TechCrunch has a pretty strong opinion on Keurig KOLD - it’s a bit of an odd duck.
The Keurig Kold is such an odd product that it almost looks like it came from a distant world where no one cares about corn syrup ingestion. Clad in white plastic and covered in grills, the case is far bigger than anything else in your kitchen and makes a noise like Darth Vader taking a nap.
They also go on to say the machine is rather pointless given the price of soda. What do you think? Is the Keurig KOLD just a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist? Is single serve soda going to take off? Did you buy a KOLD? If so do you like it?
The jury is still out for us here. We see the appeal of the machine and convenience, but the price for the machine and the KOLD cartridges is really high. Also the size of the machine on the counter is really large. We’ll have to see how this plays out over the holidays but so far the reviews for the KOLD and articles are not that kind.

Ember the Temperature Adjustable Mug is the mug you’ve been wanting to keep your coffee at the right temperature instead of scalding hot or miserably cold. Ember is a thermos which you can adjust the temperature of to make it exactly to your liking, and can keep it that way for up to two hours when it’s away from its charging coaster.

The Handpresso company has specialized in portable espresso machines since 2008, and it comes to no surprise they’re launching a new version of the Handpresso Pump in funky colors. Called the Handpresso Pump Pop, the latest portable espresso maker from Handpresso comes in funky colours (pink, apple green or sky blue on a white body).
This has not been achieved at the expense of quality. The Handpresso Pump Pop is as sturdy as ever and can be brought along in the most extreme situations. To illustrate this, Handpresso has made a range of fun short videos presenting the product in lots of unusual situations, e.g. underwater, while skiing, in the supermarket.
Video after the jump. Continue reading: "Handpresso Pump Pop - On The Go Extreme Espresso"

This may indeed be one bad idea leading to another because Progresso Broccoli Cheese Soup K-Cups. AB found these on a recent trip to Wal-Mart in Bangor, ME so we would expect them to be at Walmarts nationwide. They are part of a line of Progresso Bistro Cups which also includes oatmeal.
We’re guessing if you like freeze dried broccoli and powdered cream this might be the soup for you. They run $9.99 for a box of 3 and will work in K-Cup Brewers and Keurig 2.0. You can also check out their FAQ and read more about the products.

If you're looking to not get a Keurig KOLD and have something to perhaps mix a drink with or just enjoy over ice you'll want to check out Coconut Splash Coconut Water single cups. They pour over ice using your K-Cup brewer, and produce tasty coconut flavored with a touch of pineapple. What we like is the flavor - it's refreshing, light, but still very flavorful.
We've been enjoying these over the past 2 weeks thanks to Shoffee.com for sending them. We suggest you check them out and perhaps mix a cocktail that may include a little rum with them as well.

We've had a reader write in about about a new coffee from Tassimo - Sensations Medium Roast. We haven't seen these T-Discs in the Boston area have you? We'll keep an eye out but perhaps these are Canadian only?

3D printing is on the rise in the United States and world wide, and if you want to use some eco-conscious 3D ink or filament so far you’ve been out of luck. 3Dom – one of the largest manufacturers of filament for 3D printing – has teamed up with biocomposite developer c2renew to bring the filament made from recycled coffee grounds. How does it work?
Wound Up is a coffee filled 3D printing filament made using waste byproducts from coffee. Wound Up uses those coffee left-overs to create a special 3D printing material with visibly unique print finishes. The filament produces products with a rich brown color and a noticeable natural grain. There’s also a video available about Wound Up here.
So remember if you print a coffee cup with Wound Up it’s really a coffee cup through and through.
