We started our morning out with a chilly 5 mile run followed by a cup of our favorite single serve coffee - 100% KONA blend from Green Mountain. We have lots on tap for 2014 and it’s our 10th anniversary in May. We simply can’t believe it’s been 10 years since we launched Single Serve Coffee. 10 years is a long time, but we can imagine another 10 years of blogging ahead and enjoying lots more coffee. Thanks to everyone for contributing all of your news and cheer in 2013, and we expect even more contributors to step up in 2014 so we can bring you the news everyday.
Raise your cup to 2014 - this year is going to be EPIC!

Apparently Dunkin' Donuts had their own breakfast cereal on the USA grocery store market back in 1988-89. SH bought a book for a cereal-addicted friend who wants to open up his own "cereal store" some day and was surprised to see this listed. It’s a bummer the cereal wasn’t sugar frosted mini-chocolate donuts, but we’re assuming the mini-chocolate Os are probably sugary enough. We love the FREE flashlight as long as you can get through two boxes of this cereal. And there is of course the Dunkin’ Donuts spokesperson with that famous moustache.
"The Great American Cereal Book: How Breakfast Got Its Crunch” is available on Amazon.com, and it features many other cereals you probably have been missing.

Presented with very little comment, it looks like Dunkin’ Donuts is tapping into the feeling most New Englanders have about Starbucks coffee. Thanks to AB for sending this in - my grandfather who spent every morning having coffee and a donut at Dunkin’ Donuts is smiling from the afterlife.

AB from Main has spotted while shopping at Shaw’s today in Bangor Maine two new offering from Green Mountain Coffee. Green Mountain has decided to jump on the iced beverage bandwagon and offer two new drinks - Espresso Iced Latte in Vanilla and Mocha. The come in 50.7 oz containers and run $4.99.
It makes sense from a branding and drink alternative to their current single serve coffee offerings. If Starbucks and other coffee houses are going to have iced beverages available the Green Mountain brand must be at the same level and offer the same drinks. We're imagining these two iced coffee drinks are not made by Green Mountain directly, and a third party relationship has evolved to create them.
Are you currently enjoying any of the iced coffees in your local grocery store? We're partial to many of the iced offerings from Starbucks, and there are a few others we've been interested in. Sound off and let us know if you'll be trying out 50.7 oz of vanilla and mocha lattes. In the mean time we'll be on the look out for these two lattes, and can't wait to pour a single serve coffee glass full.

The latimes.com has found another great single serve coffee product - The Humble Cup. It's an instant pour-over coffee filter and dripper all in one. You open the Humble Cup and attach it to your coffee cup and add hot water. In a few minutes you'll have amazing coffee.
The Humble Cup is highly portable, and packaged in a sturdy foil-lined paper packet. Since it's one cup of coffee in a packet, you can take one just about anywhere you want to bring one, and all you need is hot water when you arrive at your destination.
We're not sure of the Humble Cup's nationwide plans, but right now it's available in the LA area. It's one of those great ideas that could be really great for local roasters to get their fresh roasted coffees in a more portable format.

The Ministry of Supply has funded on Kickstarter a project to make your feet a little fresher - Carbonized Coffee-infused socks. They claim it's like a Brita filter in your shoe. If you're tired of stinky feet that are also in pain, then your socks are to blame. We're big on running and cycling and can assure you if you don't have the right socks the job will take a lot more pain and effort to get done and be uber stinky. The Ministry of Supply takes this same approach to your long work day, and the Atlas filter in the socks will get your day complete with a freshness unmatched by other socks.

The Sugar Lab has taken 3D printing to the next logical level by using sugar and cool shapes that we're craving to have in our coffee. Confectionary treats always seem to be on the cutting edge 3D shapes from lollipops of amazing shapes to printed cookies so it's not surprising someone decided to get into the 3D printed sugar business. The entire project has taken over 2 years to come to fruition, but we think the results speak for themselves.

If you've been wondering how many calories are in your average Starbucks raspberry scone (480 calories actually), then as of last week on June 25th you could stop wondering. Starbucks has made the change ahead of an expected move by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that would force chains with 20 or more locations to make similar disclosures by the end of the year.
