It's almost Summer and I decided to stop by our local target in Watertown, MA and see what the state of single serve coffee. I found lots of Keurig 2.0 and some other assorted brewers. I missed capturing an end cap of the Nespresso Vertuoline, but it was there. It seems the state of Target is lots of Keurig 2.0 with a bit of Nespresso sprinkled in.
Lots of Keurig mini brewers and stock of non-Keurig brewers seems to be less than the Keurig 2.0 brewers. I wonder why?
If you need a Mr. Coffee Keurig K-Cup brewer it's going to set you back a sweet sweet $87.99.
So there you have it. Not that much going on but not that much not going on either. I think it's safe to say Keurig is still ruling the roost at Target, but it's nice to see all the other brewer options as well. The coffee selection here and in the grocery section was pretty decent, with not a lot of new stuff. I'll try and get a detailed round up of that in the coming weeks.

When’s the best time to drink a cup of coffee? Well it’s not right after you get up in the morning. Due to the release of Cortisol and your circadian rhythm at 8-9 am the release of cortisol peaks at this time, and if you drink caffeine/coffee at that time makes you more resistant to it, thus making it more ineffective.
You also want to avoid 12-1pm and 5:30-6pm if you want to feel the benefits of the coffee you’re drinking. Another way to do make sure your cup of coffee does it’s magic the best - wait until 1 hour after you get up in the morning regardless of the time. Why? When you wake up 50% of the cortisol is released, and waiting 1 hour until you drink your cup of coffee ensures you’ll get the benefits of the caffeine.

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.
