The Keurig B70 Brewer - More than 193,000+
Keurig Brewers shipped in the 2nd quarter.
Coffee maker Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. on Thursday said net income rose 89% in the fiscal second quarter as it more than doubled the number of Keurig brewers shipped to customers. Doubled. Wow. About 193,000 Keurig brewers were shipped, more than double the 84,000 shipped in the year-ago quarter. Shipments of its K-Cup single-serve packs rose 68% to 155 million.
We also know that Green Mountain Coffee has opened new facilities to make more K Cups, so there will be no shortages of K Cups as the demand grows exponentially from all of these new customers. Revenue rose 46% to $120.9 million from $82.8 million last year which is also pretty amazing given the current economic situation in the US.
This is going to be another banner year for Single Serve Coffee, let's hope some of the other single serve coffee makers also continue to have the same success.

Timothy's Coffees of the World Inc. recently introduced White Hot Chocolate K-Cups for Keurig. This is the first white hot chocolate K-Cup developed for use in Keurig single cup brewing systems, but not the first Hot Cocoa or Hot Chocolate K Cup. Green Mountain introduced Hot Cocoa K Cups last year, and it has been one of the top selling K Cups for the Keurig K Cup brewers.
We have to say we were a bit shocked when Timothy's decided to go the white chocolate route instead of straight up hot chocolate, but the results are very solid. The hot white beverage which looks like whipped milk, is both sweet and interesting.

One question we get all the time is, "What Keurig K Cup Single Serve Coffee Brewer is right for me?" Well, one way to answer that question is on price and features. It's really hard to beat the Keurig B40 Single Serve Coffee brewer at $99 on price, and the features on the Keurig B40 won't turn you away either.
Basically as you go up in price with the Keurig line with the Keurig B60 and B70 you get auto-on, a clock, different brew sizes, and some blue LED and stainless steel accents on the Keurig brewers. If you aren't looking for any of those bells and whistles, then the Keurig B40 is perfect for you (please read our thoughts and impressions on the Keurig B40 and B60 to get even more details).
The Keurig B40 produces the same quality cup of single serve coffee that the Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers do.
Here's the list of features of the Keurig B40:
- Two brew sizes: 7.25 and 9.25-oz. cups
- Removable 48-oz. water reservoir
- Easy-clean plastic drip tray
- Automatic shut-off option
- Water level sensor.
We can't but recommend the Keurig B40 for it's value and price. You'll get into the world of single serve coffee for only $99, and you'll have the ability to use over 200+ K Cups and the Reusable My K Cup coffee filter as well.

Nick Lazaris with the Keurig B70 just two years ago.
Single Serve Coffee continues to evolve and change - Nick Lazaris has decided to move on from Keurig. He brought us all of the amazing single serve coffee machines that Keurig had currently shipped, bringing to both the office and home single serve coffee. We wish him well on his endevavours this year, and hopefully he'll continue to stay in the coffee world and perhaps make a new start making interesting products somewhere else.
From the Release:
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (together with its subsidiary, “the Company” or “GMCR”) (NASDAQ: GMCR), announced today that Nicholas Lazaris, President of Keurig, Incorporated, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GMCR, has resigned to pursue other career opportunities and has entered into a separation and transition agreement with Keurig. Under the terms of this agreement, Mr. Lazaris will continue to serve as President of Keurig until June 16, 2008 or the date on which his successor commences employment, whichever is earlier. To support a smooth transition, Mr. Lazaris will continue to be an employee of Keurig until August 15, 2008, providing assistance as needed. Following his employment, Mr. Lazaris will serve as a consultant in Keurig’s patent infringement litigation pending against Kraft. The Company has retained an executive search firm to assist it in the recruitment of a new President of Keurig.
Mr. Lazaris and the talented Keurig leadership team have made history by leading the evolution in coffee from drip brewing to single-cup brewing. Under Mr. Lazaris’ leadership, Keurig first brought its patented, innovative single-cup brewers to offices in the late 1990s and now is the single-cup market leader in offices. In recent years, Keurig also successfully entered the home market with several new models, again establishing it as the market leader in single-cup brewers. Most recently, a model was introduced for in-room brewing at hotels, further expanding Keurig’s market potential. Keurig has sold over 1.5 million single-cup brewers life-to-date in North America. In turn, these brewers have created demand for over 2.5 billion K-Cups that have been shipped by Keurig’s licensed roasters and enjoyed by gourmet coffee, tea and hot cocoa lovers nationwide.

We recently spent two days at Green Mountain Coffee's Java University (we'll have a full story soon), and found a very interesting K Cup supporting a worthy cause. What was really surprising about the Heifer Hope Blend K Cups is the fact we had no idea the Heifer Hope Blend actually supports livestock sharing, and you'd think we would given the fact we grew up in a dairy farming area in Northern Maine.
The Heifer Hope Blend is from the La Voz cooperative near lake Atitlan in Guatemala, which is one of the coffee communities served by Heifer International. Green Mountain Coffee made this coffee to support Heifer International's goal of providing a sustainable source of income through livestock and training. Heifer International has given millions of families the gifts of self-reliance and hope in this way.
We've now had several single serve coffee cups of the Heifer Hope Blend K Cups, and it's one of the most interesting yet mild roasts we've had in quite some time. The Heifer Hope Blend K Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers.

Spring is here and so are Fair Trade Island Coconut K-Cups. We're not sure what they put in these coconut wonders, but the flavor is incredible. With a nose of coconut, and the lightly roasted taste of grated coconut, you can be sure to enjoy a cup of something different in your single serve coffee cup. We look forward to this coffee each spring, and the Fair Trade Island Coconut K-Cups are available now. We'd also like to note the Fair Trade Spring Revival Blend K-Cups are also now available, and we'll be ordering some for a full review soon.
These K Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers.
