Found 13th Nov 2013
Just found this on Tesco direct website seems like a decent price.Has come down from £99.50 then to £49.00 and now a bargain price of £39.Free delivery to store.Has the bonus of making 2 cups of coffee at the same time unlike a lot of similar products.

Also lots in store to seems like a special promotion on coffee machines.

These are really good. I've had the all black one for a few years and the best thing is you can use any coffee with it. You can buy a CoffeeDuck from Germany for ~£10 and then you can use any ground coffee you like. You can also but re-usable pods if you want to have some ready to go.

Does this take Filter coffee or just pods?

Thanks op

Lots of stock in store if you can be bothered, there were like 100 of them stacked on the end of an aisle in St Leonards and Bexhill stores this week.

I have just been online and ordered two as xmas presents , maybe try again ??

Does anyone know which is better this or the Philips Senseo Twist HD7870. I bought the twist last year for about £70 but its just given up. Luckily it was in warranty & I have just had a full refund. Do I know get it again or the one just posted?

Had two different design Senseo's here. Features I liked/valued with 2nd machine were (a) larger water tank; (b) decalc light so don't have to remember. I think you just need to consider the features you value - all the Senseo's have a 2yr warranty (Amazon replaced my 2nd one within 48hrs when it failed after about half-a-year).

BUT see my comments below re CUP SIZE - this seems to be very limited as to what cups you can use!

All the Senseo's use "pads" in their terminology - ie 'single/normal' or 'double/mug' size (typically 7g v 12.5g in weight). However various 3rd party gizemos allow you to put ground coffee into the space where a mug size/double pad would go otherwise - eg 'coffeeduck' or "Melitta Permanent".
As well as Senseo branded pads in regular supermarkets there's also Lidls who do compatible pads at around £1.69/14 pads; and a few Netherlands (ie Philips home turf) Internet shops who major in the pads from Senseo and a host of compatible brands - apparently the Senseo's are BIG in NL.
BUT see my comments below re CUP SIZE - this model seems to be very limited as to what cups you can use!
You can occasionally find the Senseo & compatible pads in the 99p/£1 stores when can be major bargains - eg a typical £3.50 Senseo high quality for the eponymous 99p/£1 though perhaps only a few weeks pre 'best before'.
Tesco BTW showing as 'in stock' as I type at 16:03.
Do ignore Tesco's 2 year warranty offer as Philips offer "Service: 2-year worldwide guarantee: Yes" and have done in Europe for years.

What does that mean??

look for it online... only german sites seemed to have sold them previously... reviews, what few there are are not good... and noone else in uk sells them.

can't help feeling they're a job lot dumped on uk market to be rid...

Just one thought based on the pictures of this Senseo model - the drip-tray upon which the cup/mug/mugs stands doesn't look that deep and the illustration uses nice specialist square glass cups. I wonder how well a good old 'mug' fits on this model ?
Personally have the had the old/cheaper/original HD7814 and the newer/improved 'Cafe' HD7825 [ie with bigger tank & calc light] and they DO have plenty of room for 2 mugs. Just seems 'iffy' with this HD7863 from the pictures and wonder if anyone has first hand experience to validate.

Philips UK models currently (allegedly):
philips.co.uk/c/s…cat

PS: Actually just noticed a filter on that page to view "fit different cup sizes" which then excludes this model. So I would DEFINITELY BE WARY as to what cups you can use with this particular model's design.

The but is obviously a typo and should be buy. You can buy these things ecopad.us/wel…htm, fill them with coffee and keep them in the fridge till you're ready to use them.

No milk steamer.
Whereas, this one has one...

No milk steamer.


Not aware of any Senseo machines with milk steamer. Manual recommends microwaving milk/mug to warm them up if you want your coffee white (which is what we do very successfully - about 15secs for a mug).

I would personally pay more for ESE machine. The coffee from these taste awful.

I am not claiming expert knowledge but I thought all the pro' machines and big chains steamed their milk. But, if it works for you, fair enough.

Available on Amazon for 53 quid... Also, if you look online for the Philips Senseo quadrante (it's UK name), you will find the exact same model just in black, not red for 100 pounds.... seems this was just renamed when on sale in the UK. The model number provided by tesco is the EU model number/name

This is available online as an extra for this model, the reusable pod... there are many available online, but THIS one is the correct one, most of them fit another model, however, pick this one up and make your own pods instead of the expensive ones in the shops!

You can move the drip tray up and down. It will take a mug sized cup

Just having a look around Ebay and the cheapest pods / pads for this coffee maker seem to be £5.49 with free postage for 18. Does anyone know where I can get them cheaper?

TIA

thanks ....bought with clubcard boost



Same here i ended up paying £9 for it so really happy.Its a really good idea is the club card boost.

Still had a £5 off £20 code on my account plus paid all in clubcard vouchers with the double up promo Cheers!

remember tesco clubcard boost is applicable too !! hot

YOU CAN USE ANY SIZE CUP AS THE CUP STAND JUST LIFTS OFF AND CAN BE SET AT ANY HIGHT.

Thanks for that deal. I've just bought one.
Great and cheap Senseo coffee pods (62mm) available from thecoffeepod.co.uk. If you're a coffee nut you'll love them.

I bought this today before seeing this thread. Its a very good price compared to other places and I have a red kettle and toaster so it will match. The Senseo coffee pads seem much cheaper than the Dolce Gusto or Tassimo.

I've had the old black one for 9 years now and still going strong. Cup size is a problem - to the a cup is a couple of mouthfuls. I hunted down some full size bulbous mugs that fit under just nicely - not easy to find though - certainly normal mugs just don't fit underneath. The Senseo coffee is extremely good - especially the Morning Americano or whatever it's called - in the yellow packet. I warm a little milk in the microwave then fill up with the coffee, its steam powered so comes through with that lovely cream on the top and as it falls into the milk you get a very good capo effect. Can't praise it enough apart from cost of coffee pods and the difficult process of getting mugs to fit underneath.

Thanks for posting, bought with Clubcard Boost and picked up today

Received this today and tried it. Works well and looks good though I would not have paid thr original price.

For those me tioning cup size, I dont quite get it. All my mugs fit without issue. The gap between the drip tray and nozzles allows for a cup up to 12cm tall. The only type I can think of that are higher than that might be tall latte mugs.

I recommend it at this price.

What am I doing wrong? Picked mine up this afternoon, when I put a coffee pod in to the one cup holder thing I can't close the top on the machine. I had to put one coffee pod in to the 2 cup holder. I'm sure I've bought the right pods
