Good Points: Really quick and there is no mess at all to clean
Bad Points: The 1 cup amount of water produced is very small. The coffee is not hot enough (and yes, I have followed all the instructions!!)… Read Full Review

I got my last one from coffee direct and it lasted about 14/15 months at about 3/4 cups a day. Just ordered another from coffee direct it arrived to day and does not work and being disabled and having trouble getting out it is a problem when the supplier tells me to go to manufacturer and expect that will be the answer again… Read Full Review

Had it 5 years. Just now failing to deliver the right amount of water after 9,000 cups of coffee. That's 1/3 of one penny per cup for the cost of the machine. That's true VFM ! i like the option of getting the double pods for a decent size cup. Pods are easy to come by, and the machine has enough bar pressure for a thick creamy top. Water boils very quickly, and the height allows many mugs to slip under the spout… Read Full Review

Love the Senseo coffee machine. The only problem I have ever had is very minor leakage when it is pouring from the linged cover. This is fixed by pressing gently on it and it is intermittent anyway… Read Full Review

As with any coffee maker it depends on the coffee that you use. I bought a box of different types of senseo coffee and a few dutch coffee pads to try. Sure enough there are several of the blends that I really don't like and some that I do.
The Philips HD7810 Senseo Coffee Machine itself well the only gripe I have is amount of coffee it produces. I'm not sure how Philips define cup size but I'm yet to find a cup that will fill to an acceptable level. So its 3/4 filled small mugs or a large… Read Full Review

I have had the Senseo for over three years,i have just broken it and so decided to see what else is out there. i really cant find anything comparable, something i know will work as well and give as good a cup of coffee as this one does so i am just going to replace with another one.
the main reason being that i use the eco-pod and put my own blends in, my only gripe is the tiny water tank and its fiddly release but I can live with that for a machine this good for under £50!… Read Full Review

Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine does exactly what it says on the tin ! Makes a decent cup of coffee very fast. Also plenty of choice available so to all those people who say they don't like the coffee it makes: "just try another brand / roast" . You have a lot more choice than with Tassimo, Dolce Gusto, Nespresso etc., if you they don't stock them in your local shop check online.

am on my 3rd Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine and have drunk no other coffee at home since i recieved the first one as a gift, however my only gripe really is the small water tank as i use it so much and i have got used to only having a small cup as the single pod doesn't give a full cup would be nice if you got more… Read Full Review

When I decided I wanted a coffee machine I did lots of net surfing to narrow down my choice and was amaed at the amount of "pod" type machines out there.
I could not justify £100 on one so opted for the Philips HD7810/60 Senseo as it was the cheapest AND there are Eco-pods available that allow you to use normal filter coffee in the Senseo.
The Eco-pods are available on-line and basically just take normal filter coffee. You fill up the "pod" - insert it into the machine and it makes the… Read Full Review

Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine makes great coffee - I buy my pods on the web from Direct Coffee Pods. Much greater variety than you ever find in supermarkets. Easy to use and small enough to stay out on a work surface. Much cheaper than other machines so good value for money. Have not used instant since buying this. Water tank has a removable top piece that can be fiddly. Also it tends to drip from the outlet whilst fitting, but seals after that… Read Full Review

I love my Philips Senseo HD-7810. I use two pods per mug and the taste is this best coffee i can get without going to starbucks. make sure you put the milk in the cup and stick it in the microwave for 20 seconds then make the coffee, this affects the final taste of the coffee and also stops the final result being maybe not hot enough for some people if you use milk.

The mug size you get of the Philips Senseo really are a large mug, I warm the milk up first as I prefer it that way, the coffee is hot without doing that though, great tasting coffee, I like the dark roast, the coffee has a lovely frothy head on it, I keep looking at the eco pads that you can buy off ebay, so you put your own coffee in but I like the coffee so much I'm not sure it would be the same. Might get round to trying them soon… Read Full Review

This Senso type of one cup brewing will eventually put the coffee barista concept out of business. Automated pod brewing is very popular in northern europe today. Starbucks
has seen it's golden age. Frankly, living in a gastronomic ghetto like Oakland / Berkeley, California for the past 28 years, and having consumed Peet's coffee and other strong robust brews from the Northwest,
I find Douwe Egberts coffee pods to be a welcome change. Face it - europeans have been consuming coffee longer than… Read Full Review

As we have tried Douwe, Egberts and Kenco pods are not to our tastes ,rather than keep buying other makes I understand that there is method of using your preferred coffee with this machine.

Everyone I've made coffee for, using my Senseo, loves it. It is fun to use and very quick when you're in need of a coffee fix but don't want to make an entire pot. My hubby and I, and our teens, just love our machine and we've enjoyed every flavor and type they have on the market so far with no regrets!… Read Full Review
