Starbucks Lattes Are Underfilled Class Action Lawsuit

Starbucks hot beverage

Starbucks intentionally underfills its lattes by 25 percent, saving the coffee giant millions while ripping-off customers at the same time, a putative class action states.

‘Tall Lattes are not 12 fluid ounces, Grande Lattes are not 16 fluid ounces, and Venti Lattes are not 20 fluid ounces,’ the class action states. ‘Starbucks cheats purchasers by providing less fluid ounces in their Lattes than represented.’"

It seems the way Starbucks fills the lattes is by using lines in a foaming cup and that results in a margin of unfilled cup at the top in the finished latte. This lawsuit is interesting, and we’ll keep you posted as it develops.

Loblaw Grocery Stores of Canada Release Nespresso Compatible Capsules

Loblaw stores

SH just noticed that Loblaw (a major Canadian grocery chain company) has introduced their own line-up of value-priced Nespresso compatible capsules via their President's Choice store brand. It would seem they're trying to emulate the base flavors from Nespresso's Grand Cru line with a few decafs, various intensity roasts and a lungo.
While we're used to seeing store brands for K-Cups, SH thinks this is the first time he's seen store brand Nespresso knock-offs.

From SH: President’s Choice bills itself as "premium-quality substitutions" to national brands and upon my first impressions of their Potente blend, it would seem this is a viable selection for those looking for a slightly cheaper alternative.

Taste was strong & robust with a nice kick overall while the crema produced seemed decent (although not as thick as a normal Nespresso capsule). The capsules themselves are made of a thick colored plastic and come boxed in two matte foil sleeve.

Canadian Update: Starbucks Sulawesi K-Cups / Sweet and Creamy Donut House K-Cups

Sulewasi kcups

SH has an update on some K-Cups and thoughts of what Canadian coffee drinkers want in a K-Cup.

Noticed these at my local Starbucks yesterday. Grabbed a box. To be honest, it tastes just like every other Starbucks dark roast I've had before... can't really determine anything of note. Maybe adding some cream might reveal some of the notes they're mentioning on the packaging, but I haven't tried that yet since I usually always drink coffee black.

As far as what's new for K-Cups in Canada, it seems Keurig Canada are trying to capitalize on a Canadian vice most Canucks are practically born with (myself excluded)... a Tim Horton's "double-double". Traditionally the most popular drink to order at a Tims in Canada, a double-double is a Tim Horton's regular roast with 2 creams & 2 sugars. It makes for a (what I find sickeningly) sweet coffee.

Sweet creamy donut house coffee cab2c en pdp

Well now Keurig has introduced their Donut House Sweet & Creamy Double-Double K-Cups (as a direct response to Nescafe's 3-in-1 knock-off K-Cups). The K-Cups include ground coffee, sucralose as the sweetener and milk/soy-based creamer all in one K-Cup to produce a much more palatable version of a Tim's double-double. Is it creamy? Kind of. Is it sweet? Yep, but nowhere near as sickening as what Tim's usually does to it. 

It'll remain to be seen if Canadians adopt this as their new K-Cup of choice over a traditional Tim's run (and it makes me wonder if Tim Hortons will create their own "official" version).

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Pods for Keurig Machines

Pumpkinspicelattepods

Later this Fall Starbucks will release release a new line of K-cups featuring the Pumpkin Spice Latte flavor. The new Keurig Green Mountain-friendly pods will include caramel, mocha and vanilla latte flavors. Starbucks released the Pumpkin Spice Latte on Sept. 8—just after Labor Day. The revamped recipe now includes real pumpkin.

Originally launched in 2003, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is flavored with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove and is widely credited with launching the ubiquitous pumpkin-spiced flavor craze. It continues to be a seasonal best-seller for the coffee giant.

The RAFINO - Coffee Grind Refining System

Rafino Perfect Grind Every Time

The RAFINO - Coffee Grind Refining System is a coffee refining system that delivers the most consistent grind with micron level precision. They are currently looking to raise money on Kickstarter but we don’t expect this one to not get funded. It’s a brilliant idea to get a more consistent cup of coffee and be able to sort the grind level. 

Key features include:

  • The RAFINO gives you full control over your grind size. With the RAFINO, you can customize your coffee recipe down to a precise micron range. Use only the grinds you want! Nothing bigger, and nothing smaller, e.g. 400-800μm, 500-700μm.
  • The RAFINO offers eight interchangeable and easy-to-clean sieve sizes ranging from 300 to 1000 microns in 100 micron intervals.
  • The sieves give you full control over your grind and let you specify the appropriate grind size, down to the micron…

Is Keurig KOLD Kaput?

Kold kaput

KOLD doesn’t seem to be getting met with warm feelings from potential buyers, and the latest ad from Bed Bath and Beyond has it at $170 off the list price. We think KOLD was overpriced and too large to begin with anyways, but it’s interesting to see how steep a discount the new machine is already getting.

Is this to make way for a better KOLD or have consumers with their wallets and interest told Keurig - KOLD is kaput and to not even bother. We should know in the coming months if KOLD continues, but we do expect Keurig to give it one more go with a smaller KOLD machine.
