Top Ten Office Gifts of the Season

TOP TEN OFFICE GIFTS

#10 Small Revelation Travel Mug $2.95

We here at Business Coffee Express are often asked, "What is the best way to take my Green Mountain Coffee wakeboarding?" The answer is this cute little 12-oz. Revelation Travel Mug with a spill-proof, screw-on lid. It features a beautiful scene of the Vermont Green Mountains, and is the perfect size to grab and go whether you are free soloing, sky surfing, or even wakeboarding.  At this price you should buy one for everyone in the office!

#9 Logo Backpacker Thermos $19.95

The sleek, slender shape looks like you after the holidays, thanks to all the wakeboarding you've been doing! This compact, no-leak Thermos®, made by Nissan™ is so stylish it might just put mugs and tumblers out of style. Features an easy-to-open, spring loaded lid. Completely leak proof perfect for backpacks and travel. Double Insulation means your coffee stays hot for hours.

#8 Stoneware Logo Mug $14.95

Perfect for the boss who needs to be reminded on a daily basis that every office deserves great coffee! Each is individually hand-thrown by American master potters. Slight color and size variations showcase the unique properties of each one-of-a-kind mug. Solid and sizable, each of these mugs can stand on its own, but two make a nice pair.

#7 Bodum Milk Frother $19.95

The next time someone in your office tells you not to get worked up into such a lather, say "Why Not?" and show them this! This easy-to-use, battery-powered frother is perfect for foamy milk for your coffee without the hassle of an espresso machine. You will probably decide to keep it for yourself so buy two.

#6 Lake Champlain Chocolates Organic Truffles $22.95

Lake Champlain truffles— on the list because it's made in VT of course, and because they are the best Truffles I've ever had. Sorry Belgium, but cheer up, GMCR will probably never make a $25 raspberry beer aged in oak. Lake Champlain Chocolates has reached new heights with this collection of 15 all-natural, preservative-free truffles. Includes Ethiopian Coffee, Honey Fig, Ginger Lemon, Aztec, Mango, and Vanilla.

#5 Better World Gift Bag $59.95

Isn't dreaming of a better world what the Holidays are all about? Our exquisite chocolates, cocoa, coffees and tea help actually make it happen— plus they taste amazing. Includes 7 fabulous products contributing to a better world and a reusable shopping tote.

#4 Organic Breakfast Crate $37.95

Why a Crate? Because "Crate" just sounds cool, and who wouldn’t rather have a "crate" of something they love rather than just a box? Besides, it doubles as an "In" box. Filled with Fair Trade Organic coffee and Cocoa and Organic pancake mix and maple syrup, all from Vermont.

#3 K-Cup Ultimate Gift Basket $44.95

C'mon, "Ultimate" is right there in the name, of course it has to be in the top 10! The perfect gift if their office already enjoys a Keurig® Brewer. If not, get them one of those too! Our K-Cup Gift Basket gives you great coffee right away, and wonderful sustenance for the rest of the day. Includes 24 Green Mountain Coffee Sampler K-Cups.

#2 The Ultimate Office Gift Basket $49.95

Is it possible for two Green Mountain Coffee gifts to be called "Ultimate" at the same time? Yes, it's a holiday miracle! Packed full of delicious treats, and there’s more than enough to share. Brew up a pot of Breakfast Blend or French Roast while everyone in the office digs in to sweet granola, delicate shortbread, maple candy, or chocolate indulgences. It’ll be the most memorable Holiday coffee break ever!

#1 Keurig Office Pro Coffee Brewer $129.95

Not only the greatest invention in the history of humankind, but perhaps the greatest gift since frankincense and myrrh. (Gold is still hard to beat.) Even small offices deserve great coffee and the B145 Office Pro delivers. Designed for offices with 15 or fewer people, its small footprint makes it a perfect fit for conference rooms, board rooms and reception areas. Guaranteed to ward off office revolts, palace coups, passive-aggressive behavior and Monday sick days. They should rename it "Ultimate."

The Sampling Train Stops at Tubbs Station

Like a cyclone of warmth and good cheer, the Green Mountain Coffee events staffers have been criss-crossing New England and other parts of the country, sharing delightful wares at a whole host of special events. During the last month we’re been found at many different events, but one of the most exciting ones was the Tubbs Snowshoes Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer series.


This year we provided coffee for 'Stompers' at fund raising events in Vernon, NJ, Stratton Mountain, VT, Salt Lake City, UT, Snoqualmie, WA, Mt. Hood, OR, and Frisco, CO. As an extra incentive, we also provided new Keurig Brewers to all individuals who raised $1,000 or more to support Tubbs' fund-raising efforts benefiting the Susan G. Komen foundation. Across the six events, over $220,000 was raised, and we’re proud to play a small part in that remarkable achievement.

If you’d like to help in the effort to fight breast cancer, please feel free to donate to Susan G. Komen for the Cure here.

No rest for the weary, though, as we're packing up the van and keeping the caffeine train rolling. I hope to see you next month at the Boston Marathon Finish Line Festival on 4/19, two separate Earth Day events in Boston on 4/22, and a multitude of other locations!  Just look for the coffee van.

Introducing…Travel Mug K-Cup® Portion Packs!

Your K-Cup® favorites are now ready for your morning commute! We’re launching three coffee varieties in a new Travel Mug K-Cup®, made just for coffee lovers who can never get too much of a good thing.

Travel Mug K-Cups® are specially designed portion packs that create perfectly-brewed coffee on the largest brew size setting of the Keurig® Single-Cup Brewer. New technology allows more coffee to be packed into each K-Cup, which means the coffee is as strong and rich when brewed at 10- or 12-ounces as a conventional K-Cup is when brewed at 6- or 8-ounces.

Travel Mug K-Cups are available online at www.GreenMountainCoffee.com in three varieties:


And they are $1 off per box until 6/17/2010 with the key code TRAVEL-MUGS.  (Cafe EXPRESS members will automatically save an additional $1 in addition to their $2.50 per box savings)

Can’t wait to fill your travel mug?  Neither can we!  That’s why today Wednesday, March 17 through Friday, March 19 we’re giving away a box of not one, not two, but all three varieties of Travel Mug K-Cups (plus two Green Mountain Coffee Travel Mugs) each day to one of our Twitter followers that has a travel mug ready to be filled.

Here’s how it works:


  • Follow @GreenMtnCoffee on Twitter.

  • Between 8 and 11am EST, @reply us with a picture of your empty travel mug and the hashtag #FillMyTravelMug.

    • Example Tweet - @GreenMtnCoffee #FillMyTravelMug http://yfrog.com/ev3f9j

      • And no, you can’t use my picture ;-)



    • The daily winner will be randomly drawn and announced on @GreenMtnCoffee and our Facebook page.

Where do you Keurig?

Yes, that’s right; I’m using “Keurig” as a verb. Definition: to brew an individual cup of coffee with a Keurig Brewer at-home or on-the-go.


More and more Keurig customers tell us they can’t live without their brewer. And when it comes time for vacation, they wouldn’t dream of leaving home without it. From camping trips to extended road trips, our customers are packing up their Keurig Brewers and bringing the convenience on-the-go. 


Where do you “Keurig”? Are you the Keurig owner who brings it to every hotel like a security blanket? Have you figured out a way to strap it to the back of you Harley or slip it into your carry-on suitcase? Send us your best stories and pictures of where you Keurig.
