How is Keurig pronounced?

Postby JimS » Tue May 27, 2008 9:45 am

The problem with reading all of your coffee research is that occasionally a word pops up you've never heard spoken. In my mind, I've been pronouncing it Ko-rig. My girlfriend's first inclination was to pronounce it Koy-rig.

In thinking about it, there are a lot of possibilities:
1. Ko-rig
2. Koy-rig
3. Care-ig
4. Kay-rig
Probably some others too.

I know there are some retailers and customers on here who have at the very least probably heard how they answer the phone!

Thanks!

I've always pronounced it Ker-ig, where the 'er' are like 'er' in 'certain.'

Another possibility I never considered!

I wonder what the story is with the name. Seems an unlikely one for a New England based company. Their website is devoid of any "about us" information at all and their Wikipedia page is similarly sparse. Green Mountain's Wikipedia page is a little more interesting as is their website.

Go to youtube and you can listen to and watch the official Keurig commercial. Sounds like cure-ig to me.

Ah, I thought it was something like that, like kyoo-rig, or koo-rig.
