I bought my Senseo machine over 2 years ago (when they first came out) as an alternative to splurging on a much pricier machine after my mediocre Krups espresso maker died. While I loved the Senseo concept, I was disapointed with the coffee, even when I used the pods I bought from supposedly Gourmet suppliers, and considered spending the bucks on a true pump espresso machine. THEN I FOUND THE ECOPADS!! While I was a bit skeptical, (at that time they were only available from some obscure website--I think in the Netherlands) I took a chance and paid $13 + shipping for 2 pads. I loved them. So I bought two more for when the first two wore out, but the first pair are still going strong after two years of almost daily use!

TIPS FOR SIMPLE FLAWLESS PEFORMANCE: (1) Use a burr grinder to grind your coffee (whether at home or the store). I already had a "burr" coffee grinder when I got these. Unlike the grinders with spinning blades, burr grinders actually grind the coffee, resulting in a consistent size of grind (unlike the blade models which produce a combination of powder and granules). Mine allows you to adjust that grind. The finest is espresso, the most coarse is for a French Press. I have mine set about halfway between Espresso (finest) and drip (medium) and I get a rich cup of coffee every time. (2) Use good coffee--i.e., coffee you like! I use Pete's Major Dickason's Blend. (3) You do do not need to wet the pads, or to have them dry, either. While they are a tad easier to fill dry, they are simple to fill when wet (i.e. just rinsed out), too. And, if you happen to overfill them, I just mash the top down (which seems to push the coffee out of the way) and brush away any excess grinds (if pad is dry) or rinse the closed pad quickly under the faucet (if pad is wet).

I bought a Senseo when they first came out and I still love it. However, I felt like I was getting ripped off whenever I bought a package of "pods."

I bought an Ecopad and it works OK, but I've also discovered you can make your own pods by putting ground coffee in a regular paper coffee filter, twist the top and cut off a little of the excess paper, put in the the Senseo and "voila."

1. First of all, like the others have said, make sure there are NO gounds on the lips.

2. Use the ecopod OR look for the same sort of device from Presto. You can buy it at wall-world for 10 bucks.

3. If you use a refillable coffee holder here is the best tip I can give you:

***Put you regular coffee in a coffee grinder and regrind as fine as it will go then fill the holder as you normally would. Coffee goes through the Senseo VERY fast and regular grind coffee has a lot of trouble catching up to the steamy water.

After reading the reviews, I decided to try these, since I wasn't too thrilled with either the cost or quality of the senseo pods. After getting my three sets in the mail, I went to my grocery store, bought the Starbucks Sumatra whole beans, ground them to expresso grind, and went to try the ecopads. I followed the instructions, put the ecopad in the machine (perfect fit), hit the 8oz button, and wa - la! I would challenge anyone to tell the difference between the stuff you pay $3.50 a cup for at Starbucks. I'm definately hooked. I can't see how other reviewers have had problems with these. They are easy to fill, and fit perfectly in the machine. They are a bit messy to clean up, but its a fair trade off for the awesome coffee and the cost savings over the pods or actually going to starbucks. I would estimate I will get 50-60 cups out of a $6 store bought bag of coffee. Basically, one heaping teaspoon fills up the ecopad perfectly. Also I would estimate getting hundreds of uses out of each ecopad - they seem very durable. I am looking forward to trying different coffee's with these. Well worth the tiny investment!

Below still holds true, but like another person here, one of my pads ripped after a couple weeks....
I just got the ecopad, and with the help of people's reviews here, all my coffee so far has come out fine. You really do need to be careful with packing the pods. Make sure there are no little grounds on the edge. Even one ground will prevent the top from closing properly. Use in the 2-cup pod holder. Be careful emptying the pod holder -- carefully open the top, then give the bottom part a little squeeze and the grounds pop right out. Give both pieces a quick rinse, and you're ready for the next cup of coffee. Definitely not as convenient as the Senseo pods themselves, but a good alternative for using your own coffee. Also, coffee is thinner compared to the Senseo pod. The ecopad instructions recommend using an espresso blend if you like stronger coffee. Because the pod only holds a certain amount of coffee, you can't put extra coffee in the filter to get stronger coffee.

I have explored a number of different ways to use my own grind of coffee in the Senseo Coffeemaker. Folding filter paper didn't work....too much water goes by the filter making a week cup of coffee....The Quick-Cup sounded like a good idea....but it doesn't fit the holder tightly enough and too much water goes around the filter to get a good cup of coffee. I found that the Eco-Pad fits tightly into the two cup holder and it works well. The key to any of these re-usable pods is that water cannot be allowed to go around the filter. The pressurized hot water must be forced through the coffee.

The Quick-Cup and the Eco-Pad are essentially the same design but the Eco-Pad fits the holder correctly and the Quick-Cup is slightly small. Buy the Eco-Pad, it works. The Quick-Cup would work if you could rig a small rubber band seal between the Quick-Cup and the holder...a gasket, to prevent the water from going around. Good Luck!
