Blue mountain coffee in Jamaica

I've got a friend heading to Montego Bay this weekend. I was thinking of asking them to pick up some Blue Mountain coffee. Where's the cheapest place to get authentic blue mountain? On one hand if you buy at the resort or the airport you'll likely get the real stuff but you'll be paying tourist trap prices. You buy offsite and who knows what kind of stuff it really is.

    I would look for a stamp of authenticity by the Jamaica Coffee Industry Board to ensure it is authentic, because there is alot of imitation Blue Mountain Coffee floating around. Otherwise you can be pretty confident what you buy at the Airport is real, sometimes that is worth the extra couple dollars a pound.
