When it rains it pours single serve coffee brewers here at Single Serve Coffee. We just received the new Keurig B150/B155 brewer to review from Keurig. Both the Keurig 150 and 155 models feature a new touch screen user interface to help assist in making your piping hot cup of single serve coffee, tea, or cocoa. Though these brewers are aimed at the small business and home office market, you can also purchase these brewers as a consumer for your home.
We want to know your questions prior to our review in the coming weeks. Do you have questions about the brew temp? How about the reservoir size? How does this brewer compare to the Keurig B70 or the Breville or other commercial Keurig brewers? Ask away and we'll get your questions answered.
You can sound off in the comments or add to our Keurig B155 Questions thread in the Single Serve Coffee Forums. Also you can tweet us a questions or two, and send us questions on our Facebook page. Whatever the method, we'll try and get these questions answered within the context of the review in the coming weeks.

Van Houtte is set to produce Wolfgand Puck K-Cups for the Keurig single serve coffee brewing system. We've been missing our Wolfgang Puck coffees as of late, and it's nice to see even more coffees coming to the Keurig system.
There's no official word on the exact line of flavors, but we expect they'll be some returns from the earlier coffee pod days, and hopefully the Wolfgang Puck Rainforest K-cups will appear from the coffee abyss.
The Wolfgang Puck K-Cups once they are released 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

For some of our readers new to the K-Cup world, we thought we'd let them in our two of our favorite single serve coffee offerings. One is the Seasonal K-Cups at Green Mountain Coffee. Each Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter Green Mountain offers special blends of K-cups to meet your seasonal needs. Right now Spicy Eggnog is our favorite, but soon in the seasonal K-Cups will change and we'll have to pick another
The other great offering over at Green Mountain Coffee is their Cafe Express program. The program allows you to sign up and have K-Cups delivered each month, thus leaving you to worry about what K-Cups to drink and not to order.
So check them out and get all your K-Cups needs met in the coming New Year.
