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.

Flavia Single Cup Coffee Systems

I used to use this coffee machine when I worked at Abuzz. I remember after putting in my first "Flavia" pack and brewing up a cup, "Not only is this a great place to work - no one is going to yell at me for not making another pot." Well - the coffee wasn't amazing - but I bet in 5 years it's gotten better.

Black & Decker Home Cafe Single Serve Coffee Machine

I have yet to see this in person, but it looks like another Pod "system". The B&D Home Cafe uses the Millstone coffee pods. I don't remember ever drinking Millstone coffee - which can't be good. As with the other coffee machines in the Single Serve Category - this one has not shipped yet. However - the Senseo is showing up all over and I've even seen ads in the Boston Globe for it. Let me know if anyone sees or tries this coffee machine. Kitchen & Housewares: Black & Decker HCC100 Home Café Single Serve Coffee Brewing System, Black

K-Cup & The Brewer from Green Mountain

kcupbrewer.jpgThis is an interesting little single serve coffee machine - the pods it takes are multi-use it seems. Has anyone used this machine? It's about $199.95 as well - putting it into the - THIS HAD BETTER BE GOOD COFFEE or ELSE category. Check it out at:

It appears that the coffee comes in a small "mini-moo" sized container that is inserted above the coffee. Looks like you can even get Teas as well.

The defining characteristic in this new "Single Serve Coffee Machine" arena is going to be what you can brew in any of these machines. Enough ranting - check out:
