K-Cup Hot Cocoa

The Sweetest Day of the Year

 

It's that sweet, sweet time of year again! Roses, over-sized stuffed bears holding single roses, and conversation hearts placed into neat little packaging, all ready to be delivered today, because it's VALENTINE'S DAY! So grab your loved ones and celebrate with them, because today is the day of LOVE. 

We are obsessing over this Valentine's Day candy box filled with some of our favorite K-Cup packs! 

Why not save all those calories for a caramel filled chocolate truffle and brew a cup of Donut House Collection® Chocolate Glazed Donut K-Cup® pack instead? Give your honey some chocolate, for goodness sake! 

 

Speaking of caramel, Café Escapes® Café Caramel K-Cup® Pack leaves us drooling, after we get one smell of that buttery, silky, smooth fragrance of pure indulgence. 

 

For those of us that need some chai time, look no further than a Café Escapes® Chai Latte K-Cup® Pack, The perfect marriage of black tea and exotic spices is right inside a cup of this latte. You'll be so relaxed, you'll be ready for a day with the spa, in no time! 

 

We love spoiling our kids on Valentine's Day, too! Share a cup of Swiss Miss® Hot Cocoa with your youngsters as a great after school treat. 

 

How would you pack your candy box full of K-Cup® Packs? 

 

Whatever goodies you may include in your box, we hope your day is filled with love, laughter, and a few chocolates too. 

 

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Maximum Brewing Action Satisfaction

 

 

So, maybe you got a new Keurig® brewer over the holidays. Or maybe you’ve had a brewer for years. Either way, there’s a lot more than just a simple cup of coffee that you can get out of this terrific little machine. Here’s some inspiration from GreenMountainCoffee.com and Keurig.com to help you think outside the bean.

 

  1. Explore new varieties of coffee. Sure you have your go-to blend, and no one’s going to take that away from you. But did you know, there are over 150 different K-Cup® and about 50 Vue® pack varieties of coffee out there? From light, medium, and dark roast to extra bold, flavored, or special reserve – you might just discover a new favorite or two.
     
  2. Try other hot brews. Coffee’s not the only cup in town. The best-loved hot tea brands are also available for your Keurig® brewer, including Bigelow, Celestial Seasonings, Lipton, Tazo, Tetley, and Twinings. And on a chilly day, kids and grown-ups alike love a cup of hot apple cider or hot cocoa.
     
  3. Enjoy cold beverages with Brew Over Ice packs. With specially-crafted Brew Over Ice K-Cup® and Vue® packs, it’s a cinch to make a fresh and refreshing cup of iced coffee, iced tea, lemonade or other fruit brew. Just fill a cup with ice (do not use glass), pop in a pack, brew, stir and enjoy!
     
  4. Involve your brewer for cooking and baking. There are lots of great recipes that call for coffee, both sweet and savory dishes. Your Keurig® brewer makes it easy to brew a single cup, fast and without cleanup. This blog has a boatload of delicious recipes, so do a little perusing for some culinary ideas.
     
  5. Use My K-Cup® for whole bean and ground options. For some, there’s nothing like a cup of coffee from freshly ground beans. The My K-Cup® refill pack allows you to grind your own beans or to try varieties that are only available in bags.

 

But it’s not just what’s in the cup that matters. Here are a few more tips.

  1. A little maintenance goes a long way. Changing your water filter every 2 months and descaling your brewer every 3-6 months will not only help extend the life of your brewer, it’ll keep your beverages tasting great. Learn more.
  2. Keep your packs in order. There are a few great space-saving options for keeping your packs handy and organized, including carousels, dispensers, and under-brewer drawers. Check out your storage options for both K-Cup® and Vue® packs.
  3. Stock up for guests. When company comes, it’s a real treat to allow everyone to choose his or her own beverage, so keep a stash of options (see #s 1,2, and 3 above) and make it easy for guests to browse packs (see #7 above).
  4. Keep in touch. Sign up at GreenMountainCoffee.com and Keurig.com (bottom left) to receive emails with exclusive discounts and special offers, new product information, and more. We’re also on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.

 

Got an idea to make it an even 10? We’d love to hear from you!

What is your favorite Hot Cocoa?

Even though the cooler months are coming to an end, a nice mug of Hot Cocoa from our Keurig® brewer can be a warm welcome on a chilly morning or a ray of sunshine on a grey, uninviting day.

When our family comes home from a late afternoon walk and everyone’s hands and noses are a little cold, there isn’t a more comforting feeling than a warm drink in your hands.  Typically, I love sipping on Swiss Miss® Cocoa K-Cup® and Dad likes to sit back with a strong cup of coffee, but on weekend afternoons, the whole family gravitates towards hot cocoa. And every weekend we end up in the same debate: which is the best K-Cup® hot cocoa?

Swiss Miss K-Cup Hot CocoaWe keep a variety of Café Escapes® K-Cup® packs on hand - Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and even Café Mocha for when we need a little extra kick. Now that we’ve discovered the Swiss Miss® Cocoa K-Cup® pack, we keep those stocked up for when the nieces and nephews come over, too!

The kids love the Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa, which is rich and creamy, and Dad goes for the sophisticated flavor of the Cafe Escapes Dark Chocolate. I prefer the Milk Chocolate - classic, sweet, and really decadent!

No matter how long we discuss it, there’s really no way to settle this debate - each flavor has its own appeal. You just have to try them for yourself.

In our family, the best hot cocoa K-Cup® pack is topped with a healthy dollop of whipped cream. I sometimes add extra goodies, like marshmallows, sprinkles, a stick of cinnamon, or a little cocoa sprinkled lightly over everything. Yum!

What we're giving for Valentine's Day this year

Love ballads on the radio, heart shaped cookies at the bakery, and pink and red decorations everywhere. Yes, it’s that time of year again! Single or attached- it’s hard not to like the holiday of love. (Probably because of all the chocolate!) If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for your Valentine, or you just want to take advantage of all the delicious seasonal goodies, than look no further! Here are our top picks for chocolate day - whoops, we mean Valentine’s Day!

Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Coffee!

Green Mountain Coffee® Chocolate Raspberry Truffle There's something deeply satisfying about the pairing of deep, dark chocolate and raspberries. It’s even more satisfying when you pair it with a bunch of your close girlfriends and a romantic comedy!

Heritage Chocolate Shortbread
 

Heritage Chocolate Dipped Shortbread This sweet, flaky and over-the-top delight proves that you can never have enough of a good thing. Seriously. The 18-ct box may not be enough! But, if you find yourself searching for a richer chocolate experience, sip on Café Escapes® Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa while you’re snacking.

Golden French Toast Coffee

Green Mountain Coffee® Golden French Toast® Okay, so this isn’t exactly chocolate but it’s seriously delicious so it made it on the list. And because we left nothing out- cinnamon (check), maple aroma (check), buttery goodness (check) - it’s going to smell as incredible as it tastes! If you’re feeling creative, check out Bluebonnets & Brownies’ post for a mouth-watering Blondies recipe using Golden French Toast® K-Cup® packs!

Are you a K-Cup Mixologist?

You know we love to get creative with our coffee. In fact, you know that we know that you love to get creative with your coffee, too. Some days you just feel inspired to mix it up – maybe add a little cinnamon to your Nantucket Blend®, throw a dash of whipped cream in your French Vanilla, or maybe even scoop a little pistachio ice cream into your French Roast. And then there are days that you take a look at your Keurig® brewer and think, “Caramel Vanilla Cream would make a great mocha…” Fast as a flash you’ve brewed a Caramel Vanilla Cream and then a Café Escapes® Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa into your favorite mug – and with that you’ve just become a K-Cup® mixologist.

Are you a K-Cup® Mixologist?

Here are a few favorite combinations from our team to get your mind perking on the mixing possibilities:

Announcing the new Keurig® Vue™ Brewer

You may have heard, but today it was announced that the line of Keurig® Single Cup Brewers is expanding with the addition of the Keurig® Vue brewer, a premium new platform designed with the ability to brew stronger, brew bigger, and brew hotter.

 

The new Vue brewer, paired with new Vue packs*, comes with all the ease and convenience of the existing Keurig® K-Cup® system with added customizable features so you have control over the strength, size, and temperature of your coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and iced beverages, as well as new frothy café beverages.

 The new Keurig Vue Brewer

Pretty nice, right?

 

To say the least, I can't wait for the Keurig® Vue™ Brewer to be available for purchase in the coming weeks.  It has a lot of options that I’ve been dreaming about in a single cup coffee maker:

 

  • Stronger Coffee: The Vue brewer adjusts water pressure, timing, and airflow so I can have the stronger brew I love in the mornings – at any size.
  • Bigger Coffee:  I can now brew into my large, stainless steel travel mug with new Vue packs specially formulated to brew a bigger cup up to 18-oz.  I’m ready to fill my travel mug with a strong cup of my favorite Green Mountain Coffee® variety, Breakfast Blend.
  • Hotter Beverages: Now, we can choose a temperature range between 187 and 197 degrees Fahrenheit to really customize our cups.  My wife Natasha enjoys drinking Celestial Seasonings Green Tea and always likes the water to be extra hot to let the tea seep. It’s like the designers had her in mind when they created the new Keurig® Vue™ Brewer!
  • And much more:  A few Sundays back, I was enjoying some Dark Magic Extra Bold with Natasha with a plate full of crêpes (I like to think I am an expert at making crêpes).  We decided to add some homemade whipped cream to the coffee and crêpes – just to mix things up. Suddenly, Natasha looked at me and said, “Wouldn’t it be great if our Keurig® brewer could make a cappuccino?” Good news: The Vue™ brewer can!  With exclusive two-step Barista Prima® Café beverages, I can now enjoy a cappuccino on the weekend when I am eating my crêpes with the family.

 

The Keurig® K-Cup® Brewer and the Keurig® Vue™ Brewer complement each other so well!  Deliciously simple and brewing what I like, the way I like it – what a pair!

 

*Just a reminder: The Keurig® Vue™ Brewer is not compatible with K-Cup® packs; they use Vue™ packs.

Chocolate is always a hit, and several of our offerings will fit easily into her holiday stocking. Encourage her to take a moment for herself with a handcrafted mug, or give her a few extra minutes with the convenience of a Cuisinart® Keurig® Single Cup Coffee Maker. If she likes to entertain, make it easy with our Keurig® K-Cup Carousel or Hot Cocoa K-Cup® Pack Gift.

For the Office:

A gift from our office collection is a perfect way to say “thank you” to everyone who has shared in your business success throughout the year. Chocolate dipped shortbread and biscotti make coffee breaks even sweeter! Thermal mugs keep desk-top coffee warm all morning long. Of course, the best gifts are large enough to share with everyone in the office, so choose from our wide assortment of gift baskets with plenty to go around.

For Everyone:

They’ll never run out again! Treat your loved one to a coffee and beverage service with the gift of club membership. Send four or more boxes of K-Cup® packs and the shipping will be FREE.

With these ideas by your side, we hope your holiday shopping will be easy as pie!

#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.)

Café Express Members, Rejoice! Café Escapes Makes a Comeback for Club Orders!

Back in March, we broke the news to you Café Express members that all four of the items in our Café Escapes® K-Cup® collection could no longer be added to your recurring club orders, due to heavy demand that created serious out of stock issues for us.

UPDATE: Hot Cocoa is back!

3/4/2010 Update:  GMC Hot Cocoa and all the Cafe Escapes cocoa items are now available!  Please use the links below.  Thanks.

3/2/2010 Update:  Well, we've got some good news and some bad news.  The good news is that Green Mountain Coffee Hot Cocoa will be available very soon.  We expect to have this available Thursday evening, March 4th.  And we will have a steady supply so that you can feel good about adding this product to your recurring Cafe EXPRESS orders.

As for Cafe Escapes, we will have a limited quantity of all four items available for sale this Thursday evening, March 4th.  Due to the limited quantities, we can NOT let folks add these products to recurring Cafe EXPRESS club orders.  We believe we have only 3 weeks worth of product for all four Cafe Escapes products.  We are VERY sorry about this.  If you enjoy our Cafe Escapes products, please get them now!

2/4/2010 Update:  I am told by our Production folks that we can expect Hot Cocoa products to be available by March 1st.  Wahoo!  A big THANK YOU to all our Hot Cocoa k-cup loyalists who have waited so patiently for these products.

1/20/2010:  It pains me to type this, but I'm afraid all of our Hot Cocoa K-Cup products are out of stock.  Due to incredible demand, we're told we will not have any Hot Cocoa K-Cups to sell from our web site until mid-February (at best).

Let me assure everyone that we are NOT discontinuing these products.  We love these products - and clearly you do, too!

On a personal level, my two kids ask me everyday when I'll be able to bring home some new Hot Cocoa.  Hopefully, in a few weeks, I'll have good news for them and you!

These are the Hot Cocoa K-Cups that are out of stock:

Not Everyone in your Office Loves Coffee!
