    Presidents choice premium blend is $22 for 50 T Discs which is 44 cents. They're quite good.

    Another thing to keep in mind is Bocsh is the maker of Tassimo.

    Anyone I've ever talked to who has both machines has preferred the Keurig. I have never tried the Tassimo though, so I have no idea. I think the Tassimo requires a few more button pushes sometimes, whereas the Keurig is as simple as it can possible get.

    Tassimo only needs one button push. Put in the t-disc, hit the button. The bar code gives the rest of the info to the machine with regards to temp/size etc...

    Sorry, haven't seen those. My understanding was that the T-discs are proprietary and you can only get them from Tassimo. That was from an article a couple years ago, but checking on Amazon I can only find them from Tassimo. I guess this is relatively new?

    I've had the PC K-"Domes" (they have a top and a sturdy dome-shaped filter, but no cup; that saves on cost and packaging size but means you have to keep them in the sealed bag longer, and just take a few out at a time). Those ones I can usually get for 50 cents each ($20 for 40, and that's a small sale). I find it hard to believe they can market the T-discs for less than that, unless it was an introductory price.

    PC premium blend is actually 56 discs for 21.99 plus tax. I was just at the store this afternoon.

    I've only had the Tassimo for a few weeks and for a few months before that I had been considering if I should buy it. The $20 off sale making the cost $60, the fact that you can get Tim Hortons and the decaf Cappucinos clinched it.
    The fact that you can get Nabob, Maxwell House, Second Cup, Gelvalia, and probably others was just an added bonus.

    Sorry, but of that list, Nabob and Maxwell House just make me smile a bit -- those are supermarket coffees. I'm a bit ambivalent to Second Cup -- used to love their Imperial blend (not sure they still have it) but that's about it. My favorite right now is Newman's Own, but they got sold off to Green Mountain (another one of my favorites), so not sure which way that's going to go. There's not Timmy's in K-Cups yet, so far as I know, and that's a shame, but I've tried their coffee before in a regular coffee maker and been underwhelmed.

    Bottom line, right now K-Cups have the widest selection.

    Can you make a cappucino with Keurig?

    Tassimo machine is cheaper and like I've said already the T disc price is competitve.

    Look at all these coffee snobs...

    Wink

    Personally, I'm not a fan of either. I find the coffee that comes out of them is nothing like a true brewed coffee. But, they'll do in a pinch if I just need a quick cup. Brewed is best, with piping hot water. The way it should be. Dammit.

    And before you get yourself off the floor, no, I don't go around pretending you can make a cappuccino from a disc -- you need and espresso machine to start. Already have one. It's decent, and for the number of times I actually feel like having a frouffy coffee I can continue using that.

    *YOU* started all this a while back with your "Tassimo represent!" post, didn't you?

    Problem with a brewed coffee is you need fresh coffee, which means a grinder (which I couldn't use in the mornings due to noise). You also need to make a full pot. You also need clean-up.

    I've gone the brewed route for many years.

    Truth be told, my mom still has her copper Turkish coffee pot (kinda hour-glass shaped) and it still makes one of the better cups I've ever tasted. Yeah, there's the hassle with having to use a strainer, and the cleanup involved, and you've got to babysit it when it's on the stovetop, but it'll never break down on you, and if you brew your coffee in milk it is *fantastic* (we call it Vienna Coffee -- not sure if that's the official term or not).
