Acaia: The Minimalist Coffee Brewing Scale

Acaia Brewing Scale

Over at Kickstarter we’ve found a great coffee scale called Acaia. Acaia is a simple minimalist coffee brewing scale featuring an LED readout, and a clean design. Why do you need a coffee scale when using a pour over coffee maker? If you want consistency in your cup of pour over coffee you’ll want to weigh the coffee and water to get it right every time. The Acaia scale also works with your iPhone using an app to communicate via Bluetooth about various brewing methods and times.

What To Do with Your Old Drip Brew Coffee Maker

Your Coffee Maker Can Steam Poach and Grill

Morgan Walker/ NPR

Over at IO9 they’ve created quite an article from an NPR inspired piece on what to do with that old brew coffee maker we know you aren’t using. Sure single serve coffee makers soon will be able to make Cambell’s soup, but if you have an old drip brew coffee maker with a hot plate you can steam, poach, and grill food with it. Yes - yes you can.
  •  Steam: The basket at the top is a great place to steam vegetables. You can throw in broccoli, cauliflower or any vegetable that cooks in about the same time as those.
  • Poach: The carafe at the bottom serves as a simple vessel for poaching fish and chicken. You can also use it to hard-boil eggs or make couscous and oatmeal.
  • Grill: This technique is a bit more advanced — and time-consuming. But if you're really itching for a grilled cheese sandwich or a cinnamon bun in a motel room, the coffee maker's burner can serve as a miniature grill.

Making Poached Salmon in a Coffee Maker
Morgan Walker/ NPR

NPR has a full article on how to create various recipes including poached salmon. Make sure if you do continue to use your coffee maker for coffee that a salmon is not being poached. Poached salmon coffee anyone?

Jetsetter Red Eye Cups for Keurig K-Cup Brewers Review

Jetsetter coffee kcup

Back in the early 1950s, a term emerged to describe groups of socialites that travelled the World by jet… this term was dubbed Jetsetter and is the basis of the Jetsetter Coffee Company. Taking a classic aerial theme of that era, Jetsetter have named their flavors after aerial terminology and have created a rather unique branding overall. We have to admit we really like this approach as its attention to detail makes things all the more memorable.

Presto MyJo Single Serve Coffee Maker

Presto MyJo Single Serve French Press Uses K Cups

The Presto MyJo Single Serve Coffee Maker resembles a french press coffee maker and uses K-Cups or a reusable coffee filter for brewing. After featuring the Cafejo Single Serve French Press recently - it's interesting to see another K-Cup french press in such a short time. The Presto MyJo also comes with a reusable coffee filter so you don't have to just use K-Cup portion packs. MyJo gets you the convenience of a single cup coffee maker without the high cost.

Original Donut Shop Coffee - Sweet & Creamy Nutty Hazelnut Iced Coffee K-Cups Review

 

Sweet and Creamy K Cups Hazelnut

Last year, we reviewed a K-Cup that had the most ridiculously long name we've seen to date and at that time, we only had 1 flavor to review. Since then, Green Mountain Coffee has supplied us with the 2nd flavor in the line-up which is what we're checking out today. These K-Cups also have a ridiculously long name, so we'll simply refer to them as "Sweet & Creamy Nutty Hazelnut Iced Coffee K-Cups" for the remainder of this review. Most Brew Over Ice K-Cups recommend 6oz or 8oz settings but as with the 1st flavor, this one used actual real ground coffee beans, so we figured we'd use the larger 8oz setting to fill our iced beverage tumbler.
