We've often thought Batman's logo would make a pretty nice coffee table, and the Bohemian workshop has proven us right. Made by Charles Lushear of the Bohemian Workshop, the coffee table is carved from wood with hairpin legs. The bad news? You can't actually buy the Bat signal coffee table. DC Comics found out about Lushear's wood work and only allows him to display it on his website.
Single Serve Espresso has word that Nespresso will be launching limited edition Napoli and Trieste coffee capsules sometime in this middle of this April 2013.
The Napoli capsules is a blend of South American, African and Asian beans that have a dark, complex and STRONG flavor with a bit of a Robusta finish. The capsule sis said to be an 11 on a 10 scale, much like the fabled Kazaar all Robusta blended capsule. With the Napoli, Nespresso is pushing a 'Black Gold' concentrated coffee concept of taking the espresso as a Ristretto, (25ml) or an even shorter 15ml. We'll have to see.
The Trieste is a bit less intense, but not by much. The Trieste capsules will be 100% Brazilian and African Arabica beans with a nutty and chocolatey flavor coming in at a 9 on the 10 intensity scale.
There's a launch site of course and it's really well designed.
Starbucks had discontinued their ESE espresso pods to help alleviate all the confusion customers were having between their Verismo coffee pods and the ESE ones. It's kind of obvious to us here at Single Serve Coffee which one was for an ESE machine and which one might work in your Verismo but we understand Starbuck's side. We haven't seen a box of ESE pods in store in a few weeks so if they're out there - you might want to get your last box.
You can read our article from 2005 about these wonders of the Single Serve World which lasted 8 years on the market. Even back then there was confusion on what type of coffee pod brewer these would work in. A special thanks to Mike for sending this tip in.
The Melitta E-Filter Reusable Coffee Filters for K-Cup brewers allow you to use any kind of ground coffee you want. The Melitta E-Filter Reusable Coffee Filters package contains 5 reusable filters each designed to last up to 20 uses per filter. Each E-Filter is also recyclable unlike outer reusable filters.
Well JCPenney can't even catch a coffee break from Caribou Coffee. Caribou had announced a potential partnership about six months ago, but now it's not so interested in being in the in store coffee brand for JCPenney. We thought the cafe idea and in store coffee would have made a nice splash for JCPenney customers. Perhaps they can attract another brand?
Once Marley Coffee decided to release a rare single-origin coffee with their Jamaican Blue Mountain Real Cups, Green Mountain realized they had missed their chance at being the first company/brand to release a rare single-origin coffee in Keurig K-Cup compatible format. It didn't take them long to fix that oversight as they decided to start releasing their Special Reserve series in K-Cup format soon afterwards. The first flavor in the series is what we're reviewing today... GMCR Special Reserve Colombia Geisha K-Cups.
Hailing from the Cerro Azul region in Valle del Cauca, Colombia Geisha coffee is considered to be amongst the rarest varietals in the World due to it being difficult to grow which makes it produced in specially crafted small batches. It is renowned for its complex flavors which have been described as changing with every sip and it's such a highly-regarded crop that pickers must endure 4 to 12 months of training just to be certified to pick Geisha cherries as such requires a fine touch to preserve all the flavor's subtle notes during the cultivation process. This varietal is also considered to be one of the most sought-after coffees as was evidenced last year by Starbucks when they decided to start selling it in limited runs at an astronomical price of $7 per cup. Thankfully, if you calculate the price per serving of these K-Cups, it works out to a much more reasonable $1.77 instead.
Melitta has entered the compatible K-Cup market with their Melitta 100% Colombian Single Serve Coffee Cups . This coffee is from the mountains and is smooth and rich with a hint of sun. Melitta coffee cups have been developed for best results when brewing an 8 oz (250ml) cup of coffee.
Will work with most K-Cup Brewers using Keurig Incorporated Brewing Systems. Melitta coffee cups are not affiliated with nor approved by Keurig Incorporated.
A special thanks to Green Mountain Coffee for providing us samples of Tully's Hawaiian Blend K-Cups and Donut Shop Blend K-Cups. We want to acknowledge our continued involvement in their K-Cup Ambassadors program. Note: We only recommend products or services we use personally, and believe will be good for our readers.
