The Martinson Coffee will hit the streets of New York City this fall to show New Yorkers why you can’t fake real, kicking off the #YouCantFakeReal social media sweepstakes that will give one lucky winner a year’s worth of free coffee.
On October 28, 2013, two Martinson coffee trucks will kick start the sweepstakes acting as the destination for entries while traveling around the city and passing out free cups of coffee for one month — exemplifying just what ‘real’ coffee tastes like.
To enter the sweepstakes, coffee lovers should visit the Martinson coffee truck, transpose themselves in the life-size cutout, and upload the picture to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #YouCantFakeReal, all while enjoying a free sample of coffee. With New Yorkers estimated to drink nearly seven times as much coffee as people living in other major U.S. cities, the prize should not be taken lightly. See Martinson Coffee’s Facebook for the Sweepstakes Official Rules.
“This program demonstrates the genuine quality of Martinson Coffee to the consumer on a level that we’ve never had before,” said Dan Mullen, Director of Coffee Category Brands for Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee. “We wanted to make the brand experience fun while offering consumers the opportunity to taste the difference of our coffee. Comparing it to our competitors before making a purchase is important to our consumers and should make for a big win for Martinson.”
The social media launch will run in conjunction with a new city-wide advertising campaign. The ads, featured on New York commuter rail stations, subway stations and the like, will focus on proving why Martinson is the Real Joe.
Martinson RFA bags offer traditional blends like Donut Shop Brew and Mild Decaf, to exotic options like Light Latin Brew, Dark Bold and Rich African. With a percentage of beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, Martinson Coffee helps to promote the rights and well-being of farm communities while protecting wildlife and conserving natural resources.
Martinson is proud to introduce their coffees in RealCup single-serve capsules. Only RealCup single serve cups have the Flavor Max Filter to give you the maximum flavor from your favorite coffees and teas, hence the name. Plus, these single serve cups are compatible for use in your Keurig K-Cup brewer.
Martinson brand coffees are available at many NY Metro retailers including Shoprite, A&P and Big Y, as well as online at amazon.com, coffee.org and coffeeicon.com.
