Single Serve Coffee Roundup 2004 Fun Stuff

060404lavazza.jpgIntereseting set of mini-reviews on both the makers and who they target. There is also mention of Lavazza: Espresso Point. It's a wild little machine! Oh...and priced at $895. I wouldn't really put it in the same ballpark as a Senseo or a Keurig.

"Imagine: hot, fresh coffee in less than a minute. That's the promise of a new generation of housewares, one-cup coffee makers, designed to capture the hearts, minds and pocketbooks of a nation of discriminating javaholics. For commuters, it means no standing in line at the coffee or convenience store and navigating a leaky cup, hoping you won't stain your fresh outfit before getting to the office. For home-based aficionados, no pre-dawn fumbling with water, filters, scoops and grounds, then listening to your spouse complain two hours later because it has gotten cold."

The more and more I read these blogs...the more it concerns me that people really think Starbucks is top quality coffee. Americans have no idea of what constitutes a truly perfect cup of coffee.

The coffee is very silky and very smooth. There are 3 blends - they are all good for different moods. It's a fantastic cup of coffee unlike any you have had before. It's very unique but if quality is an issue - it's as good as Starbucks or Peets - but different than drip - it's crema. DELICIOUS.

Thanks Jay. No, I don't drink a whole pot every time. In fact I usually end up throwing away at least one cup (my Krups coffee pot tastes best if I brew at least 6 "cups".)

I really wish I could try the coffee but I don't see store demos available.

Is it comparable to Starbucks, Peets, or the a good coffee shop?

That's seems to be the problem - how good is the coffee? The coffe from Senseo is amazing.

I will say - though the price per cup is higher - do you drink an entire pot of coffee everytime? That's how the price difference made "cents" to me.

Should I be concerned about price or pod availability? Good whole bean coffee is almost 1/2 the price of the senseo pods.

Is there anywhere I can get a demo or try the coffee so I don't end up putting $70 out to the trash? Anyone have a money back guarantee?

I looked at the senseo site for demo stores, but didn't find any demos scheduled north of boston or on NH.

So far the comments for the Senseo have been much better thank the One:One - however the Melitta maker has more variety available and a loyal following. So - ....I would make decisions on use.

Any opinion on the Senseo vs. the One:One?

Coffee availability? Taste? Quality?
