Keurig, Evoca Team To Debut Away From Home Brewer

Keurig and commercial coffeemaker supplier Evoca have partnered to launch the Keurig K4000 Cafe System positioned for the away from home channel.

According to Keurig, the K4000 uses K-Cup pods and milk powder to brew lattes and cappuccinos. The unit will be manufactured by Evoca Group in its Gaggio Montano, Italy facility and distribution by Keurig throughout the United States and Canada.

“Our partnership with Evoca Group couples their extensive commercial café system manufacturing experience with our expertise in K-Cup pod brewing equipment, providing an innovative beverage solution for away from home consumers,” said Darcy Clarkson, svp/gm of appliances at Keurig.

“More than two-thirds of away from home beverage consumption occurs in the afternoon when people are looking for the more varied and indulgent pick-me-up beverage options,” said Michael Pengue, svp/gm of Keurig’s AFH division. “The K4000 Café System will allow us to uniquely address the needs of consumers in the workplace and other commercial settings, especially those who prefer more specialty and gourmet coffee beverage options over traditional hot coffee.”
