All that being said, Keurig 2.0 will end up being to single serve coffee what Web 2.0 was to the Internet - a chance to clean things up, tighten up the platform and allow everyone to catch their breath while we prepare for what's next.
The most exciting thing that came out of the little bit that we learned of Keurig 2.0 is that it will be compatible with both K-Cup Packs and Vue Packs. So, in our opinion, Vue Packs will be slowly phased out of the marketplace in favor of the next-generation K-Cup Packs, with (SURPRISE) Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology - but if you read the ShoffeeBlog, you already knew this was coming because we told you a week ago.
During his intro of Keurig 2.0, Kelley said that customers want to select a beverage, put it in the machine, and press one button - RFID Technology allows this to become reality.
While Keurig 2.0 is exciting, it is only one part of the roadmap laid out today, here are a few highlights from Kelley's presentation on Keurig 2.0:
As a Keurig partner, we will hopefully have some hands-on experience with the Keurig 2.0, hot beverage system. We will be sure to post details about it as soon as it happens.
Keurig 2.0 should make its way to retail by this time next year.
