    I'm off to Starbucks to try one! Mmmm ... they have to know that's their best seller!

I am trying to think of more things that could be combined with the chai lattes because, as much as I love it, I am a bit bored of the chai on its own.

    So strange I was just reading this and my electricity went out yesterday-FPL outage, and when i tried to make my Tassimo coffee this morning Starbucks! the light would only flicker but not go on! It is 4 years old so I called the customer service and I immediatly spoke to a person and they offered me a free shipping label to repair center or a new machine for $110! They cost $169 retail!

    So I am sticking with Tassimo and can't wait for my new machine!

    Maxwell House sells a macchiato for the US but not for Canada. I've tried the Jacobs variety and it was good ... I wonder if the Maxwell House brand one is better?

    Thanks to Rybread for the info.
    I actually bought a lot of k-cups at Kohls, of all places this week. (department store).

    They were on sale (I think they stocked up for Christmas, and are cutting stock, plus .... I had a 30% off coupon. Came out to under $7 a box.

    aero-press is a one cup maker,easier to clean than any french press, bit you need hand dexterity.

    i just tried the toddy cold extract, with the righr grind makes some of the best coffee i have tastes without the acidity, you make a large batch and refrigerate. add boiling water on a 1 to 3 ratio.
    i think i got them both on amazon.
    toddy is supposed to make a lb at a time, but i found the grind i have, i am better making 1/2 lb at a time. otherwise i get a lot of overflow and dry grounds. 12 hour time for the cold brew toddy.
    aero-press= quickest, quicker than french press, but it is really a americano.
    i have heard the toddy makes some of the best iced coffee.

    It's CONFESSIONAL time.....

    I don't drink much coffee so I have no clue what:

    1) Tassimo
    2) Keurig

    but Meh would be my choice but it would probably be Hot Chocolate with those small marsh mellows.

    For ALL those DIE HARD coffee and computer lovers (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) I offer you this Computer Modification:

    Keurig, Brother in law has one in his waiting room, variety of flavors, free. BEST coffee I've ever drank. I venture the smell has a lot to do with that. If they could put THAT smell in a candle, I'd burn one 24/7.

    I remember when I first got my Keurig, which was right after they were introduced (I'm on my second one now) and it was so hard to find K cups anywhere other than online. I use to buy them online and buy huge quantities to get free shipping, but now they are virtually everywhere. I have found them at Stop and Shop, Hannaford's, and the cheapest of all (although small variety) at BJ's Wholesale. It is nice to just be able to buy a box or two instead of dedicating half my hall closet to K-cup boxes.
