IMG_7787 “It was a perfect match,” said Judson Kleinman, Owner and President of New York City and New Jersey Office Refreshment giant Corporate Essentials, when talking about the recent introduction of Marley Coffee into the Total 1 whole-bean-to-cup brewers at Spotify. “There was no other coffee that belonged in Spotify.”

Earlier this week, Rohan Marley, co-founder of the Marley Coffee Company and the son of the late Bob Marley was hand at Spotify’s brand new New York City location for the Marley Coffee launch.
Here’s the official news release from Marley Coffee:

Marley Coffee Becomes Primary Coffee Provider For Spotify

Marley Coffee announced that effective immediately, its coffee will be a primary refreshment option at the New York City headquarters of Spotify, the innovative online music streaming service. Marley Coffee recently expanded into the office coffee service (OCS) and food service business with its acquisition of Black Rock Beverage Service in August.
Marley Coffee will be supplied to Spotify by Judson Kleinman of Corporate Essentials, one of the largest independent OCS companies in the N.Y. metropolitan area.
At a corporate event at Spotify’s New York City headquarters on Monday, Sept. 23, Marley Coffee provided free coffee to employees of Spotify. The event was set up to introduce the Marley Coffee brand to Spotify employees in conjunction with the addition of Marley Coffee to Spotify’s bean-to-cup machines.
Rohan Marley, founder and chairman of Marley Coffee, was in attendance to share the company’s unique vision for sustainable coffee and to autograph posters for the Spotify staff. Marley Coffee gave away small sample packs of coffee and t-shirts.
Marley said, in a prepared statement, “We are enthusiastic supporters of the ‘Third Wave Coffee’ movement, which considers this delicious beverage to be an artisanal foodstuff like wine, rather than as a commodity. This is just the type of progressive ideal that we think will appeal to the in-house culture at forward-thinking companies such as Spotify. The staff of Spotify is a great target market for us. We hope that if they enjoy Marley Coffee at the office, they will be more inclined to make it a part of their lives outside the office as well.”
