    How Quiet is the Keurig B70 Single Serve Coffee Maker?

    keurig_coffee_quiet_b70.jpg

    We've been testing the new Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer over the past few days, and one of the claims of the new Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer is that it's more quiet than the older Keurig B40, B50, and B60 brewers. How much quieter is it? Well - we've made two videos after the jump that can let you be the judge and jury.

    Senseo Supreme Single Serve Coffee Maker Arrives for Review

    B000Hwpkag.01. Aa280 Sclzzzzzzz V41406058

    B000Hwpkag.01.Pt05. Aa280 Sclzzzzzzz V41406058 Senseo has a new single serve coffee maker and we've got it for review a little ahead of release sometime in October. The Senseo Supreme Single Serve Coffee Machine in Metallic Chrome looks to be the next step in an already easy to use single serve coffee maker. Besides the obvious exterior change of chrome plating, the Senseo Supreme features adjustable cup size for 3oz., 4 oz., 5 oz. cup and 6oz., 8 oz., 10 oz. mugs of coffee. The adjustable cup size is on the top of the pressure brew head and so far we've been making amazing cups of Sumatra - yes we said Sumatra roast coffee for the past two mornings. YUM!

    We'll have a full review soon.

    Review: Hamilton Beach BrewStation Deluxe Single Serve Coffee Maker

    Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews47454

    The Hamilton Beach 47454 BrewStation Deluxe 12-Cup Coffeemaker may make 12 cups total like a typical drip coffee maker, but it dispenses them one cup at a time. Does this really make the Hamilton Beach BrewStation® Deluxe 12 Cup Coffee maker a single serve coffee maker?

    Well alas no. But it does make it a single serve coffee dispenser. The Hamilton Beach BrewStation® Deluxe 12 Cup Coffee maker has all the bells and whistles you'd expect for a drip coffee maker with the convenience of single serve coffee, however the clean up and brewing of the coffee takes longer than what you'd get using a single serve coffee maker like the Senseo or Keurig systems.

    Capressoe8-Thumb

    Looks like Scott and crew over at SingleServeEspresso.com have gotten their hands on the rather impressive - Impressa E8 Super Automatic espresso machine. We first reviewed this wonder here at SingleServeCoffee.com over 2 years ago, but as with most coffee makers things have evolved and changed.

    Nestlé to Build Fresh Factory for Nespresso

    Nespresso Le Cube C180 - Arctic White - 1-2-1

    Looks like Nespresso is getting a little too big for just a few coffee plants and needs more space for all those Nespresso capsules. We're a pretty big fan of the Nespresso system and growth means the system is here to stay. Perhaps this will mean even more exclusive coffee capsules for your Nespresso system in the future.

    Sales of Nespresso, which is made from hermetically sealed aluminium capsules containing ground coffee, have risen more than 30 per cent annually for the last five years. Nestlé praised the division for driving the company's 7.8 per cent increase in beverage sales during the first half of 2006. The decision to build a new production and distribution centre displays the firm's confidence in continued market growth. Nespresso, dubbed coffee's answer to teabags, has latched on to the coffee culture already present in several European countries and growing rapidly in others, especially the UK.

    Save $50 on the Keurig B60 Single Serve Coffee Brewer

    B60-Kcupl-Web

    We love our Keurig Special Edition B60 and think the price reduction from $199.95 to $149.95 makes it a total steal and a hot deal. Also, with the release of the Keurig B70 sometime in early October and at $50 dollars more, if you want to get a Keurig now and want to enjoy the price reduction in the Keurig B60, there's no better time than the present.

    If you purchase the Keurig B60 now you can also get a free variety pack of 24-K-Cups. If you're looking for a good comparison of the B40, B50, and B60 brewers we've got a great article we put together last year. What we really like about the B60 over the B40 and B50 - the auto-on, clock, and blue LED lights. Yep - we love those lights and each morning seeing them over some harsh overhead lights makes getting a cup of single serve coffee even easier.

    Keurig B60 Features:

    Three brew sizes:
    * 5.25-oz. more intense cup
    * 7.25-oz. regular cup
    * 9.25-oz. travel mug
    * Adjustable brew temperature
    * Blue backlit LCD display and water reservoir
    * Digital clock, Programmable on/off timer
    * Ready to brew three minutes after turned on

    * Chrome handle and faceplate
    * 11" wide, 13" deep, 13.5" tall
    * 16.5" tall when opened

    Hamilton Beach BrewStation Deluxe Single Serve Coffeemaker Arrives for Review

    Img 2913

    We're not sure why the woman on the box needs to make phone calls all the time, but we do know that we're anxious to try the new Hamilton Beach 47454 BrewStation Deluxe 12-Cup Coffeemaker. It may make 12 cups total, but it dispenses them one cup at a time so we think this puts it in the realm of single serve coffee. The Hamilton Beach BrewStation® Deluxe 12 Cup Coffeemaker has all the bells and whistles you'd expect for a drip coffee maker with the convenience of single serve coffee. We'll be reviewing it over the next several weeks and we'll let you know if it hits the mark or not.

    • One-hand dispensing--no carafe, no pouring, no spills
    • Coffee stays fresh longer
    • Four brew modes: Normal, Decaf, Flavor +™ and 1-4 cups
    • Gentle warming heater
    • No hot plate to scorch coffee flavor
    • Programmable clock/timer with adjustable auto shutoff
    • Never break another glass carafe
    • Gold-tone and water filters included

    Laser Pointer Meets Eco Pad Refillable Coffee Filter for Senseo

    Readers just keep sending it in and we couldn't ignore it - laser pointers and reusable coffee filters? We love the package deal when buying accessories and gadgets for our single serve coffee maker but often we see them a bit more coffee related. The only good thing we've seen a laser pointer used for is for taunting cats while drinking coffee. Perhaps this was the intent of the combo deal all along?

    The Eco Pad will work in your Senseo and perhaps your Home Cafe single serve coffee maker so you can use whatever coffee you like.

    Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup Brewer Arrives for Review

    IMG_2952.jpg

    We've just received the new Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer. Will it replace our trusted Keurig B60 in the Single Serve Coffee test kitchen? We sure hope so. With improvements over the B50 and B60, the Keurig B70 gives you a set of new features including a 60 oz water reservoir, and even a new cup size for brewing at 11.25 oz. We also like the new footprint of the Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer and hope the smaller size fits even better under our kitchen cabinets. Expect a full review soon!

    Lavazza Blue Pininfarina Single Serve Coffee Maker Arrives for Review

    Img 2954

    Café-Razzi has sent us the Lavazza Blue single serve coffee system to review. The Lavazza Blue is really called the "Pininfarina Pro" and is designed with a patented brewing mechanism to match the coffee capsules and assures a perfect cup each time. Lavazza has teamed up with two world famous Italian companies Pininfarina and Saeco to design and manufacture this machine. The sleek modern look was created by Pininfarina, famous for designing Italian exotics like Ferrari. The machine makes both coffee drinks and espresso based drinks.

    Café-Razzi is currently the premier distributor of the Lavazza Blue system and features a coffee club that has a 30 day free trial. We'll be testing it over the next few weeks and already we're enjoying the ease of use from the capsule based system.

    Update: Read our full review of the Lavazza Blue Pininfarina here...

    B000Hwpkag.01.Pt05. Aa280 Sclzzzzzzz V41406058 Looks like Senseo has a new single serve coffee maker coming out on October 1st - the new Senseo Supreme Single Serve Coffee Machine in Metallic Chrome. Besides the obvious exterior change of chrome plating, the Senseo Supreme features adjustable cup size for 3oz., 4 oz., 5 oz. cup and 6oz., 8 oz., 10 oz. mugs of coffee. We've been waiting for this feature for quite awhile, as we've enjoyed it on our Bunn My Cafe for over a year.

    The package also includes a bonus 68 gourmet coffee pods, plus coupons for 10 free cappuccino pods and 20 free tea pods. There is even a Free tea-pod holder included. It still looks like you will still have some trouble getting a travel mug under the Senseo spout, but the adjustable spout allows for use of your favorite coffee cup, from small cup to a mug. And finally, the best feature - a "33% Larger Water Reservoir (32 oz.) - dishwasher Safe. Woot!

    We'll have a full run-down soon as we round up the new Senseo HD7832 Supreme Single Serve Coffee Machine in Metallic Chrome to review. A special thanks to Brian for sending us this killer tip!

    Single Serve Coffee Visits Keurig

    The staff at SingleServeCoffee.com visited Keurig - makers of the new Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer and the Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Ultra Elite B60. We met with Kristin Cefalo - the product marketing manager for Keurig at Home who gave us several demos of their new products coming out this Fall.

    Not only did we get a demo of the new Keurig Platinum B70 Single-Cup brewer, but we got to sample a ton of different varieties of K-Cup coffees from Tully's, Diedrich, and others. We also got to try out the new B200 commercial brewer (pictured above) that gives you instructions on how to brew a cup of K-Cup coffee.

There's really no setup and it receives all the data via the FM band. It's going to be available at $199 soon.

  • Zero-In Coffee Table

    Draft 657 Big

    The Zero-In Coffee Table, designed by Barber Osgerby is a futuristic wonder. We love the inverted - yet slightly curved base that reminds us of furniture from ten forward on the Star Trek Enterprise. The base of the table is made of high-gloss molded polyester, angled, and topped off by a panel of glass. The table is both practical in space but not so practical in being able to store anything under it. Oh well - we'll just have to suffer for the sake of looking like we're drinking coffee in the future.

    Gevalia Coffee Singles Brewing System Accommodates 14-ounce Cups

    We really try to only cover the home market, but so many of the same players are making single serve coffee for the larger on the go coffee market and it's just too interesting to ignore. Gevalia Singles Hot Beverage Brewing equipment has been redesigned with a new front door to accommodate larger 14-oz. cup sizes in their restaurant/ vending single serve coffee maker.

    The Gevalia brewing system uses single coffee cartridges to brew premium-quality coffee beverages by the cup. By accommodating larger cups sizes, the redesigned machines now let users brew multiple cartridges into the same cup and experiment with flavors.

    "Consumers now have the option of combining flavors to create their own unique blends," said Stacey Rychlewski, Kraft Foodservice Business Development Manager. "Whether it's our House Blend coffee combined with our Cappuccino or our Hazelnut combined with the Espresso, there's a lot of room for experimentation that wasn't there before."

    Review: Aloha Island Coffee Private Estate Gold 100% Kona Coffee Pods

    Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 2872We like our Kona coffee, but often find it comes in blends instead of being 100% pure uncut Kona coffee. Aloha Island Coffee has been making 100% pure Kona coffee pods for over 2+ years now. Back when we started SingleServeCoffee.com, the Kona Coffee Pods from Aloha Island Coffee were the only other coffee pods you could purchase for your Senseo single serve coffee maker at the time. Now you can purchase these coffee pods for your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, and Krups Home Cafe single serve coffee pod brewers.

    A little back story on Aloha Island 100% Pure Estate Kona Coffee:

    When Jim Robinette and Anita Harrington retired to the Big Island of Hawaii a few years ago, little did they dream they would apply all the skills they had gained through careers in manufacturing and technology to the growing of the absolute best Kona coffee.

    “We had always admired the flavor of pure Kona coffee on our many visits to Hawaii” says Jim. “But living here, we soon realized this is a very special product that would benefit from the application of time-honored methods of Total Quality Management”.


    We love the story of buying some property on Hawaii and making the time honored tradition of making Kona Coffee even better, and we'd also like to point out the Kona coffee used in the Kona Coffee pods from Aloha Island is harvested entirely by hand and pesticide free. YES!

    Coca Cola Single Serve Coffee Anyone?

    060907_coca_cola_execs_300.jpg

    Okay - so maybe not "Single Serve Coffee" but definitely coffee and espresso served in a quick service style. The Coca-Cola Co. on Wednesday debuted its "Far Coast" high-end brand of premium coffee and tea beverages, and also unveiled a complimentary brand for convenience stores and quick-service restaurants called "Chaqwa." These are more like the 7-Eleven of coffee then a machine you'd bring home, but it makes us wonder - maybe in the end the big beverage companies will catch on that people love coffee just as much as soda. Maybe...

    As Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported in January, Coca-Cola had been quietly investigating for a couple of years ways to brew high-quality coffee, espresso and teas quickly in individual servings. The Atlanta-based beverage giant (NYSE: KO) filed five U.S. patent applications in 2005 for coffee and tea "pod" designs, single-serving brewing machines, and a system to steam milk to make hot espresso and cappuccino. In late 2005, Coca-Cola filed nine applications to trademark the name Far Coast for coffee, coffee grinders, hats, fruit tea and other products.

    Revisiting the Simplehuman Single Cup Pod Brewer

    P-Coffee-Pod-Brewer-2

    As the Fall gets under way, we've been revisiting many of the single serve coffee makers that will be competing this Fall for your hard earned dollars. We really still feel the simplehuman Coffee Pod Brewer is one of the best designed machines around. It's got just about everything you would need in a single serve coffee maker - including a nice range of coffee pods from the simplehuman house brand Molto, a large reservoir, and different brew cup sizes to choose from. The simplehuman brewer will also take 10 gram coffee pods from other vendors including Cool Beans Coffee Pods, Aloha Island Coffee, and others.

    We also love the coffee it produces - deep rich interesting cups of coffee are produced each time. If you're looking for something a bit more stylish and with the bells and whistles you'd expect a decent price - the simplehuman coffee pod brewer is for you. It's now available from simplehuman via Amazon.com for $129.95.

These new Segways now come with LeanSteer™ technology, which allows you to turn right or left by leaning in that direction, in the same fashion that forward/backward control is currently available.

    Another addition is the use of InfoKey™ controller, essentially a keyless fob that increases security. The i2 has a range of about 24 miles, while the x2 goes only about 12 miles.

    Yes - we know we picked the winner last month, but we also know people tend to go on vacation in August and it can really wreak havoc on getting the winner to respond in a timely fashion. Would you even check your email on the beach to see if you'd won a FLAVIA FUSION? WE WOULD!

    We'd like to congratulate Steve from Canada for winning our FLAVIA FUSION Drinks Station for last month.

    From Steve:

    I visit the site to keep abreast of trends in the single cup OCS market. I'm excited to win it because it will let me evaluate one of the many delivery systems available to consumers.

    Thanks again to the folks at FLAVIA for providing us with a machine to give away. Stay tuned for more giveaways this Fall on SingleServeCoffee.com

    From FLAVIA:

    Mouldy Coffee is Good Coffee

    Coffeebeans1

    Don't turn your nose up to mouldy coffee - it tastes better, according to fungus experts. Tastes better? We can't seem to get beyond the YUCK factor here at Single Serve Coffee, however new Brazilian research has found that fungus in coffee crops makes for a flavoursome brew.

    "The coffee research is exciting as it's likely to have implications on how coffee is grown and consumed in the future," says Professor Paul Gadek, a plant science researcher from James Cook University in Cairns.
    "Fungus naturally occurs on raw coffee beans and the Brazilian researchers found that the sweeter the species, the better the coffee tasted and smelt."

    Review: Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother from Nespresso

    Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews 00480

    We're always on the look out for something to make our single serve coffee experience even better. Last year we ran several articles on products you could get that would bring milk frothing to your single serve coffee and now we're excited to tell you about the new Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother from Nespresso.

    The Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother is a new, automatic and simple way of creating light, creamy milk froth. You just pour in some cold or hot, fresh skim milk and press the button. The Aeroccino quietly and quickly produces an milk froth, which you can enjoy in many different coffee recipes including lattes and cappuccinos.

    To test the Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother, we used our Nespresso C90 for espresso creation - more in the lungo size. We also tried 1% milk, Skim milk, and 2% milk to see what would happen using the Aeroccino. How did it fair? Does it actually make good frothed milk?

    Melitta Padfilter - Refillable Coffee Pod Filter for the Senseo

    B000Fovqqi.01-Auhit9Psaa36E.Pt02. Ss400 Sclzzzzzzz V51852672 -1

    Much like the Eco-Pod Reusable coffee filter for Senseo, the Melitta Padfilter gives you the freedom to use your Senseo (or Senseo pod sized crème machine) with all types of ground coffee in your machine. We like the fact the Melitta Padfilter has a hinge top along with what does in fact look like thicker plastic. We'll be getting one of these very soon and will have a full brew off between the two.

    Simply fill the Melitta Padfilter, place it in the 2 pod holder of the Senseo machine and hit the coffee button! The Melitta Padfilters are durable, easily in use and dishwasher safe. Best of all it is made by a coffee company you know and trust, Melitta! The Melitta Padfilter is made better and stronger than the Ecopad or Quickcup. It also uses a patented hinged top that is easy to open, quick to close and you won't lose your pod top like you can with the Ecopad and Quickcup.

    Note: the Melitta Padfilter cannot be returned, so make sure you understand what you are buying. It is made to fit the Senseo Coffee machine and may not fit other brands.
