Since 2008, Plaintiff has produced a line of dairy alternative beverages (for use with coffee, tea, etc.) under the BARISTA SERIES trademark.
Defendant distributes a similar non-dairy alternative under the trademark BARISTA BLEND. However, Plaintiff noticed in 2015 that Defendant’s product also bore the BARISTA SERIES trademark (see Exhibit B).
Apparently unable to resolve their dispute over the last year, this lawsuit seeks damages and an injunction against Defendant’s use of BARISTA SERIES.
