Dunkin' Donuts - Friends Don't Let Friends Drink Starbucks

Dunkin Donuts Friends Dont Let Friends Drink Starbucks

Presented with very little comment, it looks like Dunkin’ Donuts is tapping into the feeling most New Englanders have about Starbucks coffee. Thanks to AB for sending this in - my grandfather who spent every morning having coffee and a donut at Dunkin’ Donuts is smiling from the afterlife.

Green Mountain Iced Espresso Latte Drinks in Mocha and Vanilla

Green Mountain Iced Espresso Latte Vanilla Mocha

 

AB from Main has spotted while shopping at Shaw’s today in Bangor Maine two new offering from Green Mountain Coffee. Green Mountain has decided to jump on the iced beverage bandwagon and offer two new drinks - Espresso Iced Latte in Vanilla and Mocha. The come in 50.7 oz containers and run $4.99.

It makes sense from a branding and drink alternative to their current single serve coffee offerings. If Starbucks and other coffee houses are going to have iced beverages available the Green Mountain brand must be at the same level and offer the same drinks. We're imagining these two iced coffee drinks are not made by Green Mountain directly, and a third party relationship has evolved to create them.

Are you currently enjoying any of the iced coffees in your local grocery store? We're partial to many of the iced offerings from Starbucks, and there are a few others we've been interested in. Sound off and let us know if you'll be trying out 50.7 oz of vanilla and mocha lattes. In the mean time we'll be on the look out for these two lattes, and can't wait to pour a single serve coffee glass full.

The Humble Cup - Single Serve Pour-Over Coffee Packet

The Humble Cup Single Serve Coffee Pourover packetPhoto (Betty Hallock / Los Angeles Times)

The latimes.com has found another great single serve coffee product - The Humble Cup. It's an instant pour-over coffee filter and dripper all in one. You open the Humble Cup and attach it to your coffee cup and add hot water. In a few minutes you'll have amazing coffee.

The Humble Cup is highly portable, and packaged in a sturdy foil-lined paper packet. Since it's one cup of coffee in a packet, you can take one just about anywhere you want to bring one, and all you need is hot water when you arrive at your destination.

We're not sure of the Humble Cup's nationwide plans, but right now it's available in the LA area. It's one of those great ideas that could be really great for local roasters to get their fresh roasted coffees in a more portable format.

Atlas Carbonized Coffee-infused Socks - Perfect for Stinky Feet

Atlas Carbonized Coffee Infused Socks

The Ministry of Supply has funded on Kickstarter a project to make your feet a little fresher - Carbonized Coffee-infused socks. They claim it's like a Brita filter in your shoe. If you're tired of stinky feet that are also in pain, then your socks are to blame. We're big on running and cycling and can assure you if you don't have the right socks the job will take a lot more pain and effort to get done and be uber stinky. The Ministry of Supply takes this same approach to your long work day, and the Atlas filter in the socks will get your day complete with a freshness unmatched by other socks.

3D Printed Sugar Is Incredible

3dprintedsugar.jpg

The Sugar Lab has taken 3D printing to the next logical level by using sugar and cool shapes that we're craving to have in our coffee. Confectionary treats always seem to be on the cutting edge 3D shapes from lollipops of amazing shapes to printed cookies so it's not surprising someone decided to get into the 3D printed sugar business. The entire project has taken over 2 years to come to fruition, but we think the results speak for themselves.

Starbucks Calorie Counts On All US Store Menus

Enhanced buzz 23751 1371571445 21

If you've been wondering how many calories are in your average Starbucks raspberry scone (480 calories actually), then as of last week on June 25th you could stop wondering. Starbucks has made the change ahead of an expected move by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that would force chains with 20 or more locations to make similar disclosures by the end of the year.

Starbucks Raising Prices 1% Nationwide This Week

Starbucks

Oh it's happening and it's going to cost you pennies right out of your pocket for that yummy latte at Starbucks. Medium and large brewed coffee won't be affected but other drinks will. So mark down your current price and or look it up on that smart phone of yours to see how bad the damage is. We hope everyone can make it through the week with this horrible news kicking it off.

Coffee-Powered Car Breaks World Record

Coffeepoweredcar 2013
No that's not the Doc from Back to the Future
in the back of the coffee powered truck.

TIME.com has  pretty interesting feature on a converted Ford pickup truck called the Coffee Car Mark 2 which is the world’s fastest coffee-powered vehicle. This is how they did the coffee to powering the truck translation.

  • The owner installed a charcoal stove on the car, which breaks down coffee-bean chaff  into carbon monoxide and hydrogen. 
  • The gas is cooled and filtered, and the hydrogen is used to power a modified gasoline engine. 
  • The coffee car hit a top speed of 65 m.p.h. in the presence of a Guinness adjudicator at Woodford Airfield in Manchester, England, on Feb. 19.

Perhaps this could be the solution we need to finally rid ourselves of not only by-products of coffee making, but other things as well. The only problem we see - emissions are not going to past muster with everyone driving around with coffee powered cars. :-) Full video after the jump.
