Patented Technology Changing the Capsule Coffee Market
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - RealCup™ single serve capsules
passed another milestone today as the beverage industry's newest player
in the single-serve market celebrated the 25 million mark in unit
Launched in August 2012, RealCup™ capsules are now available to
consumers in a variety of coffee and tea blends on amazon.com, amazon.ca, and at select retail outlets in Canada and the U.S. The RealCup™ brand
is also available to Office Coffee Services and Foodservice providers
across North America as single-serve capsules become increasingly
popular in business, restaurants, and bars.
Mother Parkers drew on 100 years of experience and innovation in the
coffee and tea industries to develop RealCup™. RealCup™ uses a unique,
patented filter design that delivers full flavour because it is
optimized for brewing performance, allowing more of the coffee and tea
flavour to pass through. RealCup™ is K-Cup® brewer compatible, but is
not affiliated with K-Cup® or Keurig Inc.
"RealCup is changing the single-serve capsule market by offering
alternatives that deliver great taste in the cup for consumers and
foodservice operators," said Jeffrey Zietlow, Director of Marketing for
RealCup™. "With partners including quality coffee brands like Brown Gold®, Martinson® and Marley Coffee™, as well as the popular Higgins & Burke™ brand of
teas, developing a capsule technology that can maintain the true taste
of a hot beverage was a top priority."
The popularity of RealCup™ as a single-serve capsule alternative is
driving rapid growth in production and Mother Parkers plans to expand
the number of coffee and tea blends and flavors available in RealCup™
capsules in 2013.

market. RealCup™ capsules use a patented filter material to deliver a
