Rated 5 out of 5 by Katiedyd Love the creamer
I have used the Tassimo system for years!! What I dislike is milk or skim milk in my coffee-- YUCK!. The creamer works for me. The best is that is goes in hot and keeps my coffee hot. I love the creamer with the espresso. For me its the perfect combination, for I like a sweeter espresso and coffee.
I have tried the other systems at my friends, and do not prefer the powered additions from the competition. I have read other reviews, and I agree, this is not an Espresso System, but its close enough for me. especially first thing in the morning getting ready for work. I simple don't have the time nor the extra money for an espresso machine!
Some more flavors on the espresso's would be nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mrscw66 too much cream
I really dislike the all the milk creamers that Tassimo has to offer - all the lattes and cappuccinos, mochas, etc, have cream in them! A true latte or cappuccino does not have cream (half and half), just milk. A Cafe au Lait is a coffee drink with steamed half and half; A Breve is espresso with steamed half and half and foam. That is what Tassimo's lattes and cappuccinos are really making - Breves. I have yet to try the "skinny" cappuccino, but I know there's no cream, just milk, so I hope that tastes better. I bought my Tassimo specifically to be able to make lattes and mochas quickly, instead of using my espresso machine (I have been a barista in Seattle for years so I know my coffee!). Instead I am now taking extra time to heat up my own milk and froth it to go with an espresso pod. Tassimo really needs to increase the variety of drinks available, and make more non-cream plain and flavored lattes. I'm considering returning mine. I'm disappointed, really wanted this to work for me and my family.

Rated 3 out of 5 by opaa too sweet and overpowers the espresso
The creamer is overpowering (sweet Non-milk tasting. However, if you discard a small portion of the creamer before adding the coffee its good.

This is why I purchased this machine instead of the Keurig thing.
I have coffee in the morning, but love the idea of having a expresso or adding the foaming milk to the hot chocolate.. all kinds of fun..
Love it tons.
