Melitta One:One LilyPod Microwave Brew Mug Arrives for Review

Img 1649Img 1651What's better than single serve coffee? Well - single serve microwave coffee! We're not totally sure on that just yet, but the new LiliPod Microwave Coffee Pod Brew Mug has arrived - actually two of them.

We purchased both the red and the blue one just because we have to have them. We never thought that after a year we'd have a microwave single serve coffee mug and it's well - exciting. The LilyPod Microwave Brew Mug supposedly brews up a nice cup of joe in 3 minutes or so and that means less mess and whatever flavor pod you'd like to throw into it. Nice. We'll have a full review in the next week or so. And - YES - it says you can make espresso and cappuccino in it. We'll be the judge of that.

The only downside to this method, for me, would be having to purchase the individual pods. I'm rather hooked on my own blend of freshly roasted beans, ground just before making my coffee.

I'm wondering if there's a re-useable filter 'pod' for this machine, like the gold filter basket which Melitta came out with to replace the paper filters in the old Melitta drip pots?

The Lilypod Will use all american pods, large and small, this includes teapods. If you want, you can actually use a regular tea bag, as long as you spread it over the area, as to force the water to go thru the tea. For a decent espresso, use the Melitta Juan Valdes 'Dark Roast' pods. Do not use Europeans pods, designed for large electrical machines since the coffee is very fine and needs too much pressure, to be practical in the microwave. You should have no problems with any of the drinks claimed, but resad the manual carefully, especially for the Cappuccino. After a little practice, it will be fun and acceptable. Remember to use the espresso pod I have suggested: Dark Roast for best extraction. This machine is really fun for your coffee break at work.

My father actually invented this machine and I have taste tested my fair share of coffee, espresso and tea pods from the lilypod. It is hard to tell the difference between the one:one machine and the lilypod mug. I actually prefer the lilypod along with my large family of "off the boat " Italians. You would not believe it unless you tried it yourself. It makes a superior cup of coffee and tea.

I'd like to know how does it work with tea pods? Can someone use different pods from other brands besides Melitta in this mug? Thank you.
