General Electric is bringing a refrigerator to market with a built-in Keurig K-Cup brewing system. The GE Café French door refrigerator takes advantage of having a hot water dispenser in the door to brew single cups of coffee (or tea).
“Over the last couple years, GE surveyed Café French door refrigerator consumers who have the hot water feature; they asked us, ‘When can we have a refrigerator that dispenses coffee or tea?’ said Dan Goldstein, refrigeration marketing manager for GE Appliances. “In fact, two-thirds said they’d be interested in a single-serve hot beverage dispenser,” he said. “This inspired GE and Keurig to pursue the development of the industry-first, built-in, single-serve brewing system,” said Goldstein.
The Café French door refrigerator is estimated to cost more than $3,000 when it becomes available in retail outlets the third quarter of 2015.
