"The Two Rivers Coffee company launched its first products in April of 2012. In its early days, TRC was making single serve cups in a small manufacturing plant where the company established the Brooklyn Bean Roastery brand and perfected the development of a proprietary manufacturing process which was not available on the market. TRC became a pioneer in introducing Keurig-compatible filtered single serve coffee cups and the experience in product engineering led to the design of our patented unique tension-based filtered system. Today, Two Rivers Coffee is a leading independently owned single serve beverage company which designs, brands, manufactures, and distributes single serve products nation wide to thousands of retail stores in addition to dozens of online outlets. TRC manufactures single serve coffee for its own brands as well as licensed products for established brands and provides private label brands for other roasters and retail chains. TRC also make single serve teas, hot cocoas, ciders, and cappuccino drinks under its own brand as well as high end licensed brand names, and is currently in discussions to provide other gourmet hot beverages.
Two Rivers Coffee currently offers a broad product line consisting of over 60 coffee products with standard popular coffee roasts, a myriad of flavored coffees, as well as a broad selection of teas and hot cocoas. In total, TRC has over 100 unique beverage choices across 11 brands with more to come in the near future. We’ve put strong focus on product innovation combined with sharp execution to keep our products and brands “on point” with our customers expectations. Most of TRC brands resonate with consumers as products that are young, modern, and trendier than other brands available on store shelves today. The packaging is bold, innovative, and clever which differentiates it from its more conservative competitors.
The TRC corporate culture is to keep pushing the boundaries in every part of the business to ensure that we are not following others but instead setting the trends in our industry."
I was recently given the opportunity to review Two Rivers Iced Tea for Keurig K-Cup Brewers. This is frost iced tea that comes in three different flavors: lemon, raspberry, and strawberry lemonade. Let me start by saying I'm not a tea person, at least not straight up tea, but I occasionally like a nice flavored tea.
Anyway, my least favorite flavor of these three was the lemon. In my opinion, it had too much of a tea flavor and not enough lemon flavor, so someone who normally drinks tea would love this one. Needless to say, I couldn't finish an entire glass of it.
The raspberry was a different story. It did have a tea flavor but only very slight. You can definitely taste the sweet raspberry flavor. It was rather refreshing and is a tea I could occasionally enjoy more of.
My favorite tea of the three was the strawberry lemonade. It hardly tasted like tea at all, which was perfect for me, but I'm not sure a hard core tea lover would enjoy this one so much. It had a nice strawberry lemonade flavor that wasn't too sweet or too tart. It was very refreshing. It also had a very nice aroma. This is one that I'll continue to enjoy and would even purchase more of.
