Caramel Brûlée Coffee

One look around my kitchen, and you would immediately realize that I’m coffee obsessed. I have a coffee maker, two French presses, a cold brewer, and I’m thinking of asking for some type of espresso maker for Christmas. So clearly, whenever I get a chance to try a new coffee gadget, I’m excited.

Just in time for holiday gift-giving and entertaining, the iCoffee® Single Serve is making it’s debut. This sleek machine features SpinBrew™ technology, which uses a needle to stir the coffee inside a single-serve k-type cup, replicating the brewing process of my favorite French press. This process virtually eliminates bitter or acidic aftertastes.

iCoffee Single Serve is compatible with all k-type cups, including K-Cup®, RealCups®, OneCups™, and private label cups. I immediately headed out to my favorite Michigan-based coffee chain and picked up a box of their cups. The iCoffee brewed a perfect 10-ounce cup of coffee in less than a minute! While I’ve had trouble getting a truly HOT cup of coffee with some other single-serve brewers, that was not the case with iCoffee. It was nice and hot, even after I added a splash of milk.

Because I still had a small jar of bourbon caramel sauce left over from my Apple & Pecan Tart, I knew some sort of fancy coffeehouse-style caramel-coffee-delicious drink was in order. No worries if you don’t have homemade caramel – you can use any sort of store-bought caramel sauce for this, too!

This Caramel Brûlée Coffee came together in just minutes. First, I used the iCoffee to quickly brew two cups of coffee. While that was working, I heated up some milk, caramel sauce and a touch of brown sugar (for that brûléed torched sugar efffect). Coffee, meet caramel-infused milk, meet my tastebuds.

    Because of my wonderful wife, I now have one of these in my cubicle at work.  All of my office loves the true coffee favor and feel every morning.  It beats the regular potted swill hands down.  Getting gadgets like this is truly – along with getting leftovers – the best part about blog-husbandry.  Thanks honey!!!  My coworkers thank you too!!!

    Hi Lori, this is pretty much an expansion of Jeff’s post (up there). We’ve all been using the iCoffee machine Jeff brought in and love it. In addition to having great flavored coffee, it’s also remedied the annoyance of
    watching all the managers take the last cup of swill and leaving an empty pot for someone else to fill. So thank you for sending it it. My wife has been interested in getting a maker like this for a little and now having used one I think I know what she’s getting for Christmas. Website looks great Lori! Thanks again. P.S. Twizzlers are on the way….
