Timeline: Green Mountain Hopes to Quell Brew-Haha

AUSTIN, Texas — Green Mountain Coffee Roasters hopes to take back some of the single-serve coffee business that was lost to private-label marketers and other me-too makers of Keurig-compatible coffee pods when patents on the technology expired last year. The coffee maker will introduce Keurig 2.0 — a brewing system that will only work with official K-Cups and roasters who’ve licensed K-Cup technology.
