There’s an interesting article over at Yahoo! that features various tips and tricks on making a perfect cup of single serve coffee from your Keurig coffee maker. One of the tricks to mellow out the coffee is to add a pinch of salt to you cup of coffee. This trick had us thinking about all the other ways you can make a cup of coffee better using a single serve coffee maker. Here’s their ten tricks and click here to get the details.

  1. Double up your cup - use two K-cups on the lowest setting
  2. Add a pinch of salt - yep - this will mellow out the acid in the coffee
  3. Use your own beans - use a My K-Cup reusable filter or Eco-Fill
  4. Hack the K-Cup - reuse the guts of a K-Cup to make double strength coffee 
  5. Let freedom ring - get  freedom clip and use any K-Cup you want in a 2.0 coffee maker
  6. Keep it clean - use vinegar to get the Keurig brewer brewing better
  7. Heat things up - run a cycle before you make a cup 
  8. Always pull out - don’t let it brew to the end and put in some watery coffee
  9. Go bold or go home - use only the Dark roast K-Cups to get stronger coffee
  10. Save your money, skip the tea - use tea bags instead of K-Cup tea - always better

Handpresso Outdoor Set - Portable Espresso for Picnics and Cycling

Handpresso outdoor set

Handpresso Outdoor Set is perfect for those of us who want a little espresso or perhaps an americano on our picnics and hikes or even a long bike ride. The set features the Wild Hybrid which is small enough to fit in your cycling jersey if that’s where you need to store it, or in the convenient travel set to ensure you have all he right supplies.

The Handpresso Wild Hybrid works with either loose espresso grounds or pre-loaded E. S. E. pods. The Wild pumps up like a bike pump, and can generate an impressive 232 PSI, well beyond the usual 116 to 145 PSI necessary for making espresso. Its water reservoir is 50 milliliters. To enjoy the fruits of your labor, Handpresso rounds the outdoor set off with four demitasse cups (which Handpresso claims are unbreakable), a small napkin, and a carrying case.

Keurig Kold Will Use Carbonation Beads in Soda Pods - Machine Costs $300

Keurig kold

According to an article over at the Boston Glove, the Keurig Cold machines will cost around $300 or more and will be rolled out slowly over the next year and a half. The Keurig Kold counter-top machine will sell for between $299 and $369, which makes it much more than a Keurig 2.0 coffee brewer. The Keurig Kold pods will retail for $.99 to $1.29 each, which makes them also much more expensive than K-Cups and other current hot offerings or iced coffee offerings. 

The machine has its own chilling mechanism, and can make six to eight drinks in a row before it needs to recharge. The Kold technology includes ‘carbonation beads’ in the pods that eliminate the need for bulky carbon dioxide canisters. Apparently the Keurig Kold carbonation beads took over 5 years to develop.

Keurig Kold Delayed - Online Ordering Fall 2015 and Retail 2016

Keurig kold brewer

Keurig Kold is coming just don’t expect it at the same places you see Keurig brewers in stores this year. The Keurig Kold will be sold online only this Fall, and next year the Keurig Kold the single-serve brewer for cold beverages like iced coffee, sodas, sports drinks, and iced tea will be on store shelves for the holiday season of 2016. Keurig is denying the machine is delayed, but given the problems with the Keurig 2.0 brewer - we’re not surprised. Cold brew coffee is also a growing trend, with Starbucks recently adding it to the menu.

Keurig Admits It Was Wrong about DRM and Taking Away My K-Cup

 

My kcup 20 comingThe My K-Cup reusable filter is coming to Keurig 2.0 this Fall.

Keurig was wrong. Wrong about trying to get it’s consumers to want to only use licensed K-Cups and also wrong about consumers not wanting to use the My K-Cup reusable coffee filter for Keurig 2.0. Sales of brewers and accessories are down - way down and Keurig is scrambling to fix the problem. Brian Kelley the President of Keurig has now stated they are rushing to incorporate formerly unlicensed pod brands so that the coffee makers would work with ‘more than 500 varieties across more than 70 brands’ rather than just Keurig Green Mountain coffee.

This also means the My K-Cup reusable filter is coming back this Fall. 'We underestimated the passion that consumers had for this... We shouldn’t have taken it away, we did. We are bringing it back.’  ‘I would tell you the other thing we heard loud and clear from the consumer, while a very small percent of consumers, a very vocal and intense, passionate consumer who really wanted the My K-cup back, what we learned is... that we want consumers to be able to brew every brand, any brand of coffee in their machine and bringing the My K-cup back allows that,’ Kelley said on the call. ‘We took the My K-cup away and quite honestly we’re wrong.’

It’s nice to see we are returning to the 2004 state of single serve coffee, and the only thing left to do is turn off the DRM on the Keurig 2.0 and we’ll all be happy. In the mean time while you wait for more brands the the My K-Cup remember you can use any coffee you want in the Keurig 2.0 by using the Eco-Fill line of products.

Joey kramer rockin roastin kcups ethiopia

If you like music and you like Rock and Roll you’ve perhaps heard of Aerosmith. One of the founding and current members of Aerosmith is Joey Kramer. We all know there are celebrity chefs in the coffee K-Cup game, but did you know that Joey Kramer has his own line of whole bean and single serve coffee K-Cups?

We received a set of the Joey Kramer's Rockin' & Roastin' Ethiopian Coffee K-Cups along with two other flavors - Guatemala and Sumatra. We decided on the Ethiopian K-Cups to review but would like to say - all of the roasts were quite good.
