We've been covering coffee tables going on 9 years here at Single Serve Coffee, and it's finally happened - a coffee table sci-fi show. Yes - you just read that and it's happening over at The Coffee Table.
About the show:
THE COFFEE TABLE is a new sci-fi comedy web series: fifteen short episodes with a premise that is very much Doctor Who meets The Greatest American Hero. A family discovers that their new coffee table is actually an ancient alien artifact, and they inadvertently activate it, sending their entire house hurtling through the void - with them inside it, of course. The show centers on their struggle to get home with no understanding of how the artifact actually works, while defending themselves from various aliens who ring the doorbell looking to take the coffee table off their hands."
We've watched the first episode and it's really quirky, fun, and rather entertaining. We are going to save the rest of these for the weekend while we watch them on the couch with our laptop is sitting on our coffee table. We will not however be looking inside our coffee table...

Nespresso has added Nespresso variations Vanilo, Caramelito, Ciocattino to it's permanent line of coffees available all year round. We assume Nespresso will still have seasonal coffees that are flavored, but it's nice to see Nespresso respond to it's single serve coffee drinkers requests to have flavored coffees available for purchase all the time.

If you've been drinking single serve cans of 5 hour energy over drinking a cup of single serve coffee then you could be in for a shock. A recent study had students consume either 5-Hour Energy, caffeine, or water before performing an attention task. Scientists found that the energy drink and caffeine both improved alertness better than the placebo, but there was no difference in brainwave responses between them.
And because that 5 hour energy drink has a bunch of other stuff that scientist don't know the long term affect of - they in the end recommend our good old friend coffee over using a 5 hour energy drink in it's place. The calories are the same and coffee has been under study for far longer.

The Café Valet Single Serve Coffee Brewer Starter Kit works exclusively with the Café Valet disposable brew basket and coffee filter. The starter kit includes a variety pack of 18 single serve Café Valet dark roasted 100% Arabica coffee filters and disposable trays. The brewer features an automatic shut off with no hot plate for added safety and UL commercial approved Brews directly into your favorite cup or mug.
We've seen these brewer setups at several hotel stays recently, and we have to say they're not bad. They're not for the hard core single serve coffee drinker, but for a casual coffee person these seem to fit the bill and are well reviewed.

If you've been wondering how many calories are in your average Starbucks raspberry scone (480 calories actually), then as of last week on June 25th you could stop wondering. Starbucks has made the change ahead of an expected move by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that would force chains with 20 or more locations to make similar disclosures by the end of the year.

Single serve tea has been around perhaps a bit longer than single serve coffee, and it's no surprise there's an app for it. Tea 2.0 is an iPhone app that allows you to research tea, and then save various blends you create with brew settings. You can then keep notes on the teas you've brewed, and share then with pictures on Twitter, Facebook and various other social media sites.
Seems like if they have this amazing app for tea - why don't we have one for single serve coffee?

We're brewing yet another cup this morning of the French Roast Dark Roast
We are simply loving the French Market Coffee Single Cups for Keurig K-Cup brewers. We recently received both the Dark Roast and Chicory Single Cups that will work in any Keurig K-Cup Brewers, and we have to say the French Market Dark Roast is one of our favorite single serve coffees right now. We love the richness, and it's paired with an almost blow your mind chocolate top note. Thanks again to French Market for sending us samples to review.

GMCR Naturals is a line-up of K-Cups that take 1 thing in mind: Using 100% all-natural ingredients & derivatives. Their Apple Cider was outstanding as a hot drink and over the past several months, the folks at Green Mountain decided they'd try their hand at making an iced drink which was every bit as good. So what could be easily made as an iced drink with natural ingredients? Lemonade, of course! That (plus the recent warm weather) brings us to today's long overdue review of GMCR Naturals Lemonade K-Cups.
A quick look at the ingredients list reveals that they are indeed all-natural as we find Sugar, Lemon Juice Powder, Citric Acid, Reb A (Stevia Extract), Natural Flavor, Lemon Peel Powder & Lemon Fruit Powder. While we're wondering why BOTH sugar & stevia are being used here, we suppose the added sweetness of the stevia was used as a form of natural additive to offset the sour notes of the lemon ingredients while the sugar is what provides the natural background sweetness to the final drink and probably makes up the bulk of the sweetener ingredients.
