Tassimo Site Launches

deguster_int_left_img2.jpgThe Tassimo site in English and French has launched finally. Looks like it makes a perfect cup of expresso, hot tea, coffee - you name it - maybe even chicken soup!!!

It uses a cup system - like the Keurig - but of course different as the Keurig is patented. There is no information on where to buy it - or when it's available unless I'm not smart enough to find it on the web site.

It also appears in the picture that Braun is making main brewer - with Kraft making the cups.

Does anyone else know any details?

Bunn Jumping Into Single Serve Coffee with My Cafe

Bunn is jumping into the Single Serve Coffee craze with their My Cafe Professional grade brewer for coffee and tea. I would assume this will use a similiar pod system like Melitta or the Senseo - however - they do claim "professional grade" - and this makes me think there may be more to this machine than meets the eye.

Making a Cup of Senseo Coffee

Brewing a cup of Senseo coffee is pretty darn easy. You simply fill up the water, put in the pods, put the cup under the spout, and push the brew button. But - what does that coffee look like? I brewed a nice cup of dark roast coffee for you to see the color and body of the coffee, the froth, and then the final mixed cup of cream and sugar. You'll quickly see that even after the cup is brewed the froth is very rich and thick.

Each of the thumbnails below holds a small avi video clip. I apologize in advance for the first two not being rotated properly - but we're on a budget at Single Serve Coffee.com. :-) You'll need Quicktime from Apple or Windows Media Player.

Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System

toddy.jpg
This looks like a cross between a coffee press and a single serve coffee nightmare. Has anyone used this thing?

"The Toddy brewer produces a low acid, espresso-like concentrate - good for about 32 cups of HOT coffee per batch. Just add water for a distinctively fresh, smooth taste that has delighted connoisseurs for some 40 years. And, refrigerated, there's no waste - Toddy can be made one cup at a time."

Tassimo from Kraft

Kraft has a very unique looking entry into the Single Serve Coffee market. Tassimo makes tea, coffee, and espresso. Don't expect Tassimo in the US anytime soon - it's rolling out in France first.

"With Tassimo, your wish will be granted in seconds...whether it is an exquisite espresso, an indulgent cappuccino, even a gentle cup of tea or a rich hot chocolate - all using quality brands that you know and love. Whatever you wish for, the Tassimo hot beverage system makes it simply perfect...at the touch of a button."

Consumer Pod Brewer

cpod001.jpgGrindmaster Corporation has a "Consumer Pod Brewer" that looks to be a contender of sorts. It it's not the best looking brewer - but it does take a variety of pods from other machines (or so it says)

"Precision Brewr Single Cup Brewing System - Proprietary pod-based brewing system combines commercial infusion technology with digitally controlled brew sequencing to ensure a great tasting cup of coffee everytime, in less then one minute."

Coffee Pod Machine Recap

This article has a great recap on the 3 big players so far in the Single Serve/One Cup Coffee battle that is brewing!

The pods, which look like teabags, contain enough coffee for one serving, and the machines brew one cup at a time. The machine knows just how much water to use, so you get a perfect cup of coffee every time, in about a minute, with no messy coffee grounds or pot to wash.
