    This is for Mr Coffee:

    Do you prefer Tassimo to Keurig? Both are one-cup-at-a-time coffee/specialty drink makers. The Keurig is more expensive but offers more of a variety. The Tassimo, let's say, is DEDICATED to the quality of about 25 different coffees, teas, hot chocolates. Okay, okay ... the Keurig does macchiatos ... that I'm jealous of ... but anyway ... which do you prefer?

    I never tried the Tassimo, but my parents bought a Keurig and I loved it! I also will do my own french press sometimes when I really want to get a nice cup. But I'm impressed with the quality of coffee that comes out of this bad boy.

    I have a Keurig and LOVE it. All sorts of coffees and teas, and even hot chocolate. The cups just have to be dropped in and then the quad friendly handle pulled forward and 15 seconds later a cup of delicous joe. I like the Green Mountain and Caribou Coffee's especially.

    o i know i asked about this on facebook, but i totally know what that is because of my OP appointments for my jacked up hip! o baby, they had one in the waiting room and t'was awesome. sooo worth the 50 cents. that stuff gets way hot, though. i want one for at home since i will burn myself with the kitchen aid coffee maker at home.

    maybe i'll ask for that for christmas! i have the room and i'd definitely use it. can you get the coffee online? i'd look but i need to write a story about my school and i'm going to do it in the clock tower's perspective because it does the hourly bong in a "death's coming for you" tone. i'm typing like i had a ton of coffee but it was just water, i swear!

    My s-i-l has the Keurig. I have used it a lot when we have stayed w/ her. Easy, and great coffee. My broke college student daughter thinks I should ask for it for Christmas. Don;t know how she is planning on that, unless she has been delegated by her (working) brothers to shop.

    You can buy Keurig coffee K-cups from Amazon with free shipping if you spend over $25, and there are other great web sites like www.coffeegiant.com that always has good bargains.

    Sorry for the delay in replying Lynnifer, I just read this thread now

    I am a Tassimo fanatic!

    I have owned a machine since they were first introduced into Canada about 2.5 years ago. I am replacing my machine later this week with a newer generation of Tassimo maker that is much better than the one I currently own. I have used mine so much that the compressor has worn out in it lol.

    My sister owns a Kreuig and I have to say that there are things about it I like. There is a massively impressive array of coffees and teas one can buy for the k cup machines. It makes me a little jealous because the choices available to Tassimo users is considerably less. Even more so in Canada than other countries for some reason Although I have to say the choice is getting better, albeit very slowly. I can get a very limited range of choice from the store shelves here. If I want more choice, I have to order it on line or depend on the goodwill of friends and family in the US to ship it to me. However my sister says that she finds a limited range of k cups in the stores here too and she orders most of hers online as well. If one is willing to order online, the choice for Tassimo is significantly expanded.

    One thing I do like a lot about the Tassimo is that the milk disks used to make the lattes, cappucinos, chai, and hot chocolate drinks come in a liquid form. As far as I know, Tassimo is the only single serve machine to have this. Other machines do make lattes and stuff but they use a powered milk. I think the lattes, etc that Tassimo makes taste a lot better because of this.

    Although the choices of kinds coffee and tea for the Tassimo is limited, I am not sure that any other machine makes the range of drinks the Tassimo does, although I could be wrong. It makes coffee, tea, expresso, lattes, cappucinos, chai, and hot chocolate. So that is another thing I like. It is very multi purpose It also has 5 kinds of Starbucks disks and being a Starbucks freak, this appeals to me.

    I think I like the Kreuig machines. But I LOVE the Tassimos. I can't wait to get my new one!
