Created with 100% Arabica beans, the Maxwell House Café Collection Morning Blend is pleasantly mild to ease into the day. Our advanced barcode system brews a larger serving of this aromatic delight for 12 fl oz of pure bliss.

I am a pretty hard core coffee drinker, so I was surprised that I found this coffee to be so strong in taste. I've been adding water to it to temper it down, which works well. The size is good (it fills my 16 oz commuter cup), but I suggest letting the coffee "breathe" before you drink it... or add more water. Again, I love that Tassimo gets the temperature right each and every time; my coffee is very, very hot, which I appreciate.

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.

I got this flavor on sale and since I'm new to Tassimo, I won't say it's my "favorite" yet, but it is in my #1 spot for now. It isn't too sweet, and it has a rich flavor, creamy texture. It's easier than I thought to make! Very 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.

After debating on which brewer to buy (K versus T), a friend turned me on to Tassimo... and now I know there is NO competition. This brewer is the best thing I've ever brought for my home. An espresso lover, I got tired of the inconsistent quality of my local coffee house (and the cost). Now, I can have lattes, cappuccinos, mochas on demand... and they taste great each and every time. It's smart, quick and easy to use for the most part. I love my Tassimo!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Reprogramming the machine

How can I reprogram this machine? It only makes a 1/4 cup of coffee.
Either you have a faulty machine, or you are using huge cups (ha ha). If you use a "standard" sized, 12 oz cup, I find my machine will fill up about 3/4, but that's with espresso drinks. I find the coffee fills up a commuter cup; mine is 16 oz.

If it isn't working that way for you, I'd call customer service. You might have a damaged machine.

Hope that helps!

How do you make a large cup?

I read the book adn I still cannot figure out how to make a alrge cup, when I push the button with the plus sign above the cup it just adds more water.Any suggestions?
When you say "large," how large are you talking about?

If you want a cup of coffee that will fill a 16 oz commuter cup, the Maxwell House coffees do it automatically... to the brim. However, if you are talking about a huge 24 oz or larger, press and hold the brew button when it lights up under the coffee + side. It does add more water, but remember that your T disc is still in the machine, so it isn't plain, clear water. You have to gauge when you are done... don't hold it too long, or you'll overflow your cup.

Hope that helps!

WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN THE RED LIGHT GOES ON

CAN'T FOND MY DIRECTIONS
Either you need to add water (if the red light shows on the bottom right), or you need to descale your machine (if the red light shows up on the bottom right). You can get descaler from a home goods store, like Bed Bath & Beyond for under $8.

Coffee is not HOT!!!

I have the TAS4513US RED. The coffee and cream is just not coming out hot. It's just warm, is there away to make the coffee hot?

I've brewed espresso drinks and cocoa; they each finish with different temperatures. Cappuccino is the hottest so far; latte is hot (much hotter than my local coffee shop), and the cocoa is more warm than hot. I know that the coffee brews at a different temperature as well. Maybe you have a faulty unit?

Does this machine automatically froth the milk

Is this a one step process? Does it make the cappochino and dispense the froth at the same time?
It is a two step, easy process, and I think it depends on the brand you get. I got Gevalia:the milk is loaded first and it comes out frothy. The espresso is next. I found it to be very, very good, smooth and creamy.
