Senseo Base HD7810 Coffee Maker

Updated on February 29, 2008

One of the problems with coffee makers such as the well-known Mr. Coffee brand is that they will usually make a full pot of coffee, but the user may not want a full one. In fact, someone who lives alone may only want one cup, unless they are a caffeine addict. What usually happens is a pitcher of coffee gets left behind, disgustingly cold by the end of the day. Then when you pour it out, you have that permanent stain that you can’t get out no matter how hard you try.

I’m sure by now that you can see the practicality of making a coffee maker that only makes one cup. Electronic company giant Philips has designed a product for that capacity with the Senseo Coffee Single-Serve coffee machine. I had a chance to try out the Senseo Base HD7810, and not only is it able to produce a satisfactory cup of coffee, but it was quite easy to use.

All a user has to do is fill up the easily removable and dishwasher safe canister with water. Then you have to load the Senseo gourmet coffee pod in order to get the rich flavor. The pods are designed for single serves, and are a closed package so that they can be easily discarded after use without mopping up any gross, wet coffee grounds.

These pods are sold separately, but a package of Dark Roast comes with the HD7810. Other flavors are available including Dark Roast, Decaffeinated, Cappuccino, Brazil Blend, Vienna Hazelnut Waltz, Paris French Vanilla, Colombia Blend, Sumatra Blend, and Kenya Blend.

Once the water and pod is loaded up, it is a simple push of a button to get a fresh 4 or 8 ounce cup of coffee with a nice film of foam on the top. Touching the button a certain amount of times can adjust the strength of the coffee. The best part is you don’t have to worry about turning it off, as it has an auto shutoff after one hour of operation. The device even has a sprayhead at the top in case you just need hot water.

The Senseo Base HD7810 Coffee machine is available at the Senseo site for $69.99 in black, blue, white, and red. Senseo is starting a campaign at where anyone can receive a free one for the price of shipping and filling out a survey. If this is something interests you, or you are an avid coffee drinker, I highly recommend this deal.
