As often as we can, we will revisit different products we review. Even though we might not be keen on a product - it's good to have perspective, so I told my good friend Eric Lanoue about the Home Café and he thought it would fit his needs. He wanted to be able to brew decaf coffee for his mother in law without having to brew an entire pot.

It looks like Home Café will have a New Cappuccino pod coming out in November. I think that this pod will be using the special pod holder included with the Home Café. I'll let you know if I can get an early set of pods to review prior to the new pod launch. Stay Tuned!
The One-Cup Coffeehouse from Home Café
I 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."
Direct Link to Survivor Episode 9 info on Home Café
In 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??? Hehehe...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.

Kristina writes in about her Black & Decker HCC100 Home Café Single Serve Coffee Brewing System. Looks like a very positive review.
"I have this system... received it as a gift and thought i wouldn't like it, but i do. It is a pod system which I like because i only drink 1 cup of coffee every other day or so. As for Millstone coffee they carry it at the Jewel and it's really delicious. They also have a connection to Folgers (which is not great). They are supposed to have "specialty coffess" to go with it, to make the faux cappaucino drinks... but i have yet to see those in stores."

I have yet to see this in person, but it looks like another Pod "system". The B&D Home Cafe uses the Millstone coffee pods. I don't remember ever drinking Millstone coffee - which can't be good. As with the other coffee machines in the Single Serve Category - this one has not shipped yet. However - the Senseo is showing up all over and I've even seen ads in the Boston Globe for it. Let me know if anyone sees or tries this coffee machine.
