    K-cups

    Have any of you coffee roasters figured out how to fill new k-cups with your own coffee in an inexpensive way?

    Nope....there was someone on the forum that said he could but he never got back in touch with me.

    K-cups have been around for a long time, home units around 2004, with up to 5 billion k-cups sold last year. It is huge competition to coffee sold in a bag. But is there something else coming? Keurig also sells brewers that use new Vue Packs instead of K-Cup Packs. The Vue system offers more control of the brew with a wider range of mug sizes.[18] Unlike K-Cups, Vue Packs can be emptied and recycled after use.

    We are talking about making our own commercial K-cup to sell our own coffee product.
    There was a one person who could manufacture the k-cup for the stores but I don't think there are any generic machine out there yet.
    Maybe I should look into it....lol

    There were several "new" booths at SCAA this year specializing in K-Cups. Lots of different options coming for 2013. Some have the packaging and you send out coffee and some want to do it all for you. Not a big fan of the K-cup, but you can't deny the market share.
