Café La Rica espresso is a unique blend of the finest coffees, offering a fine aroma, thick crema, and a bold flavor true to the authentic Cuban coffee tradition.

Café La Rica, over the past 3 years, has been one of the faster growing espresso brands and this Co-Branding opportunity with the Miami Marlins is expected to further enhance Cafe La Rica’s relationship with its retail partners.

Under the terms of the 3-year agreement, Café La Rica will: provide a branded Café La Rica coffee cart in the main promenade of the ballpark; enjoy messaging on the LED Ribbon Board during the “7th Inning Stretch MarlinsVision feature;” offer 90-second promotional spots on the in-park television network during all regular season home games; utilize first and third baseline rotational signage; and be able to utilize the trademarks of the Marlins on its packaging.

“The Marlins agreement represents a significant milestone for CLR Roasters and its premier brand, Café La Rica,” stated Steve Wallach, Co-Founder, and CEO of Youngevity.

“We look forward to reaching the millions of Marlins fans who attend home games every year. These fans are part of the vibrant Miami community that CLR Roasters has been, and will continue to be, proud to support.”

“We are proud to have CLR’s Flagship brand, Café La Rica, standing alongside the prestigious brands of Pepsi and Budweiser which are also available to purchase at all Marlins home games,” continued Dave Briskie, President and CFO of Youngevity.

Ernesto Aguila, The President of CLR Roasters stated, “This relationship with the Miami Marlins cements Café La Rica as the local brand of our community. The Marlins and Café La Rica are congruent in our message of providing loyal service to our community.

This relationship should help strengthen our ties to this market and support our brand promise for years to come. All our coffees feature the finest growing environment, the best coffee beans available and certified processing capabilities.

Miami is the U.S. gateway to Latin America — its young and vibrant population complements Youngevity, CLR Roasters’ and our Café La Rica Brand’s international audience.”

“With its Latin roots, CLR Roasters has captured the growing appeal apparent in its unique espresso blend from Central and Latin America for authentic Hispanic Cuban Cafecito. Café La Rica was chosen as the ‘Official Cafecito of the Miami Marlins’ because the brand inspires that ‘first class fan experience’ that the Marlins provide.”
