Kansas City Current and Messenger Coffee Launch New Coffee Blend

Today, the Kansas City Current and Messenger Coffee released “Wake Up! It’s Match Day,” a new coffee blend created with input from Current players. In line with the KC Current’s commitment to invest a portion of all partnership revenue back into the community, each sale of the coffee will benefit Synergy Services, an organization that provides resources to create a world free of family violence.

“We are thrilled to partner with Messenger Coffee and Synergy Services to release the Wake Up! It’s Match Day blend,” said KC Current Team President Allison Howard. “Collaborating on this special blend was not only fun but also purposeful as it benefits an incredible local organization.”

Like the Current’s commitment to becoming the best women’s football club in the world, Messenger is committed to bringing customers the best global coffee selections. The “Wake Up! It’s Match Day Blend” celebrates local and international partners making their communities a better place. The blend features hints of toffee, honey, grapefruit and molasses.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with KC Current on this new blend benefitting Synergy Services,” said Suzanne Gunning, vice president of marketing at FairWave Coffee Collective. “Being able to collaborate with the team on the flavor for the blend was such a fun process and we couldn’t be happier to be giving back to such an important cause.”

Kansas City Current players Addie McCain, Sam Mewis, Lynn Williams and Jenna Winebrenner participated in a cupping to help select the flavor of the blend. Using this method, the taster is measuring the natural taste, texture, sweetness, acidity, and aftertaste of the coffee. During their guided cupping, the players got to taste each component of the coffee to help decide the overall taste and experience of the blend.

“We are so honored by this partnership with KC Current as we work together to take action to create a community free of family violence,” said Jennifer Hurst, director of development at Synergy Services. “KC Current has been incredibly generous in both their time and sharing resources such as this with our clients. With each bag you purchase, you are saving a life.”

Beginning today, “Wake Up! It’s Match Day” is available at all Messenger Coffee locations and online.
