Tassimo to Fuel Kraft Foods Growth

TassimoKraft Foods is getting behind new product ideas to fuel growth, and center stage for Fall 2005 is Tassimo. We reviewed Tassimo last month and have to say - it's quite good. As these large companies start to roll out more and more products in the Single Serve Coffee category, they are going to have to make them great.

Update: You can now order Tassimo at Amazon.com.

Last year we saw the release of the first Home Cafe products and they were not so good. The new Krups Home Cafe is a a much better machine. If these new machines and offerings are to compete - they have to be good right away. It's nice to see Kraft Foods get it right out of the gate with Tassimo.

Coffee Fact Friday: Decaf's Growing Popularity & Origin - Sanka anyone?

PicroseliusFor hundreds of years, if someone ordered a cup of coffee, there was no question about what kind. Now, many Americans prefer their coffee decaffeinated. The ability to make that choice comes from the work of Ludwig Roselius, a coffee merchant in Bremen, Germany. In the early part of the last century, he developed a process that removed 97 percent of the caffeine from coffee beans, without altering their taste. He described the new coffee as "sans caffeine," which he shortened to "Sanka." Today, there's not only a decision to make about regular and decaf, but latte, cappuccino and espresso. Specialty coffee shops are increasingly popular. There are about 7,000 of them, selling $2 billion worth of coffee a year.

Jump for Java Joy! Study Touts Coffee's Benefits

Capt.Sge.Bko54.240805004725.Photo00.Photo.Default-276X344Like we didn't know a perfect cup of coffee didn't produce some key benefits (including piece of mind). :-)

"When the Ink Spots sang "I love the java jive and it loves me" in 1940, they could not have known how right they were. Coffee not only helps clear the mind and perk up the energy, it also provides more healthful antioxidants than any other food or beverage in the American diet, according to a study released Sunday."

Tassimo can make single serve coffee. single serve crema coffee, espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, tea and best of all - HOT CHOCOLATE.

Tassimo will launch at the end of this September with a SRP of $169.99 with coffee T-Discs in the $.50 per cup range and lattes and cappucinnos in the $1.00 per drink range. You can sign up on the Tassimo web site to be notified when Tassimo will be available.

Preview: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Visit

Green Mountain Coffee Visit - 28 On this past Friday, we visited Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in Waterbury, VT. We aren't going to report all of our findings just yet, but we can tell you there are more K-Cup flavors coming like Fair Trade Wild Mountain Blueberry (Blueberry was a seasonal, but now will be permanent addition), a new French Vanilla, and others. The new flavors will be available September 19th.

Also, the Keurig B40 will be available in September at Green Mountain Coffee's web site, and that's just in time for you to pick one up for the holidays or back to school. Best of all, it should be priced at under $100.

On the visit front, I did get to participate in a cupping with two of Green Mountain Coffee Roaster's cuppers. It was a daunting amount of sniffing, coffee crust breaking, and slurping. We also have pictures of many of the machines that make those famous K-Cups.

Stay tuned for the article on the entire visit!
