Will Starbucks Continue to Sell and Support Verismo?

Verismo over or going

An article over at The Motley Fool has us thinking - will Starbucks continue to support Verismo as a product in 2015? Given how dominant Keurig is in the United States and Canada, and how dominant Nestle with Nespresso is world wide does it even make sense? The platform has yet to find a large audience, and it’s not clear it will. The big thing is they could use the limited shelf space for other products that simply sell better in the single serve coffee space. They could even come up with more offerings for VIA which now seems to be doing better. Whatever they decide - it’s not clear they are behind Verismo or done with the product all together. 

What do you think? Is this the year the Verismo died?

BRIM Size-Wise Programmable Coffee Station

Brew brim single cup and carafe brewer

The BRIM Size-Wise Programmable Coffee Statio can Brew three sizes with one machine because it features an adjustable tray letting you brew coffee for a single cup, travel mug, or 12-cup carafe.

  • Advanced programming makes brewing easy with a 24-hour auto-start and auto shut-off.
  • Select from three brew strengths, and prevent watered-down coffee with the innovative brew-controlling filter.
  • Set the 24-hour auto-start for freshly brewed coffee when you wake up, choose brew strength for regular, gourmet, or bold coffee, and program auto shut-off to turn off your station 30 minutes to 4 hours after brewing.
  • The Pause & serve function lets you pour a cup while coffee is still brewing in My Carafe mode, and the self-cleaning cycle ensures your coffee tastes its best.
  • Enjoy a single serving of coffee without any capsules or pods. The single cup option keeps you from having to throw away leftover coffee from the carafe when you only want one cup. And, since the filter is permanent, you don't need to purchase and dispose of paper filters.

Keurig Cold Brew Process Explained

Keurig cold vs soda stream

Over at the Winnipeg Free Press there’s an interesting snippet on how Keurig Cold will work. 

Unlike his competitor, Glorieux said Keurig Cold simplifies the process by cooling down the water as it pumps it through the machine, while it combines the syrup and carbonation that pour into the glass.

The process will be much more like a Nespresso or Tassimo that uses heat coils to instantly heat water as it's brewing. Keurig Cold will use cooling coils to instantly chill water as it's brewing. It’s like a pod-based single serve mini fridge of sorts. What’s interesting is the fact you’ll need to plug in Keurig Cold, and this makes us think Sodastream fans will likely object to doing so (even though the premium top of the line electronic Sodastream does in fact require a power source too).

Everything will become much more crystal clear (or Coke colored) this fall in 2015 when Keurig Cold finally launches.

Smart Mr. Coffee Wifi Enabled Brewer is a Really Dumb Coffee Maker

304406 coffeemakers mrcoffee smartoptimalbrewbvmcpstx91we

The very notion of a smart appliance should be appealing. Having a refrigerator tell you you’re out of milk, or to start a crock pot remotely or check in on how it’s doing. It’s a very sad day when someone makes a connected smart coffee maker that is in fact really dumb. Why? The Mr. Coffee Smart Optimal Brew can only be programmed using your smart phone, and if your smart phone happens to be in another room then you can’t adjust or change the coffee maker settings. There is a brew button for manual operation when brewing without the WeMo App and smart phone, but the connectivity costs a $50 more than the same coffee maker with regular controls right on the brewer.

We’re not sure who thought this was a worthy trade off, but we won’t be surprised how bad the press and user experience this coffee maker will have. For $150 bucks, we think we’ll order another Chemex and Aeropress that will remain offline and fine for years to come.
