Our Canadian correspondent SH recently reported that more and more pods are starting to make an appearance in specialty shops across Canada after the introduction of the original SunCafe pod brewer a year or 2 ago and one of the brands which quickly started popping up was Kienna.
They're a Canadian coffee roasting company based out of Calgary and since it's known that pod brewers aren't as common throughout Canada as they are in USA, the company decided to create their own pod adapter for machines which WERE widely available across Canada... Keurig K-Cup brewers. Dubbed the Kienna Kup, this adapter allows you to use any 8 gram pod (and MAYBE some 10 gram pods) with any Keurig K-Cup brewer. It should be noted that 12 gram pods & ESE espresso pods are NOT compatible with this adapter.

This portable cupholder can attach to any desk, table, or shelf. You can use it to store your drink or small objects. We personally prefer the drink option, and could see this being a pretty amazing accessory at several locations around our house and office. It's also nice that the Drinklip actually holds the cup. How many times have you spilled coffee at work because you've knocked over your coffee cup? We can count at least a dozen times.

A new coffee stirring weapon filled with sugar called Saya is about to hit Japan. Saya is the word for scabbard in Japanese, and the blade is bound with edible rice paper glue that dissolves into the coffee instantly in your coffee cup. The edible rice paper can also be filled with brown sugar or white sugar. Edible rice paper is a staple in Japan for lots of things that need to dissolve into your soup - etc.

If you're tired of burning your tongue on coffee only to have it get cold a few minutes later then the Coffee Joulies are for you. Each polished stainless steel shell is filled with a special phase change material that melts at 140°F. Put them inside your coffee and they absorb heat when it is too hot and release it back into your coffee to keep it at the perfect temperature. The Set of 5 works with up to 20 oz of coffee, one bean per 4 oz.
Our experience using the Coffee Joulies was good. They work as designed to keep your coffee at a cooler but drinkable temperature than scalding hot, but we also had great luck warming up the Coffee Joulies and putting them in a hot cup of coffee to keep things on the warmer side even longer.
Contest Update: Back in March of 2011 we posted about the amazing Coffee Joulies, and we finally got some to give away. Well - we've had them a little while but needed to test them in a cup or two before sending out. We didn't receive 5 packs of them either - we received 1 pack of 5 Coffee Joulies and we'll announce the winner of that 5 pack this week or next.
