Full bodied, earthy, and dark does actually describe the Black Tiger Blend K-Cups from Coffee People. We've been drinking several of their blends over the past few days thanks to Jim Evans from CoffeeWhiz.com. We have found the Black Tiger - GRRR!!! to be quite good and very different. These new K-Cups will work in the Keurig B40, B50, and B60 brewers.
If you aren't familiar with Coffee People we wouldn't be surprised. Coffee People coffee shops mostly reside in the Oregon. It's really nice to see these K-Cups as they're a much smaller coffee company, however they were bought by Diedrich in 1999 so that may shed some light on how these K-Cups came to market.
Coffee People’s roots in Oregon can be traced to the Saturday Market in Eugene Oregon. Small amounts of specialty grade coffee were roasted and offered it for sale at the Saturday Market. The first Coffee People Coffeehouse was opened in 1983 on NW 23 Street in Portland.
In July 1999, Coffee People became part of the Diedrich Coffee Family. The rich authentic coffee heritage of Diedrich Coffee and the product portfolio of Coffee People have proved to be a perfect match. While Coffee People continues its creative, local, and innovative approach to coffee service, Diedrich Coffee, a high end specialty coffee roaster, now expertly roasts Coffee People’s special blends according to traditional Coffee People recipes to honor the heritage of this concept, pioneered in Portland.
What did we think of the Black Tiger coffee from Coffee People?

Jim Evans from CoffeeWhiz.com has sent along some pictures and info via the Single Serve Coffee Forums regarding the new Keurig B140 Commercial single serve brewer. The Keurig B140 isn't for the masses but it is for coffee shops, work places, and other areas where you need coffee diversity and you want stability. The new Keurig B140 commercial brewer features a knob for dialing up or down your coffee size, a descaler, and is a pour over model.
Later this year Keurig will be releasing a plumbed version to eliminate the need to fill the machine all the time. The brewer should be available to commercial establishments for a price of $275. We'll keep you posted on this brewer and see if they release it for the consumer market or if you can somehow get one regardless of being a commercial establishment.
We would imagine this will make the B100 a thing of the past. We were never a big fan of the B100 and always believed the Keurig B40, B50, and B60 were big improvements over the older Keurig Commercial brewer.

We're pretty excited to hear Keurig Inc. has tapped advertising agency Brand Content to handle its creative advertising account. We love the ads they did for Monster.com and we think it's about time one of our favorite single serve coffee makers got some air time.
"Brand Content's strong portfolio of work and the conceptual thinking behind their ideas for our product really impressed us and made the decision to choose the agency as our marketing partner an easy one," said John Whoriskey, vice president and general manager of the Keurig at Home division, in a statement. "They understood the market and delivered the work that we believe will make a big difference for us and our retail partners."

The Keurig My K-Cup reuseable coffee filter is now available at Amazon.com for $15. We recently reviewed this little wonder and found it to be quite good. Plus if you need to convince someone in your household to finally bite the bullet and get a single serve coffee machine, then telling them they can use any coffee they want will help them get over their outdated drip coffee maker.
The Keurig My K-Cup reuseable coffee filter will work in the Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B-60 Special Edition, and Keurig B70 brewers.

We've been drinking the Heifer Hope Blend K-Cups from Green Mountain Coffee over the past two weeks and think these new k-cups are delicious, complex, and have a very long lasting finish. These new K-Cups will work in your in your Keurig B40, B50, and B60 brewers.
