A Review of the Senseo Coffee Machines
Philips’ Senseo coffee makers provides an easy to use, quick way to make a quality cup of coffee. There are three different models of senseo coffee makers: Senseo Coffee Machine, Senseo Deluxe Coffee Machine, and the Senseo Supreme Coffee Machine.
In this coffee makers review, we will discuss the pros and cons of these products. All models come in a modern, user-friendly design.
Senseo coffee machines work by creating light water pressure which pushes water through coffee pods made especially by Douwe Egberts Coffee Roasters. These coffee pods come in a range of flavours and blends including specialty barista blends and espresso pods.
The use of coffee pods removes the need for coffee filters and ground coffee. Coffee pods are simply thrown out after use. This avoids the mess that often accompanies other coffee machines.

Although this is a one-cup coffee maker, you can brew two cups simultaneously by simply getting an extra pod. You can have a good cup of coffee in less than two minutes from your original decision to make a coffee.
The Senseo Coffee Maker is easy to clean, comes in red, white or black, and turns off if not used for an hour.
By and large, there are far more pros to this product than cons. In particular, speed of coffee making, ease of cleaning, and lack of mess are popularly appreciated benefits. The flush cycle to clean the internal mechanism is also a benefit of this model as is the fact that it is dishwasher safe.
There have also been negative coffee makers reviews of this model. However, they tend to focus on personal taste. Some consumers do not like the taste of the coffee from the coffee pods, others find the machine too loud. There has been more general criticism that large cups and mugs cannot fit under the spout of the machine.
This model has all the features of the basic Senseo coffee maker with the additional benefit of an adjustable spout to allow for larger cups and mugs. It also has a 33% larger water reservoir and addedtea making function. As with the Senseo Single Serve, the Deluxe model is based on the versatile and convenient coffee pod system. It allows you to brew different types of coffee or tea instantly.
The negative reviews of this model tend to focus on the taste of the coffee and the presence of froth on the top of the coffee. Rather than a genuine ‘con,’ this seems to be a matter of personal taste. If you are concerned about a negative coffee makers review of a Senseo machine based on taste, ask if you can sample the coffee. There seems to be more concern with the flavored pods than with straight coffee.
The Senseo Supreme coffee maker comes in an attractive stainless steel finish. As well as having an LCD display showing water level, the Supreme allows you to choose the volume of coffee you want in your cup or mug from 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 ounces.
The reviews of this model are primarily positive. Its additional features have received positive reviews as have the features in common with the other models. It appears that Philips has answered all criticisms with the Senseo Supreme Single Serve Gourmet Coffee Maker.
Philips’ Senseo series of coffee makers are well designed, easy to use, versatile and convenient. They have attracted largely positive consumer reviews.
