SPRINGFIELD, Ill.–Bunn has formed an alliance with David Robinson, son of Brooklyn Dodger great Jackie Robinson, on its My Café single-serve coffee brewer.
In this partnership, Sweet Unity Farms Coffee, a coffee producer founded by Robinson and based in Tanzania, will be one of the brands included in My Café. The brewer will be unveiled at next week’s International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago. Robinson will be at the Bunn booth on March 6 and March 7 to help launch the new brewer.
Robinson founded Sweet Unity Farms Coffee to help improve the living conditions of Tanzanian coffee farmers and their families. The My Café’s technology includes what Bunn described as a “soft pod format,” which involves less packaging than other single-serve formats and is thus more environmentally friendly, according to a company statement.
