Hamilton Beach Single Serve Scoop Coffee Maker

Hamilton beach single serve scoop coffee maker

We often don’t associate ground coffee you scoop with single serve coffee makers, but the Hamilton Beach 49981A Single Serve Scoop Coffee Maker makes coffee right after you scoop. You can brew your own ground coffee with single-serve scoop filter, and brew up to a 14oz cup of coffee into a travel mug or coffee cup. The brewer is made of stainless steel, and has a built in coffee stand for travel mugs.

We’ve always enjoyed the various coffee makers from Hamilton Beach, and there’s always their Brew Station coffee maker if you want a more on demand option.

Folgers Gourmet Selections French Roast K-Cups Review

ReviewfolgersgourmetselectionsfrenchroastkcupsIMGP5773

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any new K-Cups from Folgers, so we were caught a bit off guard recently when when stumbled across this new flavor on Keurig’s site a few days ago. While it may not be a flavored variety this time around and while it may seem a bit redundant given their Black Silk flavor is already a pretty strong dark roast coffee, we were curious to see what these new Folgers Gourmet Selections French Roast K-Cups would be like. Let’s find out.

Brewing these K-Cups resulted in strong smoky hickory notes with some very mild peppery notes lurking underneath. Oddly enough though, aroma didn’t seem as strong as what we’re used to with typical French Roast coffees. This carried through in the flavor as we also got smoky notes up front blended with dark cocoa and some faint citrus notes as things faded into a peppery finish near the end of each sip. It’s been a while since we had the Black Silk K-Cups but we’re a bit surprised that this flavor is turning out to be a bit lighter than that. Definitely not what we were expecting. Give us a second while we check the packaging again… nope, it says French Roast. Hmmm… strange.

It’s no doubt the Aeropress is one of the most popular single serve coffee makers, and also one of the best. We reviewed the Aeropress back in 2006, and it’s still one of our go-to single serve coffee makers. Why? It makes an amazing cup of coffee, and it only requires minimal interaction to get a perfect cup of coffee every time.

The Q&A also has some info on Alan Adler’s earlier days as a toy designer. If you didn’t know he invented the Aerobie frisbee, and other toys. Head over to Fast Company for the full read, and yes those are male enhancing devices with the Aeropress in the middle. Choose your coffee press wisely...
