    Skyway Acrylic Coffee End Table

    Draft 922 Big

    We like a movable coffee stand that can take up as little space as possible. The Skyway clear acrylic table, designed by W. Earle, measures only 20"(h) x 14"(w) x 17"(d), the piece can wrap around the raised edge of a sofa or it can be used sitting next to a chair or couch. Each Skyway table is made to order and quantities are limited.

    Seattle's Best Tassimo T Discs

    Seattlesbest Tassimo Tdiscs

    We just received the latest Wired magazine, and sure enough, there are Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs listed on the bottom of the advertisement for Tassimo. We've been hearing rumors from the Single Serve Coffee Forums, that on the back of every TassimoDirect.com receipt Tassimo listed Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs as an option. We can now confirm this is true.

    We are really excited about this news. Since Starbuck's owns Seattle's Best, perhaps this is their way of testing the single serve coffee waters. Whatever the case may be, we can't wait to try the new Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs. We'll have more news and reviews of the Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs as it happens.

    Baronet Monster 12 gram Coffee Pods

    Spook Main New

    We often use the line from Jaws when fishing, "You're going to need a bigger boat." We think the line might be adjusted to fit the 12 gram Monster Coffee Pods from Baronet, "You're going to need a bigger mug!"

    CoffeeWiz.com has the House Blend Deluxe Monster Coffee pods from Baronet - a distinctive blend of Central and South American coffees. You won't have to do any more coffee pod stacking with those pesky 7 gram coffee pods, and they come packed 16 in a box. These coffee pods will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, and Krups Home Cafe single serve coffee pod brewers. We've enjoyed the Monster coffee pods in the past, and are anxious to try the new blends.

    Halloween Coffee Mugs

    halloweenmugs.jpg Halloween is right around the corner. We just did a run down of some Pumpkin Spice single serve coffees in K Cups and Coffee Pod styles. Well, we need something to serve those drinks up in, and we found these Halloween Festive mugs to enjoy our coffee in. I like the one with the witch on her broom. While I would recommend a nice coffee in these, a good hot cider is a great fall classic too. Enjoy.

    Glow Cap - The illuminated Lid for Standard Disposable Coffee Cups

    Large Bs518055 3


    Bs518055 5The Glow Cap was created to highlight the sip hole of a beverage lid, or for single serve coffee drinkers - a coffee cup lid! We're not sure how much glow you'd get in the city (as we're in Boston), but we can remember days of growing up in rural Maine where this might come in handy. We also think this might be a killer addition to movie drink tops, as we are always wondering where the straw end or drink hole is in a darkened movie.

    We're not sure when you'll see glow caps, as the site seems to be from the inventor of the Glow Cap - Brandi Samuels. Maybe after a few rounds around the blogosphere, they'll get their wish and Glow Caps will start appearing in a dark place near you.

    From the site:

    Traveling between dusk and dawn means spending a good portion of time in dimly lit situations. Beverage consumption during such times can be difficult with disposable containers. The sip hole of a beverage cup lid is small and can become hard to find in the dark. Those trying to consume coffee, tea, or other hot beverages can easily spill the drink, burning themselves if incorrectly guessing the location of the sip hole. This can be a frustrating and annoying experience for consumers. The Glow Cap provides the perfect solution to this problem.

    Senseo Sumatra Blend Coffee Pods Review

    Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews Sumatra_16ct.jpg

    We've been trying various different coffee pods in our new Senseo Supreme single serve coffee maker, and we're very excited to get beyond the Senseo dark roast as our core Senseo coffee pod offering. The Senseo Sumatra blend claims to be a more bold and intense roast than it's counterparts and comes from a higher more mountainous Arabica bean. How does it stand up to it's older siblings?

    Coffee tables for any occasion? We do believe in that. Since we routinely find a bunch of coffee tables from all over the Web, it's nice to see one site offer an impressive selection of coffee tables you can buy. Not only does All Coffee Tables have a large selection, but they also have a range of prices. Check it out - we lost over an hour just surfing through all the options.

    Yuban Rain Forest Alliance Coffee for Tassimo

    Pop Yuban Rfa

    We've been sampling the new Yuban Rainforest Alliance for Tassimo and have to say - WOW. We love the smooth body and medium roast flavor along with the rich flavor the coffee provides in each sip. We only received three T Discs of the Yuban to try, and have not shared them with any of the staff at Single Serve Coffee except for a taste from an already brewed cup.

    This medium-bodied coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans and Yuban is the world's largest supporter of Rainforest Alliance certified coffee beans. This partnership protects the environment and supports the people and wildlife in coffee growing regions. They come packed 16 T DISCS per package and are only $4.99 per package and are available at Tassimodirect.com.

    Jetboil Java Kit - Great Coffee in the Outdoors

    Img 3045

    PcsblackfFrenchpressfWe admit to being a rather casual hiker, but we also admit to always bringing our Jet Boil stove to make a cup of soup and also water for our Preva xSport portable expresso maker. It looks like we have another option to put in our pack - a French Press from Jet Boil themselves. The featherweight Coffee Press brings civilization with you (and better yet - good coffee), even to the most uncivilized locations. Each Coffee Press includes a basket, rod, knob and multi-purpose lid and it stows securely inside the Jetboil PCS.

    We'll be putting the Jetboil Java Kit through it's paces over the next two weeks on some Fall leaf viewing voyages - so stay tuned!

    Revisiting the Reuseable My K Cup Coffee Filter for Keurig

    Over in the Single Serve Coffe Forums there's a very cool thread about revisiting the Keurig Resuesable My K Cup. We've been putting our new Keurig B70 through the paces and also have recently been using the My K Cup with it and have to say - it makes a great cup of coffee. The best thing about having the reuseable My K Cup is the fact we get a ton of coffees sent to us in non-single serve coffee form, and we're loathe to brew a pot of coffee, so having the My K Cup around always gives us the chance to sample the different coffees we receive.

    The Keurig My K-Cup reuseable coffee filter will work in the Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B-60 Special Edition, and Keurig B70 brewers.

    Review: Nespresso Ensibuko Limited Edition Coffee Capsules

    Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews IMG_3038.jpg

    Twice a year Nespresso offers two different limited edition coffee's for your Nespresso single serve coffee system. The new Ensibuko coffee is from Uganda and combines Arabica and Robusta coffees. We just watched the movie last night, "The Last King of Scotland" and it makes this coffee even that much more special. Uganda has been through some pretty terrible times over the past 30 years, and after such a brutal movie, it's nice to have a cup of coffee from the troubled Uganda to remind us not everything is going terribly wrong there.

    The Nespresso Ensibuko Limited Edition Coffee Capsules are very rich and dark. We've been using our Nespresso C90 and doing two capsules for a larger Lungo cup of coffee. The coffee produced is also low in acid and has a very rich mouth feel. The crema is thick and creamy and we're really impressed with the overall character the coffee has.

    Want to get your own Nespresso Ensibuko Limited Edition Coffee Capsules? You'll only able to get them online at Nespresso or in select Nespresso boutiques.

  • Nespresso Variations - Flavored Coffees for Nespresso

    We love our Nespresso C90 and look forward to the different Nespresso club exclusive coffee blends that come only twice a year. Well - the Nespresso Variations are something completely different. It's really a first for Nespresso - flavored coffees. Now flavored coffees aren't new, but they are for Nespresso.

    The new Nespresso Variations come in the following flavors:

    • Absolute Vanilla Smoothness
    • Fruity, Spicy Apple and Cinnamon Fusion
    • Cool Aniseed Sensation

    These flavors won't be out until Mid-November, and will only be available through the Nespresso Store online or in select Nespresso boutiques. Pricing will be $.55 a capsule or $5.50 per 10 capsule sleeve.

    Best of all? We just received an entire set to review. We'll have a full review soon and can't wait to try the Cool Aniseed - as licorice is our favorite flavor. Pernod anyone?

The adjustable spout is also nice, as we can now fit more coffee cups under the spout for single serve coffee brewings. We like the blue LED touches, but we're not sold on the adjustable cup size and no clock on top of the new model. Why not both? We'll have a full review soon.

    Yes. It's a mad mad mad world. We have received from our good friend Jim Evans at CoffeeWhiz.com - not one - not two - but six different pumpkin spice coffees to try. Three of the coffees are for your single serve coffee maker that uses coffee pods and will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, and Krups Home Cafesingle serve coffee pod brewers. The pumpkin spice coffee pods are from: Baronet Coffee, Reunion Island Coffee Pods, and Melitta's One: One JavaPods.

    Review: Keurig Platinum B70 K Cup Single-Cup Brewer

    Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews T22126 Large

    We've been testing the Keurig Platinum B70 K Cup Single-Cup Brewer along side it's older cousin the Keurig B60 brewer for over 2 weeks and find the two cousins to be refreshingly different. What's different from the Keurig Platinum B70 K Cup Single-Cup Brewer compared with the B40, B50, and comparable B60? Basically, a smaller footprint, larger reservoir and reduced noise during brewing. It also features 4 programmable cup sizes versus 3 on the Keurig B60, the largest topping out at a whopping 11.25 oz, which is enough to fill just about any travel mug with lots of coffee.

    So readers had a bunch of questions we needed to answer:

    • Is it really more quiet than the older models?
    • How much of a difference does the larger reservoir make?
    • Were there other changes you like or didn't like?
    • How is the coffee compared to the B60 or B50?
    • Did you like the larger brew size option of 11.25 oz?

    We answer all your questions and if you'd like to see how we rated the other Keurig brewers - for a full run down of our impressions of the B40 and B60, you can read a full review here. For a full review of the Keurig B50, you can read our full review here.

    Automatic Sugar Dispenser

    A53998.jpg

    We're pretty sure a hint has been thrown to our sugar mess we leave each morning after brewing our morning cups of single serve coffee. If you didn't know, one of our fellow Blogpire blogs is written by Maya Bazar, and it's called Kitchen Contraptions. Okay Maya - we get the hint. Less mess for you to deal with in the morning if we use the Automatic Sugar Dispenser.

    Being married to the proprietor of Single Serve Coffee, we always have sugar all over our counter. This is a cool way to avoid the mess of a sugar bowl. It automatically dispenses sugar at the touch of a button. One touch dispenses half a teaspoon. It holds a quarter pound of sugar.

    Keurig B200 Commercial Brewer for Small to Mid Size Offices

    B200 Image

    We recently visited the Keurig offices and had the pleasure of getting to use the new Keurig B200 commercial brewer. We really like the clear controls and think this would look excellent in any small to mid size office. It's got a slew of new features including back to back brewing and a new LED screen. It really looks like a much larger Keurig B70. You won't be able to order this for your home, it's available for offices only, but we can all dream our boss will pick this coffee system over some crazy drip coffee maker or service.


    Features include:

    • A sleek, upscale and modern design that will grace any office
    • Pourover or direct water line plumbed capability
    • An attractive LCD user interface that walks first-time users through the brew process--programmable in English (default), French, or Spanish!
    • Choice of two brew options: regular 8 oz. or a more robust 6 oz.
    • Unlimited back to back brewing every 60 seconds. In pourover mode, the brewer will brew back to back until the 64 oz. water tank is empty. In plumbed mode users get unlimited back to back brewing every minute with no lengthy reheat delay.
    • A modular vending accessory kit -- converts to a vend unit with a simple panel change
    • Distributor menu controls -- Distributors can set service phone number, vending options, and obtain important diagnostic information.

    Tasting Tully's French Roast K-Cups for Keurig

    Img 2211-1

    On our recent visit to Keurig, several of the team members turned us back onto the new Tully's French Roast K-cups for your Keurig single serve coffee maker. We reviewed the Tully's French Roast coffee when it was in pre-release, and didn't get to have more than a few cups.

    We can say now, after getting two packs of the K-Cups - they're still excellent. The Tully's French roast has a very smokey and interesting flavor and perhaps one of the best tasting french roast coffee's we've had in K-Cup form. The roast produces an almost chocolate like flavor, and when milk and sugar are added, it really lives up to anything you'd get at Starbuck's for a darker roast.

    Since we don't have Tully's coffee stores here in the Northeast, we're all dying to try the Tully's French Roast right from a Tully's store, but for now will have to settle for drinking it at home with our new Keurig B70.

    Quick Coffee Picks: Tassimo Jacobs Kroenung Coffee T-Discs

    Pop Kronung

    Do you love your Tassimo but long for something interesting, very Sunday morning, and smooth with no acid in the coffee you drink? Look no further than the new Jacobs Kroenung T-Discs. Okay - so they're not so new, but they are very good. We once longed for they're coffee pod cousins, but now you can get them for your Braun Tassimo Hot Beverage System TA1400.

    As far as we can tell, you can only get these at Tassimo direct. Get 'em while you still can.
