Launched in August 2012, RealCup™ capsules are now available to consumers in a variety of coffee and tea blends on amazon.com, amazon.ca, and at select retail outlets in Canada and the U.S. The RealCup™ brand is also available to Office Coffee Services and Foodservice providers across North America as single-serve capsules become increasingly popular in business, restaurants, and bars.

Mother Parkers drew on 100 years of experience and innovation in the coffee and tea industries to develop RealCup™. RealCup™ uses a unique, patented filter design that delivers full flavour because it is optimized for brewing performance, allowing more of the coffee and tea flavour to pass through. RealCup™ is K-Cup® brewer compatible, but is not affiliated with K-Cup® or Keurig Inc.

"RealCup is changing the single-serve capsule market by offering alternatives that deliver great taste in the cup for consumers and foodservice operators," said Jeffrey Zietlow, Director of Marketing for RealCup™.  "With partners including quality coffee brands like Brown Gold®, Martinson® and Marley Coffee™, as well as the popular Higgins & Burke™ brand of teas, developing a capsule technology that can maintain the true taste of a hot beverage was a top priority."

The popularity of RealCup™ as a single-serve capsule alternative is driving rapid growth in production and Mother Parkers plans to expand the number of coffee and tea blends and flavors available in RealCup™ capsules in 2013.
