New Melitta One:One Microwaveable Coffee Pod Mug Brewer

P569P568Now we're talking. Everyone here at Single Serve Coffee was wondering when someone would figure you might be able to brew up a single serve cup of coffee using a single mug. It looks like Melitta has figured it out with their new Melitta One:One Microwaveable Coffee Pod Mug Brewer. The mugs come in both red and blue and will make coffee, espresso (can it really make espresso?), and tea by inserting a pod into the mug and microwaving for 2-3 minutes. The mug comes with 18 Melitta Javapods when you order it from Melitta online.

We'll be tracking down some of these mugs and expect a full review soon.

Burn Recycled Coffee Grounds in Your Fireplace with Java Logs

1342Xlarge Grjavalog Logo We can't think of a better way to spend the evening than a great cup of single serve coffee and throwing another Java Log on the fire. Made of recycled coffee grounds and declared one of the “Coolest Inventions of the Year” by Time Magazine. We have been seeing these quite a bit and just had to share the Java Log with our Single Serve Coffee readers.

The Java-Log is the world’s first and only fire-log made from recycled coffee grounds. Throw a Java-Log into the fire place and then sit back, relax, and enjoy up to 3 hours of long lasting beautiful flames that emit more heat, a slightly sweet aroma but no coffee aroma, no chemical smell, and less carbon dioxide than traditional fires.

  • Comes in a Case of 6 Logs.
  • Better/Brighter Flames: More natural flame throughout the burning cycle.
  • Better Scent: No chemical scent as with manufactured logs and a mild sweet aroma.
  • Better for the Chimney: Less than 50% soot build-up than other manufactured logs.
  • Better for the Environment: Less 14% C02 emission than other manufactured logs.
  • More for the Environment: Reusing coffee grounds reduces waste in landfills.
  • Easy to Light: One match will do by lighting the packaging.
  • Burns-up to 3 Hrs: The same amount of time as other manufactured logs

A Little Nip for Your Single Serve Coffee?

Starbuck-Jim-Beam-Liquer-742892We've been having a little nip or two with our single serve coffee since February of this year with our Starbucks Coffee Liqueur. We like the strong coffee flavor it adds but sometimes would like something a little creamier. Starbucks is now making a Cream Liqueur version we will have to pick up for just this desire. I can imagine making a nice cup of hazelnut creme from Green Mountain and putting a little Starbucks Cream Liqueur in for the perfect hot coffee drink.

New from Starbucks is "Starbucks Cream Liqueur", containing spirits from Jim Beam. Described as "an artful blend of delicious cream, premium spirits and a hint of Starbucks", the new offering comes after the success of Starbucks Coffee Liqueur last February. It will be available at restaurants, bars and retail outlets where premium distilled spirits are sold. $22.99 for a 750ml bottle.

MyPod Refillable Coffee Holder for Senseo

Thumb-Mypod1Another day and another gadget to put regular coffee in your single serve coffee brewer. We reviewed the Cafe Filter or Ecopad as it's now called so long ago and rarely if ever use it, but the MyPod might work a bit better. Amy Maxwell wrote in about the MyPod refillable coffee holder for Senseo and we think as long as it doesn't plug up and cause a pressure explosion - it could be worth trying out for 10 bucks.

This morning I brewed a cup of freshly roasted coffee1 in my Senseo. Instead of using a plastic Ecopad, I used a Presto MyPod refillable coffee holder. The MyPod is designed to replace the Phillips Senseo pod holder. It comes with the refillable coffee holder, 100 coffee filters, a compacting cover and a coffee scoop. The EcoPad is a plastic ‘pod’ that you fill with coffee grounds then put in your Senseo two pod holder. The MyPod is different because it replaces the pod holder not the pod.

We haven't been able to find these for sale anywhere online, but Amy has an ebay auction or two up. Let us know if you've tried these or know where we could pick one up for review.

Cocomotion Hot Chocolate & Milk Maker

I love it when hot milk and hot coffee come together. I love it even more when it could be as easy as the Mr. Coffee Cocomotion Hot Chocolate Maker. I picked up this very cool suggestion from Leah in the Single Serve Coffee forums:

"I admit it: I like milk in my coffee. Perhaps some of you do as well? The only quibble I had with my Senseo when I acquired it was that the coffee cooled to almost room temperature once I added milk. What to do? No microwave. On one of my periodic recon missions to Bed, Bath & Beyond to check out the new gadgets, I noticed one that seemed perfect. Mr. Coffee produces an odd, seemingly silly machine - the Cocomotion. Its avowed purpose is to make make hot chocolate: add mix and milk, whir, and presto, hot chocolate. It was around twenty bucks, after using the BB&B coupon. It has now given me over eight months of devoted service. My coffee has nice, hot, frothy milk. Yum. It is not up to coffee bar frothed milk standards for lattes and the like, but it is pretty good and quite fast."

The Cocomotion sounds perfect for Senseo, Home Cafe, Keurig, and other Single Serve Coffee drinkers who don't have a milk frother for their machine. A special thanks to Leah for finding this great coffee gadget.

Review: Brugo Self Cooling Coffee Mug

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsWhen we first heard about the Brugo Self-Cooling Coffee Mug we couldn't have been more excited. Our current crop of travel mugs are a mixture of success and failure. We often burn our mouth or tongue from a very hot cup of single serve coffee in the morning when we aren't patient. Also - we often spill our coffee using the travel mugs we have when we forget to close the top. The Brugo Self-Cooling Coffee Mug has none of these issues.

Brugo Mugs

Topofmug-1The promise of the Brugo Self-Cooling coffee mug is that you don't have to worry about burning your mouth or spilling coffee. The Brugo Self-Cooling Coffee Mug has a "Temperature Control Chamber" at the top which measures out a drinkable portion of coffee. It then cools it down to 150-170°F., which provides optimum taste at a comfortable temperature.

The lid has three settings:

  • "Tip and Cool", which allows you to drink using the Temperature Control Chamber
  • "Sip" which bypasses the Chamber allowing to drink like a normal cup
  • "Lock", which closes the cup.

We started off our experiment picking up a friend at the Airport yesterday morning at 6am. If you're like me, the ability to be rational and make good coffee drinking decisions at 6am is sparse. How did the Brugo Self-Cooling Coffee Mug hold up?

BonJour 7025-42 Caffe Froth Turbo

B00004R8Yo.01. Sclzzzzzzz It looks like a turkey baster but I assure you it's a caffe frother for your single serve coffee! My mom has a little one of these that's not as turbo, but I think if I got hooked (and I'm almost hooked on frothing my milk for coffee), I need a turbo froth.

You can froth just about anything: blend, froth, and whip milk, egg whites, and creams without bringing out the mixing bowl. Just grab the Caffe Froth Turbo's easy to hold body, insert the frothing disc into the liquid, and activate top button. The disc is small enough to fit into most cups and not damage the material.

How do you use it? Move the disc slowly up and down, while being careful not to bring the disc above the liquid. When the mixture is fully frothed, remove the Caffe Froth Turbo.

Coffee Pod Waste Bin Review from Single Serve Coffee

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 0050Living Comforts.com was kind enough to send along a Coffee Pod Waste Bin from Brabantia. This little gem of a Coffee Pod "Trash Can" hits the mark. It's the right size for slamming a wet pod holder on the top of it and having the pod land at the bottom. It's also stainless steel and washes up after you try and fill it to the rim with 10 or so pods. Also - the black top rim can be removed so you can put both in the dishwasher if you really want that deep clean.
