The original release had the Starbucks T Discs for Tassimo debuting sometime in the December time frame, but now it looks like you'll be able to get Starbucks Tassimo T Discs before even Black Friday - just in time for the Thanksgiving shopping extravaganza that occurs the next week. We are looking forward to going to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to get a sample or two (let's hope they have a demo), and to see how the translation of four of Starbucks coffees fair when being brewed in the single serve coffee maker known as Tassimo. The Starbucks T Discs should be available on Tassimodirect.com that day as well and Amazon.com
Note: We've gotten a clarification on the shipping dates. The Starbucks Tassimo T Discs will be available online November 15th, and in-store December 15th.
Tassimo owners will have access to these four Starbucks coffees on November 15th:
That brings the total number of Tassimo beverage offerings to more than 60 worldwide, and a lot sooner than we originally thought. The packaging even looks like Starbucks coffee beans you'd buy in the store.

Okay - perhaps it's not a fire sale just yet, but the Braun Tassimo TA 1400 Hot Beverage System (read our review here) is currently on sale big time. You can pick it up for just under $100 at $97.99. Yep - you'll save over the list price of $169.99 around $42. Wow. Hard to pass this up, and with the new Bosch version of the machine not expected until June 2008, you'll need a Tassimo to drink the new Starbucks T Discs coming out in December.

Kraft Foods Inc. makers of Tassimo said on Tuesday it has struck deals with Starbucks Corp and Bosch Household Appliances to fuel growth of its Tassimo hot beverage system, which the company said was on track to become a $200 million brand by year's end.
What does this mean? Really it means you'll have 4 Starbucks coffee blends and the Tassimo Hot Beverage System will be made by Bosch instead of Braun the current appliance maker. When do you get these new changes? The new coffees will come in December, and the new Bosch made Tassimo brewers will come in July of 2008.
Tassimo owners will have access to thse four Starbucks coffees in December:
That brings the total number of Tassimo beverage offerings to more than 60 worldwide. We couldn't be more happy with these announcements. It means Starbucks is finally in the single serve coffee game, and it also means a new single serve coffee brewer from Bosch.

The Jacobs Latte Macchiato T Discs for Tassimo look yummy - very yummy. A combination of velvety milkiness, a touch of sweetness and intense espresso, topped with fine foam. Tassimo recommends serving in a clear glass to appreciate the rich layering of colors and fine foam that form and we concur. This combination package includes 8 Jacobs Espresso T DISCs and 8 milk creamer T DISCs. And it will only cost you $8.99 per package to get into Jacobs Latte Macchiato heaven.

We've yet to review the Gevalia Latte T-Discs for Tassimo, but we've had our fair share of cappuccinos and lattes using other T-Disc combos. Given the other T-Discs we've reviewed, these two packs are priced right at just $17.98 for 16 total lattes you can make with your Tassimo Hot Beverage system. At just over $1 a latte, that's going to save you a bunch of money over your coffee house latte that will run you over $3 a drink. Get 'em while they're hot!

Some mornings you want a light cup of coffee and some mornings you want a coffee that can pick you up and be a bit on the darker side. Gevalia Morning Roast has just come out for Tassimo and it's in the darker camp. What do we think? is this a good alternative to a lighter cup of coffee in the morning to get things kicked off?

We just spent the weekend kicking back with our Tassimo brewing up the Twinings Chai Tea Latte T Discs. We've got quite the crew of Chai Tea Latte drinkers here at Single Serve Coffee. Often, the entire crew will venture out to Starbucks to get what they consider the "best Chai Tea Latte" around. Other Chai Tea Lattes can be had at Pete's coffee, or even at Dunkin Donuts. Each of the Chat Tea Lattes are always a bit different at the various coffee shops. The Starbucks Chai Tea latte is considered to be the most balanced with sweetness and milky goodness and Pete's is in solid second place.
So, this brings us back to the do it at home Chai Tea Latte crowd. The Twinings Chai Tea Latte T Discs for Tassimo consist of a Chai Tea T Disc and a Latte creamer milk T Disc. You combine these two T Discs into one Chai Tea Latte that you can make at home. How does the Twining Chai Tea Latte stack up against our local coffee shops? Does our staff like the Twinings Chai Tea Latte as an alternative to a $4.50 drink at a coffee shop?

We're very excited Tassimo is continuing to come out with amazing drinks for their hot beverage system. One of the staff here at Single Serve Coffee (Maya over at Kitchen Contraptions) is probably the biggest Tai Chi Latte fan we've ever seen. Not only does she purchase a Tai Chi Latte just about everywhere we go, she's yet to be impressed with us making her one at the office.
Hopefully these new Twinings Chai Tea Latte Tassimo T Discs will pass her stringent test. The Twinings Chai Tea Latte Tassimo T Discs come packed with 8 chai tea t discs and 8 latte t discs allowing you to make 8 Twinings Chai Tea Lattes. These T Discs will work in your Tassimo TA1400 and TA1200 hot beverage systems.
We'll have a full run down on Monday. If you can't wait and need to order they are available at Tassimo and at Twinings Chai Tea Latte for Tassimo Coffee and Beverage Makers.

Keurig and K Cup display at Bed Bath & Beyond
We've been making our way around several stores lately to see what Tassimo and Keurig have to offer in more brick and mortar environment instead of online. After a recent visit to Bed Bath & Beyond (you can use their store locater here), we were quite surprised to see Keurig and Tassimo back to back in a store offering. Don't get us wrong, it's not odd to see both in the same single serve coffee aisle - or single cup coffee offering area - but it was pretty stunning to see a wall of both T Discs and K Cups in a mid-aisle single serve coffee offering.
