Marley Coffee Ships First Recyclable EcoCups
Emily Jed | 8/19/15
DENVER — Marley Coffee said it shipped the first batch of its new recyclable EcoCups on July 31. The initial shipments were delivered to office coffee service operations, among other channels.
Created in partnership with Canadian roaster Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee, the recyclable EcoCup is a clear capsule compatible with most Keurig K-Cup machines that allows consumers to see both the coffee grounds and the filter through its exterior while preventing oxidation. It remains sealed until brewing, maintaining taste and freshness.
Consumers can dispose of EcoCups by peeling off the lid of the pod, composting the grounds, discarding the lid and filter, and recycling the outer cup. All current Marley Coffee RealCup single-serve capsules will begin transitioning to the new EcoCup format and will remain at the same price point, according to the company.
EcoCups will be available online and at retailers nationwide starting in late August in a variety of light, medium, dark and espresso roasts. The suggested retail price for most Marley Coffee roasts is $9.99 for 12-ct. boxes. All are certified USDA Organic, Rainforest Alliance Certified or Jamaica Blue Mountain and are Blue Ribbon Kosher Certified.
