Hockey Stick Coffee Tables

hockey stick coffee table

Oh hockey stick coffee table - we love you. We love that you’re made of broken sticks from one of our favorite punishing games. When can we have you to complete our living room, and share a night of NHL with you?

Seriously - we have no idea where to find the glass top hockey stick coffee table above, but we did find a cool site that shows you how to make your own Hockey Stick Builds which can result in a coffee table. There’s also lots of people on the internets that will make one for you for around $375 - $500. Pick your poison - we’ve got some hockey to watch.

Chulux coffee maker

The CHULUX Single Serve Coffee Maker is a small yet simple single cup brewer that works with single cups, K-Cups, and other similar filters. There is no option on cup volume because whatever water you put in the reservoir is the amount that will be in your cup.

The CHULUX features a one-touch start and automatically turn offs after finishing the brewing to save energy. It also has a removable drip tray for larger cups or travel mugs. The reservoir is 15oz maximum.

German City Bans Nespresso Capsules and Coffee Pods

Pod coffee jpg 662x0 q70 crop scale

The German city of Hamburg last month introduced a ban on buying 'certain polluting products or product components’. The ban includes specific terms for 'equipment for hot drinks in which portion packaging is used' - specifically singling out the 'Kaffeekapselmaschine', or coffee capsule machine, which accounts for one in eight coffees sold in Germany.

Nespresso has 14,000 pod pickup locations in 31 countries, capable of processing 80 percent of all the capsules they make, but they don't say how many they actually collect.

The point with coffee pods isn't about recycling - it's about cutting down on the amount of stuff that we need to throw away or recycle."

Italy’s Coffee Pot King Buried in Moka Pot

If you invent a coffee pot that roughly sells 330 million copies, then you will be buried in it. That’s just how it works. Renato Bialetti, the Italian businessman who turned an aluminum coffee pot into a classic global design, died last week at the age of 93. A man named Luigi di Ponti designed the appliance in 1933 and sold the patent to Renato’s father Alfonso Bialetti, an aluminum vendor.

Bialetti’s Moka-shaped urn now lies in the family plot in Omegna, Italy.

Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter

71cpiUs15OL SL1500

The Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter is our current pour over single serve coffee maker. We got it as a gift recently, and have also been using a #4 filter with it to produce a richer cup of coffee. The set includes a permanent stainless steel mesh filer, but as stated we often combine it with a paper filter. If you choose to use the permanent filter only, you can save a few bucks on not getting paper ones.

The carafe is made of mouth-blown borosilicate glass, and is dishwasher safe. We love the silicone wrapper in the middle to grab and pour your cup of coffee. Overall we’re pretty happy with the Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter and it’s priced right at $30.

Keurig Sales Continue To Fall

Keurig 250 brewer

Over at NPR and other sites we’re finding stories of Keurig’s sales continuing to fall. Sales are in the decline at Keurig with bookings down some $60 million from last year. Besides K-Cups not being kind to the environment, there’s also been a general dislike of Keurig 2.0 and Keurig KOLD sales are supposedly not great either. 

What do you think are Keurig’s troubles? Remember when K-Cups were supposed to take over the world? We did and still think they might if Keurig can make some changes.

SCAA Unveils a New Coffee Taster’s Flavor Wheel

Scaa flavor wheel coffee

It’s been a great 21 years with the current coffee taster flavor wheel, but that great time has come to an end. Considered both an art piece and sensory analysis tool, the coffee taster flavor wheel has been updated and it’s even bigger and hopefully better than before.

“This is the largest and most collaborative piece of research on coffee flavor ever completed, inspiring a new set of vocabulary for industry professionals,” SCAA Chronicle Executive Editor Lily Kubota wrote in a piece published today. “This groundbreaking new tool will shift the way our industry thinks about and utilizes coffee flavor.”

You can read an in depth article on creating the new flavor wheel here.
