Outpresso - Recycle Nespresso Aluminum Coffee Capsules at Home

outpresso_top_290-186_ssc.jpg

If you have a Nespresso single serve coffee and espresso system we think you'll really like Outpresso. Why? Well the waste from any of the single serve coffee systems can be troubling, and Outpresso allows you to separate the coffee from the aluminum capsule so you can safely recycle the aluminum outer shell. Note - Outpresso only works with the thimble shaped Nespresso capsules, and also does not work with other coffee capsules. There's a great faq at their site that has all the little details, but in reality there aren't that many. As you can see above you simply put the spent Nespresso capsule in the Outpresso and push down separating and pushing out the used coffee.

Ekobrew Reusable Coffee Filter for Keurig Brewers

ekobrew_refillable_k-cup.jpg

Ekobrew is a reusable coffee filter for Keurig brewers. It features a deeper brew chamber which means more water and a more complete coffee extraction. It also has a flat bottom design so it won't tip over when filling, and the no crevice interior means quicker and easier cleaning after use. And probably the best feature is the dual entry point design means no removal of the Keurig filter holster. The seal is made of silicone and heat resistant.

Ekobrew Advantages:

  • No Holster Removal
  • A Greener Alternative
  • Save Money
  • Use any coffee you want in your Keurig brewer

We'll be getting one of these to review soon, and see what our thoughts are on this K-Cup alternative. Video after the jump on Ekobrew and all the features listed above.

Lex, Seth & Carrie the Evil Tea, Sugar & Coffee Storage Jars

LSC_thabto_storage_jars_coffee.jpg

Lex, Seth & Carrie, the evil tea, sugar and coffee storage jars are unique and interesting even if they are a bit round. Designed with an evil glint in their eyes to tell you what’s inside (T: tea, S: sugar & C: coffee), their heads have room to fit the handle of a spoon.

We really like the personality these storage jars give off, and think each morning it might be nice to have a little feisty sugar jar to meet us with sweetness.

Second Generation Coffeeduck PERMANENT Refillable Coffee Filter for the Senseo

41UM8KDpENL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

The Coffeeduck Second Generation ONLY works in the newer Senseo models HD7820-DH7824, HD7830, and HD7841-HD7842, and is a great way to use your own coffee with your Senseo single serve coffee maker. We've used the first generation, and found it to work quite well but there is the clean up when using your own ground coffee. This filter will also work best if you pre-moisten the coffee, and also warm up the filter prior to filling.

  • The Coffeeduck is dishwasher safe and lasts for years
  • Environment-friendly

Kantan Drip Single-Use Coffee Drippers

300-1.jpg

Packed in a 30 count pouch, the Kantan Drip is a single-use dripper-and-filter in one. To use you fold down the sides, open the filter "pouch," add up to 16g of coffee, place it on a cup, and start brewing. The flat-bottomed box-shaped coffee bed promotes even extraction, while the size and orientation promotes an optimal brew time (but don't over steep your coffee). We've never used a coffee dripper ourselves, but Josh in the forums will be receiving some soon, and we'll get his review on the Single Serve Coffee dripper pouch.

The Friis Coffee Vault Keeps Your Coffee and Coffee Pods Fresh

Friis_Blog.jpg

Shoffee.com has a unique offering if you want to keep your coffee pods and ground coffee fresh - the the Friis Coffee Vault. You can keep your whole bean coffee you use with your Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Filter or other reusable filter in the Friss Coffee Vault. We also store our bulk coffee pods in one (thanks to Shoffee.com for sending us a few to use) and they've never been fresher. This is a better alternative to keeping our coffee in our older canisters or the freezer. Thanks again to Shoffee.com for sending this cool coffee vault to use.

Coffee Joulies Endo-Exothermic Phase Change Gold Coffee Beans - Cool Your Coffee

joouulliiiies.jpg

There's a project over a Kickstarter (a new way to fund creative projects) called Coffee Joulies which Single Serve Coffee and other coffee lovers have decided to sponsor (and so can you if you want some Coffee Joulies). Coffee Joulies work with your coffee to achieve two goals. First, they absorb extra thermal energy in your coffee when it’s served too hot, cooling it down to a drinkable temperature three times faster than normal. Next, they release that stored energy back into your coffee keeping it in the right temperature range twice as long.

How do they do this? There is a special non-toxic material sealed within the polished stainless steel coffee bean shell. This material is designed to melt at 140 degrees Fahrenheit, and absorbs a lot of energy as it melts. This is how Joulies cool your coffee down three times faster than normal. Once it reaches this temperature, the special material begins to solidify again, releasing the energy it stored when it melted. This is how Joulies keep your coffee warm twice as long.

We're ready to cool down some of the piping hot coffee we consume, and also to keep our single serve coffee warm longer. We'll be getting 5 of these Coffee Joulies packs, so if you think you're deserving - sound off in the comments and we'll be doing a random drawing from the best comments and send the Coffee Joulies to the lucky commenters later this Summer.

Bunn My Cafe Coffee Pod Carousel - Hold 36 Coffee Pods

carousel_product.jpg

The My Café Pod Carousel is designed for use with the Bunn My Cafe MC Model coffee pod and tea brewer in mind, and this coffee pod carousel will organize and display 36 of your favorite coffee and tea pods with it's spinning action. The stylish chrome construction looks great on any countertop (we have pictures to prove it below.) If you aren't using a carousel with your coffee and tea pods then you're missing out on being able to peruse your coffee and tea collection prior to brewing which for us is the most fun part of our single serve coffee morning.

Medelco One All Universal Single-Cup Replacement Coffee Filters

41qbPO8w9oL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

We recently posted about the One All Reusable Filter System that works very much like the My K-Cup reusable filter. These 2 single-serve reusable coffee filters are for replacing worn-out originals will work in the One All reusable single-serve coffee-filter system or Keurig-brand My K-Cup filter. We also like the idea of having more than one of the inserts that goes into the My K-Cup so you can make multiple cups of single serve coffee without washing out filters after each use right away. They feature a fine mesh made of surgical-grade stainless steel, and both the One All and the My K-Cup is an eco-friendly alternative to disposable filters.

41kdZNmg9GL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Medelco's One All resusable single serve coffee filter system fits all Keurig machines utilizing K-Cup technology. The filter is like the My K-Cup, Solofill, and EZ-Cup filter systems allowing you to use any type of coffee with your single serve coffeemaker. The mesh is made from surgical-grade stainless steel so no peeling or flaking ever. We've never seen this filter before Alan sent in the tip, and we'll see if we can get one to review soon here at Single Serve Coffee.
