RealCup brand and Numi Organic Tea are teaming up to bring convenience and quality to teacups everywhere with the introduction of single-serve capsules to the Numi line of organic teas.
Numi is a family owned and operated business that was founded in 1999 by siblings Ahmed and Reem Rahim, and is one the fastest growing tea companies in the United States. Numi chose RealCup due to the shared company values of innovation and quality.
Developed by Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee, RealCup single-serve capsules feature a FlavorMax filter that is designed to allow more of the essential oils into the cup, ensuring a more flavorful experience.
It's nice to see another premium Tea come to the single cup platform that Mother Parkers is building. We look forward to getting a sample set to review.

Remington iCup will be the first single-serve coffee brewing system to use rotational SteamBrew technology. iCup is a breakthrough technology for the single-serve brewer industry, providing a superior tasting cup of coffee as compared with your favorite Keurig K-Cup or K-type equivalent.
iCup uses iCoffee's patented rotational SteamBrew technology to steam and stir the coffee grounds in all Keurig and K-type compatible cups. This rotational brewing technology creates a brewing environment that extracts rich, smooth flavors without the bitter-acidic aftertaste often associated with drip and single-serve coffee brewers. We’ve never used the iCoffee drip brewer but we have read many reviews saying how amazing it is.
The iCup will accept all K-Cups - including the new Keurig 2.0 cups. How does the iCup work? The iCup uses a patent-pending rotational jet inside the K-Cup that steams and stirs the coffee at the optimum brewing temperature to release maximum flavor.

Nespresso has two new limited edition coffees this year instead of just one. Both of the limited edition 2014 Nespresso coffees are from different growing regions or 'terroirs' in Colombia. Cauca (intensity 6) and Santander (intensity 7) are available now for ordering and will work in all Nespresso espresso machines.
- Cauca is a coffee with fruity-winey and ripe fruit notes, complex and aromatic, juicy with fine acidity.
- Santander is a coffee with hints of toasted bread and caramel notes, balanced and round.
We're thinking Santander is more in tune with our coffee palette, but for those of you who like a rich intense juicy cup of coffee than Cauca is for you.

Keurig Green Mountain and Peet's Coffee & Tea Announce have announced a multi-year manufacturing and distribution agreement for Peet's-branded packs for the Keurig brewing system. The companies plan to launch a selection of Keurig licensed Peet's coffee and tea varieties in K-Cup packs for Keurig K-Cup brewers produced by Keurig by the end of the summer. Peet's will continue to hand roast the beans for its Peet's K-Cup packs at its LEED-Gold certified roasting facility in Alameda, Calif. and the roasted beans will be transported to Keurig for grinding and packaging in K-Cup packs.
Peet's entered the single-cup format just seven months ago and is now available in over 12,000 stores nationwide. Given their success with the K-Cup format, it’s interesting they decided to go Keurig brewed, but if they didn’t their K-Cup packs wouldn’t work with the Keurig 2.0 brewers coming out later this Fall.
This is one partnership we didn’t see coming, and right on the heels of Starbucks changing it’s agreement with Green Mountain from the only, “Premium Exclusive Brand on the Keurig platform.” It also makes us think who’s left? Is there any premium brand that’s not on the Keurig platform for 2014?
