Ceramic Coffee Filter from Japan

pourover_filter.jpg

If you're looking to up your pour over coffee game, then getting a ceramic coffee filter from Japan will do it. The porous membrane in this ceramic filter makes paper filters a thing of the past. You can also use it to filter water and make it a little better tasting. This set comes with both the filter and the dripper.

What's coffee like from a ceramic filter? The resulting coffee is akin to heated cold brew. Also extraction time averages between three and four minutes, which is on par with other more conventional filter types.

You can read a detailed article of the ceramic filter here.

Happy Single Serve Coffee New Year 2016

2016 newyear ssc

We started our New Years with a bunch of great movie viewing late last night, followed by a brisk run this morning in 2016. We have lots on tap for 2016 and it’s our 12th anniversary in May. We simply can’t believe it’s been 12 years since we launched Single Serve Coffee. 12 years is a long time, but we can imagine another 12 years of blogging ahead and enjoying lots more single serve coffee.

Thanks to everyone for contributing all of your news and cheer in 2015, and we expect even more contributors to step up in 2016 so we can bring you the news everyday.

Raise your cup to 2016 - this year is going to be AWESOME!

Are Unfixable Keurig Machines Adding to Keurig's Troubles?

12341596 10207166763521072 5122626786756710457 n

 

Over at iFixit they’ve pulled together a post based on a post from a Washington-state coffee machine repairman, Joe Young. Joe has been making the rounds on Facebook—racking up nearly 30,000 shares in a few days about how unfixable Keurig single serve coffee makers are. Young posted a photo of a van stacked wall-to-wall with Keurig coffeemakers. All of them destined for the dump, because they cannot be repaired.

We do know however most of these coffee makers have lots of parts inside that can be recycled, so we don’t think you have to just throw a Keurig maker away. Our local elementary school recycles small appliances each spring and over the years we’ve donated many older single serve coffee makers to get recycled. 

But it does beg the question of how sustainable the Keurig business model is with K-Cups that are not recyclable and machines that are impossible or nearly impossible to repair. We’ll just have to see if Keurig responds to Joe Young’s claim of unfixable. We also know that many of the office Keurig machines of old were repaired all the time - so maybe it’s just the newer more electronic models that are unfixable.
