Solofill Cup Refillable Single Serve Coffee Filter for Keurig Brewers Arrives for Review

solofill_packaging.jpg

The Solofill Cup Refillable Single Serve Coffee Filter for Keurig Brewers has arrived for review. The Solofill Cup Refillable Single Serve Coffee Filter for Keurig Brewers is like the My K-Cup reusable filter that allows you to use your own coffee instead of using just K-Cups.

Using the Solofill is really easy, because unlike the My K-Cup reusable coffee filter, you do not have to take out the brew sleeve in your Keurig brewer. Like the K-Cup the Solofill cup fits in the same slot as the K-Cup and has an easy to fill flip top.

We've been using the Solofill over the past week and a half (thanks to Solofill for sending us a few cups for testing), and have to say prior to a full review - the Solofill is easy to use and makes a great cup of coffee. We'll have our full review soon.

Key Features of the Solofill Cup:

  • No need to remove or swap out the filter holder.
  • No filter to replace!
  • Reusable – Environmentally friendly.
  • Save money while reducing our environmental impact!
  • Use your own favorite gourmet coffee.
  • Easy to use – Simple 2 steps process.
  • Innovative Octaflo-Plus hot water distribution system for a superior tasting cup of gourmet coffee.
  • Easy clean up – Unique one piece design with integrated hinged lid and stainless steel micro mesh filter for easy clean-up.

Kings Supermarket based in New Jersey is now carrying EZ-Cups and EZ-Cup Filters

DSCN0019.jpg

We've gotten word that King's Supermarkets in New Jersey are now carrying the EZ-Cup and EZ-Cup filters that work in your Keurig single serve coffee maker. What is the EZ-Cup? It is a filter sleeve and filter paper that allows you to use whatever coffee you want in your Keurig single serve coffee maker.

EZ-Cup is different from the My K-Cup reuseable K-Cup because you don't have to wash out a filter basket, and you don't have to take out the K-Cup insert. The EZ-Cup goes in the same spot as a regular K-Cup so no removal of the brew sleeve like the My K-Cup. After you're done filling the EZ-Cup and brewing, you simple open the top and pop out the spent filter basket made of paper.

The EZ-Cup will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and other Keurig K Cup brewers.

See Through Half-Pint Glass Creamer

m_80561.jpg

Fashioned into a design that evokes the half-pint milk carton, this molded clear-glass creamer puts a spin on an everyday item. Made of borosilicate glass, the creamer is dishwasher- and microwave-safe. We think this would be the talk of any coffee filled party.

Susta - All Natural ProBiotic Sweetener

susta.jpg

We're always on the lookout for something a bit more natural in the sugar category than using artificial sweeteners in our single serve coffee just to save a few calories. We were surprised when we were sent from Susta an all natural sweetener with just 5 calories per package, and it has other benefits like pro-biotics (for better digestion), and vitamin C added as well.

All natural? We did our research and made a few calls and it's legit. The pro-biotic part comes from the soluble fiber, and it's also used in their own line of yogurt widely available.

So how does it taste in your single serve coffee? We tried a variety of different flavors over the week, and found the flavored coffees and deeper richer note coffees responded well to Susta. It's not as sweet as say Splenda, but it has a very rich mixed sweetness to it. We think you should check it out, and see for yourself what Susta has to offer.

Magic Milk Jug Tells You When Milk is Sour

cravendale-magic-milk-jug-gadget-0.jpg

Here's a good idea - a milk jug that tells you, "Hey - don't drink this milk it's sour." We often don't have that problem here at Single Serve Coffee, as we always seem to run out of all the types of milk we want to froth or put in our coffee, but lots of people do have sour milk issues. According to the company Cravendale in the UK, a unique PH sensor is built in to the base of the jug which measures the PH acidity of the jug’s contents and updates the milk drinker via an LCD screen message.

That screen then reads “Fresh” or “Sour” offering a reliable analysis of the milk’s drinkability. At this time it's just a concept, but it's a great concept we'd like to see in the future.

Cool Beans Ice Cube Coffee Tray - Make Coffee Ice

cool-beans.jpg

Just add some coffee into these coffee bean ice molds, and then add that into your java for an unwatered down ultimate iced coffee. Made from super-strong, dishwasher-safe pure silicone, the Cool Beans Ice Cube Coffee Tray measures 8″ long and 4.5″ wide. We're thinking for $7.99 this may make the Summer iced coffee season even better.

Coffee Quotes App for iPhone and iPod Touch

iphonecoffeequote.jpg

Looking for some memorable quotes for coffee talk? There's an app for that. The Coffee Quotes App includes quotes by famous politicians, celebrities, random people and anonymous coffee lovers. The developer even has one of their own quotes , "Behind every successful iPhone developer is a substantial amount of coffee."

We downloaded this app for iPhone and have to say - it's neat. You simply push to see the next quote, and the quotes are solid. The developer promises to add more coffee quotes in the future, and the app is only $.99.

Review: EZ-Cup for Keurig Single-Cup Machines - Make Your Own K-Cups and Use Your Own Coffee

Review Single Serve Coffeeezcupsystem.jpg

The EZ-Cup and EZ-Cup Filters allow you to make refillable K-Cups with a filter sleeve that fits inside the EZ-Cup, and then fits into the brewing slot in your Keurig Brewer. Unlike the Perfect Pod Holster which allows you to use coffee pods in your Keurig brewer, the EZ-Cup allows you to use any ground coffee in your Keurig Brewer.

IMG_8331.jpg
The EZ-Cup filter paper.

Update: Many readers have written in asking if you could use your Perfect Pod Holster with the filters. We have tried this and the spring inside the two different products is well - different. The Perfect Pod Holster has a very strong longer spring and the EZ-Cups is shorter to make room for the filter sleeve. We recommend buying the EZ-Cup and not trying to make the Perfect Pod Holster work. We did not get good results if we used the Perfect Pod Holster - it's for coffee pods not for use with the new EZ-Cup filter sleeve.

It's different from the My K-Cup reuseable K-Cup because you don't have to wash out a filter basket, after you're done filling the EZ-Cup and brewing, you simple open the top and pop out the spent filter basket made of paper. This makes disposing of the coffee grounds really easy, and the entire popped out coffee filter and coffee are able to be composted.

We've had the EZ-Cup now for a few weeks thanks to the folks at As Seen on TV Products sending us one to review, and we have tried a variety of coffee grounds with various success - all of the coffee produced being really quite good. We find the darker finer ground roasts to be our favorites.
