Review: Senseo 10 Percent Kona Coffee Blend Pods

Review Single Serve Coffee senseo_kona_pods.jpg

Senseo was kind enough to send over a sample bag of their new 10% Kona Coffee Blend coffee pods to review, and we're glad they did. We've been anticipating how good these coffee pods would and could be, and are pleased to say up front - pretty darn good (think Larry David saying that). Kona Coffee tends to be milder and easier on the stomach and palette, and the 10% Kona Coffee blend coffee pods are no exception.


We fired up our original Senseo single serve coffee maker (yes the one we launched the site with just over 5 years ago), and used the double cup setting. The coffee produced had the classic Senseo froth, and the aroma was mild.
  • Aroma - 7 - Nothing great here but nothing bad either - not very strong.
  • Acidity - 7 - Low acidity and easy on the stomach.
  • Body - 8 - Medium body with a milder finish.
  • Flavor - 7 - Round and almost sweet with an aftertaste of rich flavor.
  • Mouth Feel - 8 - Smooth - what else is there to say this is good stuff.
  • Coffee Drinker - Suited for any coffee drinker from light to dark. We think you'll be pleased.

Overall Rating: 88 - Good


Overall we think you'll like the Senseo 10% Kona Coffee Blend coffee pods, and we think the wide range of coffee drinkers that will enjoy this coffee makes the Kona blend coffee pods a winner. The 10% Kona Blend coffee pods from Senseo will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, simplehuman, Krups 1010 , GPOD, Home Cafe, Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic, Melitta MES5B Javapod, and other single serve coffee pod makers.

Realy do like your web site,lots of info on everything. Just wanted to update my opinion on the Cuisinart SS700 v the Breville. Hated to return the Breville but the noise finally got to me. Bed Bath & Beyond accepted my return and gave me the new Cuisinart SS700. Not as attractive as the Breville and no measuring spoon but that 80 oz reservoir and how nice and QUIET it was.....that won me over.

Larry David would say... "pretty pretty pretty good" not "pretty darn good" - come on, get your pop culture correct!!
