Coffee Review: Chelsea Nespresso Compatible Capsules

Posted on Thu, Aug 14, 2014

I am so excited to see the growing selection of choices for Nespresso drinkers including our very one product line by Hiline coffee.  Before the addition of these Nespresso compatible coffee capsules ordering your beloved Nespresso coffee was difficult, intimidating and quite frankly expensive.  I have actually owned the Pixie machine for quite sometime but, rarely used it...simply because the espresso was not easily accessible, until now.  Now it is an...shall we say...addiction, obsession...both? I must admit that having both the Keurig and Nepresso in my kitchen has me basically spoiled rotten and happy as a lark. 

I am so incredibly thrilled to have the opportunity to review all of the roasts available starting with Chelsea

Roaster Profile ~ Hiline Coffee

Posted on Thu, Aug 07, 2014

As you read in my recipe for Dirty Chai this week, I am a dirty cheater.  Yep, I have been stepping out on my Keurig every. single. day.  Hiline coffee made me do it. 

Hiline is an artsy start up company in New York City.  A young group of entrepreneurs, Harvard Business School graduates and coffee lovers banded together to solve the age old issue that all Nespresso users face...where to buy the capsules. Nespresso capsules are quite elusive, they can be difficult to find and once you do find them they are intimidating to select. 

This very dilemma led Gene Kakaulin (Hiline CEO) to the idea of creating a Nespresso alternative.  Gene has a thriving career as busy Wall Street executive but, what his constituents might not know about him is he is also a certified barista with a true passion for specialty coffee. Gene gathered a few friends and investors and viola...Hiline was born.

Keurig K-cup Recipe ~ Dirty Chai

Posted on Tue, Aug 05, 2014

I have to come clean, I have been cheating.  Everyday.  In my own home.

Don't worry husband, you are my one and only.  It is my Keurig that I have betrayed. 

I could't help it, I was feeling unfulfilled in my relationship.  Don't get me wrong, my brewer is still my true love but, you can love two at once and I have fallen head over heels for Nespresso. 

The one thing that Keurig lacks is the ability to brew a high quality espresso, and man oh man do I love me a good espresso. I now have a beautiful red Nespresso brewer sitting on my counter to fill that void.  She definitely does not get used as often as Keurig but, when the urge strikes to sip on a rich espresso, Nespresso is to whom I turn.  

The two quite frankly are the perfect combination in any coffee brewing station. Having the both units has really expanded my choices and taken my coffee options to new heights. Including this weeks recipe...

Cooking With K-cups ~ Single Serve Monkey Bread

Posted on Sun, Aug 03, 2014

One of my favorite traditions from childhood is making Monkey Bread with my life long girlfriends.  It was an easy recipe that apparently our parents, foolish as it may be, trusted us to make on our own.  Thirty (oh my) years later, I am still making it every Christmas morning for my daughter and from time to time my friends and I indulge ourselves in a walk down memory lane. 

Monkey Bread is beyond delicious but, can be a bit messy to eat.  Recently I had a major aha moment and realized, I can create single servings in mason jars to easily enjoy with a fork- no fuss, no mess, less clean up.  It is a win

Help, There are Coffee Grinds in My Mug!

Posted on Thu, Jul 31, 2014

It always makes for a bad day when you reach for your favorite K-cup coffee, brew it up in your Keurig with immense anticipation, take the first heavenly sip and...instead of pure bliss, you taste bitter solids on your tongue. Yep we have all been there once, or twice it is a classic case of coffee grinds in the mug. 

Generally, when brewing with a Keurig this is a caused by grinds or tea clogging the exit needle.  This blocks the water from clearing the area after each brew.  This situation occurs more often with teas, Cafe Escapes and when using the My Kcup but, can happen on occasion with a good old fashioned K-cup.

Luckily, this is a very easy situation to rectify.

Keurig K-cup Review ~ Citrus Splash Iced Tea

Posted on Thu, Jul 24, 2014

I have a confession, my Citrus Splash iced tea Keurig K-cups have been sitting in my cupboard for a very long time as in I may have possibly purchased them last summer. They simply did not call out to me, I don't know why but, I have avoided them until this very 90 degree day.  

Citrus Splash is brought to us by one of the oldest tea companies around - Twinings.  I do very much enjoy Twinings iced K-cups because they are unsweetened and all natural. They contain nothing other than high quality tea and usually a bit of fruit flavor to add a touch of flavor.  My favorites are Mixed Berries and Pomegranate Raspberry
