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.

Podhead.com Pods Arrive for Review

Logo No EseThe folks over at Podhead.com have sent us a sample of their Sensation pods for Senseo & Bunn My Cafe, along with a sampling of pods for the Melitta One:One. We will be reviewing these pods over the next few weeks. So far - we are really enjoying the Arabica Mix in the Bunn My Cafe.

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.

Senseo Sweet Mandarin Pre-Order Available

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!"
