Keurig K2.0 Compatible Single-Serve Capsules Expected to be Shipped to Customers in January 2015
First Step in Transitioning Company's Product Lineup to EcoCup™ Format in Summer 2015
DENVER, Dec. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marley Coffee (OTCQB:JAMN) (www.marleycoffee.com), the sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan-roasted gourmet coffee company, expects to launch its first single-serve capsule that is compatible with the Keurig® Green Mountain K2.0 brewer in Marley Coffee's top-selling blend, One Love. The Company's single-serve coffee partner and investor, Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee, will start shipping the K2.0 compliant single-serve capsules to customers in January 2015.
Marley Coffee's eight other RealCup® blends will subsequently be offered in K2.0 compatible capsule format, with target shipment dates beginning in February 2015. This represents the first step in transitioning the Company's full product lineup to the innovative EcoCup™ format. Slated to launch in summer 2015, the EcoCup initiative will provide one of the first easy-to-use recyclable capsules created in response to consumer demand for sustainable solutions in the single-serve category. All Marley Coffee RealCups will be updated to K2.0 brewer compatibility in Q1 2015 and will utilize recyclable capsules by summer 2015. Consumers can find Marley Coffee at major grocery retailers across the United States and via a host of online retailers. A complete list of retailers can be found at: http://www.marleycoffee.com/buy
Rohan Marley, founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee, said, "We are committed to delivering the best-tasting cup of coffee in any format. This is why we are so pleased to offer our coffee capsules to consumers, regardless of the brewer used. Additionally, the transition to EcoCup is especially important to us as a sustainability initiative. It gives customers a greener single-serve option, while allowing them to enjoy the same great coffee they've come to expect from Marley Coffee."
Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee, said, "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. Mother Parkers has been in the forefront of offering the best consumer coffee experience with its superior RealCup filter technology for single serve, and now, answering the call for a more sustainable capsule solution with EcoCup. Mother Parkers is a true advocate and partner for independent brands like ours, as well as consumers who value their freedom of choice."
