One-cup wonders challenge traditional coffeepots
I have to give this article some credit - I never thought about a household where some drinkers like mild coffee versus dark coffee. Having one of these single serve makers growing up would have solved many arguements on what to brew.
"Move over, coffeepot. There's a new pod in town. A fresh brood of at-home brewers, using single-serving packets or pods of coffee, has invaded. These one-cup wonders seek gourmet-joe converts -- and a little bottom-line vengeance -- promising:
• Premium coffeehouse taste in the comfort of your own abode. Sippers can kick the coffee-can habit -- and a Starbucks one while they're at it.
• No more household power struggles over flavor or strength.
• No more too-long-on-the-burner bitterness.
• No more foraging for filters, fussing with grounds or dumping three-quarters of a pot for the sake of a single morning fix."

I ordered coffee from Holland By Mail. DO NOT DO THE SAME !!!!!!
I ordered on Jul 8th this year. They billed my credit card on JUL 8TH. I went ahead and paid it thinking my order will come through. NOT !! After repeated emails with no response, I called my credit card and filed a dispute. I filed the dispute on Sept 28th, I received an email on Sep 29th. Here is a quote of the email "Did you get your shipment yet?"
My simple reply was "NO!!!". Didn't hear from them again, but on Oct 29th a package arrived with my order from Jul 8th.
I have just placed an order with Typical Dutch stuff and senseo pods listed on this site. Both have me marked as shipped, and they did so within 4 or 5 days. I will let you know what kind of service I receive from them..
My apologies to all, it was actually Holland's Best that I had ordered my Senseo pods from, not Holland by Mail. It has been a rough month.. :) I will give a full update when I receive my flavored pods. (Mocca Gourmet and Vienna).
