Making a Cup of Senseo Coffee

Brewing a cup of Senseo coffee is pretty darn easy. You simply fill up the water, put in the pods, put the cup under the spout, and push the brew button. But - what does that coffee look like? I brewed a nice cup of dark roast coffee for you to see the color and body of the coffee, the froth, and then the final mixed cup of cream and sugar. You'll quickly see that even after the cup is brewed the froth is very rich and thick.

Each of the thumbnails below holds a small avi video clip. I apologize in advance for the first two not being rotated properly - but we're on a budget at Single Serve :-) You'll need Quicktime from Apple or Windows Media Player.

Cafe-Filter - Reusable Senseo Coffee Filter

e6_1d.jpgThe debate always seems to be when I mention getting a pod based machine to friends who are coffee drinkers, "I would hate being locked in. I would hate to not have the choice of what coffee I would drink." Well - the debate will soon be over.

I also want to point out that I don't believe Senseo or any of these machines should be a total replacement to your existing coffee setup. The fact is - I have both a Cuisineart and grinder for those days I want a pot of coffee and the Senseo. And I'll be honest - I LOVE THE SENSEO COFFEE. In any hoots - more on that debate later - this replacement filter looks to solve you being able to use your own coffee. It will be interesting to see if it still makes a CREMA like coffee with other beans or will it just make a cup of coffee. I've contacted the company and I'll be ordering one of these to review on Single Serve Coffee. Thanks to Scott Geiger for sending this in:

The Cafe-filter new permanent filter for use with, for example, the Philips Senseo coffeemachines. This filter pays itself back, because you'll save on your expenses with every cup of coffee. Instead of the well-known Coffeepads, you can use the kind of coffee you like so much. For example, you can grind your own coffeebeans. As you can see, now you are able to make that fresh cup of coffee with that specific taste you always liked that much. But the most important however, you can still enjoy that specific layer of cream that makes the coffee so unique!

Update: This is now available in the form of the Eco-Pod Reuseable filter and available at

Senseo or Senceo?

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.

Senseo Adption Faster than DVD Adoption?

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."

Senseo Harods Style

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 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."
