In spite of its foreign sounding name, Keurig is as all-American as any company can be. The company was founded in Massachusetts by an innovative college student. The name Keurig is a Dutch word that can mean excellence, neat or exquisite. Famous for its Keurig K-Cup Brewing System, the company invented the one serving coffee containers called ‘pods’ and the only brewing system capable of using the pods. The K-Cup pods consist of a single serving of pressurized coffee grounds and a filtration system. Founded in 1992, Keurig marketed the original systems in 1998 to businesses. The first Keurig K-Cup Brewing Systems were large and designed to tap into an office water system.
The overwhelming success of the large systems spawned a demand for a smaller home version. In 2004, systems for home use were introduced, and the company was purchased by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in 2006. A specialty coffee company located in Waterbury, Vermont, Green Mountain has officially changed its name to Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. Keurig products now make up the bulk of its business.
Because the original founders of Keurig invented and patented the K-Cup pod and its unique brewing system, and because the system is relatively new, there aren’t many competitors. Rogers Family Coffee makes and sells a form of coffee pod. Coffee giant Starbucks has come out with the similar Verismo single serve brewer, since the patent on the brewer ran out in 2012. Keurig remains the industry leader because of its continuing dedication to innovative design, research and creative marketing.
Hot coffee and tea aren’t the only beverage products that you can purchase from Keurig. It’s now possible to make cocoa, hot chocolate, hot apple cider and soup from your Keurig brewer. The Keurig Rivo Cappuccino & Latte System makes espresso and froths the milk or cream for your Cappuccino’s or Lattes. All the specialty pods needed to make these drinks are available on the Keurig.com website. The company also markets two systems that are specifically for producing cold drinks. The Brew Over Ice System and Keurig Kold are two systems currently available designed to brew cold beverages.
The Keurig Kold is a specialty brewer that makes individual servings of cold drinks including lemonade, tea, sodas, flavored waters, sports drinks and carbonated water. Kold enables you to make a brand name cola or carbonated drink, without the expense or danger of a pressurized CO2 cartridge. Keurig has collaborated with various soft drink companies in order to offer these brand name products to you. You can buy Coca Cola, Sprite, Dr. Pepper and Canada Dry soda pods to name a few, for use with the Kold. The Kold pods use what are called Karbonator beads to deliver a fresh-made drink that you brew in your home.
Each Kold pod contains two compartments. One compartment has the patented Karbonator beads, which hold the carbonation. The second compartment contains the flavored syrup. When the Kold is activated, the beads are released into a serving size portion of water. The water is chilled and then flows through the syrup into the single serve glass. The result is a cold soda or flavored water that is the freshest carbonated drink you can get, without going to a soda fountain.
Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. continues to be a pro-active and innovative company. Not to be limited by their unique one serving systems, Keurig is now producing a commercial brewer that is capable of brewing a carafe of coffee. They also offer a couple of carafes for home use, including a thermal model that can hold up to four cups of coffee and can be used with the Keurig 2 brewer. In response to many consumer requests, the company is determined to find a way to make all their drink pods recyclable. It has a stated goal of putting this into place by the year 2020. Overall, Keurig is a company that is committed to producing the best products, while striving to be responsible citizens.
