New Keurig Elite B40 & Special Edition B60 Arrive for Review

Img 1363Thanks to the folks at Green Mountain, we've received the new Keurig Elite B40 and Special Edition B60 to review. We'll be benchmarking all three Keurigs: B40, B50, and B60 over the next few weeks. We're very keen to see if there's any difference in coffees brewed by all three.

The Special Edition B60 features a 6oz, 8oz, and 10oz setting for different cup sizes. It is features a programmable clock, blue back lighting and has the ability to adjust the temperature down 5 degrees. (Thanks to Scott G for this info). The Keurig Special Edition B60 is priced at $199.95.

Single Serve Coffee Visits Green Mountain Coffee Roasters

K-Cup CoffeeWe visited Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in Waterbury, VT in early August. The drive up from Boston is nothing short of breathtaking as Green Mountain Coffee Roasters does is in fact exist in the "Green Mountains".

Green Mountain Coffee Visit - 69As we got closer to Waterbury, we pulled off the highway to stretch our legs, and in the rest area was a coffee center sponsored by Green Mountain Coffee. We knew we were close. After another 30 minutes or so, we pulled off the highway and into Waterbury, VT itself. Waterbury is a smallish town with lots of charm. There is a main street with several restaurants, small shops, and there's even a Green Mountain Coffee Roasters store (which we visited later in the day).

We proceeded up to the Green Mountain headquarters to meet Ken Crites, Joe Anderson, and Gaelan Brown. Our day was to be quite the visit. We started in their K-Cup production facility, got a full tour of their coffee roasting area, moved on to coffee pod making, and then finished the morning with a cupping and tour of their "coffee lab".

Review: Green Mountain's Fair Trade Rain Forest Nut K-Cups for Keurig

Library - 7412 Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsWe decided to kick off the after Labor Day review season with a K-Cup we've been enjoying and it's flavored! Green Mountain's Rain Forest Nut is quite good. We have been drinking it in the 8 oz size when using the Ultra B50 Keurig single serve coffee brewer with a little cream and sugar.

Green Mountain's Rain Forest Nut has a rich flavor - almost a strong vanilla like note, and of tastes of caramel as well. By itself and without the cream, you get a hint of the flavor, but by adding cream and sugar the Rain Forest Nut flavors really come out.

Preview: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Visit

Green Mountain Coffee Visit - 28 On this past Friday, we visited Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in Waterbury, VT. We aren't going to report all of our findings just yet, but we can tell you there are more K-Cup flavors coming like Fair Trade Wild Mountain Blueberry (Blueberry was a seasonal, but now will be permanent addition), a new French Vanilla, and others. The new flavors will be available September 19th.

Also, the Keurig B40 will be available in September at Green Mountain Coffee's web site, and that's just in time for you to pick one up for the holidays or back to school. Best of all, it should be priced at under $100.

On the visit front, I did get to participate in a cupping with two of Green Mountain Coffee Roaster's cuppers. It was a daunting amount of sniffing, coffee crust breaking, and slurping. We also have pictures of many of the machines that make those famous K-Cups.

Stay tuned for the article on the entire visit!

Review: Green Mountain's Extra Bold Sumatran Reserve K-Cups for Keurig

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsLibrary - 6524Jim Evans at Coffeewhiz.com sent us the new Green Mountain's Extra Bold Sumatran Reserve K-Cups for Keurig to review. We've enjoyed the K-Cup coffee tremendously since the introduction of the Keurig B50.

What's so special about these new K-Cups? Well more coffee. The new K-Cups contain up to 30% more coffee per K-Cup. Many people have complained about the "dark" blends of the K-Cups not being strong enough - well the new K-Cups solve this problem.
