Win Senseo Single-Serve Gourmet Coffee Machine!

CONTESTS, REVIEWS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | | May 29, 2010 at 10:40 pm


Congratulations Lynn!

So we got the Senseo. We are somewhat decent coffee drinkers, more of tea drinkers. So when we occasionally want a good cuppa we sometimes reach for the (sigh) instant coffee. Yes, we have a filter machine (albeit not a good one) but since we don’t drink a lot we don’t believe it is worth the effort for just one or two cups of coffee. If setup did not drive me crazy, then clean up would do the trick.

After un-boxing the Senseo it took literally 5 minutes to set up, and another 5 to run water through it for first use. Unlike the Keurig – which uses cups,  Senseo uses pods and though I can see that the cups that uses may look more attractive I doubt all that plastic is great for the environment. Not being a connoisseur of coffee I cannot go on about the finer details, but I can tell you the coffee was good. The finishing touch of the foam really made it look classy and professional. Having the ability to make one or two cups of coffee is a neat touch – kind of cool seeing two cups besides each other being filled with coffee simultaneously. I was sad though that the tall latte Mommy Niri mug could not fit there, but I can survive that knowing the cleanup is a cinch and practically non-existent.

Where I would love to use this? Definitely at a party. I mean how fancy smancy would this look at the next party? The only downer would be to have to refill water a few times as the reservoir only only holds water for around 8 cups. But I totally get that to make a machine lean and sleek and get rid of bulk means a smaller tank. Now would you love a Senseo Coffee Machine valued at $64.99?

  1. 1

    I live for my Senseo. Not only have we loved it since day one several years ago – but we’ve gotten most of our friends hooked on them too.
    Awesome contest.
    You’ll be happy you have it. Especially after the moment you realize you are *done* with pouring 3/4 of a pot of cold, undrunk coffee down the drain. :)
