First, Keurig took over America’s kitchens with its single-serve coffee brewer.
Coke’s joint venture with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters will create a design similar to the popular Keurig machines, and keep the Keurig name. Coca-Cola said it will pay $1.25 billion for 10 percent of the coffee roasting company.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, the Coke-Keurig machine -- called Keurig Cold -- will work with pods, similar to the method of Keurig coffee machines. The Coke pods will contain two chambers - one with Coca-Cola syrup, while the second chamber would contain a type of carbonation capsule that will be released when the drinks are made. The new Keurig soft drink machine will also offer pods for non-carbonated cold drinks including tea, juices and sports drinks.
The machine differs in design from SodaStream's home carbonated drink machine, which has been taking on Coke and Pepsi products for seven years.
The Journal report says the Keuring Cold machines are expected to sell for $100 to $200.
