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.

Coffee Time is any time, and we're pretty excited we got some Coffee Time single serve capsules to review. We recently received a few 12 packs of their medium roast Coffee Time blend, and though these capsules aren't available in the US, they are available in Canada so get driving.
Coffee Time if you are unfamiliar is a chain of coffee shops that feature pretty amazing breakfast sandwiches along with some really decent coffee. They've also recently added single serve coffee capsules to their offerings for anyone with a Keurig K-Cup Brewers but not Keurig 2.0.
