Designed by Brazilian designer Lucas Vieira, this coffee cup cubicle may be the ultimate work space for any single serve coffee drinker. We imagine an integrated Nespresso in this cubicle, along with plenty of different blends to enjoy throughout the day. Lucas calls this space the Coffee Office Workstation, and it features a touchscreen computer, space for your laptop and a spot for coffee (just a regular mug - no travel mugs). Not sure if it will ever be made, but if it does get made we're changing out our boring cubes for some cool coffee ones.
This story is kind of funny and kind of sad. Most modern scoots have plenty of room to hold a cup of coffee, but at least if you want to drive through on your scooter to get food or coffee you should be allowed to. Geez!
Here's pretty much the same story about a customer on a motorized scooter not being allowed to use the drive through, this time at a Tim Hortons coffee establishment in Nova Scotia. He's not going to sue, but plans to appeal to Nova Scotia's Human Rights Commission.
The attendant wouldn't serve him because of a company policy banning pedestrians, bicycles, and wheelchairs, including motorized scooters, from using the drive-thru. Matthews says that means no coffee for him, because he can't manoeuvre his scooter through the front door.
"It would take three people to get me in. And I don't even know if I'll be able to turn around when I get inside. And, if I don't run over somebody inside trying to back this up, it would be a small miracle," Matthews said.

Wondering what to do with all of those leftover coffee filters since you switched to Single Serve Coffee? Well wonder no longer - you're going to clean all of those ethernet connections in your life. Yep - coffee filters can be used to clean the tips of ethernet cables if you're having troubles with the line.
After reporting some issues with their internet connection, technicians advised the folks over at Unplggd to wipe the tips of their ethernet cord with a coffee filter. Apparently the filters are excellent at catching loose impediments like lint, plus the technician reported witnessing more than on instance where installers had left cheeseburger grease on cords. Gross.
According to a study we found over at the Consumerist - arriving early to a job interview is just about as bad as missing it or being late. Their advice? Take a coffee break or perhaps a single serve coffee break and get there on time instead of early.
Sure, we all know that it's as disastrous to arrive late for a job interview as it is to submit your resume written in crayon. But have you ever thought about what happens if you arrive early? According to resume consultant Adam Sterling, arriving early disrupts your interviewers' schedules and creates tension.
Our Canadian correspondent, Shawn (a.k.a. "SH") recently wrote in to advise us of a new item which started appearing in most Superstore & Loblaws grocery markets the past few weeks. The grocery chain’s national brand is "President’s Choice" and this year, they added a new flavor to their line-up of Italian Sodas… coffee. Here’s what he had to say:
I’m sure most of you have had coffee in just about every imaginable form one could think of and the only thing which could compare to this would be "Coke Blak", however, this is not a coffee-flavored cola or a coffee-based energy drink. This is pure 100% Arabica coffee extract added to carbonated water without any added flavorings other than caramelized sugar to help sweeten things up.

This robot uses about 20 digital servos in the body and a ton of robot magic to make a perfect cup of coffee. We can only wish our robot masters in the future make such an amazing cup of coffee, and don't make us serve them.
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.
