More on the new Home Cafe Coffee Pod brewer from Krups coming this fall. Also - this is a killer run down of the current state of the single serve set of brewers available.
CBS News | Java Nirvana In Your Kitchen | March 21, 2005 13:00:03:
Coffee Giant Krups is introducing a brand new pod machine called the Krups Home Cafe, at the Housewares trade show in Chicago. Gregg offered a sneak peek with a single-cup coffee brewer that uses pressure-brewing technology. Specially designed Millstone coffee pods can brew either one or two cups of coffee at a time. This model also allows consumers to customize the amount and flavor of their coffee by setting the system for a 6 oz. or 9 oz. cup of coffee or even up to a full 18 oz. travel mug. The cups can even be of different flavors, thanks to two independent pod holders. Retails for $150.

I’m not one for self congratulations but this morning I realized our 1 year anniversary has already past us! I posted our first entry on May 1st of last year in preparation for the launch of Philips Senseo and it was also our first review! A year ago as well, there was but 2 or three single serve coffee pod makers - now there are tons. Since then we've done over 50+ reviews, and written just north of 227 articles for you to sink your teeth into.

Starbucks has finally put out some coffee pods, but I'm pretty sure these are espresso pods, and not meant to be used with your Home Cafe or Senseo type pod machines. I'll see if I can get a sample of these and find out. If they are ESE or espresso pods, I'll have to fire up the Francis Francis and see how they taste. Thanks to Joe for sending in this news tip!
Update: Indeed these are Espresso Pods and not for use with Home Cafe or Senseo. I will review these in the upcoming weeks with the Francis Francis machine or another one of the Espresso Pod machines that are coming in for review. Thanks to everyone writing in to let me know what these pods will fit in.

That was fast! We've got a whole bunch of the two blends to try over the next week or so thanks to Jim Evans at CoffeeWhiz.com.
We haven't put them on a scale to test the 20% extra - but I'm sure we'll be able to tell when we compare against a regular Sumatra K-Cup or Dark Blend.

I'd heard through the grape vine that Green Mountain was going to add some coffee to their K-Cups but had no idea they would add 20% more coffee. We were very pleased with the Green Mountain blends when we reviewed the Keurig B50 last year, but I'm really excited to try out the 20 percent more coffee in each K-Cup. I know that I prefer a stronger cup of coffee over a light roast - this should be interesting to see if dark coffee drinkers really think this new K-Cup meets their expectations.
Green Mountain Coffee Introduces ''Extra Bold'' K-Cups for Keurig Single-Cup Brewers:

WATERBURY, Vt.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2005--Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMCR) today introduced "Extra Bold" K-Cups(TM) in two varieties of coffee: Dark Magic and Fair Trade Certified(TM) Organic Sumatran Reserve. A K-Cup holds a single serving of ground coffee or tea. It is inserted into the Keurig(R) Single-Cup Brewer to create a fresh cup of coffee or tea in seconds. Single-cup brewers have been available in offices for years and are rapidly gaining acceptance in the home market.
Well - the folks over at Treehugger are obviously a little perturbed with this Self-Heating Can from Wolfgang Puck, but I have to say I'm impressed regardless of the implementation of this being disposable - which I don't agree with in an enviromental sense.
However, a small portable self-heating instant espresso/Single Serve Coffee machine that makes one cup would be fabulous. I really have enjoyed the Wolfgang Puck pods - I will have to try this and see if it's any good at all (yes - I will try anything coffee related and single serve).
Via Treehugger: Wolfgang Puck Disposable Instant-hot Latte:
So California company OnTech spent 7 years and 24 million bucks to develop a coffee can filled with quicklime so that you can have a hot latte in seven minutes. Its market: “the people who want to have hot coffee in their car without going anywhere or cooking anything at home” says OnTech Prez Jonathan Weisz.
