5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper, Better, More Individualized and Delicious Coffee!, December 6, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ecopad, the Refillable Coffee Filter for the Classic Senseo (pack of 2) (Kitchen)
I love pod coffee. Really. Love. It.

But I really disliked buying the pods. I resented that they were a commercial product that I sort of "had" to buy in order to use my Senseo. I disliked that I was tied into a box of 18 at a time, and they were never all that fresh. There were no organic or fair-trade marketed ones that I could find. And ALL that packaging! To say nothing of the expense -- Sheesh!

Enter EcoPads, and the Coffee Duck!

Here is what I have found: Both the Eco Pods and the Coffee Duck will work to brew delicious coffee in a Senseo-type machine. The trick is getting super-dee-duper extra-fine-ground coffee, and then all is fine. However, the Coffee Duck does not give you nearly as much foam as either the purchased paper pods, or the Eco Pods, and it's a little sloppier to empty out when you're done.

The Eco Pods give you MORE foam, and only require about FOUR TEASPOONS of coffee, compared to TWO TABLESPOONS for regular joe in a drip pot (and yes, I measured). I found that I could get 42-50 cups of EcoPad coffee out of a finely ground can of Trader Joe's beans -- an average of about 15 cents per cup (if I bought a medium-grade brand).

The coffee is fresher and more delicious this way, because I grind the beans myself just hours before they are used. And the brew is a WHOLE lot cheaper -- about half the price of purchased paper pods -- so that the EcoPads have paid for themselves after about 25 uses.

Cheaper. Better. Yummier. There is nothing not to like!!!
