Pod Depot Debuts
Pod Depot is carrying Melitta, Senseo, and Home Cafe compatible pods. They come in a variety of flavors: Columbian, French Roast, Hazelnut, and Espresso Roast Pods. The folks at Pod Depot were kind enough to send us out a set. We will be reviewing their Senseo compatible pods in the next few weeks.

I have had the same experience with the generic pods as Gail K.
If you wet the pod holder prior to use and moisten the edges of the pod and push it down in the pod holder, you usually get a good cup. This works with most of the generic pods.
I have found that the pods from CoolBeans (http://www.coolbeanspods.com/) work well in the Senseo®
I am not too happy with the poddepot pods in my Senseo. They are too small in both diameter and thickness and as a consequence the coffee just isn't as good IMHO. They smell great, both the hazelnut and the french roast, and if I am lucky and get them placed exactly right I get a good cup of coffee. If I'm off I get weak coffee. If I'm REALLY unlucky I get what looks like tea. I think they probably work great in a Melitta machine, but they are just too small for senseo.
The double American pods provided by Poddepot.com go in the double pod holder. They are a tiny bit smaller in diameter that the D & E and Flogers pods and must be placed carefully or you will get a cup of light brown foamy water! If placed carefully, you get a good cup of coffee for 34 cents for the double pod. I have tryed the hazelnut and the French roast. Both were very good.
