Special Reserve Nespresso Maragogype Grand Cru 2014

NESPRESSO SPECIAL RESERVE MARAGOGYPE CAPSULE 2 jpg

Nespresso is at it again with a Special Reserve Maragogype Grand Cru for 2014. Following the success of Hawaii Kona Special Reserve 2012, Nespresso coffee experts have created a Special Reserve Maragogype Grand Cru 2014, composed of extremely rare and immensely precious coffee variety with uncommonly large coffee beans from Central and South America.

‘With Maragogype we have proudly outdone ourselves again,’ said Karsten Ranitzsch, Head of Coffee Nestlé Nespresso SA. ‘Thanks to our longstanding relationships with coffee smallholders, we could source the best Maragogype beans from four distinct origins. We have carefully blended and roasted them to highlight the specificities of their terroir. Due to the scarcity of these precious beans we can only produce a very limited amount, but it is our a privilege to offer this unique sensory experience to connoisseur Club Members who enjoy trying new and rare varieties.’

The Maragogype derives its name from a town in Brazil of the same name where the plant was first discovered in the late 19th century. The unusually large coffee plant, often twice the size of regular coffee plants, has the largest known coffee beans in the world.

Keurig 2.0 Brewer - Is It Worth the Upgrade?

K 20 large

Over at NASDAQ.com they're thinking it's going to be a tough time for Keurig 2.0 if there's not compelling reason to upgrade. Do you think it's worth the upgrade to move to Keurig 2.0? Are you having a tough time thinking about an upgrade when the new brewers cost $129.99 or more and you have a working brewer? You're not alone, and to upgrade they'll need even more K-Cup options and K-Carafe options to entice current customers. 

NASDAQ.com also lays 3 reasons Keurig 2.0 will have a tough time with consumers:

  • Vue has been a failure - No one bought it and those who did can still use VUE packs and K-Cups with an adaptor - but it's over.
  • There is no reason to upgrade - Besides the larger K-Carafe pack is there really anything the new brewers do that's revolutionary?
  • Customers will be annoyed when they buy an unlicensed K-Cup and it does not work -when your old brewer will brew any K-Cup would you switch to a device that makes you only buy Keurig Brewed?

We think in the long run Keurig Green Mountain should be fine, but they'll need to ride these rough waters while the brewer an DRM debacle subsides. Are you upgrading and if you have do you like your new brewer and choices? Who do you think will crack the DRM first and make K-Cups for Keurig 2.0 that are unlicensed?

Campbell's Fresh Brewed Soup K-Cups Missing In Action

Campbell Soup K Cups two

Just last year we had crazy news that Campbell’s Fresh Brewed Soup K-Cups were coming to a Keurig brewer near you. It’s been awhile and they were supposed to ship this Fall but so far nothing. We haven’t heard a peep about soup in a K-Cup.

The agreement last year was supposed to bring the number one single serve coffee maker and the number one soup maker together to bring you Campbell's Fresh-Brewed Soup. The convenient snack will be prepared at the touch of a button, and a mini-meal from a K-Cup will be produced.

We still want our Campbell’s Soup K-Cups - don’t you?

Lavazza Perfetto Coffee K-Cups Review

Keurig lavazza perfetto kcups brewer kcups

 

We conclude our series of Lavazza K-Cup reviews today with the final flavor in their line-up… Lavazza Perfetto K-Cups. This is apparently the strongest roast & strongest tasting coffee of the line-up. Given how disappointed we were with their Gran Selezione K-Cups last time, we’re truly hoping for a return to form this time. Lets see if Lavazza strike out or knock it out of the park. 

Brewing the Lavazza Perfetto K-Cups resulted in aromas of smoky hickory tinged with notes of dark chocolate throughout with a very mild earthiness underneath. Billed as an espresso roast, flavor seemed more akin to a dark roast and wasn’t anywhere as strong as what we were expecting. We did however notice a nice blend of chocolate flavors with caramel notes hiding underneath near the end of each sip.

Get a Starbucks Coffee Every Day for the Rest of Your Life

Starbucks coffee 1 for life

If you love Starbucks coffee you may want to visit one of their cafes twice a day this fall for the opportunity to get free “Starbucks for Life.” Starbucks has announced several traffic-driving initiatives for the holiday season, and it’s offering 100 uniquely designed Starbucks cards that would give customers a chance to get their daily cup of joe for free at the coffee giant’s locations.

The promotion will begin in early December and customers will have the chance to win the promotion twice a day. The promotion is for one free beverage or food item every day for 30 years.
Starbucks said customers can potentially win the “Starbucks for Life” cards by swiping their Starbucks store card or paying with their mobile device.

Imagine the shear number of pumpkin spice lattes you could consume over 30 years of Falls. We go to Starbucks just about twice a week and then a few times on the weekend so our chances aren’t as good as you daily drinkers but knowing we could win will make our visits a little more exciting.

Pumpkin Spice with John Oliver

Pumpkin spice latte jon oliver

Even though John Oliver is on hiatus until next weekend, he did decide to do a web exclusive video on our current trend in Fall coffee and food - Pumpkin Spice. Did you know an average American eats 5 pounds of pumpkin each year? That’s an awful lot of pumpkin spice products per person. We do love our pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, but we could do without all the pumpkin spice pastries. Also - pumpkin pie isn’t one of our favorites and John Oliver sums it up pretty well on how much we aren’t a fan. Video after the jump.
