Fuel Cell Beverage Heater Keeps Your Single Serve Coffee Hot

fuelcellbevheater%20copy.JPG

We like our single serve coffee hot, and if it starts to slip below a certain level of hotness, we often resort to horrible measures like the microwave or just brewing another cup (okay not so horrible). In the future it looks like we'll all benefit from this little device that hangs on the side of your coffee cup and keeps your beverage hot. The Portable Beverage Heater is a molded plastic, single-use device that can be clipped to the side of a mug. It creates heat from solid and organic body form using fuel cell and its thermographic ink changes color to indicate when the beverage is hot.

So far this new coffee mug heater is just a concept from designer Seungheon Lee, but one can hope that in the future this device gets produced to keep all of our coffee a little hotter.

Senseo Presso Espresso Coffee Pods and Holder Arrive for Review

Img 4331

We just received our Senseo Espresso Starter box from Germany. Yep - this is only available in Europe and that's a bummer, but if you can get one (try ebay), you can make Espresso with your Senseo coffee maker. This kit will only work in your Senseo Standard editions.

From the site:

Enjoy type Espresso with Senseo® It a small cup of strong, qualitatively high-quality coffee with fine Crema - and in the hand turning! But Douwe Egberts and Philips developed a completely new technology - consisting of the special Senseo® type Espresso Pads and the special Senseo® type Espresso PAD owner. Simply strongly.

Smart Lid Protects Idiots Against Hot Coffee

Smart-Lid

This is a great idea for people who just can't seem to remember that coffee is REALLY HOT - make the the lid of your single serve coffee grow a bit more red if the coffee is really hot and then make it a nice maroon if it's cooler. Seems like a no brainer and something that McDonald's and other restaurants should look into for those hot coffee - sue the restaurant type of customer.

Review: Java Wand - The Single Serve Coffee French Press Glass Straw

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews Java Wand

We've spent over two weeks with the Java Wand. What is a Java Wand? For us, it's basically a mini-french press on the end of a large glass straw. You can take your Java Wand just about anywhere, as it comes with a travel case that holds the want and 2 tablespoons of coffee. We didn't travel that far with our Java Wand, but we did have some really amazing coffee using it.

The Java Wand is also not a single serve coffee maker per se, but it is a very nice alternative to making a cup of single serve coffee from a machine. The Java Wand is also very transformational in how it makes you sit back and relax a bit more with your coffee. So as you can see - we do like the Java Wand...but do we like the entire experience of drinking hot coffee through a glass straw?

Cream and Sugar In One Coffee Gadget

Newtonset

Want to put your milk and sugar into one container instead of two? The Newton milk and sugar set from Finnish company Tonfisk Design allows you to put the sugar and cream in the same container, so you don't have to fiddle with multiple containers when you're fixing your coffee. The Newton always keeps the sugar bowl component level, as the milk container is tilted to pour out the cream. We're not sure how well the Newton will work with granulated sugar, or if this is a sugar cube-only device. We'd be willing to try out some cubes just to see the look on someone's face at a dinner party when they ask for cream or a little sugar.

Java Wand - The Single Serve Coffee French Press Glass Straw

Java Wand

We've just received the Java Wand to review here at Single Serve Coffee. Having read endlessly about it, and with a little more time on our hands we've decided to try out this interesting single serve coffee straw. What is a Java Wand?

The Java Wand™ is a mini French Press filter attached to a hand crafted glass straw that brews and filters coffee, tea leaves, herbs, and infusions in the convenience of an ordinary cup. The Java Wand is packaged in a lightweight, indestructible carry case that contains a special compartment to transport your favorite coffee or tea.

We've also received a bunch of different ground coffee from Justin at CoffeeGiant.com to try with our Java Wand, since we really try and stick to only coffee pods, k cups, t discs, and the like. We'll give you our impressions and review very soon. But just from using the Java Wand this morning, it's an interesting and one could say - magical coffee experience.

A Coffee Cup “Rim Roller”

Post-Rimroller

We don't have Tim Horton's here in Boston (Tim Horton's is a coffee and donut shop and they have some soups), but we do have them where we grew up in Northern Maine. It seems each year they have a roll up the Rim to Win contest, which means millions of people need to roll up that coffee rim to see if they won a prize. In what can only be called the most single use single serve coffee gadget we've ever seen - we give you the Rim Roller.

So, if you're too lazy to roll that rim with your fingers or with a little bite and roll in the mouth, we suggest you get one for the upcoming Roll the Rim to Win season.

Grindmaster Coffee Pod Waste Bin

Pod Bin 92837-1

We are big fans of the countertop trash can, and use one every day for K Cups, Coffee Pods, and espresso pods. It looks like Grindmaster has come up with a rather large Waste Bin for Coffee Pod Brewers. We don't think you'll need such a large waste bin, but you may want one to match your OPOD or GPOD coffee pod brewer.

Musical Coffee Cup: Single Serve Coffee Meets iPod

Mp3Cup

Tired of that old desktop coffee cup, then get the new Musical Coffee Cup. The white ceramic mug holds an MP3 player and has a built-in speaker for you to listen to any tune you want while drinking your coffee from your old boring mug.

Insert the mini plug into an MP3 player's earphone jack to serve up perhaps a little Billy Holiday, or for us The Strokes might capture our morning need to drive the caffeine forward into the day. The MP3 player provides the power source, so no additional batteries are needed. The only real bummer? The Musical Coffee Cup cannot be used for drinking.
