Keurig Countertop Tower K-Cup Holder - Holds 30 K-Cups

08-accessories-keurig-tower-alt1.jpg

Looking for a great way to showcase all of those K-Cup flavors you have for your Keurig singles serve coffee maker? We have been using the Keurig Tower K-Cup Holder for over a month, and we love it. Instead of reaching into the cupboard for a K-Cup we can load up the tower with as many varieties of K-Cup coffees, teas, and even white or hot chocolate. We've found this to be a much better design than the earlier K-Cup Carousel because the footprint of the tower is much less. The lazy susan design is also really fluid, and the tower can hold up to 30 K-Cups.

Hand-crafted from double-walled glass, the Calf and Half jug holds up to 150ml of milk/cream making it ideal to use when having your cup of single serve coffee or tea. The Calf and Half Jug can be yours for £14.95.

Keurig Milk Frother - Whip Up a Single Serve Coffee K-Cup Latte

frother_hero_ssc.jpg

Up until recently the only other automatic milk frothers were from Nespresso - the Aeroccino and Aeroccino Plus. We love our Aeroccino, but we're also ready to have some more alternatives to milk frothing companions for our single serve coffee. The Keurig Milk Frother is another stand alone frother that you can use with any single serve coffee system, but will make an amazing companion for your Keurig Mini B30, Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and any other Keurig brewer.

How does it work? Just pour in milk, turn it on and the Keurig Milk Frother heats and stirs the milk in under 90 seconds. The addition of the Keurig Milk Frother to your single serve coffee arsenal will give you the ability to take the darker K-Cup roasts, and make some home brewed lattes and cappuccinos. Also you can now buy it online for just $69.95 making it a great gift this holiday season. We'll have a full review of the Keurig Milk Frother soon.

Coffee Cup Recycle Bin - Save That Spent Coffee for Plants

coffee-garbage-3.jpg

Meant to remind you to recycle, this trash bin is perfect for a countertop waste bin to catch those coffee pods and spent K-Cups. You can then take the spent coffee pods and K Cups and dump the coffee out into your garden, house plants, or compost pile. The coffee cup trash bin is 30cm tall and will cost you $20.

Review: Aeroccino Plus Automatic Home Milk Frother from Nespresso

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviewsnespresso.jpg

The Aeroccino Plus is a larger version of the Aeroccino that also allows you to override the heating function if you wish to froth milk without heating. The cost for the Aeroccino Plus is $129 versus $99 on the smaller Aeroccino (read our review of the earlier Aeroccino here). The reason any single serve coffee drinker would want to get an Aeroccino is the need for frothed milk for those latte and capuccino drinks you might want to make at home to save a few dollars. We used the Aeroccino Plus in this review with the new Essenza Touch and our Nespresso Essenza C100T.

IMG_7090.jpg

The Aeroccino won't make the same frothed milk as a high end espresso machine, but it will make a very thick-rich frothed cup of hot or cold milk. The Aeroccino Plus is also larger than the earlier version, and this allows you to make enough milk for 2+ drinks depending on what your making.

How does it work? To produce warm frothed milk, heating the milk to temperatures between 140-149°F/60-65°C, quickly press the button once. To override the heating function, press the button for two full seconds.

EZ Fill Liquid Level Alarm - Pour Your Coffee in the Dark

ujiipuj.jpg

The EZ Fill Liquid Indicator is a small bright red device that buzzes to indicate a liquid has reached about 1 inch from the top of a your single serve coffee cup, or whatever container your choose to use it on. Meant to help the visually impaired, we think it would also work perfectly for non-automatic shut off Nespresso, and espresso systems. It uses three 1.5 volt LR44 batteries (included).

You can create a coaster in any shape you want with these pixels made of paper. Each coaster is also completely different, and the perforations allow you to tear off at the individual pixel level, making for a fun cup of coffee that is unique every time.

iRoast 2 - Roast Your Own Coffee at Home

We know we've had the i-Roast 2 for the entire summer, and yes we've been using it. We've made quite a few batches of our own coffee, and we've really enjoyed the smell of fresh brewed beans. Our favorite method is to make a small micro batch, and then brew it up that day or early the next morning using our Breville Keurig single serve coffee maker, and the My K Cup Resuseable filter. Here's a video of a recent batch of columbian coffee baking in the iRoast 2. We'll have a full review soon.

Nespresso Aeroccino Plus - Froth Hot or Cold Milk Quickly

nespresso_aeroccino_red.jpg
The Aeroccino Plus froths hot and cold milk.

We love our little Aeroccino (review), and paired with our Nespresso C100T Essenza (review) - it's a tough combo to beat for lattes and cappuccinos. We're excited that Nespresso is improving the Aeroccino with a new larger version of its Aeroccino coffee accessory: the Aeroccino Plus. Besides offering hot milk froth, the new Aeroccino Plus now offers coffee lovers the option to also make cold milk froth. That's right folks - let's froth some cold milk!

How does it work? To produce warm frothed milk, heating the milk to temperatures between 140-149°F/60-65°C, quickly press the button once. To override the heating function, press the button for two full seconds.

The Aeroccino Plus will be available in September as part of a bundle package with the Nespresso Le Cube machine for $429 or the Nespresso D290 for $549 in leading department stores, as well as gourmet kitchen and specialty stores, throughout the United States and Canada. Additionally, the Aeroccino Plus will be sold exclusively as a stand-alone unit for $129 in Nespresso boutiques, including Nespresso’s U.S. flagship boutique at 761 Madison Avenue in New York City, as well as boutiques in Bloomingdale’s in SoHo (New York), Chevy Chase, Md., Costa Mesa, Calif., and Chicago, the Bay in Toronto and Vancouver, and through the Nespresso Club.
