Coffee Is Saving Your Life

Coffee death benefits live longer

Over at there’s more news coffee is saving your life for those who don’t smoke and drink three to five cups a day. That’s right for people who've never smoked, the benefits of drinking coffee is pretty amazing: Those who drank between less than a cup of coffee and three cups a day had 6% to 8% lower risk of dying than noncoffee drinkers. Those who drank three to five cups and more than five cups had 15% and 12% lower death rates.

So I’m pretty sure I’m upping my game in with regards to coffee consumption. Are you?

Nespresso Gemini Business Class Single Serve Epresso Maker


I'm still on my trip in Ireland and this morning in Dublin proper. I'm pretty happy with the coffee choice at the Dublin office - a Gemini Nespresso business class single serve espresso maker.


I went with the darker of the roasts, and I am really impressed with the quality of the coffee. Dark and rich results from the small Nespresso disk, and the texture was silky and smooth. The office is also near Trinity College in Dublin making a little stroll out into Dublin and the College possible this morning.

Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinders by Thirst Friend

Burr grinder thirst friend

We received a set of the regular and mini versions of the Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinders by Thirst Friend. These grinders have been really great to use wth our Aeropress at work, and both are really portable with the mini coming with a bag to carry. You even get a scoop to use with each one, and the ceramic conical burr is easily adjustable to suit any range of brewing methods, from the finer grinds of Espresso to the coarser blend of French Press.

We have found the hand crank design is really easy to use, and the stainless steel coffee mill is sleek and durable, and really pleasing design. We can safely say these are some of the best little grinders we’ve used in quite awhile.

Teforia Tea Brewing Robot for Home

Teaforia process

Teforia is a personal tea making machine who use loose leaf tea for the ultimate tea brewing experience. Teforia knows what type of tea you’re brewing and how to properly brew it unlike a Keurig single serve coffee maker that just brews tea with no knowledge of what type of tea or brew time.  

Keurig is fine, but it doesn’t put any attention into the crafting process, or on how to adjust the brewing based on the type of tea. Teforia knows what type of tea you’re brewing and how to properly brew it, like having a tea master in your home.

Teforia works directly with farmers and estates to bring you the freshest and rarest collection of teas, including leaves from ancient forests and wild and pristine tea gardens, far from the reach of pesticides and modern-day pollutants.

Brew time takes 4 minutes, and Teforia says it will be the best cup of tea you’ve ever had. Teforia is on pre-order right now for $649, and the machine will go even higher after launch for $1299 MSRP.

The Keurig KOLD Is A Rather Odd Duck

Keurig kold oddity

TechCrunch has a pretty strong opinion on Keurig KOLD - it’s a bit of an odd duck.

The Keurig Kold is such an odd product that it almost looks like it came from a distant world where no one cares about corn syrup ingestion. Clad in white plastic and covered in grills, the case is far bigger than anything else in your kitchen and makes a noise like Darth Vader taking a nap. 

They also go on to say the machine is rather pointless given the price of soda. What do you think? Is the Keurig KOLD just a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist? Is single serve soda going to take off? Did you buy a KOLD? If so do you like it?

The jury is still out for us here. We see the appeal of the machine and convenience, but the price for the machine and the KOLD cartridges is really high. Also the size of the machine on the counter is really large. We’ll have to see how this plays out over the holidays but so far the reviews for the KOLD and articles are not that kind.

Called the Handpresso Pump Pop, the latest portable espresso maker from Handpresso comes in funky colours (pink, apple green or sky blue on a white body).

This has not been achieved at the expense of quality. The Handpresso Pump Pop is as sturdy as ever and can be brought along in the most extreme situations. To illustrate this, Handpresso has made a range of fun short videos presenting the product in lots of unusual situations, e.g. underwater, while skiing, in the supermarket.
