Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. Changes Name to Keurig Green Mountain, Inc.

KGM LOGO

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. has announced a company name change to Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. The new name is in effect immediately, and the company will retain its ticker symbol of 'GMCR' on the NASDAQ stock exchange. The name better reflects how much of the company has Keurig products in the future of what started as a collaboration and is now a full blown effort. GMCR Canada Holding, Inc., also becomes Keurig Canada Inc. effective immediately.

Given the future of Keurig 2.0, Keurig Single Serve Soda (with Coca Cola on board), the company name change makes sense. 

'Our new name better reflects who we are as a Company today and captures our aspirations for the future,' said Brian Kelley, Keurig Green Mountain's President and CEO. 'The name Keurig Green Mountain brings together our two strongest brands, Keurig and Green Mountain Coffee, into one single and powerful corporate identity that symbolizes the strength of our business and the unity of our team, while also recognizing our strong heritage.' 

The new visual identity, like the new name, draws from elements of the Company's former corporate visual identity and its Keurig brand identity.

If you want to learn about the new logo (which is basically a K on it’s side) see the video on the Company's newly branded website at www.KeurigGreenMountain.com.

Why Do You Drink Single Serve Coffee?

Coffee Beans Photographed in Macro

The rise of single serve coffee and one cup wonders over the past 10 years hasn’t been that surprising, and the ease of use and variety of coffee it’s brought to us has been stunning. Somedays we often wonder how we’d ever go back to drinking a cup from a pot of coffee, and if we’re even interested in anything but the perfect single cup of coffee.

What do you drink single serve coffee? Why do any of us drink single serve coffee? We have compiled a list of our thoughts on the matter and would love to get yours.

Keurig Cold Single Serve Soda - Coca-Cola and Green Mountain Coffee Partner

 

Keurig Cold Single Serve Soda Pods from Coke

The Coca-Cola Company and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. have announced the companies have signed a 10-year agreement to collaborate on the development and introduction of The Coca-Cola Company's global brand portfolio for use in GMCR's forthcoming Keurig Cold at-home beverage system. The companies also entered into a Common Stock Purchase Agreement whereby The Coca-Cola Company will purchase a 10% minority equity position in GMCR.

As part of the strategic collaboration, GMCR will be The Coca-Cola Company's exclusive partner for the production and sale of The Coca-Cola Company-branded single-serve, pod-based cold beverages. The two companies also will explore other future opportunities to collaborate on the Keurig platform.

Some key highlights from both parties regarding the Keurig Cold Single Serve Soda platform:

  • 'With The Coca-Cola Company as a global strategic partner in our multi-brand at-home Keurig Cold beverage system, we believe there is significant opportunity to premiumize and accelerate growth in the cold beverage category..."
  • "...The Coca-Cola Company's brand leadership and global footprint with GMCR's innovative technology, together we will be able to capitalize on the many exciting growth opportunities in the single-serve, pod-based segment of the cold beverage industry. 
  • GMCR's Keurig Cold single-serve beverage system is currently under development with expected availability in GMCR's fiscal year 2015. 
  • Keurig Cold will use precisely formulated single-serve pods to dispense freshly-made cold beverages including carbonated drinks, enhanced waters, juice drinks, sports drinks and teas in consumers' homes with the one-touch simplicity, quality and variety

Imagine being able to make Coke at home? Is this going to happen? You could make any Coca Cola product at your leisure? If this comes true the Keurig Cold could be amazing. If they don't let you make Coke at home - then it's going to be just a large disappointment.

It's also very interesting that Keurig Cold will be a single serve soda pod platform. SodaStream is not. It makes a larger bottle of soda, so this might be the angle that makes Keurig Cold stand out from other soda systems.

You can read about our earlier coverage of Keurig 2.0 and Keurig cold here. So far - the earlier rumors are becoming true.

Dunkin' Donuts Cereal - We Want Some

Dunkin donuts cereal

Apparently Dunkin' Donuts had their own breakfast cereal on the USA grocery store market back in 1988-89. SH bought a book for a cereal-addicted friend who wants to open up his own "cereal store" some day and was surprised to see this listed. It’s a bummer the cereal wasn’t sugar frosted mini-chocolate donuts, but we’re assuming the mini-chocolate Os are probably sugary enough. We love the FREE flashlight as long as you can get through two boxes of this cereal. And there is of course the Dunkin’ Donuts spokesperson with that famous moustache.

"The Great American Cereal Book: How Breakfast Got Its Crunch” is available on Amazon.com, and it features many other cereals you probably have been missing.

Dunkin' Donuts - Friends Don't Let Friends Drink Starbucks

Dunkin Donuts Friends Dont Let Friends Drink Starbucks

Presented with very little comment, it looks like Dunkin’ Donuts is tapping into the feeling most New Englanders have about Starbucks coffee. Thanks to AB for sending this in - my grandfather who spent every morning having coffee and a donut at Dunkin’ Donuts is smiling from the afterlife.

Green Mountain Iced Espresso Latte Drinks in Mocha and Vanilla

Green Mountain Iced Espresso Latte Vanilla Mocha

 

AB from Main has spotted while shopping at Shaw’s today in Bangor Maine two new offering from Green Mountain Coffee. Green Mountain has decided to jump on the iced beverage bandwagon and offer two new drinks - Espresso Iced Latte in Vanilla and Mocha. The come in 50.7 oz containers and run $4.99.

It makes sense from a branding and drink alternative to their current single serve coffee offerings. If Starbucks and other coffee houses are going to have iced beverages available the Green Mountain brand must be at the same level and offer the same drinks. We're imagining these two iced coffee drinks are not made by Green Mountain directly, and a third party relationship has evolved to create them.

Are you currently enjoying any of the iced coffees in your local grocery store? We're partial to many of the iced offerings from Starbucks, and there are a few others we've been interested in. Sound off and let us know if you'll be trying out 50.7 oz of vanilla and mocha lattes. In the mean time we'll be on the look out for these two lattes, and can't wait to pour a single serve coffee glass full.

The Humble Cup - Single Serve Pour-Over Coffee Packet

The Humble Cup Single Serve Coffee Pourover packetPhoto (Betty Hallock / Los Angeles Times)

The latimes.com has found another great single serve coffee product - The Humble Cup. It's an instant pour-over coffee filter and dripper all in one. You open the Humble Cup and attach it to your coffee cup and add hot water. In a few minutes you'll have amazing coffee.

The Humble Cup is highly portable, and packaged in a sturdy foil-lined paper packet. Since it's one cup of coffee in a packet, you can take one just about anywhere you want to bring one, and all you need is hot water when you arrive at your destination.

We're not sure of the Humble Cup's nationwide plans, but right now it's available in the LA area. It's one of those great ideas that could be really great for local roasters to get their fresh roasted coffees in a more portable format.

Atlas Carbonized Coffee-infused Socks - Perfect for Stinky Feet

Atlas Carbonized Coffee Infused Socks

The Ministry of Supply has funded on Kickstarter a project to make your feet a little fresher - Carbonized Coffee-infused socks. They claim it's like a Brita filter in your shoe. If you're tired of stinky feet that are also in pain, then your socks are to blame. We're big on running and cycling and can assure you if you don't have the right socks the job will take a lot more pain and effort to get done and be uber stinky. The Ministry of Supply takes this same approach to your long work day, and the Atlas filter in the socks will get your day complete with a freshness unmatched by other socks.

3D Printed Sugar Is Incredible

3dprintedsugar.jpg

The Sugar Lab has taken 3D printing to the next logical level by using sugar and cool shapes that we're craving to have in our coffee. Confectionary treats always seem to be on the cutting edge 3D shapes from lollipops of amazing shapes to printed cookies so it's not surprising someone decided to get into the 3D printed sugar business. The entire project has taken over 2 years to come to fruition, but we think the results speak for themselves.
