I haven't tried either of these so bought a few boxes.. Can't go wrong at this price.. And I bought them from the Barrow-in-Furness store

thats a real nice price, its probably store specific though unfortunately. These werent reduced earlier on in the Elgin store.

My local Asda still has the 3 for £10 deal on, but all the good stuff in that deal is gone. If these are reduced to clear them out then I'm having some.

3 for £10 in Staffordshire aswell

Still scanning at £3.98 or 3 for £10 at Asda Eastlands, Manchester.

I only ever buy the Costa americano. Might give this a bash (_;)

none on sale in inverness : (

This is not national, save yourself the trip

Grh

Carte Noir Crema Intenso is nice. Didn't think much of a Kenco Medium Roast. Found it very weak and probably the worst of all the Tassimo pods that I've tried and I've tried most, if not all, of the ones sold in supermarkets.

Great if you can get hold of them in your local Asda at this price.

Costa Americano I would say. It's yummy scrummy!

The best ones are often not available in the high street shops, only from the Tassimo online shop with the minimum £25 spend. They seem to have stopped selling the Suchard Hot Chocolate anywhere other than online - great pity; in my opinion its the only choccy worth having.

Thanks i will try the Choclate one.

Personal preference but I like Crema Intenso, Caffé Crema, Costa Americano. I've had most of the milk based drinks apart from the newest one, Oreo Latte. Don't rate them much because I'm not a fan of the flavour/texture of UHT milk. Also tried all of the hot chocolate drinks and again didn't rate any of them. Either because of UHT milk or the other ones tasted too watery to me plus only make very small cups worth so you really need to use two chocolate pods instead of one per cup!

Tesco and Sainsbury's run three packets of pods for £10 promo from time to time. Try and take advantage of one of those deals if you can. If you haven't already registered your machine, by doing so Tassimo usually give you a £20 credit to use from their on-line store. I believe they offer free delivery over £25? Also if you do a search on here there's often a £10 off code that you can use also. That way you can choose a number of different drinks to try and not paid rrp for them. Once you've tried and decided which drinks you like, Amazon & Costco sometimes have good deals if you buy in bulk.

Hope that helps.

Just for the record the Oreo one is the reason I bought a Tassimo and it's horrible! (And I have a very sweet tooth!)
I have found the caramel latte macchiato to be the best pod I have tried, has anyone tried the cost caramel latte or recommend any?
Also what do you guys who don't use the milk discs use instead?

The best Tassimo Coffee was the Mastro Lorenzo Espresso Intenso, but for some reason the have stopped doing it. Still have a few pods left for special occasions. Was in Asda to try to stock up, but there was very little choice left, bet the shelves are fully stocked the day after the offer finishes.

Most of the coffee ones seem very similar, but they all have a plastic aftertaste. Cut open a new pod, empty out the coffee and pour hot water on the filter then smell it.

The costa caramel latte ones are nice! I also like the carte noire caramel machiatto!

No sign of this deal. Cold.

lots of people complain about plastic after taste. I have done a bit of research. if you get this then your machine is faulty. I don't get the aftertaste from my machine. If bought through Amazon or Curry's return your machine

carte noir amazing including the cappuccino

websites all usual price so must be store specific

I pop some milk in my cup & microwave then do my coffee. Or if I want to add froth I use my bodum milk frother

The oreo and hot chocolate ones are nice but very very small portions. The trick with these ones is to heat the pod in hot water first to make the syrup runny otherwise half the syrup ends up staying in the pod. My favourite is the carte noire caramel latte, I much prefer it over the Costa caramel.

My personal favourite pods are the Caramel Latte Macchiato pods. Although the Crema Intenso pods featured in this deal are fantastic too.

And Asda do this promotion too, and it is currently on (although if you are not quick the shelves get cleared of all the good stuff).

A lot of people mention the Caramel Latte Macchiato, I find that they are too caramel sweet for my taste, and there is barely any coffee taste underneath all the sugar. If you like these kind of drinks then you might consider just buying a Monin caramel (or other flavours) syrup and adding it yourself to a standard coffee. That way you can do exactly to your own taste.

I've also got round the UHT milk problem by just using heated fresh milk and having the machine froth an espresso or Intenso into it.

The Tassimo doesn't do hot chocolate drinks any better than powder that you can buy and mix yourself. In fact the drink sizes are ridiculously small, the temperature is a little more than lukewarm and it works out silly expensive so I don't bother with choc.

Tea is better made in a pot.

Lastly, the packaging is quite wasteful, for each latte there are two plastic pods that have to go to landfill. I heard on HUKD there is a charity recycling option for these now. Some other machines have compatible pods available from other makers, I think Tassimo has patents sewn up so you are compelled to buy them. On the plus side, the coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, unlike competing products.

Good machines for occasional drinks. Coffee addicts might want to consider a proper bean to cup machine.

Overall, I like the Tassimo, though I have adapted mine considerably for my preference.

The good stuff is £3.19 in Tesco - I bought £60 worth, probably saving myself £30

I agree with all this.

I put around 1.5" of milk into a cup, microwave on full power for 40 seconds, and then put the said cup in the Tassimo (Americano) which makes a really nice cup of coffee. No sugar added so you can taste the rich flavours.

£3.19 for 16 Americano Pods at Tesco at the moment which seems to be a good deal, the lowest I have ever managed to purchase the pods at is £3.00 per packet.

@androoski & RobDay

I too use some of the techniques you both mention. I've purchased some coffee syrups (Monin & Starbucks initially but then found ones from Lidl are much better value, bigger bottle for less money!)
Also heat some fresh milk in a mug after pre-heating it with hot water then pop it on the Tassimo machine and have the coffee go straight in. No sugar. Stir and enjoy.

Had a Dolce Gusto machine before theTassimo. One thing I thought was poorly designed was the fact you had to guess when to stop adding hot or cold water, otherwise you'd end up with a diluted flavoured drink. Tassimo automatically dispenses the correct amount of water according to the bar code on the pod. You can top your drink up if you prefer.

Did purchase a bean to cup machine beginning of the year but it was returned for a refund due to having a leak in the water reservoir. Will move onto a 'proper' espresso machine with steam wand next...

A couple of options for those who enjoy milk based drinks such as Latte's or Cappuccino's. Purchase either an electric hand frother (costs under a fiver from eBay or IKEA). Froth milk in a mug, pop it in the microwave and heat to your preference then make an espresso using Tassimo machine directly into mug or Latte glass. Add flavoured syrup if you wish. Also if you really want to go to town. Top with squirty cream then drizzle something like ice cream/dessert sauce on top to give it that Starbucks/Costa look. Other option which I also have used is a Bodum milk frother. Glass beaker with plunger attached to lid. Add milk (works best with cold milk straight from the fridge), lift & lower the plunger really quickly for 30 to 60 seconds to create loads of bubbles. Remove plunger then microwave on high power for 30 to 60 seconds. Watch and be amazed as it creates some really nice dense micro foam. Now depending on what type of milk based drink you wish to make, you'll either need to pour milk into a mug then make an espresso directly into your mug. Or for a cappuccino, using a tablespoon, hold back the really dense foam at the top whilst pouring the milk into your cup containing an espresso, then spoon the foam on top. Sprinkle with Cadbury's Bournville cocoa powder or Cadbury's drinking chocolate powder. Sit back and enjoy, knowing you've produced a reasonable hot drink at a fraction of the cost from a High Street cafe!

Rather go in to a independent coffee shop and £2 for a quality cup. All that hassle to save £2, no thanks

Those Ikea milk frothers are good, £2.50 on Ebay. They run really well on rechargeable batteries but the physically larger ones (vapex) are too tight to fit. The motors wear out though, mine lasted 6 months.

It's almost zero effort to heat milk in the microwave then froth it for 10 seconds.

Hmm, let me see if this will work for me..

Get someone to watch the kids.
Drive car for 10 minutes.
Find somewhere to park.
Queue in coffee shop for 5 minutes
Order coffee, hand over £2.
Stand to the side and wait another few minutes while they mess with frothers and milkers.
Collect coffee, return to car
Drive for 10 minutes
Arrive home
Sit and drink cold coffee.

Yes, you are right. I have no idea why anyone would ever want to make a nice coffee at home......

I use boiled cows milk, it tastes lovely!
