SEATTLE -- Starbucks said it will begin selling its coffee and Tazo tea in K-Cup portion packs for Keurig brewers in November.

In March, Starbucks announced a deal with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, maker of the Keurig single-cup system, that designates the Seattle roaster as the exclusive licensed super-premium brand for the brewer for the duration of the agreement. Terms of that deal were not disclosed. | SEE STORY

Starbucks K-Cups will launch in grocery, drug, department and wholesale stores in the U.S. at the end of the year. They will be available in Canada, as well as at Starbucks and Green Mountain's websites early next year. Starbucks cafés will begin selling Keurig brewers and Starbucks K-Cups later in 2012.

Dunkin Brands began selling its own K-Cups at its Dunkin Donuts stores in August. | SEE STORY
