Green Mountain Coffee Retires 23 Varieties of K-Cups
Over at the The Shoffee Blog we've gotten news Green Mountain will be discontinuing production on 23 varieties of Keurig K-Cups. Some of these K-Cups will be discontinued August 19th and the remainder will be discontinued on October 1st. With every growing business some products must be retired, but we'll really miss the Green Mountain Rainforest Nut, and really really miss Coffee People Wake Up Call. Yes - we know in an earlier post it was the larger pack of Wake Up Calls, but now it's well the blend. We can only hope this does mean more varieties from these roasters in the future as they've made some room in their line of K-Cups.
The full list of K-Cups is after the jump...

I wish there were an economical way that GMCR could release 100% pure origin coffees such as 100% Kona or 100% Blue Mountain. Yes, granted that these 2 coffees are not exactly the cheapest to produce and even the 10% Kona blends are now discontinued in order to allow the crops time to recover, but if it's too cost-prohibitive for 100%, how about a 50% blend instead? I feel that's the only thing missing from Keurig's line-up now... higher-end blends. They want to keep increasing the cost of K-Cups, why not give us a REAL bang for our bucks?
