I sipped some of this last night out of a Tassimo Bormioli mug and it was a life altering experience. OK, maybe not life altering but it was unlike any coffee experience I’ve ever had. The flavor and the aroma played together so nicely. The flavor slowly built as to not overtake your taste buds. Then it passed through to a nice lingering finish that leaves you excited for the next sip. This isn’t a coffee you want to chug so take your time with it, you’ll be glad you did.

My mugs arrived yesterday and I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome these things are. They are the perfect delivery method for a quality coffee, much like the right wine glass for a cabernet or beer glass for a stout. I sipped some Carte Noire Voluptuoso Corse out of one last night and it was much more than a cup of coffee….it was an experience. The double wall holds the heat while shielding your hands all while being visually appealing. The curved lip allows the coffee to glide over the edge and gently tumble onto your taste buds. At the same time the wide mouth allows the aroma to rise up and meet your nose in perfect harmony. The overall shape of the glass also makes it easy to give your coffee a little swirl, releasing even more aroma just before bringing it up for a sip. Another feature I like is how the Tassimo logo is printed on the outside surface of the inside wall. This means that the logo will never wear off. I can’t wait to go home and have another experience.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Yummy creamy goodness. I would like a little stronger espresso flavor but as a dairy fan I find it hard to not like the rich creamy flavor of the froth.

A nice strong cup but can be a little flat on the finish. I enjoyed it enough to drink more but I expected a more robust aftertaste. I will also be trying the other extra bold varieties from Gevalia.

This is a pretty good cup of coffee. Although not my favorite that Tassimo has to offer I will surely be drinking more of it. It has a good aroma and color. Decent body but can be slightly bitter on the finish.

This is a really good French Vanilla. It gives you the inviting aroma you would expect from the vanilla without the fake overpowering flavor that some vanillas can give you. The flavoring plays well with the roast of the coffee rather than trying to take it over.

Chocolate syrup? What a novel idea. I don’t know why anyone would want to pay good money for a cup filled with hot chocolate flavored powder. With that stuff you still have to stir it after it’s brewed and it still tastes like gritty brown water. Unfortunately I wasted my money on that before I got my Tassimo. Thank you Tassimo for making a real hot chocolate that’s ready to drink right away. This is the only hot chocolate from any single serve machine that my daughter will drink.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I pointed this out to my wife in the store and she said that she has never liked any caramel flavored coffee drink. She said that she likes the idea of caramel in coffee but just doesn’t like the end result. We left the store that day without getting any. About a week later I came across it again. I figured I would pick it up since we have plenty of friends and family that like caramel macchiatos I knew it wouldn’t go to waste. I made myself a cup when I got home and was completely surprised how good it was. Not only was I surprised but my wife has now found the only caramel coffee drink she has ever liked.
Yes, I recommend this product.

My wife is a mocha snob and there are only two coffee houses she will actually order them from. However, thanks to Tassimo we no longer have to go to either of them anymore. We’ve tried mochas from 2 other single serve brands (who shall remain nameless) and they weren’t even drinkable. Not only is the Tassimo Mocha drinkable, it is fantastic!

If you could burn water, this is what it would taste like-- no coffee flavor at all, more like licking an ashtray.

Keep in mind that this is French Roast and not French Vanilla. A French Roast coffee comes from beans that have been roasted until very dark. This creates a very strong, hardy coffee. It may not be for everyone but Maxwell House did a very good job getting this one right.

I too enjoy Gevalia’s Dark Morning Blend but it doesn’t quite have the finish of a French roast. The Gevalia may be a little more complex throughout but it fades at the end. The Maxwell House (surprisingly) has that smoky, roasted finish I look for in a French roast. I will be trying the other Gevalia extra bold flavors and I have high hopes for the Italian Roast.

Still confused by the Pour Size?

I'm considering trying the Gevalia Dark Italian Roast because I'm very encouraged by it's reviews, but I might like to try some others as well. Why does the description for this say 11 oz if it' only gives you ~ 4 oz per disc??
I believe the item description has been updated. I too ordered this when the description read 11oz. At first I was a little disappointed when I read it later at 4oz. However, these coffees come directly from the country of the brand’s origin. Because of that they are designed to brew to the expectations of the consumers in that country. European expectations of coffee differ from ours here in the States. You can hold your brew button down at the end of the brew cycle to run more water through the disc. However, after trying this at 4oz I was completely pleased and left satisfied after slowly taking my time with it. I may not be using this as my every day, pull out a travel mug coffee but it is a nice treat at the end of the day in front of the fire.

Free gift for registering

I registered my new Tassimo brewing system this evening, however, I'm not sure how to go about getting my free t-discs that's offered with registering. Is just 2 discs of a random brand sent to me, or do I get to choose which ones I would like to sample? On the website, I could not find any additional information on the free t discs. Please let me know what I need to do. Thank you!
You may already have your discs but just in case I will offer my help.

Once you complete the registration form and create your account you will be able to navigate the entire selection of discs. Once you add your 2 selections to the cart you will be able to check out with a zero balance.
