When you think of coffee, you usually associate it with something that keeps you awake, right? What if we were to tell you that there’s coffee which can put you to sleep? Before you think we’ve finally gone off the deep end, hear us out. We recently found out about a new startup company named Counting Sheep Coffee. They’re based out of Vancouver BC in Canada and they’ve created the world’s first sleep aid coffee. You’re familiar with the dozens of sleep aid teas on the market and there’s even Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Herbal Tea K-Cups & Vue Packs which have been out for years. We’ve never seen (until now) a coffee which supposedly does the same trick. The company recently gained fame when they appeared on Dragon’s Den* (the Canadian predecessor to ABC’s Shark Tank). We were a bit surprised to learn that the deal didn’t close* after the show aired, but it doesn’t seem to have hindered sales since our local Bed Bath & Beyond was almost sold-out when we visited.

Don’t you just love waking up to the fresh smell of a cup of coffee in the morning? Of course you love waking up to a fresh cup of coffee so Nescafe has made the Nescafé Alarm Cap.
The Nescafe Alarm cap is a ‘soft and natural awakening’ followed by ‘open the cap to enjoy the delicious aroma of NESCAFÉ’. The Alarm Cap is a 3D-printed combination container lid and alarm clock, assembled in California and run on a custom Arduino-based platform.
You attach it to your Nescafé bottle, and the alarm clock will gently wake you up with sounds. Unfortunately, the Nescafé Alarm Caps are very limited, and only 200 press kits are available. We’ll let you know if they plan on making this a production product.

We really love single serve coffee so, when we found out Nespresso was jumping into the dual coffee and espresso wagon we we’re beyond excited. Sure we love a cup of espresso, but we often like a shot of espresso in our single serve cup of coffee. The Nespresso VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker is the first Nespresso machine that makes a great cup of coffee or espresso. Each capsule is perfectly measured so that you get a uniformed brew each and every time, and when you put an espresso capsule in the Vertuo it will make espresso. If you use a larger coffee capsule it will make a larger cup of coffee. Continue reading: "Nespresso VertuoLine Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker Review"

There’s a lot of waste in single serve coffee, and we all know it. There’s a ton of trash and other waste being produced from the industry, and there’s only a few more eco-friendly options within the single serve coffee product offerings. Sure some of the K-Cups from non-licensed coffee roasters can be recycled, but it’s simply not enough.
The East Bay Express has a rather extensive article on the Dark Side of Single Serve Coffee, and many of the points about the waste within the single serve coffee category is hard to refute. So where does all this waste come from? 12 percent of US households now have a single-cup brewer, and for example Peet’s coffee just started making K-Cups. With just one roaster added like Peets it equals hundreds of millions of pounds of unrecyclable trash for the nation's landfills each year.
So what do we do? One thing we can do is use more reusable filters with our single serve coffee brewers. Another option is to try and only buy K-cups that are recyclable or biodegradable, or compostable.
What we really want is recyclable K-Cups from Green Mountain, and maybe with Keurig 2.0 and new offerings in the future this will happen and the waste will stop.
