Keurig Dr Pepper has expanded its connected brewer line with the introduction of K-Café Smart.
The new brewer connects to the Keurig mobile app for over 70 coffeehouse recipes. K-Café Smart also uses the brand’s BrewID technology, which can select the perfect settings for whatever K-Cup pod consumers choose to use.
The machine includes a milk frother that features three speeds, enabling users to make rich froth from a wide range of milk options, such as dairy or non-dairy, as well as the ability to make cold froth for brewing over ice café-style beverages. The K-Café Smart also uses Keurig’s MultiStream Technology, which the company says “uses five streams of water instead of one concentrated stream to thoroughly saturate the coffee grounds more evenly throughout the pod for full flavour and aroma in every cup”.
Mauricio Leyva, group president at Keurig Dr Pepper, said: “The K-Café Smart takes customisation to a new level. It goes well beyond black coffee, enabling café-style creations like London Fog Lattes and Cinnamon Macchiatos.”
He continued: “With the K-Café Smart, coffee lovers can craft the speciality drinks they crave and discover new favourite recipes simply by connecting to the Keurig app. With over 70 recipes to choose from, we know our consumers will be delighted to taste and trial all the new coffeehouse beverages they can make from the comfort of their home.”
The K-Café Smart is available exclusively at Keurig’s website for $249.99, with plans for expansion into retailers nationwide this autumn.
