Tully’s Coffee Launches New, Improved Website

SEATTLE, WA. (December 26, 2006) – Tully’s Coffee Corporation (Tully’s), a fully handcrafted coffee roaster, announces the launch of its new and improved website. The revamped domain has been designed to better educate coffee lovers and offer the most up-to-date information about Tully’s stores, products and promotions. The new site, which remains www.tullys.com, is currently live.

“Our website is an extension of Tully’s in-store customer experience,” said John Buller, president and CEO of Tully’s. “We put a lot of thought into improving the site’s usability and aesthetics in order to make it a direct reflection of our brand and a resource people will utilize while shopping for, and learning about, our handcrafted coffee.”

User-friendly, More Intuitive
For the redesign, Tully’s enlisted the help of POP, a Seattle-based interactive marketing agency. The site is divided into four prominent categories: “Shop,” “Menu,” “About Our Coffee” and “Tully’s Card.” One of the primary goals was to make finding and purchasing the right coffee a more intuitive process. By using the new “coffee selector” tool, users can utilize a sliding scale to ascertain a coffee’s levels of acidity, body and intensity, select type (single origin, fair trade and/or decaf) and region (The Americas, Africa/Arabica/India and Pacific/Indonesia).

Coffee enthusiasts can also turn to the Tully’s site for information on bean selection, roasting, grinding, brewing and tasting from master roaster, Brian Speckman.

Other key features include the ability to search for Tully’s locations by zip code and multiple criteria, including free Wi-Fi, where Tully’s cards are accepted and drive-thru locations. Customers are also able to add money to their loyalty card, check their balance and register for card protection. Tully’s has also launched TellTullys.com, a customer feedback site where customers can rate their Tully’s coffeehouse experience and give detailed feedback. In addition, Tully’s K-Cups are available for purchase through the new site.
