Weirder things have happened in the Single Serve Coffee World, but nothing weirder than a cat named Sockington, and a cafe latte printer. Yep - a cat and a latte meet together on a coffee table, and on said coffee table is an amazing printer that can well - print an image on the foam of your latte. Crazy. The printer is from OnLatte.com - we'll see what we can find on that, but for now enjoy some Sockington.
Oh well - we never got a cup of coffee at the Topless Coffee Shop in Maine, but the bigger bummer is the fact the shop has burned down. What's an even bigger bummer - the fire was caused by arson. You'd think in these tough economic times people could leave a little topless coffee shop alone, but the fire followed a Tuesday night planning board meeting in which coffee shop owner talked about his expansion plans for the business as well as having dancing and longer operating hours.
We guess someone said - enough is enough, and decided to take the law into their own hands. Well - we say - not cool. We hope everyone is okay, and perhaps they'll be able to rebuild and start serving coffee soon. A special thanks to Beth for sending this in.
We love the Single Serve Coffee forums because they get single serve coffee drinkers discussing lots of topics near and dear to our coffee drinking hearts - like how do you store your K-Cups, coffee pods, and T-Discs? Member Frigidaire has kicked off a lengthy discussion on what types of storage in use in their kitchen, and other members have chimed in with their solutions - pictures included.
Personally we use a variety of methods because we have about 8 types of different pods, capsules, and other stuff to store. Click on through and check out some of these amazing single serve coffee and one cup storage setups.
McDonald's said on Wednesday the McCafe coffee roll-out is off to a good start and that data on its market share impact should be available in about six months. McDonald's has said it expects the addition of beverages ranging from coffee and cappuccino to water and sports drinks to eventually add $1 billion to annual sales.
Whatever the success it has - we say - save your money. We visited a McCafe enabled McDonald's yesterday, and both the latte and cappuccino are not worth the money. It's a shame really, we liked it when they upgraded their base coffee offerings to Green Mountain, and then onto the current generic "better coffee", but even that isn't worth it. At over $1.19 to upwards of $3+ bucks for some drinks, you could purchase 3-6 single serve coffee K-Cups, T-Discs, or coffee pods.
We're also not sure about mixing our burger eating (which we do at Five Guys Burgers), with our coffee drinking. McDonald's though is an often presence on long car rides and trips, so being able to get some decent coffee on the road makes sense - provided there isn't a Starbucks or Lavazza boutique to get our beverage of choice from.
Whatever you decide - we're deciding to save our money and get more single serve coffee choices for our one cup coffee maker. What do you think? Will you be visiting a McCafe soon?

This coffee maker by Kamil Kurka looks like it just beamed off the deck of the Enterprise, and we think we want one. Just a concept for now, this single serve coffee maker of the future features adjustable heat and quantity of coffee for your coffee mug. The movable base tray allows you to remove the coffee mug from the machine safely. We're not sure if the machine uses ground coffee, coffee pods, or coffee capsules, but whatever the method we love the look and design of this machine, and we can't wait for it to hit the shelves someday soon.
We're pretty sure we've never seen a roaster, grinder, and single serve coffee maker all in this format before. One of the things that makes this such an amazing single serve coffee maker is the fact the entire process is done using glass beakers, thus allowing you to view the entire coffee making session. We love it, and think you'll truly get the idea by watching the video below.
Take 50 green beans. Roast for 7 minutes for a medium roast, 9 minutes for a dark roast. Cool beans. Whilst grinding the cooled beans heat the water until air bubbles begin to pop. Place ground beans into water. Stir and brew for 4 minutes. Then pour and enjoy a cup of fresh perfect coffee.
Having had the pleasure of creating my own coffee drinks over the years, it's nice to see a collection of over 50 drink recipes featuring everyone's favorite morning beverage - coffee. Recipe contributors include cutting-edge coffee purveyors and a highly competitive cadre of coffeehouse baristas.
Do you have coffee drinks that you make with your single serve coffee maker? Sound off in the comments and let us know. One of our current favorites is to take the Nescafe Dolce Gusto and froth up some milk, then pour in some chocolate syrup, and then combine this with a gingerbread confit shot of Nespresso. Yum! We call it the Chocolate Coffee Confit.
It's Earth Day, and we think the perfect way to celebrate is to plant a coffee tree. We found these coffee tree seeds thanks to our loyal reader Sheila who is very concerned with the environment. The Kona is the very popular coffee of Hawaii. Its a heavy bearing variety with excellent quality. One producing tree can provide 1 lb. of coffee, and we're sure it can clean the air while it makes said coffee. It has large, deep green, glossy leaves and white flowers, each lasting a few days, with a scent like jasmine. It can be grown as a houseplant in a bright position or in a conservatory.
We think if you spend $3.99 today, and then plant a Kona Tree in your yard or living room - you'll be helping out the planet, and you'll even get some amazing coffee. Happy Earth Day everyone!
Expected to retail for $130 when it debuts, this single serve coffee maker called the IMO Coffee Maker is something truly different. It has been designed to enrich the users with a unique coffee making experience by having them position an arm of coffee to drink from. The device is able to make three cups of coffee without refilling the water reservoir. One of the most interesting features is an articulated arm that can be used in different positions to be used with containers of diverse heights such as tall travel mugs or shorter coffee mugs.
