- New Beans. New Coffee. New NABOB. -
VANCOUVER, Dec. 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Nabob Coffee Company is celebrating its
re-invention with the introduction of three innovative new BOLD blends
developed specifically for sophisticated and discerning Canadian coffee
connoisseurs - the award winning Midnight Eclipse, Gastown Grind, and
Full City Dark.
Nabob BOLD Midnight Eclipse receives prestigious Superior Taste Award
The new Nabob BOLD Midnight Eclipse received a stamp of quality in taste
from the International Taste and Quality Institute (ITQI) Superior
Taste Award, scoring two out of three stars, deeming it a "remarkable
brew". The Superior Taste Award is likened to the "Michelin Guide of
Food and Drink" where products are rewarded based on their own merit.
Products are individually blind tested by a panel of judges composed of
members of the most prestigious culinary institutions of Europe such
as, the Maîtres Cuisiniers of Belgium and France.
Products are evaluated based on their aroma, flavour, appearance, and
after-taste. In particular, ITQI noted that it is exceptional to have
reached such a high score for a product not yet in market as many
brands take years perfecting their product before entering it into this
"There is an art to roasting the perfect BOLD coffee and with our new
blends we wanted to marry the subtle flavours, cocoa, citrus, smoky,
caramel, that really bring the coffee to life in the cup," said Jenn
Castro, Nabob Roast Master "Our new BOLD blends are about bringing out
the very best in each bean of coffee we roast."
New BOLD Blends Created for Canadians
In addition to Nabob's award-winning BOLD Midnight Eclipse, the coffee
company introduced two other BOLD blends - Gastown Grind and Full City
Gastown Grind - Medium Bold Roast
In 1896 the Nabob Coffee Co. was founded in Gastown, a quaint
neighbourhood in Vancouver B.C. that's rich in history and personality.
Its namesake, our new Gastown Grind blend, is a bold brew full of nutty
and caramelly flavours roasted to perfection.
Full City Dark - Dark Bold Roast
This previously enjoyed blend has now moved into the BOLD lineup, as it
is our darkest roast! An authentically rich, full city dark roast - it
cannot contain its smoky, full-bodied flavour that is velvety smooth.
More New Nabob Offerings
In addition to the BOLD lineup, the Nabob Coffee Company also recently
launched a trio of single origin Whole Bean coffees - 100% Colombian,
Costa Rica and Guatemala. The Whole Bean line allows consumers to grind
their coffee fresh, just the way they like it, experiencing the unique
flavours of each origin. Visit www.nabob.ca for more details on the new BOLD Blends and Whole Bean Coffees.
Nabob introduced new packaging across its entire product roster this
fall, and supported these new efforts with a multi-platform marketing
campaign with the tagline - New Beans. New Coffee. New NABOB.
The Nabob Coffee Co. continues to strive to bring Canadians premium
quality coffee while helping the environment, farmers and their
communities. Nabob received the 2012 Sustainable Standard-Setter Award
from the Rainforest Alliance for its commitment to sourcing sustainable
coffee. Additionally, NABOB recently partnered with TerraCycle® - a
pioneering upcycling and recycling company that gives your coffee bags
a second life by recycling them into everyday plastic products such as
garbage cans, tote bins and planters. For more information on how to
recycle your coffee bags with TerraCycle, please visit terracycle.ca.
