First, if you use the standard Senseo pods, you will get a good cup of coffee. I suggest using 2 pods for a full sized cup (12-14 oz) of coffee, in whatever roast you prefer (light, medium, or dark). When shopping around for other brands of coffee, please be aware that the pods come in different sizes, which do not all work properly with this coffee maker (even if the pods fit correctly in the basket!)
The Senseo pod is around 7-8 grams in size, and that is the size you need to look for in other brands, to ensure that they will work correctly. I believe the Melitta brand pods are also 7-8 grams. Baronet makes some very good roasts (my personal favorite brand), but, they also have 3 different pod sizes available. The Baronet brand coffee pods you need for this brewer come in a bag (like the Senseo pods), usually 18 count, and weigh a total of 140 grams per bag (7.78 grams per pod). These work beautifully in this coffee maker.
The Baronet brand 10 gram pods and 12 gram pods do not work properly in this coffee maker. Although they will fit into the brew holder, they do not have the proper filter material and coffee grind to brew a good cup of coffee in this machine. (For example, 2 of the 10 gram pods produces a very weak and weird tasting cup of coffee, no matter what the roast. You would think the larger pod size would produce a stronger cup of coffee than the 7-8 gram pods, but, unfortunately it does not work that way.Read more ›
I grind my own coffee and put it in a paper filter, about 3 Tbsp. for a 16oz cup. That works pretty well and does not take long. I found the best filters are some
I found in Walmart next to the coffee in the grocery section. It says it is made for 1 to 4 cup brewers and costs about a buck for a pack of 200. The filters are small diameter and thin paper. Perfect.
I dump the coffee from my grinder into the filter then pull 4 sides together and lightly twist together. The end product is shaped like a ball. I put that in the bottom of the filter holder. Takes about a minute to brew. Quick and easy.
Hope this helps!
so not saving any money on coffee. if the water would come out slower this would be a great machine.

Works great. Easy and fast
Only limitation is the choice of coffee available.
Bought it for $20, Worth the money and way cheaper than Keuring (which is over-rated)
This is a great way to take a pot on a 2 week auto trip.
It is more of a drip pot -- I like my Senseo pressure pot better.... I will use this on the road .
For those who don't want a strong cup of coffee, this will work fine but for me it was not adequate. I later bought a Vue coffee maker as it has a stronger coffee setting. Read morePublished on March 14, 2014 by Steve Kreutzberg
Please tell coffee suppliers to make more flavored decaf coffee for one of these. Also, need HB to have refillable pods for those with decaf requirements.Published on March 8, 2014 by David Rohne
