Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff has brought to our attention new Senseo pods out in Europe. We're not sure when they'll be out in the US, but we would imagine Senseo has to release some new flavors this year and Colombia Blend coffee pods seem like a no brainer.
"Mystic Valley; Columbia Blend." I actually already saw them in Germany, but you could only buy them in combination with a machine..They should be available around May 2006, and I will be stocking them as soon as I can get my hands on them.

We're pretty excited to compare the Senseo Cappuccino coffee pods to the Home Cafe Cappuccino coffee pods. Priced at $19.99 for 40 Cappuccino coffee pods at Amazon.com and others, puts the price per cappuccino at $.50 cents. Not bad. We'll give you the full run down very soon and may even try to get one of these into some of the other single serve coffee pod machines.
Made from the finest gourmet beans, these single-serve coffee pods provide premium coffee sealed inside their own filter for a smooth and balanced taste every time. The Cappuccino coffee pods offer a rich, creamy, frothy layer that will be sure to satisfy the most discriminating cappuccino aficionado. Depending on personal preference, the pods can be doubled up for a stronger cup of coffee, and for mess-free disposal, the pods are virtually drip-free. Senseo coffee pods are also available in Dark Roast, Mild Roast, and Decaffeinated Medium Roast. Made specifically for the Senseo coffee machine, the four-pack includes 40 fresh and flavorful single-serve coffee pods.

Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff sent in some interesting news regarding new T-Pads (okay in the US we call them Pods not Pads) from Pickwick designed for Senseo. The kit even includes a tea pod holder designed to brew up a better cup of tea.
As of March 13, Senseo and Pickwick's latest addition for the Senseo will be available for purchase. They have created four different tea pods: Tempting Red, Early Grey, Minty Green, and Lemon & Lime. We will be offering a special starters set, which includes all the new flavors and a special T-Pod holder for the Senseo.

Engadget has an interesting interview with Cesar Vohringer, CTO of Philips who makes the Senseo single serve coffee maker. It's interesting how good quality consumer electronics equates to good coffee. There's also some interesting tidbits about their new Ambilight TV tech that puts ambient lights behind larger Plasma and LCD TVs for a better picture. How about putting some ambient lighting in my Senseo?
You mentioned one example right now -- the Senseo coffee maker, for instance, is an innovation of putting together available technologiesand making it easy, simple, friendly and of good quality for the consumers. But there’s nothing revolutionaryabout the technology the Senseo uses. You can say the proposition is innovative. Also with the Ambilight TV. It’s again putting togetheravailable technologies but providing the user with a viewing experience which he enjoys. And this came out of a lot ofconsumer research, out of our home lab – we have a home lab here in our Innovation Campus where we portray anumber of these innovative concepts, and we have people living in that for days and experiencing that and giving usfeedback. So I think that over the last few years there has been a lot of effort put in the company to take a usercentric innovation approach and to begin to balance the technology strength of the company with the consumer insight.

Home Cafe has tried this and now Senseo? We're pretty excited to get some of these and try them out. I would imagine this is powdered milk of some sort with the coffee mixed in like the Home Cafe pods. Could be good - could be...
These Cappuccino pods, made for the Senseo coffee maker, give you cappuccino that's full of taste with a smooth finish. Included in this package are 40 flavorful pods for a creamy cappuccino. Senseo's special packaging guarantees maximum freshness.
