Melitta Padfilter - Refillable Coffee Pod Filter for the Senseo

B000Fovqqi.01-Auhit9Psaa36E.Pt02. Ss400 Sclzzzzzzz V51852672 -1

Much like the Eco-Pod Reusable coffee filter for Senseo, the Melitta Padfilter gives you the freedom to use your Senseo (or Senseo pod sized crème machine) with all types of ground coffee in your machine. We like the fact the Melitta Padfilter has a hinge top along with what does in fact look like thicker plastic. We'll be getting one of these very soon and will have a full brew off between the two.

Simply fill the Melitta Padfilter, place it in the 2 pod holder of the Senseo machine and hit the coffee button! The Melitta Padfilters are durable, easily in use and dishwasher safe. Best of all it is made by a coffee company you know and trust, Melitta! The Melitta Padfilter is made better and stronger than the Ecopad or Quickcup. It also uses a patented hinged top that is easy to open, quick to close and you won't lose your pod top like you can with the Ecopad and Quickcup.

Note: the Melitta Padfilter cannot be returned, so make sure you understand what you are buying. It is made to fit the Senseo Coffee machine and may not fit other brands.

Aloha Island Coffee Co. 100% Kona Coffee Pods Arrive for Review

Img 2849

How time flies here at Single Serve Coffee. Nearly 2 years ago we reviewed the 100% Kona Coffee pods from Aloha Island Coffee, and we thought it was time that we revisited these yummy coffee pods and see if we were - well - still in love. We received 3 different coffee pod packs of their coffee pods, and will be sampling these in your Senseo, Bunn MCP My Cafe, Krups KP1010 Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers.

We are anxious to try the new flavors of Light roast, Medium roast, Dark roast, Espresso roast, Decaf, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, and Chocolate Macadamia Nut coffee pods. Most of these are a blend of 20% Kona and 80% Hawaiian Coffees, however we did receive their Platinum 100% Kona Coffee pods in a 10 gram size.

Green Mountain French Roast Coffee Pods for Senseo and Home Cafe

Gmpods has the latest coffee pod offerings from Green Mountain. We've tried the French Roast coffee pods and really like them. The coffee is just as strong, deep, dark, and rich when compared to a similiar cup of drip or k-cup french roast. We recommend wetting your pods a bit before brewing to get the best seal.

Note these are for your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers. Since these are "Coffee Pods" they will not work in your Keurig single serve coffee brewers.

Get European Senseo Coffee Pods at Typical Dutch Stuff

testt_typcial.jpgWe've recently gotten a bunch of emails regarding how to get other Senseo coffee pods from our European cousins and we know of one place that you can do such a thing: Typical Dutch Stuff. Typical Dutch Stuff has a nearly every European coffee pod that will work in not just your Senseo single serve coffee maker but also your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers.

From Typical Dutch Stuff: All the pods we offer have the same diameter (62mm) as the original Douwe Egberts pods. Please be careful with ordering pods from other brands that are not showed on this website. If the diameter of a pod is slightly different, your coffee probably will end up watery and not worth your money. Also, all of our pods are suitable for most single serve coffee makers.

Make Your Own Single Serve Coffee Pods

We're not sure where this person got the required tools they're using to smoosh and turn the coffee into a coffee pod, but the general idea is there from watching the video.

Here are the steps: Get something to hold a traditional coffee filter, fill it with about an ounce of coffee, get another cup sized thing to turn and smoosh the coffee filter into place, and then try it out in your Senseo double cup holder or other single serve coffee maker.

A word of caution: Just like when using the Eco-Pad reuseable coffee filter, getting any amount of ground coffee caught in the double-pod holder where the coffee comes out in the bottom can lead to a plugged coffee holder and exploding single serve coffee maker. Try any of these methods with EXTREME caution.

Wall Street Journal Notes Growth In Coffee Pod Sales

Pod62Very very nice. It's good to see the coffee pod market expanding after things being slow to rise over the past year. We're pretty sure given how excited anyone who gets a single serve coffee maker is that eventually the viralness of the coffee pod and k-cup will just start to spiral in popularity. LONG LIVE THE COFFEE POD!

An article in the July 19 edition of The Wall Street Journal noted that coffee pod use in the U.S. is rising, both in the office and at home. The article quoted Ted Lingle, executive director of the Specialty Coffee Association of America, saying that pods account for less than 5 percent of U.S. coffee consumption but have the potential to include 25 percent. The article quotes people from Baronet Coffee, Hartford, Conn., Sara Lee Corp. Nestlé and Keurig. The article noted that pod use is rising after some initial missteps, but that the benefits are being realized by consumers, both in the office and at home.

Review: Nescafe Cappuccino Coffee Pods for Senseo

Review from Single Serve - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 2556Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff has sent over the newly released Nescafe Coffee Pods with toppings. These new pods are a totally new concept because each box contains 8 individually wrapped coffee pods and 8 individually wrapped toppings. You place the pod in the machine and the topping in your cup. You then stir through the coffee when it is still brewing and enjoy a cappuccino, cafe au lait, or chocolate coffee, for only €0.62 or roughly 0.74 USD a cup before shipping. These coffee pods will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Krups Home Cafe, and simplehuman single serve coffee pod brewers.

Img 2555There are four flavors available: Caffe Cioccolato (chocolate), Cappucino, Cappucino Decaf, and Cafe au Lait. The

We've been sampling the three different flavors over the past few weeks and have to say this is much better than the Senseo Cappuccino or the Home Cafe Cappuccino. The toppings are meant to be inserted into the cup prior to brewing. Putting them in at the end of a brew cycle produces less than stunning results. We often found that using the entire contents of the toppings bag was also too much.

We've provided several pictures and a video to show you how the mixture brews up in our Blue Senseo Coffee maker.
