How to Get the Freedom Clip - Use Any K-Cup You Want In Your 2.0 Brewer

Freedom Clip

Recently we covered the announcement of the Freedom Clip - an attachment you use on your Keurig 2.0 brewer to get around the DRM allowing you to use any K-Cup you want in your Keurig 2.0 brewer. We now have links to where to sign up and get a freedom clip sent to you, along with an article from the maker of the Freedom Clip. We've also finally gotten a picture of the Freedom Clip (see above), and we should also be getting one to review soon.

Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend K-Cups Review

ReviewstarbucksthanksgivingblendkcupsIMGP6138

While our friends up North got a chance to try these Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend K-Cups since early October, we thought it would be fitting to test things out ourselves now that Thanksgiving is only a few days away this side of the border. It would seem that Starbucks has a blend for just about every major seasonal holiday on the calendar and you have to wonder just how different each blend is considering that Starbucks keep using the same source regions & varietals for most of their coffees. You can only mix the same varietals around for so long before they all start tasting the same, right? Being familiar with their Christmas Blend, Anniversary Blend, Tribute Blend and so on, we figured we’d give this Thanksgiving Blend a try rather than a pass and see if we can detect any of the tasting notes Starbucks have advertised on their packaging.

Keurig 2.0 DRM Freedom Clip - Use Any K-Cup You Want in Keurig 2.0

Keurig 2 FREEDOM Clip DRM

It was just a matter of time before the Keurig 2.0 DRM was broken, and it looks like in the coming weeks you'll be able to purchase Rogers Family Company OneCups / San Francisco Bay OneCups and each pack will come with a Keurig 2.0 DRM Freedom Clip which allows you to choose any K-Cup type portion pack you want in your Keurig 2.0 brewer.

As you know the new Keurig 2.0 uses an ink technology to optically read if there is an "authorized K-Cup" present before it will brew. Many "non-authorized" companies are working to add this "special ink" to the lids of their current product (as well as OneCups), but OneCup has developed a clip that easily fits into the optical hole in a Keurig 2.0 and shows this "special ink" to the brewer so that it will brew "non-authorized" k-cup type pods. This includes pre-2.0 k-cups, other "non-authorized" companies cups and of course OneCups.

Since the folks at OneCup think that freedom is essential, they have named this clip the "Freedom Clip". They'll be including this clip in every box of OneCups AND will be offering it for free on their website to everyone who wants one (no purchase necessary). 

We should have one of these Freedom Clip to review soon, and we'll let you know how much freedom it gives us on our K-Cup choice.

Ez-Cup 2.0 - Use Any Coffee You Want with Keurig 2.0 Brewers

Ecofill 2 0 Keurig K cup brewers

The Ez-cup for Keurig 2.0 allows you to use any coffee you want in Keurig 2.0 single serve coffee makers. It’s uses paper filters to put your choice of ground coffee in, and they are then compostable or you can throw them away with ease.

If you want a reusable coffee filter then we suggest the Eco-Fill 2.0 which also allows you to use any coffee you want in Keurig 2.0 brewers. The EZ-Cup 2.0 works with all Keurig 2.0 brewers including K350, K450, K550, and with all K-Cup Brewers. We’ve received both products to review and they work great in 1.0 and 2.0 Keurig K-Cup brewers. We’ll have a full review soon.

GanoD Coffee Tea BrewKups for K-Cup Brewers

 

Og dano k cups

We received a set of BrewKups from GanoD Coffee Tea, and found the Toasted Hazelnut BrewKups quite good. The GanoD Coffee Tea BrewKups offer a single-serve, efficient, convenient and quality cup of freshly brewed coffee in under a minute, and each coffee BrewKup contains Organic Ganoderma Lucidum Powder.

What is  Organic Ganoderma Lucidum Powder? It’s a powder made from the spores of mushrooms that has claims of major health benefits. Some of those include:

  • Liver Protection & Detoxification
  • Effect on Cardiovascular
  • Aging Prevention

So far we’re not feeling any younger, but we can safely say the BrewKup coffee produced was quite good. So far they have 3 different options:

  • Black Gold
  • Chocolate Almond
  • Toasted Hazelnut

Thanks again for GanoD Coffee Tea for sending them. The GanoD Coffee Tea BrewKups will work in Keurig K-Cup Brewers but not Keurig 2.0.

GMCR Wellness Collection Coffee K-Cups Review

Wellness kcups gmcr 2014

A few years ago, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) decided to release a new line-up of products which they dubbed their Wellness Collection. The collection was made up of coffees, teas and Brew Over Ice drinks which had vitamins added in. We already reviewed the 2 Vitamin Burst K-Cup flavors and unfortunately, the 2 Celestial Seasonings teas which were part of the collection have now been discontinued. The 2 coffees are still being sold and have even been made Keurig 2.0-compatible, but we never really got a chance to review them until now. As a result, today we're checking out GMCR's Focus Blend K-Cups and their Defend Blend K-Cups.
