Please welcome the McDLT of coffee cup warmers - it's got both the hot side and cool side of coffee covered. If you sit in traffic or just have a long commute, the Plug-In Commuter's Warming/Cooling Mug can keep a can of soda cold at 40F, and it can keep a cup of coffee 140 F hot. The device fits in to a cup holder and gets its power by plugging in to the lighter and retails for $24.98.
We're not sure how this can help us on the single serve coffee front (as we often pack up our coffee in a travel mug), but if you must have coffee on the road from the likes of Starbucks or others, this might be a great gadget to have.

Looking for a way to organize all those Tassimo T Discs you've got on your kitchen countertops? Look no further than the Fantazio Tassimo Disc dispenser for Tassimo. The dispenser comes fully assembled ready for use and takes up to four varieties of T Discs. The labels will show through the dispenser front and you can even get the dispenser in a variety of colors. This is only available in the UK but they do ship to the US. Thanks to SMBB for sending this in.

If you've received a Keurig single serve brewer for a holiday gift, you might not know about the Keurig My K-Cup Reuseable Coffee Filter. It allows you to put any ground coffee you want through your Keurig brewer and it works great. We recommend getting a couple of them if you want to use ground coffee on a more regular basis, as it saves washing up the My K-CUp filter after each use. So check out the My K-Cup Reuseable filter and if you need more info - you can read our full review here.
The Keurig My K-Cup reuseable coffee filter will work in the Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B50, Keurig B-60 Special Edition, and Keurig B70 brewers.

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.
