Senseo, a pod-based coffee brewing system developed by Philips Electronics, allows you to brew a fresh single cup of Java instantly, without leaving behind any messy coffee grounds or filters to clean up. The Senseo coffee brewer uses a proprietary pod system created by the Douwe Egberts company. The coffee pods comes in flavours like Paris French Vanilla and Sumatra.

Remove the water reservoir from the rear of the machine. Fill the reservoir to the minimum water line marked by a single coffee icon or a double coffee icon, depending on how many cups you want to brew. Alternatively, fill the reservoir to the maximum fill line to make several cups without refilling with water. Replace the reservoir on the machine.

Press the power button centred on the lower front side of the Senseo. Wait until the button's indicator light stops blinking.

Lift the tab on top of the machine and open the lid. Place a single pod in the single pod holder if you want to brew a single cup, or put two pods in the double pot holder to brew two cups. Set the filled pod holder into the centre of the open Senseo. Close the lid and lock the tab back into place.

Place a coffee cup under the Senseo's left spout. If brewing two cups, place a cup under the right spout as well.

Press the button on the left side of the machine to brew a single cup. Push the button to the right of the power button to make two cups. Wait for the Senseo to finish pouring the coffee before taking your cup.
