Caffe D’Amore Selected As Official Coffee Of Pasadena Tournament Of Roses®

Representing both a significant coup and genuine honor within the competitive coffee industry, Pasadena-based Caffe D’Amore has been selected as the Official Coffee of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses® for at least the next three years, it was announced today by Caffe D’Amore’s CEO Chris Julias.

This marks only the second time that a coffee brand has been deemed the Official Coffee of the Tournament of Roses in the event’s distinguished 119 year-old history.

Chef Emeril Lagasse will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 2008 Tournament of Roses Parade, the theme of which will be “Passport to the World's Celebrations,” paying tribute to festivities from around the globe. Given Caffe D’Amore’s roots in the 18th century culture of Northern Italy and popular lines of culturally-varied specialty beverages, this international theme makes the company’s new association with the Tournament of Roses especially timely.
As an Official Sponsor of the Tournament of Roses, Caffe D’Amore’s gourmet line of Bellagio coffee will be featured at every Tournament of Roses event at which coffee is served. The popular Bellagio brand is known for superior quality and flavor, recalling the artisan traditions of Old Italy with aromatic, hand roasted premium coffee blends and fine-quality European-style chocolate and cocoa.

Caffe D'Amore is the Official Coffee of the Tournament of Roses.Says Caffe D’Amore’s Chris Julias, “We are extremely honored to have been selected as the Official Coffee of the Tournament of Roses. As a Pasadena neighbor, we feel an especially strong kinship with the Tournament of Roses, and look forward to working closely with the organization’s talented and devoted staff over the years ahead.”

“Both organizations are Pasadena-based and have much to offer. The partnership is a natural fit; we look forward to working together and providing the fine coffee offered by Café D’Amore to our dedicated volunteers,” said CL Keedy, 2008 President of the Tournament of Roses, regarding the announcement.

The 119th Rose Parade® will take place on Tuesday, January 1, 2008, at 8:00 a.m. (PST), featuring majestic floral floats, high-stepping equestrian units and spirited marching bands from throughout the nation. Following the Rose Parade, at 2:00 p.m. (PST), the 94th Rose Bowl Game® will offer a match up between two championship teams showcasing the best of collegiate football.
