Green Beans’ Best-Selling Spiced Chai Tops Amazon’s Hot New Releases

Green Beans’ Best-Selling Spiced Chai Tops Amazon’s Hot New Releases 2500 1664 Greg Rabbitt

Green Beans’ Spiced Chai has been a favorite among Green Beans Coffee drinkers for over a decade. Now it’s finished 2020 in the number 1 spot on Amazon’s Hot New Releases list for Chai, topping household names like The Coffee Beans & Tea Leaf and Celestial Seasonings. 

“We’re thrilled Amazon shoppers are starting to discover our Spiced Chai, it’s been a best-seller in our cafés and online for over two decades,” said Elevate Gourmet Brands’ Chief Operating Officer Brian Laliberte. “We launched it as a complement to our coffee offerings in our cafés, and customers immediately loved it. The Spiced Chai latté is delicious on its own, but in our smoothies and frappés it really elevates them to the next level. When we first added our Spiced Chai Smoothie on the menu it was an instant hit and outsold other blended coffee drinks the first week.”

To promote the Spiced Chai, Green Beans continues that spirit of playfulness and experimentation with a series of  “snackable” social media recipe videos using the Spiced Chai powder. Flourless Spiced Chai Chocolate Cake, Spiced Chai Roasted Nuts and Spiced Chai Chia Seed Pudding are among the fun recipes Green Beans suggests you try with the Spiced Chai.

The Spiced Chai is available in 1.5 lb and 3 lb pouches on Amazon, and Green Beans will be including the Spiced Chai alongside coffee selections in its forthcoming Green Beans Coffee Tasting Collection launching in early 2021.

Green Beans Coffee was excited to be a part of the video along with gate agents , custodians, airfield crew and engineers.

Green Beans Coffee launches “Cup of Joe For a Vet” with Partner Veterans Community Project 2500 1484 Greg Rabbitt

KANSAS CITY, MO – Starting Veterans Day, Green Beans will donate coffee to veterans in need for every box of K-Cups purchased from their Amazon store. The “Cup of Joe For a Vet” promotion continues their partnership with Veterans Community Project (VCP), a Kansas City-based nonprofit working to eliminate veteran homelessness through transitional housing solutions and social services.

For over a year Elevate Gourmet Brands’® Green Beans Coffee® has supplied coffee and collateral to veteran residents of the Kansas City community. The Cup of Joe For a Vet initiative is the first step in engaging Green Beans customers in the brand’s efforts to support America’s Veterans in the same way their Cup of Joe For a Joe program engages civilians to support deployed Service Members.

“Green Beans Coffee is committed to supporting American Service Members from deployment to discharge and beyond. That’s been at the core of our mission as a company from Day 1; we opened our first café ever in 1998 in Saudi Arabia serving American Service Members. We launched the Cup of Joe For a Joe program in 2008 as a platform that a person in New York or Omaha or San Francisco could use to connect with a soldier deployed overseas by buying their next cup of coffee in real time, at one of our cafes there,” explained Co-Founder Jason Araghi. “COJ even allows them to exchange messages with the Service Member. Sharing a cup of coffee is universal, and Cup of Joe For a Vet connects civilians with veterans here at home in the same way.”

Cup of Joe For a Vet will run through the end of November, Military Family Month. Visit amazon.com/greenbeanscoffee to purchase K-Cups and participate in the Cup of Joe For a Vet program.
