Seattle's Best Coffee Introducing K-Cups

Seattle's Best K-Cups

Over the Summer we found Seattle's Best was testing K-Cups at Subway restaurants indicating sometime in the future they would be selling them at retail. The future of Seattle's Best selling K-Cups at supermarkets is now. Seattle's Best Coffee is launching K-cups and instant-coffee packages to be sold in supermarkets, and this means Starbucks is adding even more to it's retail presence and how important single serve coffee is to Starbucks.

Seattle's Best is also launching two new roast blends - House Blend and Breakfast Blend. The packaging from this summer has changed to a red and white design to distinguish it a bit more from other single serve coffee offerings.

The entire line up of Seattle's Best coffee blends include:

  • Seattle's Best Breakfast Blend K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestSignature Blend 3 K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestToasted Hazelnut K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestHouse Blend K-Cups
  • Seattle's BestVery Vanilla K-Cups

Keurig 2.0 - Home Brewing System to Brew a Single Cup and a Carafe of Coffee Using Keurig Brand Packs

Keurig20 brewer carafe single cup

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Keurig brewing technology, today detailed its new K-Carafe capability for its Keurig 2.0 Brewing System, available for sale in Fall 2014. Keurig 2.0 brewers will be the first system to brew both one cup using a single serve pack and a carafe of coffee using the new Keurig K-Carafe pack. We've anxiously been waiting to see if the Keurig 2.0 would be able to use VUE and K-Cup packs, but it looks like being able to meet the needs of a large pot of coffee is what Keurig 2.0 is all about. 

'Both current Keurig brewer owners and non-owners told us the brewer functionality they wanted most was the ability to brew both a single serving and a pot of coffee from one system with Keurig speed, convenience and brand choice. Our next generation Keurig 2.0 brewers will do just that,' said Brian P. Kelley, President and CEO of GMCR.

Brooklyn Beans K Cups

Here’s a few reasons why you should check out Brooklyn Beans Coffees for your K-Cup Brewer:

  • Highest quality of coffee beans; 100% Arabica coffee beans available in 12 specialty blends. Revolutionary ‘Roast2Cup’ processing for extra freshness and premium flavor. You are guaranteed a fresh-brewed cup every time. Crafted with pride in the USA. Compatible with many popular single-serve coffee machines.

  • Unwavering Quality Five separate, important quality-control checks are performed with every batch we make:
  • Visual inspection – only the best coffee beans make the initial cut. Supervisor-monitored grinding – A little secret: if it’s too coarse, it won’t brew properly; if it’s too fine, the coffee gets bitter.
  • Portion quality control – precisely the right amount is packed to ensure the best brew every time. 

A special thanks to Brooklyn Beans for sending us a variety of their single cups to try.

AWAKE Caffeinated Milk Chocolate Bar - Skip the Coffee

Awake chocolate bar

The AWAKE Milk Chocolate Bar is a delicious caffeinated milk chocolate bar that might just replace a cup of coffee in your day. The caffeine content is comparable to a cup of coffee, and the bar is breakable into 4 segments. 

We love a good chocolate bar, and think if you’re looking for a way to double your caffeine in the afternoon, perhaps having a piece of chocolate and some coffee might do the trick. How much caffeine do you need to pick you up? Considering you can get up to 500 milligrams a day before things start to go south, then having  little chocolate and coffee is a good thing. Just don’t triple it up with an espresso if you don’t want to go over your daily limit.

Gevalia Mocha Latte Single Cups for K-Cup Brewers Review

 

ReviewgevaliamochalattesinglecupsIMGP5614

We never thought we’d see the day where Kraft would be going behind enemy lines and creating their own version of K-Cups using their existing coffee brands which they currently also produce for their own Tassimo system in T-Disc format but that’s exactly what occurred (much to Kraft’s delight, we’re sure) when Keurig’s patents expired several months ago. You can now get anything from Maxwell House to Yuban Single Cups which are all compatible with Keurig K-Cup brewers. It makes us wonder if someday we’ll see Keurig making Green Mountain T-Discs for the Tassimo system should Kraft let their own patent expire. The avalanche of T-Disc knock-offs which would result simply boggles the mind and causes our wallets to feel as if they were designed in Cupertino and just earned the Air moniker as we’re certain they’d suddenly feel a whole lot lighter than before.

Diet Snapple Peach Iced Tea and Lemon Iced Tea K-Cups

Diet snapple kcups

Snapple Diet K-Cups are here in Peached Iced Tea and Lemon Iced Tea varieties. We've been wondering when non-sugared version of these K-Cups would debut, and they're here in the dead of winter. The diet versions do have Aspartame, but the rest is all natural. We'll probably hold off on ordering these until the weather gets above 2 degrees F, but then again stocking up for the Spring and Summer might be in order.

  • Diet Peach Iced Tea by Snapple - Perfect peach flavor blended with green and black tea to create Diet Snapple® Peach iced tea. You won’t believe this peach of a tea could have this much taste and still be called diet Ingredients: Black and Green tea leaves and extracts, Citric Acid, Aspartame, Natural Flavor
  • Diet Lemon Iced Tea by Snapple - Life handed us lemons, we picked out the best ones and blended their lemon flavor with green and black tea to create delicious Diet Snapple® Lemon iced tea.

Starbucks Guatemala Casi Cielo K-Cup Packs are Back

Casi Cielo K-Cup Packs are Back

AB on a trip to Starbucks yesterday found Guatemala Casi Cielo K-Cup Packs. They have returned for the 2014 season, and run $12.99 for a box of 12. Why are we excited about these K-Cups? The words casi cielo mean ‘almost heaven.’, and this coffee is a little cup of heaven in every sip.

This coffee was originally developed to be the ultimate ‘fine-dining’ experience, working with the chefs at Seattle’s legendary Canlis restaurant. The coffee was designed to pair perfectly with a variety of gourmet entrees and desserts – particularly those with savory herbs or cheeses, rich chocolate or berries.

This coffee For years was only available to a few, choice establishments. But the clamor for Guatemala Casi Cielo has been so relentless, and the coffee so good, that eventually it’s been made available for everyone with a K-Cup Brewer to enjoy.

Gloria Jeans Caramel Almond Torte K-Cups Review

ReviewgloriajeanscaramelalmondtortekcupsIMGP5585

Gloria Jeans is a brand that has stuck around and endured the years with Keurig ever since the company first started creating K-Cup brewers and for the longest time, we hadn't seen any new flavors emerge under the brand for just as long. Then a few years ago, we started getting tips from our readers that the brand was releasing new flavors but that they could only be purchased at select retailers. The same holds true today as we check out a flavor that was originally only available at Target stores across USA... Gloria Jeans Caramel Almond Torte K-Cups.

Canadiano - Single Cup Pour Over Wood Coffee Filter

Canadiano Coffee Brewer

If you've ever wondered about making coffee poured through cherry, walnut, or maple woods - Canadiano is for you. Carved out of Cherry, Walnut and Maple wood, the Canadiano is the Canadian pour-over method of brewing coffee. You place the Canadiano on your cup, add two spoons of coffee and pour hot water into the wooden bowl. 2-4 minutes later your coffee is ready. Because the Canadiano is made of wood, overtime the coffee oils of your specific beans and roast will be absorbed into the wood and be a part of your morning coffee experience.

Canadiano Back and sides 1024x445

Each type of wood is matched with different beans and roasts from around the world. The Walnut edition is crafted and designed for use with darker roasts and earthier flavors such as beans from South East Asia. Maple and Cherry is designed for beans with slight citrus hints and nutty taste.

There's also a metal filter to reduce waste and lower your environmental impact by not using paper filters similar to other pour-over techniques.

Full video after the jump and it's got a little profanity in it.
