Marley Coffee has announced a new stock keeping unit (SKU) available at a significant number of Kroger and Kroger subsidiary stores nationwide: 10-count Smile Jamaica RealCup single serve capsules, compatible with most Keurig K-Cup machines.
The chain, which has 2,626 locations across 34 states, now carries the product in a majority of its divisions. Smile Jamaica is a blend of 20% premium Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee. This extends the company’s distribution of two SKUs that have been available at Kroger stores since 2013.
All of Marley Coffee’s RealCup capsules will be transitioning to a recyclable capsule between late July and August.
Rohan Marley, Chairman and Founder of Marley Coffee said, “When we first joined forces with Kroger, it was a major milestone for our company, and we are thankful to see our relationship grow over the years. I am very pleased they are carrying our absolute signature blend, which features coffee from our farm in Jamaica.
Discerning coffee drinkers seek out Jamaica Blue Mountain because it’s the best in the world, so I am confident Kroger customers will love the rich, smooth, and balanced taste of Smile Jamaica.
Not only will consumers be tasting a piece of our heritage, but also like all Marley Coffee single serve products, it will soon be available in our easy to recyclable capsules, which will bring change by reducing the amount of waste produced by traditional single serve cups.”
