Senseo Cucina Edition Coming to Europe

Wendy from Typical Dutch Stuff has sent in news that Philips will be making a Cucina version of their popular Senseo single serve coffee maker in Europe. That also means if you want one - you could order it from Typical Dutch Stuff!

The cucina set of appliances look to have a similiar palette in the brown/white set of colors. I hope Philips brings some more colors to the US soon.

Baronet Coffee Pods for Senseo Fair Trade Coffee Pod Review

topnav_logo.gifI've been sampling all of the Baronet pods over the last couple of weeks and I have to say - I am really enjoying all of the pod flavors they offer.

The Fair Trade Pods though hit a very near and dear note on the coffee pod front. If you don't know what Fairtrade coffee is then you're missing out on an opportunity to buy coffee that supports small coffee farmers the world over.

"Fair Trade means an equitable and fair partnership between consumers in North America and producers in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The chief concern of the Fair Trade movement has been to ensure that the vast majority of the world's coffee farmers (who are small holders) get a fair price for their harvests in order to achieve a decent living wage. Fair Trade guarantees to poor farmers organized in cooperatives around the world: a living wage (minimum price of $1.26/pound regardless of the volatile market); much needed credit at fair prices; and long term relationships.

I'm not going to go on and on - but I care about the people that produce the coffee that I make. Starbucks participates in brewing and providing Fair Trade coffee - and when I go to Starbucks I insist on Fair Trade coffee for any of the barista beverages they make for me. It's nice to know the folks at Baronet have provided a Fair Trade blend to brew in our single serve coffee makers.

Senseo Coffee Glass Original Senseo Coffee Glass

kop1.jpgI can't tell you how amazing a cup of Senseo coffee is after until you get a clear glass coffee mug to brew it in. We've done nearly every review with a Bodum clear mug, but I would rather have this Senseo branded mug for the Senseo reviews. Typical Dutch stuff carries such an item. Get one. You won't be sorry after you see that rich crema layer of Senseo coffee floating on a top of perfect single serve coffee.

Senseo Gaining Ground

"It's a small step from beer to coffee: Senseo, Philips and Sara Lee's BRANDED BRANDS coffee machine, is still going strong. After selling millions of machines in Europe (25% of all Dutch households now have one!), Senseo last year took on the US market, where it has sold 300,000 coffee makers since Spring 2004, and is now available in Australia as well. And while partner Sara Lee is still making hundreds of millions of dollars from selling standard Senseo coffee pads, there's a careful move towards NOUVEAU NICHE, too: Philips recently introduced the Silver Senseo, an aluminum edition selling for EUR 169 (USD 225 / GBP 120), versus EUR 69 for the MASS CLASS version. Sara Lee has also extended the range of its coffee pads, from the original 5 flavors (mild roast, regular, dark roast, decaf, mocha gourmet) to the more upscale City Sensations (Milano, Rio, Vienna, Sydney) and the Senseo Selection (Sunset Hills Kenya, Highland Spice Sumatra, Mountain Breeze Brazil). The new pods cost up to twice as much as the standard ones."

New Senseo Pod Flavors - Irish Creme, Hazlenut, and Vanilla!

Finally! Senseo has new flavors from Europe! Just released today in the US - the three new flavors match their european cousins by being named after cities. As with every launch - there seems to be no pods available to order at the Senseo Store or Amazon - even though there are links to both. Hmmm...Well - we will send a few emails and see if we can get these babies for a review ASAP!

• Irish Creme (Killarney) for Senseo
• Hazlenut (Vienna) for Senseo
• French Vanilla (Paris) for Senseo

Sarah Lee Sticks with Senseo

No surprise. But what is surprising - I had no idea that Sara Lee had brands like Wonderbra and Hanes. Single Serve underwear??? I think I'm onto something!

"Coffee brands Senseo, a fast-growing, single-serve coffee product, and Douwe Egberts, a popular brand in Europe."

Ecopad the Refillable Coffee-pad for the Senseo

B0007INM5A.01-A2ZXQXAHVSW4G5._SCMZZZZZZZ_.jpgFinally! A resueable filter made for the Senseo and sold in the the US! No overseas shipping! It's very much like the Cafe Filter - we reviewed it and thought well - very nice addition.

"I'm pleased to say - this thing rocks! It not only allows you to make a cup of coffee with whatever coffee you choose - it totally makes the Senseo the only single serve coffee machine that takes pods (I'm going to see if this works in the Home Café this week) and regular coffee. "

Check it out!

  • Dishwasher safe
  • Use any ground coffee
  • Environment-friendly
  • Preserves the rich creamy foam
