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


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:

Brew-Yet Coffee Disc Maker - Make Your Own Coffee Pods


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


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


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.

Single Serve Bistro Mug French Press

Draft 2623 Big

We don't think you can get any more single serve coffee than this tiny little french press that fits inside a clear coffee mug from Bodum. Sure you'll have to use ground coffee and perhaps a little elbow grease, but we expect the results will be worth it.

Fuel Cell Beverage Heater Keeps Your Single Serve Coffee Hot


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.
