TV Show Single Cups - When Fiction Meets Reality

Celebrity kcups

When we first got into the world of single serve coffee over 10 years ago, we knew that as time progressed, we’d eventually start seeing more and more brands of coffee become available for various single serve coffee brewers such as the Keurig & Tassimo platforms. It would seem that when Keurig’s copyright patents expired a few years ago, the floodgates opened and along came a surge of unlicensed knock-offs and competing 3rd-party products.

We knew Kraft had locked-up their T-Disc patents and that the Tassimo would be shielded from knock-off T-Discs but never did we think we’d see Kraft making K-Cup knock-offs. That was the first major shockwave to spread across the unlicensed K-Cup universe and was the first snowflake to fall in K-Cup hell. Over the months that followed, we saw a tidal wave of products which were outstanding to the point of rivalling licensed K-Cup quality while inevitably, we also saw products that performed and tasted like total junk (a quick look through our review archives will clearly point them out).

ISS Lavazza Custom Space Espresso Machine

Qwbvgsfcewhtnksd4r8b

Currently in space there's no one to hear your order of a two shot extra whip latte, but soon there will be. Lavazza has created the a new custom espresso machine for use in space. The ISSpresso is headed for the ISS space station in orbit, and weighs in at just 44lbs.

Making espresso in space is pretty much the same as on Earth. The pressure required is between 8 and 10 bars which inside an already pressurized space station might freak an astronaut out. That's why Lavazza has replaced the plastic tubing with a steel version capable of withstanding 400 bars of pressure. Rather than spewing hot coffee into microgravity, the machine pumps the espresso out into small plastic pouches.

How does it taste? The flavor profile is dulled because it's impossible to smell the coffee that's being imbibed, and that's better than Tang any day in the cold darkness of space.

More pictures after the jump.

Keurig's 2.0 K-Cup Copy Protection Easy to Crack?

Keurig 2.0

Over at Engadget TreeHouse Foods is estimating it will only take a couple of months to crack the DRM protection making brewing non-licensed K-Cups in the Keurig 2.0 impossible. The upcoming Keurig 2.0 will have cameras that read tags and limit what you brew to official brews only.The discovery should keep TreeHouse selling and others selling unofficial pods that cost less than Keurig’s, and it could lead to making other brewers copy protection useless as well.

Our analysis indicates that under any circumstance that it will be a matter of months, not years, before we replicate the technology for the cups or the pods. And we expect that of the five new single-serve coffee brand-name appliances that are coming to the market in the fourth quarter, at least some of those will replicate the technology as well.

Quartz also has some more details regarding the lawsuit from TreeHouse Foods, and their take on cracking the DRM.

Flatev - K-Cup Like Single Serve Tortillas

3c47744f 18db 4032 b4bf 02f78aa4698c 625x418

More single serve like products are coming out every day, and Flatev— short for ‘flatbread evolution’ has created a K-Cup-like pod that will make a flatbread tortilla in minutes. Tortillas are very popular throughout the world, and making them is time consuming. It’s no wonder someone came up with a method to make them easier and with a single serve machine.

699a7c9f 01a3 4da1 ae35 6cc521ee3714

Flatev operates much in the same way that a Keurig or Nespresso any single serve coffee maker does. You grab a Flatev tortilla pod, and then press a button and in less than a minute or so you have a fresh tortilla from the Flatev machine. Flatev pods currently have dough for flour and corn tortillas, and the ingredients for the flour tortillas consist of flour, water, baking soda, and salt; the corn tortillas are comprised solely of corn flour and water. The pods must be refrigerated at all times and can last up to two weeks.

Expect Flatev machines to be available for purchase in 2015.

Hey Joe Coffee Mug - One Touch Portable Brewing

Hey Joe Coffee Mug

The Hey Joe Coffee Mug allows you to  brew coffee inside of your mug to the perfect drinking temperature anytime, anywhere, at the push of a button. Currently this is a Kickstarter project, and the funding of $20k is almost complete. You can pre-order one of the Hey Joe Coffee Mugs for just $49 instead of the $69 once funding is complete. 

The Hey Joe coffee mug is a travel sized coffee mug that acts just like any other coffee mug, except it can brew coffee inside of your thermos and regulate the temperature automatically. Whether you're a working professional or a student, there is nothing worse than taking a sip from your travel thermos, only to find the coffee is lukewarm or cold. Usually this is a huge problem but not with Hey Joe - just push the button on the Hey Joe Coffee mug and it will warm your coffee up in a matter of minutes.

So with this travel mug the possibilities are endless. Because you don’t have to plug it in that makes for hot coffee wherever you want to take it. We love our portable coffee options, and making coffee on the go is one of the best perks of single serve coffee you can get.
