Duracell and Starbucks Team Up for a Wireless Charging Revolution

Duracell powermat starbucks

Starbucks and Duracell are going to integrate the Duracell Powermat into just about every Starbucks store. The real news is a new wireless receiver dongle that means you don’t have to have an entire charging case around your iPhone to charge it. The wireless charging receiver dongle is compatible with any Apple 30-pin, Lightning, or Micro-USB at your nearest coffee outlet. 

We’re very excited to be able to hang, and put our iPhone onto a charging ring so we won’t run out of power while we sip our 3rd Chai Tea Latte or Skinny Mocha this year.

Nomad - The Go Everywhere Espresso Machine

The Nomad Espresso Machine 1

The Nomad - The Go Everywhere Espresso Machine was successfully funded at Kickstarter last year, and according to their December 2013 update they are close to production. We’re pretty big on portable single serve coffee, and the Nomad is a portable espresso machine if you want high quality espresso on the go. It needs no electricity, batteries, or high pressure gas cartridges. There are no expensive wasteful coffee pods or capsules to be discarded.

The Nomad is the size of a 15 cm cube, weighs 1.1 kg, and requires no electricity. With very little effort the Nomad produces 9 bars of pressure and is equipped with a proprietary True Crema Valve which compensates for coarser grounds and tamping variations. When used with the True Crema Valve anyone can make great espresso and coffee without having expensive grinding equipment and extensive training.

How does it work? Just pack ground coffee, add hot water, and actuate the pump lever.

Archer Farms Caramel Macchiato Single Cups Review

ReviewarcherfarmscaramelmacchiatosinglecupsIMGP5607

Archer Farms is Target's own in-house brand for food products and we decided to continue checking out their single serve coffee line-up today by reviewing their Archer Farms Caramel Macchiato Single Cups. As we've noted in previous reviews, there's no indication or branding anywhere on the packaging to indicate that Real Cups are being used for Archer Farms single serve products, but given the similarities, we wouldn't be surprised if that turned out to be the case.

Typically a milk-based frothy drink, a conventional caramel macchiato this is not. We were wondering just what goal Archer Farms were trying to aim for here and could only come to the conclusion that they wanted to produce a regular coffee that had a similar taste as a macchiato. This would seem rather difficult given the fact that there's no milk ingredients present in these Single Cups and for the sake of not altering the final flavor, we decided not to add any milk creamer for this review although we can see how that might help move things more in line with the actual flavor of a macchiato-style drink.

Tweet a Starbucks Coffee to a Friend

Starbucks

Social media is in our lives to stay, and now we can see why it's in our coffee lives. Twitter and Starbucks announced a partnership this past month resulting in the program called 'Tweet-a-Coffee'. The program allows you to send gifts of coffee to friends via Twitter.

How does it work? Using Twitter you tweet '@tweetacoffee to' and write in the twitter name  of the recipient. The sender must have an account on Starbucks.com, and after linking the two accounts and entering credit card information through Starbucks, you can tweet a 'coffee' to friends of your choosing. The eGifts come in $5 denominations and can be redeemed by printing out the eGift or loading it to a Starbucks digital card.

Video after the jump to explain it all.

Archer Farms Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee Single Cups Review

 

ReviewarcherfarmsvanillabeancremebruleesinglecupsIMGP5594

Now that the patent is expired and we’ve been seeing just about every company imaginable get into the aftermarket knock-off K-Cup scene, it should come as no surprise that grocery stores and big box department stores would want their own in-house brand of coffee to be offered in Keurig-compatible single cup format as well. Such is the case this time around as Target decided to introduce the item we’re reviewing today… Archer Farms Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée Single Cups.

As noted above, Archer Farms is Target’s own primary in-house food brand and you can get anything from Archer Farms cereals to salsas. While their coffees have always been available in whole bean & ground format before, this marks the first time they’ve made the transition to a single serve format. Although we couldn’t find any indication on the packaging, we’re going to take a guess and say that Target is using the Real Cup format or something very similar but since there’s no official branding anywhere, we’ll continue referring to them as Single Cups.
