Jim Evans of CoffeeWhiz.com has sent over a selection of Gloria Jean's K-Cups for your Keurig brewer to review. We've been introduced to Gloria Jean's in the past at our local mall here in Boston, MA but haven't had the chance to try their different K-Cups.
We'll be focusing our review on their Butter Toffee and Cappuccino K-Cups. Gloria Jean's has 12 coffees including flavored, plus origins and blends in both regular and decaffeinated, as well as a selection of 7 teas that can be used in Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B50 Gourmet, Keurig B-60 Special Edition brewers.
Expect a full review soon.

We're pretty excited here at Single Serve Coffee.com to see Keurig add another roaster to it's AAA+ list of K-Cup makers. We've visited a Tully's Coffee when we were in Arizona and also in California. Tully's does helm though from Washington State so if you're in the Seattle area - you must check them out.
Tully's coffees are usually very dark rich - interesting coffee's including Kona blends and most of their coffees have an almost smoky feel to them. According to Jim Evans at CoffeeWhiz.com all the Tully's K-Cups will be the extra-bold K-Cups containing 11.5 grams of coffee in each K-Cup.
Full release after the jump.

Green Mountain has introduced two new K-Cups for your Keurig brewer to keep you a little warmer and cozier over the cold winter months.
Starting with their new Winter Classic Blend which brings together the warmth and subtle earthiness of Indonesian coffee with the mellow brightness of Central and South American beans. We have to admit the new blend does sound very interesting. The expected result? A toasty, subtly caramelly cup with a smooth, rounded body and a hint of nutty sweetness in the finish.
If this is even close to the Holiday Blend, then we'll be sold. We really enjoyed the Holiday Blend K-Cups and found it to be an excellent cup of coffee.
Now the Golden French Toast sounds even wilder!
"This coffee makes me sooooo hungry! I get hungry just thinking about it. Reminds me of thick French toast smothered in butter and cinnamon-infused Vermont maple syrup. Yummy and fun!"
We'll be reviewing these K-Cups in the next few weeks and should have a full run down of our impressions of these new K-Cups from Green Mountain.

Want to use your own coffee in your Keurig home brewer? Look no further than the My K-Cup Keurig Reusable Filter filter. The reusable K-Cup® filter assembly allows you to use your own gourmet ground coffee in your Keurig® brewer. The My K-Cup Keurig Reusable Filter will work in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, and the Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer.
The reusable K-Cup filter is also now available to the general public via Green Mountain Coffee's web site. You can purchase both the reusable K-Cup assembly and extra filters. We received just an assembly and one filter for testing but can tell if you really wanted to enjoy this for a couple of cups of coffee in the morning having an extra filters will make repeat cups of coffee much easier.
We embarked on our first round of testing using Pete's House Blend coffee. We frequent Pete's Coffee Shop in Harvard Square here in Cambridge, MA all the time and know that special flavor you get from any Pete's Coffee. How would the My K-Cup Keurig Reusable Filter do when brewing up a cup of coffee? How hard would it be to fill? What would the mess be like? How hard would the clean up be?
Update: You can now purchase the My K-Cup Keurig Reusable Filter at Green Mountain Coffee Roaster's web site.

We just received the new Holiday Flavored K-Cups from Green Mountain. Yes - Holiday FLAVORED! Each K-Cup has a complete holidays worth of flavors packed inside. :-)
The new flavors include:
- Fair Trade Gingerbread - Savor the aromas of fresh, oven-baked gingerbread pastry.
- Fair Trade Holiday Blend - A sweetly spiced aroma marks this seasonal blend of light and dark roasts. Its bittersweet chocolate finish will perfectly complement your holiday table.
- Fair Trade Eggnog Spice - Warm flavors of the Holiday Season - Spicy Eggnog is rich, smooth and creamy, with just the right touch of cinnamon and nutmeg.
We'll be sampling these new K-Cups over the next week and should have a full review shortly.

Timothy's World Coffee is donating $3 dollars for every box of K-Cups you purchase to victims of the Katrina Hurricane. We can easily see buying a couple of boxes of the K-Cup Extra Bold Fair Trade Wiwili. We've been enjoying this coffee and are almost out. The coffee delivers a smooth body and comes across the back of your tongue with a rich thick taste. We love it and we think you'll love helping out the victims of Hurricane Katrina. We just ordered 4 boxes. :-)

Thanks to the folks at Green Mountain, we received the new Keurig Elite B40 and Special Edition B60 to review. We've been furiously running mountains of K-Cups through the B40 and B60 to judge which new Keurig we like the best. We've also been running K-Cups through all of the Keurigs - B40, B50, and B60 to ensure they all make a consistent cup of coffee.
Here's how we did the testing:

- We are currently doing some consulting work for the Fall at a local video game company so we took the Keurig Elite B40 there to get impressions and use the Keurig in a new setting
- We replaced the B50 in our kitchen with the B60 and have made this our daily brewer besides the coffee's we've been testing on other machines
- We used the B50 to compare the coffee flavors using Sumatra Extra Dark and Hazelnut Creme K-Cups prior to splitting up the triplets for comparison.

As we reported last night, Keurig has released a Special Edition B60 only at Williams Sonoma that comes with a reusable filter. The filter will not be available to other Keurig buyers or other online merchants until 2006. When released to other merchants besides Williams Sonoma, the Keurig reusable filter will work in your Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B50 Gourmet, Keurig B-60 Special Edition.
Update: : The Keurig Resusable filter is now available at Amazon.com.
"...use either disposable K-Cups or a reusable K-Cup and filter basket (included) that allow you to use your favorite ground coffee...."
Filter comes in 3 pieces
Everyone here at Single Serve Coffee thinks the reusable filter is a great way to get customers over the hump of buying a Single Serve Coffee maker. How many times have you told someone about your single serve machine and had them say I'm not buying a single serve machine because I can't use my own coffee. Well, now that problem is gone for new buyers. Sure, they'll buy the Keurig B60 with reusable filter knowing they can use their own coffee, but in the end they'll want the convenience of the K-Cups.
A special thanks to Jeff for sending in pictures of the filter. More after the jump.
