KAFFEE HAG Crema Decaf
Decaf drinkers everywhere - there IS good news. The Hag Creme decaf is a full flavored cup of real coffee. I've tried the Gevalia Signature Decaf, and the Maxwell House Decaf but neither satisfied me. I even tried using the Gevalia Decaf Espresso and adding more hot water, which was okay, but not great. The Hag Creme is now my GO-TO morning coffee. It's delicious and the creme gives it body. It is a slightly smaller European serving, but filled my 11 oz mug three quarters full, so it's just enough. It's not always available on My Tassimo, though, so watch for specials, then pounce. It's worth it! I used to make my coffee in a French Press. This is much easier.

It's not the Lone Ranger
It's not good enough to stand on it's own because it is too bitter and it tastes like a cheap product. But it makes a good base for a latte. If you have a spiced creamer that you like, then it will probably work for you. I used these two flavors of Coffee-Mate: Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Chai (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup) and a lot of sugar. With this combination, it tastes good. I couldn't tell it was a decaf. If I didn't add the flavoring, it would be in the toilet.

This is the second best drip coffee I have ever had.
And that is saying something. The only drip that has it beat is Starbuck's clover drip coffee, made like they make it best, one cup at a time.

Love, love, love
After trying the Gevalia Signature Blend decaf and Maxwell house decaf, I was a little worried I wouldn't find any really good decaf options and that I'd made the wrong decision of buying the Tassimo instead of Keurig. But when I tried the HAG Crema, I was more than pleasantly surprised. It is hands down the best decaf I've ever had, and is now my every day cup of coffee. And the frothy crema on top is an added bonus to an already perfect cup of coffee.
