I'd really appreciate any feedback - thinking of getting one for the team at work. We currently drink instant, all grumble about it, but are all too tight to frequent Costa.
Is the coffee these things produce as a good as a cafetiere/percolator? Or are we talking conference-room vending machine sludge...
Thanks in advance for any insights. I notice they are the subject of a big cashback promotion at the mo so am wondering if they are either useless or good but overpriced.
Got ours from Argos with 5 free packs of pods. Prefer medium roast. The 1 cup measure is a bit on the small side, so I use a bigger cup and press 2 cup button with 1 coffee pod, which doesn't water it down as much as you might think. The capacity of the water tank is not very much (4 small cups) before it needs refilling. I'm impressed with the coffee, also tried Kenco pods (medium) but I don't rate these as much as the proper Senseo ones.
Yorkiegirl - where did you get the mocha pods from? Are they proper Senseo ones or another brand?
Are the pods not expensive ?
I was going to get (well it was to be a present) a Nespresso but the capsules are £0.25 each.... and then its Nestle anyway which is against my ethics.. so I gave it a miss... but Nespresso coffees are fab !
