Happy New Year from Single Serve Coffee

Happynewyear2006Ssc

What can we say? It's been an amazing 2006 here at Single Serve Coffee. We've reviewed more single serve coffee stuff than we could have possibly imagined, and the year has introduced new single serve coffee brewers, coffee flavors, and coffee experiences. We look forward to more k-cup reviews, more single serve coffee machine reviews, more coffee pod reviews, and yes - just more singles serve coffee stuff. So raise your mug and may 2007 have all the same single serve coffee wonder as 2006 has.

CHEERS!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Japanese Toast-Coffee-Egg-Maker

Toastcoffeegg

We're still in awe at the need to make toast, coffee, and eggs at the same time and have it fit in such a tiny space. It takes only 10 minutes to get all three cooked and brewed, and we're pretty sure this would make some bacon as well. The problem is the coffee pot, we'd prefer perhaps a nice Nespresso or Mico-Keurig brewer instead.

    Simple Better Trade Organic Coffee Arrives for Review

    Barista

    Logo SmallWant to purchase an organic coffee from a company that pays its growers more than Fair Trade does? Meet Simple Coffee. Steve, Josh, and Mike from Simple Coffee have pledged to provide consumers with the freshest, more organic, and socially conscious coffee on the planet.

    We've received a set of the coffees fresh from the Simple roasting facility to try with our Keurig reuseable Filter and also with our T-Sacs in the Bunn My Cafe. We'll have a full review soon.

    From Simple Coffee: Some of the best coffee in the world is grown by small growers in third world countries who need the help of organizations like Fair Trade, but Fair Trade isn’t for everyone. “Why can’t Simple Coffee be Fair Trade?” We think a better question is, “How can we help growers who can’t be Fair Trade?”

    In order to be Fair Trade, these growers would have to sign contracts pledging to produce a certain volume of coffee each year. Small, family-owned farms simply can’t afford to produce this much coffee and still grow food to eat. Other growers live in countries where it is illegal to sign Fair Trade contracts. Does this mean that these growers don’t deserve fair pay? Simple Coffee doesn’t think so. That’s why we pay better than the Fair Trade price per pound for all of our coffee. It’s just the right thing to do.

    Cost Per Single Serve Coffee Cup: Coffee Pods, Keurig K Cups, Tassimo T Discs, and Nespresso Coffee Capsules

    singleservecoffees_guide.jpg

    Readers are always writing in asking the Single Serve Coffee staff how much the different single serve coffee systems cost to own and operate and especially how much each cup of single serve coffee will cost. We think the questions "what's best", or what's "cheapest," or what's "least expensive" all fall under this category of question as well, but starting with what type of coffee you'd like to make and how much it will cost is a good way to find out which single serve coffee maker is the least expensive to own and operate.

    Are Senseo Coffee Pods, Tassimo T-Disks, K-Cups or Nespresso Coffee Capsules the best option for you? Which system falls in your price range? Does the single serve coffee maker or system match your coffee drinking habits? These are all good questions that go hand and hand with the price per cup.

    The guide below should give you all the detail you need to know on what coffee system may be right for you. Depending on which type of single serve coffee maker you choose, be it coffee pods, k cups, t discs, or nespresso capsules, you'll be choosing the type of coffee you can get per system and also how much per cup your single serve coffee will cost, and how flexible that cost can be, and what types of coffee the single serve coffee maker can prepare.

    If you look at the four major type of single serve coffee you can purchase there are essentially 4 main types:

    1. Coffee Pods - work with a variety of single serve coffee makers including: Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, Grindmaster, simplehuman, and Krups Home Cafe. Coffee pod brewers are the "open standard" of single serve coffee makers, with the largest variety of coffees available reaching over 250+ varieties of coffee pods.
    2. K Cups - work only with Keurig brewers. Models include: Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the newly released Keurig B70 Brewer. You can expect to get in the 150+ variety range for K Cup types of coffee as well as tea.
    3. T Discs: works only with the Tassimo line of single serve coffee makers. You can expect to get 30+ different coffees and teas for your Tassimo brewer.
    4. Nespresso Coffee Capsules: works only with the Nespresso line of single serve coffee makers. On average there are 12 regular varieties and 3-4 unique varieties per year.

    Given the run down of each of the different types, how much does each cup of single serve coffee cost per system?

    Espesso - Single Serve Coffee You Can Eat

    Espesso

    Espesso (without the “r”) has been out in Europe and major cities in the US this Fall and we can't wait to try it. Espesso is a form of solid espresso coffee and eaten with a spoon. Espesso consists of espresso, an ingredient the company won’t divulge, and then it's combined in a pressurized canister and left to set for 12 hours to "gel" up. The result is a mousselike, cold solid sprayed right out of the canister. The Espresso is solid enough that you can apparently turn the cup upside down and the espesso won’t fall out as it sticks to the sides of the coffee cup.
