Marley Coffee announced that its Marley Coffee Real Cups™ are currently available or will become available in the upcoming week across Canada through several office coffee service distributors as well as London Drugs stores in Western Canada. Marley Coffee's Real Cups will be compatible with most of Keurig's branded single serve k-cup machines.
Marley Coffee will be offering four varieties: Get Up, Stand Up (light roast), One Love 100 percent Ethiopia Yirgacheffe (medium), Lively Up 5 Bean Espresso (medium dark), and Talkin' Blues 100 percent Jamaica Blue Mountain® (medium). The company will also be offering a 36 count variety pack.
"This will truly be a huge opportunity for Marley Coffee and I'm proud that we've finally gotten this product out into the market. I'm happy to be introducing this product to all of our family's existing partners. So far, I've been receiving phone calls from some very prominent and large distributors that carry my family's other products that want to bring in our Real Cups soon," said Rohan Marley, chairman and founder of Marley Coffee, in a prepared statement.
"There is an opening for Marley Coffee to eat up significant market share in what we believe is still a very early stage industry," says Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee. "There are about 14 million households in Canada and another 120 million in the United States, with an average about 70 percent of them having some sort of coffee maker. Juxtapose that to the speed of growth we're seeing in the single-serve space, there's a lot of room left to go up."
For the home, Marley Coffee offers two varieties of Jamaica Blue Mountain® Ground and Whole Bean roasts and six varieties of certified USDA Organic Ground Coffee as well as Organic Whole Bean coffee and compostable single-serve at-home pods. Marley Coffee is also available for the trade in traditional 2.5-ounce fracs, compostable single-serve breakroom pods, and branded vending and foodservice solutions. In addition, the company recently introduced its first mobile retail franchise concept, the Marley Coffee-brand Bike Caffe.
