It can be a daunting task to prepare for the holidays. It takes many steps to create a memorable holiday season.

Coffee seems to be the most important holiday component. A recent survey conducted by The SENSEO Coffee System found that 43 percent of respondents believe that good coffee is an essential part of holiday meals. 54 percent also believe that flavored coffee can make guests feel special and enhance their holiday experience.

A great cup of coffee is more than a quick fix. It can add a special touch to a meal or entire event. Exotic coffee is a sign that the host has gone the extra mile to make a great meal. While gourmet coffees are extremely popular, not all flavors will suit every coffee drinker. SENSEO gourmet beans offer a variety of flavor options, including four different roasts and flavours that create a unique, rich cup that is perfect for holiday parties. Just in time for the holidays, the new SENSEO Barista Blends flavor packs are available in vanilla latte, café mocha and caramel macchiato -; and can be added to the mug before brewing for a customizable taste.

“The survey told us that 52 percent of respondents would be interested in being able to brew a single cup of coffee of their favorite flavor,”Philippe Schaillee is spokesperson for SENSEO. “The SENSEO Coffee System and all of the coffee varieties offer something for every palate when entertaining guests this holiday season and make it easy for the host as there are no messy grounds to clean up.”
