Gives great tasting coffee - providing you place the pod in holder firmly ie push it down to compact the coffee or it will let the water through to quickly. Which I reckon is the issue other negative comments allude to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Paddy42 Waste of space with no online instructions
My wife bought this Philips product and having either lost or not received any instructions for use maintains that it is wonderful. Well I have three gas hob espresso makers (well known names) which never fail to produce a good cup of coffee but this product never performs with either the pods or one's own selection of coffee grains. Have searched the net for a simple Philips manual but everything is geared to sales patter and not instructions. Sadly, another declining European (is it still ?) company.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pagey123 Coffee making very hit & miss!
I was brought my machine as a Christmas present & was thrilled with it's look, design & easy to use instructions. Once I had mastered the different pods (amount of coffee) & chosen my favourite taste I was extremely happy! But during the last couple of weeks I have been getting great coffee sometimes & horrid watery nasty coffee at other times?? I have flushed the machine as instructed but it is still not working properly. Obviously I am only getting a great cup every now & again so am wasting a lot of pods which are not cheap!! Any help welcomed. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by PBudgie Great coffee when you follow the instructions
Cannot fault the machine at all. You must however remember to flush the machine before you first use it to make coffee which I suspect other reviewers didn't do. Once you do, you get a fantastic hot cup or mug of coffee every time. Quite a small footprint also and it is supported by coffee duck so you can use your own coffee instead of DW pods if you so wish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by paulasx very disappointing
Bought this after friends raved about their coffee machine...I later found out it was a different make which explains why this one produces woefully poor lukewarm coloured watery undrinkable stuff! The cappuccino pods dont fit, the rest of the range taste like a supermarket basics brand made with cold water! Extremely disappointed and its now in the bin as I left it too long to send back and wouldn't even give it to a charity shop! Shame phillips cant refund me, certainly won't be in a hurry to buy more of their products

Rated 5 out of 5 by McColl Excellent coffee, good machine
Surprised at the previous reviews - we've had two of these, and now have a red one in reserve. We bought the first one from Germany before they were available in the UK.
Only problem was a chemical taste rectified by a quick replacement machine.
Never had a problem since and soon found our favourite Senseo coffees. Some were from Coffeepodshop, others through Amazon (mostly Mocca Gourmet -not to be confused with 'mocha' chocolate though), and in recent months, the Morning Americano double pods which make good full bodied large mugs of coffee, or two smaller cups.
Excellent choice of coffee types and cup/mug sizes and can be tailored to suit taste.
The machine has a nice modern design and is easy to use. Personally, I'd prefer a dark transparent coloured water container, especially with the red model which we recently bought as a spare due to it being on offer.
The black one currently in use does have a darker shaded water container, but perhaps darker would look even better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Finlay40 The pods are too big for the holders.
I got bought this for Christmas and as most Christmases go, I quickly made a coffee and it was easy to use.
After a few tries, I realised that the Senseo pods were too big, I found myself putting single pods into a double holder and pressing single to make the most out of the pods.
I do have to say it is quick, the coffee is good but there is a lot of faffing around involved.
