Single Serve Coffee Machine Reads Your Mind

Coffeeai

This press release is more of an idea than an actual product, but the idea of owning a coffee machine that can read our single serve coffee mind is exactly what the next Keurig, Nespresso, or Flavia Fusion needs. Developed by JL Hufford, the "super automatic coffee machine" will be able to learn your coffee-drinking patterns so any time you crave a cup of joe, it'll have your favorite drink waiting for you.

Coffee Buzz on NPR

Coffee170

The Coffee Buzz show featured on NPR recently has some interesting tidbits on current coffee trends. We really enjoyed getting the low down on coffees that aren't uber dark and chunky. Many of the coffees tasted on the show were on the lighter side and sounded like they tasted amazing and different. We're going to be tracking down some of the blends to try in our Gaggia Baby D, Perfect Pod Maker, and Keurig reuseable filter. There's also a full list of coffees tasted on the NPR web site.

Once upon a time, Americans chugged 30 cent cups of coffee or whipped up the Folger's at home and kept on moving. Then came the "coffee culture," and biggest of all Starbucks. Now, Starbucks is moving toward 40,000 outlets and drive-thru ubiquity.

And the buzz on coffee is moving, again. Aficionados are talking like wine lovers. Treating beans like grapes and plantations like vineyards. Talking about a coffee's "notes of maple syrup" or "hint of peaches and pecan." We're curious.

    TV Network Ads Should All Feature Coffee

    We were wandering the endless clips of coffee fun over at You Tube, and chanced upon this gem for channel 2 in the UK. When we watch any network filler on channel 2 or the like, we often wonder why we don't live in London versus Boston. These TV promos always make us feel safe, and like the next thing they're going to show is exactly what we want to watch. And when you add coffee to the mix? A perfect coffee meets TV match is made in You Tube heavan.

    Chocolate Coffee Easter Eggs

    Ind450007I

    We can't believe Easter is this weekend, and we can't believe how obsessed for the past two days we've been about having some Cadbury Creme eggs. So, you can imagine our web surfing has finally resulted in the ultimate chocolate egg - the Chocolate Coffee Egg. If coffee is your thing, then you're in for a real treat because the Chocolate Coffee Egg has one extra thick shell in 40% milk chocolate and the other in cappuccino chocolate, blended with finely ground Arabica coffee. Imagine this baby spiced up with a little Kona Blend? Inside the Chocolate Coffee Egg are 6 recipes all inspired by coffee - cappuccino, latte macchiato, mocha liqueur, espresso and more. We are hoping the Easter Bunny can hide this in our backyard on Sunday...fingers are crossed.

    Making Single Serve Coffee with a Laser

    Okay so we're not saying we hooked up the Keurig with a giant laser and then aimed it at a K Cup, but we did find this rather sweet video of what we can only call "uber coffee nerds" making some sweet single serve joe.

    Starbucks Single Serve Coffee Vending Machines

    Starbucksvending

    If you thought Starbucks would stop at being at every corner coffee shop to serve you coffee, well you'd be wrong. In a quest for total hot beverage domination, Starbucks is going to go for the vending machine market. In a joint venture with PepsiCo, Starbucks plans to expand their coffee offerings with vending machines, because you can't put a full sized Starbucks everywhere can you? And why wouldn't you want a cup of Starbucks coffee at your local train station or bus stop?

    This isn't a big leap, given you can purchase their chilled drinks just about anywhere, but we'll have to see what beverage we pick given the choice of a diet pepsi or frappucino in the coming summer months. We're betting frappucino.

    Tully's Coffee plans IPO = More Tully's K Cups?

    Tullyslogowebmid521352We don't often cover that much business stuff in the Single Serve Coffee world, but it's nice to see a company like Tully's doing well enough to file for an IPO. What does this mean? Perhaps more amazing Tully's K Cups for your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the Keurig B70 Brewer? We think so.

    Tully's Coffee Corporation has announced plans to file a registration statement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the initial public offering of its common stock. US-based Tully's Coffee expects to file the registration statement before the end of April 2007, and anticipates that gross proceeds from the offering will reach approximately $50 million. Proceeds will fund the expansion of its retail and wholesale operations.

    Senseo Coffee Maker Video

    This might be the only segment on a morning news program we've seen in quite awhile to do single serve coffee justice. "Inspector Gadget" talks a bit fast and the woman is a bit annoying and "newsy", but the inspector knows his stuff. We like the coverage in the segment and the facts about coffee pods are spot on.
