Sorry, but me thinks you'll be hard pressed to find anyone who's into
"fresh" coffee (any brewing method) knowledgeable about pods, refillable or
otherwise. I mean, grinds get stale fast, as in minutes, whether in a pod or
not. I suppose if you could grind and immediately make some up then vacuum
seal and deep freeze them in a couple minutes total time they'd be fine. But
why? Why not simply grind for each brewing so you know it's fresh...

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

Julie,
Espresso Pod or Coffee Pod?
I tested the Philips Senseo for coffee and wrote a review for it if you are
interested (I even bought the part to let one use home roast)  ... if you
home roast, you will be disappointed with the cup.
The bottom line is, the more control you give up in the process, the lesser
the quality of results.

I have a Senseo. Threw away the pods it came with and bought myself a  
packet of  Dutch-made "Eco-Pads" (they come two to a packet), which  
are plastic-and-nylon-mesh pods you open, fill with your own freshly  
ground coffee, snap shut and brew as if they were disposable single- 
use pods.  Hardly ever use it anymore, since the Technivorm is not  
much more trouble and the Aeropress makes a superior cup.  But if you  
don't mind not-hot-enough cafe creme (about a 4-oz cup for a double- 
sized portion of coffee), it will do it as well as any superauto.

Which is what I do (or did) for the Senseo. I never filled the  
refillable pod in advance.

I've had good luck with the Keurig machines.  Not quite as good as  
fresh roasted and drip, but the ease and clean up is very nice.  And  
the cup is very close - good for the AM wake up cups.

I use a very good quality Moka pot - very inexpensive - and it makes 
great coffee. If I didn't have this, I'd probably do Sean's 39 cent 4 
minute coffee idea.

good coffee doesn't have to cost a lot.
