I have a Senseo coffee maker and, while I don’t mind buying coffee pods at the store, i would also like the option to buy my own. Is this possible?


Good question!

Yes, you can make your own coffee pods. Over the years various companies have come up with pod-making gadgets. But probably the best is the Perfect Pod Maker. (See image above.)

Of course, when you make your coffee pods one at a time, it takes away from the convenience of having a one cup coffee maker. But it’s a great idea for when you run out of store-bought pods, and also nice if you want to try a coffee that isn’t available in the coffee pod format.

The Perfect Pod Maker makes pods that will fit your Senseo, but is also good for pod coffee makers from Krups, Melitta, Simple Human, Juan Valdez, Bunn, Home Cafe, Grindmaster, Mr. Coffee and Hamilton Beach.

I think Amazon sells them. They look just like your pod holder but you fill with your own coffee. They'll even make the crema on the cup of coffee, just like the pods do.
