Free "freedom clip" turns off K-Cup DRM


Rogers Family Company Coffee and Tea is offering a free "Freedom Clip" that disables DRM in your new-model K-Cup machine, letting you use it with anyone's coffee pods.

The company says, "While other companies are quickly working to adopt this special ink to their cups we at Rogers Family Company believe that your right to choose any option is imperative."

In August of 2014 Keurig Green Mountain® replaced the standard Keurig K-Cup brewers with a new version 2.0. This new version is very similar to previous models except for ONE thing... it includes a new lockout technology that only allows “Authorized K-Cups” to work.

It does this by visually identifying a special ink on the lidding. Any cup without this “special” ink is rejected by the machine thus ensuring Keurig’s marketplace dominance. While other companies are quickly working to adopt this special ink to their cups we at Rogers Family Company believe that your right to choose any option is imperative.

That’s why we have developed this easily installed “Freedom Clip” for Keurig 2.0 brewers. Just place the clip in your new brewer and it will see all k-cup type pods as “Authorized K-Cups” . This clip is our gift to you. Now go forth and brew with freedom.
