Keurig = Excellence: The History of Keurig & the Inner Workings of K-Cup Technology

It’s not just CoffeeCow that believes Keurig is excellent…the actual name “Keurig” means excellence in Dutch!

Keurig began in the early 1990’s by two coffee-lovers with a vision, Peter Dragone and John Sylvan, and was then purchased by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in 2006. As they say, the rest is history! Keurig is now king of the single serve brewers, all thanks to its patented K-Cup brewing technology.

So, how does it all come together, making you a steaming hot cup of deliciousness every time?

The K-Cup itself is a plastic cup consisting of a filter and coffee grounds. Once the Keurig is warmed up and you pop a K-Cup into the machine, two holes are pierced simultaneously - one on top of the K-Cup with a spray nozzle and another on the bottom with a discharge nozzle. A measured quantity of water comes from the spray nozzle and is forced through the hole at the top. The water passes through the coffee grounds and filter then comes back through the bottom discharge nozzle where you have your favorite mug, eagerly waiting.
