Keurig Offers Up 3 New K-Cup from Coffee People
It looks like the Pacific Northwest is ripe for places to find new coffees for K-Cups. Keurig has announced that Coffee People--a popular gourmet coffee retailer in the Pacific Northwest--plans to introduce 3 new K-Cups and they will be available to Keurig users both in offices and at home. These new K-Cups will work in your Keurig B40, B50, and B60 brewers.
Varieties in K-Cups will include:
- Black Tiger (R) --Explore the dark side with this full-bodied earthy Coffee People favorite
- Wake Up Call--This full-bodied coffee kicks things off right with its rich flavor and lively finish
- Coffee People Organic--Certified 100% organic, this smooth blend gives you an intense flavor with sweet overtones
Coffee People's roots in Oregon can be traced back to the Saturday Market in Eugene, OR. Small amounts of specialty grade coffee were roasted and offered for sale direct to customers. Word of mouth success at the Market led to the first Coffee People Coffeehouse being opened in 1983 in Portland. Today, 23 Coffee People Coffeehouses serve as gathering places for the most discriminating gourmet "coffee people" in the country. In 1999 Coffee People became part of the Diedrich Coffee Family (NASD: DDRX).

After purchasing my Keurig B60, I bought 20 individual K-Cups, all different varieties, so that I could find out which I liked and which I didn't before buying an entire box of any one kind. After trying them all I can honestly say that Coffee People Black Tiger is absolutely the best…hands down. Being a bit of coffee snob (ok, more than a bit…), I was afraid I would probably have to sacrifice some quality for the convenience of the Keurig brewing system. Turns out I didn’t have to sacrifice a thing. Black Tiger K-Cups brew a Dark, Rich, Full-Bodied cup of coffee that is every bit as good as the conventional high-end coffees, without any trace of that "cheap coffee” flavor that I noticed in some of the other brands. A perfect cup of strong, Bold coffee.
