Mr. Coffee Single Serve K-Cup Brewing System

41GQydnxusL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

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 get one of these brewers to review very soon, and we want to welcome Mr. Coffee to the world of K-Cup single serve coffee.

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.

Nespresso C110 CitiZ Automatic Single-Serve Espresso Maker and Nespresso Capsule Storage

41GRwtWSXcL._AA300_.jpg

We're big fans of the Nespresso CitiZ line of single serve coffee makers (read our full review here), and we think pairing the machine with the Swissmar Capstore Vista Storage Rack for 40 Nespresso Coffee Capsules is a winning combination. The Nespresso C110 CitiZ Automatic Single-Serve Espresso Maker is for use with coffee-filled capsules from Nespresso, and features both espresso and lungo buttons with automatic and programmable volume control. The C110 also features a 19-bar pump, energy-saving mode, and 1-liter removable water tank.

41h9eTL2zAL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

If you pair the Nespresso C110 CitiZ Automatic Single-Serve Espresso Maker with this Turntable-style storage unit you'll be able to store up to 40 Nespresso single-serve capsules. The storage unit spins and makes picking the perfect lungo or espresso in the morning much easier, and with less mess.

Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage and Single Serve Coffee System Arrives for Review

T20_TASSIMO.jpg

That's right we've finally gotten our hands on a Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System to review. The footprint is smaller, and so far we like it but miss the digital LCD display of the T65 model. We'll have more details as we put together our review, but so far so good.

  • 1.5 litre tank which should mean that you don't need to refill constantly
  • Water is only heated on demand and the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System goes into stand-by mode when not in use.
  • As well as coffee, cappuccino, espresso and macchiato drinks from Carte Noir, Kenco, Seattle's Best, and Starbucks the Tassimo Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System can also make Milka hot chocolate, Starbucks House Blend and Twinings English Breakfast Tea.
  • The main parts of the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System can be taken apart and put in the dishwasher.
  • There is a compartment for the quick-start manual and cable storage.

Green Mountain Coffee and Lavazza to Co-Develop Single Serve Espresso and Coffee Machines

greenmountain_espresso.jpg

Today Green Mountain Coffee and Lavazza announced not only a stock purchase deal of $250 million dollars, but also the intent to co-develop single serve coffee and espresso machines. They are working together with the intent to reach a further agreement pursuant to which GMCR and Lavazza will cooperate to develop and Lavazza will manufacture new single-serve espresso machines and single-serve espresso capsules designed for use with such machines.

These co-developed machines would complement GMCR's line of Keurig single-cup coffee brewers. It is not anticipated that any of these co-developed machines and/or capsules will be available for the marketplace prior to GMCR's fiscal year 2013. The further agreement also may provide GMCR the ability to distribute, market and sell existing coffee espresso single-cup machines utilizing Lavazza's espresso technology for in-home use in the United States and Canada.

We think this not only means single serve espresso, but also more coffee technology as well. Imagine a high end Keurig K-Cup brewer with frothing technology, and the ability to use both K-Cups and the new capsules? Your imagination is the limit, but we'll bet given how much we've enjoyed the Lavazza offerings this can only mean great things in the years to come. We'll be covering this here at Single Serve Coffee and check out our sister site Single Serve Espresso.

Review: Francis Francis Y1 iperEspresso Machine

Review Single Serve Coffeeilly-machine_Y1full.jpg

Using iperEspresso capsules, the Francis Francis Y1 iperEspresso Machine is a new design from illy in the single serve coffee and espresso world. The Francis Francis Y1 iperEspresso Machine allows you to make shot of espresso or larger lungo cups of coffee to enjoy both hot and iced. We've been using the Francis Francis Y1 iperEspresso Machine over the past month since illy sent us a review model, and have to say this machine and system is nearly perfect.

SDC11553.jpg

Both espresso and lungo cups of coffee brewed hot or over ice have been excellent. There are 4 flavors of iperEspresso capsules available, but we've settled on a double shot of the medium roast over ice as our favorite. How does this system work? How is it different than other single serve coffee and espresso machines?
