Looking for the latest and greatest Nespresso capsule? Look no further than the Limited Edition Nespresso Blend Oâ. Oâ means "to marry" in Swahili, one of the official languages of Tanzania and Kenya. Oâ is the result of two unions - the meeting of the earth and the sky. It's also the unity of two origins; the combination of smooth and intense character of the finest Arabica from Kilimanjaro with fruity notes of sumptuos Arabica grown on Mount Kenya.
We've been sipping a bit of Oâ over the past few days using the Nespresso C100T Essenza (which we will have a full review of soon) to make a cup of Oâ in lungo size. What do we think? How yummy is this Oâ we speak of?

Nespresso is giving away coupon vouchers for $60 off any Nespresso machine. You'll need to have either received the coupon or you can call a toll free number to get the coupon. The number to call is 1800 562 1465. Another way to share the coupon is when you click on the link in the email you receive, you can on the Nespresso coupon site send a coupon to a friend. Good luck getting this deal as it makes a great many of the machines very affordable. In order to get your $60, you'll need to purchase a machine and then send in the coupon voucher and information from the Nespresso machine's box. This makes purchasing the Nespresso D90R Essenza Manual Espresso Machine, Coral Red for $119 instead of $179 a no brainer if you want to get into the world of Nespresso.
Update:The other offer is a Mother's Day Promotion and it's for current members only. The only way this offer is good for non-members is when a member refers them. In this case, the voucher that he/she receives will have the preprinted information of the person who did the referring and the referred will have to fill out his/her own info before sending the voucher in for the rebate. This offer is for $60 cash back. If you're not a Nespresso member - check out the $50 back offer good until June 30th.

Love or hate the design - the Nespresso Le Cube is a single serve coffee and espresso maker classic. Key features of the Nespresso Le Cube include a front panel color in Arctic White, Titanium, Red, and Aluminum. The machine is also very compact and features the easy capsule insertion and ejection system from Nespresso. The Nespresso Le Cube also has a programmable extraction for small and long cups of espresso or single serve coffee with an automatic stop. The higher end model (C185) features a cup warmer, and all the models feature a 34 oz water reservoir. If you're going to use the Nespresso Le Cube to make lattes or cappuccinos, you'll need to get the additional Aeroccino milk frother from Nespresso. Also, the Le Cube can only use Nespresso coffee and espresso capsules.

Oâ comes in a fiery orange Nespresso capsule, and we think we're going to love the marriage of our cup and this espresso. We are currently doing our review of the Nespresso C100T Essenza, and think this new coffee would go quite well with the machine.
Oâ means "to marry" in Swahili, one of the official languages of Tanzania and Kenya.

We'll have a full review soon of the new Oâ from Nespresso.

We can't tell you how much we'd love to have our own Nespresso Romeo to use every day here at Single Serve Coffee, but we can try. We love the footprint, we love the design, and most importantly, we love the coffee and espresso it produces. Having reviewed the Nespresso Romeo 350 not that long ago, we remember fondly the little capsule retreating from the balcony, and becoming a perfect cup of single serve coffee. YUM!
Right now Amazon.com has the Nespreso Romeo listed for $80 dollars off. Sign up for Amazon Prime and you'll also get 2 day shipping. Amazon Prime may cost $79 bucks, but think of the $80 you save to get this killer deal of 2 day shipping on just about any Amazon.com item - including coffee pods, k cups, and T Discs.

We're really excited to say we've finally received the upgrade to our Nespresso C90 from Nespresso - the Nespresso C100T Essenza espresso machine. With one push of a button, the Nespresso Essenza Flow Stop in the C100T will automatically make a pre-programmed espresso or Lungo 5 ounce cup of coffee. The older C90 we have does not have the automatic features and we're excited to have this feature built in so our "espresso cup does not runneth over" when we forget to stop the flow. The Nespresso C100T Essenza also features a 34 ounce water reservoir, 19 bar high-pressure pump, and automatic ejection of used capsules on lifting the handle.
We think bang for your Nespresso buck, this is the most affordable Nespresso machine at just over $200, and one of the most attractive. We love the footprint of the Nespresso C100T Essenza we'll have full review soon.

In time for the launch of the Nespresso Boutique in New York, Nespresso has created a set of flavored coffees. We fired up our Nespresso C90 and made both Lungo - 3 oz cups of single serve coffee and shots of espresso of the new flavors.
The Nespresso Variations come in the following flavors:
- Absolute Vanilla Smoothness
- Fruity, Spicy Apple and Cinnamon Fusion
- Cool Aniseed Sensation
Pricing will be $.55 a capsule or $5.50 per 10 capsule sleeve and we received 6 sleeves total to taste. What do we think? What does the licorice coffee taste like?

Readers are always writing in asking the Single Serve Coffee staff how much the different single serve coffee systems cost to own and operate and especially how much each cup of single serve coffee will cost. We think the questions "what's best", or what's "cheapest," or what's "least expensive" all fall under this category of question as well, but starting with what type of coffee you'd like to make and how much it will cost is a good way to find out which single serve coffee maker is the least expensive to own and operate.
Are Senseo Coffee Pods, Tassimo T-Disks, K-Cups or Nespresso Coffee Capsules the best option for you? Which system falls in your price range? Does the single serve coffee maker or system match your coffee drinking habits? These are all good questions that go hand and hand with the price per cup.
The guide below should give you all the detail you need to know on what coffee system may be right for you. Depending on which type of single serve coffee maker you choose, be it coffee pods, k cups, t discs, or nespresso capsules, you'll be choosing the type of coffee you can get per system and also how much per cup your single serve coffee will cost, and how flexible that cost can be, and what types of coffee the single serve coffee maker can prepare.
If you look at the four major type of single serve coffee you can purchase there are essentially 4 main types:
- Coffee Pods - work with a variety of single serve coffee makers including: Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, Grindmaster, simplehuman, and Krups Home Cafe. Coffee pod brewers are the "open standard" of single serve coffee makers, with the largest variety of coffees available reaching over 250+ varieties of coffee pods.
- K Cups - work only with Keurig brewers. Models include: Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, and the newly released Keurig B70 Brewer. You can expect to get in the 150+ variety range for K Cup types of coffee as well as tea.
- T Discs: works only with the Tassimo line of single serve coffee makers. You can expect to get 30+ different coffees and teas for your Tassimo brewer.
- Nespresso Coffee Capsules: works only with the Nespresso line of single serve coffee makers. On average there are 12 regular varieties and 3-4 unique varieties per year.
Given the run down of each of the different types, how much does each cup of single serve coffee cost per system?
