Green Mountain Completes Keurig Deal
Looks like the Keurig acquisition by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters has finally closed. We're pretty excited to see the future of Keurig and Green Mountain together, and we're hoping they continue to offer coffee from lots of coffee roasters and not just Green Mountain.
Specialty coffee company Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. said Friday it completed its $104.3 million acquisition of Keurig Inc., which makes single-cup home coffee brewing systems.Green Mountain already owned 35 percent of Keurig, and said in May it would buy outstanding common shares for $99.5 million, as well as unvested options of Keurig workers for $4.8 million. Keurig will keep its headquarters in Wakefield, Mass. and operate as a subsidiary of Green Mountain.

Love the Keurig B60 and using the removable filter so we can use our own coffee. I just wish we were able to use a finer grind. Keurig could make a finer mesh filter so that could be accomplished or make a very small paper filter to fit into it.
Other than that it is a great machine.
Paul Newmans Own de-caf is ok, but a bolder blend would be better. I like to have them on hand for a real quick fix w/o having to clean the removable filter for the good decaf that I buy from Peets.
