Keurig Dr Pepper has expanded its iced coffee portfolio with the launch of Keurig K-Iced of brewers featuring three coffee makers and five additional Iced K-Cup pod varieties.
The K-Iced brewers offer consumers the option of iced or hot coffee. The brewers feature a Brew Over Ice option that automatically adjusts the brew temperature, starting hotter to extract the full flavor of the ground coffee, then cooling down to minimize the melting of ice, according to the company.
The Keurig K-Iced family features the following brewers:
- K-Iced Single Serve Coffee Maker: Features 6-, 8- and 10-oz. hot and iced brew sizes, a 42-oz. removable reservoir and two fresh colorways. Available on Keurig.com, Amazon and other major retailers nationwide for a MAP of $99.
- K-Iced Essentials Single Serve Coffee Maker: Features 6-, 8- and 10-oz. hot and iced brew sizes, a 36-oz. removable reservoir and an iced tumbler package. Available exclusively at Walmart at an MSRP of $79.
- K-Iced Plus Single Serve Coffee Maker: Features 8-,10- and 12-oz. hot and iced brew sizes, a 46-oz. removable reservoir, three unique colorways and a drip tray to accommodate tumblers and travel mugs up to 7″ tall. Available exclusively at Target at an MSRP of $129.
“Understanding that Gen Z is leading the way in iced coffee consumption, with an astounding 73% of consumers between 18-24 drinking iced coffee weekly, we’re excited to further expand our brewer and coffee portfolio to meet the needs of our consumers,” said Becky Opdyke, senior vice president, coffee marketing at Keurig Dr Pepper. “With the new K-Iced line, consumers not only get that full flavored hot coffee they expect from Keurig but also a refreshing iced coffee at the touch of a button — all in one coffee maker. We know a staggering 80% of iced coffee drinks are consumed at home, which makes the new Iced system the perfect addition.”
Keurig has expanded its K-Cup offerings for the Iced brewers with new pods including The Original Donut Shop Iced Duos Cookies + Caramel, McCafé At Home Iced One Step Mocha Frappe, McCafé At Home Iced One Step Hazelnut Latte, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Iced Vanilla Caramel and Green Mountain Coffee Roaster Iced Hazelnut Cream. These K-Cup pods are designed to stand up to ice and are compatible with all Keurig brewer models.
