The world-renowned Island Blue Coffee, solely owned by Jamaica Standard Products (JSP) brands was on full display on Thursday, January 9 at the Knutsford Court Hotel during the Ministry of Tourism and JAMPRO’s joint celebration of the Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee Day (JBMCD).

The inaugural Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee Day was also celebrated in Japan in recognition of the close partnership between Jamaica and Japan in the coffee industry.

JSP CEO John O Minott and members of the Island Blue team joined distinguished players in the local coffee industry, private sector and government in recognition of the special day which highlights the value of the unique and globally recognised Blue Mountain Coffee product.

Minott welcomed the initiative noting “at JSP we appreciate the wonder that is Blue Mountain Coffee. I am happy and proud that the government and wider Jamaica have come on board to bring recognition to this industry.”

During Thursday’s festivities, which also doubled as the official launch of the 2020 Blue Mountain Coffee Festival, the JSP team also promoted their single-serve Island Blue Blue Mountain Coffee capsule.

The capsule is compatible with the type of electronic single-brew machines that have become increasingly popular among coffee drinkers and especially with millennials worldwide.

“Our Island Blue brand is entirely dedicated to the appreciation and celebration of this amazing product. This is why we work so hard to preserve its natural beauty and complexity and present it in the best possible way for drinkers both in Jamaica and all around the world to enjoy,” Minott said.

Island Blue and other JSP products will be prominently featured at the third annual Blue Mountain Coffee Festival which is scheduled to take place on March 21, 2020, in Newcastle.

The festival will feature the best of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee, artisanal products and entertainment in a fun-filled and family-friendly setting.
