Pods, packets taking Joe in new direction

55 Side Noback-1-1

The Chicago Tribune has an excellent overview of the state of the pod. We love these newspaper articles as they are always so - well - chuck full of recaps we've been doing daily for the past 1.5 years. It's hard to believe so many people are still unaware of the convenience and great coffee single serve coffee can bring them daily - but we'll take more converts any time.

Phil Timberman believes his single-serve coffeemaker is the greatest improvement in brewing since the percolator was invented in 1865. "No more trying to figure out how many beans to grind or measure out. Pop in a pod, hit a button and get a great cup of Joe," the coffee lover said. Rolled out last year, the first generation of single-serve machines makes little more than coffee. The next-generation machines, which are being introduced in time for the holiday season, do a bit more. They claim to make coffee-shop-quality coffee, lattes, cappuccino, hot chocolate and tea. And some of the nation's biggest food and candy companies, including Kraft Foods Inc., Sara Lee Corp., Mars Inc. and Procter & Gamble Co. are staking millions in marketing dollars on a product they hope could emulate the success of bottled water.

Single Serve Coffee Holiday Gift Guide

HolidayshoppingguideThe world of Single Serve Coffee can be a bit overwhelming when trying to find the right gift for that special someone over the holidays. We've put together a price based gift guide along with our reviews and thoughts on the coffee drinker you might be buying for this holiday season.

Over $500 - Nespresso Romeo Bundle - Review

We recommend the Nespresso Romeo. It comes with a set of Nespresso capsules that you just can't beat for flavor and taste.

Total: $800 in Kitchen & Housewares

If the higher priced Romeo is too much but you still want to go with the Nespresso take at look at the Nespresso Essenza for $179.99

$225 - Bunn My Cafe Bundle - Review

We recommend the Bunn My Cafe coffee brewer and a set of the Aloha Island Coffee pods. If you want to get into the world of higher end coffee pod based machines you can't get much better than the Bunn.

Total: $199.99+35.95-$25 Off in Kitchen & Housewares + FREE Shipping = $210.94

$150 and Under - Keurig B50 Bundle - Keurig Impressions

We recommend the Keurig B50 and a set of the Dark Magic Roast K-Cups from Green Mountain. We've enjoyed the auto-on feature of the B50 and the diversity of coffee you can get from Green Mountain, Timothy's, Van Houtte, and other roasters.

Total: 149.95 + 9.95 - 25 Off in Kitchen & Housewares + FREE Shipping = $134.90

Under $100 - Senseo Bundle - Review

We recommend the Senseo (in black of course) and a extra set of Senseo Dark Roast pods. The Senseo is a great all around brewer. We've had our Senseo for two years and it's still going strong.

Total: $49.50 + $16.99 + FREE Shipping = $76.49

Coffee Gadgets & Accessories

We think you'll love frothing milk or making hot milk with your single serve coffee. We love our BonJour Caffe Froth Turbo at $12.99 it's a perfect stocking stuffer. We also love the Froth Xpress for making hot milk!

NBC's 'The Apprentice: Martha Stewart' Features Tassimo

It's nice to see another year and some more product placement of single serve coffee machines. Last year the cast of Survivor was treated to the Home Cafe somehow powered by a "stump" with an outlet in the great outdoors. This years single serve coffee maker has what we would call better digs - on the Apprentice with the queen of all things good and proper and yummy - Martha Stewart. If you were fortunate to see The Apprentice last night then I believe you saw Tassimo.

Only weeks away from theprogram's season finale, the seven remaining candidates on "The Apprentice:Martha Stewart" try once again to outshine each other and ultimately receive acoveted position with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia tonight on NBC from 9 -10PM ET/PT. On tonight's episode two teams race to create what they believeis the ultimate retail space to sell one of the hottest products to hit themarket this year - the Tassimo Hot Beverage System from Kraft Foods.

A dream machine for holiday entertaining and the perfect holiday gift,Tassimo is a unique system that allows consumers to prepare an assortment ofhot beverages including coffee, tea, espresso, hot chocolate and evencappuccino and latte with real milk, all conveniently at home.

simplehuman Single Cup Pod Brewer

P-Coffee-Pod-Brewersimplehuman has just announced their new single serve coffee brewer. The new simplehuman brewer features a 42 oz. water tank, brews 5 oz or 8 oz cups of coffee, and fits all standard-size pods (we're thinking 62 mm - Senseo sized pods). The simplehuman single cup pod brewer also comes with two pod holders - one for coffee and one for tea. The brewer is priced at $129.99 and FREE shipping is included.

simplehuman has also partnered with Molto coffee to create a new line of coffee and tea pods. Each pod comes individually wrapped to preserve the coffee freshness. Coffee and Tea pods are packed in a sleeve box and priced at $5.99 for 14 pods.

The following coffees and teas are available now:

  • Costa Rican French Roast (dark)
  • Sumatra Mandheling (medium)
  • Breakfast Blend (light)
  • French Vanilla (flavored)
  • Decaf Columbian Earl Grey (tea)

If the quality of their other kitchen items is any indication, we're pretty confident simplehuman should get it right. We've reviewed several of their kitchen products at Kitchen Contraptions and have found them all to be very well designed and of high quality.
