The Staresso Coffee Maker allows you to make a variety of coffee drinks with just one small machine. With 15~20 bar pressure, the Staresso can produce coffee and espresso which has rich flavor, lower acidity or bitterness. It’s also simple & easy for using and cleaning. And it’s the only coffee maker with quick cold brew function we’ve seen in a portable format. There’s a great video review if you want to see it in action.

The Keurig KOLD Is A Rather Odd Duck

Keurig kold oddity

TechCrunch has a pretty strong opinion on Keurig KOLD - it’s a bit of an odd duck.

The Keurig Kold is such an odd product that it almost looks like it came from a distant world where no one cares about corn syrup ingestion. Clad in white plastic and covered in grills, the case is far bigger than anything else in your kitchen and makes a noise like Darth Vader taking a nap. 

They also go on to say the machine is rather pointless given the price of soda. What do you think? Is the Keurig KOLD just a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist? Is single serve soda going to take off? Did you buy a KOLD? If so do you like it?

The jury is still out for us here. We see the appeal of the machine and convenience, but the price for the machine and the KOLD cartridges is really high. Also the size of the machine on the counter is really large. We’ll have to see how this plays out over the holidays but so far the reviews for the KOLD and articles are not that kind.

Keurig KOLD Single Serve Soda Machine - In Depth

 

Keurig kold white

The Keurig KOLD single serve soda machine is changing how families enjoy their favorite beverages at home. The KOLD produces individual servings of freshly made, cold, carbonated and non-carbonated drinks, including authentic Coca-Cola Company and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group favorites, plus craft sodas, iced teas, flavored water, sports drinks, iced teas and more. 

How the Keurig KOLD Works

If you have seen a Keurig coffee brewer in action, you probably have a good idea of how Keurig machines make delicious drinks in every flavor imaginable. The KOLD follows in this tradition of customizing beverages for each person in the home. 

Like its hot beverage counterpart, the Keurig KOLD uses small, individual serving cups (called KOLD pods in this case) to make fresh drinks for each member of the household. We just have to remove the freshness seal from the bottom on the KOLD pod, insert it in the machine and press the button to make a perfectly mixed, instantly cold beverage – even a carbonated one.

Is Your Keurig 2.0 Clock Always Running Ahead - Possible Fix

Keurig K550 Display clock

Over at Amazon.com and other places there’s been a ton of complaints about the Keurig 2.0 clock always gaining time. After a week or so of use the clock can gain up to a 1 minute a day. Well SH thinks he might have a solution to this issue.

From SH:

So I haven't used my Keurig 2.0 in a while, but started using it again more frequently this past week.

I recall we had a few power outages here 2-3 weeks ago and I had to keep resetting the clock in the brewer. Usually, I would use the digital setting for display type, but the clock would always end up showing the wrong time after a few days of me not using the machine.

Decided during the last outage to switch to analog display type, THEN set the correct time again. Well, here we are several weeks later and the analog clock is still showing the correct time.

No idea if this is a fluke or if I'm imagining things but so far, so good. Thought I'd let you know.

Let us know if you try this and how it works for you. We’re also going to put this into motion on our Keurig 2.0 brewer.

Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer at Target and Other Retailers

Keurig 20 K200 Target

The Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer has been rolling out to store shelves over the past few weeks, and we got this picture at our local Target in Watertown, MA. The K200 features 9 brew sizes (including carafe sizes), and a large 40 oz. Water Reservoir. There’s even strength control, and a Black and White Touch Display. We also really love this brewer’s compact size. Given the price point of ~$120 (we’ve seen it as low as $109) we expect this to be a big seller for Green Mountain. We just wish they’d get rid of the DRM.

Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer Cheaper in Black

Keurig k200 brewer orange

The Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer is cheaper by $20 bucks if you purchase the black version of the brewer. The K200 comes in a variety of colors but the color will cost you more than $20 bucks making the brewer $109 instead of $89 for the black model. We're partial to the orange brewer given our Syracuse collegiate experience, but we'll have to take the non-colored version of the brewer to save the $20 bucks.
