Keurig Mini B30 Single Serve Coffee Brewer Details

red and white as well.

Keurig, Incorporated has a new addition to its consumer brewer product line - the Mini B30 brewer. We announced last week we had heard rumblings of this new mini brewer for $79, and those rumblings are true. The Mini B30 is basically the Keurig B130 (which we love) for the consumer market.

The Mini B30 brewer is the introduction of a new platform for the Keurig at-home brewing systems. The Mini is a smaller size meaning you can enjoy Keurig brewing at your desk, in your boat, at your vacation home, in your dorm room or just about anywhere. Since there is no water reservoir in the Mini, it takes 3 minutes to heat the water and brew the perfect cup of gourmet coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Just pour in 8 oz of water each time you want to brew. The Mini B30 is the first Keurig brewer available in multiple colors. Retailers will offer the black or white Mini, and the Keurig website will include a vibrant red color.

All Keurig brewers use Keurig's patented K-Cup portion packs. K-Cups are "mini-brewers" that eliminate the hassle of grinding beans, measuring coffee, handling filters and messy clean-up while brewing a gourmet cup of coffee or tea in less than one minute. With over 200 different coffee, tea and hot cocoa varieties from 13 gourmet partners, Keurig meets the diverse taste profiles of just about every single serve hot beverage drinker.

You can read our earlier article on the Keurig Mini B30 here. In the mean time if you can't wait to buy a mini, and need your Keurig K Cup coffee fix, you can always get one of their currently available brewers including the Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, and the Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer.

Keurig Introduces the Mini B30 Gourmet Single Cup Home Brewing System

READING, MASSACHUSETTS (May 1, 2008) - Keurig, Incorporated, a leader in the gourmet single-cup brewing revolution, announced today a new addition to its consumer brewer product line with the Mini B30 brewer.

The Keurig Mini B30 Gourmet Single Cup Home Brewing System

The Mini B30 brewer (SRP $79.95) is the introduction of a new platform for the Keurig at-home brewing systems. The Mini is a smaller size meaning you can enjoy Keurig brewing at your desk, in your boat, at your vacation home, in your dorm room or just about anywhere. Since there is no water reservoir in the Mini, it takes 3 minutes to heat the water and brew the perfect cup of gourmet coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Just pour in 8 oz of water each time you want to brew. The Mini B30 is the first Keurig brewer available in multiple colors. Retailers will offer the black or white Mini, and the Keurig website will include a vibrant red color.

"Keurig's Mini is the fourth generation of brewing technology here at Keurig. This new, smaller model is the result of continued improvement in technology and design based on feedback from Keurig customers," noted John Whoriskey, Vice President and General Manager of Keurig's At Home Division. "We are positioning the Mini as a personal brewer for use in secondary locations like your office, recreational vehicle, vacation homes or dorm rooms. It is ideal for small spaces," Whoriskey went on to say.

You can only order the red model online? What the?!? C'mon!!! Why has there always got to be a catch? Why? First it was news that Bosch wouldn't be releasing the colored Tassimo models until 2009 (and even that is uncertain at this point) and now we find out that Keurig won't be making what may be their most sought-after color available in retail stores?

Hmmm... wait, maybe they're afraid nobody would want to buy the black or white models if they could buy the red in stores? That's the only logical explanation.
