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 originally purchased the Cappichino pairing, but like all the rest, I did not like the taste of the creamers...The espresso on its own is good...
This does not brew up too hot, so I am able to drink it right away... Very little crema, but is has a nice taste.
It dispenses about a single shot of espresso... See Picture...I actually remembered to upload one this time...
I like to use this selection to mix with the hot chocolate for making a tasty mocha - this from an espresso drinker.
Yes, I recommend this product.

You'll swear you just stepped into a coffee shop with one taste this strong and smooth Cappuccino. The intense flavor and inviting aroma of Gevalia Espresso is topped with a light-as-air layer of foam from our real milk creamer for a heavenly helping of happiness.

The mixed review refers to the fact that I do not care for any of the flavors from the cappuccino or latte creamers...The espresso on its own is good...
This does not brew up too hot, so I am able to drink it right away... Very little crema, but is has a nice taste.

I would buy this separately as an espresso, and use it to mix with the hot chocolate for making a tasty mocha - this from an espresso drinker.

Good head of crema, where some of the other crema selections were surprisingly lacking in this department considering the namesake...
This brews up hot, but I am able to drink it right away...
It dispenses about 1/3 of a coffee cup...and has what I call a "condensed" cup of 'joe' flavor...
I would buy this one again as one of the few crema selections I would keep on hand - this from an espresso drinker.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great taste, great crema, almost as creamy as an espresso...
This brews up hot, but I am able to drink it right away...
It dispenses about a double shot of espresso... See Picture...I actually remembered to upload one this time...

This T-Disc brews up Hot...a little too hot for me to drink right away...have to wait a few minutes...
It dispenses what I consider to be an "almost full" cup of coffee, I am more of an espresso drinker and this is on the outer limits of what I prefer to drink as a single serving. See picture...
This is another one that has what I consider a "Euro-Coffee" taste. It is a robust drink with plenty of caffeine...
I got my Tassimo over a month ago, and have been trying a bunch of different selections. Some that do stand out, this one nice to have around for when I want coffee...
Yes, I recommend this product.

A classic continental caffè crema, topped with a fine velvety layer of golden bubbles for a smooth sensation. Brought to you by JACOBS in the time-honoured tradition of German coffee roasting expertise.

This T-Disc brews up Hot...but I am still able to drink it shortly after it finishes brewing...
It dispenses what I consider to be a half cup of coffee, I am more of an espresso drinker and this is a nice midway between an espresso volume and a full cup of coffee. See picture...
This one that has what I consider a "Euro-Coffee" taste. It is a dark roast, and provides a nice zing of caffeine...

Nothing stands out to me about this selection. It is not bad by any means, just does not impress me... There are plenty of other Tassimo selections that are much better for my personal taste...

If you love a strong espresso, you'll adore this fine full-flavoured coffee T DISC. TASSIMO brings you the thrilling experience of CARTE NOIRE Ristretto, with a strong aroma and generous body.

This is what I consider a true espresso... Compared to some of the other types of espresso T-Disks that seem like just a couple oz of regular coffee, this one is powerful and very close to what I am served at the local caffe. Lovely crema, and great taste. Without a doubt, my favorite T-Disk so far...Save the other espresso disks for mixing in an extra kick within another drink...Drink this one straight..!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Volume of Carte Noire Expresso Ristretto

On the Tassimo website sidebar, this "ristretto" is listed as an 8 ounce drink size but of course I would expect it to be smaller than the other 4 ounce espressos - so what is the volume of this drink?
Thanks
I did not measure it, but is definately NOT 8oz...perhaps 1.5-2.0oz... A typical "shot" of Espresso like you would be served in those tiny cups at a caffe...
