Senseo Sweet Mandarin Pre-Order Available

Senseoorange11Philips has announced yet another Limited Edition Senseo Color - SWEET MANDARIN! I have to admit, I'm really jealous of the variety of colors and models available in Europe. You can pre-order it now and be one of the first to get this brand new Senseo color from Typical Dutch Stuff.

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!"

Senseo City Sensations Arrive for Review

Img 0131Well - it seemed to take forever but the City Sensations arrived for review. I've already had a nice cup this morning of the Paris - Vanilla flavored blend.

The most surprising thing - the packaging. It's really quite nice. Expect a full review later in the week.

CoolBrew Coffee

CbphotoAmy writes in that CoolBrew Coffee is the wave of the single serve coffee future! Add a shot to your fresh brewed single serve coffee, and enjoy the fresh coffee or Coffee & Chicory (go to New Orleans and you'll know what Chicory is) to that fresh brewed cup! I have to say I'm a little skeptical, but I'm sure Amy will write us on her experiences with fresh brewed CoolBrew coffee!

CoolBrew Coffee :
CoolBrew® Coffee and Coffee & Chicory is the most exciting advancement in coffee since its discovery! It is concentrated gourmet coffee essence, brewed by our special CoolBrew® Process. The beauty of CoolBrew® is that you can have a delicious cup of gourmet flavored coffee (Hot or Iced!) in seconds, without the mess or hassle of brewing coffee. CoolBrew® is NOT instant coffee. It is FRESH coffee in an Instant! Just 1/2 to 1 ounce of CoolBrew® gives you a delicious, strong, flavor-full cup of Hot or Iced Coffee! If you're one who likes a milder brew, 1/2 ounce will be sufficient.

Aloha Island Kona-Pods Dark Roast Review

Review from Single Serve - Coffee Pod ReviewsKp205.250
The folks at Aloha Island Coffee sent along a sampler pack of their new pods and roasts for us to try at Single Serve I enjoyed the pods just close to a year ago when Single Serve got started.

The pods back then were packed more like an espresso ESE pod, and now they are packed more like a Senseo/Home Cafe style pod.

Rating the one-cup coffee maker helps you brew: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

P35722ZA nice round up on the current offerings in the single serve coffee world.

Rating the one-cup coffee maker helps you brew: South Florida Sun-Sentinel:
Single-serve coffeepots may seem counter-intuitive. For centuries, we've brewed a whole pot over the campfire, over the stove, in a countertop appliance. But we drink coffee one cup at a time, so why not make it one cup at a time? Fill the water reservoir, pop the premeasured packet of coffee in the unit, press a button, and water flows through the grounds. In about a minute, you have a steaming hot cuppa joe.
