Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff has sent us in a set of the Dutch AH pods to review. We've brought these pods with us on our trip along with the Community Coffee Pods to review on our mother in-laws Senseo, while traveling to Northern California. Wow - was that a mouthful.
Expect a full review over the next week as we taste the coffee from Hyampom - deep in the Northern California mountains. We've got Dutch Roast, French Roast, Italian Roast, Java Blend, Ethiopia Blend, and Brazil Blend to sample. So - stay tuned!

We just had to review these new French Vanilla Pods by BetterPods. We are totally suckers for a great tasting cup of French Vanilla and the new BetterPods French Vanilla does the trick. We recently reviewed the Sumatra Mandheling from BetterPods and found those coffee pods to be quite good as well.
BetterPods are packaged in sleeves of individually packed pods of 14 or in large sampler packs of 20 pods per box. BetterPods weigh in at ~10grams each and will fit Senseo, Home Cafe, and Bunn My Cafe single serve coffee machines.
How does the french vanilla coffee brewed from a BetterPods French Vanilla coffee pod rate?

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of visiting Baronet Coffee in Hartford, Connecticut. They invited Single Serve Coffee.com to come down (we're Boston based) and sample the new roasts they had just released under the One Cup coffee brand. We were also invited to see the coffee roasting plant and watch them make single serve coffee pods and sample their new espresso line of ESE pods.
After the jump - making single serve coffee and a movie of making single serve coffee pods!

You may have seen these on eBay - well now we have an entire set of BetterPod coffee pods to review. Expect a full review of all the flavors.
About Better Pods:
"Betterpods is all about better coffee for your single serve home brewer. These machines brew with excellent heat and under good pressure - so they are capable of producing an excellent cup of coffee… but only with the right pods."
Robert Maurer from PA sent us in a set of JaVaNa One coffee pods to review. The JaVaNa One pods can be found in Giant Food Stores and Stop & Shop branded food stores throughout the northeast and mid-atlantic states. We haven't found any place on the web you can order JaVaNa One pods but hopefully this will change in the future.
Each JaVaNa One coffee pod back holds 18, 7 gram coffee pods and works in Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, and other one cup coffee brewers. We found you'll need 2 pods to really get the cup of coffee you'll want to drink. They come packed very much like the Senseo or Maxwell House coffee pods, and for this review we focused on the Sumatra coffee pods and found that we liked what we brewed a whole lot.

Recently Jay asked me to test out the Arabica Express Podhead.com coffee pods for the Melitta One:One. I've done a few reviews for Single Serve Coffee.com over the past year including a re-review of the Melitta One:One so I know this machine intimately. Actually the Melitta One:One is my daily coffee machine of choice and I look forward to the red little wonder every morning.
Jay was paricularly interested in seeing how the coffee pods did with the Melitta One: One. He had recently done a review of the Podhead.com AE Sensation coffee pods using the Bunn My Cafe and loved them. So Sit back, relax, grab a cup, and I'll tell you all about my experience the Arabica Express Coffee Pods for the Melitta One:One:

We were excited to see Maxwell House Coffee enter the world of the coffee pod. The Maxwell House coffee pods are designed to be used with the Bunn My Cafe, Senseo, and Home Cafe systems. Most of our excitement came from the Maxwell House Coffee "Taste Lock - Resealable Package". We liked the design of the package, and wondered if it would pack coffee freshness within.
On the flavor front there is a total of 4 flavors currently available in their new coffee pod line: House Blend, House Blend Decaf, French Roast, and Hazelnut. We decided to go with the House Blend Coffee pods from Maxwell house for this review. It is the Maxwell House standard for their coffee, and being made from 100% arabica ground coffee we thought, "How bad or good would this be?".
