Use Your Own Coffee with My Pod Refillable Holder for Senseo

B000Biu088.01. Sclzzzzzzz 8494D250Fca02671F0527010.LInterest in using your own coffee with your single serve coffee maker seems to start when you first receive it and when you really want to make a cup of coffee you can't get in pod form yet - like Starbucks or Pete's coffees.

It is It's nice to see Amazon.com finally pick up this refillable holder for Senseo. Unlike the Ecopad which uses a filter basket, this one uses filters. So after 100 uses you're going to need to get more filters to use with the My Pod. Note: This for use with Phillips Senseo pod coffee maker models only as is the Ecopad. It comes with one podholder, a coffee scoop and 100 filters.

Even though the MyPod seems to get mixed reviews, I find it to be amazing. It's a fantastic product that really extends the capability of the Senseo. You may scoff, but I like Dunkin Donuts coffee. Dunkin Donuts grounds + MyPod + Senseo = awesome. I've previously never been able to brew Dunkin Donuts coffee at home that actually TASTES like Dunkin Donuts coffee. Now I have it.

Not only will this save me money, but it will save pounds as well, as I won't be tempted to get a donut with my coffee if I had to visit the store.

Despite some of the unenthusiastic reviews, I had to try MyPod for myself, for instead of going strictly by the experiences of others, I always like to make my own mistakes. In this instance, I am glad I listened to my bull-headed Inner Moron; the MyPod (for Senseo)is darned good. Not perfect, but I have thanked GOD (and Presto!) for it when I am out of "good" (mail-order) pods, and my Target has no Archer Farms in stock. It takes a few times to get a feel for how to get the best coffee out of it. Frankly, my heart sank when I saw the first cup I made with the thing, but now I am going great guns with it. 4 oz setting only, and take my cup out from under the spout a few seconds early, when it starts flowing more "clear" than "brown", for it's true, a little too much water comes out. Also true: No Senseo froth. :-( But the coffee is delicious. My favorite blend of fresh-ground tastes absolutely marvelous--lively and robust, easily as good or even better than my favorite coffeemaker made when it was at its very best. As for Espresso Grind--actually, I found that the MyPod worked poorly with the recommended "drip" grind--a finer grind is needed. Besides my fresh ground, I've been using some Illy Espresso, and it is surprisingly excellent. A key point is that you must be scrupulous about making sure you don't get stray grounds--not one grain- in your machine. Overall I prefer the simplicity, tidiness, and instant gratificationn of a pod. But when that's not an option, the MyPod makes awesome coffee w/my Senseo machine. If I'm using my favorite coffee blend, I prefer the MyPod coffee to traditionally-made coffee--it is much fresher tasting.

Being a new Senseo owner, this looks really cool, but some of the reviews on Amazon aren't that great. I guess I'll stick to the commercial pods for a while.

Eco pad works much better but is more fragile.

MyPod produces no crema, overflows once in awhile (even on new Senseo), requires filters, and cannot use espresso grind.

you need to use the one cup button to prevent overflow. i use this instead of pods as the coffee is much better.

Hmmm - maybe there was something that I was doing wrong? Thanks.

I am using the new Senseo from "Drop the Drip" and have not had any problems with overflow.

I bought one of these at a local variety store. When I used it with the newer Senseo from "Drop the Drip" and every time it would overflow my 10oz cup and keep going! I had to manually stop the pump by pressing the power button. Otherwise, it acted like it would drain the entire water reservoir. I followed the instructions to the "T" several times and the same result. I wonder if there is a backpressure requirement on the newer Senseos? I returned it to the store and got my money back. Bummer :-(

I'll try this out when I receive mine.

This looks like it would probably also work with the Simplehuman and Melitta brewers from the photos on the Amazon site. I wonder if anyone has seen how it fits? When is Wal-mart going to carry this?

I recently picked this up at Walmart. I like it. I followed suggestions from the forums - wet the filter, use 1 1/2 scoops and the one cup button. It produces between 3/4 cup and 1 cup of coffee. Works for me!
