Starbucks Jamaica Store #1 officially opened yesterday on the famous Montego Bay Hip Strip at the entrance of Doctors Cave Beach, yes it is on the beach with a beautiful beach view.
In the last 12 months Starbucks Coffee Co. has ‘doubled’ its exports of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee and has committed to triple this number by opening up the sale of their most premium offering (Jamaican Blue Mountain) to over 1,000 more stores in overseas markets, and this is only the first step of our partnership. As we work together to grow our local coffee culture we will be working to not only expand local Jamaican Blue Mountain product offerings, but Starbucks Coffee Co. has suggested they will be making a unique Jamaica blend of coffee that will be seen on their menu boards across the globe.
This partnership will do great things for the world’s second most consumed beverage and our beautiful country of Jamaica and its coffee farmers. We will be sending 12 young coffee growers to Costa Rica to learn best practices at the Starbucks Coffee hacienda as a part of transferring knowledge to the next generation of coffee farmers to ensure we expand our efficiency and are on the cutting edge of production. Thank you for this kind gesture Starbucks and for being so keen on the farmers and their well being. 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲 ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ -
