Dec. 1, 2014, Waterbury, CT – Keurig
Green Mountain and Community Coffee Company will team up to
bring Community coffee to Keurig portion pack formats for consumer and
commercial Keurig hot brewing systems.

The partners have signed a multi-year licensing, manufacturing and distribution
agreement. The new, licensed Community coffee K-Cup packs are scheduled to launch in spring 2015 for in-home and away-from-home use, with extensions into
K-Carafe packs for the Keurig 2.0 brewing system and Bolt packs for the Keurig BOLT Carafe Brewing System in the future. All Community coffee K-Cup packs will be marked with the Keurig Brewed
seal, indicating the product has passed rigorous testing to assure consistency of quality and taste.

"Consumers tell us that they choose Keurig brewers for the
quality, simplicity, and variety of brands and beverages available in
the system," said John Whoriskey, president of U.S. Sales and Marketing
at Keurig, in a news release. "Welcoming a premium brand like Community coffee into the mix
means the loyal fans of Community coffee will be able to enjoy the
coffee they know and love with the quality and consistency they expect
from their Keurig brewer."

Community Coffee Company, a fourth-generation family-owned
business, has sold premium quality coffees since 1919. The company imports, roasts and
distributes its premium coffees through retail stores, restaurants,
offices, convenience stores, and hospitality channels.

"Community Coffee Company continues to experience explosive growth
and remains deeply committed to providing the highest quality coffee
experience for our customers," said David Belanger, president and chief executive officer of the company. "Partnering with Keurig allows us to further
extend our products in a format that is highly desired by consumers and
we are very excited about this opportunity."

Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
