4-0 out of 5 stars Only one complaint
Well, technically, I can't complain. It does what it's advertised to do -- make a piping hot cup of coffee in about 90 seconds with foam on the top. Changing coffee brands took some getting used to. For a company that's been in business since 1753, Douwe Egberts has a few things to learn about coffee. It has a sour taste that always makes me wonder if my cream has gone bad. Folgers Home Café makes pods about the same size. I never thought I'd be drinking Folgers, but it tastes better than the coffee designed for the machine. Were someone to come up with a reusable coffee pod, I'd go through the extra bother to get an excellent cup again. My one gripe with the Senseo is that the spout is fitted too low to accommodate any of my coffee mugs. The spout should be adjustable to provide an extra 1/4 to 1/2 inch of space if needed. I looked at the two cups that came with the machine only long enough to judge their weight and balance so I could sail them across the kitchen into the trash container. I found just one mug in my kitchen short enough to fit under the spout, so now I drink my coffee from my son's Winnie the Pooh Happy Birthday hot chocolate mug. He stopped drinking out of that mug 10 years ago. (sigh)

5-0 out of 5 stars Time for a coffee break worth every sip
Let me stress that I don't work for the manufacturer or for Sara Lee!

I received my machine on 9 April 2004 and brewed a cup within a few minutes (after flushing the machine as recommended). Even the medium roast tasted richer than most coffee I've made with traditional coffee makers. My wife likes a milder tasting coffee, so the mild roast is perfect for her. The dark roast is the closest to espresso you'll get without spending hundreds on an espresso machine. The coffee is nice and hot and the "crema" layer on top completes the experience!

For those who gave this machine poor reviews, make sure you wash the pod holders and water tank and flush the machine before the first use. If you don't use it for more than a day, flush it before use with fresh, cold water. Be sure to use the correct pod holder and press the correct (4 oz or 8 oz) button. Place the pod with the flat side up(has the Senseo logo printed on this side). Use fresh, cold water (probably the most important ingredient in coffee) and don't reuse the pods! I tried this and the second cup tasted like "coffee from a can" coffee. Finally, and most important: give the coffee a stir before drinking. The bottom layer contains most of the good stuff.

I hope that other coffee roasters are reading these reviews and will offer pods. My only concern at this point is that there aren't any alternative pods from other roasters yet available. The Douwe Egberts brand coffee is excellent, but the availability of a variety of blends and beans will be demanded soon, because sales of this machine are sure to take off!

Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars European coffee at its best
This is a great coffee maker if you like strong european coffee, which I do. The cup sizes are smaller than what most americans are used to, but the coffee tastes great, and more is not needed. I've been looking for something like this for ages. Glad I found it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Looks Good, Tastes Lousy
This machine looks great on the counter and you can't beat the convenience. You'll have 4 ounces (1 pod) or 8 ounces (2 pods) of the most mediocre and expensive coffee you could hope for in less than two minutes--from a cold start. Maybe it's not the coffee, but the process that turns out this cup of...whatever it is. I don't know. <br /> <br /> Maybe some other models make a better cup of coffee--and a real cup, not this dainty 4 oz toy cup. Try before you buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yeah BABY!!!
I got a Black & Decker home cafe for my birthday in September. Great coffee...well due to reviews on this site I kept the box and receipt (it was from Target..of course :). Well it worked <br /> for about 6 weeks...and then started spewing water everywhere. <br /> I boxed it up and took it back and decided I could be ok with <br /> my drip coffee maker...well here I am 1 week later...I was <br /> making my sorry drip coffee this morning and...long story short. I couldn't deal...so I went to target this afternoon <br /> and used my gift card (from the Home Cafe return) to purchase <br /> a nice black senseo. <br /> <br /> I have just finished my first cup of coffee from the Senseo and WOW. AWESOME. There is no contest between the coffee <br /> from the senseo and the coffee from the home cafe. The home <br /> cafe made lukewarm coffee...the senseo made coffee just slightly too hot to drink right away...PEFECT IMHO. I like <br /> my coffee to be good and hot when I first drink it.<br /> <br /> Also, the senseo is most certainly of higher qualite' than <br /> the B&D machine. It doesn't feel like it's going to fall <br /> apart when you touch it. I did take the advice of the <br /> reviewer who said to thoroughly clean and soak all the pieces <br /> before using the machine and I don't notice any strange chemical-like taste. <br /> <br /> Anyway, major thumbs up. I thought the home cafe would be <br /> nicer because you can get a 14 oz cup of coffee..but honestly <br /> 8 oz is PLENTY and really if you wanted 12 you can just <br /> brew an 8 oz cup and press the 1 cup button again and get <br /> your 12 oz. It would be nice if you could fit a travel mug <br /> in it...but I did get quite a large mug that I have under <br /> the spout so this isn't that big of an issue. <br /> <br /> I also find that one pod is enough even with 8 oz of coffee. <br /> It was quite strong (course I am an American and all so not <br /> used to drinking straight up espresso)....and just about <br /> perfect for my taste. <br /> <br /> Anyway, just wanted to let you all know I think the senseo is <br /> a great buy. Now if the pods would come down in price I'd <br /> be REALLY pleased. :) ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Uniquely designed with similarities to an espresso machine, this coffee maker features a 1450-watt boiler that brews a 4-ounce cup of coffee in just thirty seconds, or two 4-ounce cups or one 8-ounce mug in 60 seconds. Because the machine uses pre-measured coffee pods, the system is hassle-free, easy to clean, and guarantees a flavorful, fresh brew each time.

Measuring 13-1/2 by 12 by 8-1/2 inches, the coffee maker is shaped like a curved cylinder with a round base. Two pod holders are included: a shallow holder that holds one coffee pod for one cup, and a deeper filter that holds two pods for two cups (or one 8-ounce mug). After filling the removable reservoir with fresh water to the ‘max’ line, the pods are inserted and the lid locked into place. A simple push of the on/off button and either of the one or two cup buttons starts the brewing process. Up to five 4-ounce cups can be brewed on one reservoir of water. Cups are not included, but almost any 4-ounce cup or 8-ounce mug will do the trick. All the removable parts--the pod holders, reservoir, coffee spout, plastic drip tray, and metal cup tray--are dishwasher-safe. A variety of coffee pods are available separately. This coffee machine is unusable at altitudes over 6800 feet. The Senseo coffee maker is covered by a two-year warranty against defects and measures 13-1/2 by 12 by 8-1/2 inches. --Ann Bieri ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Machine -- Great Coffee!
Hi, there!

I recently went on a trip to The Netherlands and discovered Senseo there. I was very happy to realize they were being sold stateside as well and immediately purchased a machine for my husband and I.

I *LOVE* The coffee, it stands up well to Soy Milk, all my guests can have their choice per cup, (some want decaf, some want dark, some medium or light). I also love that every cup I make is fresh and hot, not like when I used to have to make a whole pot then keep it vacuum sealed just to get bitter and overcooked all day. My "usual" is an 8-oz cup made with one Dark Roast and one Medium Roast pod.

It seems a lot of my friends are confused about whether this is an espresso machine or a coffee machine. Its a coffee machine that uses "Espresso-Pod-Like" pods to make normal drip coffee, one cup at a time. Its nice, rich coffee, but its not espresso, though I guess you could make a Latte or Mocha out of the resulting brew if you wanted.

I had purchased a Melitta machine, but I returned it because the top was hard to keep closed, it seemed a bit "flimsy" and it ONLY made one size cup of coffee, I didn't have the choice to make one smaller cup, two smaller cups or one big mug, which I really like with this machine. The coffee also didn't taste anywhere near as nice to me.

Senseo's coffee is comparable to Starbucks that I've tried, not quite as good as fresh brewed Starbucks drip, and not as hearty as a Starbucks espresso, but definitely good, rich and flavorful. In Europe, they have several other flavors of pods including Rio de Janeiro, Milano, Vienna and Sydney. I guess these are all part of the "City Sensations" line. Also, Douwe Egberts, the maker of the coffee pods, is a HUGE brand in The Netherlands... in the airport and at several other locations, there are Douwe Egberts cafes in the Amsterdam airport, etc. and its a well-respected brand.

I'm surprised to hear that some think the machine is too noisy. While mine does make a distinct noise while brewing the coffee, its very short and about the same level of noise as a larger pump for a fishtank makes... it lasts less than a minute.

Anyway, enough said. I hope you all enjoy your Senseo machines!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best new products of 2004
This is a marvelous machine for a variety of reasons:

1) Good coffee. I am particular about coffee and when I read so many people complaining about the taste of the coffee I made sure I could return the unit if the coffee was as bad as some people claimed. It was not. The crema on top and the freshness of the coffee are great. If the best coffee house coffee is an "A", then this creates "B+" coffee.

2) Could not be easier to use or clean. I have had several people's jaws drop as they push the button and find themselves drinking great coffee just 25 seconds later. Clean up involves rinsing off a couple of parts that are easily detached.

3) Freshness, not quantity. I used to drink 12-16 ounces of coffee in the morning. Now I drink 4 ounces first thing in the morning, another 4 ounces a little later and perhaps another 4 ounces in the afternoon. Since it is so easy to make a fresh cup anytime I want one, I prefer this schedule to a big cup in the morning. The Senseo can brew 8 ounces at a time, but a rich 4 ounce cup is surprisingly satisfying.

4) To each his own: Just this evening two people at my dinner party wanted decaf while another wanted dark roast and the fourth wanted light roast. With the Senseo, these individual orders were a snap.

5) Good coffee with more options on the horizon: The Douwe Egberts brand is fine but as this coffee machine gains popularity, alternatives will emerge. Visit podhead.com to see more on the potential here.

My sister visited Holland and tasted our Senseo made coffee.<br /> she said " Oh man!! I have to get me one of these!"<br /> I went online, There it was at Target! I sent the link!<br /> My sister is going to freakout when she sees my mail! Thanks, Target!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars The Dutch know their coffee!
I come from the Netherlands and I am familiar with the quality of both Douwe Egberts and Philips products and seeing this amazing combined effort I couldn't resist!*smile* I bought this coffee maker as a gift for my boyfriend's grandparents and they love it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Best at home coffee ever
I bought all three pod coffee makers(one at a time) and kept the Senseo. The others were returned. The Melita leaked if I used anything other than Melita coffee pods, the Black and Decker's coffee did not even compare and it was a pain to change the pods, the Senseo makes and excellent cup of FRESH coffee and is easy to use. It also works with all of the pods that I have found locally (grocer has Folgers and Senseo, got Melita pods @ Target). It also works with the Melita tea pods - my husband is an Enlishman and loves his tea - this machine delivers for both of us. The coffee is frothy, hot and delicious. No more stale, bitter coffee at our house. Always fresh. This is a great machine for any coffee or tea lover. I just wish the pods were more easily accessible. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good at what it does...
The senseo is a rather unique concept in coffee machines. As a coffee lover, I

figured I'd give it a try.

Out of the box, it was easy to set up. Within 10 minutes I was making my first

cup. I was pleased with the creamy head of foam that the machine produces atop the cup, reminiscent of an espresso drink. It was refreshing to get that fresh-brewed coffee smell so quickly with so little effort. The taste? While not the finest cup of coffee I've had, it was more than satisfying. It's hard to get good coffee around these parts on my way to work at 6:30am.

I tried all 3 roasts (I'm not a decaf fan) and liked the medium roast the best. I was a little disappointed that the pods only come in "Mild", "medium" and "dark"... but I'm sure someone will come out with more variteies eventually.

The good:

-Quick Brewing, I can have a cup ready in about a minute.
-Pod system is convenient when brewing just 1 or 2 cups
-Simple cleanup (reservior under where the cup is)
-Easy, and intuitive design and use
-Coffee is tasty
-Never a burnt cup of coffee

The Bad:

-Coffee sometimes comes out less-than-piping-hot
-Only one brand of Pods available (as far as I know)
-Each pod only brews 6oz of coffee
-A little louder than I expected... and has an air-compressor type noise instead of a coffee maker type noise.

Overall, a very good product.

5-0 out of 5 stars ...don't open it before you take it to the office.
My husband and I are hooked.

I bought this little thing at Sam's (it's packaged with the extra large water reservoir there) to take to work so that I didn't have to drink office swill anymore. I was thinking that I could have my dark roast, my officemates could have their light roast, the caffeine-sensitive could have their decaf, and we'd all be happy.
I made a mistake: I hooked it up at home and let my husband try it. It will likely never leave our kitchen countertop.

Some random info:

--Two cups is a full mug of coffee. Not five, as a recent review states.
--We have a set of glass "cappuccino mugs" (from Bormioli, I believe) that are perfectly sized and beautifully present a single cup. Highly recommended.
--The extra large reservoir is very nice to have.
--We're very happy with the Dutch coffee. However, look for www.cafepods.com to offer 62mm Senseo-sized pods for the U.S. market (ie without outrageous European shipping costs) in the near future.

So many have written on the virtues of this little machine that I don't have much to add other than a very enthusiastic "me, too!"

Prepare to be impressed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Has revolutionized my life!!!
Okay...after years of making Starbucks rich and suffering with drip coffee by adding a ton of sugar and creamer, this coffe maker has FREED ME FROM BAD AMERICAN COFFEE! It is SO easy to use, a tad noisy but QUICK...and FYI you can use the one pod, choose the two coffee cup option, and have a full sized coffee cup with froth to die for! THE GREATEST ADDITION TO MY KITCHEN, THANKS!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best single serve machine I've found
I tried the other single serve machines on the market and the Senseo wins hands down. The Melitta wasn't bad except it brews at least an ounce less than it says. I couldn't figure out why it seemed as though I wasn't getting very much coffee. I read other reviews on the Melitta and found other people who realized it doesn't deliver what it says either. The water tank is small. Also, I do not care for the Melitta coffee pods at all.<br /> <br /> The Home Cafe machine, as others have pointed out, is not sturdily built at all. I was not impressed with the quality or the flavor of the coffee when brewed in it.<br /> <br /> The Senseo machine is available with a 40 ounce water tank which is very practical. It is a sturdy machine and easy to open and close. I love the coffee (wish there were more flavors but figure they will come in time) and the froth generated because of at least some pressure, brews the pods just right. I'm glad I continued my search and tried the Senseo. Everyone in our house loves it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Senseo is the only choice in "Pod" brewers!
I purchased the Senseo Coffee Maker about 3 months ago and am very happy with the quality of the machine and most of all the quality taste of the coffee. It is awesome!!<br /> <br /> I carefully selected the Senseo over the others (B&D and Melitta) because of the way it was put together. The others appeared to be cheaply put together (especially the Black and Decker) and I did not think they would last too long. In fact the Black and Decker on the shelf was broken. When I mentioned this to a sales associate who was nearby, she told me that the one on the shelf was the third one that had been on display in the past month because they kept breaking. I almost went with the Melitta because I am familiar with their coffee (great coffee) but was interested in the "european style" of Douwe Egberts coffee. I was not disappointed!! Great taste!<br /> <br /> The only draw back (so I thought at first) was the 4oz cup of coffee. I quickly found that this was not as big a deal as I thought because of the rich flavor of the coffee.<br /> <br /> And talk about convenience......great coffee when you want it and fast (about a minute and a half from the time you turn it on to the time you take your first sip). Have I mentioned it takes just about as long to clean as it does to brew a cup?<br /> <br /> Do what I did and compare the machines on the shelf at your local Target and you will quickly notice the difference in construction.....SENSEO is far superior in all aspects. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Handy.
Our Senseo came from Sam's and was packaged with one of these, but I imagine that if I had bought a model without it, we would have eventually bought one. As the directions suggest, we run a cup of water (no pod) through the Senseo when we first start it to get the parts warm and make the coffee come out hotter. It doesn't take long to run through a standard-sized tank of water if you're doing that each time you fire up the machine. The larger reservoir means fewer refillings, about once a day for us instead of two a day.

The downside is that it does make the machine about 3-4" deeper than it would be otherwise, and make it not quite as sleek-looking. It's still very snazzy, though, and I think the convenience is worth a few inches of countertop space. ... Read more
