GEVALIA Signature Crema Coffee
So far I like this flavor
With reviews all over the board for this variety of T-disc, I was a little reluctant to make this my first experience with a crema, but since I had won a huge bag of these discs off of ebay figured I'd give it a chance. The discs that I have are fairly old (i.e. expired), so I had even lower expectations of them.
Fortunately, my fears were unfounded. The Gevalia Signature Crema is very smooth, aromatic and has a nice flavor to it - right in line with a medium roast. I also love the foam on top. I did wind up adding steamed half and half and a shot of Torani caramel syrup to it, just for kicks.
This made a nice "reading the news after work" drink.
It's neither watery nor burnt like some of the other reviews suggest. This could be in part due to the difference in batches with my old discs compared to newer ones - not sure.
I'll definitely buy more of these when I run out.

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!
