Portable Single Serve Coffee

The Hey Joe Coffee Mug allows you to brew coffee inside of your mug to the perfect drinking temperature anytime, anywhere, at the push of a button. Currently this is a Kickstarter project, and the funding of $20k is almost complete. You can pre-order one of the Hey Joe Coffee Mugs for just $49 instead of the $69 once funding is complete.
The Hey Joe coffee mug is a travel sized coffee mug that acts just like any other coffee mug, except it can brew coffee inside of your thermos and regulate the temperature automatically. Whether you're a working professional or a student, there is nothing worse than taking a sip from your travel thermos, only to find the coffee is lukewarm or cold. Usually this is a huge problem but not with Hey Joe - just push the button on the Hey Joe Coffee mug and it will warm your coffee up in a matter of minutes.
So with this travel mug the possibilities are endless. Because you don’t have to plug it in that makes for hot coffee wherever you want to take it. We love our portable coffee options, and making coffee on the go is one of the best perks of single serve coffee you can get.

The Nomad - The Go Everywhere Espresso Machine was successfully funded at Kickstarter last year, and according to their December 2013 update they are close to production. We’re pretty big on portable single serve coffee, and the Nomad is a portable espresso machine if you want high quality espresso on the go. It needs no electricity, batteries, or high pressure gas cartridges. There are no expensive wasteful coffee pods or capsules to be discarded.
The Nomad is the size of a 15 cm cube, weighs 1.1 kg, and requires no electricity. With very little effort the Nomad produces 9 bars of pressure and is equipped with a proprietary True Crema Valve which compensates for coarser grounds and tamping variations. When used with the True Crema Valve anyone can make great espresso and coffee without having expensive grinding equipment and extensive training.
How does it work? Just pack ground coffee, add hot water, and actuate the pump lever.
You can find out more at their web site and there’s a full video after the jump to make the wait for Nomad seem shorter.

The Presto MyJo also comes with a reusable coffee filter so you don't have to just use K-Cup portion packs. MyJo gets you the convenience of a single cup coffee maker without the high cost.

Over in the Single Serve Coffee Forums there's a great post featuring a couple of Aeropress tips. We love the Aeropress (read our review here), and any tricks and tips are always welcome. Besides making a great cup of coffee the Aeropress itself is one of many inventions from Alan Adler inventor of the Aerobie flying disk. Yep - not only did Alan invent a great coffee press, he's got 40 other patents and lectures at Nasa. Okay back to the tips...

Fiat claims the machine "is perfectly integrated in the car with a deck designed expressly by Fiat." The espresso machine comes with matching cups, is being made for Fiat by Italian coffee importer Lavazza, and uses the company's "A Modo Mio" coffee pods.

Our Handpresso - the portable espresso maker saved the day for some espresso shots and an americano or two during yesterday's storm. As Hurricane Irene pounded down on us here in Boston we quickly lost power after a giant branch fell from a nearby tree. Luckily we have a gas stove, so we were able to boil some water and use our Handpresso Wild to make lots of yummy espresso shots to get us through the storm.

We've received the full line of Dr. Drip Coffee remedies for your single serve coffee soul here at Single Serve Coffee. Each packet contains a coffee filter you fit over a mug and pour over with hot water to make a perfect cup of coffee. We're surprised on how the packets aren't much bigger than a coffee pod, and so far the coffee is quite good.
How do they brew? Well here are the steps:
- Tear Open the foil packet
- Tear off top along line so you don't spill
- Press Sides inward
- Place filter on top of coffee cup
- Pour over hot water filling to the top and wait 20-30 seconds for brewing. Then pour over more water for desired strength.
- Remove the filter and enjoy some hot coffee.
We'll have a full review soon, but so far so good. Thanks to Dr. Drip Coffee for sending over the packets to review.

Dr. Drip Coffee is a new single-serve brewing system that combines the classic drip brewing method with convenience and portability. Each Dr. Drip package contains a mug-perching filter packed with freshly ground Arabica beans for brewing. Given the portability of the Dr. Drip Coffee system you can use it at home or take it on the go.
Dr. Drip prescribes four distinct and flavorful blends:
- The Organic Tonic: A 100% USDA Certified Organic blend
- The Ultimate Pick Me-Up: A Dark Roasted Sumatra Blend for the truly bold and brazen.
- The Double Daily Remedy: A Premium Signature Blend
- The Decaf Energizer: Resounding proof that there's more to love than just the caffeine buzz.
We like the idea, and it's basically a pour over cone in a coffee cup. We're not sure how the filter is made, but hopefully we'll have some on hands soon to review.

It's crazy to think given the length of time (nearly 20 years) that Singlebrew has been around that we've never heard of them - but we haven't. The story goes the Singlebrew founder was backpacking and was really unhappy with instant coffee (seriously who isn't), and decided to put some coffee in a tea bag. The results were good enough that the result was after the trip to research and create Singlebrew - gourmet coffee in a tea bag.
There is a total of 10 varieties - Colombian, Colombian Decaf and the most popular flavors of Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Swiss Mocha Almond, Irish Cream, Vanilla Nut, Chocolate Raspberry, Cinnamon Nut Swirl and Almond Amaretto.
We'll see if we can round some up to try, and given the amazing weather here in the Northeast, a cup of coffee in the outdoors seems right on the horizon.
