Van Houtte Mocaccino Specialty Collection K-Cups Review

VH Mocaccino Boxreviewvanhouttemocaccinospecialtycollectionkcups

While it’s no secret that Canadians have had an ok but rather, shall we say… limited selection of K-Cup brands and flavors when compared to USA over the past several years and that we’ve seen some rather bizarre attempts at making Canadianized versions of existing American flavors such as:

  • Kraft’s option to use UpShot Single Cups for their Gevalia Single Cups vs. using their own custom expanding corrugated plastic Single Cups
  • McDonalds Canada remaining an unlicensed Single Cup and using UpShot Single Cups instead of being a licensed Keurig K-Cup
  • Keurig Canada renaming some Coffee People flavors when the coffees were introduced to Canada (i.e. Jet Fuel became Turbo Caffeine)
  • Many more odd changes we won’t get into (trust us, the list goes on and on)

It’s still nowhere as bad as competing single serve coffee choices for machines such as the Tassimo or the now all but dead Nescafe Dolce Gusto (dwindling capsule retail supplies have all but vanished off store shelves and the machines aren’t even sold in most retail stores anymore). Out of all the different single serve coffee machines, Keurig is the only one which regularly releases more than 1 new flavor every few months and when flavors are released, they tend to arrive in batches where you’ll get upwards of 3 or 6 choices at times. The update frequency is also much greater than competing machines (every 3-5 months vs. every 6-10 months or longer).

BOD the Heart, Stomach and Smile Friendly Cold Brew Coffee System

The BODcoffee cold brew

There's a lot of new brewers our there using French press or espresso methods, and the coffee produced is really great but can be higher in acid and also tough on the stomach. There's also a growing number of cold brew systems that are claiming to produce coffee with less acid, and a smoother cup of coffee. The BOD Coffee system uses a cold water infusion method to create a super-concentrated coffee extract that has:

  • 82% less Cafestol than French press & espresso to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels
  • 69% less total acid than drip coffee
  • 58% less tannic acid than drip coffee

Gourmesso Bolivia Pura Mezzo Nespresso Compatible Coffee Capsules Review

Gourmesso box shot

Gourmesso is a fairly recent player to the Nespresso compatible coffee capsule market. Gourmet recently sent us a wide range of their Nespresso compatible Lungo and Espresso capsules. Most of their coffees are Fair Trade, and we decided to start with the Bolivia Pure Mezzo Gourmesso capsules. Each of their capsules come packed in boxes with 10 capsules with 2 capsules to each pouch. The pouches are not resealable, but we didn’t seem to have a problem pulling a few shots of each and not letting the coffee get stale.

Cafflano - Pourover Travel Mug

Cafflano brewer

Single serve coffee in pour over form is the latest trend that doesn’t seem to be trending to go away. The coffee produced is really great, but having to take your setup on the go has been so far challenging. The Cafflano is designed as a simple, portable system for remote or space-saving pourover brewing.

Cafflano parts description1 600x331

The Cafflano contains a tumbler, a reusable drip filter, a hand mill ceramic burr grinder with a folding metal handle, and a top that doubles as a drip kettle through a small opening. Th entire Cafflano screws together creating a single 7.5-inch tall kit that weighs about a pound. You’ll still need a source of hot water and you’ll need to bring your favorite coffee as well to the pour over party.
