The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Official Store has CBTL K-Cup packs. Right now they are offering 4 different varieties of Keurig Brewed K-Cups, and they are compatible with Keurig K-Cup Brewing Systems only, thus working in all K-Cup Brewers.
The 4 Varieties include:
- Café '63 Roast K-Cup Packs
- Costa Rica K-Cup Packs
- Toasted Amaretto K-Cup Packs
- Viennese K-Cup Packs
The agreement between Keurig and CBTL was announced mid last year, but it’s taken quite awhile to get these K-Cups into stores and Keurig brewers. Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is still selling their CBTL line of espresso and single serve coffee brewers much like Starbucks is selling the Verismo alongside Starbucks K-Cups.
Have you tried The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf K-Cups? What do you think?

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc., and Luigi Lavazza SpA have announced that they have reached a multi-year agreement Lavazza coffee to K-Cup packs for the Keurig K-Cup brewing systems.
The companies plan to launch Lavazza coffees, Gran Aroma, Classico, Gran Selezione, Perfetto in K-Cup packs for Keurig brewers in the fall of 2014. The new Lavazza K-Cup packs will be marketed as premium products and available at Keurig.com and Lavazza.com as well as at participating specialty, grocery, and away-from-home retailers and operators, throughout the United States. Lavazza K-Cup packs will be available in Canada in 2015.
After a successful if not lackluster launch and reception of the Rivo Espresso brewing system, it appears Lavazza would like to get more of it’s name into the US market. If the K-Cups are popular perhaps this will bring more attention to the Rivo Espresso brewing system.

With the recent news that Cinnabon was the ONLY dining choice at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, we figured now was the time to write up a review for the recently introduced Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll K-Cups. We have no idea if any of the Olympic venues or the athlete's village had Keurig single serve brewers installed but we thought it would be interesting to see if our athletes were getting a decent quality coffee at the only dining facility which was open on-site. Will this coffee end up with the gold or go home with a bronze? Lets find out. Continue reading: "Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll K-Cups Review"

Nestle and Nespresso are stepping up in size from espresso to single serve coffee with the VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee Maker. Trying to win more customers in the US is Nespresso's aim, and the $299 machine will produce eight types of 8-ounce servings and four espresso blends. The VertuoLine will be sold in the U.S. and Canada at Nespresso boutiques, online and at retailers including Macy's Inc, Bloomingdale's and Williams-Sonoma Inc.
The new machine, which uses a different capsule, and won't be compatible with older Nespresso machines. We're not sure if the machine will be compatible with the existing set of Nespresso capsules.
Nespresso represents about 25 percent of Nestle's coffee sales and 4 percent of its 92.4 billion francs in total revenue. So why do this right now? Besides the single serve coffee market growing in size year over year, Nespresso has sought to expand Nespresso outside Europe, where it faces an ever-increasing number of copycat capsules from rivals like Mondelez International Inc. This is much the same competition that Green Mountain faces with the after market and unlicensed K-Cups.
Will you be getting a Vertuo Nespresso brewer? We're pretty interested given how much we like their espresso. No exact date on the debut, but we expect it to go head to head with Keurig 2.0 this Fall.
