Riddle me this...I can't really tell what's going on in this article/ramble from a bunch of women in the Pawtucket Times - but it's funny and informative. I think they pick a product and just talk about it as if they were on a radio show? Wild.
The Pawtucket Times: "Bonnie: Something's brewing in coffee making that's as revolutionary as the Mr. Coffee drip coffeemaker was in the '70s. I'm talking about the new machines that use single-cup filters (aka pods) to take the guesswork out of preparing coffee one or two cups at a time."

The New York Times has a killer article on the single serve craze. They cover not ony Senseo - but Nespresso and others. A special thanks to Emmy Abram for sending this in.
"Before leaving for work from her home in the Maryland suburbs, Elisa Diehl likes to have a cup of espresso. But she doesn't have the patience to grind and measure beans for her Nespresso machine, so she uses "pods" â€” single doses of premeasured coffee in thimble-shape capsules, which she orders by phone or on the Web."

Steve Garfield of Off On a Tangent fame - writes in that his 79 year old mother - Mildred Garfield has in fact received a Senseo from her son Steve. She loves it!!! She claims that she is the oldest person blogging on the web, if that holds true - she may in fact be able to add that she is the oldest Senseo reviewer on the web as well.
"I HAVE A NEW COFFEE MACHINE
Here I am writing about coffee again. I had a birthday last week and my son and daughter in-law gave me a Senseo Coffee Machine. With this product you can have a perfect cup of coffee every time. You can make one cup, two cups or one mug in just a few seconds. Another great feature about this coffemaker is there's no pot to wash, you just have to rinse the coffee pod holder. "

My mom sent me photos of the Large Reservoir Senseo she just bought at Sam's Club. Seems to cost $69.97 - however she got it for $59.97 - it was the price leader for the day!!!
Includes the following:
Over-sized water reservoir, so several cups can be made
Three bags of coffee pods included
Note the model number is also different as well - the standard Senseo is the HD7810. Thanks to Nadiene Brewer (MY MOM!!!) for sending this in.

The Home Cafe brewer continues to get more coffee brands behind it. This article outlines some interesting background on the coffee maker. It's also quite interesting to see how the Keurig has high end coffee in its lineup and the Home Cafe brewer has more "grocery" branded coffee. I wonder who will win?
"In an era of caffeine-fuelled international tension, it is no surprise that Mister Coffee (the coffee service) gets on the nerves of Mr. Coffee (the coffee machine). Now this.
Bob Hale, the tinkering mind behind Toronto-based Mister Coffee & Services Inc., is betting millions of dollars on a machine he hopes will make you a really drinkable cup of coffee at the office -- a cup at a time, any time.

Lisa writes us with a question we have all been trying to anwer...
"I am just now researching the single-serving coffee maker. I am interested to know which one folks think is the best regardless of price. I have been looking at the senseo and the B&D HCC100. They both seem to have issues. Does anyone know of one that is "perfect?"
What do you think? Comments below...
