New Startup Koffee Karousel Allows Individual K-Cup Purchases

Oct. 30, 2013

Connecticut businessman, Paul Striebel, created a mechanical K-Cup machine called The Karousel that allows consumers to purchase individual K-Cups in an office setting, according to Hartford Business. Striebel found that instead of installing a Keurig brewer that accepted coins, he could create a machine that would allow customers to buy individual K-Cups. Striebel founded Koffee Karousel, which produces The Karousel, a coin-operated machine that is 33 inches tall and holds 88 K-Cups. The idea behind the machine is to provide operators a cheaper option in supplying K-Cups. The Karousel sells for $449. Full article.
