Distinctively Yours Single Serve Coffee Cups at Walmart

Distinctivelyyourskcups

AB from Maine  came across the Distinctively Yours K-cups in Walmart yesterday. The only type they are currently carrying is Colombian. The box contains 44 K-Cups for $19.98. Like so many of the cheaper K-Cup offerings hitting the market, we have never heard of this brand nor could I locate a website. Distinctively Yours K-Cups should work in most K-Cup Brewers.

Have you tried these Walmart brand K-Cups?

Update: This appears to be a Mother Parker's coffee branded for Walmart.

Peet's Coffee and Tea Single Serve K-Cups Coming Soon

Peteskcupsimage3

We've received several sets of photos from various readers regarding Peet's K-Cup prototypes. We're not sure if these are Green Mountain approved (we doubt it because we don't see a Keurig seal in any of the photos), but given they are calling them - Peet's Single Cups - we don't think so. We have noticed that on Peet's twitter feed that several people have written in regarding the prototype Peet's Single Cups. They seem to like them. 

Roasts included in the prototype box of Peet's Single Cups:

  • Major Dickason's Blend
  • French Roast
  • House Blend
  • Decaf House Blend

Update: Peet's Single Cups will be available through Peet's retail stores and Home Delivery starting May 1st.

The Unstoppable Rise of the K-Cup

K cupsriseof

The Wall Street Journal gives us their take on the success of the K-Cup. With Americans now getting more than 25% of their coffee from K-Cups, it's no wonder Green Mountain Coffee and their associated roasters also continue to grow and dominate the ground coffee market.

But there is a cost - an environmental one. Green Mountain hoped to change this with the VUE system, and it's recyclable VUE cups. It seems now like it may never happen given all the after market K-Cup knock offs adding to the problem of more Americans drinking K-Cup knockoffs along with the real deal. 

Total K-Cup brewers are in the 12.5 million range with Green Mountain expecting to make that number 16-17 million K-Cup brewers by the end of 2013. More brewers = more K-Cups sold and that means more coffee market share and more environmental impact. We'd really like to see some solution to the K-Cup in the land fill problem, but with the after market doing their own thing along with no real solution from Green Mountain - we believe we're on a one way streak to throwaway-ville.

Review: GMCR Special Reserve Colombia Geisha K-Cups

Review Single Serve CoffeeReviewgmcrspecialreservecolombiageishakcupsIMGP5356

Once Marley Coffee decided to release a rare single-origin coffee with their Jamaican Blue Mountain Real Cups, Green Mountain realized they had missed their chance at being the first company/brand to release a rare single-origin coffee in Keurig K-Cup compatible format. It didn't take them long to fix that oversight as they decided to start releasing their Special Reserve series in K-Cup format soon afterwards. The first flavor in the series is what we're reviewing today... GMCR Special Reserve Colombia Geisha K-Cups.

ReviewgmcrspecialreservecolombiageishakcupsIMGP5336

Hailing from the Cerro Azul region in Valle del Cauca, Colombia Geisha coffee is considered to be amongst the rarest varietals in the World due to it being difficult to grow which makes it produced in specially crafted small batches. It is renowned for its complex flavors which have been described as changing with every sip and it's such a highly-regarded crop that pickers must endure 4 to 12 months of training just to be certified to pick Geisha cherries as such requires a fine touch to preserve all the flavor's subtle notes during the cultivation process. This varietal is also considered to be one of the most sought-after coffees as was evidenced last year by Starbucks when they decided to start selling it in limited runs at an astronomical price of $7 per cup. Thankfully, if you calculate the price per serving of these K-Cups, it works out to a much more reasonable $1.77 instead.
