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.

Medelco RK101 Universal Single Cup Coffee Filter System for Keurig Brewers

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.

ne-cap-capsules-compatibles-nespresso.jpg

There's a product out in France called Ne-Cap that make the impossible possible - you can make your own Nespresso capsules and use any coffee you want.

The capsule is used in 4 easy steps...

  1. Fill capsule with your preferred espresso coffee or tea leaves
  2. Remove the protective label on the adhesive seal
  3. Stick on the foil label
  4. Pop in any Nespresso machine and enjoy.

According to the site, the cost per capsule is 0.10 Euros (Approx. 0.14 cents USD) and each capsule can hold about 5 grams of coffee. No word on how many capsules are in a box but the site says they're available at "fine coffee retailers across France" and online at various French coffee product sites.

There are even accessories for the Ne-cap as well...

Perfect Pod and EZ-Cup Now at Bed Bath and Beyond


41PplDan8BL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

We've had several readers write in that Perfect Pod (allows you to create your own coffee pods), and EZ-Cup (allows you to use any coffee you want in a Keurig brewer combined with using the EZ-Cup filter papers) are now at Bed Bath & Beyond. We've had some readers write in from the West Coast and some from the East Coast so it seems the product will be widely available at most BB&Beyond stores.

ezcupfilters.jpgThe EZ-Cup Filters are used in the EZ-Cup to hold the coffee of your choice.

Please read our full reviews of the Perfect Pod and EZ-Cup to get a better idea of how these products work.

K-Cup Mini 18-cup Carousel - Countertop K-Cup Storage

51AGiMgRzLL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

We really like this space saving two-tier carousel that holds up to 18 Keurig K-Cups. It features a black powder-coat finish, and looks great on any counter-top. The Lazy-Susan style base rotates for easy access of your favorite K-Cup coffees, and no the K-cups are not included but you can add your own in minutes.

USB Single Serve Coffee-Cup Warmer Could Be Hacked

340x_usb-warmer-alu.jpg

Gizmodo has a really interesting take on whether the devices plugged into your computer aren't perfect for hackers that switch them out locally. We're pretty sure this would be difficult to do with our precious USB Coffee-Cup warmer (we know the coffee stains on it intimately), but you never know. What's the problem? The problem stems from a shortcoming in the way the Universal Serial Bus (USB) works. This allows almost all USB-connected devices, such as mice and printers, to be turned into tools for data theft, says a team that has exploited the flaw.
