Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll K-Cups Review

ReviewcinnabonclassiccinnamonrollkcupsIMGP5684

With the recent news that Cinnabon was the ONLY dining choice at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, we figured now was the time to write up a review for the recently introduced Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll K-Cups. We have no idea if any of the Olympic venues or the athlete's village had Keurig single serve brewers installed but we thought it would be interesting to see if our athletes were getting a decent quality coffee at the only dining facility which was open on-site. Will this coffee end up with the gold or go home with a bronze? Lets find out.

Nespresso for U.S. Coffee Drinkers - VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee Maker

Nespresso Vertuo Line Single Serve Coffee Maker

Nestle and Nespresso are stepping up in size from espresso to single serve coffee with the VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee Maker. Trying to win more customers in the US is Nespresso's aim, and the $299 machine will produce eight types of 8-ounce servings and four espresso blends. The VertuoLine will be sold in the U.S. and Canada at Nespresso boutiques, online and at retailers including Macy's Inc, Bloomingdale's and Williams-Sonoma Inc. 

The new machine, which uses a different capsule, and won't be compatible with older Nespresso machines. We're not sure if the machine will be compatible with the existing set of Nespresso capsules. 

Nespresso represents about 25 percent of Nestle's coffee sales and 4 percent of its 92.4 billion francs in total revenue. So why do this right now? Besides the single serve coffee market growing in size year over year, Nespresso has sought to expand Nespresso outside Europe, where it faces an ever-increasing number of copycat capsules from rivals like Mondelez International Inc. This is much the same competition that Green Mountain faces with the after market and unlicensed K-Cups.

Will you be getting a Vertuo Nespresso brewer? We're pretty interested given how much we like their espresso. No exact date on the debut, but we expect it to go head to head with Keurig 2.0 this Fall.

Why Do You Drink Single Serve Coffee?

Coffee Beans Photographed in Macro

The rise of single serve coffee and one cup wonders over the past 10 years hasn’t been that surprising, and the ease of use and variety of coffee it’s brought to us has been stunning. Somedays we often wonder how we’d ever go back to drinking a cup from a pot of coffee, and if we’re even interested in anything but the perfect single cup of coffee.

What do you drink single serve coffee? Why do any of us drink single serve coffee? We have compiled a list of our thoughts on the matter and would love to get yours.

Brooklyn Beans Oh Fudge! Single Cups Review

ReviewbrooklynbeanroasteryohfudgesinglecupsIMGP5703

We continue our look at recent BBR (Brooklyn Bean Roastery) Single Cups today with a review of their Oh Fudge! Single Cups. With an image of a spilled bowl of pudding? (we're not quite sure what that is) and the Oh Fudge! wording on the lid of these Single Cups, we can see that BBR are taking a light-hearted approach towards the naming conventions on their new flavors. It just remains to be seen if this will be a serious contender in the flavor arena or if the name is the only thing we enjoy. Lets get started.

Keurig 2.0 Won't Brew Unlicensed K-Cups

KEURIG 20 1 anohter

So we’ve been sitting back and watching various developments and news tidbits on Keurig 2.0, and we wanted to bring up what appears to be the biggest. Keurig 2.0 won’t brew or allow you to use unlicensed K-Cups in the brewer. All Keurig K-Cup portion packs by the Fall and into next year will have some way to ensure that trying to use an unlicensed K-Cup will make the brewer not function and brew the coffee.

We do know that all older K-Cup brewers will brew and continue to work with the K-Cups with this anti-unlicensed graphic or tech built into the K-Cups. So this means your old brewer will continue to work and it can brew unlicensed K-Cups, but if you want to use the K-Carafe packs and we believe VUE packs you’ll need to get a Keurig 2.0.

Dunkin Donuts Creamers Liven Up Your Coffee

Dunkin donuts creamers

Target and other stores are now carrying Dunkin' Donuts Creamers in a variety of flavors. We love adding a little sugar and cream to our coffee in the morning, and these creamers will do the trick for you. AB found his local Target in Bangor had all the flavors, and here in Boston we found several Targets had all the flavors as well.

  • Dunkin' Donuts Original Creamer - It contains real cream and sugar for a light touch of sweetness when you need it most. Here's to stirring up a classic. 
  • Dunkin' Donuts Fat-Free Creamer - It's made with skim milk and just the right touch of sweetness for sip after sip of guilt-free joy. 
  • Dunkin' Donuts Extra Extra Creamer - Its extra sweet, extra creamy taste comes from real sugar and cream for a wonderfully rich and smooth moment. 
  • Dunkin' Donuts Unsweetened Creamer - It's made with real cream and no added sugar for pure delight, sip after sip.

Krispy Kreme Smooth and Decaf Coffee K-Cups for Keurig Brewers

Krispy kreme kcups

Just when we couldn’t think of another coffee that isn’t on the Keurig K-Cup platform along comes Krispy Kreme Smooth and Decaf Coffees. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. and Krispy Kreme have reached a multiyear agreement to bring Krispy Kreme® signature coffee to K-Cup packs for the Keurig brewing system. GMCR and Krispy Kreme plan to launch Krispy Kreme coffees, Smooth and Decaf by the end of 2014.

With over 800 shops in more than 20 countries, Krispy Kreme is an internationally recognized retail brand. The company serves premium-quality sweet treats, including its signature Original Glazed doughnut, and a growing selection of roasted coffees and specialty beverages. 

We’re excited to have yet another recognizable brand enter into agreement with Green Mountain Coffee, and if only they could figure out how to brew a Krispy Kreme donut as well. :-)

Brooklyn Beans Coney Island Caramel Single Cups Review

ReviewbrooklynbeanroasteryconeyislandcaramelsingleIMGP5670

We continue our look at recent BBR (Brooklyn Bean Roastery) Single Cups today with a review of their Coney Island Caramel Single Cups. After a pleasant performance from their Cinnamon Subway flavor recently, we were interested to see if the other flavored varieties in their line-up were just as good. BBR can make custom-flavored coffees for anyone who wants to enter the single serve coffee market, so we suspect they have some master coffee roasters who know a thing or two about how to properly flavor coffees. Lets find out if this flavor will have us soaring like a roller coaster or waiting in line for the excitement to start.
