A Lansing, Mich.-area woman who sued after Starbucks stopped making coffee for her single-serving machine has settled for $250. Pam Montgomery of Okemos said she purchased a Tassimo coffeemaker by Kraft Foods because it could make Starbucks coffee. But Starbucks ended its deal with Kraft and came up with its own machine.
