The Phillips Senseo coffee machine makes one to two cups of fresh coffee at a time. The appliance forces hot water through Senseo coffee pods to brew a cup of coffee with a bit of foam on top. Brewing individual cups of coffee allows changing from one flavour to another between cups and keeps coffee tasting fresh.

    Remove the water reservoir. Fill the reservoir to the "Max" line with cold water and put it back into the machine.

    Brewing Coffee

  1. 1

    Remove the water reservoir. Fill it with cold water and place in the coffee maker.

  2. 2

    Press the "On/Off" button. The indicator light will blink while the water heats up, and the machine is ready for use when the indicator light is continuously lit.

  3. 3

    Release the lid by pulling the lever upwards. Open the lid. Place a coffee pod holder in the machine. Use one coffee pod for a 113gr. cup of coffee and two pods for two, 113gr cups or a single, 227gr. cup.

  4. 4

    Close the lid and lock the release lever until it clicks. Place one or two cups or a mug under the nozzle. Make sure the cups can hold at least five ounces. There are two models of Senseo coffee makers. One has a single dispensing nozzle and the other has a dual nozzle.

  5. 5

    Press the button indicating how many cups you want to brew. Remove the cup or cups after the coffee stops dispensing.

Tips and warnings

  • Dispose of coffee pods and rinse the coffee pod holders after each use to keep coffee grounds from obstructing the water flow.
  • The coffee machine has an automatic shutoff switch; the machine turns off after about one hour.
