We hadn't noticed the Keurig Mini K-Cup Brewer being produced in so many colors, but AB from Maine has found there are a ton of colors available - even purple!
My wife and I stopped by Kohl’s today in Bangor and was a little shocked to see so many different Keurig Mini’s. They had Silver, Black, red, Blue, Purple, and White. I have seen the silver, red, and black before but not the other colors.

Tassimo has a system out in Germany we hadn't seen until recently called the Tassimo Joy. The Tassimo Joy makes one button preparation of latte macchiatos, espressos, cappuccinos, chai lattes, fruit or green teas a total joy. The Tassimo Joy coffee machine, available in Clear White, Intenso Black and Passion Purple finishes, boasts the huge T DISC variety of coffee, cocoa and tea based drinks.
The Nestle Star Wars Coffee Machines come in Darth Vader with the 'Dark Set' and 'Light Set' which features C3PO. The availability is very limited and only in Japan for $120 a piece (more if you buy the set below). Why don't we have more themed coffee makers here in the US? We'd take a HALO themed coffee maker over a HALO themed Xbox 360 any day. Well - maybe not.
Each set comes with a mug, lightsaber stirrer, and of course the machine.
Single Serve Coffee reader Alan has written in with news of the TASSIMO T47 Single Cup Home Brewing System. The Tassimo T47 appears to be a Target exclusive in the US, and costs $139.99. It does feature the LCD display and uses Tassimo's barcode technology to brew a perfect single serve hot beverage every time.
Removable cup stand fits most cups, (travel) mugs and glasses.
Capacity (volume): 47.0 Oz.
Custom Brew Strength
Removable Drip Tray
Water Level Window
Removable Water Reservoir
Plastic Metal Finish:
Chrome Finish: Glossy
Auto Standby Mode
We'd love to hear your thoughts and impressions for those of you that own a T47 or might get one for the holidays. So far we've been unable to find anything on the Tassimo web site or our old standby of YouTube.
Update:From Alan, "I saw that part too and I would have to say that it's a misprint in their description. I haven't actually seen it operate but I did play with the floor model a bit at the Target by my work. The display looks a lot like the one used in the T20." We thought the LCD looked like it was missing and that's the case.
This compact coffee maker will make 18 oz of coffee and keep it warm with the included thermal mug. The brewer also comes with a gold filter, and there's even a 1-year hassle-free replacement warranty.
Includes thermal mug and gold-tone filter
Great for small spaces!
Optimized brew process for bolder taste
Removable top-load water tank with integrated handle
Starbucks recently sent over the Verismo Single Serve Coffee and Espresso System which besides VIA instant coffee is their first single serve coffee and espresso system. Currently there are two models of the Verismo - the 580 and the V-585 larger model. The Verismo will make a variety of cafe beverages by using a combination of espresso Verismo pods and milk pods. You can also brew fresh coffee by using a Verismo coffee pod that has a freshness foil on the bottom of it you need to remove to reduce the pressure in the pod while brewing a single serve cup of coffee.
We received the Verismo 580 machine and it's very sleek and not very heavy. We like the fit and finish of the machine, and the overall design on the machine for us is one of it's strengths. If you're going to spend $199 for the 580 and $399 V-585 Verismo the machine had better be appealing. The water reservoir was easy to fill, and the lever to insert the Verismo pods was also easy to use repeatedly. We like the catch basin and multi-tier design of the cup stand allowing you to use larger or smaller cups, and you can even rise the cup stand high enough to use a shot glass for espresso shots.
That's right we've gotten our hands on the Starbucks 580 Single Serve Coffee and Espresso maker to review. We've had it for just a few days drinking lattes, shots of espresso, and House blend brewed coffee. So far the Verismo is delivering on all it's promises. Also - if you're looking for one of the Verismo machines check out Starbucks stores or your local Sur La Table or Williams Sonoma. Williams Sonoma currently is selling the V-585 Machine only.
Here's some details on the Starbucks Verismo Single Serve Coffee and Espresso brewer:
Starbucks quality lattes, espresso and brewed coffee, all from one machine
Lattes are made to our café standard of caramelly, rich espresso and natural, creamy 2% milk
Fresh, natural milk makes creamy, sweet, frothy 2% milk that is perfect for Starbucks Lattes
Uses Swiss-engineered high-pressure technology (19 bars) to deliver a caramelly, rich Starbucks quality espresso shot
Functions as both a high-pressure (espresso) and low-pressure (brewed coffee) machine with automatic temperature settings
Pods are made using 100 percent arabica beans and roasted at the peak of freshness – the same coffee we serve and sell in our cafés
Pods available in Espresso Roast, Decaf Espresso Roast, as well as the full Starbucks Coffee Roast Spectrum (Blonde, Medium, and Dark)
Sleek design with small footprint that blends seamlessly on countertop, with a removable container for used pods
Two machine models available – 580 (base) and V-585 (premium) will be sold at Verismo.com, Starbucks stores, and specialty retailers
A special thanks to Starbucks for sending us the machine to review. More at Starbucks Verismo.
The Hamilton 49995 Beach FlexBrew Single Serve Coffeemaker is compatible with coffee grounds, K-Cup packs or soft coffee pods. We already have seen the Bunn MCU which can brew coffee with grounds, coffee pods, and K-Cups, but it's surprising to see Hamilton Beach get into this multi-brewer arena but given the expiration of the various K-Cup patents more K-Cup brewers are sure to appear over time.
In partnership with Lavazza coffee, Green Mountain and Keurig are introducing the Rivo System designed to deliver coffee shop-quality cappuccinos and lattes at home using fresh milk. The new Keurig Rivo System combines the simplicity of Keurig single cup technology with the authenticity of Italy's favorite coffee, Lavazza, and marks GMCR's entrance into the espresso, cappuccino and latte brewer category.
This also means Green Mountain is going head to head with the recently announced Verismo single serve coffee and espresso maker from Starbucks. The Starbucks Verismo uses shelf stable milk capsules, but the Rivo uses fresh milk from your own refrigerator. This also means there's going to be K-Cups, Vue Packs, and Rivo Packs for consumers to pick from to use in their K-Cup Brewer, Vue System, and Rivo System.
The Rivo will be available just in time for the holiday season, the Rivo System will be sold exclusively at select Bloomingdales' locations beginning in mid-November and is expected to become more widely available, including on www.keurig.com, by the spring of 2013.
Over in the Single Serve Coffee Forums yesterday one of our community members posted Keurig Rivo Espresso Machine Available Soon? We thought the Rivo Espresso machine from was coming soon, but we didn't expect pictures and information regarding the machine in October. Lavazza has taken down the pages since yesterday - so maybe the Rivo isn't ready for prime time just yet, but we're glad we got the details on this new amazing espresso maker.
The design of the machine looks like a combo of espresso maker and milk frother. The machine has a milk frothed pitcher in it much like the Nespresso Lattissima, and it looks like there is going to be 4 blends of espresso at launch. We have no details on pricing just yet, and we're not sure when it will launch either.
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. has expanded of its Keurig Vue Brewing System with the addition of the Keurig Vue V600 brewer. Offering an interactive black and white touchscreen and a lower price point (SRP of $209.99). They've also reduced the price of the Keurig Vue V700 Single Cup Brewing System (read our full review here) to $229.99. The difference in price between the V600 and V700 of $20 means you'll be getting an interactive black and white touchscreen on the V600. The V700 and V600 will only work with Keurig Vue Packs.
