brazen-plus-coffeemaker-13

It seems that everybody I know has a single-cup coffeemaker these days.  Some have espresso machines, some have coffee machines, but everybody seems to have gone the single cup route.  That's great when you only drink a cup or two a day, but it's not so great when you have guests over.  You'll be standing [...]

Vector cupholder review

Vector - 05

Stylish, clever and practical. If a gadget covers those three adjectives, it’s got a chance for success. And those are the words that first come to mind for the Vector cupholder that I was fortunate to get my hands on. If you want to reduce your worry level about spilling a drink on your keyboard [...]

You've probably seen pictures of coffees with the beautiful decorations on top made from the foamed milk, haven't you?  You don't get those at just any coffee shop, and if you're like me, you won't be able to make anything like that at home, either.  With the CinniBird Spice Pen, even I might be able [...]

Keurig coffee brewing systems have been around for a while now.  There have been a lot of models over the years, but they remained pretty much the same.  They still only brewed a single cup at a time.  They all used the little pre-filled K-Cups available in a wide variety of flavors and brands.  If [...]

chillsner

Is there anything worse than drinking a beverage that's less than frosty and tasty?  I think not, and the creators of the Chillsner agree, too.  The Chillsner's stainless-steel frame is filled with a proprietary non-toxic thermal gel; you keep it in the freezer until you need it.  When you're ready for a beer, just insert [...]

bottle-caps

Once you've opened those old-fashioned soda bottles or a beer bottle, there's not usually a good way to keep a cover on your drink while you're finishing it.  These Linden Sweden Bottle Caps will snap on the open bottle and keep the fizz in.  They're also a great way to keep insects out of the drink at [...]

drink-ink-glass-identifiers

I've seen various "charms" that help you keep up with which glass belongs to whom at parties, but most of them only work with stemmed glasses.  What if you aren't having wine?  How do you identify your soda glass or beer stein or your coffee cup?  It won't be a problem with the Drink Ink [...]
