Jan. 16, 2015 – The GE Café French door refrigerator incorporates the Keurig K-Cup brewing system to provide hot single-cup beverages from a refrigerator.

“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 a news release. “This inspired GE and Keurig to pursue the development of the industry-first, built-in, single-serve brewing system from a refrigerator.”

“As an innovator in the personal beverage system industry, Keurig is excited to partner with GE and to be the first to offer hot single-cup technology right from a refrigerator,” said Mark Wood, chief product officer for Keurig Hot Beverage Systems.

Additional features:

  • fresh, filtered water every time with no need to refill
  • a built-in system that frees up counter space
  • dishwasher-safe brewer
  • water filtration system, tested and verified by an independent third party to remove 98 per cent of five trace pharmaceuticals from water
  • GE-connected technology, allowing consumers to preset the brew time via their mobile device so the water in the reservoir is ready and waiting
  • water-dispensing flow rate and temperature designed to make the optimal cup of coffee, tea or other single-serve beverages
  • ENERGY STAR certification, meeting minimum efficiency standards for refrigerators and freezers and using as much energy as a cellphone does to charge overnight
  • opportunity to brew more than 400 varieties of Keurig K-Cup beverages from more than 60 major brands, including Folgers, Maxwell House, Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Eight O'Clock, Community Coffee, and Peet's Coffee and Tea

Made in Louisville, Ky., the refrigerator/brewing system combination (CFE28USHSS/CYE22USHSS) will be available in stainless steel. With an MSRP of $3,300 US, it will be available in the third quarter of 2015 wherever appliances are sold.
