CLEVELAND– Drink up! Cavs star Matthew “Delly” Dellavedova is teaming up with a local company to create a new coffee.
Cleveland Coffee Company announced on Monday that they are joining with the Australian native to create a unique coffee blend called ‘G’Day Mate!’
The company said the basketball player custom-created the blend while sampling coffee during a recent visit to Cleveland Coffee Company. Delly tweeted about it on Monday, saying he was excited to announce the new partnership.
So, how did this happen? “During one of the Cavs playoff games last year, I noticed that coffee was Delly’s drink of choice, so I approached him with the idea of branding his own coffee,” said Brendan Walton, Cleveland Coffee Company owner.
The coffee is for a great cause, too. Cleveland Coffee Company said it will donate 10% of the proceeds from all ‘G’Day Mate!’ sales to All Faiths Pantry, a Cleveland-based non-profit organization that delivers groceries to those with limited mobility.
The coffee is on store shelves now through the end of June at 40 retail outlets including Heinen’s, Zagara’s and Market District (whole bean only).
