About Us

In Jamaica, there is a saying “wan wan coco ful baskit”.

It simply means that if you slow down, stop rushing and take your time, you will achieve your goal. At Jamaica Blue, we couldn’t agree more. We believe that everybody should take a little time out of their day to recharge, relax and reflect; to stop for a while and simply enjoy the moment.

So, as you sip your superior tasting Jamaica Blue coffee, be sure to take your time and fully embrace this moment: your coffee moment. After all, “wan wan coco, ful baskit”

Our Story

Owned by Foodco, one of Australia’s most successful retail franchise companies, and operated by Capital Retail & Hospitality, Jamaica Blue celebrated its 20th year anniversary in 2012.

Jamaica Blue was built on two simple beliefs that have guided us in everything that we’ve done: a belief in sourcing the very best coffee; and a belief in using only fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

Having this single-minded guiding philosophy has allowed us to be flexible and creative with different café concepts, from fully licensed café restaurants, to kiosks, to hole in the wall espresso bars; with thriving Jamaica Blue businesses in residential areas, malls, airports, hospitals and high streets.

As the master franchisee partner, we have the freedom to develop cafés with their own personality and their own menu selection, responding to local tastes and the availability of seasonal produce in the area.

Our simple philosophy, together with our empowered and passionate team are the Jamaica Blue recipe for continued success.  From our humble beginnings in the in 2009, we now have a growing network of locations across the UAE with many more coming soon.  As well as being part of the larger Jamaica Blue community covering Australia, New Zealand, China, Singapore, Malaysia and here in the UAE which covers over 170 stores operating in 7 countries.
