I highly recommend the Extra Large Water Tank for Senseo if you've received a Senseo that is not from Sam's Club (they come with it). If you're like me, initially you drink a cup of Senseo - then it leads to 2 - then 3 - then 4. I love the coffee but I hate refilling the tank.

We are pretty sure it's hard to find everything you need for that perfect Single Serve Coffee holiday gift, so thanks to over 8 months of hard work, we have compiled what we think is a nearly complete list of things you can buy for any Single Serve Coffee lover or soon to be converted, drip coffee kind of person. Below you will find links to all the machines in this category along with links to pods, gadgets, accessories - you name it - it's down there.
If you don't find it below however, you may also want to read our reviews. Many of the items we have given coverage over the past year need to be ordered direct from those merchants including the Cafe Filter, Cappucinno Pods for Home Cafe, and others. You should read about the tradeoffs each machine has to offer and what the coffee pod/cup system will mean to your potential giftee.
Also, be careful of merchants over the holidays that don't have good feedback here on the site. If you are going to order pods from abroad - check out our coffee pods section and read up on the merchants who have done a good job with shipping and those who haven't.
And since this is coming out before the "thankful" holiday - we want to give a big thanks to our loyal readers, commenters, advertisers, and anyone who has helped us over the past 8 months to become the premiere source of Single Serve Coffee news. Without all of you - this site would simply be a static set of news, and not the interactive-exciting coffee laced place it has become. Thank you all again.

If you really want to buy a Senseo for your loved one (and we suggest we do) - Phillips is offering a $20 dollar rebate on their $70 dollar machine - roughly making it $50 or less at most online stores. In our opinion - that's a total steal.
Imagine Christmas morning, you come down to the Christmas tree - and someone you love (and live with) gets a Senseo. Next for breakfast you will then get the most perfect cup of coffee ever. Do it. Buy the Senseo. You will not be sorry. OH! Imagine Senseo Single Serve Coffee with your New Years hangover....oooh!

Senseo in 3D anyone? Wild! The folks at Rich 3D have created an interactive 3D Senseo for you to play with. Check it out!!!
"The massive Dutch electronics firm, Phillips is rolling out their unique coffeemaker, Senseo, across North America and Europe. Koen's work at Xfer 3D Studio led his team to develop a working example. The North American office of Philips loves the effort and is positioning to compliment sales and marketing effort of the product with this."

Can you say beautiful? Wow. ANd supposedly improved? How do you impreove on Senseo? Well brushed aluminum is a start, and look at the controls? Very nice. Here's to hoping this comes out in the states as well.
Translated from Dutch:
"These newest Senseo® are not only a hoogstandje in the field of design, also the apparatus geruislozer is and qualitatively improves then the earlier versions.
With its very tight lines and thanks to the use of high-quality brushed aluminium a powerful and unique irradiation has these new Senseo®!
AS FROM!!! DELIVERABLE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOVEMBER

Just to let anyone know who is still interested in finding someone who will ship these to North America, I have found a Dutch website that will do so. They provide a variety of payment options, including paypal. Just look under the section "Senseo Coffee", and it is the first item listed. The cost of the filter is 20 EURO. In Holland, there are also some new flavours of Senseo coffee pods available that are not available in North America. Those can be found in this section as well. Hope this helps!

Okay - we'll admit it. There's not a great deal to review when it comes to an Extra Large Reservoir for any coffee maker, except the fact that this accessory makes sense. Buy it. If you own a Senseo and enjoy the coffee, I'm pretty sure by now you are tired of refilling it. The Extra Large Reservoir holds 10 cups of water, and fit the Senseo perfectly. I really can't think of anything else to add even water - because my reservoir is only half full after brewing 5 cups of delicious dark roast Senseo coffee.

Okay. I can't make heads or pods of this press release. Are they K-CUPs or PODS? Please read it and let me know what you think. I'm going to contact Green Mountain and get to the top of this.
"All four Green Mountain coffee varieties packaged in pods are Fair Trade Certified, which guarantees the small-scale farmers who grew this coffee with a fair price for their crop. The Fair Trade Certified pod offerings from Green Mountain Coffee include Breakfast Blend, French Roast, House Blend Decaf, and Colombian coffee.
