We’re all familiar with coffee pods, K-Cups, and other ways to brew single cups of coffee, but what do you do if you want a single dose of marijuana? With legal marijuana on the rise, there has to be a solution and Cannakorp was born. CannaKorop is the world's first single-serve, pod-based vaporizer system and it's coming to market in early 2017. Dubbed the CannaCloud, it's essentially the Keurig of cannabis.
Here's how CannaCloud works:
- The user inserts a pre-measured cup of marijuana into a travel mug-like canister.
- With the press of a button, the canister heats the marijuana and fills with vapor in less than a minute.
- A plastic mouthpiece opens a one-way valve that releases the vapor. Voilà.
If using the CannaCloud sounds similar to popping a K-Cup into a Keurig machine, that's because CannaKorp has two former executives from the leading single-serve coffee maker company sitting at the helm.
'When you pick up one of the pods, you're able to read the brand, strength, and strain,' Dave Manly, chairman of CannaKorp, told Tech Insider back in November. 'Every time you do it, it's going to be the same.'
The CannaCloud will retail for $149, but a single-use pod, which contains only 0.4 grams of marijuana will run $9.99 each.

Over at NPR and other sites we’re finding stories of Keurig’s sales continuing to fall. Sales are in the decline at Keurig with bookings down some $60 million from last year. Besides K-Cups not being kind to the environment, there’s also been a general dislike of Keurig 2.0 and Keurig KOLD sales are supposedly not great either.
What do you think are Keurig’s troubles? Remember when K-Cups were supposed to take over the world? We did and still think they might if Keurig can make some changes.

We started our New Years with a bunch of great movie viewing late last night, followed by a brisk run this morning in 2016. We have lots on tap for 2016 and it’s our 12th anniversary in May. We simply can’t believe it’s been 12 years since we launched Single Serve Coffee. 12 years is a long time, but we can imagine another 12 years of blogging ahead and enjoying lots more single serve coffee.
Thanks to everyone for contributing all of your news and cheer in 2015, and we expect even more contributors to step up in 2016 so we can bring you the news everyday.
Raise your cup to 2016 - this year is going to be AWESOME!

Over at CNN.com there’s more news coffee is saving your life for those who don’t smoke and drink three to five cups a day. That’s right for people who've never smoked, the benefits of drinking coffee is pretty amazing: Those who drank between less than a cup of coffee and three cups a day had 6% to 8% lower risk of dying than noncoffee drinkers. Those who drank three to five cups and more than five cups had 15% and 12% lower death rates.
So I’m pretty sure I’m upping my game in with regards to coffee consumption. Are you?

3D printing is on the rise in the United States and world wide, and if you want to use some eco-conscious 3D ink or filament so far you’ve been out of luck. 3Dom – one of the largest manufacturers of filament for 3D printing – has teamed up with biocomposite developer c2renew to bring the filament made from recycled coffee grounds. How does it work?
Wound Up is a coffee filled 3D printing filament made using waste byproducts from coffee. Wound Up uses those coffee left-overs to create a special 3D printing material with visibly unique print finishes. The filament produces products with a rich brown color and a noticeable natural grain. There’s also a video available about Wound Up here.
So remember if you print a coffee cup with Wound Up it’s really a coffee cup through and through.

The Keurig KOLD single serve soda machine is changing how families enjoy their favorite beverages at home. The KOLD produces individual servings of freshly made, cold, carbonated and non-carbonated drinks, including authentic Coca-Cola Company and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group favorites, plus craft sodas, iced teas, flavored water, sports drinks, iced teas and more.
How the Keurig KOLD Works
If you have seen a Keurig coffee brewer in action, you probably have a good idea of how Keurig machines make delicious drinks in every flavor imaginable. The KOLD follows in this tradition of customizing beverages for each person in the home.
Like its hot beverage counterpart, the Keurig KOLD uses small, individual serving cups (called KOLD pods in this case) to make fresh drinks for each member of the household. We just have to remove the freshness seal from the bottom on the KOLD pod, insert it in the machine and press the button to make a perfectly mixed, instantly cold beverage – even a carbonated one.
