Well - I've never had a plastic taste from any machine and I've yet to get my hands on the new Gevalia brewer due to the subscription and lack of any way except for snail mail to contact Gevalia. For you Gevalia pod brewing folks - has this happened to you? Read below and answer in the comments section to help out our poor reader and this "plastic" situation.

CoffeeWhiz.com is a new supersite featuring Keurig K-Cups and also various pods for Single Serve Coffee makers. The one that I'm most excited about is the availability of Gevalia pods on their site. Instead of having to sign up at the Gevalia site for their coffee club, you can buy the pods direct from CoffeeWhiz.com.

Has anyone tried this new maker? It looks a little bit like a Senseo that someone pulled out of shape. Hmmm...
Severin Cafe 2:
With this new coffeemaker from Severin, the Cafe 2, you can use all your favorite coffee pods, but the machine also comes with a re-usable coffee filter, which is especially made for this machine. The choice is yours! Availabe in Black and White.

We're really excited to share all this single serve coffee news and reviews, but we've got even more to share in the upcoming months. We'll be doing more K-Cup reviews, coffee pod reviews, and other single serve coffee and one cup reviews. Also we are expecting the category of single serve coffee to grow 2x over the coming year based on traffic and interest here.
What do you think? Will Single Serve Coffee continue to grow and prosper? We think you should sound off in the comments and let us know your thoughts.
Thank god they're keeping the Senseo brand. :-)
Philadelphia Inquirer | 04/05/2005 | The Motley Fool Take The New Sara Lee:
Sara Lee will spin off into a new company consisting of businesses that account for about 40 percent of its annual revenue, such as its Champion and Hanes apparel brands. It will also sell three other units, including its U.S. retail coffee segment, although it will retain its new Senseo coffee brand. Sara Lee has been reworking its mix for some time, most notably through the spin-off of its Coach leather goods business. It will soon be focused on just food, beverages and household products.
CBS News | Java Nirvana In Your Kitchen | March 21, 2005 13:00:03:
This Museum-of-Modern-Art-style pod machine controls the temperature of the water, the type of grind of the coffee, how long the water is exposed to the coffee, and locks in the flavor with the frothy layer. In addition to the existing pods, new pods developed for Senseo will hit the market this spring. They are Killarney Irish Creamery, Paris Vanilla Bistro and Vienna Hazelnut Waltz. Current flavors: Dark, Medium, Light, and Decaf roasts. Senseo retails for 69.99. A bag of 18 pods costs $3.99-$4.99. That's 22-28 cents a cup.
New York City - Restaurants and Dining:
These so-called “single-cup” machines arrive into a coffee culture that has become spoiled about the quality of their java, thanks to Starbucks and other luxury-coffee outlets. Using various forms of coffee software - pods, discs, capsules - these high-tech devices make the old stove-top espresso boiler or French press brewer positively primitive by comparison. One of the products, in fact, reads a bar code on the coffee capsule to determine how much water to pump through.

A built in Keurig eh? That would be pretty darn cool. We're still enjoying the B50 here at Single Serve Coffee.com and I'm glad to see them partner with a nice high end appliance maker like Jenn-Air - I think I smell a hit!
"Building on its 40-year heritage of producing high-end cooking appliances, Jenn-Air® announced today its partnership with Keurig, Inc.™, the leading single-cup brewing system in the U.S., to license Keurig’s patented single-cup brewing technology for Jenn-Air’s first coffee maker – as part of its Jenn-Air™ Attrezzi™ line of small appliances."
More after the jump.

A reader has alerted us that Target has created a house brand of single serve coffee pods. They are priced about what you would expect at ~.24 cents a piece and under the name of "Archer". Has anyone else seen these pods at their local Target? I can't even find the pods at Target.com. Hmmm...
