Review: Easypods.co.uk Vanilla Coffee Pods

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviewseasypodreviews_vanilla.jpg

Cost and Price of Pods

I bought 210 pods from Easypods.co.uk to test the various flavors of coffee and to suppliment just having the current Senseo line up of coffee in Mild, Medium, and Dark Roast.

Total cost: $135.07 / 210 = ~.0.6428571428571429 cents a pod.

Currently Senseo coffee from Sarah Lee is at ~.27 or .28 cents a coffee pod.

So if cost is a factor - we are talking twice as expensive per cup of coffee versus the current Senseo cup at .27 cents. However - that's still less than half the cost for Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts coffee. Also, I wanted to have some new flavors and also be able to mix and match with the current pods.

Brewing the Coffee

Vanilla Creme
I brewed the coffee in 3 methods:

1 Vanilla Pod - Double Cup: I do this all the time with a Dark Roast Senseo Pod - the coffee taste with the Vanilla pod from Easypods was a little watery even though it produced a rich frothy head, the taste is very vanilla and yummy but the texture of the Senseo pod is not there.

2 Vanilla Pods - Double Cup: This brews a very rich dark cup of coffee that has a strong vanilla taste - it's still missing the silky texture of the Senseo pod - but this is a good cup of flavored coffee.

1 Vanilla Pod - 1 Senseo Dark Roast Pod - Double Cup: This is the best of the 3 methods. You get the flavor. You get the darker roast taste - and the texture returns to the coffee.

2 Pods are packed
in a convenient pouch.
The pods fit in the
Senseo with ease.
Brew that vanilla coffee!!!
The coffee looks good...
A nice thick rich frothy Senseo cup.
After creme and sugar...

Conclusion

So far I'm pleased with the pods. I will be reviewing the Buzz, Italian, and other pods I received over the next week.

Stay TUNED!

Wow. This is too bad. I thought (from emails and such) that cafepods.com was going to be US based.

Got the coffee and drank it. 3 weeks later the customs invoice showed up for $20. This was somewhat of a surprise, and makes the coffee effectively to expensive. Too bad there aren't any reasonable US distributors yet.

Order process was very smooth. They fit with no adaptor into the Senseo. It took about 2 weeks to get the coffee.

Jay,

Thanks for the review. I'll have to give them a shot sometime.

The order process was smooth? How long did it take to get your coffee?

Looks like the pods fit in with no adapter of any kind? The Melitta One:One customers were complaining about the adapter ring required for the One:One pods sold by podhead.com.
