I am planning to bring most of my OOT bag goodies with me but I did ask a friend (my fiance is originally from JA) to find out what it would cost to buy nips of Appleton rum down there (I'm putting together 50 bags for 120 guests so my budget is limited) and he said I can get them at a local liquor store for $1 a piece.
I didn't inquire about the coffee but there must be places you can purchase. The only down side to the coffee is that most Jamaicans don't drink a lot so you're best bet is tourist spots ... which of course means a higher price!

Thanks for asking this question, I was wondering the same thing! I figured I would check out the airport gift shops as well. I know that they can be overpriced, but it is an option if you are strapped for time before your guests arrive.

If you have arranged your own private transportation, you can always ask your driver to take you somewhere where you can get the items that you want.
When I arrived at the resort, I had the transportation company that I was using for my entire stay, take me to one of their local friends at one of the shopping malls & I was able to get the mini bottles of Appleton rum that I gave out as favors.
I definitely found the items to be much more expensive at the resort.
Wherever you decide to go in Jamaica, don't be afraid to negotiate prices, especially if you're buying a lot of stuff and buying it from 1 particular store/vendor.

We are heading down in a few weeks to finalize plans and I will ask our wedding coordinator for her thoughts as well and will report back.
