I wasn’t sure what to expect from Maxwell House but I was pleasantly surprised. This is just as good if not better than any other French roast I’ve had from any other single serve machine. All that at a reasonable price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.

Voluptuous by name and by nature, this coffee boasts a well-rounded flavour beneath its light, frothy head.Enjoy its smooth, velvet texture with the utmost convenience with TASSIMO T DISC pods.
 

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.

Made from high-quality 100% Arabica beans, Maxwell House Cafe Collection French Vanilla serves up a smooth cup of medium-roast coffee that never fails to delight, especially when brewed in your TASSIMO brewer.
 

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.
