Senseo Coming to an American Bed & Breakfast Near You

Brilliant. In all my travels through Europe, there was always either a Senseo or some other little coffee machine in the room. Though only the Senseo coffee was amazing, it was great to see and taste all the other coffees. Now iLoveInns.com has teamed up with Sara Lee to install 2000 Senseos and sample 700,000 coffee pods to tourists in bed and breakfasts across the US. Knowing I might get a better cup of coffee at a B&B - that might make me stay in them more often.

The other really cool thing about this piece of news, they also seem to be sampling new blends for feedback! Perhaps they will sample a breakfast blend?

CoffeeGo: Single Serve Coffee Bar

Coffeego I can't say we've tried these CoffeeGo bars, but they do look yummy. Coffee in bar form? how can you go wrong. What's really interesting is a cup of coffee has 100mg of caffeine and these bars only have 6g. That's just not going to cut it on the caffeine front for me.

Free Sample: Kenco Caffè Crema Pods

Light And DecafSign up at Kencocoffeepods.com and they will send you a set of Free Kenco Coffee pods. I haven't tried these yet, so I'm signing up right now. I'm not sure that these pods will work in your standard Home Cafe or Senseo, it appear they will work in a "cafe crema machine". This is what the faq says, "Kenco Caffè Crema pods can be used in any coffee pod crema machines, as well as in any espresso machine with a pump pressure of 10 bar or more." So, I'm thinking Espresso machine. Look - they're free. Sign up and then see what happens. :-)

Update: Looks like these are only available to UK customers. Try it out and see if they'll send it.

Tassimo from Kraft To Be Made in US

tassimo_us.jpgOkay - I'm not an avid reader of Plastics & Rubber Weekly, but it does look like they have some great news for those of you interested in Tassimo. Tassimo is doing so well in Europe that 3 new sites in Germany are adding machines to produce more Tassimos for Europe. And best of all? The company making Tassimo for the US is buying a factory to make the Tassimo stateside. With the job cuts at General Motors of 25,000 jobs, this is great news for workers here in the US. Maybe it will not only make a great latte, but perhaps also support the lives of a few American workers who have been displaced by this so-so economy.

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

Traveling Coffee Pod Style

LogoTopnav LogoWe're traveling today to visit both Baronet Coffee and Cool Beans Pods in Hartford, CT. Expect a full report of all things Coffee Pod coming out of these visits. We hope to capture live coffee pod making in action - or at least some coffee roasting! We'll have pictures, pods, and more to report in the coming weeks.

Update: Just got out of a fascinating two hour tour (no not Gilligan's Island) of Baronet Coffee. In a word - amazing. Not only did we get to see the entire coffee pod making process, but we sampled a ton of new and interesting Single Serve Coffee pod flavors. We'll have tons to report in the next week about the entire visit. We also sampled their espresso line of coffee pods, and boy are they yummy! I think I'm a little too wired to drink any coffee for at least 2 hours! Onto Cool Beans!
