.

My Rating

4 stars for Simple Industries Inc.

Buying Tip

For those who are on a limited budget, I'd suggest making Blue Mountain Coffee your weekend or special occasion coffee or order 1/4lb or 1/2 lb quantities which, may be more affordable.
