Review: CBTL Americano Single Serve Coffee, Espresso, and Hot Beverage System

Review Single Serve Coffee Americano_Black_Medium.jpg

CBTL has introduced the Americano single serve coffee, espresso, and hot beverage system recently, and it's packed with features you'll love in a single serve coffee maker. We received the CBTL system from them (thanks for sending) a few weeks ago and have been using it daily since. The machine look and feel is modern, and there's even an adjustable cup stand that just makes sense when you make coffee, espresso, and also hot chocolate with such a machine. We also really love the fact you can use a really tall travel mug to make coffee to go.

Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Maker Looks Great in White

31F9bfS4PsL._AA300_.jpg

We've not seen the Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Maker in white, and right off the bat we like it.  We think it has an almost ethereal quality - almost Tron like in it's look and feel. Powered by Keurig brewing technology for coffeehouse quality at home, the Mr. Coffee single serve coffee maker is compatible with Keurig K-Cup portion packs. It features a removable drip tray, On/Off Indicator Light, and brews a cup of coffee in just minutes. If you need more details on this coffee maker you can read our full review here.

CBTL Americano Single Serve Coffee Maker Arrives for Review

Photo Jan 11, 7 20 49 AM.jpg

We're very excited that CBTL has sent over their Americano single serve coffee and espresso maker to review. We've had it out of the box for just over a few hours and so far - awesome. We've received a sampler box of flavors to try out, and we'll also compare it to the other Kaldi CBTL machine we've been using over the past 3-4 months.

Nescafe's Dolce Gusto Ad Campaign for 2012

nescafe2012ad.jpg

We're not sure if this ad campaign for Nescafe's Dolce Gusto single serve coffee maker will connect with audiences or not, but it is indeed interesting. Sure - there's the italian barista who is a stereotype - but then again - he's a handsome devil who's just in love with coffee - is that so wrong? Well it just might be but you'll need to take a view or two yourself to form your own single serve coffee opinion.

Dualit Piccolina Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker

detail_1212.jpg

A different design than the Dualit Rapido, the Dualit Piccolina coffee capsule machine from Dualit is packed full of user friendly features. This machine is only available in Europe (another Caffitaly variant), and is available Online & at John Lewis stores in the UK. It's nice to see how the worldwide counterparts differ in color and tone from the US variants that CBTL is featuring. We think the simple black is nice, but we do miss the bright blue and red CBTL offers here in the US.

  • A unique twin pressure system provides (15 bar) for making espressos or low pressure (3.5 bar) for longer drinks to suit your coffee preference
  • No mess - with sealed capsules which drop into an integral drawer when used
  • Eco-friendly, with auto shut-off and recyclable capsules
  • Quick to heat up, with coffee dispensed in under two minutes
  • Easy to use, with drop in capsules, pre-set functions, removable 1.2L water tank, and auto-descale programme
  • Adjustable spout height and temperature
  • For frothed or heated milk, partner with the versatile Latteccino to create all you milk based coffee drinks.

Dualit Rapido Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker

We've been getting a lot of reader write ins about the Dualit Rapido (a Caffitaly machine) and the same machine used for CBTL here in the US. It's another jack of all trades little wonder, and it will make a variety of coffee drinks, and has a very nice design to boot. You'll also only find this machine in Europe, but if you want the same features we encourage you to try out the CBTL machine here in the US.

  • A unique twin pressure system provides (15 bar) for making espressos or low pressure (3.5 bar) for longer drinks to suit your coffee preference

Scanomat's Top Brewer keeps all the grinding and brewing hardware under the counter and allows you to order up your drink by using an app on an iPhone. There's even an LCD touchscreen on the counter to serve as an alternate way to order up your beverage.The Top Brewer can produce up to four cups of coffee per minute, and is self-cleaning.

The Top Brewer can be configured to dispense hot and cold water, milk, fruit juices or even just steam for blanching vegetables. Pricing is yet to be determined but we're not thinking under $100. :-)

Mr. Coffee KG2 K-Cup Single Serve Coffee Maker

41Fj6o13TnL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Powered by Keurig brewing technology, the Mr. Coffee KG2 K-Cup Single Serve Coffee Maker is compatible with Keurig K-Cup portion packs. It features a removable drip tray, and has an On/Off Indicator Light.

Other features include:

  • Personal Brewer Choice of 1 cup size (9 oz.)
  • Single-use water reservoir
  • Energy Savings Mode – Auto Off after 90 seconds

We like the look of the KG2 over the KG1 model. It just feels a bit less Star Trek and more from the future of single serve coffee. Like the KG1, this brewer is also perfect for on the go and the single-use water reservoir keeps each cup of coffee fresh the first time. Read our review of the KG1 from Mr. Coffee to get an idea of how this brewer works.
