Our customers have been asking for locally roasted coffee in a convenient, single-serve form. - Greg Ubert, Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Ohio Coffee Roaster Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea has introduced a new line of single-serve coffee capsules. Designed to work with major single-serve home brewing systems, the capsules allow consumers to enjoy coffee-house quality java at home. Ten recyclable coffee capsules come packaged in a 100 percent biodegradable bag.
Founder and President Greg Ubert said the move reflects consumer demand. “Our customers have been asking for locally roasted coffee in a convenient, single-serve form,” he said. “Because single-serve brewers account for more than a quarter of all coffee-maker sales, we anticipate solid growth in this market segment.”
At launch, Crimson Cup offers four different single-serve coffees: Armando’s Blend, El Socorro Honduras, Jungle Love and Celtic Grog. The Ohio coffee roaster plans to expand the line based on demand.
Slightly sweet with a nutty undertone, Crimson Cup’s signature Armando’s blend combines medium roasted beans from Central America, Indonesia and Africa.
Single-origin El Socorro Honduras offers grapefruit-lime acidity, floral and honey notes, a liquor-like body and baker's chocolate finish. This Friend2Farmer offering supports 21 farmers in the El Socorro Co-op.
Jungle Love, a Fair-Trade certified organic blend, combines dark-roasted beans from Central America and Indonesia to create well-balanced flavor, a full body and a long finish.
Light-roasted Celtic Grogg coffee beans are flavored with a sweet and creamy blend of caramel, butterscotch, and hazelnut flavors.
Crimson Cup’s convenient coffee capsules are available online and at select specialty grocers including Weiland’s Market, The Hills Markets and Celebrate Local in Columbus. Packs of 10 single-serve capsules sell for a suggested retail price of $9.95.
