The local coffee-landscape in the UAE was very different when Coffee Planet first started the coffee venture. The goal was to help people experience the finest global Arabica coffee.

Coffee Planet launched on the Arabian Peninsula where much of Arabica coffee roasting had been part of its history and culture for over 500 years.

They first wanted to improve the quality of coffee sold on-the-go in highway convenience stores. Hence, they signed their first partnership with two major blue-chip fuel companies in the UAE to serve their own modern approach of freshly roasted, 100% coffee with fresh milk.


Coffee Planet expanded to offer a complete coffee solution to leading five-star hotels, catering companies, airlines and offices.

In 2008, they opened their new roastery in Dubai, which meant they had total contol of roasting their specialty coffee blends and single origin coffees.

They then expanded into retail across the UAE and wider GCC region, selling coffee in supermarkets and specialist food stores.


Coffee Planet launched their first franchised café concept in the UAE, while 2011 was their global expansion of franchised cafés into other international markets.

2016 and beyond
