More Reader Pod Reviews

Home Javaone

From Andy J:

"I'll review the JavaOne pods, the Baronet pods, and the podhead.com pods.

PodHead.com Thoughts

All pods came individually wrapped. In brief, I'd reccommend any one of them. Ordered some pods from podhead.com a few months ago 10 double pods for $7, received the shipment in about 4 days along with 4 free samples, 2 Kenya and 2 Milano. Bought the Colombian, Arabica Mix, Brasil, Kenya, and Mexico. The pods are a little small, 55mm, an included note informs you that for best results you should run some water through the large pod holder before inserting the pod. They're a little loose in the large holder, but I haven't had any problems with weak coffee. I've also wet the pod and used the small holder with good results, takes a little extra force to close it, but it works. Each variety was very good, the Brasil was my personal favorite, Arabica Mix my least favorite.

Bdbpodbx ThumbBaronet and JavaOne Thoughts

Since I was starting to run low, I ordered some JavaOne Kona(12 pods) and Costa Rican(14 pods) for $4.99 each, and Baronet Izzy's Blend(18 pods) for $6.29 from acsjava.com on Monday night. Came home Thursday night and they were waiting for me on my doorstep. The Kona is very good, nice light flavor, thick crema layer, pod is a little thicker than the Senseo pods, one pod in the small holder for an 8oz cup. Haven't tried the Costa Rican yet. The Baronet pods seem to be single pods, about the same size as the Senseo pods. No instructions on the box or their website as to how many to use. Again, a very good cup of coffee, nice crema layer. But since you need 2 pods per cup, I think they're a little on the expensive side.

Update: Why would you need 2 pods when our pods our 10 grams each? Writes in Joe Smalley from Baronet coffee. Good question! If Baronet pods are indeed 10g each - that should brew up a very nice cup of coffee with a single pod. Anyone else tried these?

The podhead pods contain 10gr of coffee, JavaOne are 9gr, and no idea about the Baronet. Also noticed that Maxwell House and Yuban are now making pods, although I haven't seen any in stores yet.

- Later. AndyJ"

I am still having trouble with my JavaOne pods, half the time I can't get the Senseo to seal right. I tried wetting the pod like Stan suggested, but the pod swelled and caused the biggest leak yet (Stan, thanks for trying to help, I appreciate your response, even if I can't get it to work) I wonder if JavaOne has redesigned their pods like CoolBeans did, and I got some old pods. After I force my way through these 4 boxes, I won't order JavaOne again unless they redesign their pod size - the quality of their coffee seems to be good, whne I can get the machine to seal around their chubby pods.

Try wetting the pod before brewing. Then use the single pod holder. Works for me.....

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?

JavaOne pods for the senseo....my favorite thus far. The Summatran is excellent. I like the house blend, but not the Breakfast blend. Good variety. Fits nice. So far the most consistent I've used (I have a homecafe system)
