I wanted to get away from the Gevalia Capuccino duo as I did not care for their Espresso by itself at all.
After checking out the other available brands and comparing the reviews of this brand and the Carte Noir, I settled on the Masto Lorenzo.
Wow! What a wonderful improvement. Not bitter like the Gevalia , but smooth and enjoyable with creamer or without. ;)
I plan on purchasing many more of this brand.
Yes, I recommend this product.

As others have mentioned...I also tried this blend because it was on sale... I was looking for a more economical choice to the Gevalia Morning Roast that I love...and you can never go wrong with a good Columbian.
I was very happy with my choice..I just wish they would make a larger version for my morning commuter cup like the Gevalia brand did ...
It is a great everyday blend. I plan on ordering more of this in the future.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have been trying various brands after going completely gaga over all the great Gevalia brands available when I first purchased my Tassimo. I am looking for replacements/variations for my morning blend, cappucino etc... Just seeing what other great stuff Tassimo has available...
I found this on sale and I loved the description of its fruity taste & the Carte Noir reputation,so I decided to try it. I am so glad I did. I love it. I find it even better with just a bit of the latte disc added. (I brew the creamer directly into my small stainless pitcher left over from my old hit & miss Espresso/Capuccino machine .
Delicioso! Give it a try if you are looking for a small strong cup of sweet goodness that tastes oh-so European.. I dont drink any coffee black but it was tolerable without cream as well as it has a thin little crema layer that I really enjoy as is as well. ;)
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.

I tried this and was hugely disappointed. This is different than the Gevalia Caramel Latte Macchiato where the caramel flavoring is in the espresso t-disc. With this Jacobs offering, the flavoring is in the Latte creamer disc instead.
Big mistake, but seeing that I am not a fan of Jacobs coffee as a whole (bitter, acidic) I dont think it would have mattered much either way. Even with a better espresso to start with, the creamer would still have been weak and lacking in flavour.
Stick with Gevalia's or make a regular latte and add your own caramel syrup...just don't use Jacobs brand Espresso.. unless a weaker, less-rich drink is what you prefer.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Don't let your love of a tasty treat get in the way of a healthy lifestyle! With 40% fewer calories than regular Gevalia Cappuccino, Gevalia Skinny Cappuccino offers a sensible taste sensation with the touch of a button. The melodious fusion of bold espresso and frothy non-fat milk creamer delivers supreme satisfaction.

I knew I would have to get this low fat version as soon as I first tried my Tassimo...... as I knew I would be drinking Capuccino's everyday! Even easier than using an Espresso machine!
I chose these (Gevalia's low-fat capuccino) as my free packs for registering my machine.. I am so proud of myself! They are never in stock so I scored. And these are just as delicious as the full calorie versions!
and for all those people looking for ingredients and calories..I say.."If you have to worry so much about what you put in your body every minute, go have a water and keep execising!" Make your low-fat coffee one thing you relax and enjoy guilt free! Is knowing how many calories you saved really that big a deal? It should be enough you made the better, fat-free choice. relax! lol
Yes, I recommend this product.

With one touch of a button, find yourself transported to a toasty lodge in the snow-covered Alps. Gently roasted Swiss Hazelnut from Gevalia offers a beautiful blend of Arabica beans and soft hazelnut flavor, delivering the satisfying smoothness you desire.

I loved it. Another winner as far as I'm concerned. IMO, you cant go wrong with Gevalia "anything"...
For a real treat , I use with a Suchards Cocoa or a bit of Tassimo creamer.

If you prefer a big cup of java to start the day, Gevalia Morning Roast is just what you need. Your TASSIMO brewer knows exactly how to brew this larger 12-fl oz serving of 100% Arabica coffee, serving up a smile with every sip.

..some don't care for this and down-grade it so strongly. I thought it was very good. I love a good cup of coffee but have had issues with many brands, types, grinds being too acidic as I get older and my stomach gets more sensitive. (Stupid stomach! lol)
I receive some of this ( Gevalia Morning Roast) with my new machine and loved the large size and everything else for my morning coffee at the Dog Park. No acidic reaction etc on an empty stomach,too! I love it ! No complaints at all!

You'll swear you just stepped into a coffee shop with one taste this strong and smooth Cappuccino. The intense flavor and inviting aroma of Gevalia Espresso is topped with a light-as-air layer of foam from our real milk creamer for a heavenly helping of happiness.

yum yum yum! This is my new addiction. Tassimo..I will say it again.. ::sniff sniff:: I Love You...:::sniff sniff..forever & ever. ;)
Seriously.... A very nice , well balanced, full-bodied capuccino. I made it as specified and added a little extra sweetness with the creamer and topped with a dash of cinnamon, as I prefer, and it was on par with any fine establishments after dinner treat. like that if you want a double you simply can add another espresso pod. (hitting the "more" button gives you more water through the same pod making your brew weaker, not stronger. Someone mistakenly thought it made it stronger...)
I want the skinny versions back in stock however, as I can see me drinking these every day. (-_-)
Yes, I recommend this product.

Others seem to think this a mild brew but I like that it is strong on flavour but not acidic or sour. I have had issues with dark roast coffee as I get older, so I was looking for a mild blend. I lucked out and got some free with purchase. I added a creamer pod to this nice big mug and it was frickin delicious! As my first cup with my new brew-bot, I am already so in love with this little gadget.I love coffee & have always owned an espresso or capuccino machine/french press etc.. over the last 30 years , so this is a breeze to work! Swore only 1 cup per day but had to finish the day with a Gevalia Capucciino. YUM! ..but that's another review entirely. :) On to the Vanilla and Hazelnut blends!
Yes, I recommend this product.

How much does one T Disc make?

The Product Details and reviews do not identify the amount of espresso brewed in a single cup. Is this a typical demitasse cup, medium, or "American" serving (ranging from 2 oz to 7 oz)?
THANKS for the clarification!
Demi-tasse/Espresso cup sized..

What coffees would be the gentlest on a stomach?

I am looking for coffees with full flavor that are "easy" on the stomach. Any suggestions?

Thanks
I have stomach issues but have to admit..I have not had any issues with any of the blends I have tried so far...not a one...Not sure why this is but I am ecstatic.

okay..maybe a bit of trouble because I am drinking far too many cups now, due to this fact..But , I am totally enjoying my love of coffee again and it is great.

You can check the blends I have tried so far by checking out my other reviews. ;) Hope this helps.

I need a replacement for the Starbucks Verona. So far, Tassimo Columbian and Maxwell House French Roast are a bust.

have you checked out the new Dark selections as of late...?

Why such a limited selection of coffees compared to Kuerig?

Keurig can have a ton o' pods (and they do!) but they all basically taste the same due to the inferior system, so who cares..lol.

Remember ..quality *vs* quantity ? Tassimo='s quality, while Keurig merely ='s quantity..I'll take quality everytime...unless it is a huge QUANTITY of QUALITY TASSIMO DISCS..LOL

Why would Tassimo stop selling Starbucks Coffee and not have a plane to replace with a comparable bold coffee selection?

The only reason I bought this machine was because of the Starbucks coffee. Without it , this machine is rendered useless for me . None of the lame coffees you offer are bold enough. I will be leaving my Tassimo machine out on the curb next June for the next "junk" pick-up.
I think they already solved that issue..I see a whole new selection of bold roast blends..they must be listening to you..;)
