Gourmesso - Espresso and Lungo Nespresso Compatible Capsules

Soffio nocciola

We've received a large selection of Gourmesso Espresso and Lungo capsules to review. Gourmesso capsules are compatible with all Nespresso machines that use the 1.0 capsule format or OriginalLine Nespresso machines. They also come packaged in a two pack enclosures at 10 capsules per box.

Gourmesso espresso is available from only $0.45 per capsule, while other brands sell their alternative Nespresso capsules around $0.65 or more. Their coffee comes from some of the best regions of the world, and each espresso capsule is made up of beans that have been roasted, ground, measured and packaged with extreme care.

Some great features of Gourmesso include:

  • Free shipping on orders of $50 or more
  • Compatible with all OriginalLine Nespresso®* machines
  • Production of high quality coffee beans
  • A Nespresso alternative available in 20 different varieties
  • Great offers and deals every month!

We've sampled many of the Gourmesso varieties, and so far one of our favorite is the Hazelnut. We'll have a full review soon.

Ez-Cup 2.0 - Use Any Coffee You Want with Keurig 2.0 Brewers

Ecofill 2 0 Keurig K cup brewers

The Ez-cup for Keurig 2.0 allows you to use any coffee you want in Keurig 2.0 single serve coffee makers. It’s uses paper filters to put your choice of ground coffee in, and they are then compostable or you can throw them away with ease.

If you want a reusable coffee filter then we suggest the Eco-Fill 2.0 which also allows you to use any coffee you want in Keurig 2.0 brewers. The EZ-Cup 2.0 works with all Keurig 2.0 brewers including K350, K450, K550, and with all K-Cup Brewers. We’ve received both products to review and they work great in 1.0 and 2.0 Keurig K-Cup brewers. We’ll have a full review soon.

The Philips SENSEO Up coffee maker isn’t available in the US any longer, but world wide it’s still a phenomenon. The Philips Up uses more of recycled plastics than probably any other coffee machine on the market today, and keeps environment healthy by using compostable coffee pods.

  • Strength Select - Choose between Strong Short and Mild Long coffee
  • One cup is brewed in just 30 seconds.
  • Direct Start button -  turn it on and brew the coffee at one touch. 
  • SENSEO coffee machine switches off automatically right after brewing to save electricity.

GanoD Coffee Tea BrewKups for K-Cup Brewers

 

Og dano k cups

We received a set of BrewKups from GanoD Coffee Tea, and found the Toasted Hazelnut BrewKups quite good. The GanoD Coffee Tea BrewKups offer a single-serve, efficient, convenient and quality cup of freshly brewed coffee in under a minute, and each coffee BrewKup contains Organic Ganoderma Lucidum Powder.

What is  Organic Ganoderma Lucidum Powder? It’s a powder made from the spores of mushrooms that has claims of major health benefits. Some of those include:

  • Liver Protection & Detoxification
  • Effect on Cardiovascular
  • Aging Prevention

So far we’re not feeling any younger, but we can safely say the BrewKup coffee produced was quite good. So far they have 3 different options:

  • Black Gold
  • Chocolate Almond
  • Toasted Hazelnut

Thanks again for GanoD Coffee Tea for sending them. The GanoD Coffee Tea BrewKups will work in Keurig K-Cup Brewers but not Keurig 2.0.

Nespresso Variations 2014 Thoughts and Impressions

Nespresso variations 2014 2

We had high hopes and dreams for the Nespresso Variations 2014 flavors. It seems like most things that come to pass the 2014 Nespresso variations are a bit of a mixed bag. Have you tried them? What do you think of them?

From SH:

  • Apple Crumble = Meh... doesn't smell like apple, barely tastes like apple. Major disappointment. Why is it the unlikeliest of flavors are always the ones that fail to deliver? Barely smells or tastes anything apple.
  • Chocolate Mint = As expected, best of the bunch. It has a choco-mint aroma and choco-mint taste. This is the one of the bunch that MOST matches its description. Not sure why, but Nespresso seem to excel at making chocolate-flavored coffees.  
  • Hazelnut Cookie = I only ordered 1 sleeve, just to see what it'd be like. Surprise, surprise, it's identical to the past 3 or 4 hazelnut flavored Variations releases over the past several years. Same old chemical hazelnut flavor. 

So there ya have it... I didn't try any of these with cream yet, so who knows if that'll help, but I'm again left disappointed.

Bodum Bistro Double-Wall Insulated Glass Espresso Mugs

Bodum double wall Espresso mugs

We drink out of these Bodum Bistro Double-Wall Insulated Glass Espresso Mugs daily, and love seeing the crema atop our yummy espresso each morning. This set of 2 double-wall glass espresso shot mugs with 4.7-ounce capacities, is made from mouth-blown, lab-quality borosilicate-glass construction. They are pretty durable and heat resistant, and the 2-layer design creates dramatic optical illusions and prevents condensation on the outside of the mug.

Safe for dishwasher and microwave use, but not safe for use with metal utensils. We recommend using a plastic spoon if you want to not break these mugs when you are adding a little sugar or creme.

GMCR Wellness Collection Coffee K-Cups Review

Wellness kcups gmcr 2014

A few years ago, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) decided to release a new line-up of products which they dubbed their Wellness Collection. The collection was made up of coffees, teas and Brew Over Ice drinks which had vitamins added in. We already reviewed the 2 Vitamin Burst K-Cup flavors and unfortunately, the 2 Celestial Seasonings teas which were part of the collection have now been discontinued. The 2 coffees are still being sold and have even been made Keurig 2.0-compatible, but we never really got a chance to review them until now. As a result, today we're checking out GMCR's Focus Blend K-Cups and their Defend Blend K-Cups.
