Mighty Mug - The Mug That Won't Fall Over

3c6fb6f2eec7ca458cd8615da86861b6 large

The Mighty Mug is just the travel mug you’ve been looking for if you’ve ever encountered the dreaded coffee mug spill. The Mighty Mug is the world's only mug powered by patented Smartgrip Technology. The base of the mug has a an airlock that when pushed from the side doesn’t release. If you lift Mighty Mug up the Smartgrip will release.

That’s what makes Mighty Mug so different.  Mighty Mug grips to your desk when knocked into, but lifts naturally like any other mug. There are no buttons to push or levers to pull to get Mighty Mug to work. Mighty Mug is not a suction cup nor is it a magnet, but rather something entirely new.

Mighty Mug has successfully been funded on Kickstarter so look for them this October and November at stores and online.

Keurig 2.0 Likes, Dislikes, Nitpicks, Hidden Port & Conclusion

Keurig 20 final

We reach the end of a long journey today with Part 3 of our 3-part Keurig 2.0 Mega Review where we discuss our main likes, dislikes & nitpicks about the new 2.0 brewers, our discovery of a hidden port under the machine (do we have your attention now?) & our final conclusion about the new 2.0 brewer series. 

What did we like?

- Overall design/look of the new brewers. They seem to have a nicer, more modern look which appears to be a fusion of various design cues from the old Keurig 1.0 Series B70 brewers & the Keurig (1.5 Series?) Vue V700 brewers. 

- The designing ingenuity which went into creating the retractable K-Cup piercing needle mechanism. As we noted in Part 2 of our Mega Review, this level of design is something we’d be expecting to see come out of Apple’s Cupertino offices… not Keurig Green Mountain. The fact that Legos inspired it further shows that amazing things can come from the most simple of ideas.

Mixpresso - Nespresso Compatible Coffee Capsules and Machines

LUCE Angeled

If you’re looking for a Nespresso capsule alternative you may want to check out Mixpresso. Made in Italy, Mixpresso offers 4 different espresso capsule options and they also have their own single serve espresso machines:

  • Ricco, made from 100% full drums Robusta. A powerful & contrasting rich flavor that's a perfectly smooth experience on the tongue. A cup of this full-bodied roaster is simply perfect to suit the expectations of true lovers of quality traditional Italian Espresso. 
  • Luce- best defined as an angelic light and easy speciality decaf. It's our classic lively yet gentle flavor on the menu. Luce offers a snappy crisp and citrus body from the Central American coffee bean matched with a complete depth and sweetness of an Ethiopian classic.
  • Classe is Mixpresso's Superior Blend. A Perfect harmony of aromatic coffee from the Arabica species, similar to that of the Lungo but blended with an excellent natural, rustic coffee from the Robusta species. A creamy, full bodied and easy to work coffee blend with a complex yet persistent taste.
  • Lungo, is the line for coffee purists, obtained by five selected components of 100% Arabica species of coffee from Central & South America  and East Africa. Its intense toasted aroma is accompanied by a combination of slightly fruity flavors in which you can percieve gentle notes of Myrtle. 
Mixpresso machines

They have 3 different machines with the main difference being color. There’s Logan, Isabelle, and Steve. We’re pretty sure these machines are Nespresso capsule compatible as well.

Keurig 2.0 Menus, Brewing Various Packs & New Exclusive 2.0 Features

 

K450 Carafe

We continue today with Part 2 of our 3-part Keurig 2.0 Mega Review (you can read Part I here) by checking out the new menu system, discussing how to brew various packs in the new brewers and we also cover new features which you’ll only find on the new 2.0 brewers. One thing we’d like to tackle before we get started (and something we forgot to mention in Part 1) is how you can determine whether or not K-Cups & Vue Packs are 2.0 compatible before you even open the box. 

KCup2 Compatible Logo

We’re all familiar with the old Keurig Brewed logo and while most people will think this automatically means they’re getting 2.0 K-Cups or Vue Packs… this is NOT the case. Instead, you now need to look for even NEWER logos on the packaging. The new K-Cup compatibility logo is a colored rectangle with a circled checkmark on top which contains the words “For use in all Keurig K-Cup brewers”. While we’re not entirely 100% certain if boxes featuring this new logo might still contain older 1.0 K-Cups (since the use of the word all can be considered somewhat vague), we can however confirm that all the new boxes with this logo in our latest online orders & in-store purchases DID contain the newer 2.0 K-Cups which feature the Keurig Brewed grey/white ring around the lid.

What K-Cups and Vue Packs Work in Keurig 2.0?

Keurig 20 What Packs Work

We’ve gotten a bunch of write ins regarding Keurig 2.0, and what K-Cups and packs work with the new brewer. Due to DRM that the brewer uses to tell non-licensed K-Cups not to brew you may have seen the OOPS warning on your Keurig 2.0. Many of your current K-Cups and older VUE Packs will not work with the Keurig 2.0.

Keurig has also noted that many K-Cups have had the Keurig brewed circle on them since earlier in the year but VUE packs are current transitioning so many if not all current VUE packs will not work. According to Keurig Vue packs are currently compatible only with Vue Brewers. Over the next few months, all Vue packs will be transitioned to also be compatible with the Keurig 2.0 Brewing System. You’ll need to check back regularly, and Keurig will let you know when Vue packs can be used in your Keurig 2.0 Brewer on their site.

So this is what we know will and won’t work in Keurig 2.0:

  • Doesn’t Work: Non-Keurig Pack with No Outside Brewed By Keurig circle or ring
  • Doesn’t Work: VUE Pack with no colored circle on it. Most Vue packs won’t work at all.
  • Doesn’t Work: Older K-Cup licensed pack with no Outside Brewed by Keurig circle or ring
  • Works: K-Cup pack with outside ring
  • Works: K-Carafe pack with colored dot

Let us know if you have any questions or find other K-Cup situations that don’t work with Keurig 2.0.
