You've made the perfect cup of single serve coffee but get called away to chat at the office or have to put the dog out. You come back and you've got a super cold cup of coffee. Oucher. The USB Hotplate and Port Hub will fix the problem and extend your USB Ports - keeping your coffee hot and your computer peripherals powered.

illy has just announced the first in its 2006 espresso cup art collection - Jan Fabre's "The Blue Hour".
Fabre often uses the "blue hour" in his works. This concept was inherited from Jean-Henri. The artist is sometimes able to identify himself with the objects, with the organisms and with the questions that he investigates through his art, because he totally emerges himself. In fact, Fabre is sometimes a plant or an insect, beautiful and ugly, alive and dead like vegetation and insects.
Now we're not sure how much we identify ourselves here at Single Serve Coffee with insects, but definitely coffee or espresso cups.

Crafted in Italy for illy, these stunningly chic, eight-ounce crystal glasses were created especially for hot and iced espresso drinks. We think a few double shots or perhaps even a cup or two of Heifer Hope Blend might look pretty fine in these glasses.

We like the more feminine styling of the Metro Mug and it comes in pink, silver, and baby blue. Designed by Swiss company Sigg, the Metro Mug is designed for enjoying coffee or a tall latte on-the-go. Made from high-grade steel, the double-walled vacuum insulated mug keeps your coffee hot for up to 6 hours, or your iced drinks cold for up to 10 hours.

Okay - so maybe you can't travel through time with this coffee mug, but we're pretty sure you'll be able to be on time. As far as we know, this is the only dishwasher safe time telling mug. Height is 7-1/4" h; Opening is 3-1/4" d., so we know it will fit the Keurig, Bunn My Cafe, and other single serve coffee machines. If you're mug is running a little fast, you can unscrew the water resistant plastic cap and pull out the clock to adjust your coffee time.

Sure it doesn't use coffee pods, but it does make 15 ounces of hot coffee with the coffee grounds of your choice. The Black & Decker DCM18S Brew 'n Go Personal Coffeemaker with Travel Mug claims to be great for for commuters, office professionals, and one-coffee-drinker household. The travel mug is tapered to a 2-1/2-inch-diameter bottom, so it fits most vehicle cup holders. The mug, filter, filter basket, and mug lid are dishwasher-safe, and the coffeemaker can also be used to heat water for tea, hot chocolate, and instant foods like oatmeal and soup.

We love our Bodum Pavina Double-Wall Thermo Glasses and we're now thinking about getting another set from Bodum to have here at Single Serve Coffee for our reviews. We like the hand feel on these Assam coffee mugs and also the double wall - every time we have people over for a little coffee talk they're always impressed.
And if you want to geek out, these mugs are now the glass of choice for drinking any beverage on SciFi's Battlestar Galactica. We knew we were cutting edge around here but "in the future cutting edge"? Who knew?

We think we need a littlw "WHIRL" in our single serve coffee. Hong Kong's Gadget Store Brando just put on sale the ultimate coffee cup to get your morning "WHIRL" started! The Whirl Wind Cup stirs your coffee automatically by pushing a button.
Who really needs to stir your cup of single serve coffee using - what? A spoon? Coffee stirrer? Not for the staff at Single Serve Coffee.com - we're joining the future of stirring. The Whirl Wind Cup is powered by 2 AAA batteries and can also be used as a small stirring machine. The Whirl Wind Cup sells for $22 on Brando and Brando also has a video of the cup in action on the product page.

We've been searching for something like this for an upcoming birthday for a coffee drinker we know who likes to go and sit outdoors (we know - outdoors!) and have coffee while they paint. Currently they use a rather old Thermos brand to keep their coffee hot from their Keurig B60 after putting two travel mug sized Sumatran Extra Bold into it. We're thinking this gem from Bodum will compliment both the activity and perhaps even keep the coffee a bit warmer, and face it - it's very stylish and a bit fun.
Originally designed in 1983, the lipstick carafe was a runaway success. Today, it's been re-engineered for the 60th anniversary, a tribute to Danish design. Bodum's lipstick travel carafe is designed with a vacuum sealed, double-walled stainless steel that keeps beverages hot for up to six hours. Durably made, it's virtually unbreakable. The stainless steel body insulates up to 34-ounces of your favorite beverage. The flow valve is an easy-to-operate push button that helps keep the heat in even during the pouring process. The lipstick shape directs the liquid in an even flow while the cup acts as a lid.

We think we'll chalk the Fresh Brew Highwave Coffee Mug Brewer up to - we'll wait and see. The new and very Melitta pour over coffee system uses paper or cotton filters to make a single cup of coffee.
We can't really see this being very innovative but perhaps it's a bit better than just setting the rig right on top. Has anyone used a cotton coffee filter?
A special thanks to Jenn for sending this in.
