To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got tired of buying the US version of these pods at unreasonable prices ($0.8/pod), so I decided to order the Dutch version. I know them from living in Belgium for many years. These are original Senseo pods. See the picture: the original Dutch pod at the right (silky paper with branding ), the US version on the left (cheap paper, no branding). The coffee itself is similar quality, I would say the Dutch version is perhaps a bit stronger with a bitter taste, but this is what you are looking for in an espresso. The best is the price: these sell at $0.35/pod. That is half of the price of their US version. I just cancelled my subscription to the US version and order these instead. Very happy again :-). Thank you Amazon!
To brew 8 ounces of half decent tasting coffee i had to use two pods. I have used Tassimo , Keurig before and they both tasted much better. I drink my coffee black , without sugar therefore i think i really can tell when coffee is low quality.
My advise is skip it unless you use loads of milk and sugar in your coffee
I often read reviews on many websites with "a grain of salt"! It is a well known fact that reviews can be deceiving and bought, to influence buyers and their purchasing habits. In this case, the negative reviews are correct when it comes to the packaging of this product. Pods were broken and the remaining intact pods a mess. After months if not longer of complaints, this simply is an insult. Purveyors have ignored accurate reviews and simply patronized their clients by not finding a solution to this issue. If reviews are requested and not acted on "what's the point"!!!
I ordered this by mistake, expecting to order the extra strong variety. I tried them and can hardly tell the difference. I'll surely keep them, but next time will be more careful. Of course, as my name suggests, if these are a better buy than the extra strong, I will re-buy these.
I don’t know who’s thinking this is expresso but this is not. Great machine bad coffee, the closest I could compare it to is a weak American breakfast coffee with foam (as I said the machine does a great job but if the coffe is not there o well) . I can’t believe that Senseo put this out under their name brand. I can understand why this never really went anywhere.
