Senseo Supreme vs Original Model
by Princess Peg
My husband got me the original Senseo model (7810) for my 40th bday about 3 years ago. I fell in love with that coffee maker. It made outstanding coffee with no mess, and there was never the problem of the coffee getting old in the pot, etc. Plenty strong, etc. My favorite drink from the coffee shop was an Americano (espresso with hot water added), to which I added cream and Equal, so this was a perfect fit for me and far less expensive than my daily coffee fix at my local coffee joint. The only downside was that the cup clearance was about 4", not tall enough to fit a standard coffee mug.
Then, Senseo came out with the Supreme (7832) in late 2006. I was thrilled because it had the adjustable spout which accommodated a taller cup. Hubby got me a new one for Christmas, and I gave my old one to my niece. PROBLEM! The new one doesn't taste right. They must have changed the heating element because the water tastes metallic (like vaporizer water). I'm on my third one (all from different sources), and they all taste the same. I've had other people support me on this. It tastes bad.
Has anyone else had this problem?
