Review: Carte Noire Petite Dejeuner Coffee T Discs for Tassimo
We 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
We'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.
