GEVALIA Signature Crema Coffee
Excited then disappointed.
Tasted watery and burnt at the same time. Smells good while brewing. Not even adding some creamer saved this one. I have really liked the espresso based drinks of gevalia and was excited to try this crema style t-disc but this one was really a letdown.

Love this coffee
I drink it black and love it. It is a medium strength coffee and I also love the crema.

Way too weak!!
This was so weak and tasted to unlike coffee to me, that I had to add instant espresso to make "drinkable". I was originally attracted to buying this flavor because of the " creamy foam finish". I thought it would be like Cuban Coffee,
Unfortunately, I ended up throwing out all of it. I only drank 2 discs worth.
I have been more than 100% satisfied by all the Tassimo beverages. They beat Koerig, hands down, every time. (Except this one :(). I would love to try one of the stronger ones, but can't bring myself to take a chance.
For now, just hoping for a Vanilla Soy Creamer for my Espressos!

Not what I was expecting...
This was one of the coffees I was most looking forward to. The reviews were consistently excellent, and for some it is the coffee of choice for the Tassimo. However, it was not at all what I was expecting, based on my experience with the excellent Mastro Lorenzo Crema.
The Gevalia Signature Crema brews a much larger cup. At 11 oz, it's nearly three times the size of the Mastro Lorenzo. And I think this is ultimately the source of my disappointment. There's just not enough coffee there to match the flavor and mouth feel of the smaller crema in a larger size.
With the Geval Sig Crema, I get a rather watery cup of coffee that tastes over-brewed and has little of the body and creamy texture of the Mastro Lorenzo. Even adding a little half-and-half doesn't help.
For now, I'll be passing on this one.
