Revisiting the Tassimo Single Serve Coffee Maker
As the summer draws to an end and we're getting ready for back to school and other fall wonders, we thought we'd point out a set of articles we ran earlier in the year detailing a return to Tassimo and a re-review of sorts.
Here's a look back at Tassimo over the last few months and some recent reviews:

No wonder I haven't been able to find this. I don't want to buy another Cappuccino or Latte box because I have enough of the milk creamers. My husband has used up a few of my decaf espresso by mistake.
Is there any kind of expiration date on those milk creamers?
Also, it would be nice if the stores would include sale of the cleaning discs, as they are so small and easily mistaken for caps and thrown out.
Sadly, I would not recommend a Tassimo. The build quality seems shabby in comparison to the Keurig or Bunn models, and the quality of the cappucino's and lattes is iffy (at best), in my opinion. The milk has a weird taste to it that just doesn't seem right. The coffee that is available in Canada is Maxwell House and Nabob; these are both insipid. Other than that, you have a passable espresso, a horrible Crema and so so hot chocolate that I've tried.
Of course, in another country, maybe the Tassimo is a wonderful machine (and as Wayne of Wayne'sd World used to say 'and monkeys might fly outta my butt'.
Looks like Tassimo.com is running a similar promotion to Senseo's. While they aren't giving away their Tassimo machines (darn), they do seem to be preparing for a Home Party of sorts where you can get sent free T-discs and the like to throw a coffee party for friends.
Right now there is just a signup sheet to get notified of when registration opens though.
