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.

That’s why the amazing crew at #SFO wanted to switch things up by communicating these critical health reminders in a different and more memorable way. The result: SFO’s first ever music video, #MaskOnSFO!

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.

The Wait Is Over: Green Beans Launches Highly-Anticipated K-Cup Coffee Pods On Amazon Store!

The Wait Is Over: Green Beans Launches Highly-Anticipated K-Cup Coffee Pods On Amazon Store! 1500 1072 Greg Rabbitt

SAN RAFAEL, CA – Beginning this week Green Beans will launch their new K-Cup Coffee Pod line with their signature House Blend flavor. The Pods will be available in 12-count and 50-count sizes on the Green Beans Coffee Amazon store, with more flavors to follow in the coming months.

A major differentiator for the Green Beans Coffee Pods is the higher actual coffee content in the Pods themselves, boasting 13 grams per Pod, versus most other K-Cups on the market which have between 9 and 11 grams. Green Beans’ signature House Blend is a combination of handpicked beans from South America roasted at two different roast levels: half of the beans are roasted to a caramel medium roast then blended with beans that have been roasted to a deep, dark French Roast.

In addition, in keeping with Green Beans Coffee’s commitment to sustainability the Pods themselves are #5 recyclable and the packaging for both sizes is made from recycled materials.

Green Beans Coffee will launch the new K-Cup line with a series of  “snackable” social media recipe videos. Similar to the video campaigns supporting their Cold Brew Home Brew Packets and their Spiced Chai, the K-Cup campaign will show how to make signature Green Beans café drinks at home, as well some elevated K-Cup coffee creations, like the affogato, Keto Coffee, and Vietnamese Cinnamon Iced Coffee.

“The convenience of most K-Cups on the market is offset by the weak flavor. They just don’t hold enough product in the pod to offer flavor profile and richness you’d normally get from drip or brewed coffee,” said Chief Operating Officer Brian Laliberte. “We worked really hard to pack as much coffee into each pod as possible; 3 more grams of coffee per pod than most K-Cups on the market. With our House Blend K-Cups, Green Beans Coffee drinkers get the convenience of a K-Cup AND the same full, rich flavor they’d get from our ground coffee.”

Green Beans Coffee will be quick to take advantage of the versatility and convenience of their new Coffee Pod product line, donating bulk K-Cups and brewers to the Red Cross at Walter Reed Military Hospital with whom they’ve been working during the COVID-19 pandemic. “A lot of essential workers, nurses, and doctors only have a minute or two for a cup of coffee and the convenience and speed of the K-Cups serves them perfectly.” Laliberte said.

Green Beans Coffee partners with the The American Red Cross at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to aid in their fight against COVID-19

Green Beans Coffee partners with the The American Red Cross at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to aid in their fight against COVID-19 1500 750 Greg Rabbitt

San Rafael, CA – In 2008 Green Beans Coffee launched Cup of Joe For a Joe, allowing Americans to buy Service Members deployed overseas their next cup of coffee, and send a personal message right from their computer or mobile device- and get a message back! Now in its 12th year with over 2 million cups of coffee and messages delivered, Cup of Joe For a Joe will allow gifters to round up their $2.50 COJ purchase, or donate an amount of their choice to The American Red Cross at Walter Reed National Military Hospital to help in their fight against the coronavirus.

“This is an all-hands-on-deck moment,” said Jason Araghi, co-founder and CEO of Green Beans Coffee. “As a company, our first action was to ensure the safety of our team members, both corporate and on-location at our cafés around the world. Many companies are stepping up and finding ways to help in the fight against COVID-19.”

“Because supporting America’s Service Members is deeply ingrained in our corporate DNA, we reached out to the American Red Cross at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to see what they needed. In addition to allowing online customers to round up their Cup of Joe For a Joe and Coffee Card purchases, we will be donating a portion of the profits from our Amazon store to Walter Reed as well.”

“Finally, 20 years and 10 million cups of coffee served to American Service Members in combat zones around the world have taught us how a hot cup of coffee can make a difference in someone’s day. We’re sending ground coffee and supplies to Walter Reed to help keep everyone going. We’re in this together, and we’re only going to get through it if we work together. We’re honored to do our part.”
