The reason is Tassimo the brand is owned by Kraft Foods and they only allow their machine to work with the Kraft brands Gevalia, Maxwell House... So if "ACME Coffee" made by another company wants to produce T-Discs they can not. Where as Keurig (a much simpeler design no bar code) will let anyone make K-Cups. Much like an Apple computer you will never get a virus, you will have better customer service, a better experience all around but you can not use 85% of the applications that exist. Tassimo makes a better cup of coffee and a better experience all around but if you want Green Mountain butter truffel crem brulee mocha chocolate irish cream coffee not going to happen. You have basically two big widely available brands Maxwell House And Gevalia with mild, medium, bold, and extra bold.
