What do you get when you combine freshly roasted coffee beans grown worldwide on environmentally and socially responsible farms with a veteran-owned coffee company run by a dedicated team of firefighters, first responders, and coffee connoisseurs? You get Fire Department Coffee, a company that donates 10% of Its net proceeds to support ill and injured first responders; that’s what we’ll be taking a look at today.
At my age—and no, I am absolutely not going to tell you how friggin’ old I am—acidic stomach issues are definitely something I have to keep in mind. But even if you’re a youngun’ like my daughter and you drink enough coffee, sometimes the very acidity of the brew can catch up with you sometimes. That’s what Trücup low-acid coffee wants to help alleviate.
If you’re looking for a professional-level espresso drink at home without hiring a barista, the Jura ENA 8 is the next best thing. This automatic espresso machine grinds coffee beans fresh for each drink, perfectly steams and froths milk, and makes a heck of a cappuccino. Starting at $1,899, the Ena 8 is available in three accent colors.
The Ninja Kitchen coffee makers keep getting better and better. This is our second Ninja coffee review; the first was the Ninja Coffee Bar back in 2018. Ninja has made improvements over the years, including adding a tea brewing option with a more elegant design and interface, while maintaining the features that made it shine.
Listen, we all have better things to do than stressing over making the perfect espresso, right? For those who love espresso but don’t want to spend hours fidgeting with difficult to use equipment to end up with a mediocre espresso drink, the Philips 3200 LatteGo is for you. The Philips 3200 LatteGo retails for $799 and makes a great cappuccino.
Everyone likes the convenience and choice offered by using a single-serve coffee maker, right? But one of the biggest problems is that single-serve coffee makers produce unrecyclable waste. Some coffee pod makers offer to recycle used pods, but you have to return those used pods to them. Woken Coffee makes user compostable pods that reduce waste with minimal effort.
If you are a huge coffee drinker who is looking for a more cost-effective method for making your iced coffees in the morning, the Cold Brew Coffee Maker by Gourmia may be just the thing you need.
In July, our lives changed forever. We welcomed a beautiful baby boy into our family, but we lost our sleep and our clean, spotless floors. Luckily, SharkNinja’s newest products had us covered. Their sleek and functional Ninja Coffee Bar provided the energy we desperately needed while the Shark IONFlex 2X DuoClean vacuum effortlessly restored order in the house.
With temperatures in the teens, a delicious, hot cup of coffee is a “must.” We usually grab the pre-ground coffee, put it into a drip coffee maker, add water, and go. But while drip coffee makers are convenient, if you want a rich, full-bodied coffee it takes a bit more effort. Bialetti offers some great products coffee-lovers will love.
Gourmia is one of the industry leaders in home appliances, more specifically in the kitchen. We’ve previously reviewed a few of their products, but one we had anticipated reviewing for some time, the GCM5000 Coffee and Espresso Maker.
I like drinking coffee, but I don’t like stale coffee breath or feeling like I need to brush my teeth after every cup. After seeing GO CUBES at a recent event, I was intrigued. The premise is that there are two cups of coffee in each pack of four; two gummy cubes equals one cup.
If you’re a coffee drinker like myself, you know the struggle of waking up in the morning, creating your own brew, and even worse, finding that mug of cup that will keep that House Blend warm as you go on your daily commute. Well over the course of CES, as well as a few weeks prior to that, I had the pleasure of reviewing the HeyJoe Coffee Mug which solves a lot of problems we all have throughout the morning. Originally a Kickstarter that has since been in full production, the HeyJoe Coffee Mug is the first coffee mug to…
Last year Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle Coffee created their first travel kit, which released just in time for the holidays. This year they’ve got an even bigger and better holiday collaboration brewing, and if you are stumped about what to give your favorite serious coffee drinker (even if it’s you), then The Sabbatical should be a winner!
Right before I left for a few weeks of travel I received my next Starbucks Bloggers Box. This time it was filled with some tasty Starbucks summer treats. It also included an awesome picnic basket and patterned picnic throw but the real stars of the show were the various coffees. Lets run down what was in the box.
My second Starbucks Blogger Box arrived some weeks ago and it was a delightful package of Keurig K-Cups and coffee accessories. This time, however, Starbucks filled the box with their rare Starbucks Single Origin coffees from across the globe. They are delicious and, thanks to a coupon at the end of this post, you can save some money when you try them yourself! GUATEMALA LAGUNA DE AYARZA The first coffee I tried was their Guatemala Laguna de Ayarza. It has a rich flavor and offers “balance with lively flavor notes.” As the company explains “This smooth, medium-bodied coffee thrives…
When I moved into my new place there were only a few things I wanted other than my clothes and my tech. At the top of that list? My Keurig machine. I mean, what good is having a new apartment if you can’t have a great cup of coffee ready and waiting in seconds. Thankfully, as member of the Starbucks Blogger Program I was send a terrific variety of coffees. YUM!!
Last year I wrote about Keurig’s new version 2.0 K-cup brewer, and how they were including digital rights management like features into it that would prevent owners from using any other K-cup except “approved” ones. This has been worked around by many, but this free Freedom Clip from Roger’s Coffee has managed to make it easy to defeat this technology.
Are you someone who takes your morning coffee very seriously? Do you turn up your nose at Starbucks and other national chains usually found in hotel lobbies, considering them to be wannabe posers? Then you might be the connoisseur that Timbuk 2 had in mind when they collaborates with Blue Bottle to make this $179 travel kit.
Let me preface this with a well-known fact: I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Keurig. With that said, my current Keurig could be my last one, since Green Mountain is souring my morning cup with a little Digital Rights Management in their Keurig 2.0 machine coming this fall. This idea is so bad that I will NOT be buying it.
I debated and debated (and debated!) about whether or not I should back the “World’s first roast-grind-brew coffee machine” by Bonavarde Coffee Changers. In the end, even though it seemed unlikely and possibly too good to be true, and even though there were plenty of good reasons not to,”but what if it works?” won out, and I backed. Bonaverde more than met their initial goal of $135,000; they smashed it with over $681K in backing money, and they added several stretch goals along the way. This may turn out to be a very expensive piece of junk, or it might…
The temperature may be in the 80s in New Jersey today but there is no doubt fall is here. The temperature is sure to plummet and, when it does, a mug of Starbuck’s new Caramel or Vanilla K-Cup coffee will be just the thing. I’ve tried both and all I can say is… yum!
