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.

Leaking Coffee Cup from IKEA

060907 3 How about a leaky bottom on your single serve coffee cup? The leaky bottom helps to make sure the annoying puddles on the top of the cup never happens in your dishwasher. Of course, you could just set the cup at a slight angle and do the same thing, if you really want to be sure these cups are for you.

Melitta Ready Set Joe Mug & Cone Coffee Maker

B000Ejexwi.01-A1Ndbs7Ygopbd6. Aa210 Sclzzzzzzz We've experienced the Ready Set Joe One-Cup Coffeemaker from Melitta several times over the past year. One on a trip to San Francisco where we had fresh roasted coffee made with it that was nothing short of amazing. The second time was on the side of a mountain camping up in New Hampshire, and more recently we got a present of some fresh roasted coffee and tried it out again. Good results always seemingly follow if you're patient, pour your hot water slowly, and then kick back and relax with the coffee.

Green Mountain Coffee Roaster's Ecotainer Coffee Cup


Green Mountain has been working with International paper over the past year to create a compost-able coffee cup - dubbed the EcoTainer. They're making such a cup because Americans discarded over 14.4 billion cups just last year.

Based on anticipated growth of specialty coffees, that number will grow to 23 billion by 2010--enough to circle the globe 88 times." Plus they calculated that the petrochemicals consumed in the making of that many cups would be equal to keeping 8,300 homes heated for one year. The Ecotainer addresses this by having corn based liner, instead using a quarter of a million pounds of petro-plastic. In short, it can be composted and returned to the earth to make more soil. GMCR and IP go on to suggest that by opting for a corn-based they'll conserve the consumption of nearly 250,000 pounds (113,400 kg) of non-renewable petrochemicals every year. And 70% of the energy used for the paperboard manufacture is from renewables.

We hope that the K-Cups being produced will also be compost-able in the near future. Recyclable or compost-able K-Cups would make everyone here at Single Serve Coffee really happy and also make the future of single serve coffee more planet friendly.

Global Warming Coffee Mug Heats up the Topic

PzglobalwarmingmugWhat's not to love about a global warming coffee mug? Global warming. Sure to to be a topic of conservation this ceramic mug shows you the consequences of global warming as you sip your coffee in the morning, changing the world back to normal just as you finish it.

When you pour hot beverage into the mug, you simulate global warming as the map of the world heats up and shows the oceans rising and land vanishing. A pleasant reminder to take better care of our planet and reduce that CO2. The coffee mug will set you back $15 bucks but at least you'll feel a bit greener.
