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.

We've been using our Ekobrew here and there with our Keurig brewer over the past few weeks, and have to say it works really well (thanks for sending Ekobrew!). There's a variety of these refillable K-Cup products from the My K-Cup from Keurig, to the EZ-Cup, and even the Solo-Fill - and they all work well but this one is easy to use, and we also like the lid design. We think you should check the full range of reusable K-Cups out if you're looking to use ground coffee occasionally with your Keurig brewer, as each one has it's merits.
- The Ekobrew’s patent pending design includes a deep brew chamber, heavy duty hinge, flat bottom design and heat resistant grips for safer removal after use
- Save money by using your favorite coffee and at the same time reduce the impact on the environment. 100% BPA free plastic.
- No need to remove the Keurig filter holster; Simply fill the Ekobrew, place it in your machine and brew normally
- Ekobrew’s unique design provides the very best coffee possible and our smooth interior makes clean up fast and easy.
- Ekobrew is not compatible with the B30, B130, B150 and B155

Keurig sent us over the K-Cup Storage Dispenser two pack which keeps a total of 48 portion packs right on our countertops. You can even showcase which K-Cup is in each bin, and the the generous opening and slanted interior allows for easy filling and selection.
Each dispenser holds 24 portion packs, and we found them to work great in our area right next to the fridge.

The larger glass model or black model will fit full size Keurig brewers.
If you're like us and want as much counter space for your other kitchen needs - having K-Cups lying around on your kitchen counters or even a carousel that holds K-Cups just takes up space. We found this Deluxe Glass Coffee Drawer for Keurig Single Serve Kcups that holds 35 K-Cups, and we're pretty excited. It features a beveled frosted glass shelf that cleans up easily if you spill a little coffee, and the easy glide drawer holds 35 K-Cups. It will fit most Keurig, Breville, Mr. Coffee, and Cusinart Machines.

How many times a week do you carry your favorite single serve coffee beverage only to have it spill all over everywhere. The SpillNot mug holder will save you from spills with the magic of physics and here's how it works:
Continue reading: "SpillNot No-Spill Coffee Mug Holder"
- When you hold a cup of hot beverage, inertia keeps the liquid from moving. But when you walk, you create horizontal force, causing the side of the cup to press against the liquid, which then rises up and over the edge of the cup.
- The flexible loop handle of SpillNot cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the saucer or the cup. As the handle moves horizontally, the saucer and cup swing up slightly in the opposite direction, balancing everything out so the liquid stays in the cup.

Still just a concept, the Steam Mug from designer Young-Suk Kim uses your left over water to humidify your surroundings like a small room or office. We love USB gadgets, and think this one is pretty amazing idea - maybe some steamed coffee anyone to humidify that room or yours?

We're pretty sure if you have a great cup of coffee it should smell great, but you know we are never totally correct in all of our assumptions. So what's the main issue when you're thinking of making a coffee lid smell like great coffee? Trapped aroma. Taste is 95% smell, so you're missing out when it's trapped behind that lid and the hot piping fresh coffee can't grace your nostrils. The Aroma Lid, a new cover that's infused with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee gets rid of this issue. When you take a sip, you smell and taste a wonderful, full-bodied brew. A Hong Kong company hopes to distribute these scented lids in bulk without branding and branded for smaller coffee retailers.

It's true - with all the single serve coffee makers we own, we still enjoy a cup of pour over coffee and continue to look for new ways to have a cup each week. The Sili Coffee Break is the first collapsible filter basket designed exclusively for coffee, and is made of high grade silicone for easy clean up and collapsing.
- Pop up the silicone filter basket and place on top of a coffee mug.
- Then insert a #2 paper coffee filter, fill with one scoop ground coffee or one pre-packaged coffee, and pour 8 ounces of hot water through it.
- Coffee is ready in about 2-3 minutes.
William Bounds sent over one in red for us to try and the results were great. Also, it packs away into a round disc like shape with little muss and fuss all for $15.
