An American coffee company based in Irvine, California, Diedrich closed its company-owned stores and sold its franchises to focus on wholesale sales of coffee and producing K-Cups for Green Mountain Coffee Roasters’ Keurig coffee maker. In December, after a bidding war with Peet Coffee, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters came to an agreement to purchase Diedrich for $290 million. Keurig Dr Pepper is now the owner of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.
