Having said that, Baronet has some real garbage out there, but they make up for all that with this little cheesy named gem. BEST. POD. EVER. It's bold, it's dark, BUT it's smooth as my one year old's butt! True sign of good coffee? Let it get completely cold in your cup, then drink. This one passes that test with flying colors (dark, rich brown to be exact).
I am taking time to praise this pod only because finally FINALLY I have found one that can actually beat my very messy, very time consuming, grind + measure + brew, traditional method I was using before. Most pods out there are way wayyyy too weak for me, or have so little coffee in them that you have to brew only half a cup to get some decent flavor. Not so here, boys and girls...this is the real deal... a full 12g of coffee in every pod!
If you are a strong coffee freak like me, and have given in to compromise for the convenience of pods, also check out Coffee Artisan's new 12g pods...some of them are almost as good as this Blast. Their "Dark Side" "Extra Bold" pod is very similar to Blast, though not QUITE as good IMO).
I had also tried different pods trying to find one that would make a strong full bodied coffee flavor without breaking the bank. Note: The pods are 12 grams so they will not fit the standard Senseo pod holder. You will have to use the extended holder to accomodate this pod. If you like strong coffee, this is the pod for you.
I will say this is not weak coffee but its not kick you in your teeth strong coffee either, for me its the perfect strength.
UPDATE: After sharing this review with Baronet, I got some very helpful advice. Turns out that the 10 gram pods work with my machine, but I ordered 12 gram pods. He said I could make these work by wadding the pod into a ball, then wetting it before use. This seems to work pretty well, and the coffee is very good. The company rep apologized for the hassle and they are sending me a free selection of their coffee pods.
The down size is that they are size 12 rather than 7... they don't fit in the regular holder
for pods but I can get them in the alternative one on my Starbucks Espresso .... and they
Keep it up Baronet
I am using these in a first-generation Senseo machine. These pods are much thicker than the Senseo pods so you'll need to use the double-pod tray. They're packed much tighter than the Senseo pods, which also may affect how strong this coffee tasted.
As long as these pods remain available, I don't think I'll even bother looking for more alternatives.

Zero stars if I could. This is the weakest coffee I have ever had. I put two pods in my machine and still there is NO coffee flavor. I rather drink instant coffee.Published on June 17, 2014 by M. J. Wood

This is the best French Roast type coffee I have purchased for my Senseo single serve machine. Be sure to use the large filter holder for this though.Published on December 24, 2013 by B. Briscoe
Baronets coffee pods worked better in our Suncana pod brewer (no problems with grounds leaking from the pods) than other pods. Read morePublished on November 14, 2013 by Ole Guy
This pod fits the Senseo machine and delivers a rich, deep and dark, flavorful cup of coffee. I like my coffee strong, and this BLAST lives up to its name.Published on October 3, 2013 by Paula the Gourmet
