Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. launched Tully’s Coffee Hawaiian Blend in K-Cup packs for the Keurig single-cup brewing system. Although popular with consumers, Tully’s Coffee Kona Blend had to be discontinued due to low crop yields, the company notes. Therefore, it wanted to create a coffee with an equally unique and smooth flavor, the company says. Tully’s Coffee Hawaiian Blend mixes Arabica beans, including Hawaiian coffee, resulting in a tropical flavor and floral aroma, it adds. A 24-count box of Tully’s Coffee Hawaiian Blend K-Cups currently is available online for $16.49. Boxes of 80-count K-Cup packs currently are available at select Costco stores; the new blend will be available in the continental United States in 2013.
