NY indie coffee shops probably driving customers to Starbucks

In what I think is a bad move by these independent coffee shops in NYC, they’re shooing their laptop-wielding customers who camp out and buy very little in the way of coffee.

Enter Starbucks, who saw an opening and jumped into the conversation saying that their customers can stay as long as they want. See what just happened there? We blogged about it too, and now Starbucks has just a little more publicity.

So now you know where to get that caffeine hit and hang out with your ‘puter.

Coffee Mug changes color based on temperature

Hot Cold Mug

This is a very creative product that would make the perfect gift for any one. It looks like an ordinary mug with nothing special about it except that it changes colors depending on the temperature of the liquids in it. It uses heat sensitive materials so that the mug will change colors when introduced to heat from liquids. The black color is cold, and the white stands for the hot. The lettering on the mug will also change from cold to hot. This is a great way to know if your coffee is hot or if you should go and refill your cup. No more drinking lukewarm coffee with this mug. This gizmo will let you know when it is time for another coffee break!

The Javabot – Monster machine makes coffee

No, it’s not an android-like robot, but rather a big automated machine that sits next to a wall with its 13 cylindrical bins of roasted and raw beans. Six bins hold beans just before roasting.

The tubes are hooked up via a pneumatic mechanism. When someone orders a cup of joe, the Javabot kicks into action sucking enough beans over to the roaster, then the grinder and then into the brewing machine.

You can get a look at (and some coffee from) the Javabot at the Roasting Plant coffee store in New York City.

Starbucks Coffee Coming to Tassimo Single Serve Coffee System

Starbucks Coffee Coming to Tassimo Single Serve Coffee System I never thought I would acquire the addiction to Starbucks that I saw so many friends and even my brother fall prey to, but at times I find I must go to Starbucks and snag a Grande Non-fat White Chocolate Mocha Light-Whip and suck it down. I use to only drink coffee during the winter and when buying cars but now find a cup of coffee in the middle of a heat wave in Hot’lanta soothing.

Anyway, our friends over at Blogpire sent us a tip that Starbucks has finally entered into the single serve coffee market and will be providing four new blends of coffee in December. Also part of the announcement Tasssimo/Kraft is dumping braun and going with Bosch to make a new Tassimo Hot Beverage System in June of 2008.
