Senseo Coffee and Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Coffeemakers Annouce Partnership

41+wHvNxa3L._SL500_AA300_.jpg

With the cold temperatures of winter lingering in the air, Sara Lee North American Retail announced today a new partnership for the SENSEO coffee brand with Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc., one of the country's leading distributors of small household appliances. Just in time to warm consumers up for the holiday season, the partnership introduces two new single-serve machines to the small appliance marketplace, providing consumers with a great-tasting cup of top-quality coffee at an extremely attractive price point - $19.99 and $29.99.

Hamilton Beach Personal Cup One Cup Pod Coffeemaker at $19.99

SENSEO uses pre-measured pods to consistently deliver an exceptional cup of coffee at the touch of a button, without the mess and hassle of handling coffee grounds or having to clean up a coffee pot afterwards. Coffee lovers can choose among 11 varieties of SENSEO coffee pods to brew a fresh cup of coffee in either the new Hamilton Beach Personal Cup One Cup Pod Coffeemaker or the Hamilton Beach Stay or Go Personal Cup Pod Coffeemaker.

So that makes it all official. Senseo is partnering with a small appliance maker to get some new machines out. We'll see what we can do to drum up these two machines. For us it's an interesting move because Senseo has always meant creamy topped coffee, and we're pretty sure these machines will just make a straight up cup of coffee. Still these two machines may just be what consumers are looking for at the low price and simple features.

Hamilton Beach Personal One Cup Coffee Pod Brewer

41C1XNGcuML._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Looks like Senseo is touting another brewer, and not from them but from Hamilton Beach. We've seen these Hamilton One Cup brewers in various hotels we've stayed, and they're okay but not the best coffee pod brewer you can buy. The Hamilton Beach One Cup Coffee Pod Brewer will use just about any coffee pod in the 62 mm and 7-9gram weight, but bigger 14 gram pods might not work. It's interesting Senseo didn't brand this with the Senseo brand, and instead have partnered with Hamilton Beach to bring a one cup only brewer with no reservoir to market.

  • 18-pod starter bag of Senseo® coffee and coupon included
  • Easy as 1-2-3: insert coffee pod, pour in water & push start
  • Brews up to a 12-oz. cup
  • Automatic shutoff
  • Brew basket is dishwasher safe

Review: Bunn My Cafe MC Model Pour Over Single Serve Coffee Pod Brewer

Review Single Serve Coffee bunnmycafe_model_mc.jpg

The BUNN MC My Cafe Home Pod Brewer is a modified single cup pour over brewer with a reservoir refreshed with each cup you brew by adding from 4 to 14 ozs of water each time you brew. The Bunn My Cafe MC Model coffee pod brewer uses coffee pods and tea pods and features both a standard brew mode and a pulse brew mode for tea and darker coffees. The BUNN MC My Cafe Home Pod Brewer is also very compact and has a stainless steel exterior. Unlike the older Bunn My Cafe this brewer comes with one pod drawer for brewing that can be used for tea and coffee.

The iMac Single Serve Coffee Edition

coffeebody1e_htmlbild.jpg

Leave it to the Deutsch to figure out a design that includes both the industrial design of the iMac and then coffee included in the mix. Basically they've been able to take an iMac case and include the WMF single serve coffee pod brewer. We've featured this unit when it was a prototype but now you can actually order your own. We think this would be perfect for the home office or work place, and a real head turner. The computer part is also not the original iMac guts, but is provided by putting Mac Mini along side the coffee unit. Crazy.

  • Absolutely no manipulations of the unit.
  • The Mac mini switches on with the iMac front-button.
  • The ports of the lateral board of the iMac are connected
  • ...to the corresponding ones of the Mac mini.
  • Flawless IR signal detection.
  • Only for Mac minis from 2005 - june 2010
  • Thanks to the HQ JBL Subwoofer the system provides an impressive sound.
  • Perfect harmony between JBL Spot an iMac Speakers.
  • Main volume adjustable via touch control on the front panel of the iMac.
  • Fits perfectly into the dome of the iMac.

Mr. Coffee Keurig K-Cup Brewer Arrives for Review

mrcoffeekcupbrewer.jpg

We recently featured the new Mr. Coffee Keurig K-Cup brewer here at Single Serve Coffee, and our excitement for this new brewer was truly felt. Not only does the Mr. Coffee brewer have an amazing industrial design, it features the Keurig brewing system allowing you to use any K-Cup you want for a perfect cup of coffee. That's right the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System is powered by Keurig brewing technology for coffee house quality at home. We've been waiting a long time for this brewer to debut, and the $79.99 price point is a welcome addition to the Keurig lineup of single serve and one cup coffee brewers.

The Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System is compatible with Keurig K-Cup portion packs, and features a single cup 8-Ounce brewing capacity much like the Keurig Mini Plus. To make a cup of coffee with the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System you simply pour over from your coffee mug the 8 oz of water into the back, close the water area, and put a K-Cup in the brewing slot. Next push the button, and the brewer will heat the water and brew you a cup of single serve coffee.

Other features of the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System include a removable drip tray, and a on and off indicator light. We'll have a full review very soon of the Mr. Coffee BVMC-KG1 Single Serve Brewing System.

Tassimo Brewbot Espresso Machine, Coffee, Latte & Cappuccino Maker

brewbot_tassimo.jpg

Tassimo has debuted a new marketing angle for their previously labeled "hot beverage system" in the form of a brewbot. They are pushing the different automated and advanced features of the Tassimo system by making it well - more robotic, and from the future. What is a brewbot?

The Brewbot (BROO·bot) is an advanced
brewing machine programmed to make over
seven different varieties of beverages.
Brewbots can create coffees, lattes,
cappuccinos, espressos, hot chocolates and
coffee cremas all at the touch of a button.
a.k.a. Roboticus Brewtus.

The Tassimo machines however have not changed but just given a new marketing name. These are the same models repackaged with brewbot marketing. We're actually not sure how much they'll change the line later this year or early next to match the brewbot marketing, but we expect some new models to help accentuate the brewbot idea. So you're T20, T65, and T45 models remain the same you'll just need to speak in robot to get them to make a cup of coffee.

There's even a new video that features the brewbot brewing up a ton of interesting single serve coffee options, and touts the Starbuck's, Suchard, and other brands for the Tassimo Brewbot.
