Could the maker of the Melitta Single Serve Coffee maker be in trouble? Will this pave the way for Keurig and Senseo?
"Stock in Lake Forest-based Salton Inc., distributor of the popular George Foreman grill and Westinghouse home appliances, plummeted 50 percent after the company said lagging sales will force it to restructure its U.S. operations and reduce marketing costs.
Salton has long depended on the Foreman grill, whose sales have dropped in the United States as the product ages, while overseas they've grown. The company recently added new product lines, including a single-serve coffee maker and a cordless vacuum. It also markets other home appliance, lighting, personal care and wellness products under the Westinghouse, Toastmaster, Melitta and Stiffel brands.
Update: Salton replacement parts and owners manuals can be ordered at 800-233-9054 or by emailing email@example.com
A good article on the new Single Serve Coffee craze...

Thanks for picking us up!
"LibertarianJackass.com I LOVE COFFEE Now, the single cup coffee craze hits."
After looking at the search items used to find Single Serve Coffee - a great deal of people are coming in on Senceo - not Senseo. I think Philips has the classic - how do you spell their new machine problem.

A 3 day trial is available for Keurig. You can sign up and have them put one in for a few days and see if it works out. Well - I have to say...I'm game.
Well - now I've heard everything about one cup coffee/single serve coffee...everything!
"Senseo has come on "faster than the adoption of the DVD, faster than the mobile phone," declared Philipe Schaillee, vice president of marketing for Sara Lee Coffee and Tea Consumer Brands, whose Belgium-based division Douwe Egberts makes the coffee pods for Senseo."
I have to admit it - after readin this press release from Harods - I wanted to experience Senseo for the first time in a Harod's window. Full review on Senseo coming up - but this article...well...press release...takes me back...pure bliss...and more improtantly - GREAT COFFEE.
"For the first time ever, from the 19 - 24 April, Harrods customers will be able to step inside a Harrods window, watching the world go by, whilst sipping a Senseo(R) coffee. This unique opportunity is to celebrate the UK launch of the revolutionary Senseo(R) coffee system by Douwe Egberts and Philips. Shoppers will be able to sample Senseo(R) coffee whilst sitting in a specially created living room set in the Brompton Road windows."PR Newswire - A United Business Media Company

Epinions has a great little (okay - not so little) write up on how to create your own coffee pods for the Senseo Single Serve Machine.
"The Bottom Line You can produce your own coffee pads. Here's how: The utterly unofficial and unauthorised guide to the how & why, the how & why not; revealing the secret tricks of coffee pad creation."Epinions.com - How to create your own Senseo coffee pads
One-cup wonders may be the next big thing. I would have to agree. The main reason I got a Single Serve Coffee machine was the fact that I either drank the entire 12 cup pot - or - the coffee after the first cup wasn't really that good. I tried carafes - hot water machines - you name it.
"That's the prediction from many in the industry who say single-serve coffeemakers could brew the biggest revolution in homemade java since the advent of automatic drip in the early 1970s. The bold, new trend: One cup at a time."
