Europe: Senseo Mystic Valley Columbia Blend Coffee Pods

Columbia

Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff has brought to our attention new Senseo pods out in Europe. We're not sure when they'll be out in the US, but we would imagine Senseo has to release some new flavors this year and Colombia Blend coffee pods seem like a no brainer.

"Mystic Valley; Columbia Blend." I actually already saw them in Germany, but you could only buy them in combination with a machine..They should be available around May 2006, and I will be stocking them as soon as I can get my hands on them.

Senseo Cappuccino Coffee Pods Arrive for Review

Img 2350

We're pretty excited to compare the Senseo Cappuccino coffee pods to the Home Cafe Cappuccino coffee pods. Priced at $19.99 for 40 Cappuccino coffee pods at Amazon.com and others, puts the price per cappuccino at $.50 cents. Not bad. We'll give you the full run down very soon and may even try to get one of these into some of the other single serve coffee pod machines.

Made from the finest gourmet beans, these single-serve coffee pods provide premium coffee sealed inside their own filter for a smooth and balanced taste every time. The Cappuccino coffee pods offer a rich, creamy, frothy layer that will be sure to satisfy the most discriminating cappuccino aficionado. Depending on personal preference, the pods can be doubled up for a stronger cup of coffee, and for mess-free disposal, the pods are virtually drip-free. Senseo coffee pods are also available in Dark Roast, Mild Roast, and Decaffeinated Medium Roast. Made specifically for the Senseo coffee machine, the four-pack includes 40 fresh and flavorful single-serve coffee pods.

First Impressions: Nescafe Coffee Pods with Toppings

Img 2322Img 2317Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff has sent over the newly released Nescafe Coffee Pods with toppings. These new pods are a totally new concept because each box contains 8 individually wrapped coffee pods and 8 individually wrapped toppings. You place the pod in the machine and the topping in your cup. You then stir through the coffee when it is still brewing and enjoy a cappuccino, cafe au lait, or chocolate coffee, for only €0.62 or roughly 0.74 USD a cup before shipping.

We've been sampling the three different flavors over the past few days and wanted to give first impressions on this interesting set of pods and toppings. First of all - putting the powder into the cup and watching the machine brew up a cup while the hot coffee goes into the large pile of powder isn't that appealing to look at but the results are tasty. We don't think any of these are the best Cafe Late we've ever had or the best Cappuccino but they're light years ahead of the Home Cafe Cappuccino.

What's interesting is how the toppings are not really toppings but more like filler to the overall cup and really make the coffee a bit thicker and have a milk flavor right out of the single serve coffee maker. This makes the toppings really a supporting cast instead of an overbearing flavor.

We'll have a full review soon.

These new Nescafe coffee pods and toppings come in three flavors: Caffe Cioccolato (chocolate), Cappucino, and Cafe au Lait. We'll have full run down next week on these as we finish up our reviews of the FLAVIA Fusion and Grindmaster GPOD this week. We'll also put these into the GPOD to see how it compares to the Senseo.

Cafepods Coffee Pods Arrive for Review

Img 2297We've just received the entire Cafepods line to review here at Single Serve Coffee.com and fast! It took from 3/3/06 on Friday to Monday 3/6/06 to have them ship from the UK. It took only 2 days to ship when you take out Sunday.

We'll be taking a hard look at these coffee pods over the next week or so and expect a full run down of what we've sampled. It's good to note that Cafepods come packed two-8 gram pods to a pack, and three of their coffee pods also come in the 14 gram double pod size and are single packed.

Buying 200 pods and getting the free shipping will run you roughly $108 from the UK and putting the price per pod ~$.50 cents per pod - not bad for super fresh pods you can't get anywhere else. These coffee pods will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers.

Coffee Pod Flavors Available from Cafepods:

Regular Range

  • Italian*
  • Dark Roast*
  • Decaf Caffee*
  • Caffee Dark

  • Vanilla
  • Irish Cream

Cafepods Launches Online Store Dedicated to US Customers

458TCafepodsRemember Cafepods? We do. Back in 2004 when we launched Single Serve Coffee.com they were the only place you could get pods for your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers. Because Cafepods was UK based the US Government made it a total pain to ship order direct to the US. Well now that trouble is gone.

Cafepods has a dedicated US website and they ship UPS Air Express for as low as $14.95, and with orders placed over $100 bucks, your order will ship FREE! All Cafepods Coffee pods use freshly roasted coffee, ground and measured to exact requirement weight then encapsulated in paper.

You may want to read our review of their French Vanilla Pods way back in June of 2004 to get more familiar with Cafepods US (Easypods.co.uk in Europe). We'll be getting a set of their new coffee pods to review very soon.
