K-Cups, the staple of all Keurig Brewing System users, will finally have their patent expire on Sept. 16, 2012. In a recent turn of events where Green Mountain was charging $8.99 – $10.00 for every box of K-Cups, they have recently dropped their prices to only $6.00.
That’s freaking excellent! I’m glad to see that Green Mountain is attempting to be proactive in the fact that people can probably sell K-Cups for as little as a few dollars, considering the amount of coffee actually in one of their boxes – and they need to start dropping their price now to stay relevant once the patent expires.
It was a good run – you overcharged me for coffee for years – now, it’s our time.
