We've just received word there's a new coffee pod machine in Europe marketed under the Tefal and Rowenta brand names depending on what country you purchase it in. It's called the Supremia and makes coffee with no crema for those that prefer straight black coffee. The Supremia can use 1 or 2 x 62mm pods and has a large water reservoir. It will be priced in the UK at £79.99 or as low as £53. Thanks to CafePods for sending this in.
For use with either ground coffee or any filter coffee pods (71mm).
Serves one or two cups simultaneously.
Removable 900ml water tank for easy filling.
Transparent water tank for easy water level viewing.
Removable drip tray with removable stainless steel grid.
120ml coffee serving dispensed at a touch of a button.
We've recently gotten a bunch of emails regarding how to get other Senseo coffee pods from our European cousins and we know of one place that you can do such a thing: Typical Dutch Stuff. Typical Dutch Stuff has a nearly every European coffee pod that will work in not just your Senseo single serve coffee maker but also your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers.
From Typical Dutch Stuff:All the pods we offer have the same diameter (62mm) as the original Douwe Egberts pods. Please be careful with ordering pods from other brands that are not showed on this website. If the diameter of a pod is slightly different, your coffee probably will end up watery and not worth your money. Also, all of our pods are suitable for most single serve coffee makers.
This is a fun article detailing how a four star hotel should be run and it includes putting a single serve coffee maker in every room. We agree. Why wouldn't you want a perfect cup of coffee if you're paying 4 star hotel prices. Developer Andy Woodcock is planning a £2m transformation of the 19th century Institute located in the UK in a town called Hull, in Albion Street, into an "owner hotel", a concept based on a chain owned by US tycoon Donald Trump.
Every detail has been thought of: from the feel of the sheets as you slip into bed at night, to the Tassimo drink maker and laptop-size digital wall safe. There's even a choice of mattress: from extra firm to a soft type which moulds to fit your form. Downstairs in the public areas there'll be a DVD and CD library and games consoles for hire, a bar and restaurant and a waiting concierge to park your car.
The Flavia Fusion will be out in the UK in September. Having hailed from Europe (that's our understanding) it's a surprise the FLAVIA FUSION hasn't been available in the UK. We're sure our UK cousins will enjoy the new FLAVIA Fusion this Fall and as far as we know - they're not going to making any major adjustments to the FLAVIA FUSION or coffees and teas available at launch.
No, its not a mini power station to back the government's nuclear policy, but a drinks station that'll let you whip up 30 different beverages. Flavia claims its latest bit of kitchen kit cuts the hassle of making anything from a cappuccino or latte to its own range of hot cocktails. The bit that really appeals is the lack of cleaning the unit needs. Flavia says its filterpacks mean no mess and no soggy tea bags or spilled coffee beans to sort out. The Fusion will cost £79.99 and be available in red, black or ice blue.
When we first reported about the Melitta MyCup coffee maker, we were pretty sure the coffee pods were square. Now our good friend in Europe from Cafepods has sent word of new pictures and info on this new single serve coffee maker.
From these new pictures the coffee pods look to be of an even odder shape that's really more functional. Our first thoughts are - this shape in a coffee pod would most likely get a really good seal because of the larger lip that would seat better in the pod holder. Often times with round pods, you get water that goes right by the any edge that isn't already wet or seated down and the amount of edge varies from pod to pod as well. We like the look of the machine and hope Melitta starts to bring some of this innovation over to the US market.
Translated from German: "Experience coffee benefit of its most beautiful side! The new MyCup® connects variety to fun at that with mad coffee taste. Enjoy after desire and mood freshly gebrühten coffee with fine Crema - whether or two, small or large cup, cup or bowl. By the simple operation, the clevere technology and the modern Design in two trendigen colors the coffee preparation with the new makes MyCup® correctly fun. With the suitable accessories is also those Its MyCup® machine maintains completely simply."
