Caribou Coffee French Roast K Cups

We've really been enjoying the French Roast K Cups from Caribou Coffee over the holidays. We picked up a bunch of these after running out of our regular grind coffee pods we frequently make using the Perfect Pod Maker.

Expect a very warm and interesting cup of French Roast coffee when using your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers.

The taste is even a bit sweet and chocolaty if you combine some sugar and a little cream. We also recommend the Daybreak Morning Blend K Cups as well (you can read our full review here).

Hot Cocoa K-Cups from Green Mountain

After receiving just north of 10 inches of snow last night, we had to get up extra-early to get rid of all that snow from the Single Serve Coffee headquarters. It takes just about 1.5 hours to dig out from a big snow storm, and it's really nice to have one of the staff bring me out a cup of Hot Cocoa instead of just coffee to warm up the heart and fingers.
We have grown pretty fond of the Hot Cocoa K-Cups from Green Mountain over this Fall and early winter as many of the staff have kids, and they always enjoy a cup or two of Hot Cocoa as do we. We highly recommend getting some to keep your hearts and minds fresh, and comfortable over the cold months to come.

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

Holiday Flavored K-Cups from Green Mountain

Holiday K-Cups are upon us again from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. They've got three new holiday blends (and don't forget about Pumpkin Spice which is still available). One of our favorites is back - Fair Trade Spicy Egg Nog. What's not to love when smelling the aroma of eggnog rich with spices on the nose. There's also Fair Trade Gingerbread and the Fair Trade Holiday Blend. We like the Holiday Blend a little better than the Autumn Harvest blend - it tends to have a sweeter flavor and hits the spot with a pastry or two. Also - all of the Holiday Flavored K-Cups are Fair Trade certified.

Get the Holiday Flavored K-Cups while they last.

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

And don't forget about the Hot Cocoa K-Cups from Green Mountain as well. Hot Cocoa is perfect for the holidays, cold nights, and special moments with that special someone.

Review: Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer - Use K-Cups and Ground Coffee

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsBreville Keurig Bkc600Xl

Breville is widely known for making exceptional small kitchen appliances, and for producing very attractive small appliances. We were very excited to find out that indeed Keurig and Breville had teamed up this year to introduce a high end Keurig brewer designed by Breville. The results are exceptional - a very polished interesting staineless steel design, with Keurig K Cup brewing technology, and all the features you can get in any Keurig machine - including the reuseable My K Cup integrated into the machine allowing you to use your own ground coffee instead of K Cups, and a charcoal water filter in the tank reservoir.

Update: The Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer has been updated to the a newer model with ultra-quiet brew technology. The Breville BKC700XL Gourmet Single-Serve Coffeemaker with Iced-Beverage Function is the updated model.

Here are some previous articles to our review to help round out our thoughts and impressions on the Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer:

What do we think about this new Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer? Do the new features and design justify the price at $299?

Keurig Updates Brewing System - Puncture Needle Changes

Keurig has updated the brewing needle used to puncture and pass hot water into a K Cup. The older Keurig brewing needle looked more like a syringe - a very large scary syringe. The new Keurig brewing needle is more of a pointed hook with a hole on one side.


The older brewing needle seen in the Keurig B70 Brewer
and other Keurig systems. More like a giant syringe.
Shot of coffee anyone?


Updated puncture needle - more like a hook, with
space on the sides for water to pass through.

Is there any difference in taste of the coffee we brewed using K Cups? Not really. We think the coffee produced from both the older Keurig needle and the updated needle is about the same, with the updated machine doing a better job on the darker roasts (given our side by side tests today). We do know the needle change is for better extraction, and we're glad Keurig had updated the brewer with the change at no cost to the price in the system.

Perhaps the change is also for other types of hot beverages coming in the future? Perhaps to make sure it never clogs with said beverages? Only time will tell.

Update: We'd also like to add - this change has been in effect since the August/September time frame. Any B70 you purchase will have this new improved extraction needle.

This updated Keurig brewing system can be found in the Keurig B70 Brewer, and Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer. It's unclear whether the B40, B50, and B60 - along with the commercial Keurig brewers have this update.
