The new car is often one that greets you upon entering a car sales lot, or that of oil and machinery from the nearby garage. But at its new home along Old Hope Road, Toyota Jamaica is reengineering business.

As a matter of fact, the car company has been brewing quite a bit of attention from corporate Jamaica since the opening of its cafÈ. Home of some of the freshest authentic Jamaican coffee blends, Sachi Shitara has persons, and not just ones doing business with Toyota Jamaica, running up the stairs of the eatery for a cup or two.

"We have been here since February and the response is great," shared the business development consultant, who only uses coffee grown of the highest quality. "We partner with Old Tavern Coffee Estate and each week freshly roasted coffee is delivered to our cafÈ," she continued.

Another local supplier to the cafe is the chocolate company, One One Cacao. This is used to serve warm cups of cafe mocha, among others.

Not a fan of coffee? no problem. More flavourful than tea bags, loose leaf teas from all across the world are available at the coffee house. From traditional English black teas, Japanese green teas or herbal teas, a cup is there for you.

Open to all members of the public, the Toyota Coffee House maintains a customer first mentality and is ready and waiting to serve you a cup of happiness.
