simplehuman Single Serve Pod Brewer Arrives for Review

Img 1659

The new simplehuman pod brewer has arrived for review. We can tell you right now - the pod brewer looks pretty amazing in the single serve testing kitchen, and we are really impressed with the coffee and the packaging. YES - THE PACKAGING. If you've opened an iPod and had the experience of how amazing the packaging of a product can be, then this is simply the same experience in single serve coffee. We'll be testing this over the holidays with all the relatives to get their perspective on what they think of the simplehuman pod brewer.

The new simplehuman brewer features a 42 oz. water tank, brews 5 oz or 8 oz cups of coffee, and fits all standard-size pods (we're thinking 62 mm - Senseo sized pods). The simplehuman single cup pod brewer also comes with two pod holders - one for coffee and one for tea. The brewer is priced at $129.99 and FREE shipping is included.

Black & Decker Black Home Cafe Generation 2 at Amazon.com

B000Bhihkc.01-A1Vc38T7Yxb528.Lzzzzzzz It's a Home Cafe morning here at Single Serve Coffee.com. We didn't expect to have both the Mr. Coffee and the Black & Decker Home Cafe updates in one day but well - here they are. The new Black & Decker Home Cafe Generation 2 is a bit more compact and features a total redesign. That's all we really know. We did venture out to Target as well to see this in person and they didn't have anything but the machine with a missing water tank and none in stock. Also the Home Cafe web site has not been updated with information on the new Home Cafe.

We can only hope the quality of the machine has been improved. The first generation model didn't pass the Single Serve Coffee review process with flying colors and several threads and posts continued to point out the quality concerns of this single serve coffee brewer. We will be receiving one of these to review in the coming weeks and will have full review of the new Black & Decker Home Cafe.

New Mr. Coffee® Home Café Single Serve Coffee Maker

It's been over a year since we tested the original Mr. Coffee Home Cafe. We liked this Home Cafe single serve coffee brewer much better than the Black & Decker Home Cafe. The quality of the Mr. Coffee was a little better and we also felt the coffee it produced was a little better as well.

The new Mr. Coffee Home Cafe Single Serve Coffee Maker - Model AT13 features:

  • Utilizes Pre-Packed Folgers® and Millstone® Coffee Pods, to Bring the Coffeehouse Home
  • Brews Regular/Flavored Pods and Specialty Pods (Cappuccino Drinks)
  • Adjustable Brew Head Prevents Splatters and Allows for a Variety of Mug Sizes

  • Lighted On/Off Switch
  • Bonus: 8 Folgers® and Millstone® Coffee Pods Starter KitCoffee Pod Storage Container

Expect a full review in the coming weeks. We did venture out to Target yesterday and have to say it does look incredibly different. Let's just hope it's incredibly better.

Review: Grindmaster OPOD001 Precision Pod Brewing System from Single Serve Coffee

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsLg Opod001-1

We received the Grindmaster Precision Pod Brewing System in mid-September and you may have been wondering - what have they been doing all that time? Why haven't we had a review sooner? Well, we like to put a machine through it's paces and reviewing machines of this caliber takes some time.

However, you may have noticed we've been mentioning and using the machine in several of the reviews over the past month. Some of the reviews included:

Starbucks Coffee Pod Review:

"We fired up the Grindmaster Pod Brewer we are currently testing. We stuck with a 6 oz setting on the Grindmaster with the darker setting (there's a dial where you can pick the level of coffee intensity you want). The Grindmaster pre-saturates the coffee pod for a better extraction, and then brews up a cup of 6 oz of coffee. We've found the 6 oz size to have the right amount of extraction to water ratio for our tasting habits. We then sampled the coffee with and without cream and sugar.

Review: Lavazza Espresso Point

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsLavazza Espresso MatineeIn our continued commitment to review all the Single Serve Coffee systems, we bring you the Lavazza Espresso Point. When Single Serve Coffee started early last year, the Lavazza Espresso Point was one of the first single serve coffee machines we ran news on.

We received the Lavazza Espresso Point from Lilli at Aromacc.com. They run a web site called Aroma Cafe Culture that features many of the products you can get from Lavazza. Lavazza is a very old and very established Italian coffee brand and the Lavazza Espresso Point is a very unique hot beverage system.

The Lavazza Espresso Point uses prepackaged, gas-flushed cartridges, combined with Lavazza's proprietary machine technology. In a world where we have coffee pods, K-Cups, T-Discs, Espresso Pods, Coffee Capsules, it's quite amazing that there is yet another type of coffee cartridge or format in the single serve coffee world. But the fact remains - how good is the coffee from the Lavazza Espresso Point system and what are the details behind this system?

X10 Mini Brewer Single Serve Coffee Maker

One CupI know the thought of grinding any amount of coffee to a single serve coffee drinker might be blasphemy, but the X-10 Mini Brewer is a great way to get a single perfect cup. Simply pour hot water over some fresh ground coffee, and the X10 will filter the coffee and brew a single cup inside the mug.

It's old school, but we have room in our coffee heart for all things single serve coffee. Now, why can't they do this with a coffee pod or K-Cup?
