In recognition of the rich history, culture, and contributions of people of Caribbean descent, each year Caribbean American Heritage Month is celebrated throughout the world during the month of June.
The Black Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County (BCCPBC) is taking this opportunity to recognize #BCCPBC Caribbean American business owners and leaders.
Meet Allison Allison Boettcher, Owner Blue Mountain Coffee House located at 540 Clematis Street (Corner of Rosemary Ave).
Welcome to Blue Mountain Coffee House Home of “The World’s Best Coffee”!
Blue Mountain Coffee is incomparable to any other coffee bean. It is harvested, roasted, and transported from the highest peaks of Blue Mountain in Jamaica, as well as our family-owned estate, which is then directly shipped to our local coffee house.
January 28th, 2020 marked the date of my grand opening. Less than 2 months into the business, COVID-19 hit the nation and many businesses were forced to close. With no prior retail experience, I drew upon my finance background to operate lean and cost-efficiently, while applying marketing strategies that required optimizing my zero social media skills.
With only 8 full weeks in business, I had formed a small network of loyal customers, who were determined to keep my doors open. Other pivotal factors included meetings hosted by politicians, government officials, and groups such as the Black Lives Matter movement that led to Blue Mountain Coffee House becoming a small political hub overnight. It represented a place where people felt safe.
Without any existing capital, it was my loyal customers, my determination, and most importantly God’s grace that kept Blue Mountain Coffee House open.
In an industry where 50% of all new businesses fail in their first year, Blue Mountain Coffee House was able to sustain its business, create new jobs, and add value to the cultural diversity of downtown West Palm Beach.
Come and enjoy our Blue Mountain Coffee premium label and our private labeled Blue Mountain Coffee House brand.
You will fall in love with our homemade organic pancakes, waffles, crepes, delicious sandwiches, as well as our onsite baked breads and pastries.
Our Healthy Mini Juice Corner will provide a variety of natural juices and smoothies ensuring the best of nature’s endowment.
