About Jamaica Blue

Jamaica Blue has been 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, premium ingredients to deliver contemporary café dishes with a twist.

Jamaica Blue derives its name from the majestic Blue Mountains of Jamaica, one of the best coffee-producing regions in the world and home to the brand’s exclusive Wallenford Estate® Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.

Jamaica Blue’s simple philosophy of great coffee and food, together with a passionate crew of chefs, baristas and service team, are the brand’s recipe for continued success.

From humble beginnings over 20 years ago, the franchise now has a growing international network of over 170 stores operating in seven countries: seven in the UK including Cambridge, Chelmsford, Rushden Lakes, Royal Berkshire Hospital, Next Birmingham, Eastbourne, and Telford.

Jamaica Blue is looking for franchisees to develop the brand throughout the UK. So, if you have ever pictured yourself running your own café, a Jamaica Blue franchise could be for you.
