SodaStream Replaces Keurig KOLD for Free

Keurig KOLD is KAPUT

With Keurig KOLD being discontinued it looks like Sodastream is having the last laugh and also the last company that might replace your Keurig KOLD. You don’t have to buy a Sodastream to replace the KOLD - you can simply need to email the photo of you and the machine along with your name, address, phone number and the Kold machine's serial number to info@sodastreamsupport.com. In exchange, former KOLD owners get a promo code for a free SodaStream and SodaStream gets a new customer.

Keurig Kills Kold

Q 100

ˇKeurig has pulled the plug on Keurig KOLD and less than a year after it debuted at $370 bucks last fall. Discounting quickly ensued when it launched in Canada and other places, and consumers were not pleased with the price of the KOLD pods or the machine itself. We also noticed that most of the sodas we tried just weren’t that great given they would cost almost $1 a drink. Why pay a $1 when you can simply buy a case of Coke for much much less. The bad news is 130 people in Vermont will lose their job, but the glimmer of light is Keurig has supposedly learned for future beverage projects what to do and not do.

Keurig Ditches 2.0 - Rebrands Old 1.0 Brewers as "Classic Line"

Keurig 2016 brewers no drm

Everything old is 'new' again (sans DRM). SH has written in that ECS Coffee is starting to sell Keurig branded brewers with no DRM. That’s right - any K-Cups will work in this K-Cup brewer unlike the Keurig 2.0. Elite is now the K50 Classic, K10 Mini Plus is now the K15 Mini Classic.

From what we can tell, other than printing the new Keurig logo on the lids, nothing has changed from the old 1.0 versions. These are the same old non-DRM models we've had for ages. Also the Keurig 2.0 models are now called “Keurig PLUS”.

Pretty exciting news in what has become a not so exciting debacle of the Keurig 2.0 and KOLD.

Check them out Classic Line here and PLUS here.

Canadian Update: Starbucks Sulawesi K-Cups / Sweet and Creamy Donut House K-Cups

Sulewasi kcups

SH has an update on some K-Cups and thoughts of what Canadian coffee drinkers want in a K-Cup.

Noticed these at my local Starbucks yesterday. Grabbed a box. To be honest, it tastes just like every other Starbucks dark roast I've had before... can't really determine anything of note. Maybe adding some cream might reveal some of the notes they're mentioning on the packaging, but I haven't tried that yet since I usually always drink coffee black.

As far as what's new for K-Cups in Canada, it seems Keurig Canada are trying to capitalize on a Canadian vice most Canucks are practically born with (myself excluded)... a Tim Horton's "double-double". Traditionally the most popular drink to order at a Tims in Canada, a double-double is a Tim Horton's regular roast with 2 creams & 2 sugars. It makes for a (what I find sickeningly) sweet coffee.

Sweet creamy donut house coffee cab2c en pdp

Well now Keurig has introduced their Donut House Sweet & Creamy Double-Double K-Cups (as a direct response to Nescafe's 3-in-1 knock-off K-Cups). The K-Cups include ground coffee, sucralose as the sweetener and milk/soy-based creamer all in one K-Cup to produce a much more palatable version of a Tim's double-double. Is it creamy? Kind of. Is it sweet? Yep, but nowhere near as sickening as what Tim's usually does to it. 

It'll remain to be seen if Canadians adopt this as their new K-Cup of choice over a traditional Tim's run (and it makes me wonder if Tim Hortons will create their own "official" version).

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Pods for Keurig Machines

Pumpkinspicelattepods

Later this Fall Starbucks will release release a new line of K-cups featuring the Pumpkin Spice Latte flavor. The new Keurig Green Mountain-friendly pods will include caramel, mocha and vanilla latte flavors. Starbucks released the Pumpkin Spice Latte on Sept. 8—just after Labor Day. The revamped recipe now includes real pumpkin.

Originally launched in 2003, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is flavored with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove and is widely credited with launching the ubiquitous pumpkin-spiced flavor craze. It continues to be a seasonal best-seller for the coffee giant.

Is Keurig KOLD Kaput?

Kold kaput

KOLD doesn’t seem to be getting met with warm feelings from potential buyers, and the latest ad from Bed Bath and Beyond has it at $170 off the list price. We think KOLD was overpriced and too large to begin with anyways, but it’s interesting to see how steep a discount the new machine is already getting.

Is this to make way for a better KOLD or have consumers with their wallets and interest told Keurig - KOLD is kaput and to not even bother. We should know in the coming months if KOLD continues, but we do expect Keurig to give it one more go with a smaller KOLD machine.
