JavaOne Pods - Reader Reports

"Received of the coffee yesterday and had to try a cup of each... Here is what I found:
Java One Costa Rican - Excellent coffee, very smooth fresh taste. I highly recommend it for the Senseo and would definitely purchase again. I might be a little biased because Costa Rican coffee is my absolute favorite. The crema layer was better then the actual Senseo pods by DE.
Java One Hazelnut Decaf - Bad news, stay away. Thought it might of been me so I had my wife try it as well. There is a bitter aftertaste, not much better then you would get at the local Circle-K. I will give it one more shot and report back.
Green Mountain French Roast - Very good, would also highly recommend. Makes a bold cup of coffee with a bright sweet finish. You have to use the double pod holder and make sure that the pod is positioned correctly.
All of the above mentioned pods fit well in the Senseo.. I would definitely go with the Java One Costa Rican as my top choice. I found the prices and service to be excellent at coffeegiant.com, order was shipped the same day it was received.

I've been using the JavaOne pods for about a week now - they seem to be too small for the double holder, and too large for the single holder in my Senseo - should I be forcing my Senseo closed, and using the single holder, or using the double holder and getting weaker coffee?
(I posted this same question on the other JavaOne thread, I was also unable to email the company, firstname.lastname@example.org got kicked back)
Warning: I am a coffee wuss, who drinks coffee with half & half and sugar. I would love to hear what a more traditional coffee drinker thinks of the JavaOne pods.
I really like the JavaOne coffee. I have tried the Sumatran, the Costa Rican, the French Roast, and liked them all. You definitely need to use the smaller pod holder (the double just makes coffeeish water). I was most impressed though by their regular decaf. I've found that most of the decafs are awful, but this one actually tastes like coffee.
