Happy Birthday Single Serve Coffee 2005

Thumb-Birthday.JpgI’m not one for self congratulations but this morning I realized our 1 year anniversary has already past us! I posted our first entry on May 1st of last year in preparation for the launch of Philips Senseo and it was also our first review! 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 Espresso Roast Coffee Pods Available

313025Starbucks 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.

Coffee Pod Waste Bin Review from Single Serve Coffee

Review from Single Serve - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 0050Living was kind enough to send along a Coffee Pod Waste Bin from Brabantia. This little gem of a Coffee Pod "Trash Can" hits the mark. It's the right size for slamming a wet pod holder on the top of it and having the pod land at the bottom. It's also stainless steel and washes up after you try and fill it to the rim with 10 or so pods. Also - the black top rim can be removed so you can put both in the dishwasher if you really want that deep clean.

''Extra Bold'' K-Cups for Keurig Arrive for Review

Img 0228That was fast! We've got a whole bunch of the two blends to try over the next week or so thanks to Jim Evans at

We haven't put them on a scale to test the 20% extra - but I'm sure we'll be able to tell when we compare against a regular Sumatra K-Cup or Dark Blend.

Stay Tuned!

''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 Pod ReviewsImg 0101Jim Evans from 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.
