Tassimo has arrived! If you aren't familiar with Tassimo, Tassimo is a new single serve coffee brewer & system from Braun and Kraft. The Tassimo does not use coffee pods or K-Cups, but a new hot beverage brewing system in the form of T-Discs. Each T-Disc has a bar code on it to tell the machine how the hot beverage of your choice needs to be prepared. Tassimo is also the first single serve coffee system to have liquid milk instead of powdered milk to make cappuccinos and lattes. Tassimo can make single serve coffee. single serve crema coffee, espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, tea and best of all - HOT CHOCOLATE.
Update: You can now order Tassimo at Amazon.com.
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.
We will be testing the machine over the next few weeks and will let you know how the Tassimo fares.
Update 12/07/2005: Read our full review of the Tassimo from Single Serve coffee.com
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!
It's back to school time once again and many of your returning college students or college students themselves will need coffee that's quick and easy to make in their college apartment or college dorm.

"I like Single Serve Coffee.com because they always have such a wide variety of coffee and low prices. They introduce you to many coffee pods that can't be found in stores. I love my coffee pods and for a single person one cup at a time is better than a whole pot you wind up pouring down the drain."

We know they make K-Cups and Coffee Pods and also pretty amazing coffee - but what else don't we know?
I'm visiting Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in Waterbury, VT this Friday and I'm giving YOU the chance to ask Green Mountain Coffee Roasters questions you want answers to.
Some Questions: What other flavors are coming out in K-Cups? What is your coffee pod strategy?
Any questions within reason you ask - I'll try and get answers to. I promise. :-)

We wanted to let you know the Single Serve Coffee BETA Forums are open. We wanted to provide a place for extended conversations, unlike comments on all the articles where it's mostly single threaded, the forums provide a place you could talk about coffee pods until you were so wired on caffeine you might just write your own reviews!
We're calling them BETA as it's the latest fad in putting up software for people to use while you make it look nice and fix all the things the community wants before going "LIVE", but we assure you it's very useable and very good looking already.
So visit the forums, sign up and register, and talk with other single serve coffee readers.
