Single-cup coffee systems have tremendous advantages — they allow each user to brew a fresh cup of coffee, in under a minute, to their specific tastes (light roast, dark roast, flavored, or decaf), with no leftover waste or pot to clean. Of all of the single-cup systems available for the office, here are 6 reasons why Keurig is the most popular:
1 ) More Brands In our warehouse, we currently have in stock 121 different coffee, tea, and cocoa K-Cup options. K-Cups are available from a wide variety of brands, so there is something for every taste, and boredom is not an option! K-Cup brands we sell include: Caribou Coffee, Celestial Seasonings, Coffee People, Diedrich, Gloria Jean’s, Green Mountain, Newman’s Own, Revv, Timothy’s, Tully’s, Twinings, and Wolfgang Puck.
2 ) Interchangeability
All of the above-listed K-Cups are sold in boxes of the same size and shape. They all fit into the standard K-Cup rack — so it is easy to mix and match your offerings from week to week! Most K-Cups are sold 24 per box, except for a few specialty items and variety packs, which are sold 22 per box. 4 boxes make up a case.
3) Seasonal Coffees
Green Mountain divides the calendar year into 5 seasons — Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Holiday. In addition to their regular, extensive coffee lineup, Green Mountain offers limited edition coffees for each season. Pumpkin Spice, Spicy Eggnog, Golden French Toast, Wicked Winter Blend, Gingerbread, Island Coconut, and Autumn Harvest Blend are all examples of seasonal coffees.
4 ) Fair Trade and Organic Options
K-Cups offer more Fair Trade and Organic options than any other single-cup brew system. Green Mountain offers a variety of Fair Trade Certified K-Cups (including the seasonal blends), as well as several Fair Trade Organic K-Cups. Wolfgang Puck also sells a Fair Trade K-Cup, while Timothy’s and Caribou offer a selection of Rainforest Alliance certified coffees for the Keurig brewer.
5 ) Familiarity and Ease-Of-Use
Keurig is the most popular single-cup system in the United States. Within the past couple of years, Keurig’s smaller home brewers have dominated the market, so many people are already familiar with the single-cup concept before a machine is even installed in their office. There is no learning curve.
6 ) Attractive, Dependable Equipment
Keurig was founded in 1992, and millions of K-Cups are brewed each day. The equipment works reliably, is “idiot-proof” and stands up to repeat use. The commercial brewers have a sleek look that should fit in nicely with your office decor.
