The My K-Cup reusable filter is coming to Keurig 2.0 this Fall.
Keurig was wrong. Wrong about trying to get it’s consumers to want to only use licensed K-Cups and also wrong about consumers not wanting to use the My K-Cup reusable coffee filter for Keurig 2.0. Sales of brewers and accessories are down - way down and Keurig is scrambling to fix the problem. Brian Kelley the President of Keurig has now stated they are rushing to incorporate formerly unlicensed pod brands so that the coffee makers would work with ‘more than 500 varieties across more than 70 brands’ rather than just Keurig Green Mountain coffee.
This also means the My K-Cup reusable filter is coming back this Fall. 'We underestimated the passion that consumers had for this... We shouldn’t have taken it away, we did. We are bringing it back.’ ‘I would tell you the other thing we heard loud and clear from the consumer, while a very small percent of consumers, a very vocal and intense, passionate consumer who really wanted the My K-cup back, what we learned is... that we want consumers to be able to brew every brand, any brand of coffee in their machine and bringing the My K-cup back allows that,’ Kelley said on the call. ‘We took the My K-cup away and quite honestly we’re wrong.’
It’s nice to see we are returning to the 2004 state of single serve coffee, and the only thing left to do is turn off the DRM on the Keurig 2.0 and we’ll all be happy. In the mean time while you wait for more brands the the My K-Cup remember you can use any coffee you want in the Keurig 2.0 by using the Eco-Fill line of products.

If you like music and you like Rock and Roll you’ve perhaps heard of Aerosmith. One of the founding and current members of Aerosmith is Joey Kramer.

We received a set of the Joey Kramer's Rockin' & Roastin' Ethiopian Coffee K-Cups along with two other flavors - Guatemala and Sumatra. We decided on the Ethiopian K-Cups to review but would like to say - all of the roasts were quite good.

While it’s no secret that Canadians have had an ok but rather, shall we say… limited selection of K-Cup brands and flavors when compared to USA over the past several years and that we’ve seen some rather bizarre attempts at making Canadianized versions of existing American flavors such as:
- Kraft’s option to use UpShot Single Cups for their Gevalia Single Cups vs. using their own custom expanding corrugated plastic Single Cups
- McDonalds Canada remaining an unlicensed Single Cup and using UpShot Single Cups instead of being a licensed Keurig K-Cup
- Keurig Canada renaming some Coffee People flavors when the coffees were introduced to Canada (i.e. Jet Fuel became Turbo Caffeine)
- Many more odd changes we won’t get into (trust us, the list goes on and on)
It’s still nowhere as bad as competing single serve coffee choices for machines such as the Tassimo or the now all but dead Nescafe Dolce Gusto (dwindling capsule retail supplies have all but vanished off store shelves and the machines aren’t even sold in most retail stores anymore). Out of all the different single serve coffee machines, Keurig is the only one which regularly releases more than 1 new flavor every few months and when flavors are released, they tend to arrive in batches where you’ll get upwards of 3 or 6 choices at times. The update frequency is also much greater than competing machines (every 3-5 months vs. every 6-10 months or longer).
