Over at Amazon.com and other places there’s been a ton of complaints about the Keurig 2.0 clock always gaining time. After a week or so of use the clock can gain up to a 1 minute a day. Well SH thinks he might have a solution to this issue.
So I haven't used my Keurig 2.0 in a while, but started using it again more frequently this past week.
I recall we had a few power outages here 2-3 weeks ago and I had to keep resetting the clock in the brewer. Usually, I would use the digital setting for display type, but the clock would always end up showing the wrong time after a few days of me not using the machine.
Decided during the last outage to switch to analog display type, THEN set the correct time again. Well, here we are several weeks later and the analog clock is still showing the correct time.
No idea if this is a fluke or if I'm imagining things but so far, so good. Thought I'd let you know.
Let us know if you try this and how it works for you. We’re also going to put this into motion on our Keurig 2.0 brewer.

Some of the Pumpkin Spice Offerings at Target
AB on a resent trip to Target found the 2015 Pumpkin Spice invasion has started. Seriously - Starbucks recently gave out “secret” codes to ensure customers could start the invasion a few weeks ago, and now it looks like just about every part of the single serve coffee aisle is filled with the flavor of pumpkin plus the spice. THE SPICE MUST FLOW!!!
Do you have a pumpkin spice single serve coffee favorite? Do you order 2-3 cases to ensure the spice will flow throughout the winter months. How many cups of pumpkin spice coffee will you consume over the course of the 2015 Fall/Winter time frame?

SH has news from Canada on Starbucks Hot Cocoa K-Cups showing up and tasting great. We can’t seem to find an American equivalent (Cafe Escapes?) from Starbucks, but we do know they sell the conventional packets here in the states. There’s no need to add anything as skim milk powder is already in the mix.
They’re obviously not the healthiest thing for ya (90 cals, 3g fat, 13g carbs) but they sure are tasty. They’ll also work in all K-Cup Brewers including Keurig 2.0

Café Escapes Chai Latte K-Cups produce one of the best chai latte like drinks we’ve had using our Keurig brewer. We love the chai taste and the spicy finish gives us a boost to our morning, afternoon, or evening. Each box contains 24 K-Cups filled with the the tempting flavors of black tea and exotic spices, smoothed by a splash of milk and sugar. These K-Cups contain milk, soy and tree nuts and highly refined coconut oil.
Café Escapes Chai Latte K-Cups will work in all K-Cup Brewers including Keurig 2.0.

— Bloomberg News
Coca-Cola spent $2.4 billion between February 2014 and February 2015 building a 16% stake in Keurig Green Mountain Inc. That makes the 25.9 million shares of Keurig that Coke purchased are worth just under $1.4 billion after Keurig’s stock has plummeted in recent weeks.
Keurig needs its KOLD machine to be a hit or Keurig’s market cap will continue to fall. KOLD is due to hit shelves next month, and everyone's holding their breath to see if consumers will want it or it might be another VUE or Keurig 2.0.

Given the recent news of disappointing earnings with a 27 percent drop in sales this quarter, Keurig Green Mountain is going to compensate the loss by cutting 330 jobs. 200 of those jobs will be in their Vermont location with another 130 jobs at other offices.
We would never have imagined that Keurig would ever need to layoff anyone given the success in the single serve coffee world. Keurig simply dominates the single serve coffee market, but if you expect profits to keep going up and up and up then it’s no surprise this is happening. Our hearts go out to those possible affected by these cuts, and hopefully it’s a temporary bump in an otherwise non-bumpy road.
