The Jura-Capresso Z-Series Cup Warmer provides a heated storage bin for "up to 24 espresso cups or 16 coffee cups" that quickly brings your cup to the optimal brewing temperature ready to receive piping hot coffee. We often heat up our coffee cups using our Instant Hot Water from our In-Sink-Erator Hot Water Dispenser, but we can see the need to have a nice stack of piping hot mugs versus making one hot at a time each morning.
The price at $999 though has to be the most expensive gadget we've seen to heat up mugs. You could purchase the higher end Nespresso Le Cube Automatic Espresso Machine with cup warmers and not even hit a thousand dollars, and it would even make espresso. But if you need the best and have the money to blow, the Jura-Capresso Z-Series Cup Warmer may be for you.

We don't have a ton of whole bean coffee around, but we often have packs of Senseo coffee pods and other coffee pods lying around that could use a little fresh help. All you have to do with the The Ultimate Vacuum-Sealed Cordless Coffee Canister, is clamp down the lever to activate motorized vacuum pump. Keeps more than 1 lb. of coffee beans or nearly 2 bags of Senseo coffee pods perfectly fresh. It runs on 4 AA batteries, not included.

We're pretty sure a hint has been thrown to our sugar mess we leave each morning after brewing our morning cups of single serve coffee. If you didn't know, one of our fellow Blogpire blogs is written by Maya Bazar, and it's called Kitchen Contraptions. Okay Maya - we get the hint. Less mess for you to deal with in the morning if we use the Automatic Sugar Dispenser.
Being married to the proprietor of Single Serve Coffee, we always have sugar all over our counter. This is a cool way to avoid the mess of a sugar bowl. It automatically dispenses sugar at the touch of a button. One touch dispenses half a teaspoon. It holds a quarter pound of sugar.

Readers just keep sending it in and we couldn't ignore it - laser pointers and reusable coffee filters? We love the package deal when buying accessories and gadgets for our single serve coffee maker but often we see them a bit more coffee related. The only good thing we've seen a laser pointer used for is for taunting cats while drinking coffee. Perhaps this was the intent of the combo deal all along?
The Eco Pad will work in your Senseo and perhaps your Home Cafe single serve coffee maker so you can use whatever coffee you like.

We're always on the look out for something to make our single serve coffee experience even better. Last year we ran several articles on products you could get that would bring milk frothing to your single serve coffee and now we're excited to tell you about the new Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother from Nespresso.
The Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother is a new, automatic and simple way of creating light, creamy milk froth. You just pour in some cold or hot, fresh skim milk and press the button. The Aeroccino quietly and quickly produces an milk froth, which you can enjoy in many different coffee recipes including lattes and cappuccinos.
To test the Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother, we used our Nespresso C90 for espresso creation - more in the lungo size. We also tried 1% milk, Skim milk, and 2% milk to see what would happen using the Aeroccino. How did it fair? Does it actually make good frothed milk?

Much like the Eco-Pod Reusable coffee filter for Senseo, the Melitta Padfilter gives you the freedom to use your Senseo (or Senseo pod sized crème machine) with all types of ground coffee in your machine. We like the fact the Melitta Padfilter has a hinge top along with what does in fact look like thicker plastic. We'll be getting one of these very soon and will have a full brew off between the two.
Simply fill the Melitta Padfilter, place it in the 2 pod holder of the Senseo machine and hit the coffee button! The Melitta Padfilters are durable, easily in use and dishwasher safe. Best of all it is made by a coffee company you know and trust, Melitta! The Melitta Padfilter is made better and stronger than the Ecopad or Quickcup. It also uses a patented hinged top that is easy to open, quick to close and you won't lose your pod top like you can with the Ecopad and Quickcup.
Note: the Melitta Padfilter cannot be returned, so make sure you understand what you are buying. It is made to fit the Senseo Coffee machine and may not fit other brands.

We've experienced the Ready Set Joe One-Cup Coffeemaker from Melitta several times over the past year. One on a trip to San Francisco where we had fresh roasted coffee made with it that was nothing short of amazing. The second time was on the side of a mountain camping up in New Hampshire, and more recently we got a present of some fresh roasted coffee and tried it out again. Good results always seemingly follow if you're patient, pour your hot water slowly, and then kick back and relax with the coffee.

Since single serve coffee makers like the Keurig B50 and the Senseo have the ability to use your own coffee, we've been trying to find something that would also eliminate the mess when doing so. It's also going to take a bit of precision to get ground coffee into the reuseable filter for the Keurig or the Senseo. The Zevro coffee dispenser allows precise measurement and dispensation. It stores over one half pound of ground coffee with an airtight seal that ensures maximum freshness and flavor. Your kitchen counters will remain clean and free of coffee grounds when making a perfect cup of single serve coffee.

This is an oldie but a goodie. If you're currently using Senseo Douwe Egberts Dark Roast Coffee Pods or any of their other blends that come packed in bags of pods, getting one of these coffee pod canisters is the way to go.
The Brabantia Stainless Coffee Pod Canister will your coffee pods fresh and ready to go in a snap. Inside the canister there's a convenient inner sleeve that allows you to lift out the coffee pods. We've been using this with our CafePods as well - as they come packed two pods to a sleeve and we often put the extra pod right into the canister.
