Has anyone seen a reusable pod filter for other machines? I have a Milleta.

Posted by: Sara at October 17, 2005 2:33 PM

The reuseable coffee filter will not work in the Bunn Cafe. There is currently no filter that will work.

Does anybody know if the reusable filter will work in the Bunn My Cafe pod machine, or if there is one out there that will?

I got my Senseo for a gift and I LOVE the unit!

I like the Senseo MILD pods. 2 pods for 1 cup!

The MEDIUM is okay but a bit strong for me.

The problem I am having is that I am in Central Florida (USA) and I cannot find the Senseo
pods anywhere! I am stuck using the Maxwell House Selects which are again a bit too strong.

The Home Cafe' pods appear to be a little too
big for the Senso machine and I don't want
to damage the handle on the machine.

I'm hoping my local grocery stores start getting
the Senso pods back on the shelf. There's tons of the Home Cafe pods available. No Senseo pods.

I'm thankful that my Senseo machine came in the box with one 18-pod package of the 3 flavors (Mild, Medium and Bold). I got to try all the flavors.

I just purchased the coffee maker but the company will not respond to questions regarding the rebate that they offer, nor will they respond to the coffe order I placed and did not receive. I think the buyers ought to be very carefull with this company.

Has anyone actually used one of these reusable filters yet? It would be great if they worked. I love the Senseo, but would like a great variety of coffee than is offered in the Senseo pods. Thanks.

Sheesh..I do not understand the folks that say they hate the Senseo coffee! Maybe it's operator error? Not enough pod, too much water?
I do enjoy fine coffee and I LOVE the brew made by this nifty little machine. I won't drink the weak stuff made in my office anymore - I just brew a double cup before I leave the house, stash it in a thermal mug and I'm good to go! When the drip coffeemaker my office uses now finally dies, I'm going to replace it with a Senseo! Mahalo and happy brewing!

I always see my typos after the fact. It should have read: "My real coffee affair is with ESPRESSO..."


Posted by: Perry Miller at July 6, 2004 11:00 PM

I'm a real coffee snob as well. I used one pod for one cup of coffee with the correct single pod holder. I also use filtered water. My real coffee affair is with good expression but enjoy a good up of regular coffee. The Sensio machine fell far short of the mark for what I expect in a quality cup of coffee.

Thanks for your input and pleased you find the machine works well for you.


Posted by: Perry Miller at July 6, 2004 10:56 PM

Did you try a double cup or a single cup? Also - did you use 1 pod or two pods?

1 Pod - 1 Cup
1 Pod - 2 Cups
2 Pods - 1 Cup
2 Pods - 2 cups

I always go 2 Pods - 2 Cups.

Did you get a good seal? I've been impressed with the coffee and I'm quite the coffee snob as are a bunch of my friends.

Posted by: Jay Brewer at July 6, 2004 10:13 PM

I tried the Senseo unit today using the dark roast. Terrible. The brew was weak and with no body. The cup of coffee was of the quality I expect from McDonalds rather than a restaurant who takes pride in its coffee. If others had a similar experience but found the permanent filter with a good quality coffee will rectify the situation, please let me know. I hope so, because I'm impressed with the machine and its concept.


Posted by: Perry Miller at July 6, 2004 10:07 PM

I meant 'stock'

Posted by: Joost Bijleveld at July 5, 2004 11:48 AM

I've contacted knives and tools and the filter are on stick right now ;)

I ordered mine a few days back but it seems to be on back order.. Oh well...


Posted by: Scott Geiger at June 30, 2004 5:48 PM

The Cafe-filter can be used for one cup. However, if you like to make 2 cups, use a stronger kind of coffee like espresso.

The filter always has to be placed in the 2-cup podholder.
For 1-cup simply press the one-cup button, for 2-cups the 2 cup-button (duh).

So it is possible to make 2-cups, but be sure to use a stronger kind of coffee.

With kind regards,

Joost Bijleveld

Sorry you didn't like the coffee Vickie. I think some people who don't like the coffee maybe getting a bag of stale coffee (hole in bag?) or trying a single pod in the double holder... As with any new coffee maker, it's best to run it a few times to season it.

Any way, I would like to know if the reusable pod is equivalent to a single or double pod? Thanks.

TNO Tested? That's good enough for me!
For all you people that don't know what TNO means, trust me, it means business!

Any WHY, do people keep saying they hate the Coffee? How can you NOT like the Douwe Egberts coffee? Or those coments about NOT strong enough?
I'm actually satisfied with the Mild variety.
I think most American coffees are horible, I actually started drinking coffee again after buying the Senseo.

I actually was in the Netherlands 2 weeks ago, and didn't find out I could buy a Senseo in the US untill I came back. I would have bought a bunch of stuff then.

Joost, thanks for the answer, hope you make lots of money!

Posted by: Michael van den Eijnden at June 29, 2004 10:26 AM

Never mind. Tried this unit today and found the coffee awful!!! Taking it right back!

Posted by: Vickie at June 28, 2004 9:42 PM

Just purchased the Senseo today for my husband. Am very much interested in the reusable filter, but have a question. Will the filter hold enough coffee to brew an eight ounce cup, or will it only hold enough for a smaller cup? Thanks!

Posted by: Vickie at June 28, 2004 1:53 PM

For your reassurance I can tell you that the filter is TNO tested and certified and is very durable.

The filter as seen on German e-bay sites probably is the same filter, since we also sell to certain German resellers. Others have bought the filter in the introduction period for a special introduction price and are now reselling them.

I'm Dutch (from the Netherlands)
and that's why I had to buy a Senseo coffee machine. (It's Dutch just like me)
Being Dutch, and known for being thrifty, ofcourse i'm going to need on of those permanent filters, but I still have some questions...
What is the difference with that "German" filter I see all over eBay. It looks brown and plastic, the "Dutch" one looks made from a harder material.
Tell me if e'm wrong... Also is it dishwasher safe? Not that I would put it in there, but it would reassure me that it could withstand great heat. Most likely will order one today, but hope anyone could help me answer these questions... Joost?
