A dark roast, full-bodied selection with an extra bold taste that is both sharp and intense. Made with 100% high quality Arabica beans, this complex and hearty blend is reminiscent of the finest cafés in Italy.

This is just amazing! It is such a strong bold taste, without the bitterness. I would buy a Tassimo just for this coffee alone. I don't have to have 5,000 types of regular coffee, when one does the job. :)
Yes, I recommend this product.

Why even consider K-cups anymore?

I stumbled on Tassimo after I was looking for another K-cup machine (I wanted to take my old one to work, and have a new one for the house). The lady that was demoing (if that's a word..lol) the Keurig Vue actually told me about Tassimo. She did me the BIGGEST favor ever. I bought the T55, and love it!! I love it so much that I bought another one for work. I still have my Cuisinart K-cup machine, but I'm not sure I ever really want to use it again. I had over 40 people over yesterday over for Christmas, and literally brewed that many drinks, if not more, as some people had 2nds and 3rds. Not one person didn't finish his/her drink, and 3 of the Keurig people have decided to buy one of the Tassimos now. I do have to say that we all prefer the beverages at the more concentrated level, so the T55 is perfect for that, since I can select that ahead of time. The normal strength brew is just too watery for us, however for normal coffee it's fine. You can't go wrong with this machine...it takes me back to my days in Europe!
Yes, I recommend this product.

For an intensely aromatic treat that's one part espresso, one part milkiness and all-around delicious, brew up a steaming cup of JACOBS Latte Macchiato. A dash of sweetness adds a pleasing touch, and with the simple push of a button, this quality beverage is ready to serve within seconds.

This is seriously awesome! I seem to prefer everything on the more concentrated brew, so that is how I brew this. I made a box of it yesterday, for all different people, and every single one of them loved it. In fact, 3 of the people are buying a Tassimo now. :)
Yes, I recommend this product.

Make it an evening to remember with this Peppermint Mocha. Dark chocolate syrup and peppermint flavors perfectly complement the rich taste of Gevalia Espresso, delivering satisfaction with the push of a button. A great choice for a chilly day, this blend will warm your heart and tickle your taste buds. *Due to limited availability this item is currently only available for one time purchases.

Only Good on the Strong Function Brew

The first time I made this, it was pretty watery, and not something I would want to try again. I made it on the strong brew, and it was very good. I'm giving it 4 stars because it is not drinkable under the normal setting.
Yes, I recommend this product.

We blended the smooth flavor of vanilla and sweet steamed milk to make a vanilla latté that is anything but.

I usually prefer my lattes on the sweet side, so I was shocked that I fell in love with this. It is so smooth, and even with the normal strength brew, it was a full-tasting latte. Many of the other drinks I have made, I have had to make on the strong setting, in order to not get the watered down taste, but not this one. I highly recommend this. High end latte flavor here.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Jacobs Caramel Latte Macchiato?

I am in love with the Jacobs Latte Macchiato, but I saw the Caramel version on a European grocer site, and I would LOVE to try it. Any chance that you will get it in stock? How about the Jacobs XL crema? Since I'm asking, can I be bold and ask for the other Twinings tea brands too? :)

Keep your TASSIMO machine running smoothly with the help of our Descaling Powder. Non-toxic and bio-degradable, this specially formulated powder quickly descales your brewer, ensuring a fresh and tasty brew each and every time. Includes four single-use packets.
 

Descaling and the filter

When you descale, should you remove the filter before putting the descale powder in the unit?

The TASSIMO T20 Single Cup Brewing System by Bosch is designed with an eco-friendly, on-demand water heater for fast brewing. Just pop in your favorite coffee or tea T DISC pod, and 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. The T20 is more than a coffee maker, it provides a café experience in a stylish, easy to use compact system that offers three machine color options. You can also change up the backsplash and cup stand with different color kits. It is more than just a coffee maker.
 

No filter in T20?

When I chose the T20 for work, I used the comparison option on the website. It said that the T20 has the Mavea filter as well. I also bought the T55 for home and appreciated the Mavea filter. Now I'm reading that the T20 doesn't have a filter? I wish I would have known so that I just purchased another T55 for work. Can you let me know one way or another?
Thanks!

Taste?

I bought this and the whole tassimo system yesterday. I was excited to make it, with all of the good reviews, but it seems watered down to me. Actually, so far everything I've made seems like that unless I make the concentrated version. Does anyone else feel the same way? Any advice?

Price question

Hello,
Why is this $20 more than the T55 at Bed Bath and Beyond? Is there a difference?

Thanks,
Nancy

What is the difference between T55 and T65..?

I think the only difference is the LCD panel. I spoke with Tassimo last week, and they told me that the T65 was being discontinued, so I went ahead and bought the T55 at Bed Bath and Beyond. I love it so much, I bought another one for work. And this is coming from someone who has been using k-cups for the last 2 years. You will love the T55. The filter is pretty cool too.
