Finish a delicious meal with a steaming cup of exquisitely aromatic Gevalia espresso, prepared to perfection with the touch of a button. Highlighted with an intensity of taste that you won't soon forget, this strong-bodied roast could easily capture your heart in a single sip.

I enjoy a cup of espresso often. While this could be a little stronger (like Starbucks), it satisfies quite nicely.
I haven't tried the Mastro Lorenzo Espresso yet; it's next on my list.
Yes, I recommend this product.

With a medium body, perfectly balanced, and wonderfully smooth, this Signature Blend was personally crafted by the Gevalia Master Coffee Taster. Expertly brewed with just a single tap of a button, its smooth character makes it perfect for any occasion, any time of day.

The Ultra Premium TASSIMO T65 Home Brewing System by Bosch uses the savvy exclusive barcode system to scan each T DISC, the brewer identifying precise brewing instructions with the exact pressure, temperature, water, and time duration, so each and every drink is perfect. A delicious cup of your favorite coffeehouse-style beverage is yours at the touch of a button. A multilingual LCD display and cup stand light offer extra convenience, while a water filter ensures the right taste.

Honestly, any model will do as good as the T65 for less money, but the little LCD panel is handy (and kinda cool to watch). My first sample failed out-of-the-box (bad LCD panel) and Tassimo Direct replaced it immediately. Good service I think.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Exclusively imported from Europe for TASSIMO, our Carte Noire Voluptuoso Coffee is a full-bodied delight that's bound to become a favorite. The heady aroma of this medium-roast blend will satisfy your senses the minute it starts brewing.

From the name, I guess I expected the rich taste of an Italian coffee. I found the flavor disappointing.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I've used Bodum Espresso Cups for quite awhile and been very satisfied with them. These mugs are the perfect presentation for serving Cappuccino, Latte, or Macchiato to your guests. Buy two pairs.

Indulge yourself in the silky smooth goodness of our Milka Hot Chocolate, created by the renowned Phillipe Suchard in 1901. This decadent beverage is beautifully blended with our milk creamer T DISC that naturally creates a smooth, velvety layer for a delectable finish.

Maybe my samjple is very old, but to get the full taste of hot chocolate, it needs all of the chocolate in the t-disc. Unfortunately, it leaves some behind in the brewing process.

Great taste. Compared to Grevalia's (which is good) cappuccino, this espresso is a bit stronger and the milk tastes fresher.

The coffee is strong, but add more water and some cream and it's delicious. You may like it straight, but I think it's too strong straight. I understand Starbucks won't be available much longer, so Grevalia is adding two new Arabica blends. I hope they're as good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The TASSIMO T45 Single Cup Brewing System by Bosch offers a unique way to enjoy coffeehouse-style beverages at home, such as coffee, tea, espresso, and more in about a minute. With the simple touch of a button, the brewer uses INTELLIBREWTM to read the barcode identifying precise brewing instructions with the exact temperature, water, and time duration, so each and every drink is perfect. A built-in water filter removes taste-affecting particles, while the easy-to-clean design ensures optimum convenience. Forego the measuring and clean-up of other coffee makers and indulge in pure bliss one cup at a time.
 

Is there any place where you show the difference between machines

Check You-Tube. There are videos of all models being used to brew drinks. The T20 appeared to me to use a little different scheme to indicate its brewing progress from the T45/T65 models.

Does this brewer require 1 touch or 2 touch operation?

My current tassimo model requires a first button push to heat the water and a second push to start the brewing - it's a pain in the neck. I want a 1 touch operation.
My T65 is one-touch for sure, and I think all the Bosch models are. There are videos on You-Tube using nearly every model, watch a couple to see if all models are one-touch.

Keep your T DISCs organized in style with our handy dispenser. Measuring 30 x 14.5 x 22.5 centimeters, this black wire rack fits easily against your kitchen wall, displaying up to 48 T DISCs at a time.
 

Is there a local store where i can purchange the r96 t-disc dispenser?

Tried Internet shopping and didn't come up with any except Carousel dispensers. If they will satisfy, check Bed, Bath and Beyond for lots of Tassimo products.

Bold espresso provides a solid foundation for a delectable blend of caramel flavor and milk creamer, creating the Gevalia Caramel Latte Macchiato. Prepared to perfection each and every time, this sweet sensation is as easy to make as it is delicious.
 

Do you offer nutritional information online? I need to know how many carbs are in each cup.

Neither Tassimo, nor Gevalia sites seem to give nutritional information. Since this was asked about the Caramel Latte Macchiato, the best I can do is give you Gevalia's:
Total Carbs = 5g (Fiber 0g & sugar 3g).
It also lists Total Fat = 5g (Saturated Fat 3.5g & Trans Fat 0g), Cholesterol = 20mg, Sodium 140mg, and Protein 3g.

(If I have to give up something else to enjoy one, in spite of the 5grams I'll do it.)

At the heart of any great beverage is good water, and the MAVEA MAXTRA Water Filter ensures delicious drinks out of your Bosch brewer. Its natural Micropower filter and powerful Protectfilter remove taste-affecting contaminants, allowing the natural flavors of your beverage to develop.
 

The water filter doesn't look like the one I have now. Will this one you show fit my tassimo?

The Braun Tassimo brewer and the Bosch Tassimo brewer do no use the same filters. Perhaps you need the other one?

Put your feet up and help yourself to a cup of decaffeinated Kaffee HAG Crema. Expertly brewed every single time, this well-balanced blend is made with 100% Arabica beans and boasts a fine body with smoky touches.
 

Does the Kaffe Crema decaf have milk in the coffee disc/

The description does not have that info. I find your decaf coffee too bland and weak tasting. I have usd Gevalia, Maxwell house brands. Which of your decaf would be a french roast or stronger coffee tastin disc.
Crema is just a thin layer of foam on top. It's probably produced by the way the Brewbot brews Crema coffees. Crema Mexicana does contain fresh cream (like crème fraîche).
