Keurig 2.0 K500 Review and News - Pictures and Video

Keurig 550 20 brewer

CNET has a feature on Keurig 2.0 and the K500 model brewer. The full photo slideshow is at: The K500 is Keurig 2.0's flagship brewer and you can see their video review here. The K500 AKA the Keurig 2.0 550 model left them feeling bitter. What made them feel bitter? For them the only reason to buy the Keurig 2.0 550 brewer is to get the ability to brew a carafe of coffee, and since the DRM prevents you from using unlicensed K-Cups the value is just not their for this new brewer. 

For us the ability to brew with the carafe is interesting, and being able to use the recyclable VUE format along with K-Cups is a plus. We'll have to see whether it leaves a bitter taste for us. We're hoping the claims of it also being a better K-Cup brewer hold true, and that brewing K-Cups in Keurig 2.0 makes better coffee, tea, and other drinks.

Sobieski Express Coffee Day Cocktail

Coffee day cocktail 2014

International Coffee Day is coming. Every year we try and prep two or three things we might have and do that are coffee related and somewhat different. This year we’re thinking of making some coffee cocktails, and the folks at Sobieski Vodka have sent in this recipe for the Sobieski Express coffee cocktail, and it does look yummy.

  • 2 oz. Sobieski Espresso Vodka 
  • 1 oz.  Kerrygold Irish Cream 
  • 1 oz.  Chocolate liqueur

Add all liquid ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass, or glass of your choice.

What are you cooking up for Coffee Day this September 29th?

Keurig 2.0 Questions and Answers from Keurig Green Mountain

Sayhellokeurig202

We recently visited the Burlington, MA Keurig retail store, and since they had a ton of Keurig 2.0 ads in the store we had many questions. Keurig Green Mountain has provided us answers to all of our questions, and with the release of Keurig 2.0 just weeks away we thought we'd share some of this information to get you ready and help you pick our your Keurig 2.0 brewer. 

Does Keurig Green Mountain plan to release the 2.0 brewers in Canada or will the company make the 2.0 a USA-only item like the Vue brewers?

Yes. When the Keurig 2.0 system launches this fall, it will be offered in both the U.S. and Canada.

Keurig Green Mountain Announces 9% Price Increase in K-Cups and Coffees

K cup price increases

Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. announced today a price increase of up to 9% on all portion packs sold by Keurig for use in its Keurig brewing systems and on all its traditional bagged, fractional packs, and bulk coffee products. This price increase will be effective beginning November 3, 2014.

Coffee prices have been on the rise over the past year, and this price increase reflects a sustained increase in the price of green coffee and cocoa, along with increases in packaging materials, energy, and transportation costs. Over the past year, green coffee prices, alone, have increased approximately fifty-five percent.

From Keurig Green Mountain:

"We have been closely monitoring increasing costs, including the cost of green coffee," said John Whoriskey, President of U.S. Sales and Marketing at Keurig. "Many of our competitors already have implemented price increases in light of the reality of sustained input cost increases. After careful review, we determined that it is necessary for us to adopt a small price increase in light of these higher costs. We understand that consumers have many beverage options, and we will continue to innovate and price competitively to win consumers' business."

Will this price increase effect your buying of single serve coffee K-Cups and other coffees from Green Mountain? Does this also mean all of it’s partners and Keurig brewed K-Cups are on the rise as well? We’ll just have to see on November 3rd.
