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.

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.

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.

We love it when some Frankenstein hardware creator combines a USB Cup Warmer with a 4 Port USB 2.0 hub and calls it HUBBACINO! You can even order this rather striking USB cup warmer with your own custom logo. If you happen to be an internet mogul - you can even order an entire case of the hubs to giveaway to your employees.

We're always looking for a good milk frothing option when using our Bunn My Cafe or other single serve coffee brewer. The Bodum Schiuma battery-operated milk frother is a good way to get your froth on. The lightweight frother with flexible steel wand and ergonomic plastic handle can whip up a healthy lather on any type of milk and comes with a heat-resistant borosilicate glass beaker to make you feel like you're a one cup coffee chemist.

Maybe one of the most asked questions we get here at Single Serve Coffee: What types of upgrades can I get for my Senseo single serve coffee pod brewer? Well, one of the best is the extra large water tank for Senseo. It holds nearly twice as much water as the standard tank at 40 oz and has an easy grip contour plus an extra wide opening to make filling the tank easier. We have one and we think you will love not having to make 10 trips a week to the faucet to fil your Senseo water tank and it's only $20 bucks. Only for use with HD7810 Senseo models; not compatible with other coffeemakers, so don't start thinking this will work on your Melitta One:One.

If there was one thing we need in the morning that would help wake us up perfectly and without fuss? How about being wakened by the smell of freshly cooked bacon and the Keurig B70 ready to go with a fresh cup of single serve coffee. The bacon alarm clock wakes you up with the smell and sizzle of cooking bacon that you insert the night before. We simply need this contraption now, and perhaps even built into our fantasy bedside single serve coffee and bacon maker.

it's always a good thing to cheer yourself up with a little coffee each and every morning. You can now add a bit of nostalgia to your room with the Cheer Up Coffee Clock. This 8" round clock has a 2" deep tin rusted base and takes one AA battery (not included). Priced at $39.50, it's quite a steal.

The Senseo Store now carries the Brabantia Stainless Steel Coffee Pod Canister with a Senseo logo. We love our coffee pod canisters and first picked them up at Amazon.com sans the logo. But if you need to keep the Senseo branding full and strong in your kitchen, the Senseo Coffee Pod canisters will keep things air tight and your single serve coffee pods fresh. The Senseo Coffee Pod Canisters hold up to 18 coffee pods and cost the same as their unbranded counterparts at just $11.95 a canister.

Here's an interesting concept - heat the spoon and not the mug to keep your single serve coffee warm. We can see this being a great addition to our single serve coffee arsenal when and if it ever ships. So far the Smart Beverage Coffee Heater is just a concept, and a disposable one at that. We'd take this in a rechargeable form any day.
Smart Beverage Heater solves a common problem for coffee drinkers: reheating the cup with available methods often heats the mug and not the liquid. Smart Beverage Heater is a molded plastic, single-use device that can be clipped to the side of a mug. It employs flameless heat technology and its thermographic ink changes color to indicate when the beverage is hot.
