''Extra Bold'' K-Cups for Keurig Single-Cup Brewers Coming From Green Mountain Coffee

ViewmediaI'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.

Wolfgang Puck Disposable Instant-hot Latte

LatteWell - 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.

Update: You can view our full review of the Wolfgang Puck Instant Hot Latte and where to get the Wolfgang Instant Hot Latte there as well.

Wolfgang Puck Rodeo Drive Light Roast Coffee Pod Review

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 0101Jim Evans from CoffeeWhiz.com sent us an entire set of Wolfgang Puck Coffee pods to review. We've sampled all of them but will focus on the Wolfgang Puck Rodeo Drive Light Roast coffee pods for this review. I have to say right up front though, I was surprised to find the Wolfgang Puck pods to be pretty darn good.

Img 0106The Wolfgang Puck Rodeo Drive are light roast coffee pods. I can easily say not everyone wants a big - dark roasted cup of coffee, and some mornings I just want a light cup of coffee. I've never been much of a fan of the Light Roast Senseo pods, or many of the Folgers, Millstone, or other pods that are lighter in nature, so after tasting this coffee from Wolfgang Puck I was surprised how much I liked it.

New Krups Home Café Coming in June 2005

Krups Home CafeThe Krups Home Café system will offer unique features including dual-cup capacity, several cup-size options and a built-in water filtration system. The Krups Home Café model can brew either one or two cups of coffee at a time, and with two independent pod holders, each cup can be a different variety of creamy or black coffee.

The original Home Café machines have received mixed reviews from us and from Single Serve Coffee readers (we reviewed the Mr. Coffee Home Café and the Black & Decker Home Café machines). I'm hoping that many of the issues with the first Home Café macines have been fixed, and so far - it looks like many have.

We should receive a review machine in the mid-late June time frame, and will let you know when this new single serve coffee machine arrives.

Senseo To Accommodate Larger Sized Mugs

P35723ZLooks like you large mug toting Single Serve Coffee drinkers will get your prayers answered. This Fall, The Senseo will be updated with a new shorter spout to accommodate larger sized mugs.

Single Serve Coffee.com: Will there be an update to the Senseo this Fall?

Senseo: As you know, we have 94% of Senseo purchasers that say they are very or extremely satisfied with Senseo. With that said, we are making a change that we expect to bring this number even higher. We will be shortening the spout to accommodate larger coffee mugs. The new height will allow the consumer to fit over 90% of coffee mugs underneath the spout.

That's great news! I can't say that I don't love my Senseo almost completely, but I could love it even more if it fit a larger sized mug. I'll have even more updates from my discussion with the Senseo folks soon.

Gourmet Coffee Café

CafeAnnouncing the Gourmet Coffee Café! A pod brewer with a unique twist - it's got a milk-steamer! The Gourmet Coffee Café also has a coffee club. This machine seems to use coffee pods but also they offer tea pods for use in the brewer. I think we are going to see many more machines of this type, as the lines blur between the ESE machines and the single serve brewers.

Also of note, you really need to watch the 30 second demo reel of the Gourmet Coffee Cafe. I don't think I've ever seen a 3D/Real World demo clip of a machine quite as entertaining.

Tassimo News from Reader

Tassimo LargeNews is filtering in as Kraft prepares to launch the Tassimo in the U.S. this Fall. I've been sifting through the reader mails and comments and this post has the most information I've seen yet.

P. Love writes in about the Tassimo:

"Just had the opportunity to see and taste the espresso, coffee, tea and hot chocolate line available wtih the Tassimo Coffee Machine. I am in love! Great for family or small office applications. We even experimented and made a cafe mocha! According to the info I was given, the product will be available through major retailers this fall, in the US at a price of $169.00. The water carafe will be larger that the one on the European model and will have a filtration system. The machines ran non stop at the FMI Trade Show, held recently in Chicago, IL.

According to those working the show there were very few problems with the machine, even running them all the time. The single serve disks will be packaged 8 or 16 to a package and the average cup of espresso will be approximately .30 a cup. (Compare that to Starbucks!) The tassimo will also accomodate travel mugs as well as your small espresso or demitasse cup. I can't wait! It is already on my wish list!"
