Philips Senseo Twist HD7870


A neat pod machine that makes two drinks at a time

Can make two drinks at a time ; Easy to use

Plastic taste to early drinks ; Senseo blends inferior to Nespresso ; Plasticky build quality ; So-so build quality

The Senseo Twist is a neat little coffee machine that lets you make two coffees at the same time. It doesn't produce the best coffee in town but it is quite cheap and easy to use.

Good but far from perfect

  (Rating Hidden)

I was using Senseo style coffee pods by Melangerie (from LIDL) BEFORE getting the Senseo, making good real coffee at around £0.10 per cup. I found at first that the Senseo (Viva Cafe model) did not extract as much taste as with my previous machine, but...
