The Nescafé Alarm Cap: Wake Up to a Single Cup of Coffee

Nescafe alarm cap 1

Don’t you just love waking up to the fresh smell of a cup of coffee in the morning? Of course you love waking up to a fresh cup of coffee so Nescafe has made the Nescafé Alarm Cap.

The Nescafe Alarm cap is a ‘soft and natural awakening’ followed by ‘open the cap to enjoy the delicious aroma of NESCAFÉ’. The Alarm Cap is a 3D-printed combination container lid and alarm clock, assembled in California and run on a custom Arduino-based platform.

You attach it to your Nescafé bottle, and the alarm clock will gently wake you up with sounds. Unfortunately, the Nescafé Alarm Caps are very limited, and only 200 press kits are available. We’ll let you know if they plan on making this a production product.

Canadiano - Single Cup Pour Over Wood Coffee Filter

Canadiano Coffee Brewer

If you've ever wondered about making coffee poured through cherry, walnut, or maple woods - Canadiano is for you. Carved out of Cherry, Walnut and Maple wood, the Canadiano is the Canadian pour-over method of brewing coffee. You place the Canadiano on your cup, add two spoons of coffee and pour hot water into the wooden bowl. 2-4 minutes later your coffee is ready. Because the Canadiano is made of wood, overtime the coffee oils of your specific beans and roast will be absorbed into the wood and be a part of your morning coffee experience.

Canadiano Back and sides 1024x445

Each type of wood is matched with different beans and roasts from around the world. The Walnut edition is crafted and designed for use with darker roasts and earthier flavors such as beans from South East Asia. Maple and Cherry is designed for beans with slight citrus hints and nutty taste.

There's also a metal filter to reduce waste and lower your environmental impact by not using paper filters similar to other pour-over techniques.

Full video after the jump and it's got a little profanity in it.

K2v cup shot box

The K2V-Cup allows you to use any K-Cup in a Keurig Vue brewer. The K2V-Cup is a 2 in 1 Coffee reusable Coffee Cup. You can use any K-Cup in your Keurig Vue Machine, and you can use your own coffee in the Keurig Vue by filling the Eco-Fill - a reusable K-Cup which comes with the K2V-Cup. 

We received a K2V-Cup to try out in our Keurig Vue brewer, and it quickly transformed our Vue brewer into a K-Cup powerhouse. We tried a variety of K-Cups and results were always a great cup of coffee every time. We also used the Eco-Fill combined with the K2V-Cup to use our own coffee, and the coffee produced was excellent.

Acaia: The Minimalist Coffee Brewing Scale

Acaia Brewing Scale

Over at Kickstarter we’ve found a great coffee scale called Acaia. Acaia is a simple minimalist coffee brewing scale featuring an LED readout, and a clean design. Why do you need a coffee scale when using a pour over coffee maker? If you want consistency in your cup of pour over coffee you’ll want to weigh the coffee and water to get it right every time. The Acaia scale also works with your iPhone using an app to communicate via Bluetooth about various brewing methods and times.

Sugar Skull Spoon - Halloween Coffee Never Tasted so Spooky

Sugar skull spoon

With Halloween almost upon us it's hard not to pull out a little macabre spoon to make your Halloween coffee a little more spooky. The Sugar Skull Spoon will help you set the tone to each cup of coffee you have this Fall. The shape of the skull embedded into the spoon makes for a raised skull after scooping. It’s £8 ($13) for yours, and if you fund it over at Kickstarter I'm sure they'll get it done even faster.

Is this a Senseo or a Liquid Soap Dispenser?

Senseo or soap dispenser

If you want to know where old single serve coffee makers go when they retire it appears they turn into soap dispensers. We had several readers write in about the Nine Star Automatic Liquid-Soap Dispenser and how much it looks like the Senseo single serve coffee pod brewer. It's like they took the design of the Senseo's back tank and turned the top into a soap pump. Right?
