Trader Joe's Single Serve Coffee Cups

Trader joes k cups

Long time reader SC has sent in word that Trader Joe’s has single cups that will work in any K-Cup Brewer.

From SC: Yesterday, visiting the Trader Joe's store in Hyannis, MA  I came across 'Trader Joe's single serve coffee cups' on their new product shelves. The box is marked medium roast 100% arabica coffee. A box of 7 individually foil wrapped units was $ 2.99. The unit itself is a thin, see through plastic film topped, plastic open framed basket lined with filter material. I have not yet tried the coffee but upon opening the foil wrapper I was rewarded with a nice, bright coffee aroma which got my mouth watering.

SC later tried the medium roast coffee and was not that impressed. Have you tried the Trader Joe’s single cups? What do you think?

Starbucks Is Coming to a Train Near You

Starbucks rail 5

Looking for more ways to take over the entire coffee market, Starbucks and a swiss based company have created the first Starbucks store on a train. The first official voyage for the Starbucks train took place on the train line running from Geneva Airport to St.Gallen in Switzerland on November 21 at 06:36am.

  • The exterior of the sleek red and white car is branded with Starbucks siren logo on both sides including ‘Starbucks’ text. 
  • Inside, the experience on the car is split between two levels. The two levels provide seating for a total of 50 people.
  • On the entry level, the baristas will serve passengers from behind a curved wooden bar that also features a small pastry case. 

It’s quite a feat to create the same exact experience of Starbucks on a train, but we think the Swiss are up to the challenge. It would be amazing to have such cars on our commuter trains stateside, and maybe if enough US travelers experience something unique when in Europe some of these ideas may come to us over time.

Death Cups by Death Wish Coffee Review

Death wish kcups

After our trusted correspondent AB from Maine decided on buying some Death Wish Coffee, the Single Serve Coffee staff pleaded with him for a review of Death Cups by Death Wish Coffee - The World's Strongest Single Serve Coffee Capsules. If you're unfamiliar with Death Wish Coffee - it packs 20% more caffeine per cup. We think you’ll enjoy the results of his deadly pursuit of caffeine nirvana.

Last week for cyber Monday Death Wish coffee was running a deal free shipping and a free hat. Never being one to pass up a deal I decided it was time to try this coffee. Upon receiving my shipment, minus the hat, (GRRRRRR) I decided to try my first review for this website.

Gevalia Pumpkin Spice Latte T-Discs Review


Gevalia PSL Packaging

We realize we’re a bit late to the party with this review, but what the heck… as we always say: better late than never, right? Today we check out one of our favorite new Tassimo flavors this past Fall 2013, Gevalia Pumpkin Spice Latte T-Discs.

As any Starbucks fan knows, there’s 3 letters that get them excited each October… PSL. Traditionally served between October 1st & Thanksgiving (the American version, for our readers up North), PSL or Pumpkin Spice Latte is a fan favorite which has been growing in popularity & demand each year. We knew we’d definitely see it crop up at Starbucks locations, but we were shocked when we got a Tassimo newsletter that had it featured as their next new flavor. So just how would this T-Disc version stack up to the real deal you’d get at a Starbucks? After all, Kraft did have a rather messy split with Starbucks back in the day when they ceased making Starbucks T-Discs, so we were curious to see the results.

Brown Gold 100% Brazilian Real Cups Review


100brazillian brown gold real cups

We finish off our Brown Gold Real Cup review series today by checking out the 5th & final flavor in their line-up that is compatible with all K-Cup Brewers… Brown Gold 100% Brazilian Real Cups. Much like their 100% Costa Rican & 100% Peruvian coffees, we can’t say we’ve ever had a 100% Brazilian coffee before and just the name alone would be enough to make anyone snicker or giggle given what it’s normally associated with, but all joking aside, we can’t recall having coffee that even used Brazilian coffee beans in a blend before, so this should be interesting (or so we hope).

Brewing these Real Cups resulted in a mild woodsy aroma blended with subtle notes of cocoa and very faint smoky hints in the background. There was also something else we couldn’t quite place which gave a bit of an odd musty scent off the top of the nose. Overall, things were a lot more muted than what we were expecting for Brown Gold’s self-proclaimedstrongest flavor.

Avoid Coffee Before Job Interviews

Ku xlarge

Over at Lifehacker they’ve got a pretty cool article on how to Avoid Caffeine Before Interviews for Better Composure. This for us is a no brainer. If you don’t want to be jittery, sweating, and a general mess avoiding stimulants before anything stressful is probably a  great idea. Also the big one - sweaty palms.

"Avoid drinking caffeine before an interview to help prevent the 'sweaty palm syndrome'. Caffeine is anxiety inducing and can make you seem too chatty. Lay off the coffee before you head in for an interview."

However if you’re going for a public relations job and want to seem chatty - then maybe getting hopped upon caffeine is a great idea. Probably not. Have you ever had too much caffeine and it caused you to be too stressed out or sweaty in a situation? We can remember several coffee tastings where we felt a bit overwhelmed and never really thought how much the caffeine was the culprit.

Before interviews it’s best to be well rested, and have a full belly of things non-caffeinated. We also recommend feeling prepared and ready for the interview by researching the person or company you’re talking with and make sure and do a little rehearsal about some topics that might come up. Be prepared and then after you’re done get a nice cup of coffee post interview to sit back and reflect with on how you might get that new job.

Panera to Offer K-Cups

Panera single serve

Panera Bread Co. is extending its branded retail grocery products to include single-serve brewing cups, or K-Cups. Panera will sell K-Cups in four varieties: dark roast, light roast, Colombia and Hazelnut Crème. The suggested retail price for a 12-pack of cups is $8.99 and they will be sold at such supermarkets as Supervalue, Hy-Vee and Winn-Dixie, and are produced by Distant Lands Coffee, which has roasting plants in Seattle and Tyler, Texas.

Panera Bread Co. has 1,736 bakery-cafés in 45 states and Canada under the Panera Bread, Saint Louis Bread Co. and Paradise Bakery & Café brands. We do find it interesting they don’t seem to be saying they’ll sell them at their retail locations.

We’ll try and get some of these as soon as they are available to review, and if you see some pick them up and send them our way.
