Nespresso for U.S. Coffee Drinkers - VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee Maker

Nespresso Vertuo Line Single Serve Coffee Maker

Nestle and Nespresso are stepping up in size from espresso to single serve coffee with the VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee Maker. Trying to win more customers in the US is Nespresso's aim, and the $299 machine will produce eight types of 8-ounce servings and four espresso blends. The VertuoLine will be sold in the U.S. and Canada at Nespresso boutiques, online and at retailers including Macy's Inc, Bloomingdale's and Williams-Sonoma Inc. 

The new machine, which uses a different capsule, and won't be compatible with older Nespresso machines. We're not sure if the machine will be compatible with the existing set of Nespresso capsules. 

Nespresso represents about 25 percent of Nestle's coffee sales and 4 percent of its 92.4 billion francs in total revenue. So why do this right now? Besides the single serve coffee market growing in size year over year, Nespresso has sought to expand Nespresso outside Europe, where it faces an ever-increasing number of copycat capsules from rivals like Mondelez International Inc. This is much the same competition that Green Mountain faces with the after market and unlicensed K-Cups.

Will you be getting a Vertuo Nespresso brewer? We're pretty interested given how much we like their espresso. No exact date on the debut, but we expect it to go head to head with Keurig 2.0 this Fall.

JoeBot - The Robotic Keurig Single Serve Coffee Maker

Joebot single serve keurig robot

Sure making single serve coffee is pretty easy but it does take a lot our of us each morning. There's picking the coffee, opening the machine, and then having to push buttons to brew it. We're just tired from thinking about it. 

This is where the Robotic Keurig single serve coffee maker comes in - a company called FOCUS Integration had created the JoeBot. The JoeBot does more than just push the brew button on the Keurig. It can load in new capsules, swap out full and empty coffee cups, and even label the cardboard sleeve with a custom design.

Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Brewer Review - BVMC-KG2 Model


Mr Coffee BVMC KG2 KCup Brewer

As the only person in my household to enjoy a nice cup of Joe occasionally, I was on the hunt for a new K-Cup brewer that wouldn't take up much counter space, and also make a fresh cup of coffee each time I wanted one. The Mr. Coffee single serve coffee maker fit the bill.

I saw the Mr. coffee machine and it was smaller and more slim line for the counter top so I bought this as an upgrade for my coffee indulgence. A single serve brewer is ideal for me due to the fact that I want to enjoy the rich strong blends available without the hassle of learning where to get them and the correct way to make them.
