Keurig has released two new ‘all-in-one’ coffee machines for the US market, which use the company’s K-Pod coffee pods to brew a range of coffee drinks such as cappuccinos, lattes and more.
The Keurig K-Café Single Serve Coffee, Latte, & Cappuccino Maker can make single-serve coffees, lattes and cappuccinos in both hot and iced formats, and is available exclusively from Amazon with a suggested retail price of $179.99.
Meanwhile, the Keurig K-Latte Single Serve Coffee & Latte Maker is a more compact coffee machine that is able to make single-serve coffees as well as lattes from K-Pods. This machine is available exclusively from Walmart stores in the US from 18 June, with a suggested retail price of $99.
Both machines feature a new integrated milk frother which froths fresh milk including soy and almond milks, as well as a SHOT feature which allows consumers to add a concentrated shot of coffee to their beverage.
To accompany the launch of the machines, the company has also added to its K-Pod range by introducing four new espresso K-Pods which are optimised for the SHOT setting.
The pods include two options from Green Mountain – Vista 44° N™ Espresso Roast and Vanilla Espresso – and two varieties from Caribou Coffee – Real Inspiration™ Blend Espresso Roast and Caramel Espresso Roast.
Scott Moffitt, chief brand and beverage officer at Keurig said: “Consumers have long had the desire to enjoy both regular coffee and coffeehouse style drinks at home, but many have been intimidated by the costly expense of buying a second coffeemaker, the multi-step preparation and/or the messy clean-up.
“That’s why we are so excited to offer coffee lovers these all-in-one solutions that make the option of brewing a single cup of regular coffee or high-quality speciality beverage simple, from the convenience of the kitchen counter.”
