I ran out of pods for my Senseo coffee maker. It was very difficult for a while to find them in the stores. This is my easy, no extra purchases, way to get by.
You only need your coffee pot, some coffee, small filters and the deep pod holder.
Step 1: Folding the filter
I put in 2 heaping tablespoons, about 3 ounces. Press the filter and coffee into the pod holder. I try to put as much as the holder will take.
