Skip to comments.Secret to Homemade Coke: Instant Cold, No Canisters
Posted on 02/07/2014 1:04:44 PM PST by kingattax
For a century, the executives of Coca-Cola Co. have done everything possible to put their famed cola "within arm's reach of desire," to the point that one chief executive frequently pondered an extra tap at the kitchen sinkwith Coke flowing from it.
The company's plan to team up with the maker of the Keurig single-serve coffee brewers to develop a do-it-yourself countertop Coke machine comes pretty close.
The new cold drink machine won't look anything like SodaStream, the leading home soda maker, says Coke's new partner, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. It will have a similar design to Green Mountain's boxy coffee maker, and keep the Keurig name.
"You put a pod in, push a button, and get a drink," Brian Kelley, chief executive of Green Mountain said in an interview Thursday, one day after Coke said it will pay $1.25 billion for a 10% stake in its new partner.

I’m not Colombian.
How about putting some cane sugar in it so that has some real taste?
Oops! Wrong ‘Coke’.......................
Oh, soda, nevermind...
“bump” to the top
The more complicated the system, the more expensive it is and the more likely to break. And I just don't believe that things go better with coke any more.
Quick someone post the Nuka Grenade recipe from fallout.
I am at work. :-\
LOL. I had that same thought.
I have to say this will be something else we won’t have at my house. We’re fat enough already thankyouverymuch.
Reminds me of when I was a kid in Indiana. The local resturant/pizza place had Coca-Cola syrup that they mixed with ‘fizz’ water (carbonated water) to make the Cokes they served. We had a Coca-Cola bottling plant in town that served the local area, until a tornado disassembled it one spring.
If it’s adjustable so the syrup content can be boosted to make the Coke taste like it did years ago in the little 8 oz. glass bottles (the kind that came out of old fashioned mechanical lever arm vending machines) they could have a winner. When Coke really was “The Real Thing” it was one delicious and addictive drink.
Years ago, I got carsick. Coke syrup calmed my gut. Think I got it from the pharmacy.
Will this type of soda dispenser be illegal in New York City? Pop in a couple of pods and you can easily crank out a half gallon of Coke. lol
The loving couple. In stark contrast to pictures of him with Moochelle.
i only drink soda made with real sugar.
Zero only seems happy with Reggie. I wish them the best of luck as Moosh sues for half of what zero’s scammed over the last ten years.
Now why was it I thought of you when I saw this thread title? We both need a new Hobby...
...I suggest Fallout 4 ;)
So what? How is it different from Soda Stream?
Whats-a-matta da Mooch? Rope break on her favorite tire swing?
“Fountain Coke” (Coca-Cola syrup + carbonated water) is what one gets at all kinds of places, including McDonald’s. It isn’t as highly carbonated as bottled Coke or Coke-in-a-can. I don’t want to have a fountain Coke dispenser at home.
How about a ‘fountain’ beer dispenser?
Coca cola syrup is very good for nausea, We used it years ago when sick to calm a stomach. Pharmacies used to have the syrup in prescription style bottles just for nausea.
I rarely drink soda anymore, but when I have an upset stomach, a coke is what I drink.
If you can't get the syrup, just use flat coke. That was Grandma's remedy.
That is so true. I have found over the years that nothing works quite as well.
When on a vacation in Leningrad (earlier and later, St. Petersburg) in 1991, I came ghastly ill after accidentally ingesting some tap water. I felt that just one Coke or Pepsi would give me relief, but, alas, none could be found in the neighborhood. I can remember just thinking about a cold cola drink. That's all I could think about.
***I came ghastly ill after accidentally ingesting some tap water.***
Years ago the US news media had a program on Leningrad water. It seems the commies installed the tap water intake downstream from the sewer outlets.
Maybe Fallout 4 will be multilayer and we can all play together some time :)
