Gourmesso Bolivia Pura Mezzo Nespresso Compatible Coffee Capsules Review

Gourmesso box shot

Gourmesso is a fairly recent player to the Nespresso compatible coffee capsule market. Gourmet recently sent us a wide range of their Nespresso compatible Lungo and Espresso capsules. Most of their coffees are Fair Trade, and we decided to start with the Bolivia Pure Mezzo Gourmesso capsules. Each of their capsules come packed in boxes with 10 capsules with 2 capsules to each pouch. The pouches are not resealable, but we didn’t seem to have a problem pulling a few shots of each and not letting the coffee get stale.

Cafflano - Pourover Travel Mug

Cafflano brewer

Single serve coffee in pour over form is the latest trend that doesn’t seem to be trending to go away. The coffee produced is really great, but having to take your setup on the go has been so far challenging. The Cafflano is designed as a simple, portable system for remote or space-saving pourover brewing.

Cafflano parts description1 600x331

The Cafflano contains a tumbler, a reusable drip filter, a hand mill ceramic burr grinder with a folding metal handle, and a top that doubles as a drip kettle through a small opening. Th entire Cafflano screws together creating a single 7.5-inch tall kit that weighs about a pound. You’ll still need a source of hot water and you’ll need to bring your favorite coffee as well to the pour over party.

Stash Mango Passionfruit Herbal Tea Single Cups Review

Stash singlecup mango cupshot

We continue our look at some recent Stash tea single cups by checking out the Stash Mango Passionfruit Herbal Tea Single Cups. We rather enjoyed their Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea Single Cups and are hoping that this flavor will be on par with that experience. Let’s find out.

Brewing these Single Cups resulted in tropical aromas of sweet mangos and exotic passionfruit filling the room with a rather pleasant, almost floral scent which reminded us (oddly enough) of a Glade Hawaiian Breeze Plug-In. Flavor was pretty much identical as we detected some mildly tart passionfruit notes up front quickly followed by sweeter mango notes on the back end. We suspect that since this is billed as an herbal tea that it’s likely a tisane of the primary ingredients mixed into a brew without the inclusion of any actual teas since we didn’t detect any green or black tea notes whatsoever. If we had to declare a primary flavor in the mix, we’d give the upper hand to the passionfruit notes as they emerge as the stronger of the 2 compared to the mango. Again, much like last time, there’s no mistaking the primary ingredients as you get a strong flavor vs. something weak or watery.

Stash Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea Single Cups Review

 

IMGP6249 stash tea single cups

Stash is a brand of tea we’ve seen slowly yet steadily expand with its retail presence over the past few years. It seems that every few weeks when we do a grocery run, we notice a new Stash flavor or packaging redesign. A quick look on their website shows that Stash got their start in Tigard, Oregon (a suburb of Portland) back in 1972 and were even operated out of a Portland Victorian style house supplying loose herbals teas and bulk herbs to local natural food stores in their early years. 

This privately-held company then broadened their offerings in 1975 to include bagged teas as well as a full offering of traditional, specialty blend and herbal teas directly to restaurants and through mail order catalogues to consumers. We’ll allow anyone 20 or younger to Google the term mail order catalog for a minute. Stash tea products can now be found in many countries around the world and they’ve entered the single serve market recently with the introduction of Keurig-compatible (1.0 only, not 2.0) single cups.  Today we take a look at 1 of their newer flavors to pop up on store shelves… Stash Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea Single Cups.

Mysterious Keurig 2.0 550 Brewer Orange Disc - Solved

Mysterious keurig orange disk

Over the weekend we had a reader write in regarding a mysterious orange disk that they received in their Keurig 2.0 550 brewer. We think it looks like a shipping disk with some instructions on it showing how to set up the brewer. Are we correct?

From Steve:

I received a replacement Keurig 2.0 550 brewer and the attached disc was included. The code on the plastic bag is KPCS 500057121. Can you tell m what is is? Thanks

Update from Steve:

I found a video. It's the 2nd video under Keurig 2.0 Support. Titled - Keurig Brewer Maintenance Accessory.

Jevo - The Keurig For Jell-O Shots

Jello

You knew it would only be a matter of time before someone invented a Keurig like machine to produce Jell-O shots. The Jevo makes it possible to get a single-serving of your favorite jello shot in minutes. The Jevo cranks out 20 Jell-O Shots in just 10 minutes using pods and the accompanying machine. The Jevo also has a variety of Jell-O pod flavors you can enjoy including Maragita, Strawberry, Pina Colada, and Mixed Berry.

 The Jevo is mostly aimed at bars and parties, but we think it would sit right along side our current set of single serve coffee makers. That's provided we didn’t get too confused in the morning and start doing Jell-O shots instead of espresso shots. Maybe the two would go great together?
