Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) exec David Sachs says 2016 could see 35M single-serve brewers at home (the company has its Keurigs in 12M U.S. households today) as coffee hits another growth cycle. One potential way to triple sales is through the consumer trend of finding healthier foods and drinks. He thinks the company can promote the health benefits of coffee and create new K-cup blends infused with antioxidants.

  • It's about time that we get more specific information from the company. Let's see how this pans out, which I expect to be good, so hold on to your shares and fight the itch to short this stock. Don't fall into the trap of analysts, who are out to protect their customers, rather than benefit the market.

  • And I'm still waiting for some international expansion discussions. It's a big, coffee-drinking world out there.

  • There are other companies entering into the single serve world who will have machines that brew the K-cup...coming this year..along with many coffee company's who will make "portion packs" that brew in these non Keurig machines...so in other words, they won't own all of that business much longer...competitors are coming...and many are already here...so keep that in mind..

  • Competitors have been coming in the soda indusry and guess what....Coke and Pepsi still rule it with an ironfist. A-Treat, RC, who cares. People want the cream and not the stepchild.
