Marley Coffee Announces Its Has Shipped Over 500,000 Real Cups Within First Month

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Marley Coffee (OTCBB: JAMN.OB), a sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee, today announced that it has distributed over 500,000 Marley Coffee Real Cups™ within its first month of distributing its single serve product. Marley Coffee's Real Cups, which are compatible with most of Keurig's branded single serve k-cup machines, are now available both in the United States and Canada and represents the fastest moving product in the company's history. 

"The response to our Real Cups has been overwhelming both from a consumer review and distributor satisfaction perspective," says Rohan Marley, Chairman and Founder of Marley Coffee.  "Talkin' Blues – our 100% Jamaican Blue Mountain Real Cups, with beans that come directly from our Marley Family estate in Jamaica, has been the top selling item that's being reordered right now.  My objective has always been to move JBM from being a niche item within the coffee industry to something that can be enjoyed ubiquitously by all people.  We thought it would take time for this to happen, but distribution has exceeded my expectations."

Distribution initially started in Canada with London Drugs as the company's anchor retailer in the West alongside a number of Office Coffee Service/ Breakroom companies throughout Canada. 

The United States followed quickly in the same pattern as Canada.  OCS/ Breakroom and online operators throughout the country have picked up Real Cups with key national grocery retailers in the distribution queue. Additionally, redistributors have started coming on board.

"A large part of my coffee experience has been in the single serve category, so I know the opportunities in this channel," says Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee.  "At NCS&V, we had exclusively represented all of Timothy's K-cup business for many years before it was bought.  Out of the gate, our growth for Marley Real Cups is exceeding that growth."

"The key difference in what we did before with Timothy's, and why we believe we'll be even more successful with Marley Coffee is our distribution strategy.  We are selling Real Cups to both retailers and distributors.  Many people have been limited by access to the single serve market and we want to make sure our product is available to anyone to purchase.  Our goal is to build relationships with everyone without restrictions.  We won't depend on lengthy contracts that could possibly limit our customer's opportunity to leverage our products for success.  We want our customers to buy from us because they want to and know that we really value their business and the opportunity to be successful because of them."

Distributors who are interested in the company's exciting redistributor program for Real Cups should contact [email protected] or call 323-556-0746.  Retailers should contact Chris Hopkins directly at [email protected] or call him at 214-202-1776.

Marley Coffee currently offers four varieties in a 24 pack, and 12 packs beginning in March of 2013: Get Up, Stand Up (light roast), One Love 100% Ethiopia Yirgacheffe (medium), Lively Up 5 Bean Espresso (medium dark), and Talkin' Blues 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain® (medium).  The company will also be offering a 36 count variety pack.

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 2.5oz 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 (www.bikecaffe.com/marleycoffee).

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
