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.

When it rains - it pours coffee pods! Thanks again to Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff for sending us what we can't get in the US - more Senseo coffee pods in different roasts. Earlier this year Senseo put out Brazil blend, Sumatra blend, and Kenya blend coffee pods in Europe. We're pretty excited to fire up our old long nosed Senseo and Bunn My Cafe and try out these new coffee pod blends.
- Senseo Brazil Blend coffeepods *NEW* A subtle, smooth coffee, made with the best Brazilian coffee beans
- Senseo Sumatra Blend coffeepods *NEW* A spicy, strong coffee, but at the same time sweet and light fruity. The coffee beans come from Mount Leuser, Sumatra.
- Senseo Kenya Blend coffeepods *NEW* A sweet and light fruity coffee. The beans come from the hills in Kenya.

Wendy of Typical Dutch Stuff has sent in these new pods that come in three new fruity flavors: Raving Reds (red fruits, spices, and vanilla), Lusty Lime (citrus fruits, vodka, and vanilla) and Summer Sins (orchard fruits, spices, and vanilla).

Leave it up to Philips to continue to do innovative things to get Senseo into the thoughts and minds of coffee drinkers everywhere. Right now you can get a FREE Senseo coffee maker by two methods:
- Visit one of the Drop the Drip Online Events and take your old coffee maker to the event and exchange it for a new Senseo single serve coffee pod brewer
- Or...you can take a picture of you or your spouse or anyone for that matter doing something funny and different with your old coffee machine. You then upload the picture at Drop The Drip online. Once the picture is approved you'll get a code to redeem and then receive a free Senseo.
We think we might exchange our old Senseo for a new one. We haven't had an old drip coffee maker for quite some time. :-)
Thanks to everyone for writing in and telling us about this killer promotion.

When we first mentioned this deal they had the Senseo uder the 7890/80 title, this has now been changed to the 7810/80 as this new Senseo is replacing the older model completely.

Another day and another gadget to put regular coffee in your single serve coffee brewer. We reviewed the Cafe Filter or Ecopad as it's now called so long ago and rarely if ever use it, but the MyPod might work a bit better. Amy Maxwell wrote in about the MyPod refillable coffee holder for Senseo and we think as long as it doesn't plug up and cause a pressure explosion - it could be worth trying out for 10 bucks.
This morning I brewed a cup of freshly roasted coffee1 in my Senseo. Instead of using a plastic Ecopad, I used a Presto MyPod refillable coffee holder. The MyPod is designed to replace the Phillips Senseo pod holder. It comes with the refillable coffee holder, 100 coffee filters, a compacting cover and a coffee scoop. The EcoPad is a plastic ‘pod’ that you fill with coffee grounds then put in your Senseo two pod holder. The MyPod is different because it replaces the pod holder not the pod.
We haven't been able to find these for sale anywhere online, but Amy has an ebay auction or two up. Let us know if you've tried these or know where we could pick one up for review.

We highly recommend this reader write in from Senseo. In what can only be called the first "single serve coffee acid trip" we've seen and taken for ourselves to date, the new Senseo Forbidden Fruits allows you to upload a picture of yourself or favorite coffee maker (I made my head a Grindmaster single serve coffee brewer) and then create a set of disco dance moves with an avatar you can customize as well. WE ARE NOT MAKING THIS UP! It's totally fun and you should try it out. You'll need to know a little dutch, french, or german but we had no problem just clicking buttons and having a good time.

Umm....wow. Just when you think Senseo isn't the "world" leader in single serve coffee machines - you go and read something like this. Senseo is perhaps a little more popular in Europe, but it has also made a big splash here in the US. With 10 million Senseo single serve machines world wide, it's no wonder we are seeing more and more coffee pods and competition to this rather large and growing market we call Single Serve Coffee.
"Reaching ten million in sales just four years after the launch is great news," said Andrea Ragnetti, CMO, "and is proof that products that have been created in line with our brand positioning of 'sense and simplicity' - easy to experience, designed around the user and advanced - are what consumers want. The launch of the SENSEO was a response to the changing lives of our customers, who are finding their lives busier than ever. With the SENSEO they are guaranteed a perfect freshly brewed cup of coffee at the touch of a button with greater ease and convenience than more traditional methods, produced by a machine that looks sleek and modern."

Senseo has released new colored glass mugs to match their European Forbidden Fruit flavors. We covered the new Forbidden Fruit flavored coffee pods earlier this Summer. We think it's pretty neat to have a matching set of glass mugs for new coffee pod flavors. Perhaps we can get a blueberry colored coffee mug for all the blueberry coffee we drink?
We're also not sure why more people don't drink their single serve coffee from clear mugs. Last year we discovered the magic of the clear mug. It really changes the single serve coffee drinking equation because you can really SEE what single serve coffee you're drinking.
