Rated 4 out of 5 by Ironpeddler Works Great...Coffee Just OK
We've had this unit for over 2 years now and it works flawlessly still. I have participated in a Senseo Program of testing different coffees during this time and my ONLY complaint is about the coffees themselves. I like a good cup of coffee, not that Starbuck's Tar that most people rave about, but a good, flavorful cup. Most of the different blends that are made seem somewhat weak for my taste, a bit too thin....the medium and dark roast are pretty good though. There are some very good outside coffee suppliers that make some very good pods too. Experiment. What we use it for mainly is the Flavored coffees that are hard to make at home. When we entertain, it's a nice touch to offer our guests 5-6 different flavored blends after dinner...and never a complaint from any of them! But that is the fun part, trying all the different coffees to see what you like, and they are inexpensive enough to do so. I even bought one for my son's Freshman Dorm room, he says they line up for a fresh cup after the smell of the first one. Quality built unit and lots of coffee to choose from, and it's the most reasonable of all the manufacturers out there who have jumped on the band wagon.
PS, when purchasing the pods, put them in a zip lock bag and just cut the name and description off the original packaging and place that inside so you can identify the different blends....they much stay fresher, longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fan of Senseo Reminds me of coffee in Germany
I have had my Senseo for over 2 years, use it every day, and never had a problem. When I lived in Germany the coffee shop I went to used a Senseo. The coffee it produces is truly european coffee. The pods are not as expensive as the other one-cup machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vic We love ours
The only draw back is the small water resevoir, but they have fixed that issue. We love ours and would never go back to the other coffee makers.
