-for a regular coffe nothings better then a french press. it only takes a few minutes longer then boiling water in a kettle.
This is true.. but... how long does it take, including cleaning up just to drink a cup of coffee?

The Cadbury Hot Chocolate was such a big disappointment, didn't taste great.

Just brewed a larger cup of coffee with my T55 (has a +large or -small serving setting built in), it seemed to have a similar strength to what it was in fully automated mode. Note that i didn't manually add water, just selected the + on the machine and then brewed.

You can on mine. If you want to short pour you press the button where you want it to stop pouring. To long pour you press and hold the button it when it starts 'finishing' and the green light is blinking, it'll keep pouring until you let go of the button.

The thing is you gotta be right there to do it, can't pre-set it.

Tried a disc of Gevalia caramel espresso from my gf's collection of discs.
Disgusting.

So as much as I like my tassimo, I grew tired of the instamilk crap quick. Went to the mall to check out frothers, and was gonna buy this $100 one that keurig has since I tried it at my brothers.

Stopped by the nespresso booth to waste some time, and try and weasal a free sample lol. The salesman was bored so he went through his spiel with me.

The nespresso makes a good espresso, but, I don't think its worth the price tag, and the tassimo coffee really isn't bad. Asked him about the frothers, and I ended picking up a frother for $100. It does both a hot froth and a cold froth, plus, makes steam milk for those days I want milk and honey, or hot chocolate.

Btw, Nespresso seems to be the Apple of the one cup brew machines. Will probably own one eventually lol. For those that want a frother, its called Aeroccino 3.

Not at all. It looks like a coffee bean grinder, but instead of grinding, it froths.

Make sure you cut open the chocolate syrup t-disk and pour the rest of the syrup in your drink after! Pretty sure it's a design flaw because there is at least half of the syrup still left in the disk after the brew.....=\

Thanks.
depends if you want a coffee maker or a coffee/latte maker.
costco is good on packages that come with x amount of free capsules though.
i think my friend got a keurig and got 50 or 100 free kcups or something.

You're suppose to shake the T-Disc first or you can heat up the chocolate to get it all out.

Yeah thats what i ended up doing after searching around for answers.

Just let it soak in some warm water for a little bit and then proceeded with making that hot chocolate. Tasted that much better!

Also jumped on to the Buy 2 Get One at London Drugs last weekend, got a Gevalia Caramel Mac & Vanilla Latte and a Second Cup Paradiso Dark.

Just go here and enter the Model and Date Code.

Recall

I'm assuming that'll be the site that'll send you a new T-Disc holder.

Your serial has to be under the recall in order to get the new holder. I entered mine in and it doesn't need the new holder. I'm wondering if it's the earlier models that got recalled?
