kcupvendingmachine.jpg

There's a new giant single serve coffee maker in town that uses K-Cups - a giant Keurig Vending Machine. The Specialty Coffee Business Unit of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMCR), is offering a new full-line vending machine designed for single-cup brewing in high-traffic commercial and manufacturing environments.

The Green Mountain Coffee branded vending machine dispenses K-Cup portion packs and is used in conjunction with a Keurig Single-Cup Brewer. The Green Mountain Coffee vending unit holds more than 1,000 K-Cup portion packs. Operators can choose to offer up to 12 product selections from more than 60 coffees, teas, and hot cocoa in K-Cups from GMCR’s family of brands, including Green Mountain Coffee, Tully’s Coffee, Newman’s Own® Organics Coffee, Caribou Coffee®, Celestial Seasonings Teas, and Café Escapes. The machines are paired with Keurig’s proprietary brewing system, which delivers the proper amount, temperature and pressure of water to ensure a perfect cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa, in under one minute.

We want one of these for the Single Serve Coffee headquarters - we're not sure where will put it, but we think we can work it out.

Vended K-Cup Portion Packs And Keurig Brewers Transform Coffee Vending Experience

WATERBURY, Vt.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Single-cup brewing technology is changing the way people brew and enjoy their coffee. Now coffee lovers can get a great cup of coffee in an unexpected place: a vending machine. The Specialty Coffee Business Unit of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMCR), is offering a new full-line vending machine designed for single-cup brewing in high-traffic commercial and manufacturing environments.

The Green Mountain Coffee® branded vending machine dispenses K-Cup® portion packs and is used in conjunction with a Keurig® Single-Cup Brewer. The unit is designed for large venues that sell coffee and other beverages to employees or visitors. The new machine allows vending operators to meet the demand for high-quality coffee with an economical, low maintenance, easy-to-use, sanitary solution. Tully’s Coffee® and Caribou Coffee® branded machines will be available later this summer.

“This innovative system will make people think about coffee from a vending machine in a whole new way,” says T.J. Whalen, Vice President of Marketing for GMCR’s Specialty Coffee Business Unit. “With its value proposition of quality, variety and convenience, this unit brings a coffeehouse experience to vending locations.”

The Green Mountain Coffee vending unit holds more than 1,000 K-Cup portion packs.

That is awesome. Sure beats the Van Houtte K-Cup setup we have at work. I suppose the companies purchasing these units will decide how much they want to charge per K-Cup or is GMCR requesting a specific MSRP? Our Van Houtte setup is $1/cup and you have to have exact change (Canadian $1 coin) as I don't think it accepts quarters.
