Starbucks Verismo Single Serve Coffee Maker Arrives for Review

580verismoallcolors

That's right we've gotten our hands on the Starbucks 580 Single Serve Coffee and Espresso maker to review. We've had it for just a few days drinking lattes, shots of espresso, and House blend brewed coffee. So far the Verismo is delivering on all it's promises. Also - if you're looking for one of the Verismo machines check out Starbucks stores or your local Sur La Table or Williams Sonoma. Williams Sonoma currently is selling the V-585 Machine only.


Starbucksverismointhehouse

Here's some details on the Starbucks Verismo Single Serve Coffee and Espresso brewer:

  • Starbucks quality lattes, espresso and brewed coffee, all from one machine
  • Lattes are made to our café standard of caramelly, rich espresso and natural, creamy 2% milk
  • Fresh, natural milk makes creamy, sweet, frothy 2% milk that is perfect for Starbucks Lattes
  • Uses Swiss-engineered high-pressure technology (19 bars) to deliver a caramelly, rich Starbucks quality espresso shot
  • Functions as both a high-pressure (espresso) and low-pressure (brewed coffee) machine with automatic temperature settings
  • Pods are made using 100 percent arabica beans and roasted at the peak of freshness – the same coffee we serve and sell in our cafés
  • Pods available in Espresso Roast, Decaf Espresso Roast, as well as the full Starbucks Coffee Roast Spectrum (Blonde, Medium, and Dark)
  • Sleek design with small footprint that blends seamlessly on countertop, with a removable container for used pods
  • Two machine models available – 580 (base) and V-585 (premium) will be sold at Verismo.com, Starbucks stores, and specialty retailers

A special thanks to Starbucks for sending us the machine to review. More at Starbucks Verismo.

Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Single Serve Coffeemaker

Hamiltonflexbrew

The Hamilton 49995 Beach FlexBrew Single Serve Coffeemaker is compatible with coffee grounds, K-Cup packs or soft coffee pods. We already have seen the Bunn MCU which can brew coffee with grounds, coffee pods, and K-Cups, but it's surprising to see Hamilton Beach get into this multi-brewer arena but given the expiration of the various K-Cup patents more K-Cup brewers are sure to appear over time.

Other features of the Hamilton 49995 Beach FlexBrew Single Serve Coffeemaker include:

  • Adjustable cup rest allows for standard-size cups or travel mugs
  • Durable, stainless steel features and dishwasher safe, removable parts
  • 10-oz. brewing capacity (travel mug not included)
  • Coffeemaker shuts off automatically when brew cycle is complete

Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System

Rivofromkeuriglavazza

In partnership with Lavazza coffee, Green Mountain and Keurig are introducing the Rivo System designed to deliver coffee shop-quality cappuccinos and lattes at home using fresh milk. The new Keurig Rivo System combines the simplicity of Keurig single cup technology with the authenticity of Italy's favorite coffee, Lavazza, and marks GMCR's entrance into the espresso, cappuccino and latte brewer category.

This also means Green Mountain is going head to head with the recently announced Verismo single serve coffee and espresso maker from Starbucks. The Starbucks Verismo uses shelf stable milk capsules, but the Rivo uses fresh milk from your own refrigerator. This also means there's going to be K-Cups, Vue Packs, and Rivo Packs for consumers to pick from to use in their K-Cup Brewer, Vue System, and Rivo System.

The Rivo will be available just in time for the holiday season, the Rivo System will be sold exclusively at select Bloomingdales' locations beginning in mid-November and is expected to become more widely available, including on www.keurig.com, by the spring of 2013.

Keurig Rivo Espresso Machine from Keurig and Lavazza

rivo_machine_capsules.jpg

Over in the Single Serve Coffee Forums yesterday one of our community members posted Keurig Rivo Espresso Machine Available Soon? We thought the Rivo Espresso machine from was coming soon, but we didn't expect pictures and information regarding the machine in October. Lavazza has taken down the pages since yesterday - so maybe the Rivo isn't ready for prime time just yet, but we're glad we got the details on this new amazing espresso maker.

The design of the machine looks like a combo of espresso maker and milk frother. The machine has a milk frothed pitcher in it much like the Nespresso Lattissima, and it looks like there is going to be 4 blends of espresso at launch. We have no details on pricing just yet, and we're not sure when it will launch either.

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.
