Over the past few weeks I have been paying close attention to the terms customers use when searching for products and information on our online store. The data gathered was insightful and I’ve been tweaking the results for many popular terms to better return more usable results.

We want to serve our customers better. If you’re a registered CoffeeKing.com customer, tell us which brew systems you purchase products for by updating your Account Information.
Why does this information help us better serve you? It prevents us from shipping you product that you can’t use. Occasionally we have a customer order pods when they wanted K-Cups. Or Lavazza Blue products when they have a Lavazza Point brewer. In instances such as these, we can contact you to verify you want what your ordered.

There has been a lot of complaints online regarding the fact that the Keurig 2.0 brewers do not accept non-Keurig, third party “K-Cups” or even older, official Keurig K-Cups. This post is my attempt to explain why Keurig made this decision without defending it.
The original Keurig K-Cup brewers did nothing more than puncture the top and bottom of the K-Cup Pack allowing the forced hot water to pass through. This allowed for third party companies to fairly easily replicate the K-Cup Pack, once the patent expired. Others designed their packs far enough away from the patent to allow them to work during the patent’s lifetime.
