Rogers Files Lawsuit Against Keurig

Rogers Family Co. Files Lawsuit Against Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. For Alleged Anti-Competitive Single Serve Coffee Market Conduct That Rogers Believes Has Harmed Consumers.

Rogers’ lawsuit – to protect consumers and end Keurig’s attempt to create a monopoly by restraining trade – follows a second court ruling that affirms Rogers’ OneCup™ single serve coffee product is unique and does not infringe any Keurig patents

When asked why, Jon Rogers said;

“We filed this lawsuit to end Keurig’s anti-competitive practices which deny consumers access to our and other competitors’ products,” said Rogers Family Company President Jon B. Rogers. “Our goal is to ensure that consumers in the single-serve coffee market have access to a free and open marketplace, in which they are provided the opportunity to select a wide range of products based upon whatever factors are most important to them such as price, quality, and commitment to social and environmental responsibility.  No single company should be permitted to control consumer choice or prices through illegal, anti-competitive conduct.”

    We just purchased a 2.0 Keurig brewer. Had I known you could only use certain k-cups, to make it work, I would not have purchase it. Its as if I bought a new pick up, paid for it, got it home, and found out it only will work with Goodyear tires. What a scam.

    • Chris Swift says:

      Currently our OneCups are not on the list of “approved K-cups” and therefore the brewer will not recognize them. However there are ways to use non-approved k-cup type pods in the new Keurig 2.0 brewers. Check out our 2.0 FAQ page here http://www.gourmet-coffee.com/k2-faq.html for details on this.

      Also rest assured we are working a more permanent solution and are very close to releasing the details. Stay tuned.

    I shelved the 2.0 the fog cutter cups in my opinion has the best flavor of any brand on the market. Im not surprised that kerig screwed the consumers. They have no concept of fair trade biodegradable. And I’m amazed that the least expensive kcup on the market has the best taste.
