President's Choice Tassimo T-Discs Debut in Canada
Seems like Tassimo is making a big push into Canada and adding more and more brands at the national grocery level. President's Choice is a brand of grocery products available at Loblaws and other national grocery chains in Canada and will now be marketing President's Choice Tassimo T-Discs.
Flavors so far are a mix of coffees and cafe style beverages. We're surprised the names aren't more interesting but then again this is a grocery store retail brand - not Starbucks making T-Discs with Tassimo.
President's Choice T-Disc varieties include:
- Tassimo - President's Choice Great Canadian
- Tassimo - President's Choice Cappuccino
- Tassimo - President's Choice West Coast Dark Roast
- Tassimo - President's Choice Medium Roast
President's Choice T-Discs work in all Tassimo brewers. These T-Discs are not currently sold in USA and only available in Canada. You can use their store finder to see where you can get Tassimo T-Discs from President's Choice here.

Tassimo has replaced our T55 once and a second is on the way due to issues with only PC coffee tdisc.
The water level varies and we always get coffee grinds in the cup, sometimes so bad you cannot drink them and usually when this happens the machine will lock up and we cannot use it until the lock releases to change the disc! I have told them it only happens with the pc brand but they say they have no reports to warrant my conclusion. We have decided not to purchase anymore pc brand and see what happens.
Its too bad because we do enjoy the coffee.
I bought the PC Tassimo "Great Canadian" discs the other day, mostly because they had a 52-pack for around $20. I enjoy the taste quite a bit, it's got a lot more body than the Nabob selections I've tried so far.
PG – Don’t let the number of brands or premium price tags fool you. My Keurig is nothing special. All it does is spray some water over the top of some ok, often overly flavored, grounds. You would be better off getting a cheapo $15 single serve drip maker and saving the money. I’ve actually brewed better coffee from a Kitchen Selective brand single cup brewer I picked up at Big Lots. If you really need flavored coffee I would recommend a BUNN My Café. Better coffee and cheaper pods than Keurig.
My Tassimo was my latest purchase back in January and may be my last. I was hesitant for a while because I wasn’t sure about Maxwell House and Gevalia. However, I picked up a machine at a good price and started trying everything I could. I only looked back long enough to put all my other brewers on the shelf. The engineering of the disc is nothing short of amazing. The fact they can market those discs for less than a little plastic Dixie cup with a filter in it is even more amazing. I was also shocked that the little disc can make Maxwell House French Roast taste better than anything my Keurig made and at a fraction of the cost.
If I compare the price of Maxwel House T Discs to Folgers KCups I find that I can get a 16 pack of discs at Walmart for $5:49 and an 18 pack of Folgers Cups for 10.99. So if I can save 27 cents, or 44%, on every cup of better coffee it seems like a no-brainer to me. Or I can spend a little more and get some Masto Lorenzo or Carte Noir. Plus they have some new brands (King of Joe and Corner Coffeehouse) that I’m looking forward to trying.
Keurig was my introduction to single serve coffee and for that I’m grateful. It’s been a fun and winding road to Tassimo. Having tried so many brewers I can finally rest knowing that Tassimo meets the needs of me and everyone in my family better than any other machine I’ve found.
I've had the Presidents Choice 'Gourmet' medium coffee - the aftertaste was awful (the initial taste wasn't much to write home about either). After 3 faithful years I'm looking to switch it up, it looks like Keurig has way more brands to choose from even if they are a bit pricier.
I was excited when I saw this on the Loblaw's shelves. I gravitated towards the cappuccino as it is my fancy beverage of choice, and found it to be disappointing.
The milk is not powder, and I understand that packaged milk will always have a processed taste to it, but it was just overwhelming artificial. I will be trying the espresso pod separately to check it on it's own.
