ORRVILLE, OH -- Citing lack of "sustainable demand," J. M. Smucker Co. has decided to discontinue its Millstone Coffee brand.

DiscountCoffee.com has acquired the remaining Millstone Coffee stock. It is now the exclusive Internet retailer of the ground coffee line. Flavors include 100% Colombian, decaffeinated Colombian, Breakfast Blend, Foglifter, Caffe Midnight and hazelnut cream.

Discount Coffee chief executive Kirby Newbury said he expects that Millstone's Foglifter and hazelnut cream flavors will be the first to sell out, based on sales trends and remaining inventories. He added that his company can help customers identify suitable replacements when supplies of Millstone run out.

Discount Coffee, established in 1998, has a catalogue of 1,000 breakroom supplies, coffees and other beverages. It ships most products nationwide.
