More Home Café Vanuatu on Survivor!!!

vanuatoa.jpgI told you I would find more stuff on this...

"After their first post-shuffle victory, the new Yasur tribe set off to enjoy their Reward at Home Café Vanuatu. Emotions ran high as the tribemates gathered around a collage of pictures from their respective pasts. As the Yasur tribemates showed each other their loved ones, past glories and even pets, the smell of brewing coffee permeated the makeshift hut. Enjoying coffee, croissants and juice, the Survivors tearfully read letters from home. The Reward served to "recharge the batteries" of the tribe members, even the targeted Rory, who simply exclaimed, "It's a beautiful day on Vanuatu."

Home Café on Survivor!!!

homecafe_thumb.jpgIn what can only be called true product marketing within a show, the Home Cafe from Black&Decker was featured on the CBS show Survivor last night.

The tribe that won the challenge (okay - watch Survivor - I'm not explaining the show here), got to take back to their camp a Home Cafe. The funny thing is - they are on a desert island much like Gilligan & the Skipper lived on. HOW ARE THEY POWERING IT??? was really weird to watch half dress people having single serve coffee.

Click below to visit the Survivor 9 site...I'm sure they'll have video clips showing the Home Cafe.

Instant Coffee?

Well - at least one person gets it right at the end of the article...

"There is no accounting for taste, pay no attention to the "bad coffee' reviews. There is a pod out there for everyone's taste," writes Paul Gooding of Phoenix on "This is the coffee maker of the future."


"New one-cup coffee makers allow you to skip the mess and excess while brewing coffee to suit each drinker. But don't forgo your Starbucks fix just yet."

Yes, You Really Do Need That Coffee

images.jpgIn case you didn't already know...:-)

"Caffeine is the world's most commonly used stimulant, and it's cheap and readily available so people can maintain their use of caffeine quite easily," said Roland Griffiths, a professor of psychiatry and neuroscience who led a review of 170 years' worth of studies on caffeine."

The Future Of Coffee?


"Single-serve pod machines and coffee pods have just hit the Canadian market. There's a battle brewing for control of your morning coffee. Millions have been spent, PR salvos have been fired, yet one question remains: Are Canadians ready for the pod?" - The future of coffee?

Senseo in The Pawtucket Times

pawtucket_pods.jpgRiddle me this...I can't really tell what's going on in this article/ramble from a bunch of women in the Pawtucket Times - but it's funny and informative. I think they pick a product and just talk about it as if they were on a radio show? Wild.

The Pawtucket Times: "Bonnie: Something's brewing in coffee making that's as revolutionary as the Mr. Coffee drip coffeemaker was in the '70s. I'm talking about the new machines that use single-cup filters (aka pods) to take the guesswork out of preparing coffee one or two cups at a time."

Coffee Break: Now, Java in a Pod

coffee.jpgThe New York Times has a killer article on the single serve craze. They cover not ony Senseo - but Nespresso and others. A special thanks to Emmy Abram for sending this in.

"Before leaving for work from her home in the Maryland suburbs, Elisa Diehl likes to have a cup of espresso. But she doesn't have the patience to grind and measure beans for her Nespresso machine, so she uses "pods" — single doses of premeasured coffee in thimble-shape capsules, which she orders by phone or on the Web."
