Our Senseo Coffee machine is many years old now and we are spoiled by the great rich taste and crema it makes. Back when we bought our coffee maker, the pods were available in the grocery store and box stores like Costco. Now, I think the only place you will find Senseo pods is online on the Senseo web site or at Amazon.com. We still order them through Amazon and take advantage of the subscription plan with free shipping. Even with that, the supply is fickle. Recently our subscription was interrupted by lack of supply and the price just keeps going higher and higher. We probably won’t buy another Senseo coffee maker when this one finally dies, but for now we want to continue with the one we have. I’ve tried the various pod maker products. They are messy to use and, from my experience, don’t seem to get the same crema or flavor. The Senseo pods contain an exclusive grind and blend that I haven’t been able to find. It’s fun to experiment some though. I’ve even tried running the machine with a tea bag in the pod holder. It made a nice strong, flavorful cup of tea! You might really like to try making your own Senseo coffee pods. It’s not too difficult or time consuming. Click Here to see my page showing how to do it.
