Conan Takes Jordan Schlansky Coffee Tasting at Intelligentsia Coffee

Conan coffee trip

It’s Wednesday and we are always looking for something a little funny to get us over the hump. This coffee trip from Conan definitely get’s us in a better mood this morning, and should help you crack a well deserved single serve coffee smile.

In this video clip Conan’s assistant Jordan takes his caffeine very seriously, so Conan tests his espresso knowledge at LA's Intelligentsia Coffee. We love how awkward and downright ruthless Conan can be with Jordan, and when he pulls out some CoffeeMate at Intelligentsia the look on the barista’s faces is pretty amazing.

Keurig Cold Adds Dr Pepper to Lineup of Single Serve Sodas

Img dr pepper family 12133093171

If drinking a cold Coke from your Keurig Cold System in the future wasn't enough, Keurig has inked a deal to bring Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) flavor options for the new machine.

Dr Pepper also brings the brands and flavors of 7UP, A&W, Canada Dry, Clamato, Crush, Hawaiian Punch, Mott's, Mr & Mrs T mixers, Peñafiel, Rose's, Schweppes, Squirt and Sunkist sodas and beverages to Keurig Cold. That makes an impressive lineup for the launch of Keurig Cold later this year.

Keurig Cold is an innovative new beverage system that will offer consumers a convenient way to enjoy cold beverages made at home, including carbonated drinks, enhanced waters, juice drinks, sports drinks, and teas at home with the one-touch simplicity, quality, and variety that North American consumers love about the Keurig brand hot system platform.

Stash Tea - Single Serve Tea K-Cups

 

Stash tea kcups

Given the cold across the US and in the Northeast, we’ve not only been drinking coffee by day but lots of warm yummy tea by night. We recently got a set of Stash Tea K-Cups thanks to the folks at Two Rivers Coffee sent to us and have been enjoying a bunch of the various blends and flavors. Stash Tea comes in compatible K-Cup format pack, and makes a really perfect cup of tea.

Our favorite Stash Tea so far? We’re loving the Chai Spice Black Single Serve Cup, and we really love the Peppermint Herbal Single Serve Cups as well. Whatever you decide on from their long list below, we think you’ll find something to brew in your K-Cup Brewer but NOT Keurig 2.0.

  • Double Bergamot Earl Grey Black Single Serve Cup
  • Moroccan Mint Green Single Serve Cup
  • Jasmine Blossom Green Single Serve Cup
  • Lemon Ginger Herbal Single Serve Cup
  • Chai Spice Black Single Serve Cup
  • Chai Green Single Serve Cup
  • English Breakfast Black Single Serve Cup
  • Super Irish Breakfast Black Single Serve Cup
  • Peppermint Herbal Single Serve Cup
  • Pomegranate Raspberry Green Single Serve Cup
  • Earl Grey Black Single Serve Cup
  • Chamomile Herbal Single Serve Cup
  • Premium Green Single Serve Cup
  • Mango Passionfruit Herbal Single Serve Cup

Van Houtte Cafe Bistro Visit in Montreal 2014

Montreal 2014 van houtte bistro

We spent the day visiting old and new Montreal, and had to pay a visit to a Van Houte Cafe Bistro. The Cafe Mocha and Cafe Latte were both very tasty, and the staff super nice given our not so amazing french. The Van Houte Bistros serve sandwiches, coffee, and yes - pastries. Yummy yummy pastries like a chocolate croissant.

Van houtte single serve coffee kcups

They also feature a wide selection of single serve coffees in K-Cup format, and ground coffees in larger locations. We’d love to have more options like Van Houtte Cafes in the US than just Starbucks and Dunkin' - but then again that’s why you travel to places to enjoy what they have to offer.

Montreal Single Serve Coffee Trip 2014

Green mountain coffee 2014 montreal trip

We’re on a trip through the New Year here at Single Serve Coffee. We just passed by Keurig Green Mountain's headquarters on the way up the Montreal for a few days. We happened upon above a little north of Burlington, VT in a gas station serving from what we could tell just about every blend of Green Mountain coffee available. That’s a lot of coffee and surely a great deal of work to get made every day. Crazy.

Tassimo montreal 2014

After getting a cup ourselves, we arrived in Montreal later in the day to find Tassimo on sale. We’ve seen lots of Tassimo stuff in Canada, and we’ll be scouting around today for more coffee finds.

Get Your Aeropress On at Gregorys Coffee in New York City

Aero press new york

I just spent the weekend in New York City so I could run the 2014 New York City Marathon. I can safely say that the marathon was amazing, and finishing it was also amazing especially when you have so many coffee choices post race.

I had lots of different coffee options to choose from, but one of my favorite places to get single origin single Aeropressed coffee is Gregorys Coffee. The coffee choices are always interesting, and I decided on a nice Ethiopian Bourbon to have post race morning. Awesome. I am never disappointed in Gregorys Coffee when I’m in New York City and I think you should check one out the next time you visit.

Get a Starbucks Coffee Every Day for the Rest of Your Life

Starbucks coffee 1 for life

If you love Starbucks coffee you may want to visit one of their cafes twice a day this fall for the opportunity to get free “Starbucks for Life.” Starbucks has announced several traffic-driving initiatives for the holiday season, and it’s offering 100 uniquely designed Starbucks cards that would give customers a chance to get their daily cup of joe for free at the coffee giant’s locations.

The promotion will begin in early December and customers will have the chance to win the promotion twice a day. The promotion is for one free beverage or food item every day for 30 years.
Starbucks said customers can potentially win the “Starbucks for Life” cards by swiping their Starbucks store card or paying with their mobile device.

Imagine the shear number of pumpkin spice lattes you could consume over 30 years of Falls. We go to Starbucks just about twice a week and then a few times on the weekend so our chances aren’t as good as you daily drinkers but knowing we could win will make our visits a little more exciting.

Pumpkin Spice with John Oliver

Pumpkin spice latte jon oliver

Even though John Oliver is on hiatus until next weekend, he did decide to do a web exclusive video on our current trend in Fall coffee and food - Pumpkin Spice. Did you know an average American eats 5 pounds of pumpkin each year? That’s an awful lot of pumpkin spice products per person. We do love our pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, but we could do without all the pumpkin spice pastries. Also - pumpkin pie isn’t one of our favorites and John Oliver sums it up pretty well on how much we aren’t a fan. Video after the jump.

Lay's Cappuccino Potato Chips Review

Lays cappucinno chips

AB from Maine has sent in a review of Lay’s Cappuccino potato chips. I also got to try these chips recently, and I couldn’t escape the cinnamon grease finish. Brutual. I do however love the Wasabi Ginger Chips.

From AB:

On a recent trip to Wal-Mart, I came across Lay’s Cappuccino potato chips. Being a lover coffee, I was excited to see this and picked up a bag for $2.99.

Upon arriving home, my wife and I opened the bag and dug in. The initial taste of the chips where good. You get a nice creamy taste that you expect from drinking a cappuccino.

However that taste soon morphed into what I can only describe as foul. Once the initial taste from the chip was gone, you are left with the sensation that you are chewing on old coffee grounds. Imagine brewing a pot of coffee, removing the filter with the grounds still in it, placing it in your mouth, and chewing. Yeah that is the taste.

This was a nice idea that really missed the mark. Not sure, who did the product testing for this, but they should be fired.
