Senseo Single Serve Supreme Coffee Machine Returns

41dN7y9OiuL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

Unavailable until recently, the Senseo’s Supreme Single-Serve gourmet coffeemaker boasts an array of improvements designed to enable the consumer to further personalize their coffee experience at home. We really liked the Senseo SL7832/55 Single Serve Supreme Coffee Machine, and it's nice to see this more upscale model of the Senseo available again. The Senseo Supreme coffeemaker enables consumers to select their desired coffee size by using an interactive LCD display.

Unlike the original Senseo coffeemaker that brewed a maximum of 8 ounces, the Supreme can brew up to 10 ounces. The Supreme model also comes with an adjustable spout, which can raise and lower to accommodate different size mugs. You'll also be taking less trips to refill the reservoir because the Senseo Supreme features a 33% larger water reservoir - which means you can now generates four 8-ounce cups from a full tank. The Senseo Supreme is only available in chrome silver.

Review: Nespresso CitiZ Automatic Espresso Maker and Milk Frother

Review Single Serve Coffeenespresso_citiz_frothercombo.jpg

Nespresso has continued to expand it's single serve espresso and coffee offerings this year with the CitiZ line, and we're kind enough to send us along a test unit to review here at Single Serve Coffee. CitiZ Nespresso machines are sleek and have modern colors along with exceptional design lines that enhance not only your kitchen, but your coffee morning. We reviewed the CitiZ stand alone machine earlier this year, and we we're impressed. How much does the milk frother add to the equation and footprint?


SDC11013.jpg

We think if you're going to be using the Aeroccino a ton for making lattes and cappuccinos, having it integrated with the machine gives you a larger footprint, but the aesthetic is killer. It was hard to let this one go off the test kitchen counter, and the powder coated black frother blends nicely into the landscape of the coffee base.

$850 Newco Coffee Pod Brewer - Uber Pod Coffee

newco_smart_brewer.jpg
The Newco Coffee Pod Brewer is for commercial use,
but don't you just want one?

Newco's $850 Newco Coffee Pod Brewer isn't really for home use but it does have a ton of interesting features that might make you shell out big bucks just to have one at home. Also at 1750 watts of raw coffee pod brewing power, you'd better have this on it's own circuit and we think a big one. You can even use it as a hot water source for soups, and perhaps it even has warp drive.

One feature we really like that it has is the SMART brewer technology. The SMART CUP brewing system has been designed to allow for different brew settings for each kind of coffee or tea. Since all products are brewed the same way, the brew time greatly affects the taste of the drink. The shorter the brew time, the milder the beverage. you have the choice once you select the type of POD to select the strength. The individual POD holder, with its sensor technology, alerts the brewer to use the correct brew recipe for your beverage.

Keurig Elite B40 Single Serve Coffee Brewer - The $99 K-Cup Brewer

Keurig-B40-Lg.jpg

We simply think you can't beat the Keurig Elite B40 Brewer at $99. It has most of the features of the more expensive line, and it also has a water reservoir that the lower priced $89.99 Keurig Mini B30 doesn't. That means no trips to refill the water each time, and piping hot single serve coffee each time (read our thoughts and impressions on the Keurig B40 brewer here).

  • Brews a single cup with the press of a button
  • Brews a 7.25 or 9.25 ounce cup in seconds
  • Optional Auto-off feature shuts down brewer after 2 hours
  • Removable 48-oz. water reservoir

At Keurig Elite B40 Brewer

Check out the rest of the Keurig brewers including the Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig Platinum B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer , and the Keurig Mini B30.

Nescafe Dolce Gusto Single Serve Coffee Machine - Round and Funky

wtb_img_dups.jpg

We're still very much in love with our Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine here at single serve coffee (read our review of the Dolce Gusto here). Each week we fire it up and have what we would like to think is a nearly perfect latte or other hot beverage. The thing about the Dolce Gusto is - it just feels different, and makes a great cup of single serve coffee. Operating it is easy - as the capsules come packed with a milk and coffee option in one box, and it has a variety of flavors to keep you interested. It should be an interesting 2010 for the Dolce Gusto, with more flavors available hopefully in the new year.

  • Single-serve brewing system for gourmet coffee drinks
  • Uses coffee capsules; no messy grinding or clean up
  • Removable 51-ounce water tank; removable drip tray
  • 15-bar pump; custom-control lever adjusts the strength
  • Measures 8-2/5 by 12-2/5 by 13 inches

Review: Tassimo T65 Single Serve Coffee Maker - T-Disc Brewer

Review Single Serve Coffee

tassimot65brewerreview.jpg

Tassimo has launched a new Tassimo T65 Single Serve Coffee Maker that features a new Multilingual LC display. The multi-lingual display will help Tassimo launch into new and existing markets without the need to localize the machines for each market thus saving money. There's also a new set of lights for cup stand illumination.

The illuminated cup stand of the Tassimo T65 Brewer.

After a few weeks with this Tassimo model what stands out? Is it a better brewer overall? We have to say the addition of the illuminated cup stand and the LCD display does set this brewer apart but at a cost.

Update: Tassimo is now calling this system a "brewbot". What's a brew bot? 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 machines are the same as earlier Tassimo Bosch models above but being marketed as brewbots.

SDC10925.jpg

Tassimo has sent us one of the new Tassimo T65 Single Serve Coffee Makers to review. Right away you can see the difference in the attractive packaging, and how the removable cup stand will allow you to use larger travel mugs.

We'll have a full review soon, but details on this new brewer are below.

SDC10927.jpg
