"Taking a page out of Lexmark playbook, the Keurig company, famous for it's one-cup coffee making system, now comes with new and improved 100% DRM. Apparently, Keurig is upset over re-usable third-party 'coffee pods' which allow the consumer to escape the Keurig throw-away models which carry a retail price 5% to 25% more. Keurig's CEO, Brian Kelly referred to the move as 'game-changing performance.' Perhaps this will finally be the year of Linux on the Coffe Maker?"

    Cold brew is awesome. I never actually done it myself but I buy it from natural foods stores. You can boil up water, put the cold brew into the cup then add boiling water. It mixes and balances out to perfect drinking temperature unless you want it stronger. If you do it yourself you can always have it ready just mix water brought to a boil (or however warm).

    I don't like cold brewed at a cold temp. A company by me also recently started offering cold brew nitro tap - Different but kinda weird. I also am lucky to live by a coffee place that has a clover before they got bought out by starbucks :)

    Also if ppl are bothered by coffee being acidic apparently cold brewed is not as harsh - but Im not really in the know about all that never had any problems myself.
