We are pleased to announce the first Keurig single serve coffee store will open this November 2013 not too far from the Single Serve Coffee headquarters. We called it this May, when we heard rumors Keurig might open a store at their headquarters, but it looks like the store will be located in Burlington, MA at the Burlington Mall.
Rendering of the Keurig Store to open November 2013 this Fall in Burlington, MA.
The Keurig Store is just in time for the holiday season, and will provide a unique retail destination offering consumers the opportunity to experience the leading single cup system like never before. Keurig Store shoppers will be able to interact with Keurig brewers and beverages from Keurig K-Cup, Keurig Vue, and Keurig Rivo systems, to determine the brewer and beverages that best match their lifestyle or gifting needs. In addition to providing the full line of Keurig® brewers, the Keurig Store will offer on-site demonstrations, special promotions, new product offerings, and unique Keurig accessories.

UpShot Solution, recently had Red Diamond Coffee based in Alabama, come on board their ever growing single cup platform that is compatible with Keurig K-Cup brewers. Powered by UpShot Filter Technology which is recyclable, Red Diamond's new single-serve program is now being sold online and through various grocery stores. Upshot's "K-Cup" has flow through technology, and is packed to the max with delicious coffee.

Earlier this year, Dunkin Donuts revealed a new flavor to their K-Cup line-up after last year’s new Mocha K-Cups were introduced… Dunkin Donuts Caramel K-Cups. Even though it’s been available for several months, we are just now getting the chance to review it. Better late than never, right? Oddly enough, even though Dunkins advertise these flavors as limited editions, they seem to always be available at various shops whenever we stop by, so we’re not exactly sure what the story is behind that, but hey… all the better (for example, last year’s Mocha K-Cups are STILL currently available at some shops).

Whole Foods K-Cups which are non-affiliated with Green Mountain Coffee have launched in Whole Foods Markets under their 365 brand of coffees. Pictured above, the Vienna Roast Columbian Organic Cup K-Cups are the first of many single cups Whole Foods plans to offer. We are surprised Whole Foods didn't go the recyclable route using the Upshot Solution, but our sources say these are produced in Canada and then shipped to the US markets. That leads us to believe Mother Parker's Coffee or another roaster is producing these K-Cups for Whole Foods under the 365 brand.
Given this development we can safely say - there doesn't seem to be a major grocery retailer that doesn't have their own in house single cup brand. Al of these in-house brands are going after the established K-Cup brewers from Keurig. It's simply amazing in one year to see 1-2 non-affiliated GMCR single cups, and now we can't even keep track of all the after market products for Keurig K-Cup brewers.
It's a great time to own a Keurig K-cup brewer with all of these choices, and we hope to try the Whole Foods single cups in the coming weeks.

AB has found one of our favorite K-Cups while shopping at Target today. Over at the Starbucks counter he found Starbucks Anniversary Blend K-Cup Packs for $14.99 for a 12 cup box. If you've never had Starbucks Anniversary blend it's a complex, full-bodied coffee blend with spicy flavor notes. Starbucks recommends enjoying a cup with a bowl of buttery popcorn and a flip through the photo album. We recommend enjoying it any time.
You can currently get the Starbucks Anniversary blend at Target, online at Amazon.com, and we can imagine Starbucks might be smart enough to celebrate their anniversary by having it in their cafes. Wherever you decided to purchase it you will be happy with this amazing dark rich coffee that's only out once in a great while. Starbucks Anniversary K-Cups will work in any Keurig K-Cup Brewers.

Over at the ShoffeeBlog there's news from the investors call from CEO Brian Kelly of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters of many new products coming from the Keurig division. Keurig 2.0 is one of these new products along with Keurig Water, and Keurig Cold - a Sodastream competitor. Keurig is betting that anything that comes in a liquid (maybe sans Soap dispensing - see yesterday's story) will be coming out of a Keurig brewer.

As the only person in my household to enjoy a nice cup of Joe occasionally, I was on the hunt for a new K-Cup brewer that wouldn't take up much counter space, and also make a fresh cup of coffee each time I wanted one. The Mr. Coffee single serve coffee maker fit the bill.
I saw the Mr. coffee machine and it was smaller and more slim line for the counter top so I bought this as an upgrade for my coffee indulgence. A single serve brewer is ideal for me due to the fact that I want to enjoy the rich strong blends available without the hassle of learning where to get them and the correct way to make them.

Death in a K-Cup is finally here with Death Wish Coffee Single Serve Cups. The strongest most caffeinated cup of coffee in the world you can buy comes packed in 100% recyclable K-Cups. That's music to our ears - because when your heart gives out from drinking 10 cups of Death Wish Coffee in a row, you can safely compost your body making the entire experience 100% environmentally sound.
Seriously - THEY'RE FINALLY HERE! We know certain coffee snobs love to snub Death Wish but when you can drink a cup of coffee brewed from your Keurig single cup brewer with a skull on the top of it - we think you have to. Each pack contains 10 individual cups, and the the solid bottom on each cup ensures that your coffee is never over-extracted, but instead is evenly brewed. This guarantees that you get a perfectly brewed cup of coffee every time.
Each cup contains 20% more coffee than your standard cup, and is compatible with most single serve brewers.

Single serve soup K-Cups are coming - Campbell's Fresh-Brewed Soup will offer Keurig K-Cup brewer owners a hot cup of soup from their coffee brewer. When we first saw the press release we thought it might be April 1st (remember this joke from last year?), but it's not April 1st and yes soup in a K-Cup is coming.
The agreement brings the number one single serve coffee maker and the number one soup maker together to bring you Campbell's Fresh-Brewed Soup. The convenient snack will be prepared at the touch of a button, and a mini-meal from a K-Cup will be produced.

A few months ago, Dunkin Donuts introduced a new iced version of their Original Blend by releasing Dunkin Donuts Original Blend Iced Coffee K-Cups. With the warmer weather of summer unfortunately coming to an end sooner than we'd like, we decided to check out these new K-Cups while they were still available during a recent stop at a local Dunkins shop.
Brewing these K-Cups resulted in the same strong earthy & smoky notes of Dunkins Original Blend which reminded us of walking into a Dunkins shop. Flavor (when taken black) was pretty much the same as well except things seemed slightly stronger than the Original Blend K-Cups. We got the earthy & smoky notes from the aroma and this even remained once cream & sugar were added. While it's not exactly 100% like what you'd get in a Dunkins shop, it's a pretty close runner-up.
