625x465 263452 129545 1378345246

If you’re looking for a unique and interesting coffee mug you might want to check out this site with tons of 3D Printed coffee mugs. We especially like the more alien looking coffee cups, and can see ourselves probably buying too many of these to fit into our cabinets.

All of the mugs are made of bright white ceramic with a glossy, smooth finish. The mugs are of course food-safe, and you can get them in black and white ceramic.

Nestlé Coffee-mate 2 in 1 K-Cups - Coffee and Creamer in a K-Cup

Coffee mate logo

Keurig Green Mountain, Inc., and Nestlé USA have announced a multiyear agreement to bring NESTLÉ COFFEE-MATE branded coffee with creamer to K-Cup packs for the Keurig brewing system. Nestle Coffee-mate is the first brand to offer a 2 in 1 K-Cup pack for hot coffee - combining roast and ground coffee with branded creamer in a K-Cup.

The companies plan to launch the new Nestlé Coffee-mate 2 in 1 K-Cup packs in Original and French Vanilla flavors on Keurig.com in fall 2014 and in stores in spring 2015. A reinvention of the coffee routine, Nestlé Coffee-mate 2 in 1 K-Cup packs contain a special combination of coffee and creamer for an even more convenient way to create a rich, creamy, delicious cup of coffee. The Nestlé Coffee-mate 2 in 1 K-Cup packs will be available to grocery, mass and specialty retail channels throughout the United States, as well as at Keurig.com.

"Coffee-mate's partnership with Keurig is a natural fit since one-fourth of all Keurig users cream their coffee with Coffee-mate¹," said Rob Case, President of the Nestlé Beverage Division, Nestlé USA. "We're always looking at new, innovative ways to deliver convenience and enjoyment - by combining signature Coffee-mate creamer and roast & ground coffee into one single serve K-Cup pack, Keurig consumers can have their perfect cup at the touch of a button."

This is big news given Nestle owns Nespresso, but Nestle Coffee-Mate is a different kind of coffee experience. We can safely say we didn’t see this one coming, and it’s the first K-Cup of it’s kind to offer a 2-1 solution. We’ll let you know when we get some to try.

Solid cedar construction ensures years of maintenance free use, and the coffee table can be painted, stained or left to wether to a natural silver grey. Ours is a natural silver grey now, and we love it.

Cars Running on Single Serve Coffee Biodiesal Could Happen

Coffee Car

Throwing away all of those single serve coffee grounds might not be the thing to do in a gasified coffee future where biodiesal for cars is mixed with coffee grounds. The idea of creating biodiesel from coffee grounds goes back several years, and the process works by soaking the grounds in an organic solvent and then putting them through a process called transesterification.

Coffee ground-based biofuel could be revolutionary. By just using the coffee grounds in neighborhood coffee shops, you could get 22 pounds (10kg) of grounds a day could make about half a gallon of biofuel (2 liters). While that's a relatively small amount, it's from a source that would otherwise usually just be thrown away. Also, imagine just collecting all the used single serve coffee pods (Green Mountain is doing this today with several programs), and not just composting but using it to make fuel. You can read the abstract here.

Starbucks Adding Single Serve Soda to Its Mix

Single serve soda starbucks

Starbucks is adding single serve soda to it's cold beverage menu in over 3000 US stores. Starbucks will begin to sell three sodas this week--Spiced Root Beer, Golden Ginger Ale and Lemon Ale--in 16 states mostly located in the South and Southwest to start. The sodas are made by the retailer's baristas using a machine called Fizzio, which carbonates the sodas but can also add carbonation to ice teas and other drinks. It takes just a few minutes to make a single serve soda using the Fizzio.

Cold beverages are big business, and they can boost in store sales throughout the day. Starbucks sells more than 1/3 of the coffee by the cup in the United States and adding lucrative single serve soda sales won't hurt. Starbucks customers have been asking for soda for quite some time, and with Fizzio now able to make single serve soda drinks Starbucks customers will be answered.

Starbucks began testing various flavors across about 100 stores in Atlanta and Austin about a year ago. The sodas contain no artificial flavors, as well as no preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. You're also going to pay around $3 for a grande sized beverage. Also the ingredients of the sodas are all natural - cinnamon, ginger, lemon juice and brown sugar are a few of the ingredients.

And the calories are also less - a 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola has 140 calories, and a 16-ounce serving of Starbucks' sodas has 100 calories or less.

We can imagine the success of the Fizzio in Starbucks cafes may lead to in a consumer version of the Fizzio machine. With Keurig Cold coming with single serve sodas from Coca Cola, Starbucks is poised to be ahead of Green Mountain in the soda market.

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).
