Review: Timothy's Rainforest Espresso Coffee Pods for Senseo, Home Cafe, & Other Single Serve Coffee Makers
Timothy's has been making great coffee in the US and Canada for quite awhile and last year we were very excited to be able to get their coffee at home using K-Cups and our Keurig B50 brewer. Now we're even more excited to be able to use their coffees in our coffee pod brewers. The new Timothy's coffee pods will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers.
The coffee used in Timothy's Rainforest Espresso comes from 100% Rainforest Alliance certified beans, sourced from a farm in Brazil. Certification protects workers. Certified farms hire locally, pay fair wages, and ensure safe working conditions and access to clean drinking water and proper sanitary facilities. In all, more than 50,000 farm families are enjoying the benefits of the program.
Tasting Timothy's Rainforest Espresso Coffee Pods
We sampled the coffee pods in the Bunn My Cafe, Krups, Grindmaster, and Senseo and the results were similar. We used a double cup setting or 7-8 oz setting depending on the single serve coffee machine we used. Since the Timothy's pods weigh in at 9.5 grams - you'll also need to use your double pod holder and pre-moisten in the Senseo and Grindmaster.
How does the coffee taste? Like the Timothy's Rainforest Espresso K-Cups for your Keurig Brewer, this is very good coffee - with a rich flavor and velvety finish. Each sip is a interesting as the last sip and the overall impression you get is of a medium-dark cup of coffee that has a hint of chocolate.
We can't but recommend trying the Timothy's Rainforest Espresso Coffee pods. A nice dark - yet sweet tasting coffee with a great finish.
Timothy's Rainforest Espresso coffee pods come packed 25 to a box for $7.50-$9.99 a box depending on where you shop online.

I got four boxes of Timothy's, and I would not consider them appropriate for the Senseo - they are too big for the single pod holder (I have been wetting them and forcing the pod holder shut, and holding the top down to avoid explosion). When I've used the double holder, wetting and packing into the botom, half the time I get a weak cup from water bypassing the pod.
The coffee, however, is really good, so I'm dealing with the hassle. I think that these pods, or any pods of this design (slightly smaller around, and fatter thru the middle)should not be labled as compatible with the Senseo. Had these pods been slightly larger in diameter, they still would have fit in the Senseo single holders, and would have been thin enough to eliminate the explosion problem.
Sorry for the rant.
