Jarden Consumer Solutions (JCS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Jarden Corp., and Keurig, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR), announced an agreement to expand the line of Mr. Coffee® single-cup coffeemakers. This expanded offering will feature Keurig's® branded, patented single-cup brewing technology for use with the more than 200 varieties of gourmet coffees, teas and hot cocoa packaged in Keurig's® single-serve K-Cup® portion packs. The Mr. Coffee® single-cup coffeemakers will now include brewers that feature reservoirs to quickly brew multiple cups of coffee.

Alejandro Pena, senior vice president and general manager, Global Appliances, for JCS, said in a prepared statement, "We are very excited about the opportunity to broaden our relationship with Keurig. As the leader in at-home coffee brewing, the Mr. Coffee® brand is able to expand the Keurig® Single-Cup Brewing technology into additional brewers, making it available to more consumers. This agreement represents an additional important step in creating another solution for our many consumers while satisfying their needs and broadening the Mr. Coffee® portfolio of products."
