A Cup of Caring: Gloria Jean’s Coffees Exclusive Tumbler Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

LOS ANGELES – This October, Gloria Jean’s Coffees and its customers have a unique opportunity to sip and support.

Gloria Jean’s is releasing an exclusive tumbler that coffee-lovers can feel good about purchasing – it reads, “My coffee is strong and so am I”. The tumblers, pink in color to represent Breast Cancer Awareness Month, are available at participating Gloria Jean’s shops and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The funds will be used to support breast cancer prevention and finding a cure.

“Breast cancer has impacted far too many of our friends, family members, customers and work colleagues. From heart-wrenching stories to tales of amazing bravery associated with this horrible disease, we hear them in our shops and giving back is a way we can help make a difference,” said Martin Balcaitis, director of marketing at Gloria Jean’s Coffees. “The symbolic pink coloring of the tumbler and its powerful inscription serve as a reminder that together we must persevere and unite in the fight against breast cancer.”

More than three million women and thousands of men live with breast cancer today, but increased awareness and funding has helped to advance treatment, making it more successful for those who are diagnosed.

Gloria Jean’s Coffees encourages everyone to show their support for increased breast cancer research and prevention this October and for many months to come. The tumbler has a suggested retail price of $14.99.

Fan Favorites are Back this Fall at Gloria Jean’s

This fall, customers can fill their pink tumbler with specialty coffee drinks prepared at home with Gloria Jean’s whole gourmet coffee beans or at their local shop. These drinks feature Gloria Jean’s signature cold brew concentrate, a recipe that requires 18 hours of steeping. This cold brew concentrate is used to flavor the Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple Nut Chiller and mixed with milk and then steamed creating a rich base for the lattes. Available now through Nov. 6, 2016 at all locations, Gloria Jean’s is ushering in autumn with a collection of fan favorites including:

• Caramel Apple Nut, available as a hot latte in store, as a Chiller and as whole beans for home or office enjoyment, this silky, seasonal flavor is best when topped with whipped cream and caramel sauce; tart apple balances rich caramel and candied pecan for an unforgettable fall treat

• Pumpkin Spice, served as a hot latte and Chiller as well as in whole-bean bags to go, derives its full flavor from blends of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg

• Caramel Pecan Roll, sold as whole beans, there is no better way to welcome an autumn day than with the buttery overtones of caramel and nutty pecan flavors that evoke the essence of comforting fall desserts

Roasting all of its own coffees, Gloria Jean’s Coffees maintains a strong commitment to providing fresh, premium blends ranging from light to dark varieties for its guests. In addition to its award-winning origins and blends, the brand is also well known for its flavored coffees and specialty beverages such as its signature chillers, mochas, lattes and hot cocoas.
