A clean and light-bodied selection with a vibrant hint of citrus. Made with premium, 100% Arabica beans sourced from the premier coffee growing areas of Latin America, this extra bold roast is sure to please any time of the day.

On their packaging, this new blend is compared to Starbucks Breakfast Blend. I would say it compares most favorably. When we first bought out Tassimo Brewer, I tried some of the Gevalia offerings and was hands-down unimpressed. At that time, Starbucks T-Discs were available, and that is what I preferred. Since the Starbucks brand is no longer sold for Tassimo, I have been searching for a comparable substitute. I have found some good ones, but this is probably my favorite. Aroma and taste are bold and full of flavor, with a smooth finish. If you enjoy a bold coffee, I recommend that you give this a try.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Smooth, satisfying and simply delicious, Gevalia Mocha is crafted with your sweet tooth in mind. A mouthwatering fusion of mountain-grown beans and rich chocolate syrup offers a decadent treat that's worth savoring.

This is a good, solid mocha. If you enjoy chocolate, you will like this beverage. As a previous reviewer described, the chocolate flavor is more prominent than the coffee. It resembles the Milka Hot Chocolate. Similar to that product, I pre-warmed the chocolate T-Disc prior to brewing, ensuring maximum extraction of the chocolate syrup. I have not been a fan of the Gevalia coffees, but this is one of their better products, in my opinion.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Help protect the environment one perfectly brewed cup at a time. Rich, flavorful, and intensely aromatic, our Kenco Caffe Crema is made solely with Arabica beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms and topped with a thin layer of foam for a heavenly finish.

In an effort to find suitable replacements for Starbucks T-Discs, we tried a selection of offerings following research on this site. One of the ones I enjoyed the most was the Kenco Crema. It is moderately strong, yet smooth, and has a nice topping of the namesake frothy "cream".
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.
 

What is a comparable alternative to the French Roast?

I agree, this is my absolute favorite and I find it hard to drink anything else. You didn't really answer the question about when it would be available again, just reiterated that it was out of stock. So it doesn't look too hopeful. I opened my last package tonight. I need to have something that might be close to tasting that good.
I also enjoy the Maxwell House French Roast and suggest you try the Gevalia Dark Italian Roast or the Gevalia Dark Breakfast Blend. Both are produced in over-sized T-Discs and really deliver on bold coffee flavor.

is this also a small cup?

is the size of the cup comparable to the Mastro Lorezo Crema?
Yes, it is small, similar to the M.L., but I like the taste better than the Mastro Lorenzo Brand.

Why can't we get a decent large pour from you guys? When you got rid of Starbucks there is nothing more than a small European pour.

I recommend you try the Kenco Medium Roast. It makes a very tasty, full-size cup cup of coffee, comparable to a medium roast Starbucks blend.
