Coffeeduck Permanent Refillable Filter for the Orginal Senseo

CoffeeDuck? The name does not inspire confidence, but if you're looking to use your own ground coffee with your Senseo, this duck may do the trick. But buyer beware, the CoffeeDuck does not work with the Senseo Supreme or Senseo Deluxe, it only works with the original Senseo.

The CoffeeDuck will allow you to use whatever coffee you like, and can also be used with one or two regular paper coffee pods, so if you ever lose your Senseo pod holders, you can still make pod coffee. For best results, they recommend using a fine grind when using ground coffee with the CoffeeDuck.

We'll have to order the "duck" and see how good of a job it does.

I have used the 4-cup basket filters to create my own pods for over five years. I first wrap the paper filter around the bottom of a jar that fits exactly into the pod holder. Then, I squeeze the paper sides such that the filter stands up. I add the coffee, place it in the pod holder, then fold down the sides and close the lid. It works well, and you get the foam. Just one word of caution, if only one particle of coffee slips past, it can clog the tiny hold through which the coffee flows. This stops the brewing, and you have to wait for the pressure to dissipate.

I have been using it for the past 6 months and I am entirely satisfied. It is much better than the Melita adapter, which does not always fit properly.

As far as the taste is concerned, there is no difference between the coffeeduck and an original pods. I have actually done a blind test: I opened a pod and put the coffee in the coffeeduck. The coffee had exactly the same taste, at least no one in the panel could find a difference.

I did also the test between a Nespresso and Senseo: I put the coffee from a Nespresso pod into the coffeeduck: no difference.

My conclusion is that the quality of coffee depends mainly on the coffee you put in your machine.

The "K" and "T" types of single serve coffee makers have you tied to buying their coffee system. The pods have at least 3 methods of using coffee. You can use the pod, make your own pod {my preference) or use the duck. I make my own pod and use cuban finely ground coffee. While K cup coffee tastes great, I had some at Sur La Table in Sarasota last weekend, I like choosing my own coffee. Estrella Dorada from Colombia is among my favorites.

I have found the one I am working with to be a real hassle staying tight to my machine. I get a lot of grounds in the coffee which is not a Senseo hallmark.

Have one and I'm not super impressed. It's rather cheaply made, and there is always a mess of spilled coffee grounds and water after a brewing session. I think the coffee was better from pods, and certainly less messy. The gadget is also rather cheaply made. Mine has already lost it's long handle, and been stuck back together. It is necessary to tap it on the can to remove the sloppy wet gtounds, and water spills all over if you jiggle it. After a tap I had to fish the cup part out of the trash!! Also, if you MUST have the wasteful and messy foam or crema, don't buy this. It does not make one bit of foam, although this does not break my heart at all!!

It will save money, but payout may take a while. I think I will stick to pods after I use up my ground coffee.

I sell the ducks! Please contact me for more details.

In the past I have roasted, ground and brewed my own coffee - and am used to a great cup. To simplify my life, I purchased a Senseo, and have since been testing various pods and options to the pods. After attempting a couple dozen cups on five different grinds, I still cannot get a cup of coffee with the duck that begins to approach what I get from the pods. I have followed all directions, and viewed postings on Amazon and such, but to no avail.

If someone can enlighten me, I would be grateful. But so far, no luck with the duck.

I got one of these a couple weeks ago. So far it's done a pretty good job of making coffee, but I don't think my current coffee grinder is up to the task of making the fine and uniform grind that would work best. I'll save my other comments for when the actual review comes in!

Oooh! I look forward to a review. A bunch of people got me ground Starbucks for christmas and I would rather use my Senseo than dragging out my Cuisinart.
