DENVER, Sept. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marley Coffee (JAMN), (www.marleycoffee.com), the sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan-roasted gourmet coffee company, announced that effective immediately, its coffee will be a primary refreshment option at the New York City headquarters of Spotify, the innovative online music streaming service. Marley Coffee recently expanded into the office coffee service (OCS) and food service business with its acquisition of Black Rock Beverage Service in August.
Marley Coffee will be supplied to Spotify by Judson Kleinman of Corporate Essentials, one of the largest independent OCS companies in the New York metropolitan area.
At a corporate event at Spotify's New York City headquarters on Monday, September 23, Marley Coffee provided free coffee to employees of Spotify. The event was set up to introduce the Marley Coffee brand to Spotify employees in conjunction with the addition of Marley Coffee to Spotify's bean-to-cup machines.
Rohan Marley, Founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee, was in attendance to share the company's unique vision for sustainable coffee and to autograph posters for the Spotify staff. Marley Coffee gave away small sample packs of coffee and t-shirts. Earbuds and two small portable music players from House of Marley were raffled to Spotify employees as well. Additionally, the Spotify staff was treated to Jamaican food and streaming music including Bob Marley songs.
Mr. Marley said, "We are enthusiastic supporters of the 'Third Wave Coffee' movement, which considers this delicious beverage to be an artisanal foodstuff like wine, rather than as a commodity. This is just the type of progressive ideal that we think will appeal to the in-house culture at forward-thinking companies such as Spotify. The staff of Spotify is a great target market for us. We hope that if they enjoy Marley Coffee at the office, they will be more inclined to make it a part of their lives outside the office as well."
