REVIEW: Wolfgang Puck Sumatra Kopi Raya Coffee K Cups


Coffeewiz was fortunate to be one of the FIRST online single serve coffee retailers with Wolfgang Puck Sumatra Kopi Raya Coffee K Cups. That means they were one of the first to sample the product and share feedback witn you!

Wolfgang Puck Sumatra Kopi Raya Coffee K Cups is an extra bold dark roast.

This coffee was taste tested first as a hot cup. The flavor was earthy, spicy and bold. The coffee was brewer in a Keurig brewer on the 8 oz setting. If you enjoy a dark roast, and more strong flavor, you will be pleased with Wolfgang Puck Sumatra Kopi Raya Keurig K-Cups.

The next taste test of Wolfgang Puck Sumatra Kopi Raya Coffee K Cups was as an iced coffee brew. Brewed on the larger 8 oz setting, in a mug, it was then poured over a full large glass filled with ice. The brew held up well to ice with its bold rich coffee flavor. There was a pleasantly strong coffee that filled the cup, and as it melted, it still maintained its rich roasted flavor.

So if you love a dark roast, we know you'll enjoy Wolfgang Puck Sumatra Kopi Raya Coffee K Cups. It's definitely a unique K Cup offering at Coffeewiz.com.

Where Did Coffee Originate?


The earliest historic records of coffee were between 575 and 850 A.D.

Legend has it that a young Ethiopian goat herder, Kaldi, saw his goats jumping around and acting frisky after eating some red berries from a bush.

Kaldi tried some of the berries himself. He amazingly felt awakened and began to dance around with his goats.

So coffee was discovered in Ethiopia...by a goat!

Rose Oolong Tea - A Great Review


Check out the latest rave review on one of our customers' favorite teas in our loose tea product line:

Kings Rose Oolong Tea

Here is an excerpt from Chelsy's review at Teaviews.com (which we are very thankful for):


"With whole miniature rose buds and jade coloured Oolong leaves, how could I possibly resist? Essentially, I am a sucker for rose, which I did not truly understand until date night rolled around and we tried some rose gelato. That gelato reminded me of this tea in wide ways, and good news is that I love them both.


The amber liquor of the brew is has a fantasy appeal, reminding me of a smooth and hintingly creamy drink with a viscosity of pure water. A nutty aroma given off by the leaves post-steep is darling, and well fitting to the cup. There's also a warm, fresh cut garden aroma that glides up with the steamy evaporation. The finish and aftertaste is sweet and simple rose. Obviously, if rose is not something the drinker enjoys, they will dislike this tea.


On the contrary, I found this gem wonderfully enjoyable and uplifting..."

RECIPE: White Chocolate Chai Tea Spiced S'mores


Yum! Vickie tested this recipe over the weekend, and brought in a batch for Coffeewiz staff to sample. It passed the "yummy" test, so here it is for you to enjoy:

White Chocolate Chai Tea Spiced S'mores

Cook Time:10 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 24 s'mores

Ingredients
8 ounces white baking chocolate, finely chopped
3/4 cup cream
1 TBSP Tavalon Kama Chai Sutra loose tea
16 honey graham cracker squares (2 1/2-inch squares)
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows, or 24 large marshmallows

Directions
Put chopped white chocolate in heatproof bowl.

Put milk in a small saucepan and bring to simmer over medium heat. Add
loose chai tea, stir, remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes. Return the
chai tea-infused cream to medium heat until just simmering.

Pour the chai tea-infused cream through a fine mesh strainer set over the bowl of chocolate. Shake the bowl to evenly distribute the cream and let stand 5 minutes to melt the chocolate.

Stir until very smooth and let the chocolate cool to room temperature. Discard the loose tea
leaves.

To make the s'mores in the oven, set an oven rack 6 to 8 inches from the broiler and preheat.

Put 8 graham cracker squares on a baking sheet and spread 1/2 teaspoon of the cooled chocolate over the entire surface of each square.

Arrange mini marshmallows (or place 1 whole marshmallow) on each chocolate covered graham, being sure to cover the cracker completely.

Spread about 1/2 teaspoon of the chocolate on each remaining graham
crackers and set them aside.

Transfer the pan to the oven and toast the marshmallows under the broiler until
deep golden brown, about 30 seconds. Keep an eye on the marshmallows - they toast very quickly!

Remove the chai tea s'mores from the oven and top with the chocolate covered grahams,
chocolate side down. Press lightly to spread the chocolate to the edges.

Let the s'mores cool for 1 to 2 minutes before munching away!

Note: You can store the unused white chocolate chai tea sauce in an airtight container
in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can melt and pour over ice cream
or stirred into hot milk for chai-tea spiced hot chocolate!

Let us know how you like this recipe - we know you'll love Tavalon Kama Chai Sutra. It has become a fast favorite here at Coffeewiz! ~Vickie

The contest ran for a limited time from February 21, 2010 through March 21st, 2010. The two winners each receive a $100 Coffeewiz gift certificate.

The Facebook contest winner in the video category is Jennifer Staresina of Indiana, who entered a video of her toddler, Lucy, demonstrating the ease of making a single serve coffee. In the video, Lucy pushes two stools up to the kitchen counter to reach the single serve brewer, and then presses a button to brew a cup of coffee for her mother.

The photo contest winner is Melissa Powers of California, who entered a photo of the K-cup cabinet her husband built to contain her K-cups at her single serve brewing station. There is a coffee cake in front of the single serve brewer where Powers made the Dark Magic Coffee that she substituted for water in the recipe. By the time she returns to the kitchen, a slice of cake has already been taken by a family member. When Powers was announced as the photo contest entry, she glowingly states, “Since the economy crashed, Coffee has become a bit of a luxury. This is truly a gift and I never expected to win. I am unbelievably excited. Maybe I’ll try something new.”

Coffeewiz Announces Addition of Tavalon Loose Leaf Tea To Product Line


We are excited to carry the Tavalon Loose Leaf Tea for our customers.

Here is our latest press release on the topic:

Coffeewiz Introduces New Line of Gourmet Tavalon Loose Leaf Tea to E-Commerce Website, Offers Customers New Multiple Health Benefits

Coffeewiz.com, a leading e-commerce retailer of single serve coffee and loose leaf tea, announced today the addition of the Tavalon Loose Leaf Tea product line to their current selection of gourmet loose leaf tea products.

“The decision to carry the Tavalon product line was easy,” says Jim Evans, Vice President of Coffeewiz.com. “I taste all of our tea products and from my first cup of this rich tea I knew I wanted to share this experience with our customers.”

Tavalon Tea has received much media attention over recent years. Most recently, it was featured on NBC News (December, 2009) in a segment on recommended culinary gifts for food lovers for the holidays.

Evans and Coffeewiz staff sampled different Tavalon varieties to see which products they felt would suit their customers best. It was unanimously decided that a wide variety of teas would be best suited. Coffeewiz will carry a Tavalon tea product in each anti-oxidant rich tea leaf variety, including black tea, green tea, white tea, and oolong tea. In addition, selections were chosen of rooibos and other herbal teas. The new Coffeewiz line of Tavalon Loose Leaf Tea varieties includes Earl Grey Reserve, NYC Breakfast, Kama Chai Sutra, Jasmine Dream, Summer Fruits, Lemongreen, Tropical Peony, Peachy Oolong, Serenity and Crimson Punch.

Tavalon presents a fresh, new, accessible face for tea while educating the general public about its many health benefits. The multiple health benefits of drinking tea, as concluded by numerous studies and reported by publications such as the Harvard Health Watch, include anti-cancer properties, increasing metabolism, fighting diabetes, boosting mental alertness and aiding the immune system.

“We are proud to announce our partnership with Coffeewiz.com,” says Tavalon Founder and CEO, John-Paul Lee. “Tea and coffee go hand-in-hand and we believe that there is a strong symbiotic relationship between the two businesses. We are looking forward to the new venture.”

The addition of the Tavalon loose leaf tea product line comes on the heels of the success of Coffeewiz’s introduction of the loose leaf tea infuser mug and loose leaf tea infuser teapot, developed as a single serve solution to brewing tea. “Coffeewiz Facebook Fans and our single serve coffee community is used to the touch of a button and thought that brewing loose leaf tea would be a hassle,” says Vickie Smith-Siculiano, Coffeewiz Social Media Coordinator. “We realized we needed to offer a single-serve solution to brewing an individual serving of tea so our community could take advantage of loose leaf tea’s many health benefits.”

Coffeewiz.com was founded by coffee lovers and specializes in single serve products, including Keurig, Tassimo, Senseo, Dolce Gusto, Coffee Pods, Lavazza and Gourmet imported Loose Leaf Tea. The privately held corporation is headquartered in Moonachie, NJ and can be found on the web at http://www.Coffeewiz.com.

VIDEO: How To Make Single Serve Loose Leaf Tea



For Tea Time Tuesday, we shot this new video for you single serve coffee fans...

If you are a K-Cup fan and have a Keurig brewer, it's very simple to make your own loose leaf tea brew. Coffeewiz has a delectable assortment variety of loose leaf tea and now wants to show you a very elegant simple solution for enjoying the experience of your own whole leaf tea personal brew.

This month, I have been sampling the loose leaf tea product line that Coffeewiz carries on their website. I tested the Coffeewiz Glass Tea Cup With Glass Strainer in the Keurig Home Brewer.

I brewed the Kings Earl Grey loose leaf tea in the glass tea cup, and pressed the large cup button. I am mainly avid coffee drinker, and a single serve fan, with both a Keurig and Tassimo brewer at home, but I like to keep an open mind and try something new - a little variety.

The Keurig dispensed the perfect amount for a single serve cup. Although the aroma of the fresh loose leaf brew was intoxicating, I closed the glass tea cup with the glass cover and let the brew steep for a minute, as I like my tea on the lighter side. But you can brew the tea to your personal taste - it's your choice.

I then took the glass tea strainer out of the glass and a perfect cup of loose leaf tea remained, with the leaves unfurled in the strainer. I saw lavender blossoms on top of the green tea leaves. While it was a beautiful sight, I prefer to keep my leaves separate from the tea I drink, so the strainer is a nice solution. The strainer has tiny glass slits that allow the water to pass, but keep the leaves behind in the neat little strainer.

The Single Serve Glass Tea Cup Loose Leaf Tea Experiment was a success. Please share your thoughts and comments with us, as we plan to roll out a Coffeewiz sample pack that includes A Glass Tea Cup and 4 FREE loose leaf tea samples! What do you think?

UPDATE: Timothy's Discontinued K-Cups


Just an update from a recent memo we received from Timothy's Customer Service Department:

Timothy’s recently conducted a thorough review of their K-Cups product-line and after careful consideration, Decaffeinated French Vanilla, Decaffeinated Green Tea, and Emeril’s Organic French Quarter Roast will be discontinued.

Decaffeinated Green Tea and Emeril’s Organic French Quarter Roast K-Cups will be phased out over the next two months, with production ending by April.

Please note, however, that there is limited inventory of Timothy’s Decaffeinated French Vanilla K-Cups and these will be phased out, effective immediately.

Please refer to the below for the details regarding the discontinued products and recommended substitutions.

Discontinued Timothy's K-Cup:
Decaffeinated Timothy's French Vanilla

Recommended Substitution:
Timothy's Decaffeinated Noisette Hazelnut
A luscious combination of roasted hazelnut and French vanilla cream. Timothy’s best selling flavored coffee, without the caffeine.

Discontinued Timothy's K-Cup:
Decaffeinated Green Tea

Recommended Substitution:
Timothy's Decaffeinated English Breakfast Tea
The same great taste of Timothy’s English Breakfast tea, without the caffeine. Steeps to a full-bodied and rich tea.

Discontinued Timothy's K-Cup:
Emeril’s Organic French Quarter Roast

Recommended Substitution:
Emeril’s Big Easy Bold
This classic Parisian roast is a thick, hearty blend. Its deep, dark color and invigorating aroma will definitely kick it up a notch. Big Easy Bold uses a minimum of 50% Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee beans.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us on our website, live chat, or by phone. We hope this update keeps you well-informed!

VIDEO: How to Make a Tassimo Hazelnut Cappuccino



It's Friday! A great time to have a little fun now that the weekend's almost here! Why not brew a gourmet coffee drink?

The Tassimo Brewer is a great solution for making gourmet coffee drinks - especially cappuccinos and frothy brews.

We shot this video at Coffeewiz Headquarters in a Tassimo Commercial Brewer, but you can even do this on your home brewer.

Hazelnut Cappuccino

1 Gevalia Cappuccino Creamer (The Starbucks Cappuccino is excellent, too!)
1 Gevalia Espresso
1 Gevalia Hazelnut - a quick shot only!.

The Tassimo will brew this gourmet coffee drink as a 12 ounce drink, so make sure you choose a cup or glass large enough to hold the delectable brew!

This is the first of a series we want to feature on Fridays, so that we can share all these wonderful gourmet drink recipes with you, for not only Tassimo, but Keurig K-Cups, Dolce Gusto, Coffee Pods, Lavazza Blue and more.

Why should anyone be limited to just ONE single serve coffee and think that's all they can brew? Let's kick back on Fridays and have some gourmet coffee fun!

Please comment and share your thoughts with us - thanks!
