Yuban 100% Colombian
This is a wonderful medium roast for the price!
For comparison, my favorite Tassimo coffees are Kenco Medium Roast, Nabob, Maxwell House, and Kenco Columbian. All are medium roast with the exception of Kenco Columbian. I also have some Jacobs Kronung, Maxwell House Cappuccino and Corner Coffee House Vanilla Latte I drink once in awhiile.
I thought the Yuban was very, very rich tasting with absolutely no bitterness. It is very smooth, aromatic and leaves no aftertaste. I will most likely not buy Nabob anymore. I like Nabob, but the Yuban 100% Columbian has a better, milder taste. I drink my coffee black without sugar, so I tend to favor medium roast coffees. Kenco Medium Roast is heaven to me, and Yuban is right next to it.
If you like bold, dark roast coffees, you might try Yuban as its flavor is quite good. I cannot comment on how it would hold up with sugar and cream in it. Hopefully, ok. Thanks.

I love this coffee! I like the price too. I like it better than Nabob, which was my favorite before I tried this.

nice for the price
This is one of the best priced coffees for Tassimo locally. It is definitely not weak (for a medium roast) and certainly doesn't look like tea in a cup. Maybe that reviewer got a bad batch? And why would someone looking for a very bold coffee, choose a medium roast coffee?
All in all this is a decent cup of coffee, a step up in flavor from Maxwell house. My favorites are Gevalia Columbian and Tim Horton's. I don't like coffees that are too bold or heavily roasted.

Wow! I was so excited to see that Tassimo was carrying Yuban discs. Yuban is my choice for coffee when i brew a full pot. What a disappointment! When brewed it looks like tea....VERY WEAK tea. A total waste of money.
