Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. has announced it is the exclusive manufacturer of Costco Kirkland Signature brand K-Cup packs for the Keurig single cup brewing system. GMCR has developed two blends exclusively for Costco with 100% Arabica coffees: Breakfast Blend, a smooth, balanced light roast; and Pacific Bold, a robust, extra bold dark roast. The varieties, packaged in 100-count boxes, will be available beginning in mid-November in Costco warehouses where K-Cup packs are currently sold, as well as on Costco.com.
New England Coffee has single serve coffee cups available now for your Keurig brewer.
I found this at my local Hannaford Food Store in Bangor Maine. It looks like they have Breakfast Blend, Donut Shop Blend, and French Roast. Interesting to note that they are the same price as all of the other K-Cups.
It's interesting to note how New England coffee discloses their single serve coffee cups:
Does New England Coffee have K-Cups? Unfortunately no, but New England Coffee offers Single Serve Cups. The New England Single Serve Cups work in brewers that accept K-CUP® portion packs.* *K-CUP® is a registered trademark of Keurig, Incorporated. New England Coffee Single Serve Cups are not affiliated with nor approved by Keurig, Incorporated.
So even more after market K-Cup compatible packs are now available. If you've tried these K-Cups please sound off in the comments and let us know your thoughts.
As Nespresso Club members are aware, each year around mid-November marks the release of 3 flavored espresso varieties known as the Nespresso Variations collection. These flavors are available for a limited time only and once Nespresso stops selling them, that's it... they're gone until further notice, sometimes never to be seen again.
This year, Nespresso decided that instead of creating 3 distinctly different flavors, they’d take a new approach and release 3 flavors which are all within the same flavor family. As a result, this year sees the release of 3 flavors which are based off of nuts… Hazelnut, Macadamia Nut and Coconut. The coffee base for each flavor is, as usual, their Livanto Grand Cru espresso which ranks in at a strength of 6 on their intensity scale.
It’s no secret that we are BIG fans of coconut coffee here at Single Serve Coffee and GMCR’s Seasonal Island Coconut K-Cups are our all-time #1 FAVORITE K-Cup on the market, so most staff were running around, hugging each other, yelling OMG! OMG! OMG! for about 5 solid minutes the moment we noticed the coconut flavor in the press release.
Over at Businessweek there's a great article on the future of coffe and it's a bit lousy. Another Reason to Hate Global Warming: Lousy Coffee has informed the entire staff here at Single Serve Coffee that by 2080 we'll need to switch to another hot beverage to enjoy in the morning. What's the deal?
A recently published scientific study concludes that as much as 99.7 percent of wild Arabica coffee—the bean that accounts for 70 percent of the global market—may fall victim to rising temperatures by 2080. Farmers will still be able to cultivate Arabica coffee—at least for a while—but the bean’s genetic pool will be severely reduced.
Well perhaps they can somehow keep up the genetic diversity and maybe over the next 60+ years make the coffee tolerate the rising temperatures. Who knows but I'd like to think our kids will make the coffee choice over taste and not because it's just lousy.
