We carry three Blue Mountain coffees, all are No. 1 : RSW Estates, Wallenford and Clifton Mount Estate. We import green coffee directly from Jamaica and roast in Atlanta just prior to shipping. You can find descriptions of the coffees in our Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee page

I replied on Friday to your questions, you might want to check your junk mail. I will respond here as well:
You asked about the price of our espresso bean. We have an espresso blend for $16 lb. It is a dark roast only.
Then you asked about the minimum order, which is a half pound, though that it hardly worth shipping to Hong Kong.
The shipping price for 8 lbs of coffee is about US$60 for Fedex International Economy. I discovered that where it asks for a "postal/zip code" you need to put in the village, town or district in Hong Kong (Hong Kong, Kowloon, etc) for the shipping pricing to work. You can price the shipping prior to ordering once you have put the coffee you want in your shopping cart.
If you visited the website you can see that you can choose whichever Blue Mountain coffee you wish, but your iniitial question about the espresso has me thinking you want to use the Blue Mountain to brew espresso coffee. The Clifton Mount and the Wallenford are available in a dark roast, which is more appropriate for espresso brewing. The RSW Estate is available only in medium roast. We generally recommend brewing Jamaica Blue Mountain in a press pot, vacuum or drip maker rather than as an espresso.
