Bodum’s New Kenya 34-Ounce Coffee Press

Bodum Kenya Coffee PressJust take a look at the Bodum New Kenya 34-Ounce Coffee Press and tell me that this isn’t a stylish, modern looking press.

Bodum  are renownned for their coffee presses  and using a press is one of the simplest ways to make yourself a flavorsome cup of coffee.  Mind you at 34 ounces, the Kenya coffee press will make enough coffee for 3-4 people.

Making coffee is just so easy, all you need to do is pop in some coarse ground coffee and add approximately one 7 gram scoop to every 4 ozs of water.

Next, you simply fill the beaker  to about an inch from the top, with hot water making sure that the water is just off the boil.

Then mix the coffee grounds into the water by stirring  it with a plastic or wooden utensil making sure it mixes thoroughly.

Close the  safety lid and leave your coffee to brew for approx 4 mins, then press. Open the safety lid and serve.

The Kenya Coffee Press from Bodum has a durable, heat-resistant glass beaker which is partially surrounded by a modern looking black plastic frame which has round cut outs on the sides and covers the bottom so that you can safely use it directly on the table top without having to put down a trivet or coaster.

And because it has a 36 part stainless steel filter system built into the press you don’t require any additional filters, so ithe whole thing is easy to clean up with a minimum of fuss.  All you need to so is scoop out the grounds with a rubber spatula, and rinse the beaker and filter. The parts are all dishwasher safe.

The  coffee press has a stay cool handle  built right into the sturdy New Kenya frame.

The New Kenya is also available in 3, 4, and 6 cup sizes.

One thing that consumers did comment about was that this coffee press has a plastic nut to hold all the filter pieces together and they felt that a metal nut would have served better and be less likely to break.

Review: Keurig 27-Cup Capacity K-Cup Spinning Carousel

Keurig K-cup CarouselThe Keurig 27 Cup Capacity K-Cup Spinning Carousel allows you to bring the feel of a coffee shop into your house. One of the reasons people often go to coffee shops is to have variety in the drinks they buy. But consider how much money you could save if you just offered yourself the same kind of variety at home by having a carousel filled with drink options.

While many people have more than one kind of coffee at home, there is a lot of hassle usually involved with mixing it up.  You generally have to dig through a stack of boxes to find the one you want, move all the boxes out of and then back into their storage space. This can leave you just grabbing for the top box, to avoid the fuss, until it’s empty and then moving on to the next.  So much for variety.

But Keurig K cup spinning  carousel solves that problem. It holds up to 27  K-Cups, letting you see all the options you have as soon as you walk into the kitchen. Just fill it up once a week (or more if you go through a lot of coffee) and every day as you come in, the coffee you fancy at that moment will be within reach and ready to go.

What We Like

If you often entertain and offer guests a coffee after dinner or in the afternoon, this makes it much easier to let them choose and make their own coffee.

If you like variety in your morning coffee, this is a great way to put all of that variety in front of you every day and choose the flavor that fits.

For the office, this will allow everyone to have something they like within reach.

It is much more attractive than having a ripped open box that everyone pulls their K-cups from.

What We Don’t Like

The carousel occasionally does not spin as smoothly as it should and sometimes catches, especially when full.

REVIEW: Keurig B60 Special Edition Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System

Keurig B60 Coffee MakerWho doesn’t like a good morning cup of latte? But do you need a whole pot? If you’re the only coffee drinker in the house, you may face this issue daily. Why brew a whole pot when you are only going to drink one or two cups.

Now you don’t have to. The Keurig B60 Special Edition Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System will brew an individual cup of coffee each time you want one.

The Keurig is a compact coffee machine that takes up little counter space, but can quickly create coffee to fill your cup in three sizes – 5.25 ounce, 7.25 ounce and 9.25 ounce.

It is also small enough that you can pack it along on a trip if you want to make sure you have coffee no matter wherever you go.

What We Like

  • Clean up was a cinch. Thanks to the little K-cups, there was no mess.
  • When it is time to do a more complete cleaning, the water tank at the back of the machine snaps out to make it easier to wash.
  • It is nice to always have a fresh cup of coffee. Since this makes one cup at a time, each cup is as fresh as the last.
  • It’s very user friendly and quick and easy to learn to use.

What We Don’t Like

  • This machine is one of the more noisy ones out there, especially when filling with water to make the next cup of coffee.
  • Perhaps it’s the pods, but it seems most cups of coffee from this machine come out very weak.
  • This machine is made for standard coffee mugs. If you have a specialty mug that is a bit larger than the average, it may not fit under the spout.
  • It only works with proprietary coffee pods.
