Marley Coffee® Brand Gives Coffee Drinkers Something to Sing About By
Adding New Flavor Varieties to the Single-serve Coffee Aisle with
RealCup® Brand Capsules Compatible with K-Cup Brewers
MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 13, 2014 /CNW/ - RealCup™ brand capsules bring
innovation and more choice to the single-serve coffee aisle with the
release of five new additions to the Marley Coffee® line.
Due for a spring release, these new additions are sure to get Marley
Coffee® fans dancing around their coffee brewers. Don't be surprised if
you hear your co-workers humming, or even singing "Buffalo Soldier"
over their coffee cups.
Joining Buffalo Soldier in a RealCup™ single-serve capsule will be Mystic Morning, Catch a Fire, Smile Jamaica and Spiced Root Rum. The new coffees will be available beginning in March with flavor
profiles to suit every taste. Each of these distinctive blends contains
Rainforest Alliance Certified™ (RFA) beans, as part of Rohan Marley's
commitment to supporting sustainable and ethical farming practices.
Both Catch a Fire and Spiced Root Rum are light roast coffees created with 100% RFA beans complimented by
hints of spice or rum flavors. Spiced Root Rum is inspired by Rohan Marley's carefully aged Jamaican Rum and delivers
the reggae spirit his beloved homeland is famous for. Catch a Fire has an innovative taste profile with the spicy, hot flavor of Jamaican
chili peppers. Catch a Fire's unique burnin' blend is a first for the Marley Coffee® brand and the
single-serve coffee aisle bringing a heat that is right on trend.
Mystic Morning and Smile Jamaica will appeal to those who prefer a medium roast. Mystic Morning is a vibrant coffee made from 100% RFA beans, and boasts cocoa, citrus
and spice notes. Smile Jamaica, Marley Coffee® brand's signature blend, is crafted using 20% Jamaican
Blue Mountain Coffee and 80% RFA with a rich flavor, balanced acidity
and full body. This blend will provide consumers a lower price point
and encourage people to try Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee.
Buffalo Solider, with its earthy, bold and complex flavors, will appeal to those who
prefer a dark roast. Buffalo Solider is also 100% RFA coffee. Roasted sweet, this earthy blend is sultry,
smoky and deliciously smooth to help you in your fight for survival.
Rohan Marley founded Marley Coffee® brand to honor his father Bob
Marley's legacy and continue the family tradition of the celebration
and enjoyment of coffee. "RealCup™ brand's commitment to quality and a
better tasting cup of single-serve coffee would give Bob Marley
something to sing about," says Rohan Marley. "I know he would be proud
to drink Marley Coffee® single-serve."
