K-Cups Coming Soon

Hello,

Thanks for sharing your ideas with us regarding our offering Starbucks K-cups for the Keurig Single-Cup Brewing System.  I’m happy to share with you that recently Starbucks and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) announced a strategic relationship to offer Starbucks® and Tazo® K-Cup® portion packs to consumers. Starbucks will be the exclusive, licensed super-premium coffee brand produced by GMCR for the Keurig Single-Cup brewing system.  The company plans to make Starbucks K-Cup portion packs available through food, drug, mass, club, specialty and department store retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada beginning in the fall of 2011.  We also plan to expand distribution of Starbucks K-Cups and Keurig Single-Cup Brewers to our U.S. and Canada Starbucks stores in early 2012.

Our goal is to offer you, our customers and partners, the highest-quality coffee products and experiences in multiple formats, wherever and whenever you want it.

Keep the ideas coming!  We’re listening.

Is it possible to make something now, if just 1 kind, small portion, 10 pack box sold in Starbucks stores, to hold us over until Fall.

(this doesn't really affect me but...) am wondering how you decide the "one" name you credit this "idea" with. ??? As I recall, there were K-cup "ideas" and requests forever, all over the place.

@Betterbefore - the idea recognized in the blog is the parent idea of all the merged K-Cup ideas.  All the ideas get credit and all those users receive a light bulb for sharing their ideas.  The credit goes to everyone in the MSI community for sharing and voting on this idea.

@COFFEEISLIFE - There's always VIA to hold you over until Fall.  VIA Tribute Blend is now available too.

But now the T-discs are no longer :( I bought a Tassimo over a Keurig just for the Starbucks discs. I am so sad about this!

LeeZach
3/15/2011 10:58 AM

Will Starbucks make its Seattle's Best coffee available in K-Cups as well?  Seattle's Best was formerly available in T-Discs for the Tassimo machine, but they have been discontinued.

Betterbefore
3/15/2011 1:12 PM

@Cecile:  thanx so much for responding!  I love it when that happens;)

and, I agree, the Tribute VIA is good, too.  (altho I can never equate any VIA entirely with brewed coffee...but, a close second and certainly for special circumstances)

UrbanVoy
3/15/2011 2:53 PM

Could Starbucks make all its k-cups "travel size". It brews a richer, more intensely flavored cup.

The "travel size" k-cup has the same outside dimensions as a regular, but contains more coffee.

Since Starbucks k-cups will most likely sell at a premium, why not go all the way.

@UrbanVoy - thanks for sharing the idea.  I'll pass it along.

I have Via in the car, travel bag, and at home. I purchase 80 count boxes of X-Bold K-Cups for Home, usually for about $35.00 for an 80 count box, I purchase a box about every 4 weeks. If Via had been about 40 cents a packet, I would have stopped buying K-Cups and purchased only boxes of Via. Thanks for Via, in times when coffee can't be gotten, it does come in handy.

I decry the kcup phase. It only increases the amount of trash we throw away and seems juxtaposed to the encouragement of reusable drink cups.

COFFEEISLIFE
3/17/2011 7:36 PM

More trash will convience society to move forward on centralized recycling facilities around the world that recycles the majority of everything that goes into the can. No more landfills. Just recycling centers, one trash can, all goes to one place(s), all trash is recycled and reused for something.

so starbucks is coming out with k-cups that's great but what about the people that still use t-disks? is there any plan to partner with another company to keep that going? I understand the issue with kraft but what is going to have with t-disks?

LeeZach
3/22/2011 8:23 AM

Dizzygirl, I think we T-Disc (Tassimo machine) users will not be able to buy Starbucks coffee in T-Discs any longer, once the current supplies run out.  I actually preferred the Seattle's Best T-Discs, but they have already been discontinued.  (Starbucks owns Seattle's Best.)  As shown above, I asked on 3/15/11 whether Starbucks will make its Seattle's Best coffee available in K-Cups, but to date I have had no response.

3/24/2011 7:41 AM

Now that Starbucks k-cups are coming, I will definitely be buying k-cups because my husband uses a Keurig.  I currently use an espresso machine to make my latte each morning but my machine is about to give up the ghost - so to speak - and a latte k-cup would be a great replacement for my machine.  It wouldn't be as authentic as a genuine latte from the espresso machine but it seems like the t-disc latte option did pretty well for Tassimo/Starbucks users.  

Please offer the same drink options for the Keurig as you did for the Tassimo.  I need more than coffee - I need latte.  Please release a latte k-cup in your new k-cup product line in the fall.

Can we get a preview of what coffees/teas will be offered in the k-cups? It would be even better if we were allowed to vote on some of our favorites that we would like to have made into the convenient k-cups.

I for one would LOVE to see a green tea latte k-cup as I'm sure it's fairly easy to make into a k-cup and is my all time favorite tea drink ever!! :)

4/18/2011 9:09 PM

How about Starbucks sends a discount voucher to the bosch tassimo machine addicted users who only bought a crappy system so that we could drink Starbucks conveniently at home.  It's always a great experience going into the coffee isle and finding out that your morning jolt won't be there for you anymore. Hope you bought a half years supply to tide you over.  

Oh by the way spend 150-200 on this new machine which will likely be obsolete in another three years. They will be the only ones to carry the brand now.

Glad for keurig mahine owners but what about the people you already sold a promise to deliver coffee to?

dboykins
4/21/2011 1:36 PM

Yeah!!! I am very happy yo hear this news. I received my Keurig machine this last Christmas and uses it every single day of the week. (sometimes twice a day) I will be a huge supporter of Geeen Mountain's Starbucks coffee.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm getting one of the brewers that do the k-cups and I was hoping that I'd be able to stick with the best coffee on the planet.  Starbucks, of course! :D

SoCalTplant
5/13/2011 3:29 PM

Really not happy about the move to Keurig. The Keurig coffees I've had are not very good. I bought Tassimo BECAUSE of Starbucks. I understand that Keurig blew away Tassimo and gained a much larger market share of the market for coffee makers, and I can see why Starbucks is following that.

Beta & VHS again. Guess it's better to jump the Beta ship and get on the VHS bandwagon. It's all about the coffee- so some kind of Starbucks discount to buy a new Keurig for Tassimo users could really solidify the consumers who've invested in the Starbucks brand to get behind the Keurig.

Thank you for making the kcups. I bought the tassimo and now that will not work. So I went and bought the cusinart k brewing system. Can you please make those Kcups sooner thasn 2012. I did not realize it was going to be so long.

Please make the blend strong. I purchased the Verona green strip bold. I won't even use this pot until your coffee is in the K cups.

Thank you

Unbelievable. This announcement marks a sad day in our household. Our beloved Tassimo is essentially useless now. I don't know who to blame first: Tassimo/Kraft or Starbucks.

This will mark the end of the Tassimo system, essentially Starbucks coffee was the only reason we bought the damn thing.

If we buy a Kurig machine and within a year or two Starbucks bails on that brand, too, I'm going to launch my own class-action lawsuit.

Thanks for nothing, folks.

Lindax
5/28/2011 9:06 AM

I have a Tassimo. I use Starbucks T-Disc. Every week I empty and then recycle the plastic discs (I cannot do otherwise).  It strikes me that you could easily build a reusable T-Disc that I could put fresh Starbucks grind into. Perhaps you could have several T-Disc types that varied by barcode (eg, latte, coffee, expresso). The technology is already invented. You just need to manufacture a reuseable (dishwasher safe?) version. I'D BUY THAT. Heck I'd spend as much as ... oh ... $10-12 for a reusable T-Disc. Then I could not only help the environment but also use a greater variety of S'bux coffees, e.g., Christmas blend!!!!!!!

DO THIS!! I don't know whether to put this in social responsibility, technology, new products or all. ;-)

I rarely comment in arenas like this one, but I am passionate about my Starbucks as most of you are. I also LOVE my Keurig, the marriage of the two is a match made in heaven to me.  Thank you so much for partnering!

I have a request, if there could be a Half-Caf or Decaf Espresso, I would be beyond happy! I know there are lots of people out there like me for whom full caff just isn't an option.

Thanks for considering.  :)

Hi as I bought up all the available supplies to fit my TAssimo which are about finished I went out and bought the Breville Keruig system at a cost of $279. When brew testing the ideal coffee size is only 7 oz and to get the stronger brew you chose the 5 oz size versus the ideal size of 9 oz in the SB pods for theTassimo systems. Does that mean I will have to use 2 pods at double the cost to get the cup and flavour to match TAssimo. Question what pod size equivalent are you delivering for the K cup.?

Thanks!

I also bought my tassimo for that very reason, and I just got it in Feb, didnt even know they werent going to be making starbucks in tdiscs anymore. $200.00 down the drain. I dont see why starbucks cant make everyone happy and make for both coffee makers if they have their own rights to sell their coffee now. Starbucks in a kuering is not going to be as good as in the tassimo, nor can you make lattes & caps in the keurig. The keurig is a much weaker system, the coffee is no where near as strong.. yes I have had both and replaced the keurig with this, just for starbucks. The tassimo nicely foams milk for cap's. I personally am not buying another coffee maker again for starbucks. I am going back to my mr coffee and my yuban and will not set foot in another starbucks coffee shop until they make right for all the people who spent alot of money for their product.

Just bought a BREVILLE Keurig Single Serve Brewer.  Every K-cup they sent was terrible and weak even on the short cup brew.  I can only compare it to my Starbucks.  NEED STARBUCKS K-CUPS.  Right now I am grinding my Starbuck beans and putting in the included small filter/brewer.  What a difference.  

Seattlelite
6/24/2011 11:03 AM

I have to agree with KELLZBELLZ and several of the others above on this issue, Starbucks. I don't think you should just discontinue Tassimo and leave only those with a Keurig the opportunity to buy pods. I also just bought the Tassimo for $200 in late January simply because the Starbucks brand discs were available (and they weren't in Keurig otherwise I would have bought a Keurig). I was disappointed to find out only a few months later that you were discontinuing the discs for the Tassimo, but I'm not going to go out and buy another new $200 coffee maker just because you abandoned a set of customers- I'll switch to another company that isn't going to be like that and give my money to them. I have always supported Starbucks being a local company and all (I'm from Seattle), but there have been too many letdowns now at this point. I will move on the support another company now, sorry. I hope you start making the t-discs again in the future. If not, it's Starbucks loss not the rest of us who can take our money elsewhere (making i just a letdown not a loss).

7/3/2011 5:39 PM

I, like the others, am disappointed that you are not offering both T-disks and K cups. I am very loyal to Starbucks and shelled out a lot of money for a Tassimo I now can't use. You really should offer incentives to those of us who purchased the Tassimo because of your marketing on that one.

shifuimam
7/6/2011 7:27 AM

Take a minute before you complain about the move to Keurig from Tassimo. This was first a foremost a *business decision* made by Starbucks, since the Tassimo was not very successful compared to the K-Cup line. It's doubtful that Starbucks would be able to manufacture both K-Cups and T-Discs simultaneously - Keurig and Kraft both want exclusive rights to a brand like Starbucks. It's likely that Kraft wanted to maintain exclusivity and couldn't (or wouldn't) make a good business deal with Starbucks once they decided to start making K-Cups.

Additionally: "Expresso" isn't a word. "Espresso" is. The K-Cup brewers *cannot* make lattes and other fancy beverages that contain both coffee and milk. The Tassimo didn't make real lattes to begin with, but if you really want a quasi-latte from a single-serve machine, you can do what the Tassimo did - heat up some milk in the microwave and make a K-Cup with only six ounces of water. Or, just buy an automatic espresso machine for a couple grand.

larryjefferson
7/11/2011 10:23 AM

I think that the switch going to the kcup format is a much better option for starbucks. The connection with kraft just wasn't working as well as planned nor was their product making a big splash in the market. It is incredible how much the Keurig has done and will continue to do. There are so many places even on the internet that are selling these kcups for extremely cheap prices, like www.coffeeforless.com

YES!  This morning I brewed 4 individual "my k-cups" with ground Pike Place for my husband and myself.  I couldn't seem to get the grind right and was wondering if I should go back to drip coffee!  Then I searched online for "starbucks k cups" and was very pleased to find this blog!!!  THANK YOU!  I was hesitant to purchase a Keurig machine, but it is SO convenient (if you frequently oversleep in the morning like we do, if you just want one cup, if a guest wants a decaf cup, etc.).  My Grandma and friend both have them and sometimes washing the drip coffee pot and filter every day just gets old.  I can't wait!!!

7/25/2011 8:06 AM

I second the idea of "green tea latte" k cup. PLEASE offer this!!! I would drink them every day. I love the tazo green tea latte from starbucks. Even if it's just the green tea part without the "latte/milk" that would work too and just add our milk after it's brewed.

I really hope tazo will have plenty of tea varieties for k cups including iced varieties like your lemonade and passion iced tea!

I definitely agree we should have "espresso" k cups from starbucks as well. AND macchiatos!

Agree with Lindax--refillable t disks so Tassimo people can still enjoy Starbucks.  Won't be buying a Keurig--the coffee is just not as good--weak brew, water at a lower temp--Tassimo brewed strong and hot every time.

I'm disappointed with the Starbucks employees reading this blog. Anytime someone sings praises about the addition of K-Cups, they respond. They have yet to reply to a single Tassimo owner who is disappointed. Like the other Tassimo owners commenting, I bought my coffee maker specifically for the Starbucks. I couldn't be more upset about the discontinuation of T Discs.

Don't blame Starbucks or even Kraft for the switch from disks to k-cups. Blame Tassimo for even bringing that lame first t-disk brewer to market. They should never have marketed that thing until they figured out how to keep it from drooling water all over your counter-top. This single defect probably drove more people to Keurig than anything else. That, and needing to practically disassemble the thing to fit a travel mug under it. It's a testimonial to Starbucks that so many people kept using that machine or else bought the next, more expensive but non-leaking, iteration of the Tassimo, instead of moving to Keurig, just to keep their Starbucks.

Ok. Kraft owns Tassimo. Braun made the first machine for Kraft. Bosch makes the newer, better model. My mistake. Kraft deserved to lose Starbucks. They turned off too many customers with that first piece of junk. Keurig got it right the first time.

Well, I sold my Braun Tassimo on eBay for $130 bucks and used it towards a Breville Keurig. Until Starbucks comes out in k-cups, I'm using Newman's Own Extra Bold. Not Starbucks but not bad.

Like many of you I bought (actually got for Mother's Day) a Tassimo (who is, by the way, still advertising on their boxes "Featuring Starbucks..." on their boxes) for the sole purpose of drinking my Starbucks coffees. I haven't tried any of the other coffees that can be found. Locally the selections for it are crap (Maxwell House, blechhhh!) I think it sucks that now my Mother's day gift is useless as I'm almost out of Starbucks discs. I spent over $100 on Tdiscs once I found out that it was no longer being manufactured. It's really infuriating that now I'm faced with going back to a multi-cup coffee pot to enjoy my Starbucks or buy another single cup brewing system. Dissatisfied with the decision on Starbucks part to stop production in Tassimo products, yet more disappointed in Tassimo for misleading my family into believing I was receiving the perfect gift for a Starbucks lover!

Make them biodegradable:  It would be a leap forward for k cups and consistent with Starbucks' desired image to provide biodegradable Starbucks k cups.  I know I am not the first commenter to mention this idea, but wanted to support those who did.  I have used biodegradable Nespresso pods very happily in Europe so I know the technology is out there.

i, too, bought a tassimo based on being able to obtain starbucks t-discs.  i feel cheated.  i will buy a keurig....although i will continue to use my tassimo for latte and cap.  i have a gut feeling, though, that it wil be only a matter of time before keurig changes its technology to include using milk...just like tassimo.  can't wait that long, though.

when will the starbucks k-cups be available.

9/24/2011 3:33 AM

I'm like many of you; I started with the Braun and subsequently bought two top of the line Boschs. My favorite coffees and why I bought the Boschs was of course, SBuxs. I'm also disappointed I can no longer buy SBuxs in T-disc form, but this is the nature of technology. No different than the evolution of new models of cars, cell phones, and computer technology. There is also the matter of business, and I'm sure Sbux has their reasons for separating. That said, lucky Keurig owners!!!! All told this will be an exciting time for single serve technology to advance. I think we are going to see new brewers manufactured as time goes on that will be less proprietal like the Keurig model -- open to diverse coffee brands -- that will do an even better job at making espressos and regular drinks -- coffees and teas. Right now the Caffitaly Brewers are developed on an open platform, meaning any company can adapt this brewer and make their branded drinks in capsule form. The biggest pro -- caffitaly capsules will fit in any caffitaly brewer system. So if SBuxs were to adopt this brewer with a SBux logo, & produce SBux coffees in Caffitaly compatible capsules, you could use those capsules in a for example Peets Caffitaly brewer system and vice versa. The other pro is this brewer has a twin pressure system. The brewer has the ability to make espresso(s) using 15 bars of pressure, and can switch to 3.5 bars of pressures to make regular joes, teas, and other drinks. Member above is correct our Tassimos only brew at around 3.3 or lower actual bars of pressure; thus although the espressos can taste good, the espresso(s) are simulated. Those low bars of pressure for Tass(s) are not necessarily going to make a difference as opposed to Keurig. I'm looking forward to see what the future holds in the single serve market, and after owning Tassimo(s) and a couple of other single serve machines, I now know what to look for in a single serve brewer as new ones are manufactured.

Though I'm thrilled for those who own the Keurig coffee system, my husband and I bought a Tassimo by Bosch coffee maker for the sole purpose of making a quick cup of Starbucks when on-the-run.

We bought the machine less than a year ago and are disappointed that we are no longer able to purchase the T-discs.  We are wonderful supporters of Starbucks so would appreciate the company's consideration in providing a special offer to individuals like us who spent close to $200 for a quick-brew machine that we can no longer use (because we used it exclusively for Sbux).

I have the tassimo and keurig systems, and I mostly use the tassimo for espresso and the keurig for regular coffee.   I buy European espresso brands on the internet now, but  I really did like the starbucks espresso for tassimo, and would love to see the same product for the keurig.

starbucks: best coffee ever.

Keurig machine: way below average.Pump broke twice)

Tassimo machine: nothing better on the market (so far)

I have both machines.

Any chance of getting Starbucks in Tassimo discs?. I think

i figured out how to reload the discs with Starbucks coffee, however it is a pain. But if that is what it takes.....

Any plans to discontinue the Pike thing?

Thanks,.... keep the dark roasts comming.

luv u guys

What happened to the Tassimo Starbucks Cappuccino products?  I do not use a Kuerig system as I bought the Tassimo because of the Starbucks product for use on this machine.  

I understand that you did not renew your agreement with Tassimo, but help!!!  Don't send me to competition!

I Jumped for Joy when I found out that Starbucks was releasing their K-cup.

I purchased a Tassimo a year ago only because it had Starbucks T-discs, so I could have the Smell and Taste of Starbucks at home.

When I found out that Starbucks T-discs were no longer available when supplies ran out, I was upset to say the least. My machine seems useless. My husband told me the Keruig had a K-cup you could put your own grounds in, but when we purchased it and I asked my local Starbucks barista gals what grind to use, they were at a loss.

I've tried every sort of grind and it's not working. I was about to return this machine when I heard the good news. I'm tired of buying expensive machines.

I'm a Starbucks Die-Hard since 1984. I won't drink anything else.

A good idea. I still will use my Starbucks Espresso Machine daily, however the Keurig Machine is a "handy addition".  Don't forget to make ESPRESSO K cups!!!!

After reading all of these comments, and understanding that it is ultimately a business decision. That being so it is your choice to take your money elsewhere (I also am a tassimo owner wondering how the handling of prepacked t discs was an issue?) Starbucks is a huge group, support new options from other producers, no one wants a uncontested monopoly on any sector of business. Drink Starbucks when you want Starbucks, obviously use someone else for your tassimo...oh and shifuimam you're an assclown, hope I spelled that properly for a little troll like you.

This is a really nice upcoming feature for all of us who enjoy your coffee.  The only problem I see is it would be nice to order them online through Starbucks. Some people live in remote areas and don't have access to readily.

Something to think about.

I'm so psyched about the k-cups!!! I'm getting a Keurig for my birthday just because of the new Starbucks k-cups! Thank you!!!

Sort of surprised that the K-Cups will not be available until after Christmas!  My son is biting at the bit to get them and I would love to stuff his stocking with them.  Can you let us know if there is any chance of ordering them before the New Year and in time to get them for Christmas?

I bought a Keurig now that I can use Starbucks K-cups. Coffee is great!  When will Starbucks add decaf and esspresso k-cups?

Like "decode", I also bought a Keurig just for the Starbucks K-Cups. Very happy with the Pike choice...but please add at least one DECAF!! My wife's a huge Starbucks fan but can't have caffeine. The currently available decaf brands are not cutting it.
