Is there any chance Starbucks is coming back?
It is a shame that a deal could not be worked out. I think carrying Starbucks T discs gave Tassimo a competitive advantage over K-Cups. They also no longer carry Seattle's Best. Selection is limited and I fear Tassimo is not going to survive. Too bad, as I think the maker is superior.
Starbucks/Seattles is not coming back to Tassimo, but infact debuting with Keurig in November. Too bad, as I think the Tassimo technology is far superior and much more versatile than the simple brew of Keurig. Seems like Beta vs. VHS -- Beta was clearly a superior format (and used by production studios) but less popular commercially.
"Coincidentally" in Novemer Tassimo will release the Starbucks follow-on products; Gevalia extra bold in 3 varieties. Packaged in similarly sized T-discs, they are compared (on the packaging) to the 3 Starbucks varieties. Shipment has been delayed; go to Amazon and search on "Gevalia T-disc dark" to see package and preorder for November 15 release date.
