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.

Apparently this is Second Cup's second entry into the single serve coffee market but we can't find much about their first go at it.

We continue our reviews of new Canadian T-Discs today with another entry submitted by our Canadian Correspondent, SH. Today he reviews the recent Carte Noire Long Espresso T-Discs. A "long espresso" is pretty much similar to a "lungo" whereby you use the same amount of coffee at the same extraction level but increase the final amount of drink volume in the cup. As a result, you get a super-sized espresso with all the same amount of kick. Sign us up!

We also have the details on the units recalled and a list for you to use to check your brewer and T-Discs after the jump.

There's a new Tassimo in town dubbed the Tassimo T55. Well - maybe not in a US town just yet, but they are launching this machine in Germany this Fall. The Tassimo T55 will use the T-Disc system which makes a perfect drink every time by using the Tassimo bar code scanner built into the T55.
Other features like the +/- button let you set the coffee strength to precisely match your taste. And the integrated BRITA filter in the water tank of this Bosch coffee maker ensures an enhanced quality of drink, while the transparent water tank allows you to see through the machine as if looking through an archway.

The Tassimo Hot Beverage system can make a ton of different coffee drinks and above is the entire chart for them. We've never ordered a Flat White or a Cafe Breve, but all of the other's we've ordered from time to time. Do you know of any other coffee drinks the Tassimo makes that isn't above? If so - click through to Tassimo at Facebook to tell them to update the chart. :-)

The Mavea Maxtra Water Filter for Tassimo Bosch Brewer also comes with a descaler for your Tassimo Bosch Brewer. The water filter also fits Mavea water pitchers so you can use one for coffee and one for pure fresh water.
Our 2 cents on a great cup of coffee - clean - clear - water. The better the water the better the coffee, and the Mavea filter has always done a great job in our Tassimo.

We've long thought the old Tassimo look was well - tired. The gold seal and black background served it well in it's earlier boutique days, but now Tassimo is a mass market brand and needs a broader appeal. Since the latter half of last year Tassimo has been introducing its new look in Europe and it seems like this June it started to make its way into the U.S. and other markets around the world full steam ahead. The new look has been designed by Turner Duckworth.
We like the new look, and it feels more like a palette of hot beverage choices with lots of possibilities instead of such a narrow look with the black and gold of old. We always find it fascinating to see how much a new brand identity can add to a coffee system, and we've seen such things in Senseo, Flavia, and others in the past do wonders with the brand. Our hat's off to Turner Duckworth - great design for a great single serve coffee system.

Some say it's desperate times for the old Brewbot at Tassimo after losing Starbucks Coffee in T-Disc format but is it? Well it's definitely less desperate when Eva Longoria from Desperate Housewives shows up to get a giant cup of espresso at the cup at the Tassimo Brewbot Cafe which opened on Tuesday (May 3) in New York City. We really should pop down to get our giant espresso cup fix, but alas it's so rainy in Boston we lack the motivation - wait - maybe a shot of giant espresso is exactly what we need? EVA AND BREWBOT we're COMING!!!!
