Keurig Single-Cup Brewer Recognized for Outstanding Design

Keurig's B3000 Receives Excellence in Design Award from appliance DESIGN Magazine

READING, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Keurig, Incorporated, a subsidiary of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMCR), announces that its B3000 commercial single-cup brewer has received a Silver Excellence in Design Award from appliance DESIGN magazine.

Keurig's B3000 brewer was recognized in the Commercial/Vending Appliances category of appliance DESIGN's 21st Annual Excellence in Design competition. An independent panel of industrial design experts evaluated entries based on aesthetics, human factors, innovation, and technical merits. Award-winning products exhibited sophisticated technology, intuitive features, an eye-catching appearance, and a focus on consumer convenience.

The Keurig® brewing system and proprietary K-Cup® portion packs were first introduced in offices in 1998 and were highly successful due to the system's speed, convenience, and gourmet-tasting coffee.

The brewer makes a fresh cup of coffee in less than a minute and includes features such as direct line water plumbing, multiple brew sizes to vary brew strength, and automatic K-Cup ejection and storage. The brewer is also vending compatible.

"The B3000 brewer offers the most advanced single-cup brewing technology, and the design of the product garners raves from our distributors and customers," said Dave Manly, VP of Marketing at Keurig. "We've succeeded in creating a bold, distinctive look for our brewers, while making it easy to brew gourmet coffee, tea or hot cocoa one cup at a time."

Keurig leads single-cup brewing in both the home and office. With the Keurig single-cup brewing system, users can choose their favorite coffee, tea or hot cocoa packed in the patented K-Cup portion packs, brew a single cup at the touch of a button, and enjoy a gourmet cup with no mess or clean-up.
