Looks like the new Krups Home Cafe Coffee Pod Brewer is available at Amazon.com. It's priced at $130 and available from a ZShops seller. The price seems in line with expectations it would be more in the Keurig B50 price range. We will be receiving the Krups Home Cafe Coffee Pod Brewer to review soon and should have a run down on how it's changed from earlier Home Cafe offerings.
"Krups expertise in coffee brewing is combined with the convenience of Home Cafe coffee pods to produce a consistent, custom brewed cup of hot coffee in less than a minute. No coffee mess, no unused coffee down the drain, just perfect pressure-brewed coffeehouse taste on demand."

Charlie Golick, a Lexxus International representative sent us in the newly released Gourmet Coffee Café to review. The Gourmet Coffee Café is a single serve coffee pod brewer utilizing an espresso, coffee, and tea pod holder. You'll be able to order the Gourmet Coffee Café pods from Lexxus International representatives.
One of the things that distinguishes the Gourmet Coffee Café from other single serve coffee brewers is the ability to make espresso, cappuccinos, lattes, regular coffee, and teas all from one single serve coffee brewer. The Gourmet Coffee Café has a milk frother on the side that allows for well - milk frothing. This little innovation makes the Gourmet Coffee Café the only single serve coffee brewer we know of with this innovation.

Charles Golick, a Lexxus International representative of the Gourmet Coffee Cafe system has sent in a machine for review along with a bunch of pods. We first found out about this story last month. Apparently they are just starting to ship the Gourmet Coffee System in the US.
If you don't know that much about the company Lexxus International - either did we. After a little digging we found Lexxus offers home based business opportunities to people wanting to sell and represent Lexxus products.
We will be reviewing the Gourmet Coffee Cafe over the next few weeks and will run it through all the Single Serve Coffee test plans we can think of.

Why can't they release one of these clear blue beauties in the US? Wow. It's like the iMac of the Senseo world. Thanks to the folks at Cafepods.com for sending this in.

We've been trying to get our hands on a Nespresso machine for a few weeks now. This is in the same league of cost and machine as the FrancisFrancis!, and more like the Keurig or Tassimo machine because of the Nespresso cup/pod that the machine uses. The new Romeo is quite the machine - inspired from Romeo & Juliet. As you can see in the picture - you put the Nespresso pod in the machine at the top, and the coffee comes out to meet your cup below.
Very cool. :-)
Update: Read our full review of the Nespresso Romeo from Single Serve Coffee.com

More on the new Home Cafe Coffee Pod brewer from Krups coming this fall. Also - this is a killer run down of the current state of the single serve set of brewers available.
CBS News | Java Nirvana In Your Kitchen | March 21, 2005 13:00:03:
Coffee Giant Krups is introducing a brand new pod machine called the Krups Home Cafe, at the Housewares trade show in Chicago. Gregg offered a sneak peek with a single-cup coffee brewer that uses pressure-brewing technology. Specially designed Millstone coffee pods can brew either one or two cups of coffee at a time. This model also allows consumers to customize the amount and flavor of their coffee by setting the system for a 6 oz. or 9 oz. cup of coffee or even up to a full 18 oz. travel mug. The cups can even be of different flavors, thanks to two independent pod holders. Retails for $150.

I'm not sure about a breakthrough, but it was decent coffee none-the-less. Looks like Gevalia and others are going after the office market and positioning the "freshness" and convenience of the individually wrapped pods.
Gevalia® Pods Serve Up a Gourmet Brew Breakthrough @ Vending Market Watch News at AMonline.com:
The European tradition of Gevalia®, the trusted brand in gourmet coffee for over 150 years, has reached a new level of sophistication with Gevalia pods. Gevalia pods deliver 100 percent Arabica coffee and tea in a convenient single-serve format for an on-demand, gourmet hot beverage experience.

The Krups Home Café system will offer unique features including dual-cup capacity, several cup-size options and a built-in water filtration system. The Krups Home Café model can brew either one or two cups of coffee at a time, and with two independent pod holders, each cup can be a different variety of creamy or black coffee.
The original Home Café machines have received mixed reviews from us and from Single Serve Coffee readers (we reviewed the Mr. Coffee Home Café and the Black & Decker Home Café machines). I'm hoping that many of the issues with the first Home Café macines have been fixed, and so far - it looks like many have.
We should receive a review machine in the mid-late June time frame, and will let you know when this new single serve coffee machine arrives.

Looks like you large mug toting Single Serve Coffee drinkers will get your prayers answered. This Fall, The Senseo will be updated with a new shorter spout to accommodate larger sized mugs.
Single Serve Coffee.com: Will there be an update to the Senseo this Fall?
Senseo: As you know, we have 94% of Senseo purchasers that say they are very or extremely satisfied with Senseo. With that said, we are making a change that we expect to bring this number even higher. We will be shortening the spout to accommodate larger coffee mugs. The new height will allow the consumer to fit over 90% of coffee mugs underneath the spout.
That's great news! I can't say that I don't love my Senseo almost completely, but I could love it even more if it fit a larger sized mug. I'll have even more updates from my discussion with the Senseo folks soon.
