I have a tassimo. For general purpose coffee maker, it’s better than the keurig. The tassimo actually read the bar-code of the disc and adjust the amount and temperature of the water for whatever it is you put into it (the keurig does not). Unfortunately, they lost the advertising war, so there aren’t nearly as many coffees available for it anymore.
For espresso, Nespresso is amazing. They have a pretty thorough range of espresso types. The hold up is that they are on the pricey side. It?s also a much smaller company and they are the only ones that make the pods. It also only does straight espresso, no tea or creamers or hot chocolate or anything.[/quote]
Green Mountain Coffee is in some trouble and their stocks took a huge hit recently. Their licenses are ending with a lot of the specialty brands and I there was some talk of partnering with Starbucks but I think Starbucks is going to make their own K-cups, so their whole “razor and blade” business model fell apart.
A lot of the specialty brands may start doing Tassimo discs after their contracts are up.
