Madrone River Table by Greg Klassen Furniture

River table DSC 2320

The Madrone River Table by Greg Klassen Furniture is simply a work of art in a table. The middle of the split pieces of wood is a blue water glass top that makes it seem like a river is flowing through the table. It’s an amazing design, and we simply couldn’t wait to share it with our Single Serve Coffee readers. We can imagine having a cup of coffee and reading some Flipboard with a river flowing through our coffee table nearby. Amazing.

Nespresso VertuoLine Diavolitto Capsules Review

Nespresso VertuoLine Diavolitto

We continue our VertuoLine capsule reviews today by checking out one of their strongest intensity espressos, the Nespresso VertuoLine Diavolitto Capsules. The name was the first thing that piqued our interest and while we don’t know how to read or speak Italian, we got a basic connotation of what was inferred. A quick bit of experimentation on Google Translate quickly proved us right… uh… well, sort of. While Diavolitto is itself not an Italian word (as far as we’re aware) it is derived from diavol, which is apparently the Italian Romanian word for devil.

Cortiça Cork Coffee Mug

Cork coffee mug

Originally a Kickstarter project, the Cortica Cork Coffee Mug was successfully funded and is now available for sale. The Cortiça Cork Coffee Mug is a porcelain travel mug wrapped and insulated with cork. It's 12 oz in size, sustainable, and eco friendly.

We love the simplicity of the design, and the double insulation of cork and porcelin. Also, cork and porcelain are two very natural products: bark and clay. Should your mug ever need to be thrown out, it will decompose and turn into fill, unlike metal or plastic that stay in the waste stream.

All orders will be shipping in October 2014, so we recommend you order a mug now and make it a holiday gift.

Recycle A Cup - Recycle the Plastic from K-Cups

Recycle cup shot

There’s been a bunch of different efforts to make recycling K-Cups much easier than just opening them up and composting the coffee grounds. Recycle A Cup cuts and separates used Keurig K-Cups for recycling and composting. The big trick for any product claiming do help you recycle K-Cups is to separate the foil lid and filter that contains coffee cleanly. 

We had great success using the Recycle A Cup with both Keurig Brewed K-Cups and non-licensed K-Cups from Martinson and others. The bottom of the K-Cup was cleanly cut, and we had no problem composting the coffee grounds. The Recycle A Cup also comes with extra blades you can put in the sides of it to ensure your Recycle A Cup can help you recycle many K-Cups after the first blades wear out.

The Recycle A Cup cuts the plastic bottom off of the K-Cup allowing you to recycle the plastic bottom, and then compost the coffee grounds from K-Cups. 

Full video after the jump with a step by step how to use the Recycle A Cup.

Keurig Brewed Seal Now on Target Archer Farms K-Cups and Others

15748935 201406271646

Looks like KGM have decided to grant "Keurig Brewed" licensing to most (if not all) of the previously unlicensed store brands from various grocery stores around USA & Canada as well as various department stores.

The latest is Target's Archer Farms K-Cups... they even have new flavors as well. We’re expecting to see most unlicensed K-Cups obtain a Keurig Brewed logo/license. What does this mean for the Keurig Brewed seal meaning - Keurig Brewed? We’re not sure. The Keurig Brewed seal means quality and safety according to Keurig. We also though it meant they packed and manufactured the K-Cups.

Time will tell if the Keurig Brewed seal continues to mean quality and excellent hot and cold beverages produced from K-Cups.

Nature Valley Creates First Single Serve Oatmeal Product for Keurig Brewers

Nature valley k cups

Nevermind Campbell Soup... looks like Nature Valley just one-upped Keurig at their own game and created the world's first unlicensed "single serve oatmeal" for Keurig brewers which they are dubbing "Nature Valley Bistro Cups". Apparently each box comes with 8 servings which are comprised of an oatmeal pouch, a mix-ins pouch of fruits/nuts, and a single cup which contains brown sugar & other flavorings. How does it work? You dump the oatmeal & mix-ins in a cup, then brew the sugar/flavoring over the top, and Nature Valley claims you get 80% more oatmeal in this new product vs. traditional oatmeal packets from competitors (i.e. Quaker).

We found 2 flavors on Walmart.com:

There's even videos at the bottom of each listing showing you how the process works, which we have included after the jump.

Nespresso VertuoLine Vanizio Capsules Review

Review nespresso vertuoline vanizio capsules Nespresso Vanizio

When we reviewed our first VertuoLine capsules a while back (the hazelnut flavored Hazelino), we noted how the flavoring tasted different and a bit off from what we’re used to seeing in a conventional flavored coffee produced from the likes of a Keurig or Tassimo system. Since we ALWAYS take our coffee black during reviews in order to notice any subtle flavor notes which might be hiding in the cup, we pretty much ignored Nespresso’s recommendations to also try their VertuoLine capsules with added creamer. 

Review nespresso vertuoline vanizio capsules IMGP5907

That was apparently a big mistake. Once we followed their suggestions, we noticed that the strange almost chemical hazelnut taste was replaced by a more subdued hazelnut flavor and that the harsher oily notes in the coffee became greatly reduced to more normal levels. It completely transformed the entire tasting experience to a degree we weren’t expecting. In hindsight, we’d like to offer an apology of sorts to Nespresso and would like to point out that while our original score of 91 - Exceptional still stands for the Hazelino capsules when taken black, we’d have to give a slightly higher score of 94 - Exceptional once you add creamer into the mix (sorry, we still can’t get used to the odd foreign hazelnut flavor).

How Baseball Put Better Coffee Into Our Homes

Whydowehavedrip coffee baseball

If you're wondering why we have better and better coffee in our homes today then our parents had in the 50s and 60s then you needn't look any further than baseball. Yes - baseball is responsible for drip coffee in our homes and the resurgence of coffee being a favorite among the Americans who drink it.

Sales of coffee in the 1960s had plummeted because percolator coffee was terrible. It was bitter and people were drinking coffee much less. Along came the invention of the commercial drip brewer from Bunn, and then Mr. Coffee decided to get into the consumer game and they need a pitch person - Joe DiMaggio. The rest is history, and has led us to where we are in a single serve coffee world. Why? People want great coffee at home, and we’ll do just about anything for it.

Check out this amazing history lesson on how baseball put coffee makers into our homes after the jump.
