Claverty Cottage is a small settlement located about 5 miles/8 km from Blue Mountain Peak in the parish of Portland, Jamaica.[1] The population of this settlement is approximately 600 inhabitants. The district is known for its production of one of the most popular coffee brands in the island (Blue Mountain coffee).[2] Over the last several decades, this coffee has developed a reputation that has made it one of the most expensive and sought-after coffees in the world. In addition to its use for brewed coffee, the beans are the flavor base of Tia Maria coffee liqueur.

About 1 km from this District is another small settlement called Clifton Hill, although many consider them to be the same settlement, locals consider them separate districts. In the community there is a primary school, a postal agency[3] and an Anglican church (St. Paul’s - Claverty Cottage),[4] the other church, a church of God is located in the adjacent Clifton Hill. The nearest urban area with a Police station is Buff Bay which is 30 miles away.
