Code Puccino Sat, 01 Oct 2022 01:58:52 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Code Puccino 32 32 The ultra-fancy coffee machine that only some Starbucks stores have Thu, 22 Sep 2022 18:34:00 +0000

Wired illustrated how the Clover machine works in 2008, touting that the price at the time was $11,000. The machine prepares individual cups of coffee, each according to the beans used. The barista chooses the setting, places the freshly ground beans in a chamber, and uses a flat whisk to stir before a plunger presses the coffee into a cup, much like a French press.

In 2019, much to the dismay of coffee lovers, Starbucks considered eliminating its Reserve stores and with it, the Clover. Starbucks questioned whether the effort for a single cup of coffee was really worth the time, money, and effort — all to woo the hard-to-catch coffee expert. Clover lovers stepped out of the woodwork, declaring their love for Starbucks Reserve. Some stores actually removed the Clover, which upset many customers, as Total Retail pointed out.

And so, it was in early 2022 that Starbucks unveiled an all-new Clover to roll out to more Starbucks reserves — much to the delight of coffee connoisseurs everywhere, according to The Street. So if you find yourself on a stash in the near future, chasing your TikTok influencer dreams, be sure to check out the menu at Clover Roast Coffee.

Viral Starburst Margarita Hack Coffee Machine Thu, 15 Sep 2022 18:33:45 +0000

Starburst will not infuse significantly into your tequila.

The big assumption here is that there are people who actually want Starburst-infused tequila, but hey, there is a time and a place. If you love candy and love tequila, how could the two things be bad together, right? Bad. When the hot tequila passes over the Starbursts, very little of what’s delicious in the candy is captured in the liquid. My knowledge of physical science is insufficient to explain this, but tequila just picks up the color and weird chemical taste of the candy. Everything ostensibly “good” about Starburst is left in the filter. Which brings me to my next point.

Your coffee machine will clog.

While it’s not irreparable, your machine will clog soon enough in the process as the candy turns into a gooey slime. I had to pick up the filter and squeeze it to get all the liquid out. It’s not a “hack” if you have to do some extra work to get the desired result. That said, I did not permanently damage my coffee machine, only my dignity. To clean the machine I ran it once with plain water and after that the coffee it made didn’t taste like tequila or Starburst at all. Plus, using the carafe as a cocktail pitcher is a snap trick.

This drink is not “skinny”.

In fact, no drink is “skinny”. Not only is the branding of drinks a fatphobic moralization of physical pleasure, but this drink is literally made up of sugar and alcohol. The only way this drink will help you lose weight is by completely killing your appetite.

Pushing jalapeños into a toaster is (probably) a fire hazard.

There are certain lines that I will not cross. It seemed that testing the physical capacity of a toaster oven by inserting fruit into it was a great way to start a fire, so I used my air fryer instead. By the way, I now have a new favorite way to roast jalapeños.

This drink is disgusting.

This cannot be emphasized enough. If the drink was appealing, I might be able to forgive the aforementioned issues, but it’s not. In fact, I find it hard to express what is so bad about it. Usually, I can detect structural flaws in a drink quite easily. By tasting this drink, I lost my capacity for analytical thinking. All I could sense was my deep lizard brain ringing the alarm for me to pour every last drop of this drink down the drain.

Make this drink instead.

There’s a much easier way to fuse Starburst and tequila – just put them together in the same container overnight and call it a day. Once you have that you’re working with something that slightly resembles a liqueur rather than a spirit so if you want a quick drink all you have to do is add some acidity and you have yourself a balanced cocktail.

I composed this riff on Martinique’s national classic cocktail, the Ti’ Punch, which is akin to a citrusy Old Fashioned made with the island’s distinctive Rhum Agricole. (The Ti’ is the abbreviation of little, by the way.) The classic recipe is sweetened with a hint of cane syrup, but here it is not necessary since the infused tequila brings a lot of sugar. Sip it in your fire-free apartment while admiring your coffee maker still intact, knowing there’s always a better way.

CoffeeB’s single-serve coffee machine brews without capsules Tue, 13 Sep 2022 15:48:32 +0000

Keurig’s single-serve coffee makers and single-serve K-Cup pods have revolutionized coffee drinking at home (and at work), making the idea of ​​brewing a single cup of joe ubiquitous. But while Keurigs have always been praised for their convenience, they’ve also been criticized for being wasteful. It wasn’t until the end of 2020 that all K-Cups finally became 100% recyclable, and even then several steps are required for the consumer to properly dispose of beverage-making pods.

Now, a new Swiss company is looking to solve the inherent waste problem of single-serve coffee makers with a new system that does away with pods altogether. It’s called CoffeeB – a company in European supermarket chain Migros – and instead of plastic or aluminum pods, the brand uses pressed coffee balls.

The balls are produced by pressing finely ground coffee into a sphere, then coating it with a protective layer made from 100% vegetable raw materials, locking in its freshness and aroma. The resulting product is 100% compostable, with no packaging waste to worry about.


To brew one of these coffee balls, you can’t just throw them in your Keurig — you’ll need CoffeeB’s Globe coffee maker. The machine’s patented brewing system works by first wetting the ball to soften it, then puncturing and swelling it with water before finally extracting the coffee at 7-12 bar pressure. The coffee used by CoffeeB, it is worth mentioning, is also sustainable, with all current offerings carrying Rainforest Alliance certification, the Fairtrade label or the EU organic label.

According to CoffeeB, 70% of coffee capsules and pods are thrown away, which represents more than 100,000 tons of waste produced each year. With zero aluminum or plastic reaching consumers in their coffee balls – they are packaged in recyclable cardboard – CoffeeB hopes their product will lead to a zero-waste lifestyle.

coffee b coffee maker


The CoffeeB Globe machine is priced at CHF149 (~$155), with coffee balls starting at around five dollars for a pack of nine. At the moment, CoffeeB’s products are limited to Switzerland and France only, but hopefully the brand will soon bring its sustainable means to the rest of the world.


This coffee machine wants to make capsules a thing of the past • TechCrunch Fri, 09 Sep 2022 22:36:52 +0000

We’re all tired of plastic or aluminum capsules for making coffee, and I guess buying pre-ground coffee, a bean to cup machine, or just grinding your own beans is too much work for some people. Swiss coffee brand Migros has launched the CoffeeB machine, which uses coffee balls instead of traditional capsules. He wants to create a space between the convenience of capsules and the green factor that the grinder crowd has grown accustomed to.

The Coffee Ball is part of a new coffee capsule system – the first of its kind – which works entirely without capsules and generates no waste. The company claims it is “revolutionizing an industry plagued by colossal waste” and claims that capsule coffee drinkers produce 100,000 tonnes of waste globally each year. Some pods are indeed recyclable or biodegradable, but most still end up in the trash.

I’ll give them credit for one thing: that’s a delightfully hipster photograph you have there, Migros. Picture credits: Migros

“The next generation of capsule coffee is here, and it comes capsuleless,” says Dr. Caroline Siefarth of CoffeeB, who helped develop the system. “After half a decade of research, we have created CoffeeB, which will revolutionize the way the world drinks single-serve coffee.”

CoffeeB’s trick is to compress the coffee balls into a tasteless, colorless algae-based layer that gives the coffee structure and protects it from flavor loss. This means that the coffee capsule itself is fully compostable.

Of course, CoffeeB is the only company to make these capsules, and although they release eight different blends on day one (“of balance lungs to punchy espressos”), I’m still a little “meh” about the whole concept. My fear is that, if the launch doesn’t go well, there will be a bunch of shiny new machines that people can’t buy coffee for anymore. Two guesses: where do these machines end up? Yes, in the same landfill the company so happily tried to keep capsule-free.

Good balls of caffeine. Picture credits: Migros

For now, the machine is only available in Switzerland and costs a fairly reasonable price of $175 (CHF 169). A pack of nine scoops of coffee costs around $5, which seems about in line with other pod-based systems.

The main reason I decided to cover these machines is because it shows that rethinking the way we do things can give the environment some respite. Better design, with the environment at heart, will be a big piece of the puzzle in avoiding a climate crisis.

I have to say, though: we live in a world where coffee machines exist, and there’s not exactly a shortage of coffee beans in the world, ranging from the very cheap variety at the big box stores, to specialty hipster cafes, to the option of roasting your own, if you really want to control every aspect of your caffeine release. The beans require less processing and fewer tricks to make (not to mention we don’t add algae to the mix), it looks like we already have a green solution and educating coffee drinkers (or, maybe (maybe, making sure people pay the “green fee” for using plastic or metal caps) would be a better solution.

Starbucks’ new chef may blackmail the coffee brand after a drastic stint at maker Dettol Wed, 07 Sep 2022 13:57:28 +0000

It was a question no one could answer. We were with a friend in the music industry who had a lucrative line writing jingles for commercials.

“When you think of Dettol, what comes to mind musically?” How you write a song to sell a brand of sanitizer was beyond us.

I remembered our reaction when it was announced that Laxman Narasimhan was leaving his position as general manager of Reckitt Benckiser, maker of Dettol, for the top job at Starbucks. He trades not only the Thames Valley house, Dettol but also Durex condoms, Calgon detergent, Nurofen painkillers and Strepsil throat lozenges, for Seattle and the headquarters of the world’s biggest and most serious coffee chain.

To say it seems like an unlikely match, packaged goods and coffees, is an understatement. At first glance, it’s hard to see what Narasimhan brings to the job of CEO of Starbucks, how he landed the job.

But he was chosen, after what would have been a rigorous search by Charles Tribbett III, then co-CEO and advisory arm of the board of directors of Russell Reynolds Associates, now vice president of the recruiter. Apparently, the 55-year-old was identified as a likely successor to Starbucks chief Kevin Johnson a year ago.

Johnson retired earlier this year and Howard Schultz returned to run Starbucks for the third time. If anyone was identified with the runaway success of Starbucks, it was Schultz. He first led the company in 1987, and in more than four decades as chief executive and chairman, he has grown the company from 11 stores to more than 28,000 in 77 countries.

Laxman Narasimhan has no experience in direct-to-consumer sales, but he initiated a step change.  Reckitt Benckiser

Narasimhan goes from persuading Tesco and Walmart to stock and prominently display his floor cleaner and list of, let’s face it, not exactly exciting household items, to serving the millions of customers who visit a Starbucks every days.

He has no direct-to-consumer experience or managing a retail network. He also did not run a cafe or operate a coffee machine. But he is an expert in consumer behavior, in predicting and responding to their changing habits, and in making them choose his items in preference to others.

What he has in his arsenal is a resume that, apart from Reckitt, includes a stint as chief commercial officer of PepsiCo, and also nearly 20 years at consultancy and turnaround specialist, McKinsey & Co.

Narasimhan showed that at Reckitt he was not afraid to implement radical change. His first action upon taking office in 2019 was to commission a strategic review. It saw him commit to spending £2billion over three years to, as he put it, ‘rejuvenate’ the company’s lineup. Margins suffered as he financed new investments and reoriented the group towards health, hygiene and nutrition brands.

The task ahead of Narasimhan is to repeat the magic at Starbucks.  Bloomberg

Investors, skeptical at first, were won over. After a turbulent period that had seen questions raised about his very survival, Reckitt is sharp and focused. It is a group that has regained confidence, the shareholders are delighted and these doubts have disappeared.

The task ahead of Narasimhan is to repeat the magic at Starbucks. That’s the point, and goes to the heart of why he was anointed: for all his size and iconic status, the global brand isn’t in great shape.

At Reckitt, he called it rejuvenation; at Starbucks, we are already talking about “reinvention”. Even before his appointment, the company was introducing better pay for baristas, planning improvements to staff wellbeing and the customer experience, and reimagining stores.

Once edgy, the original coffee chain that swept the world has been overtaken by cooler, smarter names. Starbucks, in short, is no longer the star it once was. The pandemic has put more emphasis on mobile pickup and delivery. The branches were empty and tired.

Starbucks is not immune to rising costs and supply chain challenges. Nothing is more sensitive or subject to comparison and discussion than the price of a cup of coffee. He also has to deal with the fact that his points of sale are often in the wrong places, because working methods have changed. Suburban independent cafes boomed thanks to WFH; The office district and downtown Starbucks, by comparison, struggled.

Narasimhan's new employer is not a happy nirvana.  Getty

Despite his once-hippie image and love of positive messages, Narasimhan’s new employer is not a happy nirvana. In the United States, employees at more than 200 branches have joined unions in the past 12 months. Others are following suit. Staff are demanding higher benefits and salaries.

The feeling persists that Starbucks has become too big, too sprawling, too disconnected from its origins and now seems old-fashioned and lacking in the innovation it was once famous for.

Schultz, who remains on the board, is behind a reshuffle – he tellingly decreed that the new CEO should be external, citing a need for new talent and skills in his senior leadership.

Enter Narasimhan. Except that he doesn’t take care of it right away. In recognition of the dramatic transition he is making and his strengths as a strategist and planner, he is taking six months to familiarize himself with the company before officially becoming CEO in April 2023.

Management is going through a delicate period. He is known as a retail merchant. Every aspect of Starbucks can expect to be scrutinized and taken apart as it decides its moves.

Why Narasimhan? On closer inspection, it makes sense. A song for Dettol? Alas, I still can’t answer that one.

Impact of COVID-19 on the coffee pod machine market
The consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak have been widely documented, as it has wreaked havoc across a wide range of sectors, shutting down some and drastically reducing the ability of others to operate. Several companies, including hotels and restaurants and the education sector, are among the main customers of POD coffee machines.
Consequently, the covid-19 has had an adverse influence on the commercial end users of the Coffee Machine Market. Additionally, the manufacturer was unable to source components and deliver finished products due to supply chain disruption.

How an Office Coffee Machine Can Benefit Employees Mon, 22 Aug 2022 13:25:09 +0000

While the UK is known to be a nation of tea drinkers, it will certainly come as no surprise to discover that in recent years the gap between tea and coffee drinkers has narrowed, with coffee becoming increasingly people’s favorite hot drink.

The coffee culture, which has seen cafes, both independent and chain, spring up on the high street, coupled with free wifi, has helped boost coffee sales. The greater availability of quality coffee machines at affordable prices has also contributed to this change.

If you’ve noticed that more of your employees are coming into the office in the morning with a hopefully recyclable cup of coffee in hand, then now might be the time to consider investing in a machine. office coffee maker that would really benefit your employees.

If you’re not convinced, keep reading as we explore some of the reasons why having an office coffee machine could be a real benefit.

Coffee improves productivity

Everyone knows that caffeine can wake you up. This is not hearsay, but proven scientific fact. Caffeine is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body, including the brain. It works by blocking sleep-promoting receptors in the brain, making it easier to stay awake and alert. So a cup of coffee in the office could help your employees feel more energized and therefore more productive.

Studies have even shown that in moderation, caffeine can increase attention span and improve memory for up to 24 hours.

COFFEE STATISTICS: 67% of UK employees feel more productive after a coffee break.

Coffee reduces stress

Not only can coffee have a positive impact on physical well-being, but it also helps release dopamine, the hormone that actually makes us happy. Coffee is, in fact, a quick fix when it comes to this natural mood-boosting hormone, and it’s something that can really help when your day is tough. Studies have also shown that coffee can help reduce anxiety levels. At some point, everyone finds work stressful, and coffee is a simple and inexpensive way to alleviate that.

COFFEE STATISTICS: At companies with more than 20 employees, 83% said their employees said taking a coffee break with co-workers helped relieve stress. This figure was highest in creative industries, insurance/finance and HR.

Office coffee machines save employees money

There’s no denying that a good cup of coffee comes at a cost and for those times when a cup of instant coffee just isn’t enough, a quick trip to the nearest coffee shop is usually the order of the day. Even with just one cup of coffee a day, that cost can quickly add up. A recent article in Which, looked at the cost of buying a medium-sized Americano in a large chain cafe every day for a year and came up with an annual cost of just over £1050. The article was actually looking at how you could save money by going instant (365 cups of a well-known instant coffee costing around £15 for the year), and although we’re not suggesting it, a desktop cup machine would definitely help employees save money.

COFFEE STATISTICS: 36% (just over a third) of UK employees in management positions rate a company on the quality of the coffee they serve.

Office coffee machines save time

If your employees want good coffee, chances are they’ll spend their coffee breaks getting out of the office doing coffee rounds. Having access to an office coffee machine means they can use their coffee break for a real break.

COFFEE STATISTICS: 53% of employees in the UK who regularly drink good quality coffee in the office say that during their coffee breaks they come up with creative ideas.

Good coffee impresses customers

When it comes to making a good impression, the old adage “first impressions count” certainly holds true. Whether you’re trying to impress new customers or established customers, there’s nothing worse than offering a customer a cup of coffee that isn’t good. An office coffee machine could really come into its own when you have customers visiting, because image really matters.

COFFEE STATISTICS: Across all industries, 77% of employees believe that serving high-quality coffee in the office is essential for visitors and customers.

Coffee can improve working relationships

Recent studies have looked at how companies can improve the layout of their office spaces, with open plan offices, hotdesking, and breakout spaces proving to be highly beneficial for employee happiness and productivity. There’s definitely something to be said for taking breaks away from your desk and socializing with colleagues. What better way to do that than with a nice cup of coffee?

COFFEE STATISTICS: 81% of UK employees said coffee breaks helped them build better relationships with colleagues.

There are great coffee machines out there that can deliver a great cup of coffee in the office, whether your drink of choice is an espresso, latte, or Americano. Although the thought of an office-grade machine using ground coffee might seem a bit daunting, there’s really nothing to worry about. With the right setup and a bit of know-how, you could be brewing quality coffee from great coffee beans right in your office in no time.

Also, if your office is trying to be more eco-friendly, you can consider one of the more eco-friendly machines that are becoming increasingly popular in the market. Don’t forget to also pair it with reusable cups. There truly is a more sustainable angle when it comes to having great coffee at work, and it’s something every business should consider.

With all these advantages in terms of productivity, well-being and brand image, are you now considering turning to the rental or purchase of a professional coffee machine? If so, why not speak to the team here, where we would be delighted to help you find the right office coffee machine for your needs.

Angel & Anchor’s identity for a Bristol coffee brand is a triple threat Mon, 22 Aug 2022 06:00:00 +0000

We are big fans of the Belfast branding studio Angel and Anchor; Last March, we reported on their VHS-inspired identity for the specialty coffee roasting process. So we were excited to see what they would come up with for their latest project.

Triple Co. is a Bristol-based specialty coffee roaster that was launched in 2016. Recently the company asked Angel & Anchor to go to the drawing board and come up with a new brand image that would represent a significant change of personality.

The brief

Back then, Triple Co. founder Jo Thompson got his start in specialty coffee, taking inspiration from Copenhagen’s lab-style brewing. Ultimately, he ended up in Florida with King State Coffee, connecting to a more personal and dynamic approach to the coffee industry.

Triple Co. evolved through Jo’s mixed influences and experiences. But its original brand image was not up to par. Basically, it was a collection of unrelated design elements.

The approach

“Triple Co’s existing brand was, at its core, a reflection of the minimalist brewing style that sparked the start of roasting,” says Ben Connolly, founder of Angel & Anchor.

“The brand elements were a mix of clean lines, a sans serif logo, a monotone color palette, grainy illustrations and hand drawn lettering. As a collection of mismatched elements, their personality seemed compromised rather than unified.”

In short, after six years in the industry, Triple Co’s passion and experiences had evolved. More charismatic and confident than their youngsters, they overcame their brand image and sought an identity that was coherent and true to themselves. With a secure new sense of identity, they wanted the new branding to reflect their history and values ​​holistically.

“Triple Co. is a perfect example of professionalism and personality coexisting,” notes Ben. “They are dedicated repairers of espresso machines, classic cars, and greasy machines in between. Their dedication to excellence hasn’t dampened their gutsy attitude. This adventurous, down-to-earth group doesn’t not afraid to get your hands dirty making waves in Bristol and beyond.”

The hand drawn serif logotype is beautifully original. As Ben explains, “It’s grounded, human, and complements the many other elements of the brand. An extended lock type collection allows for an engaging yet cohesive brand expression so that the logo best suits its location. A Secondary custom monogram logo features a spiral connecting its letters, reflecting the sense of movement in coffee preparation throughout the brand.”

Angel & Anchor associated it with a secondary title type: Santa Ana by Hoodzpah Design. “The primary use of italics extends the theme of movement across the brand,” Ben explains. “Its typeface resembles retro garage signage and American car advertisements. This typeface plays a prominent role, conveying much of the brand’s personality in packaging, website design and accompanying printed materials.”

The base logo is inspired by the three arms of a roasting machine, as well as Triple Co’s three core values. flow of water and heat energy in roasting and brewing,” says Ben.

The brand colors further characterize Triple Co’s philosophy and personality. “A leafy green represents the source of the coffee tree and blue reflects the water to brew the coffee. Black adds contrast to the palette and reflects the fat the grain of the hands-on approach to espresso machine and car maintenance.”

The main motif of the packaging is influenced by oil spills and flowing movements and gives the brand a playful and dynamic character. Packaging labels feature an ironic twist through photography, interpreting the abstract flavor notes of each roast through the food, object, animal or quirky scene. The cafe details on the labels make unconventional use of type to frame the photo, lightly guiding the reader’s eye around the image.

In the posts, taglines like “Keep It Funky” and “Cool Kids Drink Triple Co.” tie together the core values ​​of the brand, its courageous personality and its visuals. The sender’s packaging includes other lines that embody a laid-back, friendly tone, such as “Get Your Sip On”.

It all adds up to a relaxed gritty feel, reflecting the brand’s down-to-earth values, energy and personal, adventurous approach to the coffee industry.
