Has the Variety Of Coffee for Keurig Machines Got Out Of Control?

Most people who own Keurig machines have their favorite type of coffee. I know that I certainly do. Mine is the robust flavor of Starbucks’ Pike Place Roast. However, I didn’t know just how many different varieties of coffee for Keurig machines are out there until recently. I happened to be browsing online and discovered that in the K-Cup variety alone, there are over 230 different kinds of K-Cups available. This left me wondering “Has the variety of coffee for Keurig machines got out of control?”

Honestly, I can understand that everyone has their own favorite brew. Again, I for one do. Seriously though, are over 200 varieties necessary or has this simply escalated to becoming an issue of everyone wanting to jump on the latest bandwagon? I took a look into many of the brands that are manufacturing some of the K-Cups, and found that some have never produced ground coffee before. Others are merely gourmet lines that have only served their brands within their own specific establishments in the past. One example of this is Wolfgang Puck brand coffee which I have only been able to find in either K-Cups or pods.

It’s very true that there is a lot of money to be made in the single serving coffee industry. So I can understand where many companies have just now begun to enter the market. With most companies charging a little over $10 for 12 individual 8 ounce K-Cups, that works out to being more than $50 a pound for coffee. That’s a very large profit mark when a traditional large can of Folgers contains a little over 2 pounds and sells for roughly the same price. On the other side though, this also means that gourmet coffee producers who have always been at the $50 per pound price tag can now reach an entirely new market of consumers.

The other thing is that this isn’t even touching on the other beverages available on Keurig machines. You also have various teas, cocoa, and flavored coffee as well as the original choices in coffee. So the question remains, “Has the variety of coffee for Keurig machines got out of control?” I guess the choice lies with individual consumers. What do you think? Would you prefer to have the large choices of your favorite morning brew available, or would you prefer to stick to the tried and true drink you’ve enjoyed for years?
