Summary: Too bad they don't make these any more, because this is the best single-serve coffee maker I've had. Brews quickly, coffee is really hot, and you can buy decent coffee pods for it. Was not a fan of the big-name cup brewers, mostly due to cost and size. The only downsides to the Senseo are (1) if you like cups of coffee larger than 6 oz and/or like your coffee strong, you have to use two pods per cup, which adds up; and (b)the brewer is a bit on the loud side once it...
Summary: Loved the Senseo coffee maker. Already have two and wanted to get one for my daughter. Since coffee pot is no longer sold at Senseo, decided to buy one on eBay. Of all the coffee makers I have, I find the Senseo to be the best as far as making coffee close to a cappuchino that you buy at a restaurant or coffee place. The foam on top of coffee really makes coffee taste great and so easy to make.
If you like espresso strength, buy an espresso machine.

Summary: Like the coffee maker, wish it brewed a stronger cup of coffee however. I will have to try making my own pods using my own strength coffee as the pods you buy from Senseo are not strong enough.
Summary: I have used my Senseo Coffee Maker for years. I also own a Tassimo and my mom and dad have a Keurig, but I think the Senseo makes the best tasting cup of coffee. It's more like a true Espresso and even has the foam/crema on top. I love it! The downside is that it isn't as 'neat' as the others- the pods are squishy and wet when you remove them. The other downside is that, depending on where you live, the Senseo Pods are becoming hard to find.
Super Easy, Great Tasting Coffee...and you can sneak and make your own pods

Summary: Love this coffee maker - it makes a really good cup of coffee in about one minute! Just fill the resevoir in the back with a little bit of water, wait about 30 seconds for it to heat up, and with the press of a button, the coffee comes out with a nice froth on top. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the coffee pods can be a bit more expensive than traditional coffee, and they can also be hard to find sometimes.
Coffee machine that produces cocffee for conosseurs

Summary: I had to "flush" my new coffee maker few times before I got the great tasting coffee. It's simple and quick to use and not much cleaning up after. Although I bought "breakfast blend" coffee to use in my Phillips Senseo, (there are few flavor choices to buy) the coffee comes out of the machine quite strong. I dilute it with cream. This machine produces a great tasting coffee not "flat" but with foam. You can also buy decaf if you so desire.
Summary: I love this coffee maker... I have one for my office and one for home. My co-worker was so impressed, she went out and bought one. Now, at any given time of the day, one might hear the hum of our coffee makers and smell the rich coffee brewing. My co-worker was considering the Keurig, but realized that it's not as 'green' as the Senseo. We compost at work, and there's no landfill from the little plastic cup used with the other brand.
