Brioni's Coffee Pods

Postby TheCoffeeArtisan » Wed Dec 12, 2012 10:20 am

I saw an article on line that talked about Whole Foods in Boston starting to carry Brioni's "Green Cup" Coffee Pods and their pod adapter for the Keurig. While I'm always happy to see more pods coming to market, at $12.99 per box of 18 and the statement in the article that Brioni's has worked for two years developing this technology I had to roll my eyes a bit.

Here's a link to the story for those interested:

Correct me if I'm wrong, Chad, but isn't this the same (or a knock-off of) the Perfect Pod Holster? It sure looks like it from the video, including the spring to press the pod to the top of the holder. Even the video itself bears remarkable resemblance to the original video. Possibly Adrian is re-marketing the Holster? In any case, I agree they seem to have stretched the truth a tad.

That's ridiculous [and yet it's also good to see such a product available on the shelves at a major retail store, in a sense]. Pods have been around for at least 10 years, i.e. nothing new here in terms of technology. Right, the holster does seem derivative (though the "recyclable" bit may be new? Not sure...). The article reads like a press release. Usually boston.com's coverage is better.

Look, Brioni's also offers coffee with fiber added!
