Keurig B60 Special Edition with Reusable Coffee Filter

Img6MJust when we thought things couldn't get stranger in the single serve coffee world, we have found out via the forums that Keurig is selling an exclusive K-Cup filter basket with the B60 at Williams Sonoma. The filter basket allows you to use your own ground coffee when using the B60 instead of only allowing K-Cups.

"...use either disposable K-Cups or a reusable K-Cup and filter basket (included) that allow you to use your favorite ground coffee...."

Now we've used a re-useable filter before with the Senseo, and it was a short lived fantasy of wanting to get fresh roasted coffee beans, grind them, and also clean and use the Cafe Filter - isn't that regular coffee and not single serve coffee? How does the William's Sonoma coffee filter fair? We'll be getting one as soon as we can from Keurig and should have a full report in the coming weeks.

Review: Timothy's World Coffee Rainforest Espresso Extra Bold K-Cups

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsLibrary - 7538Timothy's World Coffee has sent us their new Timothy's Rainforest Espresso Extra Bold K-Cups for us to review. We've also been trying out various other Timothy's coffees over the past few weeks and have to admit how much we've enjoyed them all.

Timothy's Rainforest Espresso Extra Bold K-Cups are in the new Keurig K-Cup format that has up to 25% more coffee packed into a single K-Cup. At an 8 oz setting you can truly tell the difference in a cup of Keurig single serve coffee versus a traditional K-Cup without the extra coffee.

The Rainforest Espresso Extra Bold K-Cups have 15% more coffee than the regular Timothy's Rainforest espresso blend. We like the extra amount of flavor this cup of coffee packs. Right away you can smell the coffee and we also mixed our 8 oz cup of Rainforest Espresso with milk and a little sugar to bring out the sweet flavors the Rainforest Espresso delivers.

Single Serve Coffee Visits Green Mountain Coffee Roasters

K-Cup CoffeeWe visited Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in Waterbury, VT in early August. The drive up from Boston is nothing short of breathtaking as Green Mountain Coffee Roasters does is in fact exist in the "Green Mountains".

Green Mountain Coffee Visit - 69As we got closer to Waterbury, we pulled off the highway to stretch our legs, and in the rest area was a coffee center sponsored by Green Mountain Coffee. We knew we were close. After another 30 minutes or so, we pulled off the highway and into Waterbury, VT itself. Waterbury is a smallish town with lots of charm. There is a main street with several restaurants, small shops, and there's even a Green Mountain Coffee Roasters store (which we visited later in the day).

We proceeded up to the Green Mountain headquarters to meet Ken Crites, Joe Anderson, and Gaelan Brown. Our day was to be quite the visit. We started in their K-Cup production facility, got a full tour of their coffee roasting area, moved on to coffee pod making, and then finished the morning with a cupping and tour of their "coffee lab".

Review: Green Mountain's Fair Trade Rain Forest Nut K-Cups for Keurig

Library - 7412 Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsWe decided to kick off the after Labor Day review season with a K-Cup we've been enjoying and it's flavored! Green Mountain's Rain Forest Nut is quite good. We have been drinking it in the 8 oz size when using the Ultra B50 Keurig single serve coffee brewer with a little cream and sugar.

Green Mountain's Rain Forest Nut has a rich flavor - almost a strong vanilla like note, and of tastes of caramel as well. By itself and without the cream, you get a hint of the flavor, but by adding cream and sugar the Rain Forest Nut flavors really come out.

Preview: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Visit

Green Mountain Coffee Visit - 28 On this past Friday, we visited Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in Waterbury, VT. We aren't going to report all of our findings just yet, but we can tell you there are more K-Cup flavors coming like Fair Trade Wild Mountain Blueberry (Blueberry was a seasonal, but now will be permanent addition), a new French Vanilla, and others. The new flavors will be available September 19th.

Also, the Keurig B40 will be available in September at Green Mountain Coffee's web site, and that's just in time for you to pick one up for the holidays or back to school. Best of all, it should be priced at under $100.

On the visit front, I did get to participate in a cupping with two of Green Mountain Coffee Roaster's cuppers. It was a daunting amount of sniffing, coffee crust breaking, and slurping. We also have pictures of many of the machines that make those famous K-Cups.

Stay tuned for the article on the entire visit!
