ST. LOUIS -- Ronnoco Coffee LLC is pouring fresh seasonal flavors for summer. The beverage solutions provider is introducing new lemonade, sweet tea and cold-brew coffee options.
The beverage line includes Camellia’s Sweet Brew Strawberry Mango and Tropical Sweet Brew Tea; Camellia’s Fifty-Fifty Sweet Brew Tea/Lemonade; ready-to-serve strawberry lemonade; and Ronnoco’s wild blueberry flavored cold-brew coffee.
“When the heat of summer hits, consumers crave cool and refreshing flavors,” said Dan Pabst, specialty coffee consultant for Ronnoco Coffee Co. “Our new fruit-forward teas and coffees have the perfect balance of the familiar with the adventurous and give retailers easy-to-prepare and highly sought-after alternatives to carbonated soft drinks, which have experienced a decline in recent years.”
The Camellia’s sweet brew tea comes in a presweetened filter bag, which combines the tea and pure cane sugar. Each bag brews 1.5 gallons of tea.
The company’s wild blueberry cold-brew coffee is also preportioned. Along with the cold-brew coffee, Ronnoco offers retailers its cold-brew dispenser. The patent-pending device uses one chamber to slowly melt ice into the coffee; another chamber is used to keep the brew cold for consumption.
“Cold-brew coffee has experienced a surge in consumer interest, so we aimed to provide retailers a unique flavor profile to appeal to more customers,” Pabst said. “A cool, refreshing summer flavor, the Wild Blueberry Cold Brew Coffee will entice coffee enthusiasts and even non-coffee drinkers to beat the summer heat and try something new.”
Ronnoco Coffee is based in St. Louis. The company blends, grinds packages and distributes coffee brands including Ronnoco, Seattle Roast, Wild Hose Creek, Henderson and Camellia.
