Design flaw, and poor tasting coffee
None of our standard, regular sized coffee mugs fit, unless we remove the "cup stand", and then coffee seams to spit and spew all over the place since the mug is then too far below the coffee spout! We have also tried about 6 different flavors of coffee, and they are all pretty bad tasting. The flavors that include the "milk pods" are decent, but something doesn't taste quite right, like the milk has a funny taste. The plain coffee beverages we have tried are either REALLY bitter, or REALLY weak. Even the bold french roast coffee is somewhat weak and watery. I'm really disappointed since I had high hopes that the Tassimo would be better than their top competitor that I've been using for years...But, sadly, I'm returning it to the store, and might even go back to using a standard, old, boring coffee pot!

My husband purchased the T55 for me for Christmas. It was clearly the only option, since I prefer lattes, mochas and cappachinos. It's fast and makes an awesome coffee shop style coffee for way less. I'm enjoying trying all of the flavors and after registering here online, I received 2 free disc packs.

Love my Tassimo!
I recently took back my Kureg that I have had for almost a year to Bed, Bath & Beyond where I purchased it. I had been having allot of problems with it and they said I could exchange it for a new one. There was no way I was getting another one.They recommended that I try the Tassimo. I bought the T45 and absolutely love it. I love that I can make coffee, latte's, hot chocolate and espresso. I love making the Caramel Macchiato with an extra regular espresso added to it.I am not sure why consumer Reports does not rate this well but I love it!

I purchased the T55 as a Christmas gift for myself this year. I have been using the Cuisnart K-cup brewer which was good but the T55 surpasses it. The coffee brewed with the T55 is equal to the better local specialty coffee shops. I have used it daily and am completely satisfied.
