It could be grate machine - nice looking, and Philips has decaffeinated coffee in the product range ( it was the main reason for buying). However, there are serious disappointments in the product: 1) OK, it makes only small cups, but thats really OK, just classic Italian cup, BUT the amount of water is random! It varies up to 2 times!!! One time you hardly get half a cup, next time it is full. WTF?? 2) Coffee is often COLD! Yes, I do "warm up" my cup before, but still, often it is just... (read more)

Oh was I in for surprise NO SAMPLE coffee pods !!!!!!! First time I have bought a coffee machine that does not have at least 1 sample in the box !! Come on phillips is it much to ask? Or are the staff removing them from the boxes to use in the staff room of my local store? (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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.

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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

I've read comments about people finding the coffee weak, but I have not experienced that. Douwe Egberts Senseo comes in mild, medium and strong flavours, and my wife and I use the medium. The decaffeinated tastes good too. Kenco pods were available from Tesco and Sainsburys (and they were cheaper than the Senseo), but they've stopped putting them on the shelves. Perhaps a sign that the popularity of the machine has waned.
We live in a very hard water area, and it is noticeable that the... (read more)

I am not completely unhappy with my Senseo, but would not buy another one to replace mine when it (soon) becomes unusable unless the leak problem is resolved. If you are considering buying one, bear in mind it may not last longer than a year, depending on how much coffee you make. Also be sure to keep it on a tray that will contain the leaks if you have countertops that would be stained by coffee. (read more)

I had read so many good reviews about the Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine, that I thought it was worth a try. Was I mistaken.
It was a choice between a £40 Senseo or a much more expensive espresso machine. I didn't even look at the espresso machines as the reviews for the Senseo were so good.
So given the price I wasn't expecting a great deal. I had read that it only accepted the Senseo sachets so I used these. I followed the instructions to flush the machine. And then I was... (read more)

I have never had a coffee machine make such great tasting coffee. The coffee made using the Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine also looks good, as it puts a frothy "head" on it.

This Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine was bought as a Christmas present, but the top hinged part has ceased up after only 4 weeks of use!
I didn't like the wishy washy, almost sudsy taste that is produced by this type of coffee maker. Having always used a filter machine and a cafetiere, the Senseo makes a completely different taste and I just didn't like the flavour. So the top part seizing up was the last straw! We are going to take it back to where it was purchased. The manual... (read more)

I just love the Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee machine. I bought it for under £30. I can have an individual cup of delicious freshly brewed coffee in minutes. I adore coffee, and I bought the dark roast pods along with the machine after reading reviews of the coffee being weak. However, the medium roast pods, which were free with the machine, proved to strong enough for my daytime use - and I like strong coffee. The dark roast are good for that extra kick.

I would kill for decent coffee like the stuff you can buy in Turkey, but the Phillips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine is quite useless. You might just as well pour very hot water on to the coffee bag. I tried it, and it was better than the machine, but still quite undrinkable.

I kept wondering what I was doing wrong with the Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine. The only way to get a hot cup of coffee is to microwave it after you've made it. I wish I'd taken it back when I got it and bought a jug filter coffee maker instead.

I was very keen to buy a quick and easy machine that will provide me with that first cup of coffee in the morning. I got a Philips HD7810/60 Senseo for home as soon as we bought one for my office. At first I gave it the benefit of doubt, the taste of the coffee seemed washed out and very weak. I thought I will find my taste in other pod flavours.

Been looking forward to getting this machine, but very disappointed with it. To get a full cup, you need to add two pods, and use the 2 cup mode. Coffee is not very strong. If you want to add milk, you need to microwave the milk, or your coffee will be too cold. Wondered why so many graded machines were available - everyone must be returning them - as I will be!

You get what you pay for. If you want an easy way to make non instant coffee then this Philips HD7810/60 Senseo Coffee Machine does that well. However, I found the taste of the coffee very average and nothing like those you'd get from one of the many high street coffee shops. Currently there are only two brands of pod available in the high street and neither do much for me I'm affraid. You can get a better selection on the internet but I'm not convinced the machine can do them justice.
