Popular Marley Coffee® blend now available for brewing in all single serve Keurig® K-Cup® style brewers, including new Keurig® K2.0 with reader technology
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Coffee lovers have a new reason to fuel their passion – the popular line of premium organic coffees from Marley Coffee® (OTCQB:JAMN) is one of the first independent brands to be available in the new RealCup™ single serve capsule format that can be brewed in the new Keurig® K2.0 system. Marley Coffee's One Love coffee blend will be available at retail outlets in Canada and the U.S. next week.
Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee and Marley Coffee® believe that what goes into a single-serve brewer should be the choice of each individual consumer, in the same way that they have chosen the kind of ground coffee to brew in their drip coffee maker or French Press for years. In August, Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee announced new technology for its RealCup™ brand of single serve capsules that would make them compatible with the newest Keurig® K-Cup® brewers as well as other brands of Keurig® K-Cup® style single serve systems.
"Consumer demand is what has driven the phenomenal growth of single serve brewing and consumers have spoken loud and clear – they want the freedom to choose any coffee brand they want," said Bill VandenBygaart, Vice President of Business Development at Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee. "We want to ensure that our coffee and tea brands, and those of our customers and partners, are available to be part of that choice regardless of what type of capsule brewer is being used."
While the new RealCup™ brand format is launching with the Marley Coffee® One Love coffee blend first, Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee is busy converting the other eight varieties that make up the Marley Coffee lineup. In addition, Mother Parkers plans to begin shipping new capsules with Keurig® K2.0 compatible lids for all its brand partners by January 2015.
"We are extremely proud of our artisan-roasted coffee. It's a matter of passion for the Marley family and we want to share the benefits of sustainably grown and ethically farmed coffee with as many people as possible," added Rohan Marley, founder of Marley Coffee. "With the RealCup™ brand as our partner, our coffees taste as good from a single serve capsule as they do from a traditional drip coffee maker and now that the RealCup™ capsules are compatible with all single serve brewers, we can spread the 'One Love' message and its coffee roast!"
