Cleveland, Ohio – Deep C Entertainment, the management team for Cleveland reggae icon Carlos Jones, announced today that they have signed a new production, licensing and distribution agreement with the Cleveland Coffee Company for Jones’ private label coffee – the “Positive Vibrations” line. Jones, who originally launched his private label coffee in 2011, stated that he felt that Cleveland Coffee “provided a better fit with more support” than his previous roaster. Jones also said, “What is really important to me, is that the quality is of the highest standard. I’ve spent some time at their warehouse and have been impressed with the quality of their operation. I’ve been familiar with Cleveland Coffee for quite a while, so having them put together my signature blend is really a dream come true.” Their retail footprint includes distribution to Heinen’s and Dave’s Supermarkets to name a few. Positive Vibrations coffee is also available for schools and non-profits to sell as a fundraiser for their organizations.
Jones spent time with staff from Cleveland Coffee, developing a custom blend and a new look for the packaging. In addition, this new deal will have a charitable component involved with a portion of the proceeds going to a charity of Jones’ choosing. This year, that charity will be The Alive Inside Foundation, an organization that uses music to connect with Alzheimer’s patients by providing the music of their youth to them on pre-programmed headphones. Carlos Jones & the PLUS Band performed for the first benefit concert put on by the group – Rock Against Dementia at Brothers Lounge in 2017. From Wayne Mesker, head of the Cleveland Chapter of Alive Inside, “On behalf of myself and the entire Alive Inside organization, I would like to extend our respect and express our sincere gratitude to Carlos Jones for his continuing support of our efforts to improve the quality of life for those living with dementia, using music as a means of connection.”
