Getting a friend a coffee maker


I was looking for a perfect housewarming gift for a close friend of mine. I was thinking of getting her something she could really use and not just store it somewhere in the attic and totally forget about it. It has got to be a kitchen appliance, I thought. After going around a couple of times inside the appliance center trying to check on every appliance there is, I got attracted to this Senseo single serve coffee maker. It is an amazing coffee maker and by the name itself, it lets you brew a single-serve gourmet coffee in just 30 seconds!

The Senseo 7810 deserves to be in every kitchen

This is what I also want in my kitchen! I am just done doing all the required steps that I usually do with my old coffee maker - measuring the coffee, placing the filter, adding water and wait for a few minutes. I find it too time-consuming especially if I still have to grind the beans myself. That’s a few minutes out the drain. With the Senseo 7810 coffee maker, I am able to choose the cup sizes, up to 5 x 4-ounce cups and I can choose to customize the strength of the coffee.

I was attracted to the Senseo partially because it looked exceptionally stylish for a coffee maker. Who would have thought that a coffee maker would look so wonderful? My friend does not have a big kitchen and the size of the 7810 looks compact enough to fit a small kitchen, which I thought this is really something worth considering for. And why should coffee makers be black and silver? I fell instantly with the white color.

Ease of coffee preparation

Preparing coffee is no longer a hassle as the coffee machine uses pods rather than beans. Although it is not difficult preparing coffee with use of coffee beans, it is much more convenient making coffee with pods. My friend is a busy mum, juggling between work and her 2 kids. It would be much more convenient to have a pod into the machine, press a button and wait for the aroma of coffee to fill the entire kitchen.

Not forgetting that the pods come in many flavors to choose from. Want it strong? Not a problem. Only want a mild quickie for the afternoon? It is not a problem too. Whatever it is, there will be a flavor that suits anyone.

Cleaning is easy too

Cleaning up after use is a breeze too. That’s because all removable parts are dishwasher safe! Senseo has really up-ed it’s research and development. This is a big step and major plus point.

We know that appliances of today do not last longer than the ones manufactured 10 years ago. Back then, there were less of electronics and settings, which mean less breakdowns. Thankfully, the Senseo 7810 gourmet machine comes with a 1 year warranty, which makes me feel assured that it can be covered in case something goes wrong with the unit.

I bought one for myself too

This is a total plus on this great kitchen appliance that I am so sure my friend would love me more for this. With so many awesome features this coffee maker gives, I ended up getting two - one for the couple and of course one for me. Can’t go wrong!
