Sure, Sarah Lee and the pholks at Philips think this baby produces the best coffee you'll ever taste. It doesn't. The snotty coffee folks, like myself, roast our own coffee and it is utterly superior. However it is a royal PITA to tote fresh beans into the office and I'm the only one willing to go to that much trouble for coffee in my office.
To solve this little problem, I purchased a Senseo and these pleasant Douwe Egberts Dark pods! It's a sturdy machine, completely employee-proof, and quite tidy. The coffee it produces is far better than anything that comes in a can and certainly will give Starbucks a run for their $6 venti's.
Think of the DE pods as an easy way to get fresh, hot, pleasant coffee in about 30 seconds. Use two pods, one dark and one medium for a fuller flavor profile or, if you're a low-caf freak, do one decaf and one caf.
I agree with another reviewer that you've gotta pre-warm the mug you're using if you like hot coffee-and...
We purchased a Senseo coffee machine shortly after my son "borrowed" my Bunn coffee maker in March with the promise to get his own as he strolled out the door. Since I was the only person in the household drinking coffee regularly anymore instead of buying another Bunn and wasting half a pot of coffee every time I made a fresh pot of coffee, I thought I should at least look at the single cup coffee makers. I then promptly set off on a mission to find the coffee that "rocked my boat" given the fact that I was a sworn dunkin donut coffee drinker for years.
I am not terribly fond of flavored coffees in general although they are nice to have on occassion, so I tried all of the Senseo coffees and eventually found that the Kenya Blend was the best of the lot given my individual taste for coffees.
And then they came out with the breakfast blend. This makes a superb cup of coffee and it has effectively ended my murmurings for Dunkin Donut to get on board with Senseo and...
I found the mild was undrinkable and the medium barely tolerable. But the dark roast is quite good. Its on the Starbuck-type bitter side, but not as strong. None of these single serving coffee machines will taste like fresh ground. That is why you get some one star reviews for the Senseo. I keep the Senseo in my office for hassle-free single servings and it is great for that. Even the dark roast is really not strong enough to qualify as espresso, so I suggest you just use the double packets and make a large cup. Here is a further hint. Use a 10 oz cup, not a standard 8. Then put your milk in the cup and microwave for 30 seconds BEFORE you make the coffee. After coffee is make make sure to stir with a stirrer. Stirring is important and is actually recomended by Philips. As long as your expectations are down to earth you should enjoy this product. The machine itself has been flawless and doesnt seem flimsy at all.
