Review: Carte Noire Petite Dejeuner Coffee T Discs for Tassimo

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 2547We are really excited to see Tassimo US importing new coffees for the Tassimo brewing system for sale here in the US. The new blend is available at the TassimoDirect.com web site and is one of 4 new blends to be brought over from Europe. We decided to start with the Petite Dejeuner because we love a good light breakfast coffee and so far Tassimo had not had much variety in the single serve coffee market in this area.

We also thought we'd include our first video using You Tube for you to hear and see the coffee brewing in the Tassimo. Often we hear complaints on how loud and crazy the Tassimo is while brewing. We don't find this to be the case. It's definitely not in the quiet department, but it really isn't that loud. Since the Tassimo using a pumping method to brew the coffee in the T Disc, you can hear the pump being used while it brews. It kind of sounds like a toy tommy gun from our youth.

How good is the Carte Noire Petite Dejeuner coffee? How does it stack up against other Tassimo coffee or other single serve coffee we've had?

Tasting the Carte Noire Petite Dejeuner

Img 2549We'll get it right off our chest - this is a fine cup of coffee. We like the round flavor and the sharp bite of this coffee. The coffee is definitely a medium roast with a strong aroma. The coffee comes across with all coffee flavor and is smooth until the end. This is much better than some of the Gevalia coffees we've had from the Tassimo.

We also made several cups of other breakfast blend coffees. The Green Mountain Breakfast blend for Keurig and also Timothy's Breakfast blend coffee pods using the Bunn My Cafe. The Carte Noire Petite Dejeuner held up, but we did prefer the boldness of the Timothy's Breakfast blend coffee pods over the Tassimo coffee.

We think you'll like the Carte Noire Petit Dejeuner. Imported from Europe exclusively for TASSIMO and packed in 16 T DISCS per package at a cost of $6.29 per package.

We're going to give this coffee a solid 3 out of 5 cups. Nothing stunning just good coffee.

I would order from CoffeeWhiz.com or other places online that will allow for the different address.

If you order from Tassimo's site, you can't have the product shipped to a different address from the one on your credit card! I can't receive packages at home, and usually have them shipped to work. However, Tassimo won't let me do this! I am interested in trying the Carte Noire and other non-Gevalia t-disks reviewed in this article, but I don't know where I can get them other than the Tassimo site. Any ideas?
