The pour over dripper is one of those coffee methods that if done correctly yields amazing results. You use a paper filter and slowly pour water over a bed of dry coffee grounds while the brewed liquid drips out of the bottom.
Tons of coffee snobs rank the Kalita Wave higher than other pour-over brewers because its flat bottomed filters allow for a more even extraction. You've also got to love the way it looks with it's Art Deco styling and how it comes in a variety of styles.

If you're into single serve coffee you'd think owning a grinder would be a thing of the past - but you'd be wrong. There are just too many great micro-roast coffees out there to try and there are various ways to use ground coffee with your single cup brewer. The Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder is ideal for those of us who want to put a little muscle in our coffee grinding. The multi-purpose grinder prepares fresh coffee, salt, pepper, green tea, and even sesame seeds - so it's not just for coffee. The ceramic grinding mechanism never alters flavor of grinds, resulting in fresh, flavorful, and pure ingredients. The advanced ceramic is close in hardness to diamond - so don't even worry about it breaking when you get those harder than hard coffee beans. The reusable glass container stores up to 100 g of coffee grinds and is dishwasher safe.

We received the Eco-Fill Reusable Coffee Filter for Single Serve K-Cup Coffee Brewers just over a week ago, and the resulting coffee and ease of use is excellent. The Eco-Fill allows you to use your favorite coffee with your Keurig, Cuisinart, Breville, Mr Coffee and other single serve Brewers that use K-Cups, by allowing you to fill the Eco-Fill filter with any coffee you choose.
It's as easy as 2 simple steps:

Over at Businessweek there's a great article on the future of coffe and it's a bit lousy. Another Reason to Hate Global Warming: Lousy Coffee has informed the entire staff here at Single Serve Coffee that by 2080 we'll need to switch to another hot beverage to enjoy in the morning. What's the deal?
A recently published scientific study concludes that as much as 99.7 percent of wild Arabica coffee—the bean that accounts for 70 percent of the global market—may fall victim to rising temperatures by 2080. Farmers will still be able to cultivate Arabica coffee—at least for a while—but the bean’s genetic pool will be severely reduced.
Well perhaps they can somehow keep up the genetic diversity and maybe over the next 60+ years make the coffee tolerate the rising temperatures. Who knows but I'd like to think our kids will make the coffee choice over taste and not because it's just lousy.

We're impressed with the Impress Single Serve Coffee brewer. The Impress is a 2-piece nested coffee press with a to-go cup lid that brews a full-flavored great cup of coffee in 3 minutes or less.
How does it work?
After placing fresh grounds in the outer cup and pouring in hot water, you let it brew to your taste. Then, simply push the inner cup (reverse-flow filter inspired by the portafilter) all the way down, and clean full bodied coffee flows up into the vessel as the grounds get pushed down. That's it - you're done! Put a lid on it and go. The grounds stay at the bottom and out of your coffee until you are ready to pull the inner cup filter back out to clean it. The filter technology keeps the grounds from brewing any further after the coffee is pressed, so you only get the 3 minute brew you intended, even if the coffee stays put for a while longer!
Innovation is the game over at Kickstarter, and you can back this project which is over it's funding budget which means it's going to hopefully get made and in a timely fashion.

Pour over brewed coffee for some is the best single cup of coffee you can make. This German designed pour over coffee brewer takes the mess out of the process, and is also very colorful. With the Unplugged coffee maker all you need is a filter, ground beans, and hot water. Price is just under € 28.

Over at Kickstarter there's a really neat single serve coffee project that needs more backers to make it happen - the S Filter - a Reusable Coffee Filter for the Aeropress. The S Filter is an ultra-fine steel filter for AeroPress (read our review of the Aeropress here) coffee maker, and it's designed to last for years. With more than 50,000 holes per square inch, it will filter smaller particles than any other metal filter (by far), and it won't clog, fray or absorb oils.
We like the reusable part because we're eco-friendly here at Single Serve Coffee. We also think the fine ultra-fine mesh and results from it look good to us in the video after the jump - so good in fact we're going to be a backer.

Over in the Single Serve Coffee Forums there's a great post featuring a couple of Aeropress tips. We love the Aeropress (read our review here), and any tricks and tips are always welcome. Besides making a great cup of coffee the Aeropress itself is one of many inventions from Alan Adler inventor of the Aerobie flying disk. Yep - not only did Alan invent a great coffee press, he's got 40 other patents and lectures at Nasa. Okay back to the tips...
