Italy’s Coffee Pot King Buried in Moka Pot

If you invent a coffee pot that roughly sells 330 million copies, then you will be buried in it. That’s just how it works. Renato Bialetti, the Italian businessman who turned an aluminum coffee pot into a classic global design, died last week at the age of 93. A man named Luigi di Ponti designed the appliance in 1933 and sold the patent to Renato’s father Alfonso Bialetti, an aluminum vendor.

Bialetti’s Moka-shaped urn now lies in the family plot in Omegna, Italy.

Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter

71cpiUs15OL SL1500

The Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter is our current pour over single serve coffee maker. We got it as a gift recently, and have also been using a #4 filter with it to produce a richer cup of coffee. The set includes a permanent stainless steel mesh filer, but as stated we often combine it with a paper filter. If you choose to use the permanent filter only, you can save a few bucks on not getting paper ones.

The carafe is made of mouth-blown borosilicate glass, and is dishwasher safe. We love the silicone wrapper in the middle to grab and pour your cup of coffee. Overall we’re pretty happy with the Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter and it’s priced right at $30.

Keurig Sales Continue To Fall

Keurig 250 brewer

Over at NPR and other sites we’re finding stories of Keurig’s sales continuing to fall. Sales are in the decline at Keurig with bookings down some $60 million from last year. Besides K-Cups not being kind to the environment, there’s also been a general dislike of Keurig 2.0 and Keurig KOLD sales are supposedly not great either. 

What do you think are Keurig’s troubles? Remember when K-Cups were supposed to take over the world? We did and still think they might if Keurig can make some changes.

SCAA Unveils a New Coffee Taster’s Flavor Wheel

Scaa flavor wheel coffee

It’s been a great 21 years with the current coffee taster flavor wheel, but that great time has come to an end. Considered both an art piece and sensory analysis tool, the coffee taster flavor wheel has been updated and it’s even bigger and hopefully better than before.

“This is the largest and most collaborative piece of research on coffee flavor ever completed, inspiring a new set of vocabulary for industry professionals,” SCAA Chronicle Executive Editor Lily Kubota wrote in a piece published today. “This groundbreaking new tool will shift the way our industry thinks about and utilizes coffee flavor.”

You can read an in depth article on creating the new flavor wheel here.

Flavia soup mix

You can now get single serve soup packs for your Flavia brewer. Seeds of Change Tomato Soup will add a little wholesomeness to your day. Made with rich, organic tomatoes, enjoy it as a quick snack in-between meals or as a savory treat any time of the day. Low on calories and big on taste, it's a fill-up you can feel good about.

Also unlike K-Cups where the soup and brew head can get souped up at least with the Flavia every drink/soup comes from separate pouches and nothing ever touches any part of the machine.

Thanks to AC for sending this in.

Starbucks Secret Menu Adventure - The Undertow

Specialundertowthoughts

We frequent Starbucks on a semi-daily basis, and we do enjoy the seasonal beverages but they always feel so limited. It’s pretty exciting to find out there are secret Starbuck menu items and loads of them. We recently were told of a fabled beverage named “The Undertow”, and it sounds pretty yummy.

The Undertow has been around for a long time, unofficially, as an off-the-menu Starbucks drink. When done correctly, it’s about a 4 to 6 ounce beverage, with cold milk on the bottom with espresso shots floating on top. In the Starbuckian world, I’ve heard a lot of people order it with vanilla syrup or even white mocha sauce on the bottom (or pre-stirred in with the milk).

Have you tried “The Undertow”? Do you know of any other secret menu items at Starbucks? We also found a site that lists over 200+ secret menu items. We have so much Starbucking to do now.
