We just received the T47 as a warranty replacement for our T45 which we had for about 4 months. We had to send that one back because it was failing. The T47 works well, the coffee tastes great and we're overall very happy with it except it is very loud during operation. It sounds similar to a coffee grinder machine (that same loud motor sound). It's a little disturbing first thing in the morning. I wish they could make a quieter model.
Other than that, however, we're very happy with the coffee. My husband swears that the Gevalia Dark House Blend #purple label) tastes exactly like Starbucks. He is very picky about his coffee, and this gets his seal of approval.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A comforting cup of hot chocolate from one of Europe's premier chocolatiers, brewed to creamy perfection in your TASSIMO® machine. This rich chocolate experience is a perfect indulgence for a little pick-me-up in the afternoon.

If you know the bottled chocolate drink called YooHoo, that's what this hot chocolate tastes like. It doesn't have a rich, creamy flavor at all. It's very watery, like chocolate flavored water. I checked the pod after brewing and it did use all the syrup, so it wasn't a case of chocolate being left in the pod.
I do not recommend this product. A packet of Swiss Miss tastes way better than this, which is a shame because Swiss Miss is nothing to write home about. I will not be buying this product again.
No, I do not recommend this product.

A dark roast, medium-bodied coffeehouse quality selection that has hints of fruit and vibrant acidity. This clean, crisp cup of coffee is made with 100% high quality Arabica beans sourced from excellent coffee growing areas of Latin America.

I don't drink coffee but I bought a Tassimo brewer for my husband and he has now tried 7 or 8 different coffee types. He has decided that the Gevalia Dark House Blend is THE one to buy him going forward. He says that while others are good (Kona, Columbia, etc.), this is the one that he wants to be his go-to coffee every morning. He actually thinks about it when he goes to sleep at night, anticipating waking up and having this coffee. It makes him very happy!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Does the T47 use the Mavea water filter?

No, this model does not have a filter option. (The prior discontinued model T45 used the Mavea filter). I would recommend getting a PUR or Brita filter pitcher and then use the pitcher water to fill your Tassimo tank.
