Community Coffee seems to keep popping up in my world this week. I was searching for on Chicory coffee in Louisiana - to see if Cafe Du Monde made pods (just hoping but no go). Well - that search has landed me on Community Coffee and they do make coffee pods and are also a local Louisiana favorite.
Then last night we were dining at Magnolia's here in Boston (a Louisiana influenced creole menu and just amazing), I was surprised to find out that they served Community Coffee's chicory blend, and not Cafe Du Monde's coffee. I got into a rather long discussion with the waitress and then the owner about the pros-and-cons of both varieties, and I have to say the Community Coffee chicory blend we had wasn't bad.
Okay - now for the pod news. Community Coffee has got 4 coffee pod flavors right now. I'll see what I can drum up for samples to review. Seems the pods only work in the Bunn My Cafe - but if we get them to review, I'll try them out in the Senseo and others.
"Brew a distinctive cup of coffee or tea every time with Community Coffee one-cup pods. Individually wrapped for ultimate freshness, each pod has just the right amount of premium arabica coffee to brew the perfect cup. Enjoy one of your favorite varieties today."

We've been trying to get our hands on a Nespresso machine for a few weeks now. This is in the same league of cost and machine as the FrancisFrancis!, and more like the Keurig or Tassimo machine because of the Nespresso cup/pod that the machine uses. The new Romeo is quite the machine - inspired from Romeo & Juliet. As you can see in the picture - you put the Nespresso pod in the machine at the top, and the coffee comes out to meet your cup below.
Very cool. :-)

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.

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.
