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

It's the last month of 2009, and this will be our last Top 10 Best Selling Single Serve Coffee Makers list for the year. Keurig is now dominating the top 4, and you'll notice the Senseo single serve coffee pod brewer is still missing from the list but should return shortly due to availability now at most retailers. The new Tassimo TAS 65 has also shown up on the list right behind the Tassimo T45 Suprema model. Note both of the Tassimo models are still eligible for a $50 dollar mail in rebate so if you want a Tassimo now is the time.

31LLg9q3ewL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

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.

Tassimo T65 Single Serve Coffee Maker Arrives for Review

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 also love any appliance in our kitchen that features a cool blue led light - and the Tassimo T65 Single Serve Coffee Maker illuminated cup stand is the bomb. We'll have a full review soon, but details on this new brewer are below.

SDC10927.jpg

The T-65 Tassimo Bosch single cup T-disc brewer features a new Multilingual LC display. We're pretty sure the multi-lingual display will help Tassimo launch into new and existing markets without the need to localize the machines for each market saving money. There's also a new set of lights for cup stand illumination.

Key new features of the Tassimo T-65 Single Serve Coffee Maker (read our T-45 review for all the features of the Tassimo system):
  • Multilingual LC display

Breville BKC700XL Gourmet Single Serve Coffee Maker - Now with Quiet Brew Technology

41ObSBUg+3L._SL500_AA280_.jpg

Breville has updated their K-Cup brewer with the ultra quiet brew technology. This has to be our only complaint about the previous model - it was loud. The Breville Gourmet Single Serve Coffee Maker also features a powerful 1,500-watt heating element brews coffee efficiently fast to five different brew sizes. It has a Sleek stainless-steel design. Also new is the iced beverage function which dispenses a concentrated 3-1/2-ounce shot of tea or coffee. Dilute with ice and add water, milk or sweeteners for an iced tea or coffee.

Accessories include charcoal water filter, My K-CUP for your own roast, measuring scoop, 18 K-Cup variety pack. One of the best features about the Breville Gourmet Single Serve Coffee maker is the integrated My K-Cup and spoon - it's just too cool to pop open the top and store it away.

Top 10 Best Selling Single Serve Coffee Makers - October 2009

singleservecoffeemakers.jpg

Fall is upon us, and so is our Top 10 Best Selling Single Serve Coffee Makers list for October. Keurig is now dominating the top two slots, and you'll notice the Senseo single serve coffee pod brewer is now missing from the list. Why? There are still no Senseos available at retail in any quantity that we can find because of their product recall and lack of a product relaunch. The Home Cafe still hangs and trails the long tail of single serve coffee at number 10. We're wondering when the new Tassimo TAS 65 will start to appear on the list - but so far it's older Bosch sibling is still the most widely available Tassimo model.

Dolce Gusto Single Serve Coffee Maker Redesigned

krups2-550x520.jpg

There's a completely redesigned Dolce Gusto in town, but it's in a town in Europe. Single Serve Coffee reader Cliff wrote in about this crazy post over at Fubiz (a french site) about the new Dolce Gusto single serve coffee maker design. We love our original Dolce Gusto (read our full review here), and we look forward to this alien like cousin to visit our kitchen soon. No word on North American pricing and availability, but click on through to Fubiz for a video of the Dolce Gusto redesign as well.

Senseo Quadrante Coffee Pod Brewer Pictures and Details

SDC10564.jpg

We've recently received the Senseo Quadrante from Europe from Senseo's PR agency, and thought an unboxing was in order. Given the power convertor issues we've had trying to get the machine to run on a US circuit, we're not sure if we'll fully be able to review the Senseo Quadrante in the short term. Regardless, the machine in person is really stunning. The design lines are clean, and the refresh to a cube form welcome.

SDC10566.jpg
The double pod holder is loose on top.

The machine features the same one cup and double cup buttons, along with a redesigned water reservoir that is much easier to grip and hold. The big change is the coffee pod drawer area - the entire top pops open for you to put your single or set of coffee pods into.
