The 120 milliliter Senseo Milk Twister from Philips prepares foamy milk for 2 cappuccinos or latte macchiatos in just under 2 minutes. With one button operation and non stick coating that leaves no milk residue, the Senseo Milk Twister is simple to operate and clean.
You can make hot or cold milk froth, or to heat up milk without frothing it. The milk is heated up to just under 70°C to ensure it retains its natural sweetness. The Philips Senseo Milk Twister sells for around € 80, but sadly isn't available in the US. It's also made to be used with the Senseo Twist - also not available in the US.
AB from Maine came across the Distinctively Yours K-cups in Walmart yesterday. The only type they are currently carrying is Colombian. The box contains 44 K-Cups for $19.98. Like so many of the cheaper K-Cup offerings hitting the market, we have never heard of this brand nor could I locate a website. Distinctively Yours K-Cups should work in most K-Cup Brewers.
Fiber is heart healthy and also good to keep things moving in your daily life. These Salada Fiber Boost Green Tea K-Cups start with premium green tea and with blended in natural lemon flavor for a great taste and natural fiber to help give your body the added boost that it needs.
When we first started reviewing Vue Packs and noticed how the strong button could affect (both positively and negatively) the flavor of a coffee, the first flavor we wish GMCR would have released was Island Coconut. Out of all the seasonal flavors, it's our #1 favorite and when we first tasted it, we immediately wanted MORE coconuttiness (is that even a word?) in our cup. The intoxicating tropical coconut aromas paired with the intense coconut flavor had us... well... going nuts. We just couldn't help but wonder how the strong button would affect such a superb coffee. Would it blow the dial past 11 in coconut flavor or would it turn things so bitter & sour that we'd be rushing to rebuild the S.S. Minnow and get the heck off Gilligan's Island?
We called it during our GMCR Caramel Vanilla Cream Vue Pack review as we suspected back then that this flavor wouldn't be too far behind on the Vue Pack line-up's release schedule, so let's see if these new seasonal Vue Packs can recreate the same euphoric sensation as their K-Cup counterparts and possibly improve upon it. Today we check out the long awaited & highly anticipated Green Mountain Island Coconut Vue Packs.
We've received several sets of photos from various readers regarding Peet's K-Cup prototypes. We're not sure if these are Green Mountain approved (we doubt it because we don't see a Keurig seal in any of the photos), but given they are calling them - Peet's Single Cups - we don't think so. We have noticed that on Peet's twitter feed that several people have written in regarding the prototype Peet's Single Cups. They seem to like them.
Roasts included in the prototype box of Peet's Single Cups:
Major Dickason's Blend
Decaf House Blend
Update: Peet's Single Cups will be available through Peet's retail stores and Home Delivery starting May 1st.
Sure we are a single serve coffee site, but we also have to give props to awesome ground multi-cup coffee brewers when their in hot pink. We really love the Cuisinart DCC-1200MP Brew Central 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with it's brilliant metallic pink finish and classic design that comes with a 12-cup carafe with ergonomic handle. The dripless spout and knuckle guard will also make getting a cup of coffee a breeze.
24-hour programmability with programmable automatic shutoff 0 to 4 hours and 1- to 4-cup feature
Brew pause feature lets you enjoy a cup of coffee before brewing has finished
Charcoal water filter and permanent gold tone filter, measuring scoop and instruction book
The Wall Street Journal gives us their take on the success of the K-Cup. With Americans now getting more than 25% of their coffee from K-Cups, it's no wonder Green Mountain Coffee and their associated roasters also continue to grow and dominate the ground coffee market.
But there is a cost - an environmental one. Green Mountain hoped to change this with the VUE system, and it's recyclable VUE cups. It seems now like it may never happen given all the after market K-Cup knock offs adding to the problem of more Americans drinking K-Cup knockoffs along with the real deal.
Total K-Cup brewers are in the 12.5 million range with Green Mountain expecting to make that number 16-17 million K-Cup brewers by the end of 2013. More brewers = more K-Cups sold and that means more coffee market share and more environmental impact. We'd really like to see some solution to the K-Cup in the land fill problem, but with the after market doing their own thing along with no real solution from Green Mountain - we believe we're on a one way streak to throwaway-ville.
We've finally found a coffee mug that has a place for the thing we never know where to put down - our spoon. If you're like us having to find a sanitary place at a coffee shop that doesn't involve using wasted napkin for your spoon is tough. The NOTA mug features a set of built-in supports preventing a spoon from sliding around. We love the simple design, and though the mug is not available yet we hope they will make some in the near future.
Over at Kickstarter Shaun Pitz is working very hard to show the battle line between coffee and espresso in a new short film.
"Espresso Manifesto is a seven minute animated film that reconsiders the origin of coffee through a colorful world of fantasy and science fiction. A mysterious cafe set beside an ocean of grass, a silent observer, metallic serpents, rolling robots, and one lingering question: Why is coffee just so delicious? The answer may be more sinister than you think. "
Shaun works in a coffee shop by day and has been animating and creating the film at night. We're thinking given the trailer a bit Shaun has been a bit hopped up on espresso and coffee the entire time.
