Green Mountain Completes Keurig Deal

B0007Iqqv2.01.Lzzzzzzz

Looks like the Keurig acquisition by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters has finally closed. We're pretty excited to see the future of Keurig and Green Mountain together, and we're hoping they continue to offer coffee from lots of coffee roasters and not just Green Mountain.

Specialty coffee company Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. said Friday it completed its $104.3 million acquisition of Keurig Inc., which makes single-cup home coffee brewing systems.Green Mountain already owned 35 percent of Keurig, and said in May it would buy outstanding common shares for $99.5 million, as well as unvested options of Keurig workers for $4.8 million. Keurig will keep its headquarters in Wakefield, Mass. and operate as a subsidiary of Green Mountain.

Keurig B70 K-Cup Single Serve Brewer Color Picture

B70

B70 SmallerinterfaceJust sent in from another faithful reader, we've got the latest picture of the Keurig B70 brewer. You can see from the picture, the Keurig B70 is definitely more than a slight re-design. The interface looks to be more polished with some really slick buttons. We love the curving front with the accented water tank side. We also love the continued blue backlit buttons and side water tank.

Rumor has it that it will offer 4 brew sizes... 6, 8, 10 & 12, and have a larger reservoir of 60oz compaired with the current 48oz reservoir available now. From the picture (or it may be a 3D render), the water tank does look larger. If you click on the smaller thumbnail of the interface, it looks like there is a + and - to click on to cycle through the new brew sizes on the Keurig B70 K-Cup single serve coffee brewer. We also hope you can cycle through using the menu button to adjust the brew temp.

We'll keep you posted as we find out more on the new B70 Platinum at Home Brewer and what features it will really have. In the mean time you can read our reviews of the Keurig B50 and our combined review of the B40 and B60 Keurig K-Cup Brewers.

Update:The Keurig Platinum B70 Single Cup Brewer is now available. Check it out here...

First Keurig B70 K-Cup Single Serve Brewer Pictures!

keurig_b70_kcup_spyshot.jpg

We just received this picture of the new B70 Brewer and President of Keurig Nick Lazaris. We can't make that much out from the picture but the shape on the side of the new Keurig B70 brewer looks to be different and chrome from the picture. Rumor has it that it will offer 4 brew sizes... 6, 8, 10 & 12, and have a larger reservoir of 60oz compaired with the current 48oz reservoir available now.

Autumn Harvest Blend & Pumpkin Spice K-Cups for Keurig Coming This Fall at Green Mountain Coffee

ViewmediaSingle Cup Coffee Tea ThumbOkay - the summer has just begun and Green Mountain Coffee is already gearing up for fall? Autumn Harvest Blend and Pumpkin Spice are this season's Limited Edition, Fair Trade Certified offerings from the Vermont-based roaster. Both coffees will be available from August 21st through November 10th 2006 at participating Green Mountain Coffee retailers, in the Company's direct mail catalog, and through the Company's website.

Autumn Harvest Blend is a medium-roasted Central American coffee with just a touch of hearty, dark French roast. Pumpkin Spice is a light-roasted, flavored coffee with enticing aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg. Both are Fair Trade Certified, which guarantees small-scale farmers a fair price for their beans. Fair Trade allows farmers to invest in a higher quality of life for their families, and in the care of their coffee plants, which results in a higher quality cup of coffee.

Rumor Mill: New Keurig B70 Platinum At Home K-Cup Brewer Coming in September

Keurig B70 Kcup BrewerWe just overheard in the Single Serve Coffee Forums that Keurig is planning a new B70 Platinum At Home Brewer. Rumor has it that it will have a new shape, and offer 4 brew sizes... 6, 8, 10 & 12, and have a larger reservoir of 60oz compaired with the current 48oz reservoir available now.

We'll keep you posted as we find out more on the new B70 Platinum at Home Brewer and what features it will really have. We're really excited about the new shape and new size on the reservoir. Though we love the Romulan Warbird shape of the current Keurig B40, B50, and B60, something with a more slender footprint would be welcome. And a 60 oz reservoir would be nearly perfect, as we are tired of refilling our brewer nearly each day. Perhaps with 12 more ounces we would only refill our Keurig B60 every 1.25 days. :-)

In the mean time you can read our reviews of the Keurig B50 and our combined review of the B40 and B60 Keurig K-Cup Brewers.

Update:The Keurig Platinum B70 Single Cup Brewer is now available. Check it out here...

Review: Timothy's Coffee Sugar Bush Maple K-Cups for Keurig B40, B50, & B60 Brewers

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 2533It's spring and the sap is running and just in time for the limited edition Sugar Bush Maple K-Cups from Timothy's Coffee. These flavored K-Cups have an over the top maple flavor but different than some of the other maple infused flavored k-cups and coffee pods we've tasted.

Img 2535What's different? The Timothy's Sugar Bush Maple K-Cups are full on maple and not a mixture of cinnamon and maple flavors making them different from the French Toast blends. We also find the aroma produced is almost like maple infused bacon or the smell of maple syrup over really hot pancakes.

As we stated earlier these k-cups are for a limited time only - much like the limited time the sap runs in the Spring that makes maple syrup. Having grown up in Northern Maine, we've actually all made maple syrup by carrying buckets of sap to a large boiling cauldron and then watching the sap boil down into yummy maple syrup, so our standards are high when it comes to a maple syrup anything. We also think you might want to know how to make Maple Syrup yourself and How Stuff Works has a great article.

Review: Coffee People Black Tiger Extra Bold K-Cups for Keurig B40, B50, & B60 Single Serve Coffee Brewers

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 2471Full 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?

New Keurig B140 Commerical Single Serve Coffee Brewer

B140 Front Travel-1

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.
