Review: Archer Farms French Vanilla Coffee Pods

Img 0335 Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsTarget has their own in house brand of food items called Archer Farms. They've put out chips, pretzels, spices, and now coffee pods! Target tried earlier in the year to do a Juan Valdez brewer, but settled on going the pod route with the Archer Farms in house brand.

The Archer Farms pods are 10g pods from what I can tell. They fill up the Bunn My Cafe brewer pod holder quite nicely. Archer Farms pods come boxed in a sleeve of 16 individually wrapped pods. I really like the packaging. It's simple, clean, and overall easy to read. There is a little scale to tell you how dark or how mild the roast is. This style box is becoming the standard coffee pod dispenser.

Javana Coffee Pods Arrive from Reader for Review

Javana PodsRobert Maurer of Pennsylvania has sent in some Javana Pods for review. We've heard rumblings of these pods from some other sources, but had not been able to get them in the Boston area. We are trying to figure out exactly "WHO" makes the Javana Coffee Pods. We think Javana is an store brand for Tops Supermarket and Giant Supermarkets. Who knows? We'll find out before we finish the review. The Javana Coffee pods are designed to work with Home Cafe, Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, and other 62mm pods. The pods are of the 7gram size and it takes 2 pods to make an 8 oz cup.

Community Coffee One-Cup Coffee Pods

Dark-Roast-Coffee-Pod-16201-SCommunity Coffee seems to keep popping up in my world this week. I was searching for on Chicory coffee in Louisiana - to see if Cafe Du Monde made pods (just hoping but no go). Well - that search has landed me on Community Coffee and they do make coffee pods and are also a local Louisiana favorite. Then last night we were dining at Magnolia's here in Boston (a Louisiana influenced creole menu and just amazing), I was surprised to find out that they served Community Coffee's chicory blend, and not Cafe Du Monde's coffee. I got into a rather long discussion with the waitress and then the owner about the pros-and-cons of both varieties, and I have to say the Community Coffee chicory blend we had wasn't bad. Okay - now for the pod news. Community Coffee has got 4 coffee pod flavors right now. I'll see what I can drum up for samples to review. Seems the pods only work in the Bunn My Cafe - but if we get them to review, I'll try them out in the Senseo and others.

"Brew a distinctive cup of coffee or tea every time with Community Coffee one-cup pods. Individually wrapped for ultimate freshness, each pod has just the right amount of premium arabica coffee to brew the perfect cup. Enjoy one of your favorite varieties today."

Senseo City Sensations Coffee Pods Review

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 0132 1When Senseo launched in the US - it only had Light, Medium, and Dark Roast pods. In Europe, they had a plethora of pod flavors and everyone here in the US was just plain jealous and wanting more flavors. Well, Senseo has finally come out with more pod flavors in the US!

The New Senseo Pod Flavors

There are 3 new flavors within the Senseo City Sensations line:

I'm surprised that they went for all flavored coffees, but not when I called my mom to get her impressions. My mom and dad both love flavored coffees, and even use flavored creamer. My mom was pumped that these would be available and also that they would fit her Senseo machine. She also said after trying them - that they were all very yummy.

So - my Mom loves them - what would we think?

Starbucks Espresso Roast Coffee Pods Available

313025Starbucks has finally put out some coffee pods, but I'm pretty sure these are espresso pods, and not meant to be used with your Home Cafe or Senseo type pod machines. I'll see if I can get a sample of these and find out. If they are ESE or espresso pods, I'll have to fire up the Francis Francis and see how they taste. Thanks to Joe for sending in this news tip!

Update: Indeed these are Espresso Pods and not for use with Home Cafe or Senseo. I will review these in the upcoming weeks with the Francis Francis machine or another one of the Espresso Pod machines that are coming in for review. Thanks to everyone writing in to let me know what these pods will fit in.
