I have a new coffee machine...

Steve Garfield of Off On a Tangent fame - writes in that his 79 year old mother - Mildred Garfield has in fact received a Senseo from her son Steve. She loves it!!! She claims that she is the oldest person blogging on the web, if that holds true - she may in fact be able to add that she is the oldest Senseo reviewer on the web as well.

Here I am writing about coffee again. I had a birthday last week and my son and daughter in-law gave me a Senseo Coffee Machine. With this product you can have a perfect cup of coffee every time. You can make one cup, two cups or one mug in just a few seconds. Another great feature about this coffemaker is there's no pot to wash, you just have to rinse the coffee pod holder. "

Sam's Club Carrying Large Reservoir Senseo

My mom sent me photos of the Large Reservoir Senseo she just bought at Sam's Club. Seems to cost $69.97 - however she got it for $59.97 - it was the price leader for the day!!!

Includes the following:

• Over-sized water reservoir, so several cups can be made
• Three bags of coffee pods included
• Model: HD7811/75S

Note the model number is also different as well - the standard Senseo is the HD7810. Thanks to Nadiene Brewer (MY MOM!!!) for sending this in.

Mr Coffee Joins the Single Serve Coffee Craze

mrcoffee_homecafe.jpgThe Home Cafe brewer continues to get more coffee brands behind it. This article outlines some interesting background on the coffee maker. It's also quite interesting to see how the Keurig has high end coffee in its lineup and the Home Cafe brewer has more "grocery" branded coffee. I wonder who will win?

"In an era of caffeine-fuelled international tension, it is no surprise that Mister Coffee (the coffee service) gets on the nerves of Mr. Coffee (the coffee machine). Now this.

Bob Hale, the tinkering mind behind Toronto-based Mister Coffee & Services Inc., is betting millions of dollars on a machine he hopes will make you a really drinkable cup of coffee at the office -- a cup at a time, any time.

Which Single Serve Coffee Maker is Best?

Lisa writes us with a question we have all been trying to anwer...

"I am just now researching the single-serving coffee maker. I am interested to know which one folks think is the best regardless of price. I have been looking at the senseo and the B&D HCC100. They both seem to have issues. Does anyone know of one that is "perfect?"
What do you think? Comments below...

More Keurig Feedback

kcupbrewer.jpgDan Winkler writes in with some very interesting feedback on owning a Keurig.

"I own a Keurig and use it every day. I like the green tea and peppermint herbal tea.

They offer several kinds of green tea and my favorite is the Celestial Seasonings. Compared to a green tea bag, it is remakably lacking of any bitter taste. Could this be a result of no oxidation? The k-cups are packed in nitrogen, which is air without oxygen, so no oxidation occurs.

I also make a lot of Green Mountain decaf coffee.

I love the convenience of a quick cuppa from this thing. My major complaint is that I wish it could make stronger coffee.

The other downsides are:

1. It's a lot more expensive than the pod machines.

2. It stays on all the time and so draws power periodically. This is how it's ready to brew at a moment's notice.

3. It makes an annoying boiling sound for a few seconds every couple of minutes. I wish they had insulated the water tank better so it wouldn't have to heat so often. I also wish they would heat to a temperature less than boiling so it wouldn't make noise. It makes the lights flicker in my house (the ones on a dimmer anyway) when it heats.

4. The k-cups are quite expensive. 50 cents each for a small cup of coffee or tea. I often use two k-cups to fill a large mug.

So, considering the price of the machine and the k-cups, I wish it were a little better than it is. However, it is good enough for me to keep it and use it. Maybe I'll add a pod machine too for those times when I want a really strong cuppa which Keurig cannot do.

One-cup wonders challenge traditional coffeepots

flaviawoman.jpgI have to give this article some credit - I never thought about a household where some drinkers like mild coffee versus dark coffee. Having one of these single serve makers growing up would have solved many arguements on what to brew.

"Move over, coffeepot. There's a new pod in town. A fresh brood of at-home brewers, using single-serving packets or pods of coffee, has invaded. These one-cup wonders seek gourmet-joe converts -- and a little bottom-line vengeance -- promising:
• Premium coffeehouse taste in the comfort of your own abode. Sippers can kick the coffee-can habit -- and a Starbucks one while they're at it.
• No more household power struggles over flavor or strength.
• No more too-long-on-the-burner bitterness.
• No more foraging for filters, fussing with grounds or dumping three-quarters of a pot for the sake of a single morning fix."

The Lavazza Channel

lavazzohome.jpgIn what can only be called - truly Italian, the folks at Lavazza have put together more flash and buried product information soooo deep - I dare you to try and find any relevant information on Single Serve Coffee. That being said - the site is a great deal of fun. :-)
