SEATTLE, Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The specialty coffee and kitchenware company, Espresso Supply Inc., is excited to announce they've joined with Woodinville, Washington-based Eko Brands LLC. Eko Brands is the pioneer of the earth-friendly, single-serve Ekobrew™ collection of filters and accessories for Keurig® K-Cup and similar brew systems.
Employees of both Northwest brands have joined together and will focus on continued innovation in their product category. "We're proud of the inventive brew solutions Ekobrew offers coffee drinkers," states Espresso Supply CEO, Chris Legler. "By working together with the Ekobrew team we'll increase our reach and continue to flex our creative muscles: developing new products to create ease and affordability in the kitchen."
The Ekobrew collection (www.ekobrew.com) helps consumers: use fresh coffee, save money (up to 80% savings compared to K-Cup packs), stay green (reusable filters mean no cups are left behind) and choose their own coffee. The line offers reusable filters, paper filters, cleaning tablets and a new single-cup brewer (MSRP $9.99 - $129.99). Ekobrew is carried nationally at major retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Kroger, Safeway, Walmart and on Amazon.com.
With this acquisition, Espresso Supply Inc. will expand their audience to serve coffee drinkers who rely on the K-Cup style system at work and home. The brands will launch new product at the International Housewares Show in March.
Ekobrew debuted in May of 2011 and was the #1 new release in the entire Amazon.com grocery category that September. Their Ekobrew Classic filter was one of five Housewares Design Awards Finalists in 2012.
Bonavita's (www.bonavitaworld.com) kitchenware has consistently been touted as "Best Buys" and best-performers by experts including Cooking Light, Food & Wine, GQ, Martha Stewart Living, Men's Journal and the Wall Street Journal. Rigorous, pre-market testing has earned three of the Bonavita electric brewers Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Brewer Certification honors: a classification that's noted and respected by culinary, beverage and consumer experts.
Rattleware is the premier tool collection for the specialty coffee industry. This brand offers everything needed to make the espresso-making process easier including tampers, frothing pitchers, tamping mats, measured shot glasses and more.
Espresso Supply Inc. has been a leader in the specialty coffee industry for 22 years. Espresso Supply's catalog of brands includes Bonavita, the coffee, tea and kitchenware brand, Rattleware and now Ekobrew. Espresso Supply Inc., is headquartered in Seattle, WA with a satellite European HQ and distribution facility in the Netherlands.
