Food maker Kraft Foods Inc. said Tuesday it is partnering with Starbucks Corp. to add several varieties of the chain's coffee to the Tassimo single-cup brewing system in the U.S. and Canada.
Kraft said starting in December Tassimo owners will be able to buy four Starbucks coffees _ House Blend, Breakfast Blend, Caffe Verona and Africa Kitamu _ to use in the Tassimo machines at home. Kraft already handles sales and marketing for Starbucks coffee in supermarkets and club stores in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada.
Kraft also said Bosch Household Appliances will launch a new Tassimo brewer under the Bosch name in mid-2008.
The company said it is also introducing a Latte Macchiato and Twinings Chai Tea Latte to its Tassimo beverage lineup.
