Review: Brew-Yet Coffee Disc Maker - Make Coffee Pods from Traditional Coffee Filters

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviewsbox_image.gif

The Brew-Yet Coffee Disc Maker allows you to make your own coffee pods at home, instead of buying prepackage coffee pods, to brew your favorite coffee or blend of coffees. How does it work? You simply use coffee filters that you would normally use in a drip coffee maker, and with the Brew-Yet gadget, fold up the coffee into coffee pods.

  • Use your own favorite coffee or blends of coffee without having to be restricted to the prepackaged coffee pod varieties
  • Easy clean up - no holder to clean coffee grinds out of - after brewing your favorite blend - just dispose of the Coffee Disc like you do your coffee pods
  • Economical - Coffee Discs are a fraction of the cost of coffee pods

Brew-Yet coffee pod making kit.

How easy is it to use? Does it work in a variety of single serve coffee machines? How does it compare to other do it yourself coffee pod makers?

Creampad - Make Cappuccinnos with Coffee Pods and Milk Video

758c_1.JPG

Just last week we featured the Creampad - a disk that allows you to add milk and then place a coffee pod on top to create a cappuccino using your single serve coffee pod brewer. We have had several readers write in with details of a video showing how the Cream pad works from YouTube. A special thanks to Bob and Mark for sending this in. Given the video we bet the Creampad will work in your your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, simplehuman, Krups 1010 , GPOD, Home Cafe, Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic, Melitta MES5B Javapod, and other single serve coffee pod makers. We do think the original Senseo though will be your best bet.

Review: K Cup Injector for Keurig Brewers - Reuse Your K Cups

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsIMG_5669.jpg
The Handmade K Cup Injector and reused K Cup.

The K Cup Injector allows you to reuse your spent K Cups by refilling them with ground coffee, and then using the K Cup Injector top to seal the K Cup make a cup of single serve coffee. We've been testing out this home-made device for the last week purchased on Ebay, and it works surprisingly well. "Well" however means - a bit of a mess when making a cup of single serve coffee, because with each use you have to clean out coffee grounds, rinse the spent K Cup, and also wash the K Cup Injector.

Now we understand mess for the sake of being a little more eco-friendly, and the K Cup injector does hit the spot. In a way, it's very much like the My K Cup Reusable Coffee Filter, allowing you to just use ground coffee, and now throw out plastic K Cup after plastic K Cup. But there is a price, as we said mess and also cross-contamination of the coffee from the previous cup. Unlike the My K Cup Reusable Coffee Filter, you'll be using the same paper filter with the K Cup, and you'll also have to match the extra-bold K Cup filter or the regular K Cup filter with the grind you want - etc.

CreamPad - Make a Cappuccinno Using Coffee Pods

creampad-middengroot2.jpg

We've just found this rather interesting device called the Creampad that supposedly can be used in any coffee pod machine to make a cappuccino. How do you make a cappuccino using coffee pods? You start by pouring non-fat milk in the disc, putting a coffee pod of your choice on the Creampad, and starting the single serve coffee pod maker. We really have no idea if this thing works, and in what single serve coffee machines it does work, or where to get it. If you have one or know where to get one - let us know by sounding off in the comments.

K-Cup Injector Lid - Reuse Old K Cups to Make Coffee

747a_1.JPG

The K-Cup Injector is the latest invention we've found for your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers. Currently only available on Ebay, the K-Cup Injector lid allows you to fill your used K-cup with your favorite grind and then inject it with water during the brewing process. The idea behind this gadget is the redirection of the water flow to improve the extraction from your K-Cups. The K-Cup Injector sprays the water in 5 different directions to improve the coffee extraction process.

We have one of these on order to try, and it will hopefully arrive soon so we can see if it works well. We're not sure about re-using our K Cups over and over, but the eco-friendly idea is one of the better ones we've seen here at Single Serve Coffee.

From the eBay auction on the K-Cup Injector Lid:

box_image.gif

We've just received the Brew-Yet Coffee Disc Maker here at Single Serve Coffee. We prefer to call our coffee discs - coffee pods, but calling them discs or pods will work. The Brew-Yet is a Coffee Disc Maker that allows you to make your own Coffee Discs at home, instead of buying prepackage coffee pods, to brew your favorite coffee or blend of coffees. How does it work? You simply use coffee filters that you would normally use in a drip coffee maker, and with the Brew-Yet gadget, fold up the coffee into coffee pods.

  • Use your own favorite coffee or blends of coffee without having to be restricted to the prepackaged coffee pod varieties
  • Easy clean up - no holder to clean coffee grinds out of - after brewing your favorite blend - just dispose of the Coffee Disc like you do your coffee pods
  • Economical - Coffee Discs are a fraction of the cost of coffee pods

We'll have a full review soon, after we try the coffee pods/discs in a variety of single serve coffee pod brewers. The Brew-Yet should work with your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, simplehuman, Krups 1010 , GPOD, Home Cafe, Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic, Melitta MES5B Javapod, and other single serve coffee pod makers.

Single Serve Coffee iPod Speaker Mug

musicmug1.jpg

It's really not a coffee mug, but it is an interesting way to connect your iPod in a single serve coffee speaker. Yes - you read that right - a single serve coffee speaker. There's only one speaker in this coffee mug. The coffee looking mug is actually a pure white cup with a tiny stereo input you connect to your iPod. You can pick yours up now for just 3,990 yen ($18.98) here.

Coffee Machine Can Taste the Difference Between Good and Bad Coffee

coffeetaster1.jpg

Sometimes we want the future to arrive, and this is one of the machines of the future we'd like to have built into every single serve coffee maker. This machine can taste the quality in your cup of espresso, and can identify coffee types nearly as accurately as a panel of trained espresso tasters.

The machine analyzes the gas espresso gives off when created, translating combinations of ions into descriptions like "roasted, flowery, woody, toffee and acidity." It was created by chemical engineers at Nestle in Switzerland, and will be used as a quality control device in the coffee industry, and perhaps even now is being used for Nespresso coffees.

Coffeeduck Permanent Refillable Filter for the Orginal Senseo

CoffeeDuck? The name does not inspire confidence, but if you're looking to use your own ground coffee with your Senseo, this duck may do the trick. But buyer beware, the CoffeeDuck does not work with the Senseo Supreme or Senseo Deluxe, it only works with the original Senseo.

The CoffeeDuck will allow you to use whatever coffee you like, and can also be used with one or two regular paper coffee pods, so if you ever lose your Senseo pod holders, you can still make pod coffee. For best results, they recommend using a fine grind when using ground coffee with the CoffeeDuck.

We'll have to order the "duck" and see how good of a job it does.

Ceramic Coffee Cup Warmer for Steam Radiators

We often wonder what we could be doing with our steam radiators when it comes to coffee and snacks. It looks like this very interesting concept of a ceramic plate that sits on a steam radiator makes it easy to keep your coffee hot and your snacks warm. The radiator coffee warmer isn't available yet, but something similar should be easy enough to cook up for yourself should you live in a house or building that has steam radiators.
