Original (XL): basic model

Senseo Original red

As the name suggests, this is the original Senseo model. You can make 1 or 2 cups of coffee with it at the touch of a button. This model is also available in an XL variant. The water tank is larger. This way, you don't make 4, but 7 cups of coffee in a row without refilling the water tank. In addition, some Original models have the Intensity Select function. This allows you to make a stronger cup of coffee.

Viva Cafe (Duo Select): adjustable coffee strength

Senseo Viva Cafe Duo Select

In appearance, the Viva Cafe is very similar to the Original. However, there are a number of differences. For example, the water tank is larger, so you can make 5 cups in a row instead of 4. Thanks to the descaling light, you know exactly when your machine needs to be descaled. With the Intensity Select function, you can adjust the coffee strength for a stronger cup of coffee. The Viva Cafe is also available in a Duo Select version. This version can change the brewing technique for a fuller coffee taste.

Quadrante: square design

Senseo Quadrante

The Quadrante has a square design, so you can easily place it in a corner or against the wall. In terms of functions, this model is very similar to the Original XL. The water tank is the same size. Other than that, you can't adjust the coffee strength or brewing technique with this model. You can adjust the drip tray, so that the coffee doesn't splash up when you make a smaller cup of coffee.

Switch: also a pot of filter coffee

Senseo Switch

With the Switch, you not only brew 1 or 2 cups of coffee with a coffee pad, you can also make a whole pot of filter coffee. This is very useful for a birthday party, for example. The Switch models have a descaling light, allowing you to clean the device in time. You can adjust the coffee strength, thanks to the Intensity Select function. The water tank has a volume of 1.2 liters. This is large enough to make 7 cups of coffee without refilling.

Latte Duo: milk specialties with fresh milk

Senseo Latte Duo

With the Latte Duo, you can make a cappuccino, latte macchiato, or a café latte with fresh milk. This Senseo device has a milk tube that froths fresh milk from the milk reservoir. In addition to the milk specialties, you can also make a regular cup of Senseo coffee. You can adjust the coffee strength with the Intensity Select function. Thanks to the descaling light, you can clean the machine in time. The water tank has a capacity of 1 liter, so you can make about 6 cups of coffee in a row.
