We've been sampling the new Yuban Rainforest Alliance for Tassimo and have to say - WOW. We love the smooth body and medium roast flavor along with the rich flavor the coffee provides in each sip. We only received three T Discs of the Yuban to try, and have not shared them with any of the staff at Single Serve Coffee except for a taste from an already brewed cup.
This medium-bodied coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans and Yuban is the world's largest supporter of Rainforest Alliance certified coffee beans. This partnership protects the environment and supports the people and wildlife in coffee growing regions. They come packed 16 T DISCS per package and are only $4.99 per package and are available at Tassimodirect.com.
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?
We just received the Carte Noire Voluptuouso, Carte Noir Petite Dejeuner, Jacobs Kroenung, and the Mastro Lorenzo Espresso T Discs to review. All four of these blends are sold on the TassimoDirect.com web site and are imported from EUROPE for sale here in the US.
We think this is exactly what we've been expecting from Tassimo - give us the best of both worlds - US and the EUROPE coffee and espresso T Discs. Why Philips and other single serve coffee makers have not followed suit for their single serve coffee machine like the Senseo is beyond our comprehension. Give us all the coffees you have to offer world wide - not just a fraction of them.
It appears that many of the T-Discs for the Tassimo system from Kraft, will be found the dairy aisle of your local grocer. They will contain milk and other perishable items inside the T-Disc. Wow. This should make marketing them very interesting in US supermarkets - as there are no coffee products in the dairy aisle minus creamer.
"The ingenious TASSIMO Disc (T-DISC) is designed to work exclusively with the TASSIMO machine. Each T-DISC contains a precisely measured amount of coffee, tea, chocolate or concentrated milk, and is sealed to protect the precious flavors inside."
