Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Brewing System Pictures

IMG_1808.jpg

We've got a ton of pictures from Bed, Bath, and Beyond to share with you on the Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Brewing System that uses K-Cups. This brewer comes with a charcoal water filter, and has a My K-Cup reusable filter stored away in the side of the brewer. The Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Brewing System is compatible with all K-Cups including the coffee, tea, and hot cocoa K-Cups. Pricing is set at $199.99.

We should have one of these brewers to review very soon, so stay tuned in the mean time enjoy the pictures.

The controls look very familiar, and you can see it has an

Keurig B150 and B155 Touch Screen User Interface Single Serve Coffee Brewers

Keurig B155.jpeg

The Keurig Commercial Series B155 is specially designed for use in small to medium sized businesses, medical offices and home offices and offers more ways to personalize the coffee brewing experience. It includes a new one-of-a-kind, interactive touchscreen interface that allows users to walk through a variety of functions, and an easy to fill, removable water reservoir - their largest at 90 ounces - can make up to 18 cups of coffee before needing a refill.

Like all Keurig brewers, the B155 uses Keurig's patented K-Cup portion packs eliminating the hassle of grinding beans, measuring coffee, handling filters and messy clean-up while brewing a gourmet cup of coffee or tea in less than one minute. With over 200 different coffee, tea and hot cocoa options to choose from, everyone in the office can find something they want to consume.

The B155 is available through a Keurig Authorized Distributor, or online at www.keurig.com for $249.95. Make sure to check them out on Facebook at www.facebook.com/keurig to enter their Photo Contest to win a year's supply of K-Cups (through Feb 7.)

You'll need a small to medium business to purchase one, but we like the giant reservoir, and we think the touch screen interface will be a welcome addition to the single serve coffee world. We should have one of the B155's to review soon.

Update: Several readers have written in and it appears you can order one of these regardless of being a small business owner. So if you need the features - you can enjoy the B155 in your home as well.

Caribou Coffee Mahogany K-Cups - Molasses Flavored Bold Coffee

09-k-cup-caribou-mahogany-lg.jpg

We were told about this amazing K-Cup over the weekend by our loyal Single Serve Coffee reader and friend Len. He described the K-Cup as simply the richest and boldest K-Cup he's had in quite some time. So we purchased some earlier in the week, and they arrived yesterday. Len was dead on. The Caribou Coffee Mahogany K-Cups produce a bold molasses, spice and semi-sweet chocolate cup of coffee combined with a very bold dark base. We simply love this coffee, and we think you will too. The Caribou Coffee Mahogany K-Cups are available fresh from the roaster when you order them direct online.

These K-Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.

Newman's Special Blend Extra Bold K-Cup

09-k-cup-fair-trade-organic-newman-80-lg.jpg

We've not had the pleasure of sampling this hearty, full-bodied blend of medium and dark roasts from Newman's Own Organics, but we're anxious to. Supposedly bold yet refined. Strong, yet smooth. This coffee is Fair Trade Certified, organic coffee and now available in an 80-count box. If you don't want 80 K-Cups, there is also a 24 count box available. We'll see if we can drum up some of these K-Cups to review soon.

These K-Cups will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers including the Keurig Mini B30.

Review: EZ-Cup for Keurig Single-Cup Machines - Make Your Own K-Cups and Use Your Own Coffee

Review Single Serve Coffeeezcupsystem.jpg

The EZ-Cup and EZ-Cup Filters allow you to make refillable K-Cups with a filter sleeve that fits inside the EZ-Cup, and then fits into the brewing slot in your Keurig Brewer. Unlike the Perfect Pod Holster which allows you to use coffee pods in your Keurig brewer, the EZ-Cup allows you to use any ground coffee in your Keurig Brewer.

IMG_8331.jpg
The EZ-Cup filter paper.

Update: Many readers have written in asking if you could use your Perfect Pod Holster with the filters. We have tried this and the spring inside the two different products is well - different. The Perfect Pod Holster has a very strong longer spring and the EZ-Cups is shorter to make room for the filter sleeve. We recommend buying the EZ-Cup and not trying to make the Perfect Pod Holster work. We did not get good results if we used the Perfect Pod Holster - it's for coffee pods not for use with the new EZ-Cup filter sleeve.

It's different from the My K-Cup reuseable K-Cup because you don't have to wash out a filter basket, after you're done filling the EZ-Cup and brewing, you simple open the top and pop out the spent filter basket made of paper. This makes disposing of the coffee grounds really easy, and the entire popped out coffee filter and coffee are able to be composted.

We've had the EZ-Cup now for a few weeks thanks to the folks at As Seen on TV Products sending us one to review, and we have tried a variety of coffee grounds with various success - all of the coffee produced being really quite good. We find the darker finer ground roasts to be our favorites.

Keurig Elite B40 Single Serve Coffee Brewer - The $99 K-Cup Brewer

Keurig-B40-Lg.jpg

We simply think you can't beat the Keurig Elite B40 Brewer at $99. It has most of the features of the more expensive line, and it also has a water reservoir that the lower priced $89.99 Keurig Mini B30 doesn't. That means no trips to refill the water each time, and piping hot single serve coffee each time (read our thoughts and impressions on the Keurig B40 brewer here).

  • Brews a single cup with the press of a button
  • Brews a 7.25 or 9.25 ounce cup in seconds
  • Optional Auto-off feature shuts down brewer after 2 hours
  • Removable 48-oz. water reservoir

At Keurig Elite B40 Brewer

Check out the rest of the Keurig brewers including the Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and the Keurig Mini B30.

Review: Van Houtte Winter Blend K-Cups for Keurig

Review Single Serve CoffeeIMGP3714.JPG

Van Houtte decided to follow-up their Pink Ribbon K-Cups with another unflavored variety, this time it's their Winter Blend K-Cups which were recently released last month. Billed as a "rich and flavorful blend, with intense woodsy notes and subtle acidity", we decided to give this flavor a try and purchased a box during a recent trip to Tweed & Hickory for the purposes of this review.

Upon brewing, we noticed typical earthy Arabica aromas common with a medium roast & a quick glance at the packaging confirmed this was indeed a medium roast. As noted earlier, this is not a flavored coffee nor is it considered a single origin. Flavor was more on the smoky/hickory side (maybe that's what they meant by "woodsy"?) and we couldn't help but imagine brewing a pot of this stuff over a campfire.

Review: Van Houtte Candy Cane K-Cups for Keurig

Review Single Serve Coffee

IMGP3709.JPG

Van Houtte is back in the flavored K-Cup market with a rather unique entry for the Holidays... candy cane. Yes, you read that correctly. On a recent trip to a local Tweed & Hickory store, we decided to purchase a box of Van Houtte Candy Cane K-Cups for the purpose of this review (although we have to admit, our curiosity was the main reason of purchase)

Upon brewing, you get a scent of peppermint and oddly enough, hints of chocolate. Flavor is definitely "minty" & even lingers throughout the finish while hints of chocolate are again present in the taste. We won't exactly call this a bold blend, but rather more like a medium roast which was left in the roaster a bit too long. We found the experience rather surprising as the minty sensation made it feel like we had just munched on some candy canes after each sip. Some people might be put off by this, but we found it was a rather cool feature, literally. Bonus points to Van Houtte for making this coffee somewhat "feel" like you're eating actual candy canes.
