You can now get single serve soup packs for your Flavia brewer. Seeds of Change Tomato Soup will add a little wholesomeness to your day. Made with rich, organic tomatoes, enjoy it as a quick snack in-between meals or as a savory treat any time of the day. Low on calories and big on taste, it's a fill-up you can feel good about.
Also unlike K-Cups where the soup and brew head can get souped up at least with the Flavia every drink/soup comes from separate pouches and nothing ever touches any part of the machine.
Thanks to AC for sending this in.

It’s been awhile since we’ve had much news on the FLAVIA single serve brewer and coffee front, but it looks like they are getting some Peet’s Coffee to add to their already extensive line of coffees, teas, and other hot beverages. Mars Drinks which is now a 100 percent workplace-dedicated segment of Mars, Incorporated, has entered an agreement with Peet’s Coffee & Tea, to bring Peet’s premium coffee to offices across North America.
Mars Drinks is offering three of Peet’s most popular varieties, French Roast, Café Domingo and Colombia Luminosa, which are freshly-ground and packaged in Mars Drinks’ proprietary, recyclable Freshpacks to ensure taste, quality and freshness.
To celebrate the launch of Peet’s coffees, Mars Drinks is offering new customers with 50 or more employees a free trial of its FLAVIA brewers and Peet’s coffee varieties at www.marsdrinks.com/peets or by calling 1-877-273-5812. Mars Drinks current customers can order Peet’s coffees for FLAVIA brewers through their existing distributor relationship, or directly from Mars Drinks at myflavia.com/peetscoffee.

Though the brewers will remain FLAVIA branded for the time being, it looks like FLAVIA coffees are now branded under a the parent company name of Mars Drinks. This is not unexpected as the company can now grow a coffee and hot beverage brand along with the delivery method being the FLAVIA brewers. Congrats to Mars for making the change and we welcome our new Martian coffee overlords. :-)

We just found this interesting news bit about a local Milwaukee coffee roaster Alterra getting picked up as a coffee to be used in Flavia Single Serve Coffee makers. It seems the announcement is to show how Flavia will feature more fair trade coffees and more sustainable coffee producers. How sustainable and green is Altera? Well their operations are 100% wind powered, and they also have fair trade practices.
We'll let you know more as we find out, but in the mean time you can read our review of the Flavia single serve coffee maker here.

We thought we'd take a look at what's happening in Flavia land this morning. We recently received a set of their Rainforest Alliance Certified coffees, and we found the Kona Blend to be quite good. 10% of this Kona Blend originates from the volcanic slopes of Hawaii. These trees thrive in a combination climate of sunshine, rainfall, location and volcanic soil only available in Kona, thus creating a balanced flavor ranging from a medium to full body, with some acidic notes. We think this coffee is quite smooth, and it's nice to see Flavia offering some interesting and new blends for the Flavia line of single serve coffee makers.
The Kona Blend coffee packets will work in any Flavia machine.

Flavia is moving under the new brand from the Mars Family - Mars Drinks. So you can expect to start seeing the Flavia line of drinks station looks a little more like this - The Flavia Drinks Station from Mars Drinks. Oh, and we did we mention - there are two new Flavia drinks coming out: Kona Coffee and Malawi Garden Tea - a sustainable black tea. There's also a new Creation 200 single-serve drinks station designed for office environments with 15-40 people. The current line of Flavia Fusion Drinks Stations and the Creation 400 (read our visit to Mars Drinks) will continue to be sold throughout the US as well. Good news and we like the name - Mars Drinks. Though we live on a blue planet, it's nice to see the people from the red planet making a very interesting update to the single serve coffee world.

We've been moving into our fall/winter single serve coffee drinking habits, and one of the new flavors from Flavia - the Mars Swirl filter packs are making quite an impression here. A rich choco and creamy caramel swirl that is an ideal topping for your Cappuccinos and Mochaccinos, Mars Swirl is also quite good just as a stand alone cup of hot milky swirl goodness. You can also add some hot milk and get quite a delicious hot chocolate drink.
Whatever you decide, we think if you own a Flavia Fusion Drinks Station or the Flavia Fusion Deluxe Drinks Station then you're in business. Note: The Mars Swirl Flavia filter packs will not work with your SB100 drinks station.

We recently took a trip to Philadelphia to visit the folks that make Flavia. We've enjoyed the Flavia line of single serve coffee products since it's launch in the US way back in 1996, and had our first Flavia single serve coffee in 1999 at an office we worked at.
Since then, Flavia has launched a line of single serve coffee makers for the home and office with the Flavia Fusion Drinks Station, Flavia Fusion Deluxe Drinks Station, and the Creation 400 for the office. On our trip we really wanted to get behind the scene and talk with Flavia about what they're doing, and how they see growing single serve coffee as a consumer offering, and see how they make the Flavia filter packs for the Flavia Drinks Station.

One of the more interesting benefits of owning a Flavia Fusion Drinks Station or the Flavia Fusion Deluxe Drinks Station is the ability to create different type of FUSION drinks by combining different filter packs. We had no idea before our visit to Flavia (full article coming next week), that each month they put out different coffee drink recipes. This month's recipe is a Milky Way Swirl. We really liked the hot chocolate/Milky way drinks and think this recipe sounds pretty yummy.
Here's what you'll need:
- 1 Milky Way Swirl Filterpack
- 1 FLAVIA Gourmet, Single Origin, Flavored or Decaf Coffee Filterpack Ice
- Whipped cream (optional)
Here's what you do:
- Insert the Milky Way Swirl Filterpack and press the Frothy 2-Pack button to brew. divider
- Insert your favorite Gourmet Coffee Filterpack and press the Frothy 2- Pack button to brew. divider
- Pour over ice or place in blender with ice and top with whipped cream.

We recently traveled to the fabled land of Philadelphia to visit the people who make the Flavia Fusion Drinks Station and other Flavia products. We were treated to an entire four hour tour, but we actually have returned. What's happening at Flavia? What's new? There's too much to tell today, but we did see the new FLAVIA® Creation 400™ drinks station, and we got a tour of the plant. Yep - we got to see how they keep the coffee fresh before it's packed into the Flavia filterpack.
We've even got a shot or two of the amazing user interface/experience of the FLAVIA® Creation 400™ drinks station.

The new Flavia Fusion Drinks Station Deluxe has a slew of improvements over the Flavia Fusion Drinks Station we reviewed earlier last year. We've been testing the machine over the past few weeks and unlike other one cup coffee makers we've reviewed recently, it's managed to stay there for the entire time and have quite a bit of Flavia coffee run through it.
Flavia Fusion Drinks Station Deluxe Features:
- Stainless Steel Accents
- Separate Hot Water Button
- Blue LED Lights
- No Cleaning Between Drinks Required
- Visible Water Level Indicator
- Adjustable cup height
- Water filter for purification
- Large Capacity Water Tank
What do we think of this new Flavia? How is the Flavia coffee on a revisit? Do the new features make the new price of $169.99 a bit too high or too low?
