K-Cup Coffee Price Increases to 60 Cents a K-Cup


Due to increasing green coffee prices and coffee being at an all time high, K-Cup prices from Green Mountain Coffee have increased to $.60 a K-Cup up from the $.53-$.55 prices for K-Cups we've been seeing over the past year. The price increase makes a 24 count box of K-Cups cost $14.40. Still - we're happy to pay $.60 for amazing coffee and for the choice to have one perfect cup. We're unsure when the price will decrease, but perhaps as the coffee market adjust the price will come back down to the $.55 range.

But don't just blame Green Mountain or K-Cup producers, Starbucks, Peets, and others are all raising prices based on how high coffee has been trading. And coffee has been trading HIGH - just over 99% (yikes) from last year's prices. That means if they can't control it then this price increase will not last as long as the former price increase about 2 years ago.

That's what I did. Once I retired, my Keurig retired along with me. Whole beans have gone up a bit too (when did they switch from 1lb bags to 12oz? Trying to make us think the product hasn't gone up?)...but I can still brew a twelve cup pot for around the price of a single K-Cup.

The convenience and cleanliness of the K-Cup was well worth the extra price when I was rushing around trying to get to work in the mornings. Now, more variety for less money is the way to go.

It is a shame that GMCR is only out to satisfy the greed of its shareholders. Now they have you locked into a proprietary system and have bought up all the roasters and brewer manufacturer they can just keep burning the loyal consumer. Do you really think the price will come down? I say switch back to drip coffee the convenience is not worth the price.
