Van Houtte to Produce Wolfgang Puck K-Cups for Keurig
Van Houtte is set to produce Wolfgand Puck K-Cups for the Keurig single serve coffee brewing system. We've been missing our Wolfgang Puck coffees as of late, and it's nice to see even more coffees coming to the Keurig system.
There's no official word on the exact line of flavors, but we expect they'll be some returns from the earlier coffee pod days, and hopefully the Wolfgang Puck Rainforest K-cups will appear from the coffee abyss.
The Wolfgang Puck K-Cups once they are released will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.
