JOFFREY’S COFFEE & TEA CO. LAUNCHES NEW DISNEY MICKEY’S 90TH ANNIVERSARY BLEND ALONG WITH EXPANDED RETAIL DISTRIBUTION OF FRENCH BISTRO AND ORGANIC PERU ALTO MAYO DISNEY SPECIALTY COFFEES
TAMPA, FL (May 30, 2018) – Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company, the official specialty coffee of Walt Disney World® Resort, Disneyland® Resort, and Disney Vacation Club, has teamed up with Disney to release three unique and brand-new blends in the grocery coffee category. Beginning this August, customers will be able to enjoy these select Joffrey’s co-branded Disney specialty coffees by purchasing bags online and in stores nationwide.
To honor 90 years of Mickey Mouse, Joffrey’s will introduce Disney Mickey’s 90th Anniversary Blend: a smooth, medium-roasted coffee that is classic and delectable. Since his big-screen debut in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928, Mickey has been the global ambassador for The Walt Disney Company. This limited-edition blend will be available late August.
Additional specialty coffees include Disney French Bistro: a full-bodied dark roast currently offered to Walt Disney World® Resort guests. The Disney Organic Peru Alto Mayo is a USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified coffee that is farmed using sustainable methods in a protected area of San Martin, located in the Amazon rainforest. Joffrey’s has worked with Disney and Conservation International to support the Alto Mayo Protected Forest Project in Peru.
“The Disney Specialty Coffee Collection is enjoyed by many guests and enthusiasts who want to taste a special part of the Disney experience in the comfort of their own home,” said Ted Abrams, Joffrey’s CEO. “We have heard from customers looking for our Disney coffees at their local grocery store and we are excited to finally be able to offer and make these coffees available to them at select grocery stores nationwide.”
Previously, all Joffrey’s proprietary coffee blends, created by their Roastmaster Chris de Mezzo, in conjunction with chefs from Walt Disney World® Resort and Disneyland® Resort, were exclusive to signature restaurants throughout the resorts as well as online at www.joffreys.com/disneyparksandresorts.
“Offering our guests another way to enjoy the tastes and delights of their Disney park experience at home is something we’re particularly thrilled about,” said Cathy Cline, Vice President of Disney Corporate Alliances “We’re proud to have collaborated with Joffrey’s to bring some Disney magic into kitchen pantries around the world.”
