The pour over dripper is one of those coffee methods that if done correctly yields amazing results. You use a paper filter and slowly pour water over a bed of dry coffee grounds while the brewed liquid drips out of the bottom.
Tons of coffee snobs rank the Kalita Wave higher than other pour-over brewers because its flat bottomed filters allow for a more even extraction. You've also got to love the way it looks with it's Art Deco styling and how it comes in a variety of styles.
We're all tired of using the insulated sleeve because it makes us feel like we're wasting more paper for just the few minutes it takes for the coffee cup to cool. Snap N'Go is a plastic handle that can be reused as many as 40 times, and it eliminates the need for the insulating sleeve.
The handle measures 2.5" in length, and it's lightweight (5g., less than 1/5 oz.) and styled to avoid obstructing the cup graphics. The Snap N'Go is usable on most disposable hot cups up to 24 fl.oz. in size. It is 100% manufactured in North America.
While out with my wife today we stopped by our local Bed Bath & Beyond in Bangor. We found for the Vue Starbucks Decaf House Blend, Bigelow English Breakfast Tea, Hawaiian Blend, Island Coconut, and peach Snapple in K-cups.
I am glad to see they are offering more variety for the Vue.
It's really nice to see an expansion of the VUE line, along with Peach Snapple K-Cups making us excited for some Spring weather to drink them in.
Each year, one of the fan favorite coffees from Starbucks which most people look forward to would have to be Starbucks Tribute Blend. It was originally released as a limited edition but there was so much demand that Starbucks decided to add it as a regular yearly seasonal coffee much to everyone's delight. Culled from a blend of coffees from several different growing regions, Tribute Blend is a blend of Ethiopian, Sumatran, Colombian & Papua New Guinea coffees which come together to form a balance of fruity, spicy, nutty & herbal notes paired with Starbucks signature smoky taste & aroma.
Unlike previous seasonal K-Cup flavors, Starbucks decided to move away from flashy foil designs and have gone back to plain painted designs instead. We get the usual silver Starbucks logo paired with this year's angular abstract background design. As with some of their recent seasonal K-Cups, they've also decided to include the "vintage year" of 2013 on the packaging & lid. Something which sort of ads collectability if you're someone who prefers to stockpile your K-Cup stash vs. blowing through them all at once. To be honest, we didn't even think we'd see Tribute Blend K-Cups this year since our local shop only had small half-pound bags of whole beans available for the first week of March and these K-Cups only appeared within the past few days. Needless to say we're glad Starbucks decided to continue releasing their seasonal coffees in K-Cup format and look forward to more releases over the coming month.
The X-Wing Coffee Table is another creation of Barry Shields who is famous for his Star Trek USS Enterprise coffee table. Priced at a cheap $60,000 US dollars (apparently due to the amount of time and labor used in carving the X-Wing) we don't think we'll be buying one anytime soon.
We forge ahead in our Martinson Real Cup review series today with a flavor that most coffee companies refer to as their staple flavor, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one plays out. Today we take a look at the Martinson House Blend Real Cups.
Brewing these Real Cups resulted in mild aromas of smoke with a faint earthiness touched by hints of chocolate and the very faintest tinges of molasses underneath. Flavor was a mix of dark chocolate with smoky notes throughout followed by hints of molasses and a bit of an oily taste near the end. Acidity was definitely present as we got some sour notes near the middle of each sip and while it was leaning on the stronger side, it wasn’t off the charts like some of the other flavors we’ve tried in the line-up so far. It wasn’t enough to wash-out the flavors but it could have been slightly toned-down a bit for our liking.
Starbucks Tribute Blend is back and in K-Cup form. Created to celebrate Starbucks 40th anniversary, this coffee combines four of our all-time favorite coffees: Ethiopian sun-dried beans with an exotic flourish of dark cherry; Aged Sumatra, loved for its syrupy body and cedary spice notes; juicy herbal and complex coffees from Papua New Guinea; and our Colombia coffee, bright, balanced and nutty. It's one of our favorites here at Single Serve Coffee. Starbucks Tribute Blend K-Cups will work in all K-Cup Brewers.
Mugtails are coffee cups with your favorite animal tails on the side used for a handle. They come with both big and small tails to make sure the tail matches your cup of single serve coffee. We're pretty partial to squirrels and coffee aren't you?
Yes - that's a microscope and a Nespresso right next to each other working side by side in perfect harmony.
We're excited to share with you another cool single serve coffee setup and this on is from Turkey. Prof.Dr. Hamdi Akan has sent us in pictures of his office at the Ankara University Medical School, Department of Hematology, Ankara, TURKEY. We're impressed and it shows his dedication to not only medicine but good coffee.
If you want us to feature your Single Serve Coffee setup please send us an email with pictures and tell us a little about your setup as well.
