"Access Hollywood" and Mocha Kiss Coffee Again Warm Up the Golden Globes® Red Carpet and Celebrate Borat's Big Win

HOLLYWOOD, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- For the second consecutive year, NBC Universal's hit entertainment newsmagazine, "Access Hollywood," teamed up with Mocha Kiss Coffee, Hollywood's hottest coffee company, to warm up the 64th Annual Golden Globes® red carpet like never before, serving all the decked-out and dazzling celebrities an A-list caffeine boost with some tasty and entertaining twists. Highlights air on "Access Hollywood," Wednesday, January 17, 2007 (log on to AccessHollywood.com to check local time and station).

The red carpet barrista bore an uncanny resemblance to Borat Sagdiyev, the fictional lead character portrayed by Golden Globe winner Sasha Baron Cohen in the controversial film "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," nominated for best comedy or musical film.

Boasting an oversized mustache and a faux-Eastern European accent, Mocha Kiss founder and mastermind Jeremy Gursey manned a specially designed espresso cart equipped to serve Hollywood's elite his coffee, cappuccinos, lattes and signature Mocha Frosts®. To add a twist of flavor this year, the red carpet pick-me-up platform sent the shots of espresso down huge chocolate luges.

"I was excited to work with 'Access Hollywood' on the red carpet for the second year in a row," said Gursey. "To top it off, serving coffee while portraying Borat was a laugh a minute. Being able to act quirky and bizarre like him was a unique experience."

Based on the positive response garnered from red carpet celebrities, including Patrick Dempsey, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Julia Louise Dreyfuss and Sienna Miller, the combination of the hilarious Kazak journalist and the smooth and creamy "Coffee to the Stars" was definitely a hit worthy of a glittering Golden Globe statue.

"We upped the ante this year adding flavor and entertainment to our signature Golden Globes® red carpet coffee station," said Adam Jordan, Supervising Producer of "Access Hollywood." "It was great teaming up again with Mocha Kiss this year, whether it was the coffee itself or the Borat-like antics, the stars came to us for their red carpet 'pick-me-up.'"

Mocha Kiss operates retail stores on the lots of Sony Pictures Studios, Paramount Studios and NBC Studios, and has mobile espresso bars that service a number of TV and movie sets, as well as many of Hollywood's most prestigious special events.

The company has been serving its star-quality coffee to the cast and crew of a number of cable and network TV's hit shows, including "Entourage," "Deadwood," "Grey's Anatomy," "House" and "Nip/Tuck," to name a few. Mocha Kiss also is a must-have on movie sets for many actors such as Cameron Diaz and Adam Sandler. Recent movie credits include "Fun with Dick and Jane," "Pirates of the Caribbean 2" and "Spanglish."

ABOUT MOCHA KISS

Mocha Kiss Coffee is the invention of Jeremy Gursey, a former film student at California State University, Northridge. Like many others, Gursey was determined to make it in Hollywood any way he could. In 1994, while working in a coffee house part time and attending school, he came up with his ingenious entrée into the film business. With a mere $100 investment and months of research on coffee flavors and formulations, the young film student perfected his signature Mocha Frost® and launched Mocha Kiss Coffee. His coffee drinks proved a big hit with the entertainment crowd, who soon insisted on Mocha Kiss Coffee on movie and TV sets. Today, Mocha Kiss Coffee is a fixture in Hollywood and is the "Coffee to the Stars." The company's comprehensive variety of coffee flavors is available for purchase at www.mochakisscoffee.com, and can be delivered anywhere in North America.
