A Single Serve Second Cup?

I'm cheap and I'm also loathe to throw something out when it could be used more than once. So - I embarked on trying to see if the second cup of coffee from Senseo pods was any good. Well - it is! But - only from the Dark Roast Pods.

The light roast and medium pods just don't work that well. The coffee is too light and there is no real froth from the crema action the second time.

The dark roast pods are reusable a second time - but ONLY SOON AFTER you have brewed the coffee. Let's say you get up at 7:30am - you brew at 7:45am - I would give the pods about a 1/2 hour or so and use them in that time and DON'T take them out of the machine. Simply make sure you have enough water - reheat - and rebrew a double cup.

Also - this doesn't work with single cups. It seems the double pods of the double cup have enough juice to brew that second cup.

Well - try it and let me know what you think of that "SECOND CUP".

I finally picked up a Senseo. The second cup (4oz) out of a dark roast pod isn't bad. Slightly weaker than the first.

I haven't tried to make 2 cups (8oz) out of 1 pod yet.

if you go to ebay.de and search for senseo there's a lot of interesting senseo accesories etc. i can't read the pages, but the pictures of some of the aftermarket things are interesting...just fyi.

Dark Roast pod - didn't work with any of the other roasts.

What blend did you use for your experiment?

I tried a the double button with the single pod and the coffee is great. Okay...so that makes my double pod use it twice theory even more valid. OH SENSEO!

I'm not sure about the one pod - two cup. Hmmm...I'll have to experiment with that.

You always use 2 pods for the double cup option?

Is it too weak with one pod? (My wife likes weak coffee, so I'll have to experiment. I think I'll pick up a Senseo this weekend.)
