Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer at Target and Other Retailers

Keurig 20 K200 Target

The Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer has been rolling out to store shelves over the past few weeks, and we got this picture at our local Target in Watertown, MA. The K200 features 9 brew sizes (including carafe sizes), and a large 40 oz. Water Reservoir. There’s even strength control, and a Black and White Touch Display. We also really love this brewer’s compact size. Given the price point of ~$120 (we’ve seen it as low as $109) we expect this to be a big seller for Green Mountain. We just wish they’d get rid of the DRM.

G-KUP Creates the 1st Compostable Coffee Pods

R GKUP large570

The title kind of says it all but in reality a Vancouver-based company has come up with 100 per cent compostable coffee pods. They’ve also patented the process. 

Why? K-Cups right now are not compostable and are piling up in land fills. A Mother Jones report said the number of K-Cups produced in in 2013 was enough to wrap around the planet 10.5 times. ERG. 

G-Kups are held together with a bamboo and sugar cane sleeve, with a biodegradable polymer lining that can withstand boiling water. The sleeve has always been the issue - not being able to hold up to the temperature of the water so the brewing process holds up.

G-Kups aren’t out on the market yet, but let’s hope they get to market soon.
