Coffee is a highly recognised aphrodisiac: the caffeine in the coffee endorses hormones that create sexual drive. But, if you’re looking to get laid tonight, don’t choose Keurig Green Mountain coffee for your sweet nothings. Keurig Green Mountain Coffee is a waste of desire, the brew is weak and watery, there is no fine line between bitter or acidic and overly creamy, and the lasting residue is something you don’t want on your tongue.
Keurig is a nationally renowned company. It was founded by some guy somewhere, that nobody really cares about, and apparently he liked coffee. And apparently it wasn't a passion strong enough to make good coffee. As of today the company has sold out 80 various brands and demeaned their 575 beverage varieties. Some of the the brands include, Van Houtte, Donut House, Tierney’s Iced Tea Co., Green Mountain Coffee, and Starbucks. Truthfully, I’ve never even heard of half of these companies-- that must explain the situation. As for the Keurig brewing system, it is specialized in making tea, iced coffee, hot coffee, and cold brew coffee. Honestly, the only girl you're getting-- with your Keurig set-up-- is the the one working at the Flying J, next to a dirty truck stop, and is used to drinking mediocre coffee …show more content…
For example, the Colombian Blend, while the best of the three flavors, was still less than satisfying. It’s watered down, instant mocha flavor, captured nothing short of ordinary. For as much hype the Keurig brands bestows on it’s coffee, you think they would be able to invent a decent mild brew. It’s flavor was nonexistent and unappealing. For a plus, it had a crisp freshness to it, but if you looking for that, turn on the tap. Nobody wakes her girlfriend up with a cup of colored
Green Mountain Coffee Roaster’s Keurig Single Brew system is dominating the U.S. market with an overwhelming market share. Analysts expect sales of single-cup brewing systems to continue to grow in the U.S. and competitors are eyeing a piece of the pie. An analysis of Keurig’s current position, based on Michael E. Porters 5-Forces, highlights a number of key areas of opportunity and risk for the company. Handled correctly, the Keurig product line should continue its growth, however, a number of significant pitfalls threaten its dominance.
A recent primary research survey has found that 70% of occasional coffee drinkers view the Mr. Coffee brand as an inferior or budget coffee brewing device that does not make a superior cup of coffee (Appendix, Opinion survey). Brands such as Keurig, Cuisinart, and DeLonghi inspire more thoughts of quality coffee than Mr. Coffee. Other consumers are opting to spend several dollars per cup of coffee at coffee houses such as Starbucks, Caribou Coffee, Dunkin Donuts, and even McDonalds (Appendix, Opinion survey).

If you never had a Caramel Macchiato you are missing out. It is the combination of salty/sweet caramel with smooth milk and a warm/cold coffee finish. It’s basically heaven in a cup - no questions asked. Dunkin’ Donuts while doesn’t have the Caramel Macchiato however, they do have caramel flavored coffee. It’s nothing to compare to the Starbucks Macchiato but, it is a close second.
The alluring aroma of freshly brewed java is both tantalizing and calming to the senses, so much so, that most individuals are unable to fathom a morning or a day without a cup of fragrant, hot coffee in hand. Coffee is one of life’s little indulgences that have become a necessity for some, who find it increasing difficult to live without, as a result, Keurig created an innovative, and unique form of preparation. The Keurig machine makes it possible for a single serving of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or water without the need to clean the machine in between its use. It eliminates the “stale-tasting” waste that results from the remnants of old coffee, which no coffee drinker desires, and it eradicates the need to clean the pot or brew basket, all this in less than a minute!
During the entire time I was reading your response I had a smile on my face given that Folgers was hands down the best part of waking up for my grandparents. As a result, I have many fond memories of early morning conversations with my grandparents during various stages of our lives and Folgers coffee is part of every one of those memories. Therefore, despite the fact I rarely drink coffee, I have a strong attachment and affinity for the Folgers brand. Subsequently, when I’m shopping and my wife has coffee on the shopping list, Folgers K-Cup Gourmet Coffee always finds its way into my shopping cart, even if another brand is on sale. Nonetheless, thank you for response this week, it unexpectedly elicited several small cherished memories
The Keurig coffee brewer is the leader in the retail market for single serves coffee brewers but it can do better. Keurig has been slowly losing some of its share of the retail market in recent years. In 2011 Keurig controlled 54 percent of the market which is down from its 2010 number of 60 percent and 2009 number of 63 percent (Geller). Keurig needs to take its product and it has to offer and enter into new markets and segments. It mainly needs to focus on the younger and lower income level of its
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR) was founded in 1981 as a small café and combined with Keurig in 2006 (About GMCR, 2004-2009). GMCR produces specialty coffee and coffee makers; Keurig is the maker of a single cup coffee maker as well as specialty teas and coffees. Keurig was founded in 1998 on the concept that one should be able to make coffee one cup at a time rather than one pot at a time (Coffee.org, unknown). Today, GMCR has acquired and merged with several specialty coffee brewers and Keurig
The system allows consumers to buy a variety of coffee and make a cup of coffee that has the quality like the one you would buy in a gourmet coffee house for upwards of $3 to $5. Based on the surveys and focus groups that had been conducted people were looking for convenience, minimal clean-up, and great taste. Keurig made its decision to promote the system based on those factors and with units succeeding in local businesses now was the time to strike, while the “iron is hot”, a large percentage of survey takers said they would gladly buy the units that were proposed based on the information they were given.
Coffee drinkers all have one thing in common; they want their coffee made to their specification. Most soft drinks, milkshakes, and draft beer are ready made. Coffee has many flavors and that can be an operational nightmare. Starbucks has 10 different types of coffee beans, 12 blends of flavors and loads of special toppings.
Costa can only be as successful as the plan it implements. Saving the world from mediocre coffee and unsustainable practices are goals that must be attained.
Having more than two hundred seventy three company owned stores, Caribou Coffee is the second largest company- operated premium coffeehouse and retailer in the United States. Although it’s one of the largest coffeehouses it still has to compete with not only national coffeehouses like Starbucks but local ones as well.
Cameron’s Coffee was founded in 1978 by Jim Cameron and was later on purchased by Jim Kirkpatrick in 1999. The company specializes in ‘…premium flavored coffees, teas and powdered cocoa and cappuccino mixes (Petersen).’ Even though the coffee market is almost saturated, Cameron is looking to expand its operations not only in the United States, but in Europe and other continents. The company currently has a great advantage in this tight market, due to its dedication to quality. But in order to increase the probability for success, Cameron’s Coffee will need to expand its knowledge and involvement in technology and communication.
I would like to propose a marketing plan for opening a coffee shop in the city of Moscow. Over the past two or three years, a coffee shop in Russia managed to grow in a socio-cultural phenomenon: at once there was like a house of cards, the Soviet culture of consumption of coffee.
