Cafe Escape Dark and Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa K-Cups for Keurig

milkdarkchocolatekcups.jpg

It's a pretty exciting week of news for any Keurig owner out there because we have news that TWO new hot cocoa K-Cup flavors are available: Dark Chocolate K-Cups and Milk Chocolate K-Cups.

These are new and different from the regular Hot Cocoa K-Cups from Green Mountain as these K-Cups are a bit more indulgent. Both flavors are available at Green Mountain's web site, and soon Keurig.com exclusively for the next couple of months, after that they'll roll out to the rest of the larger online etailers that sell K-Cups.

  • Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa K-Cup - An elegant and satisfying dark chocolate experience, with rich European sophistication. Dark cocoa intensity at the touch of a button! Developed expressly for your Keurig Brewer. 24 K-Cups per box.
  • Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa K-Cup - A classic favorite for all ages. Sophisticated, sweet cocoa at the touch of a button! Developed expressly for your Keurig Brewer. 24 K-Cups per box.

The Dark and Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa K-Cups will work in your Keurig Mini B30, Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and any other Keurig brewer.

Breville Keurig Single Cup Brewer - Shiny Chrome K-Cup Goodness

08-Breville-Keurig-Alt1.jpg

It's been awhile since we featured the Breville Keurig Single Cup Brewer, and we have to say over the past year+ (read our full review here) it's been in the Single Serve Coffee test kitchen everyday, and we've loved it. It's compatible with all K-Cups, and it features the integrated storage of the reusable My K-Cup filter that allows you to use your own coffee with the brewer. One of the things we really like is the programmable on/off timer. We start ours at 6:30am and shut the brewer off at 11am - the perfect time for several round trips to the Breville for piping hot cups of single serve coffee goodness. It's also the only Keurig brewer to feature integrated walter filtration which makes your coffee taste better.

  • Brews a single cup with the press of a button.
  • Re-usable "My K-Cup" adapter included
  • Water filtration for consistently great taste

Review: Emeril's Organic French Quarter Roast K-Cups

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsIMGP3143.jpg

Distributed by Timothy's World Coffees, Emeril's Organic French Quarter Roast is one of the company's latest offerings in the K-Cup market. As noted in a recent review, Emeril is known mostly for his cooking shows on the Food Network and various food products available at most grocery stores. The coffee scene is a relatively new one for him, but he's quickly gaining recognition amongst Keurig users across the nation.

As usual, we decided to choose the 5.25oz brew size to extract the full flavors of this dark roast using our Keurig brewer. The scent reveals hints of hickory and chocolate while its appearance (when held up to a light source) reveals a surprisingly clear, crimson red tint. This is almost ironic as the French Vanilla BAM! K-Cups we reviewed earlier were a medium roast yet had a much darker color. Maybe this color difference has something to do with this coffee's organic nature? Speaking of which, sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference between organic and non-organic products… certain organic baked goods yield obvious differences in taste while organic fruits & vegetable often times taste identical to their non-organic brethren.

Review: Emeril's Vanilla Bean BAM! K-Cups for Keurig

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews

IMGP3131.jpg

Distributed by Timothy's World Coffees, Emeril's Vanilla Bean BAM! is one of 2 new Emeril's K-Cup flavors recently introduced to the single serve coffee market (we'll be reviewing Emeril's Organic French Quarter Roast in the coming weeks). Known mostly for his cooking shows on the Food Network and various food products available at most grocery stores, the coffee scene is a relatively new one for Emeril and his goal was to introduce a coffee which stood out among the rest as having a richer, heartier taste & character. This new vanilla flavor marks the first time he's gone with a medium roast vs. his usually darker varieties.

IMGP3133.jpg

We chose the 5.25oz brew size on our Keurig one cup coffee maker to extract the full flavors, and were greeted with a strong French vanilla scent which seemed stronger than any other vanilla K-Cup we'd tried before. As a result, we were expecting a stronger vanilla flavor from this smaller brew size but were surprised at how subdued & mild it was. The sweet taste of vanilla was present but was struggling to balance the sour nature of the acidity. We thought there would have been more "BAM!" (so to speak) in the flavoring overall and it left us wanting to throw in a few dashes of vanilla extract. We understand some people will likely prefer less flavorings in their coffee, but when a product is marketed as "having enough BAM! for Emeril himself", the final result is rather disappointing.

Review: Keurig Milk Frother for Single Serve and One Cup Coffee Makers

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviewsfrother_hero_ssc.jpg

Up until recently the only other automatic milk frothers were from Nespresso - the Aeroccino and Aeroccino Plus. We love our Aeroccino, but we're also ready to have some more alternatives to milk frothing companions for our single serve coffee. The Keurig Milk Frother is another stand alone frother that you can use with any single serve coffee system, but will make an amazing companion for your Keurig Mini B30, Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and any other Keurig brewer.

IMG_7504.jpg

We've been using the Keurig Milk Frother over the past two weeks, and have to say it's easy to use, clean up, and makes great frothed milk. You'll need only one essential ingredient - great skim milk for frothing. If you want to use other milk fat levels - you won't get great froth, but you will get whipped hot milk. There are two levels as well 150 ml for froth using skim milk, and 250 ml for hot milk. Both of these measure levels are marked inside the frother.

Keurig Countertop Tower K-Cup Holder - Holds 30 K-Cups

08-accessories-keurig-tower-alt1.jpg

Looking for a great way to showcase all of those K-Cup flavors you have for your Keurig singles serve coffee maker? We have been using the Keurig Tower K-Cup Holder for over a month, and we love it. Instead of reaching into the cupboard for a K-Cup we can load up the tower with as many varieties of K-Cup coffees, teas, and even white or hot chocolate. We've found this to be a much better design than the earlier K-Cup Carousel because the footprint of the tower is much less. The lazy susan design is also really fluid, and the tower can hold up to 30 K-Cups.

Keurig OfficePro K-Cup Brewing System for At Work

hero.jpg

Keurig has introduced an at work brewer available now to directly purchase from their web site, instead of having to purchase the brewer from a Keurig sales person or authorized reseller. This gives small to medium sized companies an option to buy a Keurig system that isn't as large as the B3000 or other Keurig systems and direct from Keurig.

The Office PRO or OfficePro includes a drainable internal water reservoir for transport or storage (a feature not available on home brewers) and comes with an 18-pack of K-Cups. Keurig Commercial Grade brewers are engineered to stand up to the toughest demands of commercial/office use. Commercial Keurig brewers are UL Approved for Commercial Use, and include special construction/materials required for such approval.

  • Brew Sizes: 6 oz, 8 oz, 10 oz*
  • Drainable Internal Water Reservoir
  • Travel Mug Friendly with
  • Removable Drip Tray
  • Removable Reservoir
  • Auto Off Feature

We'll have one of these brewers to review soon here at the Single Serve Coffee offices, and we'll give you our first impressions as well.

Keurig B30 Mini Coffee Brewer on Wired's Wishlist

keurigminib30brewers.jpg

We like the Keurig B30 Mini K-cup coffee brewer and apparently so does Wired Magazine, as they have slapped the mighty mini on their Holiday Wish List for 2008. They saw the fast brewing and ease of use as a big plus for time strapped caffeine junkies everywhere. The beauty of the K-Cup is that it's fast, easy, and makes a darn good cup. The 200 varieties of K-cups don't hurt either - there has to be a blend for everyone there.

The Keurig Mini B30 single serve K Cup coffee brewer is available now for $79.
