I always found Starbucks too bitter and burnt for my taste, so Seattle's Henry's Blend was perfect for me. So far this is the closest T-disc I've found to match. Tip - brew it stronger than programmed otherwise will be very watered down. I stop the water when the pump sound changes and I get a decent cup of coffee. Surprisingly good for a MH brand. Curious of how the new Gevalia x-tra bold will be -- supposed to be the Starbucks replacement, packaged in similar sized T-discs. Scheduled to release from Amazon on 15 November.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Using our advanced barcode system to brew a cup of Maxwell House Café Collection French Roast Coffee is like saying hello to an old friend. Made from delicious Arabica beans, this dark-roasted, full-bodied blend presents a rich cup of comfort with every sip.
 

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.
