Seattle's Best Tassimo T Discs
We just received the latest Wired magazine, and sure enough, there are Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs listed on the bottom of the advertisement for Tassimo. We've been hearing rumors from the Single Serve Coffee Forums, that on the back of every TassimoDirect.com receipt Tassimo listed Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs as an option. We can now confirm this is true.
We are really excited about this news. Since Starbuck's owns Seattle's Best, perhaps this is their way of testing the single serve coffee waters. Whatever the case may be, we can't wait to try the new Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs. We'll have more news and reviews of the Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs as it happens.

Yes, the coffee is great, but the machine seems to have one major flaw in its design aside from the high price of coffee discs. I am a frustrated owner, I know it all too well. The problem lies in their air pump technology, which lacks any consistency to its air pressure levels that should push ALL the remaining liquid out of those T-Discs (milk discs included) after the water pump has completed its pumping. Often it pushes out a very small amount after the water pump has done its part, leaving me with the mess all over disc insertion area when removing the dispensed discs. The remaining liquid spills all over in addition to poor dispensing effectively cheating me out of my full cup-o-Joe and frustrating the heck out of me in the process. So much for the "quick and easy" they are trying to make us believe in. The first machine didn't even last me for 6 months before I had to return it for repair. After a month or so the "repaired" machine came back to me in the worse condition than before and I had to open it up to find out what's wrong. They apparently didn't fix a damn thing, just shipped it right back to me and the air pump which is really held by some rubber holster dislodged itself. I have tried to disassemble it (it's a ridiculously simple design with one membrane), clean it, assemble it again, blow through its hoses, do an "Indian make-my-Tassimo-work-again dance" and all sorts of Voodoo on it, but to no avail. It works for couple of days and then it starts doing the same crap. After a while I've got tired of it, it's in the attic now, where it should remain - FOREVER!!!!
Tassimo is the easiest way of getting a consistently good cup of coffee. Can't wait for SBC discs. My largest complain concerning the machine and discs is that I get grounds in my coffee about 35-40% of the time. I have worked with the company, their repair service and replacement parts. They finally sent me a new machine but it has not improved the grounds problem.
When? When?! I remember SBC before they renamed it SBC, and as an Emerald City native was disturbed to hear that Starbucks (Fourbucks, as my friend calls it) had bought them out. Nonetheless, startlingly terrific coffee. I hope it still is. I moved far away from the land of java, and SBC is difficult to get in my neck of Virginia. I'm so excited. I too saw the ad that included SBC t-discs in their line-up, in Fine Cooking received last week. I do the TassimoDirect thing, and I am in the site every day looking to see if it's ready to ship. They added it to all the marketing materials I received in my shipment as of three weeks ago. Love my Tassimo.
This is correct. Two new and delicious flavors from the Seattle's Best Collection and let me tell you they are excellant, I haven't stopped drinking them since they first rolled out. Just wait for the future flavors, this is a must buy machine for everyone if they are liking a fast quick drink in the morning. When buying t-discs Wal-mart is a great source for these they are greatly cheaper then tassimodirect.com, except if you want the a wider varity of flavors you must goto the website for now. Like I said just wait to see what the future of this machine will bring with new flavors.
