Top 10 Tips for Brewing with Senseo Coffee Pods
If you're the owner of a Senseo coffee pod brewer, you already know that Senseo coffee pods provide a perfect marriage of great taste and convenience. What you may not know is how to get the most out of your Senseo coffee pods with each and every cup. To help you achieve the best possible brewing experience, here are the top 10 Senseo coffee pod brewing tips:
- The better your water tastes, the better your coffee will taste. Fill the Senseo brewers reservoir with purified or bottled water to enhance the overall taste of your coffee or tea.
- Never reuse your coffee pods. While it might seem like a cost-cutting measure, the only thing youre really cutting back on is taste.
- Keep your Senseo coffee pod brewer clean. Wipe down the exterior of your coffee brewer as needed and, every once in a while, run a brewing cycle with no coffee pod in the machine to flush out the brewer. This will prevent your coffee from picking up a stale taste.
- Add your cream or milk to your cup before brewing. Not only will this keep your coffee from cooling too quickly, it preserves Senseos signature crma layer.
- Heat your cup in hot water. A warm mug will keep your drink from cooling for a longer period of time.
- Always store Senseo coffee pods in an air tight container to lock in freshness.
- Dont overfill the water reservoir. Pay close attention to the Senseo brewers water level indicator adding too much water could overflow the reservoir and damage your machine.
- Descale the Senseo coffee pod brewer with white vinegar approximately every three months. This will prevent the excess build up of minerals that can hinder your coffee makers performance.
- Senseo coffee pod brewers can be set for one- or two-cup brewing and hold up to two coffee pods. For stronger coffee, insert two pods but push the button to brew a single cup.
- Moisten your coffee pods before putting them in your Senseo brewer. A damp pod produces a better seal in the machine and improves the extraction process.
