We continue our review series of T-Discs today with the King of Joe Cappuccino T-Discs. Now, keep in mind that we’ve already reviewed the King of Joe Espresso T-Discs which are what’s being used here, so all the key points noted below are for the COMBINED aroma, acidity, flavor, etc. of BOTH the espresso and milk T-Discs, not just the espresso T-Discs.
Brewing these T-Discs resulted in smoky notes which were somewhat subdued by the milk creamer’s almost buttery aroma. Things were a lot more toned down compared to the espresso T-Disc alone as we weren’t getting all the original notes as before. Flavor had the same smoky notes with strong oils present, but they were again less prevalent this time around due to the addition of the milk creamer.
We've never seen a battery powered espresso maker before, and this one from Trisa is going to be the first and best we've ever seen. Available in black, red, white and anthracite, the Coffee To Go is portable battery operated espresso machin and it can deliver 16 espressos per battery charge, using standard ESE coffee pods. We're not sure about the price at $545 bucks, but we do know you have to pay for high quality battery powered espresso. :-)
350 ml removable water tank with water filter
Removable drip tray for easy cleaning and travel case with belt
Shuts off automatically after 7 minutes of doing nothing
If the water level is too low, an acoustic noise sounds and the machine cannot be switched on.
The Nestle Star Wars Coffee Machines come in Darth Vader with the 'Dark Set' and 'Light Set' which features C3PO. The availability is very limited and only in Japan for $120 a piece (more if you buy the set below). Why don't we have more themed coffee makers here in the US? We'd take a HALO themed coffee maker over a HALO themed Xbox 360 any day. Well - maybe not.
Each set comes with a mug, lightsaber stirrer, and of course the machine.
Single Serve Coffee reader Alan has written in with news of the TASSIMO T47 Single Cup Home Brewing System. The Tassimo T47 appears to be a Target exclusive in the US, and costs $139.99. It does feature the LCD display and uses Tassimo's barcode technology to brew a perfect single serve hot beverage every time.
Removable cup stand fits most cups, (travel) mugs and glasses.
Capacity (volume): 47.0 Oz.
Custom Brew Strength
Removable Drip Tray

We'd love to hear your thoughts and impressions for those of you that own a T47 or might get one for the holidays. So far we've been unable to find anything on the Tassimo web site or our old standby of YouTube.
Update:From Alan, "I saw that part too and I would have to say that it's a misprint in their description. I haven't actually seen it operate but I did play with the floor model a bit at the Target by my work. The display looks a lot like the one used in the T20." We thought the LCD looked like it was missing and that's the case.
Rogers Family Coffee has got a ton of new coffee flavors in their OneCup single serve coffee lines. They've introduced an organic set of coffees, along with a set of new flavored coffee and a Donut Shop and Espresso roast. Rogers Family Coffee was kind enough to send along samples of the organic line along with the San Francisco Bay brand additions and we have to tip our hats to how good these coffees are. We're sipping on the Breakfast Blend in the Organic coffee brand line and it's very very good.

Thanks again to Rogers Family Coffee for sending us these new coffees to try. The OneCup single serve coffee pods will work in any Keurig K-Cup brewer.
Though non-functional the iPhone Coffee table has a sticker surface and plenty of storage underneath. This is a great coffee table to put in your tech lounge at your techie office or perhaps you could make one yourself and live your life in a completely iPhone dominated world. Whatever you decide this one is not for sale, but does inspire.
Sometimes you just need a little break in your day or perhaps in your single serve coffee mug to get things back on track. We love the this coffee mug because of the subtle yet direct action it implies. We could see ourselves holding it up at the office threatening to break open the seal and spew hot coffee everywhere...wait a minute. Okay - what we can really see is just sitting back and enjoying a cup of coffee more often with our Take a Break Emergency Coffee Mug.
Looking like an alien spaceship more than a coffee maker, the Jules Espresso Coffee Maker will also set you back more than a ticket to Mars at 1,300 CHF ($1388 USD). It's made with a round, polished stainless steel shell, and supported by stainless steel legs.

We continue our iced tea review series today with the new Tassimo Tea Bar Raspberry Iced Tea T-Discs. As we previously noted in another review, Tassimo Tea Bar is an in-house brand created by Kraft for the Tassimo. Our main problem with the Peach Iced Tea T-Discs was the sucralose taste. Let's see how it factors in this review.
Brewing these T-Discs resulted in strong aromas of sweet ripe raspberries quickly filling the room and like the peach iced tea flavor, you could also smell some of the black tea aromas in the background. Looking good so far. Flavor this time around was MUCH more palatable than the peach T-Discs. While the ingredients list on the packaging clearly shows sucralose is present, you don't get slammed in the face with it. It's actually barely noticeable. Instead, you get the sweet taste of raspberries bursting forth upon each sip. You can tell there's sucralose lurking around somewhere in the background, but the black tea tannins kick in before it becomes too noticeable. A superb job this time & much more enjoyable overall.
