Yesterday afternoon I decided that I would like a cup of Chai Latte. I have a Keurig coffee maker and I have creamy Chai Latte K-cups. Yum! That chai would hit the spot. I put the package in the machine and received the following message:
What?! You are kidding me. I checked the K-cup, it said, "Keurig" on it. I tried again and received the same message. So… since the company provided a number, I called, and talked with the official "Oops" folks at Keurig. (I'm not kidding! When you call the number you get a recording that says, "Thank you for calling the Keurig Oops line….")
It seems that Keurig has ramped things up a bit. They have made their new machines smart enough to 'read' whether the user has an official "Keurig" K-cup, or some other brand. The packaging of their K-cups has been changed. New products have a white or light purple ring around the lid. If the K-cup does not have the ring, the coffee maker won't make the coffee. It's as simple as that!
Or is it?
Don't tell Dreaming she can't have her Chai and slurp it, too!!!
There's more than one way to skin a cat!!
I do need to say that Keurig has been wonderful to me over the years. We bought our first machine in 2010. It is still making wonderful coffee. However, it is on the motor home, and so is Mr. Dreamy…. in Alabama. So, if I wanted coffee, and to eliminate the need of lugging the Keurig back and forth (always the last thing on the coach and the first thing back in the house) we decided to get another. When I called the "Oops" line, I was offered a coupon that I could use when I made my first order of products online.
