Breville YouBrew Coffee Maker

breville-youbrew-coffee-maker-cup-bdc600xl.jpg

YouBrew will grind and brew one cup of coffee, and
it will also make a full pot.

We've seen a lot of grind and brew, spoon your own cup of grounds, or using single serve coffee cartridges / capsules to make a cup of single serve coffee, and the promise always is the same - a great cup of coffee. So the YouBrew isn't going to break any boundaries in those categories but it does allow you to customize your brew strength with 7 settings that increase the amount of ground coffee, as well as your flavor profile with 5 settings that vary the steeping time of the coffee and water.

YouBrew gives you the flexibility to brew directly into your favorite cup, travel mug or the included glass carafe for weekend entertaining. That means it features an integrated burr grinder, which then grinds your choice of beans to the optimal size just prior to brewing for maximum freshness, flavor and aroma.

Senseo Twist Single Serve Coffee Maker from Philips

senseo_main1.jpg

Senseo has recently left the US, but given the recent redesign and Senseo Twist model - perhaps they're about to return? Philips has introduced a new logo and the Senseo Twist model in response to the earlier Senseo losing popularity to rivals like Green Mountain's Keurig line and the Tassimo line of single serve coffee makers.

Green Mountain Trademarks Rivo Name for Espresso Machine in the Works

espresso_romeo_low1.jpg

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc., which is rumored to introduce an espresso maker this year to compete with Starbucks Verismo trademarked the name Rivo. The name Rivo means "stream" in Italian, and was trademarked by Green Mountain's Keurig Inc. unit this year for electric brewing and electric espresso machines.

Green Mountain previously said it is working with Luigi Lavazza SpA to develop an espresso maker. Lavazza has invested heavily in Green Mountain and this partner ship makes sense. Lavazza, based in Italy, owned 5 percent of Green Mountain as of February 24.

Japanese Trevie Brewstar K-Cup Brewer

treviewjapanesebrewer.jpg

Over at ShoffeeBlog they've found a rather interesting gem in the single serve coffee world - the "Keurig" Trevie Brewer. They're unsure if it's licensed or not, but it does look like the Japan is ready for K-Cups and single serve coffee brewing.

We also really like the logo of 3 colored dots, but we're not sure if we wan to drink chartreuse colored coffee like the coffee cup in the picture. It looks more mustard than coffee, but it's nice to see if you buy the brewer and like the logo you can get hot drinks in all 3 colors.

Andis Company Single Cup Coffee Pod Brewer

andisoutofboxcoffeepodbrewer.jpg

The Andis Company has a coffee pod brewer now available, and we're pretty sure we've never seen it before. Given Andis makes mostly products used at salons or home hair cutting, perhaps this coffee pod brewer is made for salon use as an additional item to purchase to make that hair cutting visit all the better. If you go over to Ebay there seems to be both a single serve coffee pod brewer available and also they have a larger drip coffee brewer. Note - the smaller coffee pod brewer will only work with coffee pods (see our section of reviews here).

Brewing with the Bunn Trifecta MB Single Cup Coffee Maker

  Bunn_Trifecta_MB_Home_Brewer_unboxing.jpg

Toward the end of our unboxing post we promised more detail on the Trifecta's features, ease of use, and effectiveness in terms of single-serve brewing. Now it's time to deliver. We'll do so in two parts: (a) today's step-by-step walk-through of how to make a cup using this machine, highlighting important points along the way, and (b) a summary post next week discussing pros and cons. Let's start 'walking through' already!

Step 0. Wake up the Trifecta, if necessary

After 6 hours of inactivity, the Trifecta's heater drops from 200 degrees F to 140 to conserve energy. A quick press of the brew button or movement of the latch (with brew chamber in place) will start the roughly 1-minute process of getting the machine back to its optimal brewing temperature.

Unboxing the Bunn Trifecta MB Single Cup Brewer

  Bunn_Trifecta_MB_Home_Brewer_unboxing.jpg

Back in January, we first got word that Bunn might have a home version of the Trifecta in the works. A few days later were able to pass along more information, and then forum member EricBNC provided a first look/taste after trying out the machine at CoffeeCon in Chicago the weekend after its official release. At the time, Bunn graciously offered to provide a trial unit for us to review, but demand for the first run of Trifectas—assembled by hand in Springfield, IL—was high, so we took a deep breath and eagerly followed early adopters’ initial reports of the high-quality coffee the Trifecta was capable of producing. We’re happy to report that our trial unit has now arrived, and it was certainly worth the wait. How about some unboxing pictures?

The Trifecta arrived double-boxed. That "delicate electrical instrument" label on the outer box made us smile.
